Donald, stop playing with the world as it's your own personal toy chest
So today, Tuesday, March 22, 2016, I was awoken with the sad news that yet another ISIL inspired attack had occurred. This time in Brussels, at least 31 people have been killed in another terrorist attack. And how sad is this, the worst part of the entire thing for me is that I'm more upset about Donald Trump spouting off nonsense via a phone on a national news program then I am about the 31 victims.
Its bad enough that the man drowns out everything in his wake on television. I mean, instead of broadcasting Bernie Sanders speech after a big vote was counted, we the audience instead were thrilled to watch an empty stage where Donald Trump "was about to go on". Talk about a waste of air time, and I'm not discussing when he finally arrived.
Somehow, the media has allowed his practice of calling in to discuss todays 'important' update from him to become his standard free advertising for his campaign. While all the other candidates  have to wait their turns for air time and pay millions of dollars in fees to put up commercials promoting themselves or attacking their opponents, otherwise to put it flatly, the voters wouldn't know they were even in the race. But Donald Trump gets to talk, via a phone and talk for minutes if not hours. I'm wondering if he gets paid for 'these' appearances. Talk about a racket. And we wonder why he got so high in the polls? Thanks media for creating this monster.
Its like his tweets, the other night, CNN actually had a segment discussing his latest tweets. The funny thing was, as the segment was occurring, the Donald was tweeting and they began to read each new one as if it was "breaking news" I sat back watching with my mouth open in stunned disbelief. The hysterical part for me was, I bet Donald was watching CNN and he was tweeting to see if it got on the air. I simply couldn't believe it. Somehow this man has tweaked the mindset of the media. Turned them into mindless drones, just because, supposedly its news or helps with their rating, I've heard both excuses.
Now I can understand them taking a call once in a while, especially if something newsworthy is occurring. Say, Donald announces he's dropping out of the race. But, to have each call made out to be an "exclusive interview" with a Presidential candidate, when all he's doing is repeating the same old talking points is honestly obscene.
We are, excuse me, the world is, under attack by a band of religious lunatics, bent on transforming our world into whatever the Hell they believe their Heaven should be. For the first time in my life, I actually believe these nut jobs are capable of doing real damage to our World. At least the World that I'm aware of, that I think of everyday, Europe, The United States, The Middle East. Did I say, The United States, good, bad or whatever, ISIL has transformed how our world is discussed. Seemingly changing borders, well at least changing the political talking points on the road to the White House.
Well, today I think is the day this should all stop. Sadly I'm just discussing Donald's free calls.
After hearing the news of the murders in Brussels, and seeing the video of some of it, I had the unfortunate pleasure of listening to Donald spout off nonsense. Wait, let me rewrite. Spout off dangerous rhetoric about torturing our enemies. We should change the laws. blah, blah, blah. Sadly nothing that he hasn't said before.
But the man is now running for President , let me repeat that… the man is the leading Republican candidate for President, and could seriously be our next President.  And shouldn't be given free airtime to spout off dangerous rhetoric especially when he could be in his PJs while doing it. He should be in the studio so the 'news' people could actually confront him with his bull to his face, and not on the phone. I'm sorry, his words matter now. What he says matters. Millions of people have voted for him an millions more will be.  Not a few nut jobs  but the majority of voters in the lost party formally known at The Republicans. Sad to write this, but that is the truth.  
Unlike many, I didn't find, even the beginning of our new National nightmare, the concept of a Presidential Trump very funny. Sorry, I've never found it funny when people fall or trip. I don't laugh at other people's mishaps. And when I see a charlatan bamboozle a nation starving for answers. Who have been brainwashed by the enemies of the state, oh sorry, thats just my opinion, I meant to write FOX FAUX NEWS… that all Government is bad, at least by those lying cheating people in Washington, oh I'those lying cheating Democrats, the Republicans are saints… if you believe their spin. I'm sorry, I mean watching him spout off the worst vile, racist, close to nazi rhetoric. And seeing people's worst traits rise to the surface, like a bad 1950's film noir cold war drama, mixed with scenes from V for Vendetta, as seen  through the eyes of a bad racist white southern town, makes me want to scream. Hearing his unfiltered nonsense, simply should not be allowed to air, especially while he's running for President.
I guess the only thing good about him spouting his filth is, we get to see how he would react as the President. So I guess thank you media for being his whipping post. For allowing his to use you. Well keep being used, and I'll stop watching.
Just one man's opinion
