Trump: “The Media is Rigged”
“Almost as crooked as ‘Crooked’ Hillary Clinton.”

GOP nominee Donald Trump took a direct swipe at the corporate media in a speech Wednesday night, telling supporters that the press is “rigged” against him.

Speaking about the over the top reaction to his remarks earlier in the week regarding Hillary Clinton being “stopped” by “Second Amendment people”, Trump pulled no punches.

“Look at the way they covered the story yesterday,” Trump said in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. “Was that disgusting? The media is rigged. It’s crooked as hell.” Trump has regularly accused the DNC of rigging the political system against Bernie Sanders, for Hillary Clinton, and has warned that voting in the general election may also be rigged. This time it was the media, however, that was the focus of Trump’s rigging accusations. “The media is the biggest rigger of all,” Trump said. “The media is unbelievably dishonest. I would actually say the media is almost as crooked as ‘Crooked’ Hillary Clinton.” Trump added.

In a later appearance on Fox News Channel’s “On the Record,” Trump expanded on the comments, saying that the American people have been “smart” not to buy into false narratives generated by the “biased” media.

“[H]ow smart the people of this country are because they are reading false narratives. They’re reading false newspaper articles and seeing false things on television. I mean, really biased reporting.” Trump said. “And you know, here I am. I’m sitting here in a very close race and what will be and what already is shaping up to be a very close race. So, the people are so smart. They get it. They really get it. And they are seeing it more and more. And I think they are going to get — I think they are going to get a great lesson. And it’s not a fair situation. It’s a rigged situation. In a certain way it’s rigged by the media, if you think about it.” Trump added.

How Donald Trump Can Win In A Landslide | Zero Hedge

I have worked with and for people like Donald Trump.

You see, such people have minds that move very fast through mountains of information and are satisfied if they capture about the most relevant 20% of the key points that convey 80% of the story. They then have no problem telling you how much they know about the subject, while messing up on the 80% of the points that tell only 20% of the story.

Their minds can move faster than their mouths at times; while delivering a message to an audience, they might forget about the specific angle that should be taken with that audience – not that the message is different, but that different points need be emphasized or minimized.

They will move to tangential subjects if asked – even if not as prepared on these; they do this for all of the aforementioned reasons, plus they believe they are the smartest person in the room.

Such people can be great successes at business – the most successful people focus on the 20% that give 80% of the value; handling the rest is why they hire others.

My advice to such people is always: stay on point. If Trump sticks to the following points, he will win the election and win it in a landslide. In each case, Trump’s message – when he stays on point – resonates with many Americans.

War and Foreign Intervention

Trump has the perfect candidate to run against on this issue, as he not only has Hillary’s record to attack but also Bill’s. Bill began the road of expanding NATO and closing in on Russia; Bill used NATO as an offensive force in Yugoslavia. Hillary, meanwhile, has yet to meet an intervention she didn’t like.

Press Hillary on Russia; press her on where her road leads; paint the picture of the folly of placing the safety of the United States at the whim of or in defense of Turkey or some Baltic country.

Do not back off; do not give half-hearted answers: even if Latvia pays its share, are the people of the United States ready to risk a ground war or even nuclear war in defense of Riga? Is there any reason on earth for the United States to risk nuclear war over Crimea or Donbass?

An unequivocal “NO” in answer to such questions will gain and keep many votes – including from many democrats and independents.

Trade Deals

Plenty of voters and previously non-voters are sick of these. They see them for what they are: impossibly complicated treaties that ensure only the largest and most connected companies can sell and compete overseas while in exchange allowing for the import of foreign goods in a favored manner for the benefit of those same largest and most connected companies.

Bailing out Wall Street

Come out strongly against the actions of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve, especially during 2007 – 2009 but also continuing. Hit on the point that these have maintained and improved the wealth of the 1% while doing nothing for or even destroying the wealth and livelihoods of the 99%.

This is obvious to the 99% – they just want to hear someone pound on the message and state clearly how he will act differently.

Hillary & Bill Corruption

Talk about a target rich environment! I need not expand.


In each case, Trump can paint a picture diametrically opposite to where Hillary stands. In each case, this picture is attractive to a majority of likely and potential voters.

Donald – just stay on point.
