“Lock her up! Lock her up”.
Donald Trump was clear and precise. Hillary Clinton was a criminal. She had so many crimes against the American people that it was unbelievable. Crooked Hillary. Lock her up.
He promised that when he was elected he would call for a special prosecutor to put her in the slammer.
Of course, she HAD been investigated over 9 times over the years. And more. And not a single Benghazi committee (run by her political enemies) or the FBI email investigations (run by her political enemy) had found anything illegal. Nothing. Zero. Zilch.
(Side note : Trump himself had been found to have broken the law by not renting to minorities and been force to pay a fine. And just this week he as forced to pay $25,000,000 to the poor fools who had enrolled in his Trump University con. Actual court findings.Not to mention whether he was using illegal techniques to avoid paying taxes the rest of us have been paying for 20 years. He also funneled $25,000 to the Florida attorney general when his Trump U was being investigated for fraud. An investigation that disappeared soon after)
So, when the Donald was elected his little minions were beside themselves with joy. Chanting away “Lock Her Up”. The chants often led by the man Trump has appointed to his inner circle. Even in the throes of victory, the viciousness came out . On election night they shouted “Lock Her Up”
She would finally be brought to justice for all her heinous (yet unnamed) crimes over the years. No one was above the law. It was the cornerstone of his campaign. Crooked Hillary. Lock her up.
Except. Oops. Another bait and switch. Having gotten the Hillary haters to vote for him by his promises to put her behind bars for some imaginary wrongdoing, (The BAIT) he has now decided he has more important things to do (The SWITCH).
His spokesperson, Kelly Conway, now says…well.. yeah..but. you see, even though he promised that during the campaign, now that the campaign is over he has …uh…changed his mind. A week later ?
Personally I was hoping he would appoint a special prosecutor. The problem was, if he had done so, he himself could have been deposed by Clinton’s lawyers. And the last thing Trump wants is to be questioned about his own activities over the years.
So, sorry Trump fans. But you will NOT get to see Hillary in the court. Looks like the conman has just given you your fourth wedgie. OUCH.
Bait and Switch number 4. I am sure there are more to come..

One response to “Trump Bait and Switch Part 4”
Another well written expose’, Ye Olde. Shakespeare used to throw in a few nibbles for the groundlings and Trump is has learned it well. The Donald used short, simple, repetitive phrases: Make America Great Again, Lock Her Up, Crooked Hillary. His forte is manipulation through sensationalism on a 3rd grade level vocabulary. Sorry about the big words.
