Today is the first day of Hillary Clinton’s Democratic National Convention, and it was painfully clear how nervous it was making Donald Trump last night. On the eve of the DNC, Trump spent a few hours unleashing a ridiculous, ranting tweetstorm that slammed everyone from the former Secretary of State to the DNC to the media. And really, Trump has every reason to be worried.
Trump’s own Republican National Convention, which dominated most of last week, was an absolute embarrassment and disaster not only to the GOP, but to Trump himself. Trump’s RNC was overrun with a plagiarism scandal thanks to his wife, a humiliating lack of endorsement from Senator Ted Cruz who urged America to “vote with your conscience” and the fact that the RNC displayed a white supremacist’s tweet for all to see when Trump accepted the nomination. You can’t make that stuff up.
On top of all that, Bernie Sanders ripped Trump apart on Twitter during his acceptance speech, and Clinton announced her VP pick of Tim Kaine, which drew far more applause than Trump’s running mate Mike Pence. As Clinton kicks off her convention, it’s clear that Trump is in trouble, and he knows it. And how else does Trump vent when he’s upset about something? On Twitter.
Trump went off on several subjects, the first of them being Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who just resigned as DNC chairwoman due to leaked DNC emails that showed officials were planning to undercut Sanders’ presidential run.
Trump also made sure to go after Sanders, obviously because he’s infuriated that Bernie criticized him during the RNC and is still choosing to support Clinton even through the revealed DNC emails. Trump had been trying to win Bernie over for weeks and even claimed that Bernie’s voters would turn to team Trump, yet the Vermont senator continued to stand behind Clinton and urge his voters to do the same so that Trump could be defeated.
And once Trump got started, there was no stopping him. He even brought the ‘biased media’ into the mix, claiming that most of the networks (aside from Fox News) were against him.
Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager, also spent some time tweeting yesterday. He suggested that “Hillary Clinton should follow Wasserman Schultz’s lead and drop out.”
The Trump campaign is clearly nervous, and they really should be. Trump has spent so much time insulting minorities and displaying how little he knows about actual policy that he hardly seems real competition for Clinton. Most of us know that with all of her experience, qualifications and history, Clinton would wipe the debate floor with Trump. All Trump has are his insults and lies, and America is waking up to what a fraud he is.
We expect that the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this week is going to be far more respectful, optimistic, honest and compassionate than what we saw at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. And we’re sure it’s going to drive Trump crazy!
