MSM (Fake News) and Trump: The Truth About Their Secret Meetings

Remember that ‘barrage’ of Trump’s tweets on November 21-22? They were a smoke screen to keep you distracted from the secret meetings Trump was having with the “dishonest media”. That was fake news.

Keep reading. See how the fake tweets and fake news of that day were created. It’s a long process, but at the end you will see the results.

The Media swears Fealty to the Don Behind Closed Doors

The oligarchy and conservatives of differing ideologies and bank accounts sizes are lining up to guide the Apprentice President and put their resources at his disposition (all highlights and underlines by me):

But we’re happy that he’s picking people who have that free market background, particularly because on many issues, he is a blank slate, so anybody with expertise is in an amazing position to shape his agenda.” On Trump surrounding himself with ultra-libertarian Kock brothers’ network members, at Politico.

The American mainstream media MSM is also in line pledging their support to the Donald, the man they used to call during the elections “a threat to democracy” and “the most immoral candidate ever to run for president”. They share much with Mitt Romney in that way, don’t they?

But their pledging is happening behind closed doors. It does matter, folks, that it is behind closed doors.

Trump met in private with the owners of cable and TV networks on Monday November 21. The next day, Tuesday 22, he met with The New York Times (NYT), first in private and afterwards on an on-the-record “conversation”. The problem with this is…nobody gives anything for nothing at the highest levels of the oligarchy or the MSM. The free market demands an exchange of values. But no one in the media is letting us in on that transaction. Pity.

In a veiled effort to protect the Don from criticism from his followers for having secret deals with the despised “dishonest media”, some media outlets tried to justify the secret meetings as something perfectly normal.

The “lying media” told us that week, after the meetings took place, that every elected president meets with the MSM before/after his (no female president yet) inauguration to set the goals, rules of the game, and understandings that will characterize their relation in the new administration. They explained that those perfectly normal meetings are held both on-and off-the-record. There’s a private meeting from which the public is kept in the dark, and a meeting where the media let’s the public in.

Note: You are probably trying to figure out why is this so familiar? Well, it has to do with Hillary Clinton. Of course! Now you remember, don’t you? The MSM vilified her as acorrupt liar and not trustworthy because she once supposedly said in a ‘secret speech’ to Wall Street, that every administration should have two forms of meetings, one private and one for the public. We didn’t get to know from the media her explanation nor the context of the comment. Only the fact that she said it was necessary to portray her as corrupt. [TRUE FACTS USED AS WEAPON:Spinning] She clarified later, but not published by the MSM, that she was talking on the topic of security of government information.

But now the MSM has no moral compunctions about hiding from the public their conversations with the man they said “threatens our democracy”. That same man,Trump, must have gotten what he needed from that private meeting with The NYT, for he came out of it gushing praises at The Times as the “jewel” of the world media.

TRUMP: Thank you all, very much, it’s a great honor. I will say, The Times is, it’s a great, great American jewel. A world jewel. And I hope we can all get along. We’re looking for the same thing, and I hope we can all get along well.

Knowing Trump as we do, we know he gushes for no one for free. We didn’t get the transcript of that private meeting, so we don’t know how close and intimate that relationship between the MSM and his administration will be. But based on the story they concocted for the public during those two days, we can imagine how close that relation will be. Too close.

Who Needs Who More: A Quid pro Quo a la Carte

The Apprentice President, as any president, will need the support of the MSM. In part to help disseminate the (mis)information needed to obtain public opinion support for his policies, whether from direct press releases  and friendly press conferences, or from ‘leaks’ to the media.

For example, the American MSM agreed to cover the 2002 invasion of Iraq on President Bush’s Jr. terms, agreeing in that way to compromise its independence and credibility. There were to be no emotional TV images of soldiers’ coffins arriving at the airport, and no free-roaming-through-Iraq journalists: Only media “embedded” to the military would be allowed and ‘protected’. This media policy aimed at controlling negative public opinion of the war that would have resulted as a consequence of uncensored journalists’ reports. Vice President Dick Cheney memorably stated “this is not going to be covered like Vietnam”. And so it wasn’t.

