Once again the fiercest opposition to Donald Trump comes not from the Democratic candidate but the press hell bent on getting Hillary elected and stopping Trump.
For two days the lead political story on television news and the press has been the 10 year old video. Countless hours of punditry talk of nothing else.
Two or possibly three damaging stories broke on the same day. One concerned Trump. A 10 year old video popped up from the never unbiased Washington Post showing Trump engaging in a salacious locker room talk bragging about the ease of being a sexual opportunist. Certainly far from admirable but far from the press portrayal of him as a sexual predator. Bill Clinton was/is a predator known for forcing himself on women (it’s called rape).
Another story broke from previously concealed emails showing Hillary’s criminal obstruction of justice and the collusion of Obama and the State Department in covering it up. Add to that the release of more concealed emails with transcripts from her overpaid speeches proving Hillary to be intentionally duplicitous speaking out of both sides of her mouth admitting that her personal views nothing to do with her public ones confirming what we have always known that to her lying is just her way of doing business. To get what she wants lying is necessary and therefore justified.
Now which story is headline news and the lead story on every cable news show? Of course. Trump. Over and over and over again.
Salacious wins over criminal activity every time as long as the juicy stuff will hurt a Republican. The fact that Hillary has obstructed justice with the assistance of every arm of the Obama administration and continues to do so is unimportant to the left and the press. The fact that she has no moral character and is unable to tell the truth about anything is of no interest to the media. Trump is the shiny object diverting the attention of the crowd and spooking the herd of sheep like the yap of a dog.
The source and timing of the sudden and coincidental appearance of the 10 year old video are not mentioned and the video is accepted as a natural occurrence. Like the un-named sources for even older Trump tax returns these things just slide into the headlines with unlimited amplification and spun to maximum negative effect.
Tasting blood in the water, eager commentators are drooling with speculation of Trump’s withdrawal from the race.
Lord help us if Hillary slithers into the lead.
