Is Trump Voting For Bernie?


As of last week, who’s Bernie Sanders’ biggest booster?


Donald Trump, of course.
Trump loves Bernie

First the Donald said he would debate Sanders.  Then he said he wouldn’t. Then he said he would. Then he wouldn’t.  The news media loved it.  Another opportunity to trash Trump – who, like most people, really doesn’t care what the media think. In any case, there was method in Trump's madness:  by going back and forth, "will he or won't he?", Trump was able dominate the news cycle for a week, distract people from Elizabeth Warren's criticisms and hit "Crooked Hillary" where it really hurts -- painting her as an illegitimate candidate, a faux liberal -- and a symbol of the corruption of Establishment politics.

Love Trump or hate him -- he has a point :  Hillary is  crooked.  Worse, she's lame.
There oughta' be a law. Oh..there IS?
Among other things, the Debate debate also benefits Bernie.
 

People who don't like Trump call him a coward. Ummm...that's most of the media.  And so far, he has invited every other nasty epithet -- so why not?

Is Trump a conformist?

And, after all, Sanders does do  better in the polls versus Trump than Hillary who in some surveys now lags behind nationally. 
Can Clinton win?

But:


Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and Deborah Wasserman Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, and now that I am the presumptive Republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second place finisher. Likewise, the networks want to make a killing on these events and are not proving to be too generous to charitable causes, in this case, women’s health issues. Therefore, as much as I want to debate Bernie Sanders -  and it would be an easy payday - I will wait to debate the first place finisher in the Democratic Party, probably Crooked Hillary Clinton, or whoever it may be.

Is China more democratic?
That was Trump’s statement. 

Notice how he uses the phrase “Crooked Hillary” twice --and refers to the “totally rigged” Democratic nominating process -- which amounts to calling her dishonest three times.

Now, not everyone thinks Hillary is "crooked" -- but almost everyone  agrees the Democratic nominating process is rigged.  So, Crooked Hillary is a PR skid mark --hard to white wash.  An ounce of prevention...?    Can we teach the whole nation to wipe?
How to avoid another stain on national honor

Notice also that Trump says that he wanted the money to go to women’s health issues – but the media are doing what they do best -- getting in the way .  Women's health issues?  Suddenly Trump is a Justin Trudeau feminist? 
Ivanka wins hands down

And, of course, the Media were all on board for this Debate. Can't throw Christians to the Lions because the Lions have mostly been shot by dentists. There are also animal cruelty laws. So a debate is the next best spectacle.  Sorta mental vivisection.

Still a lot of people are willing to believe the Media hate women, as Trump somehow suggests.  Of course, most people, especially those on the Right,  believe the Media hate babies too.  Not to mention pandas and Julian Assange's kitten.
   

The whole debate issue  is a con – of course – but what else is American politics?  Once again, Hillary loses.  The Media loses.   Trump gains.  Along with his bro' Bernie. 

Don't take any of this  seriously.   Politics is a circus.  And remember to wipe.
