The Trump campaign made chinless deadbeat thumb Jason Miller the face of media outreach all weekend, which is a good sign for those of us who want to see Trump defeated by a humiliating landslide. Miller is among the lowest quality of the low-quality hires. He got his ass pretty well chewed up by Ana Cabrera on CNN a short while ago, and during the appearance, he telegraphed the Trump campaign strategy for the remaining 29 days:
If Trump doesn’t leave Walter Reed today to great fanfare, I’ll be surprised. I think he knows he has to play strongman or he’ll definitely lose. He can leave the hospital in greater safety than any other elderly, obese COVID-19 patient since Trump has a publicly funded medical team and facilities at his public housing unit, so he’ll almost surely skip out.
Miller informed viewers more than once that he’d spoken to Trump twice and inserted the words “hiding in a basement” at least two or three times in reference to Biden, so that will be among the lines we’ll hear repeatedly, along with the absurd conceit that Trump defeated COVID personally and will now lead the country to defeat it across the land.
There’s a non-zero chance Trump will take a turn for the worse and end up back in the hospital, but he and the low-quality hires can see defeat looming and are gambling that he won’t. It’s really their last shot, and maybe they figure they can hide it if he does get sicker, just as they probably plotted to hide the original diagnosis until Jennifer Jacobs at Bloomberg got the leaked intelligence of Hope Hicks’ diagnosis, followed by Trump becoming symptomatic.
It’s stupid and reckless and irresponsible, just like the political stunt Trump pulled yesterday when he forced Secret Service agents to drive his contagious ass around in a hermetically sealed vehicle. But it’s not surprising. The Trumps are careless and they break things, including the country, and that’s what they’ll do until we kick them out. The end.
