Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a video on Twitter on Aug. 25 slamming rival Donald Trump’s stances on immigration.

Trump’s new aim: Poison a Clinton presidency

The trick out of Brooklyn isn’t just to make Hillary Clinton win but to make her win as something other than a brain-damaged crook who stole the election and will spend the next four years selling out the government from her deathbed.

The Clinton de-legitimization project is now central to Donald Trump’s campaign and such a prime component of right-wing media that it’s already seeped beyond extremist chatrooms into “lock her up” chants on the convention floor, national news stories debating whether polls actually can be rigged, and voters puzzling over that photo they think they saw of her needing to be carried up the stairs.

The Clinton campaign has deliberately positioned its response as an offensive boomerang rather than a rebuttal: don’t defend against the attacks, just redirect fire at the messenger. “It holds up a mirror to Donald Trump and what his campaign is about, and says everything Continue reading “Trump’s new aim: Poison a Clinton presidency”

Why McCain refuses to go maverick on Trump

PHOENIX — John McCain has held his tongue for more than a year as Donald Trump dubbed him a loser and “not a war hero.” Trump accused the Vietnam War POW of failing to help veterans and hesitated to endorse the five-term senator’s reelection.
