No, Trump Didn’t Trick the Media into Covering His Campaign

esquire.comAs long as we’re on the subject of two decades of mostly successful ratfcking, let’s thank He, Trump for stopping by during Happy Hour at the Mena Airport and standing us all to a couple of rounds.

He whipped out his wallet during a chat with Robert Costa of The Washington Post:

In one recent interview, Trump said another topic of potential concern is the suicide of former White House aide Vincent Foster, which remains the focus of intense and far-fetched conspiracy theories on the Internet. “It’s the one thing with her, whether it’s Whitewater or whether it’s Vince or whether it’s Benghazi. It’s always a mess with Hillary,” Trump said in the interview. The presumptive Republican nominee and his associates hope that his tactics will bring fresh scrutiny to the Clintons’ long record in public life, which conservatives characterize as defined by scandals that her allies view as witch hunts. Through social media and Trump’s ability to garner unfiltered attention on the Internet and the airwaves, political strategists believe he could revitalize the controversies among voters who do not remember them well or are too young to have lived through them.