But the media moguls also depend on access to the president’s administration for their business of public (mis)information; and also because, as owners of the media, they are part of the oligarchy, they want to control what information comes out of the White House and Congress. Murdock and Bezos have interests to protect too. They are not called ‘the fourth power’ for nothing. Except that this new president was “tremendously” successful at vilifying the “dishonest and lying media”. A democracy can’t tolerate the perception that its mainstream media is the equivalent of Soviet propaganda state media. Be clear about this, when the Donald called them “dishonest and lying media”, he meant propaganda media. That’s salesmanship.

And this is why it is in the public’s interest to know how the media moguls and Trump negotiated the future of the media relationship with his administration.

So, as you can see, this situation requires a quid pro quo. Enter the drama.

The Apprentice President Episode01: Fake news – media ‘startled’ by fake Salvo of tweets from crazy president (this is good!)

As new president-appointed, the Donald had his first “bigly” meetings with the media in the only way he knows how: as a Trump event, pure entertainment.

He had scheduled, days ahead of time, meetings with cable and TV media moguls for Monday 21 November, and with The New York Times (NYT) for Tuesday 22 November. Both were to be off-the-record meetings, but the public was not informed ahead of time about the scheduled meetings.

As I discussed above, it just doesn’t look good for the new president to be meeting in secret with the media. So, they do what they do best: Turn the whole affair into a show/drama to keep the people’s attention away from the private meetings as they were happening. While the private meetings were going on, the rest of the media was in a ‘frenzy’ ‘informing’ the public about Trump’s ‘crazy’ tweets. Oh my god, he cancelled the on-the-record meeting but…wait, he uncancelled it!

Meanwhile, you didn’t realize he had already met in private with the NYT. The drama they created around the fake tweets is appalling in its deviousness.

The Fake News

All of the media made the exact same report about Trump “barrage of tweets” to cancel the meeting with the NYT.

According to the agreed-upon-by-everyone-facts, the media told us that Trump woke up early in the morning of November 22, at 6:31 AM to be precise, to start a “barrage” of tweets at that time about cancelling and “uncancelling” his meeting with the NYT. Funny thing is, the agreed-upon fact, that he was up at 6:16 AM, is inaccurate.

The first tweet happened at 3:16 AM. oops! Not one media outlet took notice of the discrepancy.

tweet2

Two different tweets. Top tweet says 3:16 AM. Bottom one says 6:16 AM. Different ‘heart’ and re-tweet amounts. {It was not a re-tweet. How can one tweet appear later with different time and yet with LESS ‘likes’  than the earliest one?]The first has more on all counts. link for top tweet:https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/801021596228091905?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Those are two different tweets. It matters because, if I’m correct that those are two different tweets, they point at concerted deception by all MSM involved. The intention was to tie the public from early morning on an all-day media frenzy about Trump cancelling and “uncancelling” the meetings, with all the distraction attached to it, and with the intention of concealing the fact that Trump and the MSM had agree to, and were in fact meeting in secret.

The script every media outlet was to use went like this:

Trump ‘unleashed’ a ‘crazy barrage’ of tweets to ‘punish’ the ‘lying media’ for ‘lying about him’ (as in ‘they deserved it’). Their reports should all emphasize an image of Trump as being consistent with his anti-media campaign attitude and his promise to ‘deal’ with the “dishonest media”. And he should come across as castigating the media and making them scared of him, in other words, he must be portrayed as masculine and powerfully virile, even if ‘crazy’.

As you can see from the Google search ‘trump meeting with the media tweets’, they used powerful active verbs and descriptive words to describe him: he “scolded the media”, “slammed the mainstream media”, “openly [he’s no afraid of them] criticized the media”

In other words, Trump went OTT (over the top) of the TV networks and spoke directly to the American people, as his predecessor, President Barack Obama, had done on occasion. The intended message to the TV networks and to the American audience was, “I don’t need the TV networks to communicate with the people. I can use social media platforms on the internet.” He thus threw a spotlight on the shift of media power from linear TV to the random-access and immediate, on-demand-access content distributed on the internet. [Forbes mag: Trump Meetings Spotlight A Media Power Shift]

He spoke “directly to the American peoplethrough tweets, for crying out loud. They even compared him with Obama! And the message? He will be talking to the public through tweeter! Notice also the phenomenon I have called Trump Apologist: People who explain Trump’s behaviors and intentions to the public as if they were in his mind. That guy on that quote seem to be speaking for Trump.

from-google

From Google search.

