Obama Adviser: Trump Has “Zero Chance”


trump1Pres. Obama’s senior adviser David Plouffe made the Sunday morning show rounds, saying this and that and even had this dig about Fox News viewers while on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace.

During his “This Week” appearance Christiane Amanpour asked Plouffe about Donald Trumpā€˜s chances at winning the White House.

“There is zero chance that Donald Trump would ever be hired by the American people to do this job,” says Plouffe. “I saw Donald Trump kind of rising in some polls and given his behavior and spectacle the last couple of weeks, I hope he keeps on rising.”

Plouffe’s comments come after Trump’s back-and-forth with The New York Times columnist Gail Colllins and his appearances on “Today” earlier in the week which were later fact-checked by NBC News.

  1. I would think he has a far better chance than Obama if he were to run. He would definitely get my vote quicker than obama.I think that he would be good for Israel as well.

  2. Since Obama is a Grade-A liar, schemer, conniver, manipulator – this is a good thing he said Trump has zero chance.

  3. If he wruns I’d say he has at least a 50% chance. he has so much money and can just use his television show for campaiging because of the first amendment they can’t stop him according to the Supreme Court and lots of people watch that. But really I’m hoping Mrs. Palin runs and picks a real conservative as her running mate.

  4. I agree its presumptive to say that someone “doesn’t have a chance”. That said, Mr. Trump has a lot of charisma, but NO CHARM. So I don’t think he will secure that many votes in a run off against Mr. Obama who has all the bases covered.
