Figuring Out President Trump

Since he dipped his toe into the treacherous political waters in 2015, much has been written about President Trump’s modus operandi. As a neophyte politician, is he a charlatan, a fool, or one cagey SOB? Most points of view are generally dependent on the politics of the given prognosticator. Leftist Democrats believe that he has normalized bigotry and xenophobia in this country and has likely paved the way for race relations to deteriorate rather than progressing forward. Some of them believe that he is either a clueless incompetent beyond his depth or an evil genius.

Yet Trump’s opponents – in particular those in the legacy media – continue to hang on every his every word and are constantly being trolled by his public statements and especially his daily tweets on Twitter. It is really quite amazing to watch, is it not? Given that the likes of CNN, MSNBC, the NY Times, and Washington Post have destroyed their credibility with the American people due to fake news reporting, the only thing keeping them afloat in terms of viewership/readership is their 24×7 reporting on everything Trump!

All of Trump’s naysayers are from the political establishment along with their hangers-on in media, academia and Hollywood. They largely live in Blue states and never come into contact with Trump supporters in Red states; they inhabit the equivalent of a Leftist Cocoon into which reality and facts never seem to penetrate. Emotions motivate them, and they inherently value style over substance. How many times have we seen Democrats or media figures complain about the president’s supposed “unpresidential behavior” over the past couple of years? They are all so absolutely CERTAIN that there is only one correct way in which a sitting president must comport himself, and President Trump does not meet their expectations. That’s why they love their tin god Obama who was and is nothing but style and a light-weight with nothing of substance behind him. Fortunately, his legacy is blowing away like dust in the wind.

How best to explain President Trump, especially to those afflicted with seemingly incurable mass psychosis that is called Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS)? Opinions vary, even among those of us on the Right. What follows are my personal opinions. First of all, unlike the views of those afflicted with TDS, my opinion is that our president is far smarter than his political adversaries! What do I mean? Allow me to explain with a personal anecdote.

I once had a French-speaking boss who was born in Quebec, Canada. A Vietnam vet, he sustained a gunshot wound behind an ear that affected his hearing. A PhD, he cultivated a belief based on his personal circumstances about which everyone in his immediate circle knew. He feigned difficulty in understanding English and coupled that pretension with impaired hearing, which he worked to his advantage in meetings. His “condition” was so well-known and cleverly developed that his reputation for these maladies preceded him. But here’s the deal: he could hear perfectly and could communicate verbally and in writing in English with the best of English speakers. His act resulted in people letting their guard down around him and disclosing things they otherwise wouldn’t.

Trump has his own shtick in this regard – not hard of hearing or feigning language difficulty – but rather a brusque and direct nature that greatly differs from the demeanor of a US president expected by the political class. In short, he is frequently viewed to be “not very presidential” by the Left and downright “dumb,” and the Democrats, legacy media, and NeverTrump Republicans can’t deal with that except to continually disparage him. It is impossible for them to ignore his direct public statements and tweets, and they react reflexively (and predictably) each and every time. They just can’t help themselves because they despise him so much – and this makes them completely susceptible to Trump’s misdirection.

President Trump has long been a disciple of Sun Tzu, the great Chinese general and philosopher who authored the seminal reference, “The Art of War.” President Trump wrote his own book, “The Art of Business,” patterned after Sun Tzu’s military strategies. I believe that he is also applying those same strategies to the modern political realm as he deals with his political opponents on a daily basis.

Let’s look at how Trump applies 10 of Sun Tzu’s principles in light of what we’ve learned about our president through close observation since 2015.

Principle #1 – Planning: Trump views his struggle as a war with the entrenched Deep State and their allies. He spent years studying the enemy camp and learning their weaknesses before developing his plan for the presidency. What are the elements of his plan? To use other Sun Tzu principles to let his enemies defeat themselves, including use of advantages, alliances, deception, use of spies, exploitation of strengths and weaknesses, energy, communication, and winning whole.

Principle #2 – Character: Sun is big on the virtues of wisdom, sincerity, benevolence, courage, and strictness in commanders. There is plenty of evidence of those in Trump! I like his benevolent side in particular, as well as his courage in his willingness to take it to the the Democrats and the media. A commander uses those virtues to properly command those around him. Trump is excellent in delegating authority to his sub-commanders (cabinet officers and various functionaries and spokesmen).

