Why Rig the Election When You Have the Media in Your Pocket?

Republican nominee Donald Trump warned this week that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats might try to rig the election and steal the White House in much the same fashion they screwed Bernie Sanders out of the nomination. That struck some as fanciful and struck others as plausible, but the truth is that even if such a coup could be pulled off, Clinton may have little need for it. With the entire mainstream media acting as a surrogate for her campaign, Hillary Clinton is sitting pretty with less than 100 days to go until election day.

Last week, with the Democratic National Convention anointing Hillary in Philadelphia, the media was embarrassing itself in its worship of the criminal nominee. This week, Hillary’s become an afterthought, drowned out by relentless coverage of Trump…none of it positive. From his ongoing feud with Khizr Khan to reports of a campaign in disarray to Republican officials allegedly planning to replace him before the end of August, the media is proving that their negative slant on Trump in the primaries was just a warmup to the main event.

Even some of Trump’s closest allies are expressing concerns.

“The current race is which of these two is the more unacceptable, because right now, neither of them is acceptable,” said Newt Gingrich. “Trump is helping her to win by proving he is more unacceptable than she is.”

Really? How can that be possible? It’s more unacceptable to respond to the Khans than it is to violate federal law and place national security at risk? It’s more unacceptable to withhold an endorsement from Paul Ryan than it is to fund the Islamic rebels in Syria who ultimately went on to become ISIS? It’s more unacceptable to joke about a crying baby than it is to blatantly steal your party’s nomination?Gingrich has been watching too much TV.


  1. Gingrich is not a Trump friend. Gingrich is for Gingrich. The longer you observe him the sooner you find he will undermine anyone's campaign but his own.

  2. He was playing all nice until he wasn't picked as VP.
