Trump Speaks, Media Translates


#1

It isn’t that Donald Trump does not say things that are cringe-worthy. It’s that his opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, says and does things even more cringe-worthy. So forgive those who feel that Trump’s supposedly “outrageous” statements are nothing more than selective outrage, double standards, and the typical “Republicans are racist” meme. Democrats routinely say vulgar, bigoted, divisive, outrageous things while getting a toll-free pass.
It wasn’t Donald Trump, but Donna Brazile, then Al Gore’s campaign manager, who said Republicans have a "white-boy attitude."
It wasn’t Donald Trump, but Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who said, after Hurricane Katrina, "George (W.) Bush let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were black."
It wasn’t Donald Trump, but Vice President Joe Biden, who, before a mostly black audience, criticized then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Republican resistance to Wall Street regulation, saying: “He’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules – unchain Wall Street! They’re going to put y’all back in chains!”

Snip:

What exactly did Trump say? He said, “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment. … And if she gets to pick her judges – nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.”

We are seeing major attempts to rework Trump’s words into meanings that had little to do with reality.

All this in an effort to sway voters that Trump said other than what he had. Trump has enough problems with his own verbalization without the filter from the left and the right trying to undermine him.

I think people are starting to realize just how corrupt the media has become. They (the media) think they can say anything and we’ll all swallow it right up as gospel. Well, that dog don’t hunt anymore.

When I was in the Army we experimented with the use of frogs in some locales across the world that were trainable to the extent we could point them in a direction and they would go there. Some frogs weigh several lbs and could carry a 1 lb load of C4 or other high explosive. Knowing this was a field of study outside of our realm, we got 2 Universities involved and let a research contract with each one to do testing on the frogs. Our question we wanted answered was: In a combat situation how far could frogs travel with a missing leg(s)? Test procedure to see how far the frog could travel a distance of 100 yards on command of “JUMP FROG JUMP”

One Univ was a noted very liberal Univ, the other more Conservative, the results of the research as follows:

Conservative Univ: Up on command of “JUMP FROG JUMP” a frog with a 1 lb weight was able to travel 100 yards in 5 min, with one leg missing the frog was only able to travel 75 yds in 5 min, with 2 legs missing only 50 yds in 5 min and with only 1 leg, the frog could only travel 25 yds in 5 min. Conclusion: With all legs removed the frog was unable to travel at all.

Liberal Univ: Up on command of “JUMP FROG JUMP” a frog with a 1 lb weight was able to travel 100 yards in 5 min, with one leg missing the frog was only able to travel 75 yds in 5 min, with 2 legs missing only 50 yds in 5 min and with only 1 leg, the frog could only travel 25 yds in 5 min. Conclusion: Up on command of “JUMP FROG JUMP” a frog with all legs removed the frog was deaf, which makes the frogs disadvantaged, but this could be mitigated with a Govt program to furnish hearing aids to the frogs.

Enki your right & your wrong. The right has been talking about how agenda driven the media has become for many years. The left doesn’t see it at all because everything the media pushes is what they think (or are told to think). Those in the middle, well they don’t really have a voice & even if they did we wouldn’t hear about it until they agreed with the left. Look at the political rallies going on. Hillary has crowds of 2 or 3 hundred & they are presented as if there were thousand there. Trump has huge rallies & if anything it’s presented as if it wasn’t as large as it is. But as always the election comes down to which way will those in the middle go & maybe part of how they go is based off of what they believe. To show the power of the media you only have to look at this sight & you will see how some shy away from Trump. A socialist agenda is worse than ONE MAN? Really? I just hope those in the middle don’t fall for all the hype that some here have fallen for. I’m just blown away that some worry about what Trump “might” do instead of worrying about Hillary doing more of the same.
