Is Donald Trump Real or Did the Corporate Media Create Him?

While I’m no fan of Trump (I already voted by absentee ballot – for Jill Stein), I find it more than a little alarming that this speech – which is circulating on Facebook – is nothing like the Donald Trump we see in the corporate media:

I have pretty much ignored all the US election coverage, but I was also pretty intrigued by this analysis by Michael Moore on the appeal of Donald Trump for the white working class – especially in what he calls the “Brexit” state (Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and other states where the manufacturing industry has virtually collapsed). He calls a vote for Donald Trump the biggest “fuck you” vote in human history.

      • According to Wikileaks documents (and the resignation of Wasserman-Schultz from her campaign as a result of Wikileaks), the dirty tricks probably stole the Democratic Nomination from Sanders. If the were not the case, I believe that the voting public would be a lot less hostile.

  1. It is a surprising speech! I am convinced outside of gentrified areas, Trump has a huge following. My family and I had an interesting drive through miles and miles of northeastern Minnesota today. Trump signs were everywhere in the small run down towns with struggling businesses and farms.

    • What troubled me, Carol, was the realization that the corporate media is extremely selective about the image of Trump they choose to represent to the public. Believe me, I have absolutely no regrets about voting for Stein. Thanks for commenting.
