TRUMP 2.OH SHI.... !

2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 

I’ve been reading and hearing about Trump’s “shakeup” of his campaign. He's putting a Breitbart flunkie as the head of his campaign. Oh, yeah. That will really change the tone of his campaign. Ha! I just saw his spokesbimbo on CNN saying “it’s not a shakeup”, and I agree. This isn’t a shakeup, it's just a re-clustering of the clusterfvck that is Trump’s campaign. Granted, as always, there a solid 1/3 of the electorate who will vote for a potted plant if it has an “R” beside its name on the ballot* - because they are that stupid. 

How bad have things gotten for Republicans? Check out this article from a conservative and former Republican:
I was always way ahead of the curve. And my exposés primarily appeared in right-wing publications. Back when they were interested in serious research. I also founded a conservative college newspaper, held positions in the Reagan administration and at several conservative think tanks, and published five books that conservatives applauded. I’ve written for umpteen major conservative publications – National Review, the Weekly Standard, the Wall Street Journal and Forbes, among them.
But no longer. That was the old right. The last thing hysteria promoters want is calm, reasoned argument backed by facts. And I’m horrified that these people have co-opted the name “conservative” to scream their messages of hate and anger.
Extremism in the defense of nothing
Nothing the new right does is evidently outrageous enough to receive more than a peep of indignation from the new right. 
And then there’s the late Andrew Breitbart (assassinated on the orders of Obama, natch). A video from February shows him shrieking at peaceful protesters: “You’re freaks and animals! Stop raping people! Stop raping people! You freaks! You filthy freaks! You filthy, filthy, filthy raping, murdering freaks!” He went on for a minute-and-a-half like that. Speak not ill of the dead? Sen. Ted Kennedy’s body was barely cold when Breitbart labeled him “a big ass motherf@#$er,” a “duplicitous bastard” a “prick” and “a special pile of human excrement.”
The new right loved it! Upon his own death shortly after, Breitbart was immediately sanctified and sent to lead the Seraphim. He was repeatedly eulogized as “the most important conservative of our time never to hold office,” skipping right past William F. What’s-his-name Jr.
There was nothing “conservative” about Breitbart. Ever-consummate gentlemen like Buckley and Ronald Reagan would have been mortified by such behavior as Breitbart’s – or West’s or Heartland’s. “There you go again,” the Gipper would have said in his soft but powerful voice.

Here’s the link to the full Salon articlePlease note that this article was from 2012. Things have gotten exponentially worse stupider with the stupid is flowing at an unprecedented rate. The regular stupidity spraying out of Republican garden hose has now turned into a firehose of lunacy, all with the GOP stamp of approval.

So, we’ll see what “Trump: The Reclustering” brings. My guess is that Trump 2.0 will be the same crappy Trump, but with a USB port. 

*And maybe a white hood.
