This old tweet from 2016 from David Plouffe, Barack Obama’s campaign manager in 2008 and later a senior advisor to the president, bubbled up to the surface recently and gave some excellent insight into Team Obama and its stance on a Trump presidency.
If you thought that text from FBI agent Peter Strzok about the risk of Donald Trump being elected president and the FBI’s “insurance policy” just in case was a red flag, check out Plouffe’s take from around the same time:
It is not enough to simply beat Trump. He must be destroyed thoroughly. His kind must not rise again.

Gee, Trump must be “destroyed thoroughly” — even if that meant the Obama administration placing a spy inside the Trump campaign (just theoretically speaking, of course).

This tweet now makes perfect sense, in literal terms. I hope there is a day of reckoning for you, too.

Remember this? (H/T @DualFed) By "his kind," he means a self-funding wealthy businessman not beholden to powerful crooks. The Russia probe was a message, not a legit investigation.
That message is: "Don't ever try to take our power and give it back to the American people again." https://t.co/LAB9y1Q5SP

His kind= normal American voters.
You want to "destroy" American people for voting against your team's failed platforms?
Run with this! Good luck in 2020!
