It's not "acceptable" in a real-world sense. What's happening is that the existing powers of the establishment are desperate to have her win so they can keep hold of power for a bit longer.

In 4 years time, some black rioters might be the least of your problems when it comes to mobs and destruction.


I see a lot of people saying things like this, but I see no reason to assume that Trump will do anything to break up these power structures. So, how exactly is Trump going to change the media? Honestly, hes probably great for the media with his antics.

Trump is a populist. He's already GOT money, he doesn't need financial support from corporations. Trump's business empire is also not Weapons Tech, so he's not got vested interests in keeping foreign wars going.

His antics do certainly keep the mainstream media in things to sell advertising space and show the other powers how useful and subservient they are, but he's not their boy and given the flack they've given him the Media is looking at a very unpleasant presidency if Trump wins.

Trump won't be "breaking up" the establishment power structures directly. He may well be able to close some loopholes, alter some regulations to protect consumers, fiddle with the tax structure to help the common man. But, he won't be directly supporting them and helping them through Regulation, Law and Taxes.

We're not talking Slash and Burn with Trump. He's not the revolution, but he represents a change and that change is likely to make life slightly more difficult and less profitable for a lot of people.

And if you're powerful and comfortable, why should you have to put up with some upstart trying to make your life more difficult just because some filthy voters like the way he speaks? How DARE they try and unseat YOU. You DESERVE to be ABOVE them. They're just FILTHY PEASANTS. SERFs don't push the KING off this THRONE.

Don't start a family until the president is confirmed and has been in office for at least 6 months.

1) Trump is a populist. He's already GOT money, he doesn't need financial support from corporations. Trump's business empire is also not Weapons Tech, so he's not got vested interests in keeping foreign wars going.

2) His antics do certainly keep the mainstream media in things to sell advertising space and show the other powers how useful and subservient they are, but he's not their boy and given the flack they've given him the Media is looking at a very unpleasant presidency if Trump wins.

3) Trump won't be "breaking up" the establishment power structures directly. A) He may well be able to close some loopholes, alter some regulations to protect consumers, fiddle with the tax structure to help the common man. But, he won't be directly supporting them and helping them through Regulation, Law and Taxes.

4) We're not talking Slash and Burn with Trump. He's not the revolution, but he represents a change and that change is likely to make life slightly more difficult and less profitable for a lot of people.

5) And if you're powerful and comfortable, why should you have to put up with some upstart trying to make your life more difficult just because some filthy voters like the way he speaks? How DARE they try and unseat YOU. You DESERVE to be ABOVE them. They're just FILTHY PEASANTS. SERFs don't push the KING off this THRONE.

1) See thats the thing. I've seen a lot of people talking about how Trump is an outsider and whatnot, but I don't see him actually doing anything different. He seems just as hawkish and friendly to corporations as the next guy.

2) What is Trump going to do to the media? How is he going to make it unpleasant?

3A) Trump favors deregulation which gives the government less power to protect the consumers and he is also in favor of lowering taxes on corporations, so closing loopholes does little to ensure they pay their fair share.
3B) Trump tax plan has already been analyzed and the vast majority of the benefit goes to those at the top. There are even some who believe his tax plan will significantly increase taxes on the middle class.

4) Again, Trump favors deregulation and decreasing taxes on the rich. How does this make their life more difficult and less profitable?

5) Again, how is Trump going to hurt these people?

We have a winner. The only thing the media is protecting is their ratings. That's why every election is somehow a horse race right to the end even when every poll says otherwise.

Now Trump. Trump has been a windfall for them in terms of ratings. They want this to be a total circus / dumpster fire.

Remember, the Pussy Grab(tm) tape was leaked to WaPo. NBC has been sitting on the tape this entire time. They could have released it months ago and saved us all this chaos ( and the GOP a lot of headaches ). But they've either been saving it for maximum ratings scoop or had no intention of releasing it all and enjoying the ratings ride this election has been giving the major news networks.

This is not about politics, its about product. The networks will sell you want you want to watch and what you want to watch is a dumpster fire. The most watched debates? The most people paying attention to the presidential campaigns than ever before? You've shown them what you want and you are getting it.

The mainstream media isn't interested in protecting either candidate beyond maintaining the illusion that both sides are equally abhorrent. Because you've shown them that that is what you want: Awful reality television.

The final debate is on Fox. At this rate they'll be adding those Drama(tm) sound effects from Hell's Kitchen to it.
