(Jake Novak, CNBC) It’s the eve of the wedding. Family and close friends are gathering for the big rehearsal dinner. Things are going well, but then your rich, quirky aunt stands up and declares she is opposed to the wedding, won’t be coming to the ceremony and you can forget about getting a gift. Of course, the wedding goes on as planned and nobody really misses that aunt as it’s clear to everyone she embarrassingly overplayed her hand.
Think about it, when someone like former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson endorses Hillary Clinton or an Upper West Side billionaire Republican like Paul Singer warns of an economic apocalypse if Trump wins, that just helps Trump’s assertion that he’s fighting Wall Street and the rest of the establishment with a campaign for real change.
