Trish Regan: Dems Will Use 'Character Assassination' of Trump as Midterm Strategy
Trish Regan said Thursday that in order for Democratic voters to rally against Congressional Republicans ahead of the midterm elections, they'll need to conduct a "character assassination" toward President Trump's personal life.
The Fox Business Network host said on "Outnumbered" that while there may not be much to go after Trump on in terms of policy, making an issue of his alleged affairs could be a useful tactic.
"If I'm a Democratic strategist, I'd be thinking about this: how do I rally my troops? How do I rally the base? Unfortunately, the best way [Democrats have] ... is to have a character assassination," she said.
According to a report by The Hill, while some Democrats are cautious, others are eager to attack Trump over his alleged affairs with Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, saying he's more vulnerable now to attacks during the "Me Too" movement.
A recently released poll "found that 56 percent of registered voters believe Trump had an affair with Daniels — but almost half said it doesn’t change their view of the president," as reported by The Hill.
"I think whether you're calling [Trump] a sexist, a misogynist, a racist, any of these things, no one wants that kind of person in the Oval Office," Regan said.
"I think if you want to mobilize the left, the base out there, you're not going to be able to do it on policy so you do it on character," she added.
