Wow: Team Clinton's 'Pied Piper' Strategy of Using Media to Promote Trump Totally Backfired

Now that Donald Trump has won the presidency, Team Clinton is surely regretting its strategy during the primaries of using the media to elevate the GOP’s Pied Piper candidates.

In an email released by WikiLeaks last month, a memo outlines the campaign’s strategy when it came to the GOP field. Foremost among their goals was “to make whomever the Republicans nominate unpalatable to a majority of the electorate.”

The memo discusses using the large field of diverse candidates against themselves. “In this scenario, we don’t want to marginalize the more extreme candidates, but make them more “Pied Piper” candidates who actually represent the mainstream of the Republican Party.”

Among the three “Pied Piper” candidates listed? You guessed it: Donald Trump.

“We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to [take] them seriously.”

Big Yuge mistake.
