Trump’s New Post-Video Strategy: Attack Republicans Being Mean To Him

Sunday, October 9, 2016 12:23
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

One would think if you have people calling on you to step down from your role as the GOP nominee and rescinding endorsements, it might be a good idea to regroup, hunker down and figure out how to climb out of the hole you’ve dug for yourself.

But when you’re Donald Trump, the strategy that seems to work better is to stay in the hole and ask for a better shovel in order to dig deeper.

Via Jonathan Martin at the NY Times, the Trump campaign has sent out talking points telling surrogates to go after Republicans who have unendorsed and/or to step down:

I guess he thinks a bunch of Congressional Republicans, most of whom are going to win re-election easily, are worried about their political futures.  Trump thinks his attacks will make them lose:

Trump, who has never done much forward thinking, doesn’t seem to realize he will need a GOP Congress to get anything done, should he pull of a miracle, and actually win next month.

Dan Foster of National Review spells it out:

Does Trump even realize this? Or does he actually think Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is going to move forward with any of the people on that list of potential justices?

But this is who he is. His campaign troubles are of his own making, but he can’t seem to get past what he considers to be personal slights. Thus, this new “strategy.”

Good luck with that.

    The RINO’s have been looking for any out from trump,. they are ALL CFR members as is clinton.. they belong to the same club!
    I would further point out that while trump may or may not have said something troubling to some people, BILL CLINTON RAPES WOMEN and hillary clinton remains loyal and married to a RAPIST!

    hillary defends and remains loyal and married to a rapist.. benghazi, 33k illegally deleted emails, perjury to congress, missing 6 billion dollars a the state dept, laughs about getting a rapist “of a 12 yr old girl charges dismissed, Lied to the gold star families about a film being responsible for the death of their loved ones and then calls them liars, has openly and consistently said she will bomb Syria, threatens to bomb iran and russia,
    Is there really any comparison between something that was allegedly said over a decade ago and her ongoing CRIME WAVE??

    Remember the head of the fbi admitted under oath that hillary lied to congress which under 18 USC 1001 is a felony!
    Hillary admitted under oath in a congressional hearing that she destroyed government documents which under 18 USC 793(f) is at least 33k felonies!
