It's dawning on them that this is a referendum on Trump

For the past year, Donald Trump has brushed the most media-savvy president in history aside and dominated the news. When a terrorist kills or attempts to kill, my Twitter fed lights up with media types commenting on Trump's chances and Trump's statement. Never Hillary. Never Obama.

In the public's eyes, Trump is the only national leader. The only question is whether he gets the top job.

I have called this race a referendum on Trump all along. It's his race to lose. He may. I doubt it.

The press may at last be catching on. Matt Bai filed a column, "Like everything else, the debates are all about Trump."

Matt Bai sees that as a problem for Trump. Yes, just like John Elway having the ball in the final two minutes of a game at Mile High.

From Matt Bai:
Rather than play along with Trump’s “Dancing With the Stars” kind of campaign, Clinton has largely receded to the shadows offstage, content to watch while Trump gyrates and boogies himself into all kind of grotesque poses, alternately amusing and reviling much of the viewing audience.
And so, improbably, the election is now a referendum on him. Clinton’s support is probably inelastic at this point; assuming she slogs cautiously through the debates in her admirable if uninspiring way, she can do little to change the minds of those who already know how they feel about her, which is pretty much everyone.
Whether that’s enough to deliver her the White House is almost entirely a question of whether Trump can yet persuade some segment of disenchanted, moderate voters that he meets the very lowest threshold for a plausible president — someone who won’t destroy the world, at a minimum, and who might not embarrass them every day of the week for the next four years if they get really lucky.
It's an interesting rant that shows just how childish and unimaginative pundits in Washington are. Trump will lead to a nuclear war.

Where have I heard that before?

Oh yes, they said that about Reagan 36 years ago.

My new book, "Trump the Press," is a fun read that details how the experts missed the rise of Trump. Remember how they said Trump was just running to help Hillary? Read the reviews in the right column.

  1. Harry Reid is ginning up a fake controversy against Trump the way he did against Mitt Romney four years ago, this time calling on the FBI to investigate Trump's "Russian connections." Reid's launched this desperate and despicable October Surprise in a last minute effort to save a drowning Hillary.

    1. I thought the 80s wanted their foreign policy back.

      It's a very dry hole.

  2. All Trump has to do on Monday is appear reasonable and presidential, a rather low bar. Hacking Hillary has to keep from coughing or passing out. She's putting Mark Cuban in the front row. Trump sez he may counter with Gennifer Flowers. He should add Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky. What will happen if Crooked Cankles has a brain freeze? Will the big black dude be allowed to come on stage to coax her out of it?

    1. Exactly.

      Just like Reagan in '80. Be himself and he'll be fine.

  3. Fixed the below comment:
    --Obama-- can yet persuade some segment of disenchanted, moderate voters that he meets the very lowest threshold for a plausible president — someone who won’t destroy the world, at a minimum, and who might not embarrass them every day of the week for the next four years if they get really lucky.

  4. My reading on Trump is:

    1) He assumes you're competent until you prove otherwise.

    2) He does not tolerate fools gladly.

    3) He does not sell his own people down the river, on the contrary, he backs them to the hilt.

    And yet, the supporters of Clinton in the media and elsewhere will look at those qualities and go, "Loooooser!"

    When it comes to said Leftard media, I trust that President Trump's motto in office will be, "If you see a head, kick it".

    1. Clinton wants to be President Rerun, but she's shaping up more like Pigpen.

    1. He knows how to make a buck. He stands by his people. He doesn't take **** from anyone.

      How more reasonable, how more DAMM DOWNRIGHT AMERICAN can you get?

      I know I'LL sleep better knowing that a non-psycho is finally minding the store after all these years.

      I can't help but think that the next few weeks may finally see a line drawn under the Sixties Psychosis that is the American Left. That a Trump Presidency, and a rising generation, might just combine to sweep away a Libertine Left and a Rudderless Right.

      Am I alone in longing for a new dawn of freedom? I think not.
