David Plouffe: Donald Trump Is a “Spectacle” and a “Sideshow” (Video)
Those birther attacks must really be taking a toll.
Obama’s Senior Adviser David Plouffe blasted Donald Trump today for investigating the president’s birth certificate. Plouffe told Christiane Amanpour on ABC’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour” that questioning the president’s birth certificate gives Trump “zero chance” to becoming president.
Nice try, Plouffe.
The New York Daily News reported on the interview:
Chief advisor David Plouffe unleashed a barrage of stinging comments on Trump, who has recently trafficked in fringe conspiracy theories about Obama’s place of birth while taunting America with hints of a presidential run.
“There is zero chance that Donald Trump would ever be hired by the American people,” Plouffe told ABC’s “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.”
“I saw Donald Trump kind of rising in the polls and given his behavior and spectacle the last couple of weeks, I hope he keeps rising,” Plouffe added.
“There may be a small part of the country that believes these things, but mainstream Americans think it’s a sideshow,” he said. “That’s not leadership, that’s kind of sideshow behavior.”
