    You know, this last one is more important than generally recognized I think. I for one am tired of rehearsed debates where the press openly speculates "will he make a gaffe?" These people have created a system where a small mistake is seen as reason for destroying a candidacy.
    Years ago, many years ago, in a college class we were discussing Richard Nixon and I was flabbergasted to learn that he is seen to have lost the election (by .2%) because of his appearance in an important debate. He had 5:00 shadow and he sweated under television lights while Kennedy was considered more photogenic. People who listened to the debate on the radio gave Nixon a clear win but more people watched it on TV. Is that any way to select a President?
    Donald Trump was raw, unscripted, real and shoot from the hip. Refreshing.
    And the press has abdicated its role in any form of campaign coverage. For instance when Hillary Clinton was asked a question she replied "this is nice chocolate..try some"..grinned and went into a seizure. The reporters reacted with terror then adopted sycophantic laughter nodded their heads in adoration. Nobody said "who asked about chocolate answer the damn question" as they should have.
    So even with gaffes its nice to have a man who speaks straight to us without rehearsal. By the way he was pilloried because he refused to spend days rehearsing for debates.

    You know that the left has reached the lowest depths of despair when they are forced to acknowledge the resounding success of the first year of the Trump Administration.
    President Trump continues to win. He beat the GOP in the primaries. He beat Hitlery and the Dumbocrats in the election. He beat the media. He beat the odds.
