Longtime Clinton family ally and James Carville is out with a few new spunky fundraising appeal letters.
In them, the Democratic strategist warns that Donald Trump could improve by the final debate against Hillary Clinton next week.
Carville has lots of Carvillesque names for The Donald that include “L-O-S-E-R” and “raving orange tire-fire.” He said when Trump loses, he comes back “madder than a wet hen.”
“Donald Trump’s public persona is all about winning,” he wrote in an email letter sent out Thursday. “He’s a winner, and he always wins ‘big league.’ Or so he says. A lot. But when he’s on the debate stage, Donald is a loser-with-a-capital-L. I have watched a lot of presidential debates in my life, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything as lopsided as these Clinton-Trump debates. In a race this close, anything that can gin up some momentum for our side is a good thing — and watching Hillary beat that guy on point after point, issue after issue, fact after fact sure as hell got me cheering at my TV the past couple weeks. But winning a debate and winning an election are not the same thing. And if there’s one thing we know about our opponent, it’s that when he gets knocked down, he comes back madder than a wet hen.”
“There’s still time left in this race for the wind to shift again, including another whole debate next week. I know Hillary is going to take each day left in this campaign deadly serious, and we need to do the same — because I’ll be damned if we’re gonna let the raving orange tire-fire we saw on stage win this election.”
In another letter sent out this week, Carville wrote about Trump’s lack of experience as a politician.
“Trump doesn’t have a lick of experience outside the dubious success he’s had in business,” he wrote. “If you ask me, it doesn’t take much of a genius to lose $1 billion in one year — and it sure doesn’t sound like someone I’d trust with Monopoly money, let alone the full faith and credit of the United States.”
“After the first debate, I almost felt bad for Trump’s buddy Chris Christie when I saw him on MSNBC, because all he could say in his post-game analysis was basically, ‘well sure, if you want somebody who can put together a coherent thought or sentence of course it would be Hillary Clinton.’ I’ve been in some tough spin spots myself, but I’ve never seen anything like the 50 shades of awful Donald Trump displayed on that debate stage.”
“…But here’s the thing: we still have one more debate next week, and then that’s the ballgame. And Trump’s gotta get better — because he can’t get any worse. So we can’t get comfy.”
