My sources in Missoula have read me portions of the Montana GOP’s secret campaign manual. The top three electoral principles there, according to the source, are, (1) use your jab, (2) throw combinations, and (3) work the body.

Shhhh! Donald Trump is Doing Well

 

Media bias infects coverage of Republicans in general and President Trump in particular a couple ways: Outright lies that may or may not be quietly corrected later [Ivanka receive $1,000,000 just like the Clinton Foundation] Vague innuendo and damning implications from unnamed sources [Anything Russia] Distorting facts or situations [Melania Trump won’t be a real […]
