WikiLeaks: Team Hillary Was Terrified of Every GOP Candidate EXCEPT Trump

A new email dump by WikiLeaks reveals that Democratic Party operatives were ecstatic about the thought of the Republican Party nominating Donald Trump. Further, members of Team Hillary were panicking when it looked like the GOP might opt for someone else, like Senator Ted Cruz:

From the email:

Right now I am petrified that Hillary is almost totally dependent on Republicans nominating Trump… she has huge endemic political weaknesses that she would be wise to rectify… even a clown like Ted Cruz would be an even money bet to beat and this scares the hell out of me.

That email was sent to none other than John Podesta, currently the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and formerly Bill Clinton’s chief of staff.

Sadly, Democrats need not have feared. There’s a reason the Republican Party is often referred to as the Stupid Party — they actually succeeded in nominating the lone candidate who cannot beat Hillary.
