Dem strategist rips low debate bar set for Trump: ‘This isn’t America’s Got Presidential Talent’

Published

on

Democratic strategist and media consultant Joel Silberman appeared on MSNBC Sunday to talk about the low expectations set for Republican nominee for president Donald Trump.

“I would call the expectations game a trap,” Silberman said, who appeared alongside conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt, “because they seem to be saying that as long as Mr. Trump stands up and doesn’t sigh or flip his lid or go off the rails, that that was ‘presidential,’ and that’s hardly a presidential standard.”

“This isn’t ‘America’s Got Presidential Talent,'” he said.

When the topic was raised as to whether Trump might bring up Pres. Bill Clinton’s adulterous affairs in the debate, Silberman pointed out that Trump’s own previous marriages have ended in infidelities, rancor and divorce.

“Well, I think if Mr. Trump dares to bring up infidelity, I would remind him that people in glass houses should do the nasty in the basement,” he said, “because he’s a well-chronicled adulterer.”

Silberman works for progressive organization Democracy Partners and has coached politicians and media personnel for debates and other appearances.