And, finally, the MSM was reporting ‘live’ from inside the private meetings. They were not reporting any agreements about what kind of relations will exist between his administration and the MSM. Nope. They were reporting live that Trump made the meeting like it “was a f…firing squad”. They broke the confidentiality agreement to tell you how ‘brave that man is’: the Lone Ranger.

The important element to consider is that the message was sent across the media, no one detoured from the script. Consistency of message is key in the MSM’s fake news, as well as timing: They keep you hooked with a frenzied ‘report’ about ‘crazy Trump’ from the moment you wake up in the morning and for the next two days. Then it disappears. No one remembers that Trump met in secret with the media.

It is exactly what happened with Hillary Clinton’s emails: The media covered them 24/7 for one and a half-year. Then, on November 9, after they achieved the goal of defeating Clinton, the emails disappeared as if  by magic.

The public will remember the feeling of Trump going crazy that day trying to castigate the media into obedience. They will love him for it. But the details of that day…not registered in their minds. They will be oblivious of the fact that he and the “lying media” are working together behind the curtain to make sure the ‘deplorables‘ follow the script written by the owners of the MSM.

FAKE NEWS COOKED

The extraordinary events of November 21 and 22 were fake news and events. Faked was Trump’s tweeting ‘meltdown’. Faked was his ‘anger at the media’. Faked were the ‘live’ reports from “inside the private meetings” describing to you live how he was ‘killing them’. There is no way for you to corroborate that information, you must trust the lying media is telling you the truth. And since they all agreed in their reports, it must be true, doesn’t it? Isn’t that fantastic? You distrust the lying media but you trust the information they feed you is true.

Those two private meetings (the 21 and 22) were confidential, but the MSM wants you to believe they were willing to break their own interest in their own confidentiality. Fake was the ‘news’ that Trump himself got up at 6:31 Am to start a “storm” of tweets. On whose mind does it fit to believe that a man already in control of this nation will get up at that time to do that? Faked are the reports on the Donald’s ‘craziness’.

He is so ‘crazy’ that he is filling his cabinet with the top of the top of Wall Street, with racists and warmongers, all from the top of the elite world. The Murdocks and the Bezos of the MSM are not threatened by that craziness.

They are threatened by yours, for you did put the fear in their hearts. But now they control you. The media will accept being called the “lying media” as long as it serves the purpose of keeping Trump’s followers happy thinking that he is flagellating the “dishonest media”.

What matters is that Trump is putting the government in the hands of the most recalcitrant ultra-right-wingers, which is to say fascists, globalist and non-globalists alike.

The owners of the MSM, Murdock, Bezos, etc., are part of that elite. They belong to the class of men that will have no moral qualms to open ‘centers of detention’ for the ‘out of control’ angry voters threatening “the success of globalism”. To calm the angry voters, these elite will use the power of the media to manipulate the people’s emotions, to keep they distracted and entertained; to keep them angry and easily mobilized when needed. 

Welcome to the reality show presidency. The MSM and the elite will write the script for Trump. Just sit down and enjoy it. You may be called to be extras.

And follow the Fuhrer, please. He is courageous, he will demolish the dishonest media with his own brand of dishonesty.

Good luck out there, people.

Trump To The Media: I’m Your Boss

Hello,

Now that the elections are over, I will not be posting here anymore; I will be linking to my new blog White Media Lies Matter. The focus will be on propaganda, politics and Identity Politics. I’m trying to polish my work this  time. I hope you visit me there.

The first post over there is about how the power relations between Trump and the media are shaping up based on his first ‘presidential press conference’ yesterday.

Trump To The Media: I’m Your Boss

https://whitemedialivesmatter.wordpress.com/

MSM Dumps Hillary and Crowns Trump President

The very first line in this article at Bezo’s WaPo is designed for you to be put off by Hillary herself and by her campaign platform, highlights by me:

Hillary Clinton’s official campaign platform is now twice as long as “Hamlet”: seventy-three thousand six hundred forty-five words of policy ideas. One hundred seventy-four pages. And growing.

From there, Bezos’ WaPo goes to shred her platform and, more shocking, to praise Trump as a revolutionary and her as the old status quo defender:

But, at its heart, this wordy list amounts to a statement of Clinton’s confidence in two things.The status quo. And the federal bureaucracy.

