Is Donald Trump Covering for Hillary Clinton’s Scandals?

By Ray Johnson, August 8, 2015 at 1:41 pm


Donald Trump is an early Christmas present for the Democratic Party

You might be wondering why a history blogger is venturing into the crazy world of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and the reality show of the 2016 presidential race.  Well to be more specific, I am actually a Chicago history blogger.  Anyone who has studied the history of Chicago has also been a student of the ruthless, cutthroat, immoral and many times corrupt environment of Chicago politics which is a heck of a lesson in politics as a whole.

In the interest of full disclosure I do not truly identify with either the Republican or Democratic Party although my voting has leaned very strongly to the Republican.  I am truly, as many Americans are now, interested more in who is best for the country and not necessarily what party they belong to.  I also have functioned as an election judge for the past 5 years and am registered as a republican judge but only because you are not allowed to act as an independent judge or any other party judge for that matter.

So why do I have a strong suspicion that Donald Trump is secretly working for the Democratic Party?

Reason One:  Distraction

If you recall, Hillary Clinton was under serious negative pressure from the media.  She was under scrutiny for a myriad of issues from Benghazi, her private email server, the Clinton Foundation and foreign government donations, and questions about her fundraising to name a few.

Trump has been a great distraction for Hillary

Then along comes Trump.  Cascading down the escalator on June 16, 2015 to announce that he is running for the presidency as a republican, and oh yeah to mention how Mexico is sending drug dealers and rapists across the border!

At that moment in time both the conventional media and social media said, “Hillary who?”

Let’s face it. Trump, while supposedly leading in the polls, is a train wreck.  You don’t really want to stare but you just can’t look away.  While he does say out loud what many people are thinking he says it in a way to create controversy and web site views and ultimately it takes a huge amount of pressure and scrutiny off of Hillary.

In addition he has made a concerted effort to alienate the Hispanic as well as the female population through insensitive although more than likely well planned inflammatory comments and has done that as a republican. (Not surprisingly the two market segments that republicans have been trying to win over

Reason Two:  The Possible Accidental Candidate

I am not a big believer in polls but they do tend to influence the decisions of the voters and according to many of them Trump, at least before the first republican primary debate, was the leading republican candidate.  Many people I have spoken with who are voters both democratic and republican are becoming more and more convinced that while he is a leader in the polls he is not taking his run seriously and do not see him as a serious candidate.  What that means is that if the RNC by some miracle or tragedy gives Trump “the nod” then Hillary will almost certainly beat Trump in the general election.

Reason Three:  Divide and Conquer

Let’s say that Trump doesn’t receive the republican nomination.  He has already said during the first debate that he cannot guarantee that he will not run as an independent.  He was the only candidate of the ten that wouldn’t make that guarantee.  I appreciate his honesty but what does that mean?

What it means is that the republicans that do believe in Donald Trump for president will pull votes away from the republican nominee thereby splitting the votes and also virtually guarantee a Hillary Clinton victory.  (That applies to any of the republican hopefuls who could run as independents in the general election and not only Donald Trump)

Conclusion: Americans are Smarter than the Politicians Think

If Donald Trump is not a political ploy or plant then Hillary must just be the luckiest candidate in recent history and can consider this an early Christmas present.   If Donald gets the nomination, Hillary is in.  If Donald doesn’t get the nomination and runs as an independent then Hillary is in.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.  I have faith in the voters and our system.  I believe that Americans are much smarter than the politicians give us credit for.  Don’t fall for the political games that Chicagoans and those that follow Chicago politics are so familiar with.

In 2016 vote for who you truly believe will help our country and put the interests of the American people over their own personal interests and economic gains.  This applies to all voters whether you consider yourself a republican, democrat, independent or any other party affiliation.  And finally, make sure that you actually vote.  One other trick that politicians use to gain or remain in power is the power of apathy.

  1. I don’t think Trump and Clinton like each other, they have been bashing each other all week. Unlikely they are colluding in any way , here is one such example:

    Hillary Clinton Called Trump a RACIST, Trump wrote this back.

    “Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration. I said “Mexico is sending”— I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.

    She is desperate, she is sad, and she is obviously very nervous when she has to revert to issues that have already been settled given the absolute accuracy of my statement. She speaks about “my tone” and that’s the problem with our country’s leaders. They are more worried about tone than results! It’s not about being nice— it’s about being competent.

    Hillary should spend more time producing her illegally hidden emails and less time trying to obfuscate a statement by me that is totally clear and obviously very much accepted by the public as true. I am honored, however, that she is attacking me, instead of Jeb Bush. Obviously she knows that JEB is no longer her real competition. The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump.”

    I think Bill Clinton tried to play on Trumps ego and suggested he run thinking his big mouth would hurt the GOP, it backfired on Bill Clinton and I do’t think they expected this kind of result.

    Trump recently said Hillary Clinton was “the worst secretary of state in the history of our nation.”

    No way is Trump bashing Clinton helping her, he has caused her a lot of damage.

    • Good points, but it is possible that it is all said as a smokescreen. It’s true that Trump has been trashing her, but that’s all talk and his actions as stated in this article show differently.

      We know the Clintons and Trump are friendly enough to talk regularly, be invited and attend Trump’s wedding, and be Trump’s favorite president. They are too close.

      Also, Trump’s policies (outside of illegal immigration) more closely represent the liberal Communist playbook. Just listen to what he has been saying about not defunding Planned Parenthood. He has been for partial birth abortion and an assault weapons ban. He is definitely NOT a Conservative. How much have you heard him talk about the Constitution? Does he know enough about the Constitution to defend it as President? With this PROVEN record of flipflopping on issues, how can Americans trust him in the White House?

      If there are Conservatives that are supporting Trump, they need to wake up and examine Trump’s record before blindly throwing their support behind him just because he talks a good game.

      There is only one candidate in this race who is actually standing up to the Washington Cartel on a daily basis in Washington DC and that is Ted Cruz. He is doing what we as Conservatives have asked for so long and now we are not getting fully behind Cruz? This is absurd and wrong.

      Ted Cruz is the only candidate who does what he says he is going to do and we need to support him for President.

    • One more point to note after Fox News and Trump have made up is that a lot of this looks contrived. Trump helped Fox News get the most viewers watching (24 million) of any non-sporting event ever.

      Trump followers have been for Trump because they are against another establishment candidate being the nominee like Romney, McCain, and Dole. However, what if Trump is the establishment candidate? You don’t give a candidate this much attention unless you want them to be the nominee. Trump and Bush received the most talk time.

      Trump has also been losing consistently to Clinton in the General Election polls.

      If you look at the stage, there were 5 RINOs and 5 Conservatives.
