First real information.
Amid all the hacks and counterhacks in this "election", this
is the first revelation that truly surprises me, the first INFORMATION that I didn't already know or assume.
A long series of managers for Trump's campaign are coming out and saying that Trump failed to perform the basic steps necessary for a national campaign. He wouldn't allow the managers to prepare for oppo research by learning his own history in detail.
This explains why the campaign is constantly blindsided by the Clinton syndicate, and it also explains why the managers keep quitting in despair.
Everyone knows how the Clintons operate. Consistent pattern for 40 years. The Clintons kill their opponents. Plain and simple fact. This is why media and government officials always obey the Clintons. Nobody wants to die.
Trump is a top-level hard operator who knows how to fight dirty. His record in dealing with Atlantic City and Vegas shows that he CAN beat Mafias. So I ass-u-me-d that he would take all necessary steps to beat or match the Clinton Mafia, which is more vicious than the Wop or Injun Mafias in modern times.
But he didn't.
Conclusion: He never intended to win this. He's either (1) doing it for a lark, or (2) running a big Soros-style bet on chaos, or (3) paid by the Clintons to guarantee a total Clinton landslide with full mandate for killing the Deplorables.
