Here's a mystery. Donald Trump is always eager to attack the media when they make inaccurate statements despite being the king of inaccurate statements himself. Now recently he has, supposedly, been "reading"from a teleprompter, making him seem—I say seem—saner. So why has he not ridiculed and chided the many comedians and pundits who recently suggested that he can't read? While there's no question that he's an ignorant man who says "ath-ah-leet" and "antiSem-eh-tic", it appears—I say appears—that he can read. So why has he not come out, guns blazing, against all those who suggested otherwise? It's a perfect opportunity to label them all liars out to get him. (What more could a paranoid personality ask for?) And if he can read why is there so much evidence to the contrary? Or am I reading to much into this?
I am a retired copywriter. For 40 years I wrote for major agencies and developed some campaigns you would know. Like most writers, I love to give my opinion, and since I am so familiar with advertising this is the area I chose to comment on.
Actually I'm not that cranky. I am as fond
of as many things as I detest. But since most people only hear what one doesn't like, I might as well go with cranky.For my other blog idleideasfactory I am putting out there things I have written and ideas for books, screenplays, stage plays, and even products that I will not have time in life to follow through on. If
anyone can profit from them, be my guest.
