Trump is often ridiculed as a bully. Mainly because he has been able to effectively brand his opponents with titles such as “Crooked Hillary Clinton.” Ironically, Clinton is considered one of the most ruthless politicians since Lyndon B. Johnson. There’s a “below the belt” tactic Democrats love to play, and Clinton is following the LBJ playbook to the letter.

Remember This Story the next Time You Hear Harry Reid Try to Link Donald Trump with Russia
In one of LBJ’s congressional runs, he instructed his campaign manager to spread a nasty rumor that his opponent, well let’s just say, had a romantic fling with sows. The man was dumbfounded. “Christ, Lyndon, we can’t call the guy a pig****er. It’s not true.” To which, Johnson is said to reply, “Of course it ain’t true. But I want to make the son-of-a-b*tch deny it.”
Since last Friday when the F.B.I. reopened Hillary’s email investigation, the Dems have been in a state of panic. So Reid wrote his own letter to the director of the F.B.I.
“…it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government…which Trump praises at every opportunity…”
What is true is that the F.B.I. pursued an investigation into the role of Russia in the American presidential campaign. Donald Trump has been scrutinized along with his advisors.
Even the New York Times reported,
“Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump.”
Russia Is Apparently the New Pig
Here’s the thing – Donald Trump hasn’t used these kinds of tactics. He is not a politician with a black bag full of nasty tricks to undermine his opponent. What he has done is brand his opponent with names, yes, but names that attack her where she is weak. For Hillary, is it simply pointing out the truth of her blatant corruption.
Don’t forget, in the last election, it was Reid who stood up on the Senate floor and flat out lied, saying that Romney had not paid his taxes. It didn’t matter that it was a lie. Again, it was a pig he wanted to see Romney deny.
Unfettered by the political bonds of political correctness, Trump has been able to withstand every dirty trick and nasty accusation. Is he a bully? No. It’s just because the Dems don’t know what to do with a man that won’t cower to their nasty tactics.
