On Sunday night Donald Trump quit playing around and finally showed up at a gunfight with a bazooka. After days of being vilified by a media slime machine that is totally in the bag for Hillary, the embattled billionaire outsider went on the offensive. Trump absolutely pummeled the corrupt queen of the establishment and did battle with the biased moderators, at one point confronting CNN’s millionaire pretty boy over his refusal to ask questions about those damn emails. The best part however was when Trump told Hillary that if he wins the election that her fat ass would be going to jail where it belongs.
It was a yuuuge win for Trump as evident by the whining coming from the Washington Post Editorial Board.
The WAPO writes “The Post’s View A new low, even for Donald Trump”:
Has there been a more disturbing low in presidential politics?
“If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation,” Republican nominee Donald Trump threatened in the course of the second presidential debate Sunday night.
“It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,” Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton responded.
“Because you’d be in jail,” Mr. Trump shot back.
Mark the moment. A major-party presidential nominee is officially promising to lock up his political opponent, despite the fact that an impartial federal investigation concluded that no fair prosecutor would have charged Ms. Clinton in the matter of her e-mails. If anyone needed any more proof that Mr. Trump does not understand the meaning of rule of law as opposed to arbitrary rule of autocrat — that he would use the levers of the federal government in a vindictive, self-serving and corrupt manner — Mr. Trump provided it.
Of course Pravda on the Potomac would be beside themselves over Trump threatening to sic his Attorney General on the Clinton crime syndicate, the entire purpose of the WAPO and it’s vile, neocon-infested Editorial Board is to protect and coddle criminals in high places. The Post has become an apologist for government corruption and has been living off of it’s laurels for forty years since the now fat and gone to seed Bob Woodward helped to bring down Richard M. Nixon.
The other Clinton propaganda megaphone several hundred miles to the north – the New York Times – was also crying foul over Trump’s new aggressive demeanor that was unveiled onstage in St. Louis.
The Times’ Editorial Board sniffles “Mr. Trump Goes Low”:
Donald Trump boiled his decadent campaign down to one theme during the presidential debate on Sunday night: hatred of Hillary and Bill Clinton.
With knock-kneed Republican officeholders showing signs of summoning the nerve to desert him, Mr. Trump labored to demonize Hillary Clinton — blaming her even for his own failure to pay taxes — and to remind his core supporters that he is all that stands between her and the presidency.
If he were in charge, Mr. Trump told Secretary Clinton at one point, “You’d be in jail.”
When Mrs. Clinton called Mr. Trump out for his failure to apologize to the minorities, immigrants and women he’s offended, he responded by promising vengeance. Should he win, he said, he would unleash a special prosecutor to investigate her.
Sniffing and glowering, Mr. Trump prowled behind Mrs. Clinton as she presented herself again as the only adult on stage, the only one seeking to persuade the great majority of Americans that she shares their values and aspirations. Mr. Trump, by contrast, fell back on the tricks he has learned from his years in pro wrestling and reality television, making clear how deep his cynicism goes.
You have to get the idea that the establishment is shocked and on their heels today. The big knock-out punch of the now infamous 2005 “pussy” video is looking like another failure in a long line of them since Trump began to emerge from the pack. The early signs that the oligarchy was in big trouble was when a Sunday poll by Politico showed that despite the media onslaught and the stabs in the back from a cadre of Republican weasels that the actual voters weren’t affected by the ham-handed smear campaign.
Trump’s night was masterful, from the pre-debate psychological gambit when he held a news conference with the victims of Slick Willie’s sexual deviance until he took a meat axe to the queen herself, leaving the dishonest moderators slack-jawed and discombobulated.
Now he needs to keep pressing the attack, it was the Clintons who decided to take the low road in order to dodge discussion of the actual issues and it is incumbent upon Trump to turn it into a trail of tears.
