What if Trump was just trying to Punk the Republican party?

See link where a fellow goes into great detail:

I'm starting to think that Donald Trump's candidacy isn't real and he's actually shooting a secret Borat-esque reality TV show just to punk the Republican party. I bet the first creative meeting went something like this...

INT. EXECUTIVE CONFERENCE ROOM - DAY

A number of NETWORK TV EXECUTIVES sit around a large conference table listening to Donald Trump.

TRUMP: I have an idea for a new reality TV show and it's going to be 'UUUGE! It's going to be the best show ever done in the history of TV by anyone, anywhere. You ready for this?

The TV execs all wait with bated breath.

TRUMP: I'm gonna run for President.
NETWORK PRESIDENT: President of what?
TRUMP: The United States.

Everyone laughs, until they see Trump's dead serious.

TRUMP: Republicans keep saying they're looking for the next Ronald Reagan, but Reagan raised taxes 11 times, he granted amnesty to 3.2 million in1986, and he supported the Brady Bill. So I'm gonna run for President of the United States as a Republican as a joke just to prove they're not looking for the next Reagan because the party's been taken over by the right wing crazies. And I know crazy. I worked with Gary Busey for 11 episodes.

Nods and general enthusiasm fill the room.

NETWORK PRESIDENT: Tell us more.
TRUMP: So, in the opening episode, I'm gonna declare my candidacy in front of a group of average citizens that I've paid to be there. During my speech, I'm gonna call all Mexicans rapists and criminals.
NETWORK PRESIDENT: Let me stop you right there, Donald. That's too much too soon. You'll be out of the race before we even shoot the first 10 minutes of the pilot.
TRUMP: You're wrong. I'll go right to the top of the polls. Then I'll end the first episode by mocking a female candidate's looks--

3. I have thought from the beginning

Trump's candidacy was/is orchestrated with every tweet and soundbite he has in him ,being directed.

4. A corollary to that theory would be that Bill Clinton put him up to it

Ive seen speculation here to that effect but I tend not to believe it because if it ever came out, I think it would spell the end of Trump and the Clintons as serious players on the American political scene. And it would taint whatever legacy Clinton might think he still has, as well as end Hillary's chances of ever becoming president. Trump too, but he probably wouldn't care.

Whether Clinton is involved or not, I think there is a chance that Trump will pull the plug on his candidacy before actually getting nominated. What'll be fun then is the reaction of the lunatic fringe that has glommed onto him as the guy who will save Amurka from people of the darker coloration.

5. "...if it ever came out"

 

It has already come out, and been reported on. It's a bit more than mere "speculation"

6. I've seen those accounts as well, but why haven't any of Trump's republican opponents jumped on it?

Seems to me the way to kill any chance Trump has of securing the republican nomination, would be to accuse him of being in bed with the Clintons in order to guarantee her election.

Is Clinton devious enough to believe he could get away with something like this? You bet. Is Trump egotistical enough to fall for it? Absolutely.

So where's the outrage from Cruz, Rubio, Jeb, and the rest of the peanut gallery?

7. Cruz, Rubio and Jeb don't know how to think "out of the box." I think there is a yuuuuge bet and I

wouldn't doubt it's in the million dollarS area. Bill is pretty sure of himself and she thinks she is inevitable so ..there ya go...

8. "where's the outrage?" Good question.

 

I think partly it's because Clintons & Trump have circled their wagons, and both now flatly
deny anything ever happened. The old "nothing to see here" ploy.

9. It doesn't matter what motives he has. He's bringing hate-speech into the political mainstream

and energizing the white supremacists. There's not a happy outcome in sight here,

10. Plus he has been a Teabagger birther since way back sending investigation teams to Hawaii on

his own dime to prove Obama was not born in the US
All these posts are seriously in denial of the hate he brings forward and want to brush it off as some kind of lark . They probably post before going unicorn hunting for rainbow kisses
