The refreshing silence you hear on social media is the deranged Trumpkins slinking back under their rocks, mixing the Koolaid, ready to slurp it all down.
Donald Trump‘s chief lieutenants told skeptical Republican leaders on Thursday that the GOP front-runner has been ‘projecting an image’ so far in the 2016 primary season and ‘the part that he’s been playing is now evolving’ in a way that will improve his standing among general election voters.
The message, delivered behind closed doors in a private briefing, is part of the campaign’s intensifying effort to convince party leaders that Trump will moderate his tone in the coming months to help deliver big electoral gains this fall, despite his contentious ways.
Even as his team pressed Trump’s case, he raised fresh concern among some conservatives by speaking against North Carolina’s ‘bathroom law’, which directs transgender people to use the bathroom that matches the sex on their birth certificates.
Trump also came out against the federal government’s plan to replace President Andrew Jackson with the civil-rights figure Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.
So it’s confirmed what all sane people have known during this charade: He’s a leftwing liberal running interference for Granny Clinton. Now we can get down to business and nominate an actual Republican at the convention in July.
The developments came as the GOP’s messy fight for the White House spilled into a seaside resort in south Florida.
While candidates in both parties fanned out across the country before important primary contests in the Northeast, Hollywood’s Diplomat Resort & Spa was transformed into a palm-treed political battleground.
Trump’s newly hired senior aide, Paul Manafort, made the case to Republican National Committee members that Trump has two personalities: one in private and one onstage.
‘When he’s out on the stage, when he’s talking about the kinds of things he’s talking about on the stump, he’s projecting an image that’s for that purpose,’ Manafort said in a private briefing.
‘You’ll start to see more depth of the person, the real person. You’ll see a real different guy,’ he said.
How can he even have a shred of credibility left? You’ll see a different guy? And what the hell would that be?
