(Okay start paying very close attention around the 3:30 mark.)
"It's actually genius. I don't think he's a dumb guy. I don't think he is playing a dumb game here. What he's doing with that is genius. If he was going to say at hat debate 'No, no, no I'll never run as an independent I'll only run as a Republican,' he loses all his leverage, Then he's just one of the other Republicans. But if he says 'No, you guys be nice to me or I'm going to jump in as an independent thereby guaranteeing Hillary Clinton will be the next President.' What does that mean? That means if he doesn't do that the Republicans owe him forever. And if he does do that Hillary Clinton becomes President and she owes him forever."
Okay this actually made me sit up and take notice.
Now I have NO idea if Trump is actually smart enough to have had this be his plan since he first jumped into the race, but right now he really IS in this position.
In short Trump may have dreamed up this entire charade, which by the way includes saying those incredibly racist and insensitive remarks knowing how the Republican base would respond, simply for the opportunity to walk away with more power than any businessman has ever wielded in the history of the country.
If this works out the way it appears it almost has to work out, we may all have to stand in awe of the genius of Donald Trump.
And thinking about that is already starting to make me nauseous.