The other two candidates left in this presidential race want to overhaul American government. Clinton mainly wants to tinker with its parts. In many cases, her plans involve adding small — but intricate — new tasks for the bureaucracy, designed to make government smarter, more generous and more just.

This article amounts to a tacit turn by the MSM and the elite it represents towards crowing Trump the next president of the USA.

As I mentioned in Note #5, the MSM is talking 24/7 about Trump, ignoring Hillary 99% of the time, and bringing her only to portray her as worse than Trump. The idea is to make him so familiar and mainstream that anyone, Hillary, i.e., would come across as an obstacle to this now familiar and ‘revolutionary’ man.

Why would they want to destroy her and defend Trump? No, it’s not for “clicks”; that would be a dangerous naive thinking in the part of the voters. The MSM is not an intangible thing, it is the property of real human beings with real class interests.

As I have argued on this blog, Trump’ apparent ideological position, “anti-globalist”, has been a bone of contention for the GOP; but that would change once he makes peace with the party leaders. He is a billionaire, his alliance is NOT with you. Cheney, who came on board with him, will train him in the art of government by and for the elite.

People, you have to wake up. The elite, via its MSM and the not so mainstream who hate Hillary for being a ‘feminist’ woman, will put you to sleep and guide you to vote for Trump.

BIG MISTAKE  not to wake up NOW.

Clinton’s wonky policies of fine-grained complexity contrast with rivals’ grandiose ideas

 

 

From Vox: Why the media will lift Trump up and tear Clinton down

by David Roberts on May 5, 2016, 7:30 a.m. ET

It now seems all but certain that the presidential election will see Donald Trump face off against Hillary Clinton.

We find ourselves at the tail end of a brief period of clarity. For the past few months, virtually everyone outside of the 40 percent of Republican primary voters who carried him to victory has agreed that Trump is not fit to be president.

Marco Rubio called him a “con man.” Mitt Romney called him “a phony, a fraud.” Cruz called him an “amoral pathological liar” and said if he is elected “this country could well plunge into the abyss.” Lindsey Graham said Trump would lead to “another 9/11.” David Brooks called him “epically unprepared to be president.” George Will said that “his running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified.” The house organ of conservatism, National Review, condemned him in florid terms. A Super PAC was created just to stop him.

This Clinton camp video is effectively narrated by Mitt Romney https://t.co/E4Iynf1SuZ

— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) May 4, 2016
No one has captured the case better than longtime conservative political analyst Jay Cost:

As Cost emphasizes, the issue here is not (merely) ideological — it’s about basic fitness and competence. A man with Trump’s temperament and habits could do real, lasting, no-joke damage as the leader of the free world.

Hillary Clinton, for all her flaws, has demonstrated a basic level of competence. She understands how policy and government work. She’s not openly racist; she hasn’t encouraged street violence. There’s no risk that she would disrupt the international order or cause an economic crisis out of pique.

That’s a really, really low bar. But it’s the only bar she has to clear in this contest. Almost irrespective of what you think of Clinton’s politics or her policies, she is manifestly more prepared to run the federal government than Donald Trump.

The number of people who recognize this elemental fact about the election, however, has probably already reached and passed its peak. It will decline from here on out. The moment of clarity is already ending.
The political ecosystem needs two balanced parties to survive
Why is clarity passing? Because it appears Trump is actually going to be the Republican nominee. It’s really happening. And the US political ecosystem — media, consultants, power brokers, think tanks, foundations, officeholders, the whole thick network of institutions and individuals involved in national politics — cannot deal with a presidential election in which one candidate is obviously and uncontroversially the superior (if not sole acceptable) choice. The machine is simply not built to handle a race that’s over before it’s begun.

There are entire classes of professionals whose jobs are premised on the model of two roughly equal sides, clashing endlessly. The Dance of Two Parties sustains the consultants and activists.

That giant clicking sound is 10,000 Republican consultants and activists deleting their #NeverTrump tweets.

And it sustains the media, which is what I want to discuss below.

Among all these classes of professionals, all these institutions, that whole superstructure of US politics built around two balanced sides, there will be a tidal pull to normalize this election, to make it Coca-Cola versus Pepsi instead of Coca-Cola versus sewer water.

The US political system knows how to play the former script; it doesn’t know how to play the latter. There’s a whole skein of practices, relationships, and money flows developed around the former. The latter would occasion a reappraisal of, well, everything. Scary.

