I think I’ve figured out this Trump thing. He and the Clintons have conspired to destroy the Republican Party. It took some work, but thanks to Donald’s natural acting ability, honed after years as a reality show star he managed to convince Americans (a) that he was a conservative and (b) that he didn’t like the Clintons. Not so long ago it was Donald who told Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, “Hilary Clinton I think is a terrific woman, I live in New York. She lives in New York. I really like her and her husband both a lot. I think she really works hard. I like her.”
After all it was Hillary Clinton who took a seat in the front pew at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, one of 450 guests on the balmy Saturday night in January 2005 when Donald Trump tied the knot with Melania, his third wife. At the reception that followed, Bill Clinton joined his wife, who at the time was United States Senator.
As for the conservatism, Trump has gone on record as being pro-choice, he also even now is in favour of universal health care. On foreign policy he is no xenophobe—“I’ll make a deal with Putin or anybody.” And if one needs more proof of Trump’s comfort in leftish company, take a closer look at the guest list for his wedding. It included such notables such as Katie Couric, Matt Lauer, Rudy Giuliani, Heidi Klum, Star Jones, P. Diddy, Shaquille O’Neal, Barbara Walters, Conrad Black, Regis Philbin, Simon Cowell and Kelly Ripa, in addition to the Clintons. With the exception of Mssrs. Black and Guiliani all are liberals.
Under my scenario, Trump wins the Republican nomination, and voters are so scared they flock to the otherwise unpopular Clinton, in such numbers that the Democrats regain control of congress. As for Trump he gets any posting he wants—even Secretary of State; where he can look into the eyes of Putin and see if it’s any different from what George W. thought he saw.
