The Queen and Her Court Jester

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tightening their grips on the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations.

The Presidential campaign of 2016 has been unprecedented on many levels. The rise of Donald Trump has been an absolute spectacle to watch unfold. His machine gun like verbal assaults on Hispanics, Muslims, and African-Americans have become a campaign staple. His overwhelming lack of knowledge on basic governing is startling. He’s putting all of his stupid out there for everyone to see! And that is a whole lotta STUPID.

But, that’s what he is being paid for… right?

The way I see it…

Trump/Clinton = Bandit/Snowman in Smokey and the Bandit.

Donald Trump is just running interference for Hillary Clinton.

With the majority of Americans disliking Clinton, this interference is a must.

And this is the way I see it going down… Brilliant, yes! Sad, yes! Yes, very sad indeed.

Coming to the end of George Bush’s second term Hillary Clinton thought she couldn’t loose her run for president in 2008. One thing she didn’t account for was now President Obama and his ability to connect to people on a human level. Obama pretty much stole the show from Hillary… and she didn’t care for it one bit.

After the 2008 election, I believe Hillary went to work every day with full intent to be elected president in 2016. Laying out a plan to step by step become the first female president. A large part of this plan is to feed the GOP base exactly what they want…

If you could create a human in the mold of the stereotypical Republican…

He would hate Mexicans, Muslims, African-Americans, and them damn Gays!

But, most of all he would hate President Obama! (Followed closely by Hillary Clinton)

jesterHe would be white.

He would be wealthy.

He would be full of shit.

He would look and sound like Donald Trump… right?

He would appeal to the lowest common denominator of his target demography (frustrated under educated white males) by making outlandish comments about the above mentioned Mexicans, Muslims, African-Americans, and the LGBT community. This would fire up the base while still alienating most everyone else.  Take the support of the base but not enough support to win the general election. Give the country a demon to hate more than they hate Clinton. Maybe the only way she could win…

The windfall has been more than they ever could have imagined. Conservative Republicans have fallen in line behind Trump by the millions, and seem to have dug in their heels. While Trump has taken his campaign to new lows with the recently released Billy Bush tapes. And the polls sure reflect it!

It looks as if the Clinton plan has worked way better than they ever dreamed. And with only less than a month until the election, it looks as if the Queen will be taking her throne very soon. The role of Jester has been played well by Trump. Hell… it’s just the Donald being the Donald. As a result we will have the nation’s first female president.

God save the Queen…
