Like many companies led by Trump beforehand, his campaign is biting the dust in terms of generating profit. Just as his previous endeavors — Trump Taj Mahal in 1991, Trump Plaza Hotel in 1992, Trump Hotels and Casinos Resorts in 2004, and Trump Entertainment Resorts in 2009 — it seems as if his campaign is struggling through financial problems and falling short of expectations in the first quarter of the general election. So, let me be clear, Donald is a terrible businessman. Although he claims to be left and right, most of his companies have fallen flat on their faces. So, lets look at his business flops. From terrible management to struggling markets, here’s where The Donald failed to prove “how great” of a businessman he claims to be.
Corey Lewandowski’s firing was almost predictable. As his campaign manager, Lewandowski has always had a bit of a “Let Trump be Trump” mindset. As political advisors have noticed, Lewandowski shared Trump’s entertainment values. They were two peas in a pod — both loving the attention whoring stunts that Trump’s early campaign surrounded itself with. But, with the public opinion dropping, Lewandowski became more controversial than ever before. Trump has no excuse to keep him anymore. Lewandowski’s negatives overrode his positives, thus causing Trump to axe him for someone better.
Now that evangelical Ted Cruz is out of the Republican race, we have to wonder where all that support will go. With 546 delegates claimed by the Cruz camp and the Republican nomination down to the presumptive and destructive Donald Trump and 1-for-38 John Kasich, the Cruz camp is going to have to go somewhere.
Kasich was literally fourth place in a two person race in terms of delegates, only 17% of the way towards the nomination with more than 233% needed in order to surpass Trump — mathematically impossible. Kasich and Cruz’s pathetic alliance didn’t add up to anything, as expected. John Kasich didn’t do much in this campaign cycle. He made it to the very final two before dropping out, however; which is something when you realize the massive amount of people who failed before him.
Let me wake up the criminal Cruz Crew. We’re talking about a religious, evangelical zealot that puts Mike Huckabee to God’s shame. Ted Cruz is ignorant, a literal unconstitutional conservative hiding behind the constitution itself, a document he’s probably read as many times as he’s read his hypocritical Holy book: zero times. He’s been playing with the minds of voters like a psychopathic freak since day one of his campaign, falsely comparing himself to Ronald Reagan (who wouldn’t be able to classify himself as a Republican in this modern day, strained Five Ring Republican Circus) and repeatedly calling voters that were openly for other candidates to “inform” them that their candidate was dropping out and that they should vote for, you guessed it, Ted Cruz.
I’m a fan of studying Nixon, and I’ve studied him and his administration for years now. I’ve read all of his books, from Six Crises to The Real War to Beyond Peace to Seize the Moment to his own personal memoirs. I’ve read most of war criminal Henry Kissinger’s books. I’ve watched and read the Frost/Nixon interviews. You name the speech, if there’s a video recording of it online I’ve seen it twice. From celebrating his 103rd birthday to having an in-depth analysis of his debate against John F. Kennedy in 1960, I’ve done it.
Cruz himself has admitted that there is absolutely no mathematical path to victory when it comes to this election, and that he is literally hoping to steal the election in a Republican contested convention this summer. He’s desperately trying to pick up as many remaining votes as possible, in an attempt to sway female conservatives and brain-dead, far-right evangelicals who were considering to bail ship and vote for Trump. It’s a thinly veiled cloud of desperation from the Cruz camp, picking a candidate incredibly close to his ideals as a last ditch effort to get attention in the late primary cycle. Let me break it easily for Cruz: it doesn’t matter what he does, it’s far too late.
Barack Obama won a majority of the south, which equals a lot of delegates. Bernie Sanders did not win a single state in the south. You can call these states “conservative states that don’t matter” all you want; they still equal a lot of delegates in the Democratic primaries despite oftentimes going red in the general.
Now, I’m a Bernie Sanders supporter — if that’s not obvious — yet I still get positive contact and correspondence from the Clinton fan-base whenever I post my opinions and thoughts towards the former Secretary of State and First Lady. From what the Internet, with sources such as Reddit, want you to believe is that Clinton supporters are brain dead and ignorant towards the “socialism” part of “Democratic socialism”. From over a years’ worth of commenting on both the Sanders and Clinton campaign, this is not the case.
I will spoil this for you: your third party candidate cannot and will not win in a political bipartisan society dominated by DEMOCRAT and REPUBLICAN. Your write-in of Bernie Sanders will not win against an official DEMOCRATIC nominee with an electoral vote dependent on getting near the White House. A vote for anyone against the Democratic nominee — or an absence of a vote for said Democratic nominee — will lead to four years of Donald J. Trump.
