"Peter" has some thoughts on Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Hillary Clinton is a pathological liar and inherently dishonest. She has committed several federal felonies involving national security and corruption in office as Secretary of State. She has patterns of dishonesty going all the way back to her time as First Lady of Arkansas and continuing through the U.S. Senate to the present. These traits and activities have given her negative poll numbers reflecting unlikeable (60%) and untrustworthy (75%). She is the assumed nominee for POTUS representing the Democratic Party.
Donald Trump is bombastic and thin-skinned. He is undiplomatic and insulting. Any perceived criticism draws disproportional retaliation and a long lasting grudge. These traits and activities are reflected in negative poll numbers showing the voters think he is unlikeable (60%) and untrustworthy (51%). He is the assumed nominee for POTUS representing the Republican Party. Neither of these candidates is acceptable to a majority of the American people. So now what?
The establishment from both sides of the aisle are busy conducting feverish meetings behind closed doors running through simulations and scenarios that might extricate their parties from the inevitable failure and public disgrace such a match will unleash. Hillary is the simplest to resolve. Where she would otherwise be immune from prosecution by a democratic administration, in these circumstances an indictment is the clear resolution to the problem. She will be indicted and removed from the ticket. Joe Biden or a similar choice will be installed in her place and the election will proceed normally.
The Donald is another matter entirely. He has successfully hijacked the Republican Party. The feverish meetings behind closed doors are searching for the means to blackmail Trump into withdrawing. Some foreign governments are also intent on short circuiting his candidacy. And those foreign governments are not hampered by our rules, laws and traditions. Pragmatism is their guide. Already we have seen violent mobs under foreign flags in the hundreds at Trump rallies. They have battered and harassed Trump supporters and burned the U.S. flag. They have been emboldened by the lack of police enforcement. If these brazen attacks don't succeed in getting Trump to withdraw, they will go after Trump himself. In a mob riot situation the Secret Service personnel could be diverted or just overwhelmed. Anything can happen, especially when professional provocateurs are leading the foreign mobs. Or should I call the provocateurs military officers leading their battalions.