Principle #3 – Using advantages: Sun says that to become “thoroughly acquainted” with anything, and thus able to use the advantage of that knowledge, takes time, especially to get thoroughly acquainted with oneself. Without question, our president is comfortable in his own skin, as is readily seen in all of his public appearances, especially his campaign rallies around the country. He is a man of the people, and the people love him for it. And he’s spent decades studying “the enemy” and their weaknesses (e.g., hubris, false omniscience, narcissism, greed, envy, and personal foibles and sins). It’s a key advantage he has over the Democrats and media who underestimate him at every turn.

Principle #4 – Alliances: Sun says that no one has ever achieved anything of note without having alliances, and that knowing how to win is the first step while building alliances to get it done is the second step. With whom does Trump have strong alliances? I would argue that Trump has allied himself with a number of flag and general officers in the active duty and retired military who are intent on purging the corruption that is rampant in the Deep State, as well as his cabinet members, the Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives, and others. All are working to Make America Great Again!

Principle #5 – Deception: Sun says that “all warfare is based on deception.” A corollary is the use of misdirection to deceive and confuse the enemy. And we all know that Trump is a master at using misdirection to keep Democrats and the legacy media off-balance! His opposition hasn’t stopped him from setting a record for appointments to the federal judiciary, or the passage of tax cuts, or the freeing up of the oil and gas industry, or the ending of the Obamacare individual mandate, or getting NATO allies to pay more, or working to reset trade practices with China, etc. That’s because the opposition is fixated on Trump’s misdirecting public statements and tweets – on his style versus his substance (policies and directives). I would argue that the real key to understanding Trump’s ongoing political strategy and modus operandi is his use of this most important Sun principle – Deception!

Principle #6 – Use of spies: Sun says that “to fight and win all battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellent consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.” Employing spycraft to understand the enemy’s plans and motivations is key to winning. A couple of names come to mind: ADM Rogers (the former head of NSA, the world’s elite communications monitoring org who made that important trip to Trump Tower in mid-November 2016). Two others: Mike Pompeo and Gina Haspel (reorganizing and repurposing the CIA, with Pompeo now leading Trump’s foreign policy team as Secretary of State). It would appear that leakers are also being outed as time goes by in the Senate, House, National Security Council, and State Department. That’s spycraft!

Principle #7 – Strengths and weaknesses: Sun said that good fighters “first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat” and then wait for an opportunity to defeat the enemy – by waiting for that opportunity as provided by the enemy himself. President Trump plays rope-a-dope with the best of them. He gives off an air of weakness by not actively using the strength of his office to, for example, overtly direct Deep State firings, prosecutions, etc., of the cabal. He is patient in letting his enemies hang themselves. Which is exactly what the likes of Clapper, Comey, Brennan, McCabe, Strozk, Yates, and others are doing almost daily with their public railings about Trump’s supposed “treason,” abuse of power, Ukrainia quid pro quo, etc. Meanwhile, the indisputable evidence of their own perfidy continues to be exposed. He is letting them defeat themselves in the court of public opinion in preparation for the prosecutions to come – while building majority support among normal Americans for the indictments to come.

Principle #8 – Energy: Sun says that if you don’t know what to defend or what to attack, you will squander your energy. Our president has boundless energy and is constantly working on his MAGA agenda on but 4-5 hours of sleep per night. Amazing! He is putting his energy into advancing his agenda and using surrogates to hold his political opposition and the media at bay. Watch for more campaign rallies like Minneapolis and Dallas to energize his base (including Democrats!) going into 2020, too.

Principle #9 – Communications: Sun says that appropriate communication is the golden key to winning. Who could possibly argue that Trump is the greatest communicator in the Oval Office since Reagan (and I would argue even better!)? His twitter campaign is brilliant, as he is able to communicate instantaneously with his base whenever he chooses to do so. The Democrats and legacy media still haven’t figured it out yet; they always respond to everything he says. I pray they never will!

Principle #10 – Winning whole: Sun says that “the general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations beforehand. Thus, do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to defeat.” Now we can’t possibly know all of the calculations that Trump has made along the way, or the plans that are presently being executed on multiple fronts, but we can judge the results by his many successes since 20 January 2017. How many substantive losses has he truly sustained? The Obamacare repeal failed, but that was on the Senate (McCain in particular), not Trump. And I don’t believe he’s given up on that, so call that one a rain-check for now. Same with the Wall – which has been obstructed by the Uniparty, too. He used a declaration of national emergency on the border to fund the Wall out of national security spending in order to defeat the Democrats’ obstruction. It is being built, slowly but surely. And the economy is going gang-busters. Looks to me like President Trump owns that last Sun Tzu principle in spades: winning whole!

