And then, the TV numbers came in.
Trump’s low-turnout rally in Tulsa melted down the media. 8 million viewers on Fox News eclipsed some 2 million on rival networks CNN and MSNBC. It was the highest-rated Saturday night for Fox News ever and, with advertisers, it was the most valued. Numbers don’t lie.
This supposed “White power” retirement rally in Florida is a rouse. The man’s words were sarcastic, as a provocative, comical comeback against some venomous parade trolls. At the pro-Trump golf cart procession, the anti-Trump crowd hawked and jeered. One lady jumped in front of an oncoming golf cart to force a collision, then demanded to see “the officer”, who never showed, until her own peers pulled her back and let the man pass. He stuck out his tongue at her. What evil!
Adding to last week’s list of reasons Trump will be reelected—mainly that he has neither defied campaign promises nor shown gross incompetence nor negligence—the opponent is boring. Joe Biden stirs the suspense of a sloth, much like Romney and McCain, whose lack of anything tellable successfully reelected Obama.
More than that, the anti-Trumpists seem histrionic. They don’t show the overly-dramatized performance of a group that is not losing. There’s more to proving a lack of minority support than someone convincingly saying, “Where are the minorities!?” But, anti-Trumpists don’t think so. If, indeed, minorities didn’t support Trump, those emphatic, emotional, convincing performances wouldn’t be necessary. Over-done theater from the Left isn’t the strongest cause for a Trump re-election, but it is the most convincing evidence this week.
