2. Even when Trump is enabled he manages to damage himself and others.

Hopefully and soon Lauer will realize he gave a scorpion a ride across the pond.

21. The secrets in war

At the State Department level, with war and all the constraints that surround it, a Secretary of State could and should be able to make moment by moment security decisions to decide what is classified and what is not.

Especially by Constitutional diplomacy laws, as conducting the business of the State Department at the national level.

It’s clear the whole mainstream media avoids this Constitution rational basis test making a mockery of the system. The system works yet the Media in this age is more of a Grinch helping to avoid the real issues.

I love this notion of emails and secrets yet now the media in chaos conversations wonking the public about war and inside tactics to prevent exposed secrets.

The next Congress giving the opposite party or same party war powers will also lead to timely and unredacted security issues published to the public after thirty days. For public consideration. Osama Bin Laden’s demise was the best.

Hillary being thoughtful in many respects to the media’s incredible flaw while serving the general public interest. This is one of the most interesting distinctions traversing the public air waves. Obvious to me after experience within an injury, then being fired, with the notion not to talk about the Bush family at the company is a real experience I need to write about.

Consider taxes should be imposed for such violations, or violators, it likely would transform into the fall of the status quo, similarly as the fall of the Soviet during the nineties yet America would have a cool wtf moment without a gun shot.

Or, and without a background operated ISIS, Republican Bush money that trickles to the citizen yet is handed over in chunky skids of real money to Arabs.

Bush money from George W. to the time of Prescott Bush always seems to be working within the enemy, against America. The Bush Bin Laden connection left out of politics the last century is a daunting disgrace of the both political and media… that is what is broken in America.

Oh, wait again, yet another question, "Do I get Mar-de-Lago for a weekend?"

A little pay for kiss ass happening here? How much money is going to media people under the table this campaign?

10. Matt Lauer's experience as an interviewer is on what is a morning, largely entertainment talk show,

despite also giving us news updates. His education is in "telecommunications", which is NOT really journalism. As a teacher, although only involved in journalism at that level, I had many students interested in going into "broadcast" (As opposed to "print," journalism). I also have a daughter who majored in (print) journalism. There is definitely a difference. Amazing that the most iconic pioneer ( inventor, largely} in "broadcast" journalism, Edward R. Murrow,was originally a radio journalist, whose college major was "Speech." but who had an overwhelming interest in politics.

12. Was Hillary there?

You all talk about the men? .. What did Hillary say? Trump Trump Trump.
His remarks are talked about and talked about.
What did she say? What?
The coverage of this is beyond awful on DU and the networks. All people know about Hillary is email and that is totally unfair.
She also should not get away with... go read my position on the internet... She has to talk but the media HAS to report as much of what she says as what he says. I'm fed up.

20. But I'll bet Rinse Penis thought he SMILED enough!!!

Reference: https://gma.yahoo.com/clinton-campaign-manager-robby-mook-says-concerning-trump-112007675--abc-news-topstories.html

Mook also responded to a tweet the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, sent out Wednesday night.

"This is what is so incredible and challenging for the Republicans. The fact that the only criticism they could have for Hillary Clinton is that she didn't smile enough at a very serious forum on our veterans, on our national security and on the job of commander in chief just tells you everything you need to know," Mook said.

22. CNN Loves Trump !!

Trump made half a dozen statements last night at the Commander-in-Chief Forum, which in all honesty, should have disqualified him from the Presidency. Such as:

# Trump trashed the US military
# Trump made a mockery of our Military Generals
# Trump lied about his position on Iraq ... again
# Trump lied about the CIA briefing
# Trump professed his love for Putin ... again
# Trump blamed military sexual assaults on the victims

These are just a few of Trump's "WACKY" statements from last night in less than 30 minutes while fielding softball questions from Matt Lauer who was probably interviewing for show on the future Trump TV Network.
And today, all CNN is doing is talking about Hillary's statements about the emails and her statement that she will not want to place ground troops in a war against ISIS preferring instead to use other military means to defeat them once and for all.
Shame on CNN.They're trying to emulate Fox News while pretending to be impartial. America is not stupid and can see what is going on. No wonder CNN viewership is on the decline and their hosts are made a mockery on all the comedy channels.

Complete success!

That's what his supporters in the media will be saying all day long

Quoting his stupid nonsense as if it were genius

And his rubes will be lapping it up.

But that photo of Matt and chump was genius and absolutely accurate

All the non-cable morning shows are fluff. They are expected to "ease" us into the work day after not enough sleep.
