Hillary Clinton agrees to debate schedule, Donald Trump breaks out in hives
The latest news is that Hillary Clinton has agreed to the presidential debate schedule for the fall. As of now, Donald Trump has not. Mrs. Clinton, being the alpha that she is, is challenging Trump to stop being a weenie and get in the ring with her. This is a challenge which I'm sure is making him flail his little hands about.
From tax returns to debates, Trump is trying to upend the accepted conventions of US presidential politics. Having lived a life of privilege, he thinks he doesn't have to do the things every presidential candidate has done for the entirety of the Republic. He honestly thinks that the gameplan which won him the Republican nomination would work for the general election, assuming that the general electorate was as gullible and uneducated as his GOP base.
He is quickly finding out that not to be the case. The latest NBC/Survey Monkey poll has Sec. Clinton up 51% to 41%. Other polls have shown Trump pulling in support in the high 30s. This is not just a dumpster fire; this is a tsunami which is about to wash away the GOP.
Trump has built up a cult around himself as being the ultimate alpha. It's a sham. The fact that he can be goaded so easily by criticism is evidence that he is far from a self-confident titan of industry, but a scared, insecure little boy with little boy hands who is washed in paranoia.
The question is which will hurt his ego more: skipping the debates, like brave Sir Robin, or going to at least the first debate and getting walloped by "Crooked Hillary"? For an alpha male, Trump evinces many qualities which would otherwise have his cultists mocking him.
The news for this election continues to be good. The only thing which will suffice is to humiliate Trump and his party at the polls this November.
