Why Does The Media Hate trump?

Because they’re being forced to help him win the Presidency.

Many people forget trump ran for President in 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012. These trial-balloon attempts were lame jokes fueled by his massive ego, his paranoid “birther” beliefs, and probably a desire to boost his television show.  He’s still a joke but this FIFTH run is deadly serious. And the media is largely responsible for it.

Why?

trump is good television which means good ratings which mean higher network revenue. And the mad scramble for media dollars is more fiercely fought today than it ever was.

Since the average politician is just a boring piece of shit, an outstanding turd like trump with his outrageous statements and simpleton ideas excites the viewing public. They’d love to understand the world in superficial terms with obvious problems and clear, definite solutions – just like shows end on TV! (“Duuh, a big wall will keep out illegal aliens and drugs…”) 

The public’s general ignorance and fears are verbalized by trump who then throws up easily-understandable bromides to make “America great again.” He knows it’s horseshit.  The media knows it’s horseshit and they’re being manipulated – but now they must seriously cover his babble because he’ll be the Republican nominee.  They hate the fact they help put him there.

Good television makes good ratings – but lousy government.

Thank A Grill This Weekend

Are you having a cookout this weekend? Many Americans do because it’s a tradition – and you “do” traditions whether you want to or not. 

The husband (usually) drags out the Weber grill, fills it with old charcoal (vintage: Memorial Day, 2012), dumps on too much lighter fluid (a definite lack of creativity naming this product), lights it, and then jumps back from the 2-foot flames.

“I’ll be ready for those burgers in about 10-minutes!” he shouts to his eye-rolling wife who is just thankful he didn’t set the house on fire. Then Dad grabs another beer – his fourth. The kids groan when they see a backyard inferno like they haven’t seen since the newscasts of the Calgary wildfires. Ahh, charred rawhide for dinner again this year. The charcoal briquettes might be easier to eat.

“MOM! Can we go to McDonalds?”

”No!” she yells back. “We’re a family – and families cook and eat outdoors together on Memorial Day. It’s important to your Father.”

Louder groans. “Why?” one yells.

“God friggin’ knows…,” she thinks as she scoops salads onto serving plates from plastic containers bought at the supermarket.

“Go set the table! Use the paper plates and plastic silverware.” More groans. Even before the kids find the long lost picnic supplies, the wind picks up and a new species of aggressive fly is attracted to the smell of burning meat. Finally the family is seated. Paper plates are held down by mayonnaisey salads and one hand – as the other tries to shoo away the unrelenting pests.

And despite the fact that everything on the grill is now uniformly burnt to a crispy black, and everyone is miserable, Dad asks the punch line question, “How would you like your burger?”
