I’m a Trump fan, but not a fanatic.
I appreciate much of what Trump did for America. Who knows where the country would be had he not shocked the sh*t out of Leftists to win against Hillary Clinton.
The deal was done for Clinton. The Leftist powers-that-be stacked the deck against Trump and still failed. His numbers blew the algorithm. They issued this would not be repeated in 2020.
So The Big Cheat occurred. Trump was out. Nevertheless he remains relevant. But as I have explained many times, Trump must stop making rookie mistakes.
Currently he’s still surrounded by bad advisors. Many of these people are so insecure, they refuse to allow talented people anywhere near Trump. He’s oblivious to this fact.
Kurt Schlichter wrote a great piece on all of this.
In his article, “If You Like Donald Trump, Then You Want a Real Primary“, Schlichter makes the case for a primary.
Time for some real talk about our favorite ex-president – this Dr. Oz endorsement reaffirms what we have all been seeing, that Donald Trump is losing his edge. Seven years after coming down the escalator and revolutionizing American politics by advocating the conservative/populist agenda that the bipartisan ruling caste had ignored for decades as our country swirled around the bowl, it is looking like we in the base have evolved while Trump is stuck in 2016, hitting golf balls, sending out his communiqués, and attending rallies that evoke but do not match the good old days. He can still turn it around, but right now, the truth is that he’s messing up – and someone needs to tell him the truth.
His bizarre endorsement of Dr. Oz for the Pennsylvania Senate seat, greeted with a collective “What the hell was he thinking?” among the base, is only the latest of his tone-deaf maneuvers. It seems like he wants to run again in 2024, but #TrumpWorld is giving off the definite impression that he expects a coronation. If you like Trump, the last thing you want is a cakewalk. If you like Trump, you want him to fight for it and earn it.
While I’m not sold on primarying Trump, I agree with parts of what was written.
Dr. Oz is definitely one example.
Was he perfect? No. But who is?
Mr. President, you are screwing up. You need to get your head right and get back in the game, whether as a candidate or a kingmaker.
Trump desperately needs a primary to get back in touch with the base.
You can’t be a kingmaker if you can’t make kings.
Or maybe, just maybe, Trump succeeds once again.
