I was going to start my own thread on this, but this one will do fine.
Let's do a simulation.
Let's pretend Donald Trump "Really Is" a shill for Hillary. Just for the sake of disproving the idea. Let's imagine he is going to throw the election. Fine. First question is: "How would 'Ringer'' Donald look different from what we have now?
-Any centrist republican could beat Hillary, with her astronomical negatives. So the Ringer needs to take out every centrist in the republican primary.
-Any republican candidate with more than 2 terms in the senate as experience has a better resume; so the Ringer has to have absolutely zero experience. That way he can run against Hillary AND all the republicans on the same platform.
-The "woman card" is Hillary's main claim to the oval office; so we need a Ringer with a clearly sexist past. RECENT past, too. Not that he puts down Hillary herself, but he has to knock a female republican...
-He needs to not be a "favorite son", He cannot be a southerner or a red-stater, because too many southerners would support him for regional reasons. He needs to be some kind of yankee.
-Since the two parties are basically 50/50, he needs to alienate a big chunk of the republican party. He can do this by being whatever embarrasses them most---say, a right wing christian. But obviously not a "real" christian, who the evangelicals might support. Make him someone with a lifestyle they reject. Someone who runs a liquor business. Or gambling or something.
-if he accidentally does take the lead, have him spend precious days stumping in states where he has no chance and who have few electoral votes in any case. He should tour... Maine. Or New Hampshire. Or Michigan in inner city detroit or something.
-Do something big, to piss off minorites, driving them into Hillary's camp. Then spend tons of energy reaching out to them. Spend a lot of time on Mexicans, but the ones still in mexico! Or on inner city youths, who won't even vote. etc.
-Generate a scandal for every one of Hillary's. If they question her health, he should be seen sick on camera...
You get the idea.
How has the Donald done anything different from what Hillary would want from a Ringer?????

Pulp Fiction is one of my all time favourite movies...but forgive me if I don't get the analogy of Ving Rhames as Hillary and Bruce Willis as Trump. At the the end of Pulp Fiction they part ' all square ' as Ving Rhames puts it. While Bruce Willis's character has absolutely failed to 'take a dive' in the boxing match and cost Ving Rhames a whole heap of $$$, following Rhames hunting Willis down and the chase into the XXX store, the 'gimp' is brought out ( much to Rhames's misfortune ) Willis then is the only witness to Rhames's shame. So they part ways with the slate clean.
One XXX store owner, one gimp and of course Zed's dead baby...Zed's dead.
So will Hillary then wipe the slate clean even if Trump fails to ' throw ' the match....because Trump has some mud in reserve that he hasn't thrown at Hillary yet? If it was a true Pulp Fiction ending...Trump would win, just as Willis did in the movie. But even after he did...Hillary wouldn't 'get his ass' if he had double crossed her. Willis didn't get got by Rhames's. Bring out the gimp!
Does either of the candidates keep a gimp for the purpose of getting even should they be double crossed ? hmm mm Wouldn't surprise me. The whole race has been a circus of horrors.
Apologies..I really love that movie. I don't even want to associate it with these two clown candidates.
