In a shocking moment of clarity, that should also send shivers up the spine of the Democratic party, Republican chairman (and implicity voice of 'the establishment') Reince Priebus admitted on various Sunday talk-shows that campaign traditions don't apply to the so-called Teflon Don noting that "the public just wasn't interested" in his taxes or the various 'stories' that the Deep State is throwing at him. "I don't think the traditional playbook applies.. We've been down this road for a year. And it doesn't apply," Priebus exclaimed, and why the Clinton campaign is likely scrambling, "He's rewritten the playbook."
Summing up the reality of the current situation - with attacks coming at presumotive GOP nominee Trump from all sides - NBC News reports that Priebus said...
"I've got to tell you, I think that all these stories that come out - and they come out every couple weeks - people just don't care."
Voters, Trump told ABC's George Stephanopoulos Friday morning, are not entitled to review his returns before heading to the polls, and the tax rate he pays is "none of your business." Elsewhere, Trump insisted that not only was there nothing to learn from his taxes, but that the public wasn't interested.
When asked if that meant Trump doesn't have to release his tax returns, Priebus said that would be up to the American people.
"They're going to have to decide whether that's a big issue or not," Priebus said.
Speaking with Fox News Sunday, Priebus said that voters just want an "earthquake" when host Chris Wallace asked if reports of Trump repeatedly mistreating women bothered him.
The RNC chair argued that voters aren't judging Trump based on his personal life or his past.
"I think people are judging Donald Trump as to whether or not he's someone that's going to go to Washington and shake things up," Priebus said on ABC. "And that's why he's doing so well."
And that is why Hillary will need every bit of help from Liberal-leaning newsfeeds, Clinton-connected reporters, and a Deep State desparate to maintain the status quo... no matter what.
