The Source of Trump’s Appeal


We hear all the time from the Democrat news media—which I know from more than 35 years professional experience includes most television and newspapers–that Trump is a bigot who is untrained and unrestrained and therefore too loosey-goosey to be president. Then we think of his opponent.

“You probably thought Trump was the bigot in this contest,” writes Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert cartoon strip, “until Clinton called half of Trump’s supporters a ‘basket of deplorables.’ That’s the point at which observers started to see a pattern. Trump has been consistently supportive of American citizens of all types – with the exception of the press and his political opponents. The main targets of Trump’s rhetoric are the nations that compete against us. In stark contrast, Clinton turned her hate on American citizens. That’s the real kind of hate. Trump is more about keeping America safe and competing effectively in the world. That is literally the job of president.”

Exactly and that’s why he is surging ahead of her, why his rallies are larger and more enthusiastic, and why the recent spate of pipe-bomb and knife attacks will help him win, probably by a landslide.
