I’ve been forcing myself to listen to CNN and MSNBC. Just wanted to say that it has been a profoundly unpleasant experience. Even the most mild mannered people are yelling and screaming over one another. This usually happens when some Trump surrogate who seems to have a player piano scroll for a brain starts spewing the most ridiculous nonsense ever. I have no idea why the cable networks allow these people on their shows. It has become UNLISTENABLE. I cancelled my premium subscription to msnbc on tunein last night. I’m getting nothing out of it. But the CNN stream is still free, so I am forcing myself to pay attention.
Here’s what Trump has on Hillary:
1.) The email server. Thankfully, the “journalists” are moving on. They must realize they are beating a dead horse and there’s no more juice to suck out of that story. But the Trump surrogates are still shrieking about the Blackberries smashed by a hammer. That shit’s gotta stop. Not because there is anything else to learn, because there isn’t. No it’s because it’s difficult to listen to the surrogates blather on about it and talk over other guests without wanting to hurl my iPhone across the room. It’s done, Donald. You won’t get one more voter from this.
2.) Deplorables. Well, we can’t call them racists, sexists, homophobes etc. That’s too PC. So, Hillary is bringing back shame. Good for her. And when Pence can’t bring himself to call David Duke, someone who enthusiastically supports Trump’s campaign a white supremacist, then we know it is working. Yes, Governor, he is a bad association. You know it and now we know you know. The phony outrage from the Trump campaign is UNLISTENABLE.
3.) I swear, if I hear one more journalist say that Hillary is not transparent enough and therefore untrustworthy simply because she didn’t see any reason to tell everyone in the world about her pneumonia, I’m going to personally go to Atlanta and scream in Chris Cuomo’s ear to knock it the fuck off. Enough is enough. There’s simply no comparison between Hillary and Trump on the issue of transparency and disclosure. The double standard is deeply, DEEPLY offensive to women who have to sit thru this shit day after day. Maybe these channels don’t care if they lose their female audience. That’s how it looks anyway. No progress is being made here and if I were Hillary, I’d tell these news people that if they don’t like what she’s going to give them with respect to her medical records, they can shove it up their asses. She shouldn’t play this game anymore. Give them the exact number of details as Mitt Romney did and no more. She is not obligated to keep producing documentation just because the news organizations demand it. It’s not because she has anything to hide. It’s because she’s got better things to do with her time than try to satisfy the insatiable.
Other than that, Trump’s got nothing.
She, on the other hand, has plenty on Trump. If the news media doesn’t want to cover it, she’ll have to find a way to get around them. They should be more cautious because if she manages to do it, they’ll be obsolete and not a moment too soon.
