"Only if I Win." "Gotcha"
(America Outloud) - I get amused when the left-wing media attempts to inveigle admissions, confessions, exploitable half truths or wrong information out of a candidate they don’t approve of who runs for political office. Many of these fall into the category of “gotcha” questions. We know that.
Chris Wallace of Fox News, not necessarily a flaming liberal, but getting there, did it to Donald Trump at the third debate, piously asking, nay demanding, “would Mr. Trump,” right then and there on the public stage, “agree that he would support the winner?” Where did that come from? It’s a trick question right? It was intended as an extended “gotcha” question.
Trump didn’t bite and the left-wing media and the political establishment “elites” went nuts. Pointy headed political pontificators, poll takers, Democrats and Republicans, fell all over themselves trying to trash Donald Trump accusing him as being the personification of evil and the destroyer of Americans great political tradition, that the loser supports the winner. Strange, isn’t it, that Chris Wallace didn’t ask Hillary Clinton if she would support Trump?
To the left-wing media, Trump is a direct threat to the Progressives plan to raze America’s moral foundations and prevent them from creating their glorious new One World Order, with them in charge of course. Trumps election would also inhibit their raiding the public coffers to supply their friends with “investments” like silly solar and wind energy schemes, products not nearly ready for prime time. To sustain this Socialist nonsense, the Progressives must pick the winners and losers in industry and commerce. For them, the free enterprise system is a loser because they believe that because we are the “deplorable’s” we are in need of their beneficence.
Trump immediately understood that agreeing to Wallace’s entreaty was a dangerous idea. In these days of encroaching socialism, for Donald Trump to agree that should he lose he would support the winner, (Hillary) would be seen as his concession that the election was Hillary’s and she might as well be crowned straight away. That’s what the leaf-wing media was wanting, an acknowledgement that The Donald was at his end. They’re scared because they know a Hillary win is not a sure thing.
