I’m sure you’ve heard the leftist talking point being uttered throughout this presidential campaign by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and many a liberal pundit, TV host, and candidate. They claim that Republican nominee Donald Trump is being used by ISIS, the brutal terrorist group referred to by Barack Obama as “the JV team,” in recruitment videos. They also hit Trump hard on what they describe as “his bromance” with Russian president Vladimir Putin, who Trump has praised on numerous occasions.
Revealed in the Wikileaks leak of John Podesta, Hillary campaign chair, emails is the identity of the person who came up with this strategy in order to “politically slaughter” Trump.
Huffington Post reporter Brent Budowsky, in emails to Podesta in December 2015, advised the Hillary Clinton campaign to hit the GOP nominee with the “Trump ISIS video” and the Putin “bromance.”
“Re the Trump ISIS video, if we don’t have the proof campaign should assign 100 people to look for it ASAP, there is probably something on tape somewhere,” he wrote in a December 2015 email to Podesta, apparently referring to an ISIS propaganda video that incorporates Trump.
Budowsky also advised Podesta on how to deal with Trump as he relates to Putin, encouraging him to “slaughter” Trump with stories of his Putin “bromance.”
“Odds that Putin agrees to remove Assad are only slightly better than the odds the College of Cardinals chooses me to someday succeed Pope Francis,” he wrote. “Best approach is to slaughter Donald for his bromance with Putin, but not go too far betting on Putin re Syria.”
There is a reason the late-great Andrew Breitbart coined the term “Democrat Media Complex.” This collusion between a major liberal news source and the Hillary Clinton campaign proves that they are not trying to report the news, they are actively working with Democrats to craft the message and make the news.
