It’s a good move – works whether he zigs or zags.
Quits: “The election is rigged. I won’t climb in the ring for a fixed fight.”
Loses: “The election was rigged. That’s why I lost.”
It’s also another reason why he can’t win. You can’t whine and mewl that the fix is in, and then claim the results are legitimate because you actually won.
Trump always wins. When he goes bankrupt, HE wins…everyone else loses.
This is no different.
You don’t rig a fight by paying someone to win. You rig a fight by paying someone to take a dive. The whole point of the fix is simply to know the outcome. You can bet for the winner, bet against the loser, pick the round.
“Say it…Your ass goes down in the 5th.”
Donald knows the outcome. Despite the fact that all his efforts to throw this thing – blatant racism, insults, slander, madness – only make him more popular with the rubes he’s conning, worming his way out of ever being president is the one thing he can control.
THAT’S the single thing he knows and, therefore, that’s where he will stack his chips.
All that remains is to find the best excuse that lets him play the victim.
The media is against him, the Democrats are against him, the REPUBLICANS are against him…
The racist Black Lives Matters people – they hate him.
Fags and Liberals…the Christian haters – they hate him, too.
Mexican judges hate him.
No one stands up for the troops – no one LOVES the troops like Donald, who wants to make America safe, but he’s being attacked by Muslims!!!
(Some people say their son was a jihadi…I read that many times.)
Poor righteous Donald.
The only question is whether he picks a round to flop or makes it to the final bell.
If he gets off his stool for the debates, Hillary will absolutely crush him. Any question of who wins the election will be settled by some significant margin as a matter of which one is the sane adult and which is a blathering idiot (not that there were any doubt).
He will be rude, petulant, shallow, uninformed, insulting, untethered and mendacious. He will try to bully Clinton in his juvenile schoolyard fashion. Whether she slaps him back or rises above it won’t matter.
He ain’t prepared for any of this.
Debating Yale law 30-year policy wonk Hillary Clinton…dog, that’s the big leagues. She will kick the absolute last bit of shit out of that delusional and ignorant puffed up grifter.
I watched all 11 hours of her testimony before Trey Gowdy’s little Benghazi ratfuck. I’ve never much liked Hillary Clinton but, brother, let me tell you something: she is SHARP, and she knows exactly how and when to punch. She’s the real deal heavyweight and anyone who underestimates her is making a terrible mistake.
Except, of course, in the eyes of Trump’s Jersey Shore supporters, who only want to see him be rude to Hillary. In their eyes, all his playground haymakers landed. He smoked her on rude points alone!
He TRUMPED that bitch!
It won’t matter that the fight is scored 65-35 on all three judges cards; that the Republican party from Mitch McConnell on down all withdrew their endorsements; that Sarah Palin finally threw in the towel and publicly voted for Hillary…
For Snooki and The Situation, the fix was in all along.
Snooki and Sitch are 100% right – the fix is in.
It just ain’t that fix.
“How do we get progressives and Liberals to vote for a hawkish, fiscally conservative candidate that’s in the pocket of the oligarchy and pals around with Henry Kissinger?”
Make the alternative too monstrous and ugly to contemplate.
