Trump May Start a TV Network

Trump May Start a TV Network

https://politicalwire.com/2016/06/16/trump-may-start-a-tv-network/

"SNIP.............


Vanity Fair: “Trump is indeed considering creating his own media business, built on the audience that has supported him thus far in his bid to become the next president of the United States. According to several people briefed on the discussions, the presumptive Republican nominee is examining the opportunity presented by the ‘audience’ currently supporting him. He has also discussed the possibility of launching a ‘mini-media conglomerate’ outside of his existing TV-production business, Trump Productions LLC.”

“He has, according to one of these people, enlisted the consultation of his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who owns the The New York Observer. Trump’s rationale, according to this person, is that, ‘win or lose, we are onto something here. We’ve triggered a base of the population that hasn’t had a voice in a long time.'”

9. You think he would have waited until he lost- Wait, maybe he is a business genius...

 

This was his plan all along!

Free media attention for a year then launch his own channel, he doesn't care about White House!

16. Exactly my question. aaaand Wili has the answer

On July 4, 2015, Sarah Palin announced that she would shut the channel down in its current incarnation.
She said the channel will continue to create content and post videos on Facebook and her PAC site starting August 1, 2015
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Palin_Channel

but, get this:


Sarah Palin Developing Her Own Judge Judy-Style Reality Show

The onetime vice presidential candidate has been tapped to preside over a planned reality court show that would premiere next year, if it gets picked up by stations. She signed a deal in February with Montana-based production company Warm Springs, a source close to the process tells PEOPLE.

"It's a production deal," the source explains. "What happens next is she'll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it."

Unlike the two famous TV judges, Palin does not have a juris doctor degree. But the source notes that the bestselling author has a variety of other qualities that make her perfectly suited to the job.

"Palin's telegenic personality, wide appeal and common sense wisdom make her a natural for this kind of format and she was Warm Springs' top pick for this project."

Common sense wisdom??????????????

What he is really saying is he knows there are enough mouth breathing knuckle draggers in this country to tune in.

28. So this run for President is nothing more than to position him to create another business.

What little money he has spent is seed money for a media business, and has no intention of winning.

That actually makes sense.

45. Paul Ryan, that's the plan.

The ever so reluctant speaker, ok I'll do it if you really want me to. His endorsement, and rejection later is a setup to once again make him the ok if you really insist I will run candidate.

Lets face it the 16 dwarves are considered losers and the previous presidential candidates are pretty damaged. If anything happens to remove tRump expect Ryan to be the reluctant nominee.
