I do not have time (or the stomach) to follow the appearances and antics of Donald Trump’s surrogates on the various TV talk shows. I see news headlines of this or that surrogate tying themselves up in knots trying to explain away Trump’s statements or poor performance in the debate but I rarely follow up on them because I don’t think they matter. Who cares what surrogates say? Surrogates are useful for filling up the time on the 24/7 cable talk shows but for little else. Does anyone’s choice of who to vote for ever get swayed but what a surrogate says or does?
So I was grateful to Bill Maher for this compilation of some of Trump surrogates’ greatest hits to bring me up to date on the silliness. I was also not aware that Trump had once sued Maher over something ridiculous, but later dropped the lawsuit.
He also discussed Trump’s performance in the debate.
