AMAZING: How Trump’s and Clinton’s Campaign Strategies Reversed

On Saturday night, as news broke that terrorists had placed multiple bombs in New York City, one of which exploded, injuring nearly 30 people, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump reacted. Trump reacted approximately 30 minutes after the bomb went off, stating, “a bomb went off in New York.”

This prompted consternation from the collected media, as well as Hillary Clinton, who said, “I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this. I think it’s also wiser to wait until you have information before making conclusions, because we are just in the beginning stages of trying to determine what happened.” Of course, in the same media scrum, Hillary said that she had been briefed “about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota.” Oops.

Hillary looked half-dead while talking to the media, too:

Meanwhile, Trump had jumped on Twitter, where he fired off these unrelated tweets over the past 24 hours:

Somebody take that man’s Twitter password away.

One of the great ironies of the 2016 race is the fact that early on, it appeared that Trump’s strategy was media ubiquity, while Hillary sought to disappear entirely from the stage, allowing Trump to blow himself up. Now, Trump desperately needs to avoid live scenarios, instead opting for pre-scripted appearances and pre-scheduled tweets – and Hillary has the burden of looking alive. Right now, Trump seems better able to achieve discipline than Hillary the verisimilitude of life.
