Reason 698 why I support Donald Trump!

Donald Trump Forced CNN to Cover the Victims This Time

by JOEL B. POLLAK31 Aug 2016   Breitbart

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump brought the parents of young Americans killed by illegal aliens onstage with him during his immigration speech in Arizona on Wednesday night — and this time, CNN was forced to cover their stories.

The last time the victims’ families had spoken collectively was onstage at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio in mid-July. On that occasion, CNN cut awayfrom the victims’ stories, turning instead to its usual panel discussion. As a result, voters were denied the opportunity to hear from citizens who have been routinely ignored by both political parties, but whose experiences and concerns are at the core of the seemingly intractable debate about American immigration policies.

This time, Trump incorporated the victims’ families into his speech, bringing them onstage to introduce themselves and talk about their loved ones. As a result, CNN had to cover them — and to seethe: they were ignored by CNN’s panel discussion.
Arguably, these victims are the very reason that Trump exists as a political phenomenon. When few other politicians would listen, he took up their cause, meeting with the families of Jamiel Shaw Jr., Sabine Durden, and others just days after 31-year-old Kate Steinle was murdered by an illegal alien — a serial deportee and felon — in broad daylight on a pier in San Francisco.
On that date — July 10, 2015 — Trump was in 7th place (6.5%) in the polls in the Republican presidential primary, according to the RealClearPolitics averages. Jeb Bush was far ahead in first place (16.3%), followed by Scott Walker (10.5%) in second, Ben Carson (9.8%) in third, Marco Rubio (9.3%) in fourth, Mike Huckabee (7.8%) in fifth, and Rand Paul (7.3%) in sixth.
A week later, Trump was in first place. Not because there are so many victims of murders by illegal aliens — though any number more than zero is too many — but because those victims symbolized broad public frustration with a government that has abandoned its citizens on so many issues fundamental to their welfare, from terrorism to health care to the economy.
Small wonder, then, that CNN continued to drown them out: they are the most potent voices against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, whom the network is not-so-subtly committed to defending. But after being shamed by Breitbart News’ criticism, and outfoxed by Donald Trump’s stagecraft, CNN had to bear witness, however reluctantly.
Whether Trump wins or loses the election in November, his campaign has achieved that much for the victims, and for all Americans.
(This is one of the real reasons why Trump won...not because of what he said about Walker's budget or Jeb's foreign policy or Marco's bathhouse activities. He won because he cares about Americans first....not being invited to Georgetown Cocktail Parties....getting a gig on Fox News....or the good opinion of the scumbag media)

Not unlike how the nets have never shown the footage of people jumping from the Twin Towers on 9/11. I remember Peter "Mr Shedule" Jennings' attitude, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, very terrible, let's cover something else".

And, yes, it's a big reason why I took an interest in Trump.

Good point.

I get too mad to write anything coherent. It's just the price that has to be paid for votes and cheap labor. That's the way, if you could peel open their heads and gaze inside, that's the way the best and brightest think of the murdered. And anyway, they're all deaths that don't count. Flyover deaths. They're not, you know, our kind of people.

Exactly right ric. It is the elitist cunts who look down on regular Americans. This is a class election not an ideology election. It is a new paradigm. The old rules don't really apply no matter how much Karl Rove and David Axelrod might wish it to be so.

Trooper York said...

A worthless piece of shit like Paul Ryan refuses to bring Katie's Law to the Congress. Why? Because he is part of the duopoly and it's constant denigration and abandonment of regular normal Americans.

Remember someone needs to win in November or all this is for naught.

Yesterday was a good day, build on it for November. The next big think the candidate forum (moderated by a guy who was a member of the Clinton Global Initiative). We should be screaming bloody murder like Kitty Genovese going into that event (maybe someone will pay attention). Lauer will be in the bag for the bag otherwise.

Trooper York said...

I hope that Trump doesn't agree. But it is a given that the moderators will be putting their thumbs on the scale.

Did you hear that Jorge Ramos wants to moderate a debate?

I mean I know it is racist to say you don't want a Mexican Judge or a Mexican Moderator. It is racist. Also it is simply common sense.

The Lauer thing could be turned to advantage. If Trump does well against a stacked deck, it's that much more impressive.

Face it, if Frumpty's best advice is make fun of his small hands, she's probably not doing well in the rehearsals.

The victims and the victim's families are just unfortunate "collateral damage" in the Democrat-led (and colluding GOPe) effort to build a more compliant electorate and workforce. This is why CNN could not cover this the first time and resents covering it this time. Do you think NPR and Telemundo covers this all or ever will cover it? Fat chance.

Leland said...

I think Lauer may be an advantage, but not because anyone would think it more impressive if he looked good. That's a bit daft. Undecided that will go to Trump because of a debate will likely know nothing about Lauer's connections to the Clinton Foundation. The advantage is that if Lauer pulls a Crowley; Trump is the one candidate that won't be afraid to bring up Lauer's conflict of interest. And Trump's own knowledge of the inner workings of NBC (he was after all a paid talent for them) might mean he has more dirt on Lauer.

I think it would be great for Trump during the debate to point out the bias of Lauer. What seems to put of Democrats voting for Hillary is her anointment. Sander's supporters said as much, and they turned on him when he obviously took his payout to support her. She improved a bit when the convention ended and there was plenty more kumbaya, but as more news has come out about how she got away with federal crimes because of her privilege to be married to Bill; she's falling in the polls again. If Trump points out how the debates are being tilted for her; and using Lauer is just a bit too obvious and easy; he'll do some real damage to Trump.

I do think Hillary is losing more votes right now than Trump gaining, but the last two days by Trump seem excellent to me, and it won't be until next week that we see if that improves his numbers. I certainly hope it does, because he is doing an excellent job this week.

No, Lauer is a trap. If no one can see that, then you are blind.
