With every comment, Republican front runner and billionaire Donald Trump makes, it seems everyone loses their collective minds. The most recent insane comment was calling for all Muslims to be banned from entering the country.
As my favorite lady in radio retirement Randi Rhodes would say, “Garbage in, Garbage out.”
No one, and I mean NO ONE in the media has called “The Donald” out for anything he’s said in the 5 months since he’s made his announcement to run for president. From his ridiculous allegations on Hispanics, blacks, gays, women and now Muslims, the media follows him like a 4 year old who gets worried and starts to cry if they lose their mother in a shooping mall. And if there’s one ounce of dissent, they’re so worried that they’ll lose all access to him.
The one thing I’ve known in my 20+ years of being in the media is that you go where the money is. Corporate suits have been doing this for many, many years. When the money dries up, everyone goes to the next big thing. Trump is that, “next big thing” and with today’s insane rant, its pretty clear the gravy train is about to stop at Grand Central and drop him off at his tower, not 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Never lose sight of the target.
Republicans only make up 37% percent of the electorate, and out of that, the last time I heard, 25% percent favor Trump for president. Do the math. That’s only 10% of Americans, people! Not much of an electorate measure upon. Progressives are terrified of Trump actually winning the nomination.
All I can say is, “Chill the fuck out!” He’s not going anywhere near the White House, except by invitation only.
In the meantime, take a page from my book and stop watching the news from corporate-owned media on TV. This shit is making your brains soft. Rely on sources, like BBC, CBC, al-Jazeera or The Young Turks. That way, everyone won’t be so fucking stressed out!
Television’s a goddamned amusement park, and Donald Trump is taking everyone for a ride…all the way to the bank!
