Some of my conservative friends dislike Donald Trump and relentlessly mock him on Twitter. Fine. They have a right. But while I am polite, in the back of my mind I am thinking:
Are these people crazy? They are hopping into bed with the VD-ridden liberal press to get Trump.But I keep that to myself.
As a Carly Fiorina supporter, I can say what is happening: The media is having a nervous breakdown over Donald Trump because he is knocking down every one of their politically correct fairy tales, Having taken down Sarah Palin seven years ago, the media thinks it can break Trump through juvenile mocking of his hair. He has played the New York media for 40 years, and as Old Blue Eyes sang if you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere.
My money is on him. Here's why: He already has reduced them to lying.
Take his call to block the immigration of Muslims "until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."
That resonated with America, and so Ben Kasimar of The Hill falsely reported that Trump would include U.S. citizens who are re-entering the country. He based that on an email from a spokesperson. Kasimar did not disclose what his email said. But increasingly the truth -- in this case, what Trump's actual position is -- does not matter to national reporters. Rather than merely report the news, Kasimar decided to make the news up.
Trump went on ABC and made it clear that what he said was what he sid: Immigrants, not citizens:
"If a person is a Muslim and goes overseas and come back, they can come back. They are a citizen, that is different."We have seen this happen before. When Trump said he would monitor Muslim immigrants, the press reported it as a national registry of Muslim citizens.
This misreporting and deliberate misquoting is part of a smear campaign designed to make him look like a liar.
Despite my great respect for King Abdullah II, I will not be visiting Jordan at this time. This is in response to the false @AP report.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 9, 2015
Maybe it will work, but so far, by making things up, the press hurts its credibility. The boy keeps calling wolf, and the villagers are tuning him out. Many of Trump's supporters were Palin supporters. They know the drill. The fact that he appeals to people without a college degree shows he appeals to people who have not been indoctrinated into the anti-Israel, pro-Muslim dogma of modern educators.
People keep saying that even if Trump wins the nomination, he will not win in the general election. But as I look at the numbers, I see Trump is the only candidate who is ginning up Democrats over 40.
For the present, I am sticking with Carly Fiorina. When the media bite into her, they taste gristle. She would make a good president. But don't kid yourself; so would Trump.