Conclusion: President Trump’s modus operandi involves adaptation of Sun Tzu’s 10 principles to the political battlespace of 21st century America. He is probably the greatest adherent to the tenets in Sun’s “The Art of War” in the modern era, and insights into his thinking can be elucidated by carefully observing his very successful actions on our collective behalf on a daily basis. The latest example was his appearance at the Astros-Nationals World Series Game last night. When he was shown on the big screen, the Deep State bureaucrats in attendance (DC is loaded with them!) booed him. Imagine what the rest of the normal country thought when the watched that unpatriotic spectacle? The Master Troller was at work again exposing that DC isn’t American at all – quite the opposite! The Left/Democrats, legacy media, and indeed virtually the entire political class remain clueless – which is great for the rest of us!

The end.

SAD! Media Worried About Islamaphobia in Baghdadi Death, and Suggests it Was Part of a Russian Conspiracy

he media only has one position, and that is opposed to Trump no matter what, so after the raid that successfully killed Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi the Left must figure out how to be upset about the death of the world’s #1 terror leader because Trump supported it. Chuck Todd is worried that America may have been islamaphobic over the handling of Baghdadi, and floats a conspiracy that Baghdadi’s death was probably good for Russia (and therefore bad for America) and the Washington Post writes a glowing obituary headline for the terror leader because they don’t want Trump to look good.

SJW Wreaks so Much Woke Havoc in the Classroom, Cornell Ejects Her from the Science Program. Now Everyone Can Learn Again

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x350 SJW Wreaks so Much Woke Havoc in the Classroom, Cornell Ejects Her from the Science Program. Now Everyone Can Learn Again Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

Reportedly, a student at Cornell University social-justiced their way right out of school.

Or, at least, out of a school program.

They were such an annoyance, the college gave them the boot — from the Alliance for Science fellowship.

Julia Feliz — who prefers the pronouns “they” and “them” — would (and remember, all of this is alleged) constantly relate every cotton-picking thing in every cotton-picking discussion in every cotton-picking class to social justice issues.

In fact, I think I just transgressed, with “cotton-picking.”

This took time time away from everybody actually learning stuff.

Apparently, she isn’t white, and now she’s calling the school “racist,” even though complaints emanated from non-white students as well.

According to Cornell, the science program aims to address “the ways in which individuals and groups define mathematical knowledge so as to see ‘Western’ mathematics as the only legitimate expression of mathematical identity and intelligence. This definition of legitimacy is then used to disenfranchise people and communities of color. This erases the historical contributions of people and communities of color.”

Oh, sorry — that’s from the Seattle public school system’s Math Ethnic Studies program (here).

Let’s see…Cornell…Cornell…ah — here it is:

To “equip and empower emerging international leaders who are committed to advocating for science-based communications and access to scientific innovation in their home countries.”

But Julia, it seems, had some additional objectives.

As reported by The College Fix, she “accused a visiting professor from Iowa State of using ‘racist and sexist terminology’ and of ‘[speaking] loudly and walk[ing] towards them to intimidate them’ after they asked a question.”

As for white racism, 27 of the 31 students let into the program this semester weren’t Caucasian.

And here’s what the school had to say about Julia’s — aka “Mx. Feliz’s” — charges and trajectory, served up in a statement by Senior Direct of Media Relations and News John Carberry:

It is accurate that Mx. Feliz was asked to leave the 2019 Fellows program. This decision was not taken lightly. This was made after Mx. Feliz engaged in behavior that caused numerous and repeated complaints from other fellows over many weeks. It became clear that the educational experience of other fellows was being compromised due to ongoing interruptions of classroom lectures and discussions by Mx. Feliz. Cornell staff made many attempts to support and work with Mx. Feliz, including referrals to appropriate university offices to explore Mx. Feliz’s allegations of discrimination in the program; however, Mx. Feliz chose not to take advantage of independent university support programs, instead raising Mx. Feliz’s concerns within the classroom, leading to additional complaints from other fellows. Program leadership ultimately determined with sincere regret that Mx. Feliz was not benefitting from the program and that Mx. Feliz’s continued presence was depriving other fellows of their opportunity to benefit from the program.

We’re living in strange times. And given all the cultivation of social justice mania — including within the educational system — it’s no wonder someone like Julia could manage such a footshot.

We’re probably headed for more of the same, unless and until schools turn back to teaching the science of not being goofy.

