I always thought he was smart. He saw the Tea Party parade forming up and jumped out in front of it. He started his website and sold it to Salem Communications for a tidy sum.
I kept waiting for the “One of you up on stage is a porno collecting child molester.” “Any of you care to comment on that? How about you Mr. Trump?”
Make sure you are aware of the Kelly interview on Stern. She’s a piece What was left of her credibility she had previously destroyed.
Trump doesn’t have to fire her. She is finished as a serious journalist
#1 rule of journalism : Never make yourself the center of the story!
It is the first and foremost thing taught in journalism school for a reason
I’ve listened to him. My wife listened to him driving home. I never could stand his voice tenor, frankly. I also got the clear impression he was a “name dropper” and self-promoter above anything else.
Yes, you do. Women are people who can attack women and men. The laws apply equally to women and men.
Megyn is a former attorney. Do you think she should be immune from criticism? I would like that gig, and I’d love you to pay me for my immunity while I attack others.
Your argument is completely stupid. How can anyone not call you a sexist?
He is exactly that.
I only see Trump moving forward. People will continue to back someone seen as an underdog.
Trump will need to have something much more substantial than this to bring his candidacy down. 24 million viewers didn't show up for Chris Christie.
So are you an “ageist?”
I don’t care what you call me, it was idiotic of Trump to say what he said on cnn and he’s going to pay for it. You think the optics of a 69 yearold man saying gross things about women is good for a campaign? He needs to put that crap away and stick to immigration and the other issues. Handing your enemy a weapon is just. plain. stupid. You’re an idiot goodbye.
She is an attorney. She can take it.
So, you show yourself to be a very shallow person with a complete inability to debate.
Good. Others will see that. Keep that up.
Todd, don’t be so touchy. You’re making a point here that not everyone agrees with, so just accept the disagreement.
I do see some merit to your point and I am a bit torn on this particular subject. Perhaps Trump should get a bit more wide-angle on his current viewpoint. I don’t know. And I sincerely don’t know. I’m not the one running for President as an outsider and I’m not the one being viciously attacked by these media dogs and bitches. So I don’t know what I would do.
I do know this, that the viciousness of these anti-Trump attacks may be what was needed to keep Trump from getting bored with these proceedings and go “all-in” emotionally and financially to his own campaign.
Others have worried he might not stick it out for the long haul. These attacks might be just the thing to keep him in the fight.
We need him in the fight.
Do I think (like you) that he should shift the nature of his campaigning a bit in the future. Perhaps, I don’t know. But if everything he’s doing now is an expression of his resolve hardening into the consistency of diamond then I’m all for it, rough edges and all.
I repeat. He did not say anything about menstruation or Kelly menstruating. He said she had blood coming out of her eyes and used the same phrase about the two men
Another.media illusion to fit their agenda
Hopefully that excuse will work for his campaign, I’m a Trump fan.
Have you listened to the Howard Stern/kelly interview.
Explains in many minds how she was able to move the older more experienced superior Greta Van Sustern out of her time slot.
Keep the ear cleanser handy Not suited for innocent ears
“...but attacking any reporter who asks him a hard question is childish.”
Hard questions are okay, but as Mark Levin took 45 minutes to explain last night, it was all a phony, out-of -context set-up to destroy Trump. Fox News did extensive opposition research on that question/accusation. Kelly and Fox will NOT emerge from this unharmed.
“If this is what Trump is going to do every time he talks to the media during his campaign, seems like the campaign will end up being all about him.”
As in every presidential race, it IS all about the candidate. Trump just understands how the media destroys people, and is ripping off their cover.
Time for the Trump team to do opposition research. Eric Erickson has made a bunch of mysogynist comments in the past. Dig them up Trump research and get them out there. A black news guy on CNN’s “New Day Saturday” brought Eric’s sexist comments up just a few minutes ago, these anti-women remarks that Erickson has made in the past, and a couple of them are doozies. Get on it now Trump team. If CNN already has them already, you can get them fast too.
“Yeah I know but its political suicide.”
Only if you let it be so and feed into the meme. Just don’t, and stay loyal to Trump or your country will be way the worse off for not doing so.
