A clip from the upcoming Megyn Kelly Fox special with Donald Trump showed the Republican frontrunner trying to reinvent himself as Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Trump said, “I mean, I view myself as a person that, like everybody else, is fighting for survival. I, that’s all I view myself as. And I really view myself now as somewhat of a messenger… You know, this is, um … This is a massive thing that’s going on. These are millions and millions of people that have been disenfranchised from this country.”
All that was missing from Trump’s comments was a call for a political revolution. Donald Trump is such a political parasite that he is trying to steal the identity of Sen. Bernie Sanders. The truth about Trump is that he has never had to fight for anything. Trump started out, not with a $1 million loan, but $40 million when he became president of his father’s real estate company. That’s right. Trump didn’t even have to start his own business. His successful business was handed to him by his father.
One couldn’t create a person who is more different from Sen. Bernie Sanders if they tried, but here is Trump trying to pull the wool over the eyes of voters are across the United States of America. The logic behind Trump’s ploy is simple. He believes that if he can capture the supporters of Sanders and combine them with his Republican supporters, he’ll beat Hillary Clinton.
The problem is that Sanders supporters will never vote for Donald Trump. When a candidate is as unpopular as Trump is, they need to try to con as many people as possible to win. Megyn Kelly is helping Trump remake himself as Bernie Sanders.
People aren’t stupid. The Fox/Trump ploy won’t work, and if anything their stunt will push Sanders supporters more towards voting for Hillary Clinton in November.
Donald Trump is so desperate that he is trying fool voters into believing that he is Bernie Sanders.
