The news went from Hillary crushing Trump, to nothing but Trump in the past four days.

Free TV time and nothing but Trump this and Trump that. Regardless of how sickening what he is saying, he is still all over the airwaves. Refusing to back Ryan and McCain, more TV time. Trump is playing the US media like a reality TV show and keeping all eyes and ears on him. Every time Hillary starts smashing him, he does something even more outrageous. Hie campaign advisers starting to panic? Nonsense, just as scripted. Manafort? nonsense, just as scripted. Trump is playing the American public because he knows that we have a very, very short memory. Just like a TV reality show, it is all scripted.

Remember how it went with Kerry in '04? Every time he would score, the Bush administration would announce an eminent terrorist attack on the US. After the DNC convention; after Kerry walloped him in the first debate. Trump is using the same script.

2. Is he? Is he really? Aren't his supporters getting louder? Aren't his supporters donating more?

 

CNN had nothing but Trump stuff for 30 minutes solid early yesterday evening.

7. Since when does LOUDNESS

 

equal votes? The Tundra Twit had large gatherings, got plenty of people to empty their wallets - so fucking what? Would you rather the media NOT report the fiasco that is occurring in the gop? Or reporting on how many republicans are not voting for comrade donnie? Or all the times he's stepping on his dick? The fight now is for independents and it looks like don the con's idiocy is turning them off in droves.

5. That's great

More chances for him to piss off even more people, especially in his own party.

Meanwhile, Hillary's numbers rise in the shadows.

9. He has been exposed as a fraud

The more exposure he is given the deeper the hole he digs.
Hillary is right to take her campaign right to the people. She is affect her turnout where it matters most.

10. I don't mind so much that they're not talking about her

Because every freaking time there's a positive story about a policy she's touting or a number she's reached or an endorsement she's received there's ALWAYS the "but" ....but her unfavorables, but her husband, but the emails...

Let em talk about Trump all they want.
