I had an interesting memory today about the presidential elections. First of all, I think that the networks, notably MSNBC, were greatly responsible for electing Trump. I say now, and said then, that they gave him much more coverage than Hillary, and they did then what they still do now: vacillate on whether he's an idiot or "presidential". But forgetting all that, what I recalled yesterday was this: His supreme confidence that he would win the presidency, even in the face of remarkable odds. I recall him telling his thousands of deplorables that he knew he was going to win when all the signs pointed to a Hillary victory. Even at the time I found his confidence strangely suspicious. I think I know why. Act the time I feel certain he was in cahoots with Russians. In addition he had Giuliani working with his government connections, notably Comey, to make sure the already falsely vilified Clinton would face even more suspicion. No doubt about it. The election was rigged. Even I don't think Americans are stupid enough to wilingly elect this brainless bonehead.
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.
