14. Yes, yes you can

That is entirely the point right now. Clinton is using a form of political jujitsu that only an amateur would fall for. Trump is not a politician and has had a lifetime of positive results from always going on the attack.

This time though the optics really, really suck and they will just keep getting worse.

The right wing media machine have spent over two decades turning Clinton into some sort of Boogieman/Shiva hybrid that everyone that listens and watches (Fox) instinctively reviles on a basic, lizard brain level.

Trump is rendering that almost inoperative. Before he is finished people that today revile her are going to start seeing her in a sympathetic light.

The core Trump support--the ultra authoritarians will eat up everything he spews. The more normal will find him so repellent that they'll vote for Clinton just to prevent him from ever occupying the Oval office.
