We know from Wikileaks that the Clinton campaign feared Marco Rubio would be the Republican nominee. The Clinton campaign was convinced that if Rubio were the nominee, Clinton would be toast. So the Clinton campaign set out to work with the media to build up Trump and treat him as legitimate.
The Clinton campaign had help. Politico is reporting tonight that Breitbart coordinated with a liberal activist and organizer who disrupted GOP primary campaign events. The focus? Marco Rubio.
Aaron Black, an associate with Democracy Partners and a former Occupy Wall Street organizer, worked with the pro-Trump site Breitbart, tipping them off about his stunts, exchanging raw video and coordinating coverage, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.
According to the source, Black coordinated with Breitbart via email, phone and in person, including when he dressed up as a robot and trolled Marco Rubio’s events. The relationship was described as very friendly. An article subsequently published on Breitbart featured video footage of a physical confrontation between Black and Rubio’s New Hampshire campaign chairman.
“He worked directly with Breitbart’s political team on the ground in the primary states to sabotage Marco Rubio & Ted Cruz, and elect Trump as nominee of [the Republican] party,” the source told POLITICO. “[Black] was coordinating with [Breitbart’s] top staff to rabble rouse against Rubio at rallies.”
This helped scuttle Marco Rubio, which is exactly what the Clinton machine hoped would happen. Certainly the Clinton campaign was not involved, but Breitbart, which views itself as of the right, worked with a leftwing activist to accomplish what the Clinton campaign hoped for.
Now? Now Clinton will get elected President because Breitbart helped sabotage legitimate, viable candidates in favor of Cheeto Jesus.