So there will be a push to lift Donald Trump up and bring Hillary Clinton down, until they are at least something approximating two equivalent choices.

(Photo by Bilgin S. Sasmaz/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)Same basic deal, right?
It’s not a conspiracy; it won’t be coordinated. It doesn’t need to be. It’s just a process of institutions, centers of power and influence, responding to the incentive structure that’s evolved around them. The US political ecosystem needs this election to be competitive.

The media cannot countenance a lopsided race
No institution needs a competitive election more than the media, especially what remains of the “objective” campaign media. Imagine writing this headline:

Trump, bad candidate, likely to lose

Now imagine writing it again and again for six months — and watching your web traffic dwindle into nothing. Sad!

The campaign press requires, for its ongoing health and advertising revenue, a real race. It needs controversies. “Donald Trump is not fit to be president” may be the accurate answer to pretty much every relevant question about the race, but it’s not an interesting answer. It’s too final, too settled. No one wants to click on it.

What’s more, the campaign media’s self-image is built on not being partisan, which precludes adjudicating political disputes. How does that even work if one side is offering up a flawed centrist and the other is offering up a vulgar xenophobic demagogue?

It would be profoundly out of character for reporters to spend the six months between now and the election writing, again and again, that one side’s candidate is a liar and a racist and an egomaniac. It would be uncomfortable, personally and professionally.

 

What we’ve learned today abt life thru Nov if Trump wins:some reporters can’t be objective abt him & left/right critics will sound the same

— Mark Halperin (@MarkHalperin) April 27, 2016
It’s true that the media has been uncharacteristically blunt in its criticism of Trump during the primary, mainly because almost every source it considers legitimate hates Trump, including the Republican establishment. To date, the anti-Trump position has been safely inside the Washington consensus.

That will change once the GOP apparatus inevitably swings around behind Trump and begins accusing journalists who write critical stories of bias. If there’s one thing the GOP apparatus knows how to do, it’s ensure that there’s always another side, that reporters get smacked every time they move past “one hand, other hand” coverage.

Already we’ve seen reporters leap at the Trump “pivot” story several times, though Trump’s newfound presidential tone never seems to last even a full 24 hours.

It will not take much for “new, grown-up Trump” stories to take hold once he is the nominee. The media and the GOP apparatus both need those stories, the former for “balance,” the latter for paychecks.

In short order, Trump’s obvious unfitness for office — today widely acknowledged across both parties and in the mainstream media — will become a partisan observation, something Democrats say. Consultants from the two parties will sit across from one another on cable news shows and squabble about it, as nature intended.

What we’re accustomed to; what we need.
To the extent that Trump can’t be lifted, Clinton will be brought down
Just as the media will need to elevate Trump, it will need to bring Clinton down. Going after Clinton will be journalists’ default strategy for proving that they’re not biased. They will need opportunities to be “tough” toward Clinton, or at least to engage in the kind of performative toughness valued in campaign journalism, to demonstrate their continued independence.

Trump will give them opportunities. And it’s not going to be through policy critique, a domain in which Clinton towers over him. It’s going to be through tawdry, nasty shit.

Consider the attacks Trump has used to triumph in the primary: Cruz’s father helped kill JFK; Cruz is not eligible to be president; Rubio is an effete liar who sweats too much; Kasich is a disgusting eater; Jeb Bush has low testosterone; Fiorina has an unpleasant face. His nickname for Clinton is already “crooked Hillary.” He’s already dredged up her husband’s affairs and her alleged role in them.

Consider what Trump will do when he’s behind, being bested by a woman, at risk of national humiliation, struggling to unite a party that is connected to him only through a shared hatred of Clinton. The mind boggles.
Will the Washington press corps chase after ridiculous personal attacks and conspiracy theories regarding Hillary Clinton, whispered into their ears by right-wing hacks?

Ha ha. Have you met the Washington press corps? They have been doing that since the early 1990s. Clinton rules mean guilty until proven innocent, then and now. The Washington media is a machine that transforms crap about Clintons into headlines, and Trump is a bottomless supply of crap.

Along with that, Clinton being Clinton, and Clintonworld being Clintonworld, there is likely to be no shortage of missteps, malapropisms, unforced errors, and poorly chosen surrogates to keep the media busy even without Trump’s help. Stories purporting to (finally) bring Clinton down never lack for clicks. She is, after all, the most disliked national politician in American life … except Donald Trump.

