Republicans Have A Contingency Plan If Donald Trump Wins The Primary And Man, Things Are Gonna Get Much Worse
Donald Trump is bad.
You know what’s worse? Four hundred and sixty eight other Donald Trumps, Trumping about, spouting nonsense babble about building a dome over middle America to keep out the Latinos, the Muslims, the Asians and hell, while we’re at it, the Blacks, too.
Keep America White Again.
But that’s what we’re gonna get from the GOP if Trump wins their nomination. Because their plan is to tell every candidate to ‘act like Trump.’
The Washington Post obtained an internal GOP document that has made plans for a Trump nomination. The plan?
In a seven-page confidential memo that imagines Trump as the party’s presidential nominee, the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee urges candidates to adopt many of Trump’s tactics, issues and approaches — right down to adjusting the way they dress and how they use Twitter.
Donald Trump’s use of Twitter consists of retweeting racist memes, sharing fake infographics and linking to Infowars.
This should be GREAT.
In the memo on the “Trump phenomenon,” NRSC Executive Director Ward Baker said Republicans should embrace his tough talk about China and “grab onto the best elements of [his] anti-Washington populist agenda.” Above all, they should appeal to voters as genuine and beyond the influence of special interests.
“Trump has risen because voters see him as authentic, independent, direct, firm, — and believe he can’t be bought,” Baker writes. “These are the same character traits our candidates should be advancing in 2016. That’s Trump lesson #1.”
I hate to hear what Trump Lesson Number 2 is.
The memo does practice some restraint, cautioning candidates to be slightly less terrible than Trump.
He writes that it is prudent for Senate candidates to craft their own political brands distinct from Trump’s and to distance themselves by quickly condemning his more controversial comments, such as “wacky things about women.”
Lol 2016 GOP planners, that’s the part your men candidates probably love most. Hell, this will be the only advice of yours they ignore.
This is gonna be *such* a great year.
