Much of the 2016 Presidential campaign season has centered on whether Hillary Clinton is trusted enough or Donald Trump has the temperament to be commander-in-chief. There doesn’t seem to be much change in their attempts to alter the narrative concerning how people view them on the public stage. As far back as 2005 when Hillary and Bill Clinton attended Trump and Melania’s wedding ceremony as VIP guests it sure looked like all four had a pretty good time.

The billionaire businessman has, over the years, given at least $100,000 to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation and  made multiple cash donations  to Hillary Clinton’s various political campaigns before this one.

At the first GOP debate back in August, Trump was asked what he “bought” with those donations of his to the Clintons. His answer sounded much the same as usual:

“With Hillary Clinton? I said, ‘Be at my wedding.’ And she came to my wedding. You know why? She had no choice because I gave.” The Donald boasted.

Clinton gave her familiar parsed and glib take on the subject when asked about it shortly after.

“We were not friends.” she said.“I happened to be planning to be in Florida and I thought it’d be fun to go to his wedding, because it’s always entertaining.”
 Considering that Trump is slumping in the polls of key battleground states this week after enduring perhaps his worst two weeks on the campaign trail – and seeming not to care about it, one has to wonder if the conspiracy theories which orbit this contest may have some merit.
Could it be possible that Mr. Trump is indeed a plant by the Clintons to make the path to the presidency easier for Hillary?
One article I found interesting comes from  theindependentthinker2016. Just before Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States, he had a conversation with Bill Clinton.
 According to five different aids present for the conversation, Clinton encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party. Whatever happened in that alledged meeting answers many questions as to the Trumpster’s overall behavior.
From his alienation of women, minorities, Muslims, and practically anyone who doesn’t identify as part of his base of supporters, to the latest unhinged comment of  Obama being the founder of ISIS, there is very little doubt the GOP candidate just can’t adjust to being a “statesman”.
Lest we forget Hillary’s shortcomings, it should be remembered that she pursued the same course of action against Barack Obama during the 2008 election. Time and again she questioned Obama’s  legitimacy  to run for president. Bill Clinton dismissed the then-senator’s  2008 South Carolina primary win, and who can forget the infamous Bosnia “sniper fire” story ?

Whatever one may think of either candidate, it is safe to say they both have attempted to use  white nationalism as a means to garner votes from a once monolithic bloc. Clinton has only now realized this isn’t  how to win anymore while Trump and the Republicans can’t  bring themselves to embrace enough of the “others” to make this a competitive race.

Are you missing  Obama yet?
