“Bill,” exclaimed an excited Donald Trump in a phone call to his good friend and political advisor, Bill Clinton, “I think I found the answer!” Trump was referring to his last conversation with the former president about how to sabotage his campaign. (Bill Clinton’s 3 AM Phone Call)
“ I just lost Wyoming and Washington D.C., big time.” said Trump referring to his losses in the two latest nominating contests. “The pundits are saying it was all because of the violence at my rallies.”
“Good work,” said Clinton. “I had a feeling all the uproar was going to cost you. But, hey, I thought that whole David Duke, KKK thing would hurt you too.”
“Hurt me?” said Trump. “My numbers went up! My pea-brain followers were loving that I didn’t diss Duke by renouncing his support … well, at least up front.”
“I’m being hit by all sides for not trying to stop the mayhem,” added Trump. “Get this, even Rubio and Kasich now say they may reconsider their support for me as the nominee because of all the chaos!”
“I got to hand it to you, buddy, I thought you telling your numskulls not to worry about attacking protesters because you’d pay their legal bills was genius.”
“Yea, my campaign people are pretty smart,” said Trump. “They also came up with how, in the old days, protesters were taken out on stretchers.”
“Well, we will see if this works for you on Tuesday,” said Clinton.
On March 15, primaries will be held in the big states of Florida and Ohio, along with Illinois. Missouri and North Carolina. Trump victories in all or most of these high stakes winner-take-all contests could make the real estate mogul, turned TV reality star, turned politician essentially unstoppable.
“Don’t get your hopes up too high,” cautioned Clinton. “You just might do very well. With your crazy dimwit followers you never know.”
Proving once again Clinton is a master at understanding the political landscape, there have been reports that many Trump followers believe the violence at Trump rallies is the handiwork of the GOP. Distrust of the Republican establishment is so high that some Trump supporters think the protestors popping up at Trump rallies are Republican plants.
Some supporters are now blaming the recent unrest in Chicago on supporters of Bernie Sanders – “Bernie’s crowd,” as Trump sneered in his speech – and the Black Lives Matter movement, which frequently protests Trump events.
“You’re right, Bill,” said Trump. “As they say, que sera sera. I do keep thinking of that George Carlin line, tough: “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”
“Cheer up,” said Clinton, “ You might get schlonged by the two Cubans. Eight a.m. tee time Saturday, right?”
