Last night Mike Huckabee announced he was not running for president. After he spoke, Donald Trump appeared. Last night was Mike Huckabee’s night but Donald Trump had a good night also. Tonight is Donald Trump’s night too.
We discussed the repercussions of whatever Mike Huckabee decided to do last night. Before the Huckabee show began last night we speculated that Donald Trump might benefit very much from the announcement. We speculated that the meeting between Trump and Huckabee from week’s ago was not merely an opportunity to discuss diets.
Lo and behold, Donald Trump appeared immediately after Mike Huckabee to wish his best to Huckabee and his family. Big Media and a lot of websites decided to deceive the public and erase Donald Trump from the night’s festivities. Here is how Pollitico covered last night:
“And sure enough, the Baptist pastor-turned-politician-turned-media-personality had scarcely finished his announcement before a measure of respect was given: Jon Huntsman and Tim Pawlenty quickly sent out emails praising their would-have-been rival before the show even ended.
Huckabee’s supporters now become one of the most coveted voting blocs in the still-unsettled Republican contest.
The former governor was at the top of early polling in Iowa and South Carolina and also faring well in many national surveys. His strength can be partly chalked up to name recognition this far out from voting, but his demographic appeal leaves a sizable void in the field: there is now no well-known candidate for Christian conservatives and middle-to-lower income Republicans.”
Is history erasing Stalin running Big Media? Picture this, a long awaited announcement by Huckabee and Donald Trump appears immediately after but Politico, typical of most if not all Big Media outlets, discussed that Huntsman and Pawlenty sent Huckabee their best wishes. Donald Trump disappeared from the Stalinist Big Media coverage.
Big Media will protect Barack Obama from Donald Trump now by attempting to erase Donald Trump from news coverage. It’s what the JournoListers did to protect Barack Obama during the Reverend Wright “God Damn America!” scandal – swear a compact to erase Jeremiah Wright and protect their golden calf.
Republican candidates for the nomination for president will cheer the JournoLister Big Media’s Stalinist attempt to erase Donald Trump but they will live to regret it.
Donald Trump is not going away. Too many people know him and Trump is expert at grabbing attention. Furthermore Fox News is not going to follow the JournoLister Stalinists. In late 2009 we discussed why Hillary Clinton could not take on Big Media the way Sarah Palin has. Briefly, Hillary Clinton did not have a Fox News at her back. MSNBC was Barack Obama’s Praetorian Guard so Hillary was attacked from all sides.
Donald Trump has the same firepower as Sarah Palin with Fox News and he additional has the cachet from his hit TV show on NBC. Notice that it was Donald Trump not Sarah Palin that followed Huckabee last night. We won’t speculate as to why. Donald Trump was apparently provided two scripts to read and once Huckabee’s decision was announced, Trump read the appropriate message. But why not other Fox News personalities?
Which brings us to tonight. The finale of Celebrity Apprentice is on tonight at 9:00 eastern time. The first of two parts is tonight, part II is next Sunday. “All of the former Celebrity Apprentice winners return to help narrow the final four to the final two!” We’ve already speculated that Trump, if he is to announce something, will make the actual announcement on Monday or Tuesday May 23/24. Tonight Trump might or might not announce something. We discussed this earlier as well:
Donald Trump managed to somehow squeeze that colloquy into a show that presumably had been taped long ago (in November). Somehow that episode and the uproar it caused (O’Donnell and others went nuts) has been forgotten already. If Trump managed to edit that show, couldn’t he just as easily update the final episode?
Republican/conservative HotAir chortled today that Trump had lied because according to NBC there is no Trump “announcement” in the final episode of the show. The usually astute Andrew Malcolm likewise mocked Trump because the final episode had been taped long ago (last November). Somehow all those laughing reports that Trump was engaged in a publicity stunt forgot the recent show (presumably also taped months ago but updated recently) in which Trump outraged the MSNBC crowd.
Fasten your seatbelts! Trump in one, two….
