It's like watching a successful attempt at potty training. Who's a good boy! You did it! You managed to hit the toilet rather than the seat of your silk underwear. Have a cookie!

For reasons that are well-known, the media, and the broadcast media in particular, are as deeply invested in the horse race narrative as The Donald is in mob-built real estate. To treat him as the Mussolini-esque toxic buffoon that he is might dampen interest among the amnesiac public in the race and get the public to pay attention to what really matters, which is to say, the Cubs. It's also the case that, as was the case with the Holy Lord God Reagan, Trump is one of the media's own and therefore gets covered less as a politician than as a celebrity. As a politician Hillary Clinton's every word and deed gong back thirty years is treated as if uttered yesterday, hung around her neck like a rotting albatross. But Reagan and Trump, as celebrities, can be reinvented each and every morning because the media sees them first and foremost as actors, and actors say one thing now and another thing later. The media doesn't so much report their policy statements as it reviews their performances. Politicians are tarred; celebrity actors are teflon.

So aptly stated, so true, so depressing.

The Huffington Post may be delightfully trashy, but to their credit, they include a disclaimer at the end of every Trump article:

"Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S."

(The disclaimer even has embedded links to stories supporting the assertions.) If only others could follow suit!

Well, gee, some women have been his personal pets, too.
One testified she was not demeaned, though, after the Elitists tried to use her to smear Trump recently.

Trump never had an orgasm at someone's sodomized slaughter like Clinton did, either. Too bad. She who has also been complicit in the destruction of law and order for millions in a world religion's region. Resulting in millions of loss of lives and limbs, even if to offset the carnage she has invited some victims hereabouts.

Dricey.....oblivious to (non-celebrity?) Hillary's attempted "reinventing" of her own "populist" self.

Cognitive closure, anyone?

Neocons in increasing love with the warmongering- for- Zionism ticket.

Trump, not trusted by the Elite, might do too much for peace, being too self-avowedly centrist on Israeli-Palestine peace talks.

The centrism Carpenterism can't brook.

That's right, Kenny, anyone, anyone at all - Putin, Patrick Buchanan*, Joe McCarthy, Hamas, Hezbollah - are the good guys compared to the Evil Hillary.

Your obsession with the elite, since not PMC nor anyone who posts on his blog even comes close to your own elitism.

*Telling you are aligned with Pat Buchanan on the, ahem, Jewish question. That includes throwing your lot with other Holocaust deniers.
