More Mass Media Attacks Trump ----- The Greater Is His Appeal
The Republican Party is having another melt down as the Republican establishment can't seem to get rid of Donald Trump. For some reason many middle class folks have just decided oh hell with it all and let's just get away from the career politicians and let's put someone else in charge.
Both parties are in the pockets of special interest groups and both parties have made it their mission to make the term of a President not in their party a very miserable affair. (Obama is the most obvious victim example of Congressional tomfoolery.)
Many in the news media seem to discredit Trump's candidacy but is he really the worst thing to happen in American politics? Or will there be an equally bad scenario if Americans elect either a Bush or Clinton to the White House?
Pundits have apparently decided that the Bushes or Clintons are some sort of royalty entitled and qualified to hold the highest office in the land. (At one time the Kennedys were viewed to be the American royal family until everyone learned that they were probably one of the most dysfunctional group of misfits in the country.)
Trump apparently has not earned the respect afforded to the Bushes or Clintons by both progressive and conservative pundits to be taken as a serious candidate. He is viewed as just a flash in the pants who will be a mere a political footnote in American history.
In reality, is Trump really less fit to be President than some of the the other politicians who hope to be POTUS?
The mass media (MSNBC and NBC in particular) portray Trump as some sort of crack pot. Trump might very well be a demagouge crackpot, however, Americans will not know until we hear specifics on some particular issues and his ways to solve some problems.
The more the media attacks him----the greater is Trump's appeal.
