Mike Allen over at Axios gives a look at how Trump’s people think his stirring the pot about sports teams will steal the spotlight and focus from Trump’s guy losing in the Tuesday specail US Senate election in Alabama AND the second US Senate failed attempt to repeal Obamacare….
Yes, there WILL BE silent protestactions before most of today’s NFL football games and yes the media IS gonna run with these protest vidio’s….
But Trump IS STILL gonna take two loses this week…..
And Robert Mueller is busy these days….
Mike Allen quoted former Clinton advisor Doug Sosnik on what President Trump is trying to accomplish by attacking professional athletes who protest during the national anthem: “One of Trump’s typical moves is to toss a bomb out of nowhere to deflect what is really bothering him, in the hopes that the press will be distracted.”
He added: “There is a good chance that the candidate he endorsed and campaigned for will lose in the Alabama Senate primary. On top of that, it looks like … another failed Republican attempt to repeal Obamacare. So he figures that the shows on Sunday focusing on his fights with professional athletes is more appealing than a discussion about how he is becoming a loser.”
