Nah, we now know that the Trump team, headed by Jared Kushner (when Putin wanted to buy a U.S. president, he went to Jared), knew exactly what to do and formulated a plan early. They did not “miss” the ball, they booted it intentionally; they took a dive; they threw the games to an extent that would shame even the Chicago Black Sox of 1919.
But when Jared learned that it was the blue states being hit the hardest in those early days, he decided to sacrifice the states that would never vote for Trump and then blame it on the Democratic governors.
Now that it is hitting the red states and has backfired, once again Jared turns out to be less brilliant than advertised.
