Trump Expects The Cozy O’Reilly-Hannity Treatment From The Entire Media

In the closing fortnight of his campaign, Donald Trump is focused almost entirely on justifying his impending loss. His attempt to paint the entire electoral system as “fixed” went over like a lead balloon. He still mouths the non sequiturs. Dead people are on the voting rolls! People are registered in more than one state! Even on the right, very few people are buying it. To the contrary, Trump’s claims of a rigged election seem to have coincided with the bottom dropping out of his polls.
He is therefore reduced to whining — and sending his advisers out to whine — about the media.The Post reports on his Florida campaign swing:
During a discussion with farmers at Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market in Boynton Beach, Fla., Trump devoted nearly half of his seven-minute public remarks to criticizing the news media.
“I believe we’re actually winning,” he said, speaking in a thatched-roof structure adorned with decorative gourds. He asserted that the majority of public opinion polls, which show [Hillary] Clinton leading nationally and in most battleground states, reflect the “crooked system, the rigged system I’ve been talking about since I entered the race.”
“What they do is they show these phony polls where they look at Democrats, and it’s heavily weighted with Democrats, and then they’ll put on a poll where we’re not winning, and everybody says, ‘Oh they’re not winning,’ ” he added.
This is, in a word, nuts. Even his campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, conceded Sunday on “Meet the Press” that her candidate is behind. That doesn’t stop her from complaining that her candidate gets negative coverage, though, while hinting that she is advising him to stick to issues. (The implicit message is that he is messing up and she is not.) Trump’s increasingly unhinged communications adviser, Jason Miller, devotes his time to attacking the media as well.

Trump goes on every forum and takes the questions. He's done more interviews than any nominee in history, from either side. Trump has been overwhelmingly the most accessible of any presidential candidate in history. What else would you expect from the People's Champion.

You know cimbri (educated guess on my part) I'll bet that on at least 75% of your comments, you use terms like 'the peoples champion', will of the people, people's choice, etc, etc, to the point that if you don;t watch yourself, folks might mistake you for a Rusky. The only thing missing is a nice little hammer & sickle avatar.
