"Who lost Wisconsin?" Trump could hand the blame to you know who.

If Trump and his team are shouting "Who lost Wisconsin" while taking rage laps around the West Wing, they might at least second-guess the decision to install defeated ex-Governor and Foxconn co-bumbler Scott Walker as the Wisconsin Trump 2020 co-chair. 

Do you really turn over the President's statewide re-election bid to a Republican incumbent in that state

who'd just just lost his own re-election bid by a few thousand votes out of millions?

Do you really pin your hopes on strategery overseen by the same politician who'd said "the eagle has landed" when Foxconn made its crash-landing in Mt. Pleasant.

Or who blew through millions of dollars in a 71-day backflip out of the GOP's 2016 presidential race before a single vote for a single caucus delegate had been cast in Iowa?
Walker's campaign reported raising $7.4 million but spent almost as much during the 71 days he was in the race, one of the shortest presidential campaigns in modern history.
Spending, especially salaries on a staff that ballooned to 90 people, doomed the Walker campaign. The filing shows that several top staffers, including Walker's campaign manager, a spokeswoman, and operations director, had more than $200,000 a year salaries.
The answer to "Who lost Wisconsin?," or any election, is ultimately "the losing candidate," but since Trump is famous for never taking responsibility for anything, I wonder why it's taking him so long to throw shade at the convenient scapegoat who'd been right with him
