Tucker Carlson, Fox News: "The headline of the week so far is, this convention is not a disaster, which is a massive victory for Trump."
Well, leaving aside the fact that this convention is the biggest disaster of any nominating convention in the history of the country, both in its chaos and open display of hatred, and in the end result, "not a disaster" in running a four day party isn't really that high a bar for someone they think is suitable to run the country, is it? Apparently, all the Republicans have to do now to have a massive victory is to avoid drawing their AR-15's and having a gun battle on national TV.
"I don’t know a single reporter, I don’t know a single Republican poobah who was not predicting last week this was going to be a massive mess... you’re going to see the party fractured...So for Trump, I think, and this is not propaganda, I think it’s real, it’s a win not to fail here."
If Hillary raises her voice for one second, it will prove that she is unqualified to be President, and if she does not have Democratic party leaders refusing to come or actually stabbing her in the back on stage, it will be a sign that the Democrats are an elite, totalitarian cult.
And the media will buy into it; the same media that ignored the fact that one Republican speaker turned the audience, the leaders of the Republican party, into a violent, howling mob lusting for sacrifice, with just a couple minutes' incitement. And others called Hillary an actual follower of Satan, or called for her execution for treason. Business as usual, folks. Nothing to see here. And certainly not any kind of a sign of how Donald Trump intends to run the country.
