Look, Donald is Donald. An ego the size of New York, and the people who know Donald know how to stroke it. One of those people is Bill Clinton. According to multiple reports, Bill Clinton talked with Donald Trump and encouraged him to run as a Republican to influence the GOP.
Now, if CRUZ had received this call, the Trumpite sites like theconservativetreehouse.com and Breitbart would literally explode with headlines about betrayal! But when Trump does it, all we get a “meh…” .
Read this and see what you think.
“…Former president Bill Clinton had a private telephone conversation in late spring with Donald Trump at the same time that the billionaire investor and reality-television star was nearing a decision to run for the White House, according to associates of both men.
Four Trump allies and one Clinton associate familiar with the exchange said that Clinton encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party and offered his own views of the political landscape. …”
“…Trump took the call from his office in Trump Tower in New York, according to the four allies, who requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly. The call came as Trump was making a final decision about whether to run, and he was candid about his political ambitions and his potential interest in seeking the White House during the talk, these allies said.
The 42nd president listened intently and then analyzed Trump’s prospects and his desire to rouse the GOP base, the Trump allies said.
The tone of the call was informal, and Clinton never urged Trump to run, the four people said. Rather, they said, Clinton sounded curious about Trump’s moves toward a presidential bid and told Trump that he was striking a chord with frustrated conservatives and was a rising force on the right.
One person with knowledge of Clinton’s end of the call said the former president was upbeat and encouraging during the conversation, which occurred as Trump was speaking out about GOP politics and his prescriptions for the nation. ..”
Trump took the call…. . Which means Clinton reached out as his wife was running for President and encouraged Donald J Trump to run for the Republican side, knowing full well the unstable, ego driven, personality Trump exhibits publicly. Now Trump is a narcissist. A former two time President, whom he likes, tells him HE can be President too, and Trump is all over the idea. Trump is easily manipulated because he has no moral core. Clinton, if nothing else, is a master manipulator.
But did Clinton want Trump to really win? Or just undermine the Republican effort to beat his wife?
Either way, this campaign is shaping up to this simple fact; Out of three hundred and twenty million people in our nation, a hundred million able to run for the White House we are down to Bill Clinton’s friend running against Bill Clinton’s wife for President.
And nobody seems to think that’s a bit odd, especially the Trumpite who see nothing but the opportunity for revenge.
And that alone says so much about the condition of our nation.
