Trump and America versus Washington

Campaigning in North Carolina on Thursday, Trump said something I and millions of others have observed.

From Trump:
The establishment media doesn’t cover what really matters in this country, or what’s really going on in people’s lives. They will take words of mine out of context and spend a week obsessing over every single syllable, and then pretend to discover some hidden meaning in what I said.
Just imagine for a second if the media spent this energy holding the politicians accountable who got innocent Americans like Kate Steinle killed -- she was gunned down by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times.
Just imagine if the media spent this much time investigating the poverty and joblessness in our inner cities.
Just think about how much different things would be if the media in this country sent their cameras to our border, or to our closing factories, or to our failing schools. Or if the media focused on what dark secrets must be hidden in the 33,000 emails Hillary Clinton deleted.
Instead, every story is told from the perspective of the insiders. It’s the narrative of the people who rigged the system, never the voice of the people it’s been rigged against.
So many people suffering in silence. No cameras, no coverage, no outrage from a media class that seems to get outraged over just about everything else.
So again, it’s not about me. It’s never been about me. It’s about all the people in this country who don’t have a voice.
I am running to be their voice.
I am running to be the voice for every forgotten part of this country that has been waiting and hoping for a better future.
I am glad that I make the powerful a little uncomfortable now and again – including some powerful people in my own party. Because it means I am fighting for real change.
There’s a reason the hedge fund managers, the financial lobbyists, the Wall Street investors, are throwing their money at Hillary Clinton. Because they know she will make sure the system stays rigged in their favor.
It’s the powerful protecting the powerful.
The insiders fighting for the insiders.
I am fighting for you.
You are damned straight he is.

You think they hate us now, just wait till November.

We will take back the federal government -- or at least the White House -- and make the whores pause. Just think, four years when the snobs won't be allowed to pay to play. They'll be lost.

Warren Buffett might actually face competition from the Keystone Pipeline in hauling oil from North Dakota.

The Saudis might actually not be able to buy our latest jet fighter.

Elon Musk may have to live on something other than billion-dollar subsidies.

The Chinese leaders may face an uprising from their slave laborers when they layoffs come because we enforce WTO on them.

Europe might have to raise an army to defend herself.

Mexico might actually have to take care of its own criminals and welfare cases.

The freeloading ends soon, people.

  1. Very succinct, very poignant. If The Donald keeps this up there is no way he can lose. And I understand that today he is in Louisiana surveying flood damage while Obummer golfs. Trump being Presidential? You bet! - Elric

  2. I am glad that I make the powerful a little uncomfortable now and again

    That is the main job of the media but it only does it when Republicans are in office. The media is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Dimocrat Party. Journalism died in this country many many years ago. With the rise of the internet, the people are finally figgering that out.

  3. "make the whores pause"

    Don't know about that, Don.

    You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.