As covered earlier by RedState’s cool Elizabeth Vaughn, The Washington Post noted the passing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by calling him an “austere religious scholar.”

That was after the initial label of the “Islamic State’s terrorist-in-chief” was lamented by communications manager Kristine Coratti Kelly:

Nice save.

The internet wasn’t impressed, and Twitterers rose to the occasion with their own sarcastic tributes to the tune of the #5 hashtag: #WaPoDeathNotices.

Some of the submissions are pretty hilarious.

Here’s one for the austere cannibal, Jeffrey:

And one for all you Wicked fans:

And of course:

More:

And there was this:

WaPo eventually settled on the description, “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State.”

If you’re wondering, he went to Paradise by detonating his suicide vest.

He took three of his children with him.

As for the hashtag, I’m sure you have your own contributions.

And I look forward to reading them in the Comments section.

Rand Paul Asks a Great Question: Why isn’t the Media Calling Out AOC and Uncle Bernie for Championing the Systems of MAO and Stalin?

Westlake Legal Group rand-paul-AP-620x413 Rand Paul Asks a Great Question: Why isn’t the Media Calling Out AOC and Uncle Bernie for Championing the Systems of MAO and Stalin? Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., speaks during an event at the University of Chicago’s Ida Noyes Hall in Chicago on Tuesday, April 22, 2014. (AP Photo/Andrew A. Nelles)

 

 

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul bounced onto C-SPAN’s After Words Sunday to make a sustantial point.

During a really, really long interview by guest host and Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (here and here), Rand brought up the serious danger of ideas being promoted by Uncle Bernie Sanders and everyone’s favorite congressional freshman fartfighter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Matt questioned the senator about some politicians “champion[ing]” country-turned-chaos Venezuela, and here’s what he had to say:

“Venezuela is just such a disaster. I mean, people literally eating their pets. We tell the story of a young lady who was a teenage girl, and she has a gang, but her gang is to defend the turf of trash. So, there’s certain garbage receptacles and she keeps people out of them because those are her garbage receptacles to look for food. How sad. People killing rats in the street to try to eat them, pigeons, and it just, it really is a sad thing.”

I’m sure there are lots of bad stories. As for calamity, here’s a peek into a peak:

Thanks To Left-Loved Socialism, Venezuela Sees Children Selling Sex & Straight Men Selling Gay Sex.”

And yet, we still had this in August:

A Group Of Chicago Teachers Union Members Travels To Venezuela & Reports The Shocking Findings: It’s Fantastic!

More from Rand:

“Kind of going back to the world economy thing, we have to understand why the world economy got better, and we have to understand why Venezuela’s deteriorating into, you know, chaos – and that’s, I think, part of what the book is doing – it’s part of also the debate we should be having up here, and we don’t seem to have it in Congress, is that we don’t develop, we aren’t really talking about which economic system is better.”

I’ll go further than that: It seems to me we don’t even have people understanding what the economic systems are.

How many people touting socialism know it’s a monopolistic system in which they can’t own their own business?

And that capitalism simply means a free-economy setup in which they can?

Whatever people do or don’t realize, Rand’s surprised the media doesn’t care:

“And nobody in the media seems to care that what AOC is supporting or what Bernie is supporting is Stalin and Mao and Pol Pot, and all these terrible ideas, and they get away with it because they aren’t challenged.”

It’s a good question: Why isn’t more being said about the oppressive countries where such policies have been put into place.

As for leaders, Stalin and MAO are good ones; there’s also those dapper dudes in suits known as Nazis. Or, National Socialists.

As noted by The Daily Wire, Rand didn’t have the most receptive audience on October 11th when he tried to preach the anti-socialism gospel to The View. Guest host Ana Navarro wasn’t into it:

NAVARRO: Let me ask you this because I live in Miami, there’s tens of thousands of Venezuelan exiles living there. You talk a lot about Venezuela in your new book. I get a lot of political ads from the Republican Party – Donald Trump has tweeted this, many have tweeted this – “If you vote for Democrats, they will turn the United States into Venezuela.” Do you think that’s a fair statement to make?

PAUL: Well, if you vote for a socialist, you might get socialism.

NAVARRO: Come on. Don’t do that. Maduro is not a socialist; he’s a corrupt, murderous thug who is starving his people.

PAUL: That’s not true.

NAVARRO: That’s not true? Maduro’s not a thug and a murderer who’s starving his people?

