Wayne Allyn Root Gives Campaign Advice to Donald Trump

WAR

Wayne Allyn Root was the Libertarian Party’s candidate for vice-president in 2008. Since he has since returned to the Republican Party, IPR rarely covers his activites or writings. However, I’ve made an exception here because he is discussing that candidacy.

Advice to Donald Trump From a Fellow Big-Mouthed New York Businessman & Politician

I’m sure the top political consultants and experts in the world are all advising Donald Trump to “tone it down” and “act Presidential” at tonight’s first GOP Presidential debate. They’re telling him not to be a bomb thrower…not to offend anyone…not to be controversial…not to respond to fire with fire. They’re telling him to play down his bigger-than-life personality. I’m sure they want him to play nice…and show his willingness to compromise.

This fellow New Yorker and big-mouthed businessman and politician has a response to that professional advice: Tell them to go to hell!

My advice should matter, simply because I’ve been there before. And my test run (on a much smaller scale) proves all the experts are wrong.

America wants a Bullworth. America wants a politician tells the truth…that tells it like it is…that offends…that isn’t afraid to hurt feelings…who tools the dice…who throws caution and political correctness to the wind. In short Trump is wining because he is the opposite of what the experts want him to become.

Once upon a time, a bombastic, controversial, confident, outspoken, opinionated, tell-it-like-it-is, bigger than life New York businessman ran for President. He was a complete political newcomer and novice. He was an Ivy League educated, but with a cocky New York street fighter attitude. He knew business, the economy and how to create jobs. He despised the socialist policies of Obama and had the chutzpah and audacity to question Obama’s college background. He warned America that Obama would badly damage the economy.

He was also known for his success in the gaming industry and reality television. He had no filter. His personality was that of a bull in a china shop. You might describe him as RELENTLESS. He ran his campaign almost by himself. He wrote his own policies and speeches.

And no one thought he had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning his party’s nomination.

No, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. The guy I’m talking about ran for the Libertarian Presidential nomination in 2008. His name was Wayne Allyn Root. That’s me. And despite no background or name recognition in national politics of any kind… I parlayed all of those Trump-like personality traits into the Libertarian Vice Presidential nomination.

    The “reality TV star” thing was new to me. We looked for him in IMBd, and it says he co-produced an episode of “Ghost Adventures”. I don’t think that qualifies him as a “star”, but YMMV.

    The “reality TV star” thing was new to me.

    He had the cameras follow him around in St. Louis supposedly trying to make a pilot for a TV show. It didn’t get picked up.

    Star?

  3. Andy Craig

    So if I understand correctly, the Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus Advisory Committee and Chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus National Campaign Committee just endorsed Donald Trump.

  4. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    ^^AC, I hope you’re wrong. When I think of “liberty”, I think of about one hundred million BEFORE I think of Trump.

  5. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    Duh, I just got what you’re saying, AC. I went to WAR’s page to see if he was still singing Trump’s praises after last night, and he is indeed. Yeah, he’s Trump’s Mini-me.

    He’s just giving him campaign advice. Besides, Trump was a speaker at Freedom Fest. So was Root. You got a problem with that? Do you? OK. Let’s talk about you now. You got some nerve, talking about The Wayne and The Donald. What makes you such an expert anyway? 🙂

    (see http://reason.com/blog/2015/08/07/donald-trump-post-gop-debate-tweets and read to the end for context)…

  7. paulie

    Finally something that might stop the Trump juggernaut! If Wayne Allan Root cannot torpedo The Donald there is no hope left.

    LOL

  8. LibertarianGirl

    he forgot son of a butcher …..and imo Wayne wishes he was trump…..oh and btw…
    “And no one thought he had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning his party’s nomination.”

    aannnnd he didnt…

  9. paulie

    LG! Missed ya. Give me a call if you can, we’ll catch up. Or message me on FB if that’s easier for you.

    imo Wayne wishes he was trump

    I think that’s been obvious for years, LOL

    “And no one thought he had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning his party’s nomination.”

    aannnnd he didnt…

    Well, he did get nominated VP to “learn from the master, Bob Barr.” Speaking of Barr, which Republican is he backing for the presidential nomination now, anyone know?

