Apparently Hillary was tone death to what brought victory to her husband: it’s the economy stupid. While the Donald was rambling on about making America great again by magically bringing back jobs, Hillary was promoting her sweetness for supporting the Children's Defense Fund. All very commendable, but did she really think that was a high priority for out of work men? I mean even crazy old Donald knew that was a waste of time issue.

Hillary just lacks basic, crude, political skills. As I have said many times the electorate doesn’t care a wit if a politician is the devil himself as long as he convices it that he is its devil.

Trump understands that Joe blow doesn’t care about facts (truly the weakness of a democracy), he only cares if a politician’s words compliment the story line that he desires for himself. In this case jobs and a return to the good old days.
