Trump Loses Like Clockwork
Earlier today (Korean Time), I noted that in the wake of Luther Strange’s loss to Roy Moore in Alabama’s U.S. Senate primary runoff, Donald Trump would immediately begin dissociating himself from the fellow Mitch McConnell lackey he campaigned for. I even suggested one might start a pool to guess what time he would start his Twitter revisionism.
Well, it’s begun. Already, The Washington Examiner reports that the Orange McConnell has been caught deleting several recent tweets endorsing Strange, including this particularly amusing one:
Luther Strange has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement. Finish the job — vote today for “Big Luther.”
That explains everything. Trump’s little boy bluster needs to believe that he can make things great merely by plastering his name on them. When it doesn’t happen — has it ever happened? — he needs to make excuses, find scapegoats, and of course hide the evidence that he was ever really involved at all.
“Luther Strange? That was McConnell’s guy, right? Loser!”
Even now, I’ve heard that the true Trumpbots at Breitbart and other cult hubs have predictably begun spinning Trump’s egged face as part of his brilliant strategy to nail the establishment — all in a day’s swamp-draining for the master of 892-dimensional chess.
