You know Donald Trump’s campaign is doing poorly when the man starts throwing around nonsensical attacks, trying to discredit the media’s use of quotes from his own campaign. DO NOT BELIEVE THE THINGS THAT MY OWN PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ME.
Anytime you see a story about me or my campaign saying "sources said," DO NOT believe it. There are no sources, they are just made up lies!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016
Whereas "many people are saying" is solid-as-a-rock sourcing. https://t.co/FB84u0Hsdz— Joanna Robinson (@jowrotethis) September 30, 2016
The things that his own campaign is saying? That Trump wasn’t prepared for the first debate. That they’re worried about Trump’s ability to prepare for the second debate. That Chris Christie may take charge where it concerns debate prep. That Trump is considering another campaign shake-up and that Roger Ailes may take over as campaign manager.
He may also just be lashing out because the morning polls in Michigan and New Hampshire don’t look good for him. He’s down by 7 now in both states.
So, what does a bully who is getting beat up do? He goes nuclear on a woman who dared to criticize him.
Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an "angel" without checking her past, which is terrible!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016
Using Alicia M in the debate as a paragon of virtue just shows that Crooked Hillary suffers from BAD JUDGEMENT! Hillary was set up by a con.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016
Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016
Good god, man. Is that all you got? That Hillary Clinton has been playing the long con on you, that she engineered Machado’s citizenship two months ago anticipating that you would fall into her trap at the debate, lash out against the former Miss Universe, double down on it all week, and that Trump surrogates and the embodiments of health Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich would continue to trash Machado for her weight, and that Trump himself would embark on a slut/fat shaming tirade.
If so, that’s the kind of long con I want a President to be able to pull off, someone able to anticipate a challenger’s moves two months in advance, plan accordingly, set a trap for him, and then stick the knife in his throat when he’s hanging from the net.
That is wicked smart. Sounds like Hillary wasn’t the one who got duped, bro. It sounds like you got duped.
