I can read Trump like a book. I must have known this man in a past life. I can read him like a book. And with great amusement. So what is he thinking now? Right now, he knows what I know. Hillary Clinton is going to pick Bernie Sanders as her VP. This will send shock waves to the punditry because they have tried so hard to set up Hillary for failure by planting hints that she should pick either Elizabeth Warren or Tom Kaine (is that the spelling on this person’s name??)
Hillary is a lot of things but the one thing she is not, is a damn fool. She is not going to pick either of these people. I know it and Trump knows it.
So what is he doing? Why is he talking about Bernie Sanders? Understand this about Trump’s strategy: He only talks about someone (his rivals in this campaign) when he smells a threat. He is a kind of animal who only has to smell a threat to go into attack mode. Go back to the primaries and look at all the attacks. They preceded, or were immediately subsequent to, some type of advancement of the rival. Ben Carson rising in the polls? All these horrible stories come out about him and Trump does the “belt” and almost derails his entire campaign (thank god the terrorist attacks happened in Paris – for his sake!) Kasick, He completely ignored till it began to sound like Kasich and Cruz could oust him at a contested convention. Marco Rubio did not become “little Marco” till it looked like he was gaining one too many billionaire bffs. And poor Jeb!
Now. Think about Bernie Sanders. The man is finished, right? He lost. He will not be the democratic nominee. He is absolutely no threat to Donald Trump. Donald Trump is in an epic fight to win this election and he is wasting time talking about Bernie Sanders and Sanders’ sentiments towards Hillary Clinton???
Who does Trump think he is fooling?!
Trump smells a threat.
He senses something. And he has to discredit it. This is a pre-emptive strike. This is his way of saying to voters: “don’t be impressed with this Clinton/Sanders ticket. It is fake. The man can’t stand his running mate.”
Remember you heard it here first.
Bernie Sanders will be Hillary Clinton’s running mate.
It will be the winning ticket.
Trump knows it and he is trying to kill it.
