I maintain what is called a “jaundiced viewpoint”. I’m cynical, I doubt things until proven by experience to be what they seem to be. I’ve held a doubt in my mind about President Donald Trump until today. Is he who he seems to be?
All our past presidents have kissed the ass of Media. Way before television and radio, when it was just newspapers, the ones with the largest circulation had the biggest political clout and could, and did, make and break politicians regularly. Smart politicians were very nice to newspaper reporters if they wanted to stay in office and get re-elected.
Today I can finally accept that he really is who he seems to be, and the reason why I can is because he continues to attack the Main Stream Media and call them out exactly for what they are, even as he knows full well that they hate him for it and will attack even harder. He has absolutely no fear of them. Yesterday he even called them “The enemy of the American people”, and he’s absolutely right. Today he held a political rally in Florida and attacked the MSM again for their dishonesty.
If this man was a fake, he’d never do this. If he had a hidden agenda that was in any way evil, he’d be all cozy with the MSM, not encouraging them to print ugly stories about him. But he is encouraging them to do this, and in that I find another stroke of his practicality, his genius.
Their stories have been getting more and more far-reaching, the MSM has been literally making up news, Fake News, and it’s steadily becoming less believable in their rage and haste to find weapons to attack him with. Breitbart says: “From Stephen Colbert’s Game of Thrones parody that put White House advisor Stephen Miller’s head on a spike to Conan O’Brien’s Nazi-themed jokes about the President’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, ratings-seeking late-night talk show hosts have apparently gone scorched-earth against President Donald Trump’s administration.” Other MSM have made statements about murdering Pres. Trump and given lots of air time to loons like Madonna, who says she wants to blow up the White House and kill Pres. Trump, and in doing all this, they’re quickly losing their credibility with the American public.
As uninformed and uneducated as the average American is, even the slowest among us knows that rocks can’t talk and trees can’t fly. There’s a limit to what people will believe, and the crazier the stories get from the Leftist MSM, the less people even listen to them. At the same time, Pres. Trump keeps saying over and over and over again that they’re liars and fake news, and people listen to Presidents. The attacks by the media are harming them far worse than they’re harming him. He’s going to win this.
