According to a new CNN/ORC poll out Tuesday, Trump has the support of 38 percent of likely Republican primary voters in South Carolina, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz well behind him with 22 percent. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio has 14 percent and Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has 10 percent. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has 6 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich is at 4 percent.
Zombie Trump. He will not die. No matter what the establishment does. He will not die. Zombie Trump.
Donald J. Trump has become Jeb Bush!!! Well, kinda, sorta, not really. If you need a laugh, these days before South Carolina votes (for GOP) and Nevada votes (Hillary v. Bernie) we’ve got a stupendous “It’s over for Trump” bit of news for you:
Humiliation: JebBush.com redirects to Trump’s official website [snip]
Presidential campaigns typically buy up lots of domain names related to their candidates before those candidates officially announce their intention to run. The reason they do this is obvious: They don’t want rivals or random Internet trolls to buy up the domains and use them to create parody websites that make their candidates look ridiculous.
Remarkably, it seems the Bush campaign never bothered to buy up JebBush.com.
Like Hillary2016, Jeb2016 is not a campaign, it is an embarrassment:
How badly is Bush getting owned in this primary? JebBush.com goes to DonaldJTrump.com.
Poor Jeb Bush.
This Republican primary was supposed to be his to lose. Instead, he’s getting owned by Donald Trump.
How badly is Trump owning Bush?
So badly that JebBush.com leads to Trump’s site instead. [snip]
At the time, it just seemed like a characteristic Jeb bumble: How, after immigration reform activists snapped up TedCruz.com and CarlyFiorina.org became a testament to the layoffs Fiorina ordered at Hewlett-Packard, could Bush’s people not lock up JebBush.com? But after the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, Jeb Bush and his campaign have become objects of a weird kind of pity.
Bush told a New Hampshire audience to “please clap” after he delivered a line; it was a joke, but also kind of wasn’t. A video captured him lighting up with joy when a voter tells him, “You might swing my vote,” then coming over to envelop the poor voter in a hug. (The video was uploaded to YouTube with the title “Jeb hug — sad times.”)
It’s over for Trump!!! If voters confuse Trump for Jeb even for a second, Trump will never recover. Jeb has finally found a way to destroy Trump! Brilliant move by Jeb!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jeb for months has conveyed an image as a first class idiot, a Fredo, a dunce, the doofus on the beach that watches He-Man Trump walk by and throw sand in his face, the idiot loser son that needs mommy to kiss his boo-boo paper cuts, the dried out twig on the tree, the bird born without feathers, the broken egg shell in the carton, the soaked wet book with all the pages lumped together, the fat kid sent to the fat farm by angry parents who goes dewy eyed every time he sees a donut, the inbred royal brat outwitted by an ice cream cone, a one blade scissors, a two legged stool, a stopped up toilet. . . . But that was just a ploy.
Jeb Bush played possum. He prepared a trap for Trump. Jeb’s plan was to make himself such a loser that just seeing Jeb next to The Donald would finish off the mighty Trump. Jeb became the Pigpen to Charlie Brown. Now Trump has fallen into the crafty trap.
Well, maybe not. The truth is Jeb Bush is a loser and Donald Trump is a winner.
Just say Trump is a winner. Need another laugh bought and paid for by Donald J. Trump? Trump trumps again:
Trump Schedules Competing MSNBC Town Hall Opposite Cruz, Rubio CNN Town Hall
In yet another aggressive move that will thrill Trump supporters, late Tuesday morning, Jesse Rodriguez, Senior Producer of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” announced a town hall event with Republican frontrunner Donald Trump that will take place Wednesday night at 8 p.m. The night will be hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. The MSNBC town hall will compete directly with CNN’s long-schedule town hall with Trump’s two closest competitors, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
On Trump’s part, the competing town hall is obviously yet another one of The Donald’s ruthlessly effective political moves to infuriate his competitors and smother their message. [snip]
As far as Trump, unless an angry CNN now rescinds its offer, just days before voting begins in South Carolina, he will enjoy a town hall two-fer. Along with John Kasich and Jeb Bush, Trump is scheduled to appear at a Thursday night CNN town hall event.
If MSNBC will now put up a CNN-style countdown clock for the Trump town hall, my life will be complete.
UPDATE: My life is complete.
Trump trumps the repulsive MSNBC. That’s how you do it. Get a dog to eat a dog. [Apologies to all, we do not mean to impugn our furry friends, it’s just a conventional expression and we correct ourselves not out of political correctness but because dogs are so much better than the Big Media animals, and we don’t want anyone to confuse adorable pets with the vermin of Big Media.]
Trump does not go to MSNBC, as we have angrily denounced before, out of weakness. Trump goes to MSNBC in triumph, not defeat. Trump goes on CNN, then thwarts CNN by using the reptiles at MSNBC to block Cruz/Rubio on CNN. How smart is this guy?
Yesterday, we updated a new poll from South Carolina. Our comment is what we now address:
The question is “did Donald J. Trump blow himself up with his monumental gamble of attacking George W. Bush and the Iraq War in a state where GWB is at 80% popularity and a state which has many veterans?” [snip]
If the GOP establishment, Big Media, and the political establishment in its entirety cannot stop Trump in South Carolina now, then where, when? If Trump can make it there, Trump can make it anywhere… it’s up to you… South Carolina.
If Trump cannot be beaten now, in South Carolina, when everything is going the establishment’s way and will never be better for the establishment – – – – – then when can they ever stop Trump? WHEN??? WHERE???
If Trump wins in South Carolina. . . .
Here’s our Ted Cruz prediction: If Trump wins South Carolina Ted Cruz will leave the race.
Well, maybe that’s just our best advice for Ted Cruz.
Ted Cruz, for his own good should leave the race if Trump wins in South Carolina. Why?
It won’t get better for Ted Cruz if Trump wins in South Carolina. South Carolina is an open primary and there are more open primaries to come and many of them on Super Tuesday March 1. Which means Trump will win big on Super Tuesday if Trump wins South Carolina.
Trump is already way ahead in many Super Tuesday states but his lead will expand like Christie’s belly if Trump wins South Carolina. Once Trump dispatches Cruz and Carson he will be the only outsider left to fight the divided establishment. Then Trump can finish off Rubio. Once Rubio is gone, Jeb Bush will take his anti-Rubio personal vendetta and go home to mommy. For now, Trump’s #1 target is Cruz and if Trump wins South Carolina, Super Tuesday will be a romp for Trump.
That’s not the worst of it for Cruz. On Super Tuesday, Texas will vote. If Cruz loses in Texas, he is not only finished in the 2016 primary fight for president. If Ted Cruz loses in Texas on Super Tuesday March 1, he will be humiliated in Texas. Once the Cruz blood is in the water, Cruz will be bled to death by his opponents in Texas and in the U.S. Senate. Cruz will be primaried when he runs for reelection. His career will possibly be over.
Our advice to Ted Cruz: If Donald Trump wins South Carolina, get out and endorse Trump immediately. Save yourself. Get back on Trump’s good side.
It’s almost over for Trump. He will soon be the nominee.
