Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this Winning yet? – ABC found out on Wednesday night that maybe being just another media mouthpiece for the Democrat Party isn’t such a great deal after all. The reboot of a Donald Trump-loving Roseanne scored the highest ratings for any network comedy in years, as 18 million Americans tuned in to watch the comedic fireworks.
By comparison, this season’s other big network comedy reboot, of NBC’s Trump-hating Will & Grace, debuted to a comparatively paltry audience of 10 million viewers last fall. This coming fall, we will see if CBS can learn from ABC’s example with its own reboot of Murphy Brown (I actually thought Candice Bergen had died. Guess not.). The safe bet is that CBS will have learned nothing, and that Murphy Brown will be the same old, tiresome Republican bashing vehicle it was 30 years ago.
Which is fine because, at the end of the day, who really cares?
Ok, so, several readers have in recent days asked me why I haven’t talked about the whole Stormy Daniels thing, so I guess I ought to address that here.
It is true that I have avoided using any precious space here talking about a porn star and her allegations that she had a torrid love affair with President Trump a dozen years ago. The reason for that is simple: It doesn’t matter.
Look, Stormy Daniels is to be pitied – she is a very pathetic public figure who has led the most awful life imaginable to this point – but that doesn’t mean she matters in the grand scheme of things. What she has been for the last month or so is a very convenient excuse for the sleaze bags who run CNN and MSNBC to run the same, repeating, titillating photos of a voluptuous woman repeatedly, hour after hour, day after day, week after week, as a means of demeaning the sitting President of the United States and the office he holds.
She is, in a word, convenient. She is a convenient tool to be used in support of the media narrative that Donald Trump is not fit to hold the office he currently holds, and once her utility has run its course with the cynical creeps who run the nation’s fake national news media outlets, she will be dropped like a hot potato by her current media facilitators.
There are several reasons why she doesn’t matter:
- First, name one person you know who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because they thought Trump was a choir boy. Go ahead, I’ll wait…Ok, can’t do it, right? Right. That’s my point. Nobody – and I do mean NOBODY – voted for Trump because he had a great history of marital fidelity. Matter of fact, everybody who voted for Trump did so in spite of the fact that he had gone through two divorces and had likely cheated on his current wife. These facts of his life were well known, and 63 million Trump voters decided they just do not care.
- Second, the Democrats and fake journalists using Stormy Daniels to go after Trump have zero moral authority to do so. These are, by and large, the very same fake journalists and Democrats who spent Bill Clinton’s entire second term trying to convince the public that oral sex is not sex, and a sitting President banging a 23 year-old intern in the Oval Office just did not matter. Sorry guys, the whole “Presidents should be as pure as the driven snow” ship has sailed, and you’re the ones who hoisted the mainsail on that one.
- Third, this is all old stuff. Again, the alleged affair Ms. Daniels talks about supposedly took place a full decade before Trump even announced his presidential candidacy. If we weren’t supposed to be concerned about a sitting President conducting affairs in the Oval Office, why in the world should we be worried about a relationship between two consenting adults that happened during the George W. Bush Administration?
- Fourth, please don’t give me any feminist crap, ok? Again, we’re talking about what is an alleged affair between two consenting adults. Bill Clinton was credibly accused of outright rape by two different women – Juanita Broderick and Kathleen Willey – and the reaction of the feminist crowd was to vilify the women, not the dominant male who was abusing them. No one is accusing Trump of doing anything the women involved did not agree to do.
So, sorry all you liberal hypocrites, but this is just a non-issue, a media obsession that is doing no harm at all to President Trump, as evidenced by his job approval numbers, which have held steady throughout this media-generated non-scandal.
Stormy Daniels is a sad, pathetic figure who just doesn’t matter. And I won’t be talking about her again, so don’t bother to ask. Thanks.
Just another day in Stormy Daniels doesn’t matter America.
