Friday News: “Hillary Clinton’s Alt-Right Speech Isolated and Destroyed Donald Trump”; Tim Kaine on Stephen Colbert


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Friday, August 26.

  • Two-term Va. LG Bill Bolling (R):

    This is my problem with Donald Trump, or at least one of them. He’s all over the place on these issues. One day he says one thing, and the next day he walks it back and says something else. You never really know what he believes. This tells me that 1) Trump does not have an in depth understanding of the complexity of these issues, and 2) he has no core principles that help form his policies. Neither are very desirable in someone who wants to be President. I’m certainly no fan of Hillary Clinton, but stuff like this makes it very difficult for me to even think about supporting Trump. This whole campaign is like a bad dream.

  • The Washington (Com)Post is like an Onion parody of “objective journalism.” In this case, they do the “both sides” thing, also instead of saying what the FACTS are, simply say that each candidate accused the other candidate of something really bad (in this case, bigotry/racism). Yet if the (Com)Post actually was about “objective journalism,” the headline would read “Hillary Clinton uses Donald Trump’s OWN WORDS and actions to ACCURATELY characterize him as running a campaign based on bigotry/racism, while Trump has ZERO basis for accusing Hillary Clinton of being a bigot.” Instead, the cowardly (Com)Post chooses to hide behind its faux-“objective journalism” stance…to the detriment of its readers and its own ever-lasting disgrace.

  • The Washington (Com)Post’s “Express” is even worse – massive false equivalency between: a) very well-reported (including numerous articles like this one in the Washington (Com)Post; and well-founded connections between Trump, Paul Manafort, etc. and the Kremlin; b) absolutely ZERO evidence for any Clinton health problems – total conspiracy theory in that case.


  • So, basically, the Washington Post is calling its own employees conspiracy theorists
