Trump is #2 in GOP Field - Page 433

post #6481 of 8748

Context is the issue.  Of course Trump's history with women is relevant if Trump is claiming that he is great with women.  Then he went off on a tangent about Rosie O'Donnell during a presidential debate.  WTF was that?  And THEN he spent the next week going on and on about a Ms. Universe from the 90s and referring people to search for a sex tape?  Trump's mouth is his own worst enemy but some of you expect media sources to just ignore all that?  

 

Back when he was getting all that free publicity from the media Trump was soaking it up.  Now that they started digging (and let's be honest they barely scratched the surface) Trump dubbs the media as corrupt.

Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Bush: Whatever you want.

Trump: Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

 
 
I can't begin to imagine how anyone could turn this into "Trumps bragging about sexual assault"

Again???

I expect NYT not be TMZ and not make stupid excuses when they engaged in partisan defamation. This is not digging this is pure pay-to-play from NYT, doing hatchet job for DNC. When they (Trump enemies on left and right) were digging they could not come up with anything substantial (Trump University disappoints, His subcontractor hired illegals 30 years ago, He had tried to use eminent domain law in court, His investments went bankrupt in court, he claims legal deductions on taxes... Did I forget anything? I was expecting huge skeletons in his closet and all they could find is this???
Where is Saudi money and selling arms around embargo or business associates committing suicides in jail, bribing officials to get building permits or financial machinations that landed his associates in jail? Where are the skeletons?
There were none. I was shocked they could not find anything comparable to his asshole personality or Clinton's transgressions.
So that is why they had to orchestrate Khan-bait, with Rosie O'donnell bait with potty mouth tape with Miss Universe bait , All Mexicans are rapist lie, Trump is KKK, Trump is racist, Trump is white supremacist anything they can come up with. There is no heavy stuff on Trump, none.

People were acting like Trump was a genius for how he exploited the media during the primaries. Being loud and obnoxious and getting free publicity was his whole shtick. Now that it's hurting him instead of helping, all of a sudden it's bias and a conspiracy. Yeah, ok. The media made Trump get on Twitter at 3:30am to attack someone, and they're being "biased" by reporting on that instead of exclusively on part 500 of Clinton's boring emails.

Come on. The media provides a platform for the parties to host conventions and debates. Trump is enough of an idiot to fall into obvious traps and then run with them. That's not "the media" orchestrating anything, it's Donald Trump being a dipshit. Any conventional candidate would have ignored those barbs and they would have disappeared in a day. Instead they cratered his campaign.


And the "Mexicans are rapists" thing was what got Trump started in the first place. Without the dog whistle to the anti-immigration getting huge coverage in the early stages of the primaries, he probably wouldn't have taken of. That was his prompt to propose the wall and everything else. He thrived on controversy in the primaries, and now he's....not.

Have you seen an interview with Trump where Anderson Cooper or some other talking head asked Trump something what you are stating here? Something along the lines : Donald this Khan speech was obvious provocation organised by DNC , could not you see it and react appropriately?:" , have you seen that interview? I have not. And why? Because every MSM talking head knew it is BS, but played along as if they are outraged and Trump assaulted, insulted and berated Khans by asking why the wife was quiet?

I'm not seeing a single mention of it.

Both CNN and Washington post (which I read) have front page articles on the emails and the State Dep efforts to declassify an email.

Good if true, because these are real skeletons.

Let us not forget that it was the NYT that broke this whole email scandal in the first place.

I believe they were the ones who uncovered the private server thing...

The media doesn't exist to be Donald Trump's surrogate to defend himself from his own dipshittery. I mean, FFS, is that really the standard you expect from the media to not be "biased"? There's a reason conventional politicians don't get into these imbroglios, they have enough discipline to not be fucking idiots on social media. And that, in and of itself, is newsworthy in the context of electing a President.


They've done quite a few fawning softball interviews with Trump and his proxies. Look at the interview last night with Melania Trump, for example. Trump started threatening to cut off media outlets who asked him tough questions in the primaries, and they all pretty much caved because they were in love with the ratings he brought in.

Ok therefore (due to all of these non-sequiturs you wrote) NYT should engage in defamation via unsubstantiated unverified uncorroborated reports of sexual misconduct. Because Trump is using Twitter or media? Are you for real? Trump using media = media can lie and defame him ? Cause he benefited from coverage, therefore NYT should stop due diligence because it is free for all and it is Trump's own fault? What kind of logic is that?

Trump has no journalistic license or standard to be held to . NYT does.,

Are we talking about "the media" or the NYT? You're kinda switching back and forth as convenient and it's making whatever point you're trying to make really hard to follow. The NYT had nothing to do with the Khan coverage, so I kinda assumed it wasn't the focus there.
