I believe he (and many folks)are against the media moguls, their editorial boards, and political pundits who determine all the opinions pushed on the pubic.

He’s a fake candidate, doing Hillary a favor.

1) It’s working. Half the republicans like his bigoted rants. But half the republicans are not enough to put a person in the White House. Hillary will win the Presidency due to this stunt.

2) It’s perfectly legal. There is no law against one party planting a ridiculous candidate into another party’s primary. GOP voters should have known better than to vote for him. But they don’t. Haha.

What’s scary is he has a yuuuge audience for his hate speak and fear mongering.

With forced applause, and punishment for speaking out. Then he could point to the audience and say, “see they love me.”

Very Putin, very trump, very republican.

It appears however, right-wing media is reaping what’s been sown in the past few decades: the majority of GOP voters are following the false and offensive bully Trump who doesn’t have a chance in the general election. Trump brings out the worst in his followers, exemplified by their eagerness to intimidate journalists, and their behavior is an embarrassment to all fair-minded and civil Americans.

I often think he is an exercise in political camp. He could easily distance himself, and often does, from anything he says and blame his following for their stupidity and gullibility.

His ribbing no longer felt harmless. It felt like a warning …”

Ms.Flitter, my hope is that you will not fritter away this opportunity to understand how the media does exactly the same thing.
