Tuesday following presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s speech, which touted his forthcoming speech about the indiscretions of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, CNN host Michael Smerconish expressed his shock over the direction Trump chose to take, but added that Breitbart editor at large Peter Schweizer’s book “Clinton Cash” was being set up as the playbook for the fall.
“The teleprompter suggested to me this was going to be a controlled speech and his mannerism were very controlled,” Smerconish said. “But this was incendiary the sort of things that he was saying and that kind of surprised me. I also think that it was lacking in vision. You would think that this occasion we’re spending a lot of time talking about the significance of Secretary Clinton becoming the presumptive nominee but nevertheless, he’s reached a milestone and I thought that perhaps this was the big picture evening. That wasn’t the way that he played it. It was instead setting up what will be the Peter Schweizer book “Clinton Cash” as the playbook for the fall.”
