There has been increased speculation in recent weeks that Donald Trump’s campaign may be faltering. There are many who have attested he may lose the election. While I’m not entirely convinced he will experience defeat in November, the thought of Trump’s ass getting royally kicked on Election Day is an enticing one.
Perhaps even he is beginning to come to the realization that his efforts to win the White House may be futile? Any response to that question would be conjecture, but comments Trump made at a rally in Fairfield, Conn. seem to indicate the possibility is at least on his mind:
“Can you imagine how badly I’ll feel if I spent all of that money, all of this energy, all of this time, and lost? I will never, ever forgive the people of Connecticut, I will never forgive the people of Florida, and Pennsylvania, and Ohio, but I love them anyway. We’ll see. I think we’re going to do very well.”
Wow. Way to act like a 5-year-old, right? Trump has effectively pointed the finger at voters in several key states, opting to place the burden of his hypothetical defeat on their shoulders. Screw his complicity, right? There’s no way running a xenophobic, racist, and misogynist campaign composed of lies and conspiracy theorizing could in any way be responsible for his failure to beat “Crooked Hillary” in November.
Of course, this could just be Trump being Trump. After all, coherence isn’t something his campaign is known for. But at the same time, one can’t help but wonder if his “I’ll never forgive you” speech is due, in part, to the negative press his campaign has received finally showing in the polls.
But even though Trump is trailing badly in the polls, there are truthers out there who testify that the numbers are lies. Perhaps that’s what has been keeping him going? After all, is Trump’s campaign not verbalized conspiracy theories anyway?
