Donald Trump is the creation of the conservative media entertainment complex

TrumpFingerDonald Trump is the creation of the conservative media entertainment complex. For years the conservative media was more than happy to give air time to “The Donald” to engage in Birther conspiracy theories and Obama Derangement Syndrome hate mongering. This is what the conservative media entertainment complex audience demanded, and “The Donald” provided it to them. This is how he built his fan base.

As Jon Stewart of The Daily Show recently noted about the GOP establishment hand-wringing over the GOP having been “hijacked” by Donald Trump, his advice to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus was “Run Reince! The call is coming from inside the house!” Donald Trump is not the problem, it is the Tea-Publican base voters.

Now the monster created by the conservative media is turning on his creator and terrorizing the villagers. The puritanical high priests of conservative orthodoxy, Roger Ailes’ FAUX News, host of the The Hunger Games GOP Presidential primary debate, tried to kill their creation. Lindsey Graham: Trump questions were an ‘inquisition,’ not a debate.

But “The Donald” lashed out at FAUX News fem-bot Megyn Kelly for her oppo-research questions designed to inflict damage on him. Trump was defended by conservative media’s misogynist-in-chief, Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh rips Fox News for ‘war on women’ question: “The last place I ever thought I would see it continued is Fox News,” the hate radio host said.  FAUX News struck back. Fox News panel blasts Trump’s debate complaints, and Rupert Murdoch praises Fox moderators amid Trump complaints.

The problem for the GOP establishment is that the instant polls, where Tea-Publicans vote online after the debate, showed “The Donald” crushing his opponents. Trump won both the Drudge and the Time poll with a whopping 47% in both polls. In the Drudge poll only Ted Cruz was able to get above 10% and in the Time poll both Rubio and Carson cracked 10%. This pleased “The Donald” greatly. Trump slams Fox News, praises Drudge.

UPDATE: According to the latest NBC News Online Poll conducted by SurveyMonkey, Trump is at the top of the poll with 23 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz was next on the list with 13 percent. The overnight poll was conducted for 24 hours from Friday evening into Saturday.

Then Prominent sexist Erick Erickson said Donald Trump’s sexism has no place in the GOP and disinvited “The Donald” from the RedState Gathering of GOP candidates on Saturday.  Talk about the kettle calling the pot black! “The Donald” lashed out at Erick Erickson. Trump campaign: ‘Only a deviant’ would misunderstand Kelly remark. He’s got you there, Erick — you certainly resemble that remark! The Guy Is A Loser’: Donald Trump Slams Erick Erickson For Being A Bigger Misogynist Than Him.

“The Donald” then doubled-down, saying “I said nothing wrong whatsoever,” ‘I cherish women’. It’s that loser J.E.B.(!) Bush who has a problem with women! It’s huge I tell ya! Trump: Bush has ‘huge’ problem with women. Yes J.E.B.(!) does. J.E.B.(!) fumblin’ bumblin’ stumblin’ on women’s health issues and Jeb Bush meant what he said.

“The Donald” has masterfully manipulated the feckless media villagers by using social media — the only thing that lazy media villagers care about — against them. “The Donald” is the ultimate Twitter troll. All he has to do is post something on Twitter, and instantly every Beltway media villager is repeating it. He can control the narrative. Everyone is talking about “The Donald,” no one remembers nor cares what the “Nine Men Out” at The Hunger Games GOP presidential primary debate had to say on Thursday. Do you? It’s hard to get any traction when all the Beltway media villagers care about is the celebrity candidate in the race.

This is what the modern media has become, and it has made Donald Trump possible. I warned you before that Beltway media villagers like to associate with celebrities, even C List celebrities like “The Donald.” Beltway media villagers see themselves as celebrities in the modern “infotainment” era, and many of them get paid accordingly. This is on display every year at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner aka “Nerd Prom.”

“The Donald” has disrupted and divided the conservative media entertainment complex and the Tea-Publican Party.

This is not necessarily something to celebrate. Larry Wilmore from The Nightly Show cautions, If Trump Continues To Rise In The Polls, The Joke Might Be On Us:

After showing one Trump supporter saying that people had better be careful about making fun of Trump because he very well could become our next president, Wilmore told his audience, “This is the part that actually scares me.” He continued.

WILMORE: It would be easy for me to stereotype Trump’s supporters as dumb, stupid voters who aren’t paying attention to issues and just reacting emotionally, but it’s possible they could just be like the Joker and just want to watch the world burn.

I don’t know. I don’t know.

But that’s why the Republican debate is so important. If the Joker wins tomorrow and becomes even more popular, and continues to rise in the polls, the joke just might be on us.

    How long do you think Donald Trump would allow two Black Lives Matter pissants to disrupt an event in which he as scheduled to speak? About 3 seconds? Yeah. Take notes Bernie. That’s what a spine looks like. We didn’t see yours yesterday.

    Trump is the result of dysfunction in both parties. Having returned from a vacation where I asked cab drivers, bus drivers, mid Western residents, hotel clerks, etc. — who they were supporting for president — the overwhelming majority said Trump. Believe that Trump is only supported by Tea Party Republicans at your own peril.

      Spare me the “both parties” meme. Here is an excellent response you should read from David Atkins at the Political Animal blog. http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/political-animal-a/2015_08/there_is_no_liberal_donald_tru056995.php:

      Once again, it’s important to note that both sides don’t, in fact, do it when it comes to political extremism. American conservatism has gone far, far off the rails. Donald Trump’s successful candidacy is only the latest—but far from the only—proof of that.

      Liberals don’t have a Donald Trump because we don’t need one. Even liberal populism is a doggedly rational, evidence-based, internally consistent and broadly popular affair. Populist conservatism is anything but.

        Thanks for the link. I am speaking from my own experience. As a Republican and now a Democrat. Good government means being able to balance “liberal aspiration with conservative instinct” (the words of a famous historian whose name escapes me). Neither party gets that!

  3. As usual Republicans are using double standars for a Republican they are dissing.
    Erick Erickson disinvited Donald Trump from the annual Red State confab, on the grounds that Trump’s various insults directed at Megyn Kelly place him beyond the pale. That this sort of delicate sensibility seems to be a new development for Erickson, who once described David Souter as a “goat-f*****g child molester.” Let’s Take a look at Erickson sexist tweets.http://www.americanfreedombybarbara.com/2015/08/erick-erickson-of-red-state-some-of-his.html
