I play down to the audience. Your post was pretty juvenile.

re: Donald Trump didn't want to be President By Michael Wolff
Just from his wikipedia page:
quote:


in its review of Wolff's book Burn Rate, Brill's Content criticized Wolff for "apparent factual errors" and said that more than a dozen of the subjects he mentioned complained that Wolff had "invented or changed quotes" that he attributed to them.[20]

In a 2004 cover story for The New Republic, Michelle Cottle wrote that Wolff was "uninterested in the working press," preferring to focus on "the power players—the moguls" and was "fixated on culture, style, buzz, and money, money, money." She also noted that "the scenes in his columns aren’t recreated so much as created—springing from Wolff’s imagination rather than from actual knowledge of events." Calling his writing "a whirlwind of flourishes and tangents and asides that often stray so far from the central point that you begin to wonder whether there is a central point", she quoted one daily New York columnist as saying "I find it nearly impossible to read his columns. They’re flabby. I don’t know what the frick he’s trying to say." One journalist who knew Wolff told Cottle, "He can't write. He doesn't report."[21] Cottle subsequently called Wolff "possibly the bitchiest media big foot writing today."[22]

"Wolff's prose is difficult to hack through," wrote Erik Wemple in The Washington Post, adding that Wolff "is the Foxconn of the pointless, comma-laden aside." [23]

The Columbia Journalism Review criticized Wolff in 2010 when he suggested that The New York Times was aggressively covering the breaking News International phone hacking scandal as a way of attacking News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch. CJR called Wolff's analysis "pathetic", "disgusting", "twisted", and based on "zero evidence".[24]

His former employer, New York Magazine, has called him an "angry man for pay" and a "media provocateur".[25] Howard Kurtz once said, "Michael is rarely impressed by anyone other than himself." [26]

In November 2016, Wolff evoked criticism for stating that journalists should serve as "stenographers." [27] Charlie Pierce called Wolff's comment "an incredible pile of bull shite."[27]


Clearly, the guy is a trustworthy journo that should be believed when he says he has insider information.

Is that not an appropriate response to stereotyping half the voting public as a wrestling fan caricature?

Michael Flynn, the retired general who served as Trump’s opening act at campaign rallies, had been told by his friends that it had not been a good idea to take $45,000 from the Russians for a speech. “Well, it would only be a problem if we won,” ­Flynn assured them.


Bill took $750,000.

From the campaign wanting to lose


Ah yes, it was his sneaky plan all along to say tons of really controversial things, become a pariah among the global elite, work 20 hours days for 18 months and spend millions of his own money in order to lose.

So, i'll put you down as not a believer in 3-D intergalactic chess... remember that works both ways.

They don't even keep track of their own talking points anymore. What does it say about the Democratic platform and the previous eight years, that a guy who wanted to lose kicked their ass?

Donald Trump wins so much, even when he's desperately trying to lose, he just can't stop winning!

Trump was already so tired of winning that he wanted to lose. And he can't even lose without winning.

Lemme see...

Trump didn't want to be President so he held rallies every day for a year.

Hillary wanted to be President so she spent the year drinking Old Fashions.

The ad hominem attacks don’t hurt.

And I’m old enough to remember when hippies were anti-establishment. Now you’re the ones who can’t think for yourselves. So sad.

Sure.. he just decided it would be fun to take the shite that's been dished out to him all this time, instead of going about his business, making money the old fashioned way.
