Media Lies and the Never-Trump Sheep

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The Never-Trump crowd says that by Donald Trump receiving the Republican Party nomination, it secures a win for Hillary Clinton in November.  If Hillary Clinton wins the election, they will say, "See, we told you so."  To be honest, I don't know what the future holds.  I don't know if Trump will win, or lose.  We aren't even sure what to think about Donald Trump, to be honest.  We are told he's a racist, he's a nationalist, he's an arrogant bastard who will be a Republican version of Barack Obama, wielding as much unconstitutional power at the helm of the executive branch as would his Democrat Party counterparts.  And, based on the information we are getting from the mainstream media, we are not even sure if he even resembles what a Republican should be.

One thing I do know is that the liberal left media lies.  They are untruthful.  They are full of crap.

Of the original 17 Republican Candidates, Mr. Trump was number 15 on my list.  I liked Scott Walker out the chute.  Rand Paul fits my constitutional attitude best, but I was doubtful regarding him because of a few strange things that sounded more like his father Ron than I would prefer.  Ted Cruz, a fantastic Senator, and a Tea Party guy, is not eligible, so early on I was not one to necessarily get behind his campaign.  That said, had he gotten the nod, I would have voted for him, because an ineligible Ted Cruz would still be better than an eligible Hillary Clinton.  For the first time in my life, had Cruz won the GOP nomination, I would have voted against the Constitution to save the Constitution.

If I were to only listen to the mainstream media, I would probably agree with the Never-Trump crowd.  The liberal left media, and their cohorts who claim to be conservative (but leave me wondering often) have painted for us an image of Donald Trump that is both horrible, and dangerous.  If you were to listen to them, he's as bad as Hillary Clinton, if not worse, and has no chance to win because he is some kind of crazy, idiot, foot-in-his-mouth nutcase.  Oh, and he's a racist, they say, too.

Have you noticed that Trump has never been considered a racist until he decided to run against Democrats?

Why should I believe the media?  They lie, and they have ever since my birth fifty years ago.  Just see Charles Wiley's website (who I plan to have on my radio program next Saturday) to see how they lied about Vietnam.

So, who is the real Trump?  Is he worth supporting?  Is he worth voting for?

As I am willing to admit, he was definitely not my first choice.  But, because I understand how dangerous another presidency under a member of the Clinton Crime Family can be, or under any democrat for that matter, I am willing to vote for Donald Trump.

Since I have decided I am going to stand behind Trump, I decided I needed to learn more about him.  I needed to ignore the media, and their lies, and look deeper.

As a businessman, Trump has been impressive.  As a father he has been exemplary.  But, how is he as a leader?

A vast majority of those who have known him, and have worked with him, have said there are few better motivators and men of compassion than Donald Trump.  He's the real deal, they say.

In my political circle of friends and colleagues the feelings about Trump have been mixed.  What has impressed me is that three people I know who were pro-Cruz and very loudly against Trump, who got to meet Mr. Trump after he won the GOP nod, said that meeting the man meant everything to them.  He is nothing like what the media portrays him to be, they told me.  And now, they are supporters of his campaign.

The media is having a field-day with Trump because he is inexperienced in the political arena.  He's learning.  They say he's a quick learner.  I certainly hope so.  Right now, he seems to easily fall for the gotcha garbage, and he says dumb things in response (sometimes).  He's being him.  He doesn't know how to be a fake politician, and he's trying to answer the best he knows how.  That's one of the reasons his supporters like him.  He's real.

The Never-Trump folks have refused to give him a chance.  They have bought into the media's narrative.  We know the media is untruthful, so why would anyone listen without looking deeper at who the man is?

Is Trump wonderful?  No.  I am not sure if he'll win.  I am not sure if he would be a great president.  I do know, however, that he's not Hillary Clinton.  Unlike Hillary, Trump loves this country, and he wants to do what is best for this country.  And, to be honest, like it or not, a refusal to vote for Trump in November by Never-Trump people who would normally vote Republican is a vote for Hillary.  So, if she wins, rather than saying "I told you so," how about you guys look in the mirror so you can see who is really to blame for the fall of America at the hands of hard-left Marxist Democrats.
