Donald Trump and The Uphill Fight for President


Donald Trump
     For several months now I have watched like many Americans as Donald Trump has stormed the banks of the Republican National Party in his bid to become our next president. One would have to be blind, deaf, and dumb not to see that the media is not his friend. Although they do avidly engage, as those who believe in his message, their biased contempt for him is unapologetic and unprofessional. Rule number one for any journalist is to report the facts and do not take sides, yet this is exactly what they have done.
     Eager for the revenue he and his events bring, the media greedily hurries to follow his every move and then sits back and criticizes him with scathing commentary that would have a Diva bawling for mercy. Donald Trump is many things; admittedly not all good, thin-skinned however is NOT one of them.
You know the mean girl,eyebrow raised and I got ya look. 
Always has her own agenda
and wants to hit below the belt.
From the onset, he was mocked, ridiculed by the very journalists who have put both microphone and camera in his face for the past 30 years. The media has steadfastly refused to treat him as a candidate despite the tens of millions of dollars he has lost in personal endorsements and business revenue due to his entering this race for president. During the first debate with a decidedly “Mean Girl” look, Megan Kelly asked by implication about his negative stand on women and his ongoing fight with Rosie O’Donnel would make him a good president. Trump answered and then shot back via Twitter after the debate fighting back in one of the few methods available to him for an inappropriate question. (Not a bad move.)
     Despite the media’s ongoing mockery, critical reporting, and contempt, Donald Trump has thus far prevailed. Gaining supporters across the country from people who are fed up with opinion journalism and a president who has openly apologized to the world for no good reason. Between Hillary and her multitude of scandals that have been wiped under the carpet, and an overabundance of executive orders by the current president it is little wonder that Trump stepped up to the plate. To be blunt, we need someone with a pair in the white house who is willing to fight for all of us.
     No man is perfect, but Trump has brought to the front the real issues that are on all of our minds. As parents, voters, and as citizens of this country we all can see that things need to change. Donald Trump has an actual plan, not the same old rhetoric that comes out of career politicians like Bush, Christie, and Rubio. Jeb Bush stood on a stage in front of 24 million viewers and said, “My brother kept us safe.” I disagree.
     Donald Trump has it right in this you have only to listen to his words. The then president handled a bad situation; he didn’t protect us because the reality is 9/11 happened. People died in New York, and on two separate planes that crashed because of terrorists. As someone who grew up 20 minutes from New York, the attack of 9/11 devastated us all and for many it was much more personal.
      History has told us at least 6 of these terrorists were here illegally, because of laws we chose not to enforce. That isn’t a reflection on how the aftermath was handled, or how President Bush dealt with the events as they unfolded. I do think he did us all proud, but more importantly we as a country pulled together and helped each other. We wept, we prayed, and we rebuilt making sure to remember those who perished. That is what makes America great, we know how to pull together.
     With all the unrest and damage, our current president has created in the Middle East and here at home we are at a precept looking over the cliff at this very moment. We need someone who isn’t afraid to take control, to be strong. If we are going to get through this and survive as a country, it is imperative we make some hard choices. We need someone like Donald Trump, and I say that as an opinion. What we don’t need is someone who is going to drag us right back into the same political elitist mess we must all currently deal with as those in Washington bleed our country dry for their personal gains.
     Trump was smart enough to use the web to reach Americans. Like a chess player, he has made smart moves minimizing his spending to reach his goal. That for me is someone I will sit up and notice. I can only hope that the News Media will grow up and stop being so thin skinned, the world we all live in is not the fantasy they keep pushing. Instead of acting like a group of church ladies scandalized by every word that comes out of Trump’s mouth try doing your job. Report the news without your opinion or your company’s political leanings.
     The world is much harsher than that and candidates like Donald Trump & Ben Carson understand the truth or they wouldn’t be running for president. People don’t turn away from what they love to do something that is going to be hell on earth for them unless there is a greater reason. Perhaps it is time for the media to put their big boy pants on and admit that these candidates are here to stay and need to be, because the status quo won’t work anymore.

     Trumps popularity isn't deminishing. Despite the media and the GOP, in fact its growing. 

Its More then Just a Dream

As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us.  Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
