Trump Triumphs With Media Help

Why is anyone surprised that Trump is so far ahead of the other Republicans in the polls?  The idiots who make up the National Media, on all of the networks, seems astonished, even though every last one of them is enabling him every minute of every day.  And, which network has made more mention of him than any of the others?  Right. MSNBC.

One theory is that the pundits on MSNBC want the campaign to come down to Trump vs Hillary, so they are reporting every horrible thing he says, so people will realize that they can't have him as our President.

I don't agree.  I think Trump has been such a media darling for so many years, the network folks have completely lost sight of what they are actually doing.  Either that, or they really want to get him elected, just because President Trump would be endlessly entertaining.  Nothing boring to report with a Trump presidency.

But I can think of two very compelling reasons why we can't let the Republicans take over all three branches of our government.  The first is the number of Federal judgeships that the Republicans have been stonewalling while Obama has been President.  The second is that, in all probability, there will be at least two openings on the Supreme Court during the next eight years.

The Republicans can do great harm in this country, without any checks and balances to keep them honest. You can see how bad things have been with both the House and the Senate in Republican hands. Think what they'll be able to do without fear of a Presidential Veto?  Good-bye Social Security, good-bye Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare, for starters. And, so much more.

It just doesn't bear contemplating.

Stay tuned.

I don't think those checks and balances are working to well. I do agree that Trump would be a disaster as a president. And not just because he is a Republican!

After all the nonsense he spouted about the UK recently, people over here are demanding that he be banned from ever visiting this country again. Could be a problem for a future President? Mind you, he would fit in well with some of our idiot politicians.
