Plan B for rebel Republicans: Wound Trump so he’ll lose to a Democrat in general election

President Trump’s antagonists inside the Republican Party now have a fallback plan to scuttle his re-election: using the 2020 primary fight as a bludgeon to inflict irreparable political damage on him in the November general election.

The “Never Trump” movement’s preferred strategy is to recruit a formidable Republican who might block the president’s renomination, or at least mount an aggressive challenge that presses him all the way to the convention in Charlotte set for late summer next year. Efforts are underway to woo Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland and other top Republicans uneasy with Trump.

Short of that, key renegade Republicans are preparing to settle for Plan B: mortally wound him.

“The example of Pat Buchanan is certainly in the minds of many of us of a certain age; impossible to win, eminently possible to wound,” Rick Wilson, a Republican consultant and leading Trump foe, told the Washington Examiner.

    GOP Establishment’s Rick Wilson: Donor Class Must ‘Put a Bullet in Donald Trump’
    By Tony Lee – 28 Oct 2015

    On Tuesday evening, establishment Republican consultant Rick Wilson said the GOP establishment donor class must find a way to “put a bullet” in GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

    In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Wilson conceded that “Trump is still a very powerful force right now” because he appeals to part of the of the conservative base that Wilson said was activated by his “nativist” message. Wilson insisted that the donor class “can’t just sit back on the sidelines and say, ‘oh well, don’t worry, this will all work itself out.’”

    “They’re still going to have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump,” Wilson said. “And that’s a fact.”

    All of the “uneasy Republicans” are so terribly concerned that President Trump will take the nation upon his shoulders and succeed in doing that. They are a bunch of reactionary back-stabbers, as vicious as the unscrupulous Socialists of the Democrat gang arrayed against him. Simply because they fear comparisons of all of their collective feet mired in D.C.Swamp mud, thus paralyzing them in addition to the bogus Republican SOB’s who draw pay for doing nothing, misappropriating the tax dollars paid with trust that this government will finally resolve what has been waiting endlessly to be resolved. They have failed us, more times than we know. Proof that we’re a tolerant nation can not be more obvious than the patience of Americans while most of their elected types do their worst, in belief that they do same “for the greater good.”
    Summed up to a total, Donald Trump is the defender of the people, who everyday does what is necessary to keep our “Ship of State” afloat and “on course” despite those who would deter the nation out of a pure spite vendetta.