PAUL: Let’s have a conversation here. Chavez was a socialist, and socialism was the economic system Venezuela –

NAVARRO: And they stole. [It’s a] kleptocracy. It’s not socialism.

PAUL: But here’s the question … they voted for socialism.

Venezuelan expat told TDW Ana needs to get right with it:

“Ana Navarro is wrong to say Maduro isn’t socialist. Nicolás Maduro and his predecessor, Hugo Chavez, nationalized thousands of companies and greatly expanded welfare programs and government employment. It was as a result of these socialist policies that our economy was destroyed and that today 9 out of every 10 Venezuelans live in poverty and more than four million Venezuelans like myself have been forced to leave our homeland. Corrupt and evil people govern many countries around the world, but these countries don’t see the terrible humanitarian crises that socialist countries like Venezuela and Cuba experience.”

There appears to be a great deal of ignorance of what socialism means, and so people are jonesin’ for it like the pro-alien peeps in a 1962 Twilight Zone episode.

They may believe socialism’s goal is “To Serve Man,” but in reality, we’re headed for indigestion: “It’s a cook book.”

And if we’re not careful, it’ll be Bon Crappétit.

BREAKING: Katie Hill to Resign by Week’s End

Following RedState’s series of articles on Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA), Politico is reporting that the freshman from Agua Dulce, CA is resigning.

As RedState reported earlier today, DCCC sources commented off the record early Sunday that the DCCC was looking for a replacement for Hill, and once one was found that Hill would resign. Within the district, the consensus is that the replacement candidate will be Asm. Christy Smith, who just completed her first term representing the area and campaigned with Hill.

In addition, a planned fundraiser featuring Hill scheduled for Nov. 8 was canceled over the weekend.

According to Politico, Hill will resign by the end of the week.

The New Bond Villain is Gonna Do Some Damage, but Great News: He’s Eco-Friendly

Are you ready for the next James Bond movie? I am.

And the new villain is gonna be, reportedly, that most dastardly thing of all: eco-friendly.

The Sun reports:

As the plot is shrouded in secrecy, it is not clear what the villain is plotting to do or how 007 confronts him.

But:

[Bond’s] unnamed nemesis – nicknamed Greenfinger by insiders – has a lair powered by an algae farm and with a Zen garden.

Perhaps he’ll do eco things like suspend himself from a bridge just before a national debate, and cost the city millions of dollars.

Aw, dang it:

For now, mum’s the word. Except the eco thing:

Director Cary Joji Fukunaga is so keen to keep the plot under wraps he has reportedly filmed three endings. But an eco-friendly villain would be a Bond first. One theory is that algae blooms can produce deadly toxins.

One source told The Sun Bond’s Enemy #1 will be played by Rami Malek, who won an Oscar for Bohemian Rhapsody. And he’s into slime:

[A] source said: “The baddie’s lair apparently has a giant algae farm.

“Something like that would look very sinister and green so will look great on the screen.”

“Quite how it will impact Bond only the scriptwriters can know but fans will be keen to find out.”

As reported by The Daily Wire, Rami explained to The Mirror he was excited to be in the film, but he demanded his Middle Eastern character not be an Islamic terrorist:

“It’s a great character and I’m very excited,” Malek told The Mirror earlier this year. “But that was one thing that I discussed with [director] Cary Fukunaga. I said, ‘We cannot identify him with any act of terrorism reflecting an ideology or a religion. That’s not ­something I would entertain, so if that is why I am your choice then you can count me out’. But that was clearly not his vision. So he’s a very different kind of terrorist.”

Maybe he can be the kind of environmental terrorist who shuts down 20+ intersections or petrifies children to the point of them pledging not to reproduce.

Rami said he’s Egyptian, and he wants only positive representations of his people:

“I am Egyptian. I grew up listening to Egyptian music. I loved Omar Sharif,” Malek said. “These are my people. I feel so gorgeously tied to the culture and the human beings that exist there.”

Unfortunately — and, perhaps, yet unbeknownst to the actor — the fact that he’s the villain will mean he’s a mass murderer.

And murdering people for reasons other than religion doesn’t make it any better.

CNBC Hack John Harwood Is Really, Really Upset That Al-Baghdadi Was Killed

Westlake Legal Group facepalm-bear-620x325 CNBC Hack John Harwood Is Really, Really Upset That Al-Baghdadi Was Killed Uncategorized RNC media bias joke john harwood hack Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump CNBC Al-Baghdadi

The tweets you are about to see are an absolute clown show. You’d think a guy who styles himself as an unbiased journalist would try to avoid being so obvious about it, but nah, it’s John Harwood.

