So…. more good stuff from Wikileaks’ exposure of Clinton consigliere, John Podesta’s, hacked email. This time from CNBC’s John Harwood in the Boulder primary debate:

This is the whole incident at reported by Politico:

“Let’s be honest: Is this the comic book version of a presidential campaign?” Harwood asked.

”That’s not a very nice question,” Trump said, before referring to the fact that CNBC contributor Larry Kudlow said he liked Trump’s tax plan.

Harwood then followed up, saying he had talked to economic advisers who have served presidents of both parties about Trump’s tax plan: “They say you have as much chance of cutting taxes that much without increasing the deficit as you would of flying away from that podium by flapping your wings.”

Trump exploded.

“Then you would have to get rid of Larry Kudlow … who came out the other day and said ‘I love Trump’s tax plan,’” Trump said.

As it turns out, it seems the whole incident was planned by Harwood who later boasted of it in an email to Clinton consigliere, John Podesta:


As I wrote earlier, this is the kind of behavior that gives credence to Donald Trump’s claim that the game is rigged. Here you have a major reporter conniving to get an overreaction out of a candidate while, at the same time, that reporter is boasting about his actions to a senior Democrat operative with close ties to Hillary Clinton and praising Hillary Clinton in other emails. The real surprise is not that Harwood is a duplicitous douchenozzle but why the RNC allowed such an egregious ass to moderate to begin with.
