THE ORIGINAL POST:
One complaint over the weekend from pro-lifers was the Women's March got more publicity than the often larger annual March For Life events.
President Trump just changed that.
He made sure the media must cover the event, or look like fools. I suspect he gave Fox News an excuse to carry it live.
Trump equals ratings. Ratings equal coverage. Coverage equals power.
That is the benefit of 40 years of branding his name. And folks, if you read the chapter on Liz Smith in "Trump the Press," you would understand how he did it, and the price he paid when the free publicity over the years turn his and Ivana's into the Divorce of the Century.
He's got a thick hide. He never stopped talking to Liz Smith even when she wrote things he really, really did not want to read.
That's how I know his feuds are largely promotional.
Anyway, he is lending his brand to the March For Life.
From Life Site News:
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters today that President Trump will not ignore the upcoming March for Life in Washington.
“I think it’s no secret that the President has campaigned as a pro-life President. It’s something that is very important to him, as evidence by the Mexico City Policy reinstatement he issued yesterday,” Spicer said.
“Obviously we’re going to have heavy administration presence there,” he added.
The March for Life takes place every year in the nation’s Capitol where hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children peacefully demonstrate against the 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the US. The marchers fight for what organizers call a “world where every human life is valued and protected.”The PC Conservatives at National Review and other Establishment outlets mocked heartland conservatives and evangelical Christians who backed Trump. The view from Washington was Trump was insincere about his pro-life position.
Action speaks louder than words.
Trump brought back the Mexico City Policy. He will back Congress making the Hyde Amendment permanent, will stop paying a half-billion annually to Planned Parenthood, and will sign the 20-week limit on abortions.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment."
