Ann Coulter writes,
Reviewing the state of the presidential race, I see that very little has changed for the past year. Every few weeks, the media roll out a new Trump “scandal” that has already been thoroughly covered, day in, day out, for the last 15 months.
In fact, all of the shocking new Trump scandals were aired in the very first GOP presidential debate, where he was asked seven questions about the following charges:
(1) He is mean to women.
(2) He is mean to Mexicans.
(3) He said nice things about Obamacare. (Since dropped by the media in order to help Hillary avoid the subject.)
(4) He is corrupt.
(5) He is a bad businessman.
(6) He is not a Republican. (Also since dropped — Hillary's losing enough Democrats to Trump without reminding them that he's not a “real Republican.”)
(7) His “tone.”
All that's already been priced into the Trump brand. What new results do the media expect from telling us that Trump not only insulted Rosie O'Donnell, but also insulted Hispanic Mattress Girl, Alicia Machado: baby mama to a Mexican drug lord?
…But according to the Times, Trump was “derid(ing)” the Khans when he went on “Good Morning America” and called the snarling Muslim a “nice guy,” wished him luck, wondered why his wife didn't say anything, and talked about the reasons Americans might want to hit the pause button on mass Muslim immigration.
To wit, Trump said:
“Well, I would say, we have had a lot of problems with radical Islamic terrorism, that's what I'd say. We have had a lot of problems where you look at San Bernardino, you look at Orlando, you look at the World Trade Center, you look at so many different things. You look at what happened to the priest over the weekend in Paris, where his throat was cut, 85-year-old, beloved Catholic priest. You look at what happened in Nice, France, a couple of weeks ago. I would say, you gotta take a look at that, because something is going on, and it's not good.”
I understand why the media are upset that Trump mentioned these notable contributions of Muslim immigrants, but unless I don't know the country at all anymore, I do not believe a majority of Americans minded one bit.
Polls showed a post-convention bounce for Hillary before Trump had said word one about Khan. Perhaps their nonsense headlines about Trump attacking a GOLD STAR FAMILY also helped them in the short run.
But as soon as the public found out that it was this specific family and, also, that Trump didn't attack them, voters weren't mad at Trump, but they sure were with the media.
