The latest cacophony making its way through the sound of crickets:
Since business whiz Donald Trump has got them on the run, spilling their cafe lattes all over their Brooks Brother shirts while they’re at it, mainstream media shills are yelling, “Don’t Trump me, Bro!”
It’s gotta be the first time in, lo, the last seven long years that a one-man stampede has gone after what used to be the Fourth Estate.
Following closely in the footsteps of the current administration making life miserable for the masses, the media see a racist behind every tree.
Some people blow whistles. Donald Trump blows a loud trumpet and what a donnybrook he’s creating just by stating the truth.
While out there making real history on the campaign hustings, Donald Trump is writing the definitive how-to book called ‘Dealing with the Media for Dummies’.
Not backing off from the media/political blowback, that refreshing rascal The Donald will have coaxed conservatives to come back out of hiding from poison-pen media sharks before the Presidential 2016 campaign is over.
It starts by being on guard for the key words the mainstream media always uses to bring conservatives down: “racist”, “homophobe”, “bigot” and “bible thumper” are the main ones.
Trump, is his own ‘Thumper’ and proved it when he revealed Lindsey Graham’s private phone number to a South Carolina campaign audience. (Bet the media were the last to make use of it!)
The media has made chump feed of conservatives ever since Obama came to power and now The Donald is making a sport of turning the tables on them.
Some dummies, like Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, who apologized for saying that “all lives matter” can’t be saved from dummy-hood—even by ‘DTT’ (Donald Trumps Them’).
According to #blacklivesmatter and media clowns, claiming “all lives matter” is racist. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it, true or false.
Not since Professor Henry Higgins fundamentally transformed that delightful waif Eliza Doolittle has anyone had such fun with lexicon. Here’s hoping that after Trump the ‘reign in Spain’ might never be the same.
“Let me tell you. The people don’t trust you and the people don’t trust the media. And I understand why,” Trump lectured CNN’s Anderson Cooper during Wednesday’s interview. (RealClearPolitics, July 22, 2015)
??“Trump also said the American dream is “dead,” but he will revive it and “make it bigger, better and stronger than ever before.”
“You know I tell the story, the American dream—I talk about the American dream in speeches,” Trump said. “The American dream is dead but I’m going to make it bigger, better and stronger than ever before. The American dream is dead. But I’m going to make it bigger, stronger. Right. And I go ‘boom!’ and I do it with great bravado and the audience goes crazy. “
In their bid to shut him down media meisters can count on the help of the Republican brass who are getting downright antsy now that their boy Jeb is barely mentioned since Trump threw his hat into the presidential primaries.
Nor is much being heard from any of the other 16 contenders, most sorrowfully nothing in the mainstream media about Ted Cruz; and only once in a while smoke signals from Marco Rubio when he’s having one of his Trump tantrums.
Some say that Trump is part of some diabolical scheme hatched by Hillary Clinton to hog all the hustings publicity and to set the many GOP hopefuls at each other’s throats. Even Rush Limbaugh said he had heard of this theory on Thursday’s radio show.
But count on one thing for sure: Donald Trump is exceedingly popular with folks fed up with the hypocrisy and deceit of D.C. politics.
And that’s no conspiracy!
