Trump Advisers:  Don't Bother With Walker. He's Gonna Lose.
October 18, 2018

I've got a confession to make.

I'm more than a little surprised that Scott Walker, who is normally pretty politically savvy, has hitched his campaign wagon so strongly with Trump. I was sure that has Trump became more politically toxic and kept sinking in the polls, Walker would quietly but quickly distance himself from the Orange Shitgibbon.

But the opposite has happened and Walker is clinging more and more tightly to Trump. To the point that even though Walker is trailing his Democratic opponent, Tony Evers, by 10 points in the polls, Walker is welcoming Trump to come and campaign for him in central Wisconsin next week.

Even more surprising is the fact that Trumps political advisers are telling him not to go to Wisconsin because Walker is a lost cause:

:Some advisers have urged him, without success, not to travel to Texas or Wisconsin, two states where the president has announced campaign rallies next week. The advisers had argued he would be wasting his time, because they believe Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is going to win his race, while Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) is likely to lose his.

The whole country could see how bad Walker was in the 2016 election season when his presidential bid lasted a scant seven weeks before collapsing in on itself. But to be so bad as to having Trump's people wanting Trump to distance himself from Walker - instead of the other way around - well, that's gotta hurt.

And as a side note to Walker - I and about six million of my closest friends are more than willing to help you back on November 7th, after your get your eviction notice.
