Documents uncovered by the hacker “Guccifer 2.0” show that the Democratic National Committee plans to spend nearly $1,000,000 in efforts to sabotage the Republican Convention in Cleveland.
First reported by The Smoking Gun, the 22-page “Counter Convention Plan Sketch” will “set the tone in Cleveland before the convention kicks off with activities previewing the most likely and most outrageous falsehoods we expect to hear at the RNC.”
In addition to providing “mobile rapid response” to the Republican activities, DNC operatives will host “live-staged” events — like a Reince Priebus-themed “Bailey’s Cereal Breakfast” — mocking the GOP and its presumptive nominee Donald Trump.
Aides also plan to “infiltrate friendly union hotels and properties around the convention that Republicans will be patronizing to distribute ‘care’ packages” of anti-Trump chotchkies.
The swag bags include a “Trumpocalypse” survival kit, (barf bag, Tylenol, clothespin to hold nose while voting for Trump) a “Go Trump Yourself” kit (wig, fake tan, “Tiny foam fingers/hand clappers“) and the “Trump Successful Businessman” kit (check from “your Dad” for $40 million, diploma from Trump University).
By the DNC’s own estimations, these operations will cost upwards of $800,000.
