If I Had To Choose Between Donald Trump and the Kochs,

there is no doubt Trump would be picked every single time. The Koch brothers, or at least Charles, the main ringleader, are all upset because another billionaire not in their league is actually gaining traction among voters.

You would know after reading Sons of Wichita and Dark Money these guys are totally off their rockers batshit crazy. They rail and rail against the "government," but under Obama, they have literally tripled "their" fortunes. I think, however, they are truly threatened by one of their own social class.

Of course, the right has always hated the Rockefellers, the Roosevelts, and the Kennedys because they were all "traitors to their class." They knew that their interests would be served if there was a viable middle class. Trump, despite all of his yammering, is no raving wingnut. He is not a true believer like the brainwashed Kochs and their handmaidens like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, or the gone-and-forgotten Scott Walker.

Pass the popcorn, please:

"They are always very hesitant to get involved in a primary but I think if they were going to do it this would be the time because they just hate the guy,” said a donor who attended the Koch network’s winter retreat, held over the weekend at a luxury resort near the foothills of Palm Springs’s Coachella Valley.

I am sure the feeling is mutual.
