So last night, President Trump held a rally in El Paso.
And the pictures of the over-flow crowd are quite something to behold.
Holy smokes! That is a hell of a lot of people.
And that’s just the overflow crowd. Inside the venue was another sixty-five hundred people.
That crowd goes back so far, you can barely make out where it ends.
In the interests of full disclosure, I do not do well in crowds. If I had to stand in that sea of people, I’d end up in a full-blown panic attack.
Those guys are packed in like sardines for as far as the eye can see.
All over social media last night, I saw picture after picture of this overflow crowd. And every picture was taken from the front looking back over the vast sea of heads.
Then there’s Beto O’Rourke’s rally.
According to the Guardians of the Truth, the Beto fest was ten-thousand strong!
Here’s a screen grab from a video Beto O’Rourke posted to Twitter.
Yeah. Unless more than half the audience is made up of invisible people, there is no way in hell that’s a crowd of ten thousand.
I’ve seen larger crowds at a high school pep rally.
Even a claustrophobic gal like myself would be able to stand in that audience without even breaking out in a sweat.
So why lie?
Why pretend the only people who came to see Trump were the sixty-five hundred inside the venue while ignoring the immense sea of people outside in the overflow crowd?
And why claim that Beto’s rally attracted ten thousand when it is clear from Beto’s own video, the crowd is nowhere near that large?
I mean aside from the fact that the news media lies all the time, why do it?
The answer is simple.
The news media settled on what the El Paso narrative was going to be long before either rally began.
The narrative they crafted was “Wow! Not a good thing for Trump to face-off with Beto in Beto’s own backyard! Boy, did Beto totally own him!”
What you have to remember is these guys are not “reporters;” they’re fluffers.
And in a match-up between President Trump (whom they despise) and failed Senate candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke (whom they LOVE!!!), so-called reporters can’t wait to be Beto’s personal fluffers.
They want to build him up, make him seem more popular than he really is, and set up the narrative that even in solidly red Texas Trump can’t attract as many people as that super-amazing guy Beto O’Rourke.
So they lie – either by omitting the vast number of people in the overflow crowd at Trump’s rally or by out and out lying about how many people turned up at Beto’s.
Not that fluffing for Beto is new. These guys have been Beto’s fluffers ever since he ran against Ted Cruz.
Why do you think Democrats throughout the country were so convinced that Beto was going to spank Cruz in the 2018 Midterms?
They were knew — just knew — an upset was coming in November because the media fluffers portrayed Beto as far more wildly popular than he really was.
Look at Beto’s crowds!
Look at him skateboarding!
OMG! He’s doing air drums in his car!!!! I can’t even!
Even his flop-sweat is sexy!!!
As much as the identity politics-driven Left in both the DNC and the media long for a woman of color to run for President in 2020, at the end of the day, these guys won’t hesitate to toss Kamala out on her caramel-colored ass if Beto throws his Irish-made sombrero into the race.
And they saw this “dueling rallies” narrative as a great way to kick that off.
But since Trump’s rally – in Beto’s own backyard — was vastly larger, the pre-planned narrative didn’t hold up against reality.
So they lied.
And, once again, thousands of social media drones who never believe their lying eyes will lap up the lies of the Beto Fluffers without a moment’s hesitation.
They’ll believe Trump is losing support and whatever Democrat the media fluffers end up choosing is like totally, outrageously, crazy popular!
And by “drones,” we can even include former Governor Yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaa:
They want voters to believe the media fluffers and not their own lying eyes.
And because the drones are so fully invested in their Trump Derangement Syndrome, they happily play along.
So what happens in 2020 Trump if (or when) wins reelection?
Well, those same drones will be screaming helplessly at the sky in utter confusion and dismay. They’ll believe, once again, that there is no way Trump could have legitimately won because they believed the fluffers in the media instead of their own lying eyes.
This is precisely why the news media is the enemy of the people, you guys.
Not only are they attacking the President 24/7. But their lies also create unreasonable expectations for the anti-Trump crowd that always end up being dashed against the rocks of reality.
They’re not “reporters;” they’re fluffers peddling in propaganda and preying on wishful thinking.
So while their fake news overtly seeks to harm Trump, it inadvertently hurts the anti-Trump crowd as well.
Nobody wins when the news media jettisons honest reporting for media fluffing. Nobody.
But they won’t stop being fake.
The fact is, they can’t stop.
In the end, their lies do far more to disrupt and divide this country than a handful of Russian-paid Facebook posts ever could.
And the closer we get to 2020, the more outlandish and over-the-top this media fluffing is going to get.
