Harlan Hill appeared as a guest on Bartiromo’s show Tuesday morning to argue that Hillary Clinton was an untenable candidate weighed down by too many scandals. That is why he — a Democratic strategist and Sanders supporter — was leaning toward voting for Donald Trump, he said.

(Harlan points out the similarities between Trump and Sanders)

Clinton’s lead was “insurmountable,” he said. All the same, the Democratic frontrunner’s shady past was enough to make him reconsider his party allegiance.

“I am now turning my attention from that side of the aisle to the Republican side, I’m a Democratic strategist. I’ve done 120 campaigns all over this country, and I think that Hillary Clinton’s track record of lies, deceit, and fraud — her 30 years of scandals, from Benghazi to the email scandal — it just means that she’s an untenable candidate in my opinion. So I’m looking at my Republican options.

Asked to clarify what those options were, Hill replied: “Donald Trump. That’s it.”

"Today, Hill's analysis and commentary is featured on national television, including CNN, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, Fox News Radio, Newsmax TV and RNN's "Richard French Live". Hill’s wealth of experience places him among global experts in integrating complex data and systems to advance clients’ interests in domestic and international political campaigns."

Yeah...this guy sounds like a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, with most of his time spent on Fox.

I think the term "useful idiot" was coined specifically for people like Harlan Hill.

The "scandal" issue relating to Hillary Clinton is overblown. For the fairly specific reason that there really isn't any substance to it. The Republicans have been huffing and puffing for the best part of four years over Benghazi, and nothing has come of it. The same way they huffed and puffed over Whitewater (to the tune of a hundred million or so in public money) and got little more than a stained cocktail dress.

But if it makes the Trumpistas sleep better at night in their double-wide trailers, have at it. Come November, I think they'll see they've been played for fools once again.

Do you think MSNBC would give Hill the time of day to say why he thinks Hillary’s track record of lies, deceit, fraud and her 30 years of scandals for the reason why he is leaning towards voting for Trump? LOL. I guess if it does not come from "safe place" media outlets it must not be true.

Why not? They have conservatives hosting shows, they run Trump rallies commercial free and uninterrupted and would put anyone on if they thought it would bring ratings.

Oh look, FOX news source. Forgive me if I don't watch, they are the ones who love labeling corrupt Republicans "Democrat".



Are Americans so stupid that thought McCain was a Democrat by then, really?

Also, and even more amusingly, they seem to be comparatively quiet over Trump's own quotes that seem mighty liberal:

(A whole search result comes up, not just Trump's personal quote about him saying how he's more like a Democrat...)


Not just dems.

Everybody should vote Trump.
For obvious reasons.


So what are these obvious reasons, like using lobbyists to get his own way? Using illegal immigrants? Flip-flopping on a number of issues, the best of which was his sloppy wording over his H1B flip-flop that basically claimed everyone in this country wasn't talented? Maybe it was a gaffe, or maybe he let his contempt for even you show since you are as much a citizen of this country... Here is the gaffe, and - you guessed it - A FOX interview is the news source: "because we have to have talented people in this country"

https://www.google.com/search?q=donald+trump+h1b

Even Brietbart's readers seem to know the "obvious":

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/03/04/trump-i-remain-totally-committed-to-eliminating-h-1b-abuse/

So if Trump's (former) supporters are questioning him...

Seems obvious...

And, no, a candidate's job is to win over voters by telling the truth. A candidate's supporters also have to do the same job. Do not be lazy and assume everyone is on the same page, "for obvious reasons".

All that doesn't mean I won't vote for him, but I'm undecided. Once I'm decided then I'll do the job you're doing since you're the committed supporter right now.

Nothing more than a collection of screen captures and video clips. Even the newscaster in the OP's video looks more like a porn star, or if nothing else is a walking product placement ad for which brand of makeup to avoid...

No, I'm essentially saying that it's like heaving a headline saying "Non-racist guy wants to ban black people from his store"

Trump has used the system and knows that the politicians are greasy bastards, he doesn't owe anyone favours unlike Hillary who is padding her foundation and her own pocket by trading favours for money. Call it whatever you want, Hillary isn't interesting enough to illicit a 250k per speech fee from places like Wall Street without a little kickback.

You would think liberals would applaud this. They seem to want to give them drivers licenses, Obamacare, the right to vote and every other benefit a "legal" immigrant can get so this should not be an issue.

Can you lead me to a victim of her email "scandal"?
Not until we find out who got there hands on the classified documents. May be decades before the real impact is known.

There were admins in the Clinton Foundation who were reading and processing her mail.

What secrets did they sell and to whom?

Can you source the claim that "admins in the Clinton Foundation" were reading and processing her email?