So there you have it: an obvious choice that numerous institutions and individuals are committed to making as difficult, as unpleasant, and as drawn-out as possible. It augurs a substance-free, policy-averse, crap-happy campaign season, degraded even by the diminished standards of contemporary US politics. Wake me when it’s over.

Trump’s Art Of The Deal: Leaving Mental Illness and Depressed Economy In His Wake

Do you really, but REALLY want to stop Trump? It’s so easy! The MSM can talk about his millions gained from promoting an illness called ‘compulsive gambling’. What are the odds the MSM will go there? The same as  you winning the lotto.

Don’t expect the MSM to attack the elite class. Pouring the cleansing light over Trump’s so-called multi-billion ’empire’ would inevitably put many oligarchs’ head on the guillotine, for their billions too come at the cost of a nation’s health and well-being.

All those casino moguls feed the political elite class and the MSM; don’t bet on having the moguls exposed publicly by the same media and politicians who lied to the public and disregarded their constituents’ pleas to not open more casinos in their states. Anyone can check the stats showing casinos have not been the economical jackpot the people were made to believe  they would win in order to accept having them in their states.

Now the MSM is giving 24/7 coverage to Trump. You may think is bad coverage, but keep your eyes peeled and your ears unwaxed to hear the subtext. By not denouncing the source of his ’empire’ they are helping him: the implication is that he and his businesses are ‘clean’. And invariably they give more air to his attacks on Hillary than to hers on him. While he is ‘most hated’, he can ‘redeem’ himself by ‘looking and sounding presidential’; Hillary is not given that opportunity.

Money gambled in casinos is money that doesn’t come back to the communities. And the impact of the mental illness called ‘compulsive gambling’ is devastating to the person and the states. Religious fanatics are supporting Trump with bible in hand, but no one talks to them about the contradiction of supporting a business man enriching through immoral transactions, not that they care. Few people do. But it is because they are been lied to about the casino business.

The MSM is the art of deception, don’t expect to see it by just turning your TV on. You have to be critical of what they feed you, which means you can’t be passively absorbing the messages.

So, yes, bringing Trump down is easy if you have the will to do it. But, IMHO, it is becoming clearer that, despite all that ‘negative’ attention, the oligarchs and the MSM would rather have a corrupt billionaire in power than a ‘feminist’ woman, no matter that she is not a ‘threat’ to the nation.

Think about it for a moment: if Trump is so corrosive and ‘toxic’, why don’t they give more and better coverage to Hillary, or even Sanders, to counter him? The regular people is more open to having a woman president; the white male oligarchs are less inclined to it. And don’t dismiss either the fact that the Israelis are not ‘convinced’ that Hillary will do their bidding for them. These are some of the hidden political elements driving the deceptive MSM’s messages. It’s not only Trump they are ‘attacking’.

The MSM gave you the invasion of Iraq and now they give you Trump.

Note#4: The False Battle of The Outsider (T) vs The Insider (H)

The battle of the outsider vs the insider will be one of the themes the MSM will use to represent  the battle between Hillary and Trump. Psst: it’s a false battle. [See also Trump, Sanders, and the Myth of the Outsider]

Saying that Trump is not part of the ‘establishment’  is like saying that because your hair is outside your skull it is not part of your body.

The Trump appeal is the product of the success of the MSM at implanting in the people’s mind the myth that the business elite is apolitical and outside of partisan politics in Congress and the presidency.

Trump himself stated that all the republican candidates against him received money from him, that he “bought them, because politicians are corrupt. You can buy them to do what you want in Congress”. That is NOT an outsider; that is someone making use of his property: Congress.

But attacking Trump as an elitist, heartless billionaire businessman would imply attacking the myth: the elite would be the collateral damage. You can bet your derriere on the elite not allowing that to happen. The MSM can defeat Trump, they just won’t do it attacking him as part of the elitist class.

So, whenever you hear the “battle of the outsider vs the insider”, remember: they are selling you the myth. They will NOT question Trump’s business deals, profiting from promoting compulsive gambling…They will attack him as a racist. But you know by now that the GOP is as racist, if not more, as Trump, don’t you?

Pay attention, people. Don’t let them manipulate your emotions.
