Hillary Clinton had a rough August. Okay, that may be the understatement of the summer. And her rough August seems to have carried over into September with new revelations about her illegal email server. From her “Deplorable” comment to her collapsing at the 911 ceremony and her campaign not being honest with reporters about the cause and on and on it goes.
And as if to make matter worse, her campaign spent 50 million dollars during the month of August on anti-Trump ads and had nothing to show for it except a 10-point slide in the polls. If things don’t turn around soon, she may see her poll numbers fall even further.
In what appears to be an act of desperation, the Clintonistas (i.e., the Clinton Machine and their accomplices in the media), frantically searched for something to hang around the neck of Donald Trump, the deplorable and chief!
They started with an incident in which Trump was “rudely” (see I can do it too) interrupted by the Pastor of an African-American church during a presentation.
“Mr. Trump,” she said, “I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not give a political speech.”
“Okay, that’s good,” Trump said at the time. “Then I’m going to go back to Flint” meaning the issues surrounding Flint, Michigan.
Later Trump was asked what he thought of the incident. He brushed it off, but noted that in retrospect, the Pastor seemed nervous saying, before he took to the lectern, he met the pastor and she seemed to be a “nervous mess.”
NBCnews.com, one never to hide their bias blasted the headline “With Attack on Black Pastor, Trump Reboot Again Goes Off Rails.”
NBC News writes, “Donald Trump, currently trying to cast himself a softer candidate with an eye for policy, returned to his old ways with a vengeance on Thursday as he mocked an African-American pastor in Flint, Michigan and concocted a false story about his visit to her congregation…Trump’s efforts to rebrand his campaign toward outreach, discipline and substance have clashed with his natural penchant for insults, inaccurate boasts and conspiracy theories.” — ibid.
Really? Mocked? Concocted? So the man is asked a question and gives his observation, and the liberal press labels it an attack. My favorite go-to phrase, “go figure!”
Unfortunately for the leftist, it wasn’t working. No rational person was buying the garbage they were selling.
Then, a few days later opportunity reared its head again. On September 16, speaking to a crowd in Miami, Trump, defending the Second Amendment, said, “I think her [Hillary Clinton’s] bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm immediately…Take their guns away, she doesn’t want guns. Take their[s] — and let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away.”
The New York Post and other left-leaning publications commented, “This wasn’t the first time Trump raised the specter of violence against Clinton.” — NYPost.com
Not wanting to be “left outted” the LaTimes.com wrote, “Donald Trump invoked the possibility of a violent assault on Hillary Clinton once again on Saturday, a day after he suggested that her Secret Service bodyguards disarm… Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Trump’s comments in Miami fit a disturbing pattern of encouraging violence.”
Let that sink in! “…invoked the possibility of a violent assault on Hillary Clinton…” Isn’t that why her security detail is armed? That is the point he was attempting to make. According to this statement, he made it and made it well!
But it made little difference because the leftist narrative gained little traction and the stories eventually found their way into file thirteen (the refuse retainer).
But be prepared for more from Hillary and her goose-stepping media. As Mr. Trump’s poll numbers continue to rise, and Mrs. Clinton’s decline, the frenzied fanaticism of the left will show itself more and more.
Everything Mr. Trump says will be interpreted in the worst possible light. But hey, that is what irrational emotional acts of desperation do.
