Are you kidding me?
Is there anyone in politics less significant than Sarah Pailin? I think not!
Oh I know, there was the, “I am not a witch” lady. And of course there are occasional Michele Bachman sightings. Both of whom have recently appeared as guests with Brooke Baldwin on CNN. And if that isn’t broken news, what is?
But getting input, or an opinion from Sarah Palin about anything other than scaling a carp or buying shotgun shells seems a bit far fetched. I mean really… Defending the Trump against Paul Ryan based on a sound bite or two. It’s safe to assume she didn’t read it in a newspaper. After all, the only thing she’s ever done with a newspaper is wrap up those scales and entrails.
When will Sarah Palin, the “I am not a witch lady”, Michele Bachman and others like them just disappear? They bring nothing to the table. They offer nothing of significance in any way, shape or form. And for that matter, the Trump doesn’t really offer much either. But then again, who better to promote the Trump, than another loose cannon… Bang!
Yes, the Trump is a very different kind of candidate than anyone has ever had to deal with before. As he slithers in the gutter, he attacks his opponents with vile, disgusting accusations, name calling and lies. He lies about the opposition and he lies about things he has “seen’, and “heard”. And to top it all off, his knowledge of the issues is remedial at best.
I can’t remember anyone who has so successfully “worked the press” the way the Trump has. This election cycle is far different than any that I can remember. It is truly a sight to behold. CNN, MSNBC and many of the local networks are Breaking (the) News on an hourly basis by sitting on the edges of their seats as the Trump spouts, talks, insults, threatens and weasels his way towards the GOP convention while the GOP is in a shambles trying to figure out how to out- trump the Trump. Good luck on that.
The Trump: Lots of talk but very few specifics; lots of over-talking, interrupting, “excuse me” snap-backs, always pushing interviewers around; endless derogatory comments about women, Hispanics, and his primary competitors. His attacks on Megyn Kelly in the first GOP debate were both disgusting and absurd. All Ms. Kelly did was question his “documented” comments about women, and all of sudden she is being endlessly attacked by the Trump. That’s his way… Bullying, monopolizing every conversation or interview, name calling and lying about the intended victim. And most of the time it seems to work. Absolutely amazing…
On November 06, 2015, Mary Kate Cary wrote an article about the Trump for US NEWS. In that article – The Master of Manipulation subtitled- The press keeps taking Donald trump’s bait – and all the free coverage is keeping his campaign alive, Ms Cary wrote – “Here’s what Mr. Trump wrote in his 1987 book, “The Art of the Deal:” “One thing I’ve learned about the press is that they’re always hungry for a good story, and the more sensational the better… If you are a little different, or a little outrageous, or if you do things that are bold or controversial, the press is going to write about you.”
The bottom line…
The polls and the pundits are all over the place and there’s still about six months to go until the election. How will we all survive this? I don’t see Trump becoming Presidential during the campaign. Oh he may try from time to time, but what you see is what you get, and there is no pretending by this guy. He expects to be believed, no matter what he says or does. But like Sarah Palin, he doesn’t have much to offer.
As for Hillary… I suggest she stay out of the gutter. No name calling and no trash talking. Just stick to the issues. Because the issues and and the apparent lack of depth of understanding of those issues is where the Trump will falter. He shows it over and over again. And when called on it, he talks his way, away from the original question. Repeatedly, the Trump skates the topics presented to him by the interviewer. If only more of the talking heads would press the question, and then fight to get the answer. And my prediction is that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won’t let him off so easy. I can’t wait…
Peace. I am Bob Danon, and integrity does matter…
