It’s no secret the Republican establishment is unnerved by Donald Trump and his lead in national and key state polls.
And now, after weeks of assuming his support would be fleeting, there is a debate about how to take aim at Trump — and just who should finance such an effort.
CNN’s Maeve Reston noted that most GOP strategists see risks in having the attacks come from the other candidates or their directly affiliated super PACs. So, she reports, there is conversation about what other group might raise money for anti-Trump TV ads.
“There are a lot of donors out there who see it as much too dangerous, obviously, for the candidates, or their allied super PACs, to go after Trump,” said Reston. “So they’re looking to more establishment PACs to potentially take him down in post-Labor Day ads.”
So, instead of Nazi Week or Traitor Week or Tinfoil Week or FUD Week or Brutus Week, we’re going to get Spam September.
Trump will have nothing to worry about, this will be what wraps up the nomination for him.
Why does he not have to worry?
Look who is going to wage this media war against him — The Republican establishment and their “establishment PACs.” The same gang that couldn’t keep a two car parade straight. Trump will rise in the polls with every such media buy. I’m going to grab the popcorn to see how outrageously stupid these buys will be. Remember, this is a same party whose leadership thinks that the best line of attack against Obama is to denounce his “anti-Semitism.”
Let me put it to you this way: Would John Dillinger be breaking even one bead of sweat if he knew the Keystone Cops were after him?
