GOP insiders bury Trump: ‘It would take video of a smiling Hillary drowning puppies’ for him to win
The despair over Donald Trump’s candidacy has reached new lows among Republican insiders this week.
One day after Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak said that Republicans faced an “extinction-level event” this fall if Trump didn’t drastically change course, several anonymous GOP insiders tell Politico that it’s time to stick a fork in The Donald’s presidential aspirations.
“Trump is underperforming so comprehensively,” fumed one Iowa Republican. “It would take video evidence of a smiling Hillary drowning a litter of puppies while terrorists surrounded her with chants of ‘Death to America.'”
A Wisconsin Republican, meanwhile, bemoaned the fact that Trump is woefully far behind Clinton when it comes to creating a competent get-out-the-vote operation in key swing states.
“Considering the disadvantage a GOP candidate starts with, the work in key targeted states like Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania has to be error-free,” he said. “There is no evidence that Trump has done that or that he has much of a ground game to begin with.”
Even one Republican who said Trump still had a chance to turn it around conceded that his time is running out very quickly — and said that “if he doesn’t move in 15 days, it’s effectively over.”
