Trump slump hits Democrats



Axios reported, "'Trump slump.' hits big media." I predicted this in 2017.

Most of the media has spent the first 2-plus years of his presidency harassing the man. They tried to demonize the President of the United States, Donald John Trump. They blamed him for everything.



Communist (and Hillary's inspiration) Saul D. Alinsky wrote his "Rules for Radicals" book in 1971.

Number 5 was "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon."



From Saturday Night Live to CNN, they have mocked our president -- often misquoting him or taking his words out of context. Whatever a Democrat says he said in private is taken as gospel, while the media ignores his denials.

They kept it up, employing Rule Number 6: "A good tactic is one your people enjoy."



Ratings were up. This somehow was proof that Donald Trump was a failure as president because the 48% who voted for Hillary were still angry at him.

There was no nit to pick that was too small.



They bet everything they had on the Mueller Report. Surely his closest advisers and family members would be indicted. Maybe he would be, too.

Impeachment was just around the corner.

But then the report came out and it was the Nothingburger the president and his supporters said it was.



House Democrats lost their appetite for his destruction.

Viewers are bored by Trump bashing.

That 48% who voted for Hillary are tired of losing. They have yet to score anything. They no longer believe they can defeat him, and the media has to report on something else. This explains why the false claims of "rape" this weekend got so little play.

You see, the media relied too much on Rules 5 and 6. They overlooked Alinsky's Rule 7: "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag."

What a drag it is and it's getting old.

  4. No need to misquote. What the media needs to cover are his quotes. He claims not to rape people who aren't "my type". This is from the supposed 'playboy' who has to pay for sex.

      My skin's all pasty & white
      And no one gives a crap about the things that I say.

      Here comes another lament

    3. Ok, how about "I Am My Own Grandpa" by Ray Stevens
      but substitute "worst enemy" or "idiot" for Grandpa, that tells the story too.

  5. the round of horror of two scoops illuminated some differences. I remember when the scribes went after bush 1 for not eating broccoli. and bush 1 said I don't like broccoli. and being potus I don't have to eat what I don't like.
    and most of America laughed and said ok he's right.
    but then the pearl clutchers gasped in horror.
    and bush 1 weaseled...
    but Barbara loves it. she eats a ton of it.
    that's the difference. trump doesn't weasel to the juvenile delinquents who mask themselves as journalists.
    really, just the normal run of press-titutes.

  6. Meanwhile out in Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar very likely committed marriage and immigration fraud and almost certainly committed tax fraud for several years and the media can't seem to find the time to cover THAT story.

  8. I think the side effect these birds don't comprehend is how it reminds many of us how they slimed Kavanaugh with the same garbage and the slimer got away scot free without any repercussions. I think that is a loser for the dems but they don't understand that.

  9. Waterman, I hope the "press" conference is dead and buried.