  10. Jill Pyeatt Post author

    I can say without hesitation that I do NOT wish to be Donald Trump.

    I also don’t want to be any of the women in his life.

  11. Root's Teeth Are Awesome

    As I’ve said here in the past, Trump is what Root wants to be when he grows up.

    Root: bigger than life

    If Root were bigger than life, he wouldn’t have run for a third party nomination.

    He knew business, the economy and how to create jobs.

    Root ran a sports betting business, which created some minimum wage, boiler room jobs. Meh.

    He … had the chutzpah and audacity to question Obama’s college background.

    Root often intimated (without actually saying) that Obama never went to Columbia. I see he’s still intimating it. But is that something to admire? Was Root ever proven correct about Obama not going to Columbia?

    Were any of the Birthers ever proven correct in their Obama-the-Manchurian-candidate conspiracy theories?

    Nor did it take much “chutzpah and audacity” for Root to make his insinuations. Obama haters are legion. It’s not like Root was saying something that would offend his customer base.

  12. paulie

    Was Root ever proven correct about Obama not going to Columbia?

    No, but Jim Davidson said he remembers Obama from Columbia.

  13. Andy

    Jim Davidson is the only person that I have heard say he remembers Obama from all of the people I’ve heard interviewed from when Obama was supposedly at Columbia.

  14. paulie

    It’s pretty easy to find all sorts of peopel who say they remember Obama at Columbia if you do a search. I only mentioned Jim Davidson because I and a lot of other people here have met him in real life.

  15. Andy

    I have looked into it and lots of people there do not remember him, including those who would have been in the same classes.

    Obama having article in the student paper does not mean he showed up in classes.

    Why are his records sealed? How did he even get enrolled?

    Root is right on this one in that something is very shady about this.

  16. Jeff Davidson

    Hi Andy – What do you mean “Why are his records sealed?” Most such records are sealed. You can’t just call my college and get my transcripts. Does any school you went to give out your records to anyone who asks?

    A secondary question that may become a threadjack, and so I apologize in advance. Whenever some tragic event comes along (9/11, Sandy Hook, etc.) you suggest there is good evidence that it was a false flag operation, just as you suggest a possible conspiracy here. You may be right – that’s not my question. I’m wondering if there are any of those types of events that you do not regard as a likely false flag event. Are any of the various mass casualty types of things that we see too often likely in your opinion to be just what they appear to be?

    Thanks in advance!

  17. Andy

    I never said every event that happens is a false flag.

    Who the fuck is this Jeff Davidson character?

  18. Andy

    Oh, and as for Obama, it has already been exposed that his mom’s family is tied in with the CIA.

    A legend in his own mind.

    Hi Andy –
    I didn’t mean to say that you said every such event was a false flag operation. You do, though, often suggest it, and I asked for examples of some that in your opinion are not. As to who the f*** I am, I’m just a commenter here. I am using my real name more often, but I have posted as wolfefan in the past. I wouldn’t expect you or anyone else here to know me. This comment will probably show me as wolfefan, since I am signed in with my WordPress account.

    I only suggest it when there is evidence that points in that direction.

  22. Robert Capozzi

    a: it has already been exposed that his mom’s family is tied in with the CIA.

    me: Don’t leave us hangin’, Andy. Be more precise, please. Who is her “family”? What does “tied in” mean?

    And most importantly, why is Obama’s mother’s family occupation relevant? Do you mean to imply that Obama is himself in the CIA? That he’s a Manchurian candidate? Something else?

  23. Andy Craig

    “I didn’t mean to say that you said every such event was a false flag operation”

    Your question was perfectly clear the first time, he just doesn’t want to answer it.

    And feel free to comment whenever you like. 😉

  24. Jeff Davidson

    Thanks, Andy C and Paulie. I thought it was pretty clear too, but I try to be polite. I was disappointed he chose not to answer at this time, but he may change his mind.

  25. Robert Capozzi

    ac: [the other Andy] just doesn’t want to answer it.

    me: It’s a pattern, I’ve noted. When pressed on his grandiose statements, A generally deflects or stonewalls.