You may remember him from the 2016 primaries, where the RNC thought it’d be a great idea to give Harwood a moderator spot in a debate. He made an absolute fool of himself with his bias. That decision by the establishment of the party pretty much encapsulated Trump’s eventual win.

After ISIS terrorist leader Al-Baghdadi was killed last night and the official word was given this morning, Harwood decided it’d be a great idea to get on Twitter and make a fool of himself.

Of course he didn’t give Pelosi advance warning. House Democrats are political actors who’ve shown a propensity to leak like a sieve. Would anyone put it past Adam Schiff to leak the raid and blow it up? I wouldn’t. Further, did Obama give Republicans a briefing prior to the Bin Laden raid? Nope, and not a single media member or Democrat found that problematic.

That’s because without Russia, this raid doesn’t happen. They control the airspace in Northern Syria. Apparently, there was cooperation between multiple nations here, including some that make not necessarily be “good guys.” You don’t always get to pick your allies. We got the mission done and that’s what matters.

Harwood kept going though, trying to downplay the significance of Al-Baghdadi’s death.

Actually, most Americans do know who he is, at least in relation to ISIS having a specific leader that’s been on the run for years. He’s made news many, many times. Harwood’s second comment is just asinine. Al Qaeda was essentially obliterated and called defeated by the time we finally got Bin Laden. It’s still important to get these guys.

Then there was this.

Yes, the leader of ISIS, a group we’ve been fighting for 7 years, is like an ant compared to Bin Laden. Makes sense. In reality, both were extremely important kills to get. ISIS has been at the forefront of the American psyche for a long time. Baghdadi being blown up is a win for everyone and Americans know it.

Instead of just being able to admit this was a good thing, hacks like Harwood can’t turn it off. This guy should never be taken seriously by any Republicans ever again. If he sniffs moderating another debate, the RNC should be dissolved.

Bill Maher Tells Bill and Hillary to Stay Far Away from the 2020 Convention: ‘We Can’t be Associating Them with the Democratic Party’

Could Hillary Clinton make a comeback?

Personally, I think she has a better chance than does Elizabeth Warren — on the debate stage, Donald “The Dragon” Trump will engulf her in his fiery expulsion, and that’ll be that.

But Hillary’s got some hot breath, too.

And some people still wish she’d won last go ’round.

Unfortunately for all people on earth, she believes she did. And she keeps saying things to that effect (here).

Perhaps that’s why Bill Maher wants her to shut up, and keep on shutting up.

On his Real Time show Friday night, Maher said it’d be best if Bill and Hillary go the way of the dodo bird and stay out of next summer’s 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milkwaukee.

Personally, I’d bet Hillary’s already snagged her ticket on Expedia.

And maybe also one for 2021’s inauguration.

A one-way.

But here’s what Bill had to say:

“It seems like every few months, Hillary Clinton bubbles up again. And people are like, ‘Oh, she’s thinking about running.’ Or she says something crazy.”

Ditto on that second part — like here, here, and here.

“The Clintons — they’ve got to go away. I’m saying this a year out. They can’t be at the convention. Maybe on the video, waving or something, but I’m serious.”

That comment surely chapped Hillary’s hide — she’ll let go of the spotlight when it’s pried from her Kung Fu grip (here).

Now here’s something interesting: Bill referenced Independent Michigan Rep. Justin Amash’s labeling of Ms. Bill Clinton as a “Donald Trump asset” after the former First Lady’s attack of Tulsi Gabbard as a Russian one (see here).

The host thinks Justin was right on the money, honey:

“She is! And Bill is damaged goods. And I just think they’ve got to go away. We can’t be associating them with the Democratic Party.”

Wow. Who ever thought those words would be spoken by a liberal on television?

Real Time guest Donny Deutsch chimed in with something exceedingly goofy: Maybe Bill Clinton’s public status will improve as time goes by, as did George W’s (Pssst — Donny, W.’s status was only low to people across the aisle; and some of those same people have decried Clinton in light of the #MeToo revolution).

Maher explained that Mr. Clinton’s Q is moving in the opposite direction:

“But [Clinton’s] got worse! We forgave him, and then we unforgave him!”

Personally, I think Hillary should give it a go. But she faces a terrible risk: She’s spent the last three years claiming she was robbed; if she loses again, she’ll look even more like this, every time she brings it up:
