Trump Was Actually Right On This!

If this guy gets it, what’s your problem?

I am still waiting for Trump to demonstrate even a rudimentary understanding of the office he pursues. To date, we must wait for the completely disassociated translations of his rants to hear what he meant on ANY subject. So when he gets something right, I celebrate!

The loyalty of the left-wing media to BJ Bill and his ethically bankrupt wife defies belief. I have always said there is no creature more pig-headed and obedient than the modern “progressive”. I have to giggle when I use that word because there has not been a clear-minded liberal in real leadership in this country since JFK. He would find “progressives” as narrow-minded and non-progressive as I do.

Since Bill Clinton decided to sexually harass his intern and other women, and then lie about it all under oath, as a sitting president, the media have tripped over themselves to abandon their supposed principles and cover for him.

Before I go any further, let me clarify something. What two consenting adults do in private is none of my business. I am the last person in the world who would call some one out for any type of consensual sex.  Sex, in my book, is never a bad word. It’s awesome!

But that is simply part of my world view. As a matter of law, I am obliged to accept the limitations placed upon us all to live up to a certain level of decorum. For example, when a president has sex with someone, it is only sex. It is none of our business. But when a President breaks the law and has an affair with an intern; when a sitting Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces intentionally pursues an affair his subordinates are routinely punished for; when the primary executive charged with protecting the constitution lies, in court, about sex with said subordinate; when that President exposes himself to blackmail by political opponents and our enemies; then even the most obtuse commentator is obliged, by reason alone, to call that president a criminal.

But not in our media. The policy of most of the American media is to meekly submit to their political betters and carry water for them. And that sick relationship between the press and the Clintons has continued uninterrupted since Bubba announced his candidacy for the Oval Office.

I mention this because the dandies in most media outlets have picked up the talking point assigned to them and declared BJ Bill’s crooked little schledium to be off-limits in this election. We are told Donald Trump crossed “the line” when he brought it up.

The real Hillary

Here’s why Trump was absolutely, undeniably right to call out Mrs. Bill Clinton over her husband’s behavior: She was the enabler who repeatedly allowed for Bill’s low treatment of women over decades. She was the architect of the character assassinations of anyone who spoke the truth about Bubba’s adolescent sexual pursuits. She was the person who attacked women who made rape allegations, thus enabling BJ Bill to go on to abuse more women. Since she lies about all that to this day, she is that same vicious unethical person today as she always was. Hillary Clinton is of a character both undeserving and too dangerously self-absorbed to serve as our representative to the world.

So in calling out the Clintons on Bill’s past, and in some cases, very recent past, Trump is nailing a character issue that is more clearly universal and real than any raised in a campaign in modern times (with the exception of the illegal server). In fact this may be the only thing that will stand between Mrs. BJ and the White House. It is near certain the FBI Director, James Comey has offered the FBI to the Clintons for use as a tool. So the illegal server, for which she should be doing time, isn’t going to stop her.

So perhaps Hillary’s proactive support and encouragement of Bill’s abuses will.

It Is Happening As I Said It Would!

As I have warned countless times here, and in my book last summer, (example here) the press is starting to ratchet up the pressure on Trump; but only a tiny bit. The MSM, who have been carrying Trump since June, are almost 100% certain that he is going to be the nominee. So they feel confident enough to start tenderizing him.

In the last three interviews I’ve heard, the hosts are for the first time, pressing Trump to answer questions. The interview with Chris Matthews is one example. For months, when asked a tough question, Trump would meander through several disjointed thoughts, often falling back on how he built a great company. He kept a battery of stand-by distractors as well; look at my poll numbers, unfair, nice to me and believe me. The questioner might take a second stab at it and meet the same wall of mud. Then it would be on to the next question. But now, they are pressing until they get an answer. Matthews, who has a reputation as a hothead, effortlessly parried Trump’s non-answers until he got what he wanted – a predictably absurd response. They still haven’t opened up with all guns. That will come in July. But they are working their way up to it.

Have no doubt, it will happen. And it will be ugly. Trump has only now started to be challenged. And these first few punches, on abortion, the “arm pulling incident” and nukes, are so general, so basic, he should have been able to swat them away like gnats – and he couldn’t. He is not equipped. If the Donald thinks that having to follow party rules like everyone else is “very unfair”, wait until someone asks him a question about something he didn’t read on Twitter that day – and insists on a coherent answer!

I have been trying my best to warn people about this happening. But the parade marched on, everyone with big grins on their faces. The only times the grins would fade was when critics would point out Trump’s obvious, fatal flaws. Then the drones would attack the messenger, just as Donald does; just as (not too ironically) the Clintons have always done. And the parade moves on again, never challenging, never questioning.

Mark my words, and you’ve been reading it here for months already: If Donald Trump is the Republican nominee, within one week he’ll be interviewed. The interviewer will bring up a boatload of stuff networks have been sitting on since last year! The interviewer, whether it’s Matt Lauer or Megyn Kelly or whoever, will twist the knife and not let up until Trump is left stammering with a confused, angry look on his face. And then it will be over. Worse, it will be pathetically easy to set Trump back on his heels like this, even for the most inexperienced reporter in the business.

Later, he’ll complain that the question was “unfair”, as is every question he can’t answer. He’ll say he was “treated very poorly” as he always does when challenged. But the media that carried him all this time, and for this very reason, will laugh loudly at him. There will be no suggestions that he may have a point, in that odd way Trump may accidentally hit on something. There will be only a bonfire of scorn and editorial ridicule.

Remember John McCain. At the time he was running for the presidency, he was one of the most respected politicians in the country. He was an institution. Remember also, the campaigns were only slightly more civil eight years ago. Throughout the primaries, McCain’s biggest sales lines were his ability to work across the aisle and how much the press loved him. He called it being a “maverick”. The press used the same term and spoke glowingly of him. Then he was nominated. From that day until November, he couldn’t have bought a break from the media for love or money. And his favorable ratings going into the general election towered over what Trump sees now. Shredding Trump in a general election will be child’s play.

These words are not written to diminish Trump’s competencies. Just as Ben Carson was a gifted surgeon, but lacked the wide-ranging understanding a strong executive needs, Trump has his own arsenal of talents. He is better suited for an environment where he demands unstintingly what quarry a marble casino floor comes from, then commits the money to do it. This is where he has always and correctly been driven by personal gain and profit. But he lacks the dispassion and the ability to go beyond self-interest required to be the President of the United States. Such attributes are antithetical to the person of Donald J. Trump. Further, he demonstrates no aptitude for complexity and nuance.

Donald Trump would be a disastrous nominee. First, because he is not the man his followers think he is. But secondly, because no one wants to see the moment I described earlier, whether it is in an interview or a debate. It would not only ensure a Clinton presidency, but it would be pathetic beyond words to witness.

Spare Trump the disgrace. Save the country from Clinton. Vote for somebody else; anybody else.
