So, along with a great group of friends and patriots in Lake Worth, FL and around America, I watched the much anticipated great debate last night. I have to admit that I was at first less than thrilled by what I saw because I really wanted to see Mr. Trump come out swinging and take advantage of the multiple opportunities he had to nail his opponent to the wall.
I didn’t like the way Lester Holt was so in the tank for Trump’s opponent that he didn’t bring up any hot button issues such as Benghazi, Extortion 17, emails, the foundation, foreign money, the Iran deal, or any of a myriad of issues that any journalist worth his or her salt should have asked; instead choosing to harp on Mr. Trump’s taxes, the ‘birther’ thing, and other non-issues related to Mr. Trump.
All day long I asked myself why Mr. Trump didn’t swing more often and harder, or even just take over the show and start asking the questions himself; instead of just taking it all on the chin. Then it hit me…!
Mr. Trump brilliantly bit his tongue a lot for a number of reasons. In doing so, he showed a very presidential temperament, he allowed yet another biased, leftist journalist to show their true stripes, and he now has everyone sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see what he’s going to do leading up to and during the next debates as he closes on his November victory.
Think about it; why should he go all in with the darts and arrows quite this early when it makes much more sense to lower the boom on all of her shenanigans just before the election when it will be fresh on people’s mind..? There is plenty of time fillet and fry her over the next several weeks, and there is a ton of bad news following her around like a rabid dog trying to bite her in the pant suit to help with that.
In short, the guy that won this writer’s vote way back in the early spring of 2015 during a speech at the Tea Party Convention in South Carolina before he even announced he was running still has my vote and full support after a brilliant tactical evening.
Now, if only we could get a real moderator on the stage. Some of the short list of names I’ve come up with are Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Michael Savage, Dan Bongino, Mark Levin, Eric Bolling, Jeanine Pirro, and Ann Coulter to name a few.
Anyway, that’s my take on the first debate. Stay tuned America and watch as a brilliant man turns up the heat as only he can over the next several weeks and slides to the biggest political upset in US History.
