Not everyone is miserable about the Republican nominee. Shrillary’s people have pinned all of their hopes on Trump’s candidacy — as we can see in this WikiLeaked email from Brent Budowsky to campaign chairman John Podesta, dated last March 13:
Right now I am petrified that Hillary is almost totally dependent on Republicans nominating Trump….she has huge endemic political weaknesses that she would be wise to rectify…..even a clown like Ted Cruz would be an even money bet to beat and this scares the hell of out me…..
Budowsky is a left-wing journalist, but he isn’t totally clueless. He also noted in his email that Shrillary is a habitual liar:
Hillary should stop attacking Bernie, especially when she says things that are untrue, which candidly she often does.
Cruz’s appeal was admittedly limited even before his career-crippling Trump endorsement, but as with all of the Republican candidates other than The Donald, he would have had an excellent chance of beating the nearly unelectable Shrillary. Rubio or Kasich, despite their flaws, would have routed her.
This may be why the Dem-supporting media kept the lid locked on their Pandora’s box of Trump revelations until the final month.
