The following post is going to sound kinda conspiracy-theory-ish. That makes me a little queasy – but hear it out.
The headlines over the weekend were all about Trump.
As in, all of them. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, even Hillary and Bernie, could barely buy a headline; as they used to say, they “couldn’t get arrested”…
…which, for one of the candidates, is suddenly not such a quaint expression.
And while Republicans more or less dropped the “Trump is really a stealth Democrat” meme a long time ago, this weekend started me wondering.
Lesser Of Three Goods: Let’s say for the moment that Trump is a sincere Republicans. As we’ve seen, he’s also the Republican that Hillary would rather face (assuming the polls are legitimate). They keep the focus on him,
So anything that helps Trump to the nomination, presuming the polls are legit, benefits Hillary.
Distracted: When was the last time you heard anyone outside the conservative alt-media talking about Hillary’s email server, much less Benghazi?
Follow The Money: The “protests” have largely been associated with Bernie Sanders’ supporters…
…but have gotten ample financial support from the cabal of liberal plutocrats and their shills that’ve been working for Hillary Clinton for nearly 20 years, now?
Connect The Dots, People: So the “protests” simultaneously promote a candidate the Democrats would prefer to face, starve the dangerous ones of media coverage during the heart of primary season, keep the media’s attention off of the marching band of skeletons banging on drums in Hillary’s closet, and provide a couple of layers of separation between Hillary and the protesters, even providing another entire campaign to blame if needed?
I mean, yes, it sounds all Art Bell-y – but isn’t that the beauty of it?
