The release of an old audio tape of Donald Trump engaged in crude “locker room” talk was one of the low points in this year’s presidential election campaign. Many Trump supporters wondered if their candidate could possibly recover from this setback.
One of Trump’s former rivals for the nomination came to the rescue. On Facebook, Dr. Ben Carson wrote in part:
I feel fairly certain that the progressives have had knowledge of this conversation for a long time and dropped it at this point in time in an effort too obscure the release of damaging information about Hillary Clinton and her desire for open borders. I believe that they have more material that they will release periodically up until the election to keep a negative focus on Donald Trump. They do not want to discuss the vital issues that are destroying our nation and the future of our children, because they do not have logical solutions and offer more of the same that has gotten us into this precarious situation.
Those of us who do not want to see America fundamentally devolve into something worse must be wise enough to recognize the scheme that is being played out here. We must demand not only that the issues be discussed but also that we make our decisions based on issues and not on personalities or decade old statements and behavior by Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. The political elites and their loyal media are desperate because they are seeing the large enthusiastic crowds for Donald Trump and the meager crowds for Hillary Clinton, and they know that there will be a huge enthusiasm gap on election day.
The last point is especially important to bear in mind: Not even Clinton’s biggest supporters can deny that there is little genuine enthusiasm for her candidacy, especially when compared with the huge audiences Trump is able to attract.
Their only hope now is to try to siphon off some of that support by demoralizing Trump voters, using a slow drip of unflattering revelations.
In a way, that says more about the sad state of Hillary Clinton’s campaign than that of Donald Trump.
