Trump RNC Convention

Trump’s Speech Wasn’t ‘Dark’ or ‘Angry.’ The Media Is Out of Touch.

Either the mainstream press doesn’t get Donald J. Trump—or its poison pens are simply out to get him. Exhibit A is last week’s dour coverage of one of the most electrifying presidential nomination acceptance speeches in the last thirty years.

  • Martin B

    The poison pens were out to get Reagan too, and they failed. Twice.

    • Alain

      They have had a lot of years to perfect their strategy and they are mostly all in lock-step.

    • Clausewitz

      Telling the truth pisses off the MSM to no end.

      • Obviously, those who vote, do not care what the MSM says. Otherwise Trump would not be the republican nominee.

        • Clausewitz

          Yeah but Trump is the exception, not the norm.

    “or its poison pens are simply out to get him”
    It’s both.

    These people are completely lost in their own narcissism, arrogance, self importance and elitism. They are insulated from anybody who actually has or had a job where results counted on a day to day basis.

    Donald Trump is a business man so results have always counted with him.

    -Did you bring the project in under budget and ahead of schedule?
    -Did your initiative achieve the results you promised?
    -Are the books in the black or red?
    -Can I see for myself, without your explanation, what you have accomplished today?

    “News” people, especially opinion givers like newspaper columnists and TV “comedians” like Jon Stewart hate guys like Trump because their own job is to “create”, to bestow their wisdom upon the masses who are obviously in need of enlightenment. “Results? Oh please! Results are for peasants!”

    In the REAL world Guys like Trump are successful in ways that everyone can see.
    In the imaginary world of the poison pen smear artist you achieve success by convincing others you are a big deal even if you’ve done nothing to prove it.

      One thing not mentioned about Trump’s success as a businessman but should be emphasized is that his enterprises are closely held by him and his family and are therefore not directly subject to the whims of Wall Street. He owes nothing to stockholding and bondholding strangers.

  • Hard Little Machine

    If Trump said “Good morning” the Democrats would scream he’s an anti afternoon-ist

      At least we know that no matter what time of day it is somewhere on the planet it is beer o’clock.
