Trump following my advice again!
I previously advised Trump to NOT talk about any of the following:
Lowering taxes on the top 1%
And guess what? Not a single word about any of these topics for the entire evening!
Talking heads criticized some of the earlier speakers for being aimed at the “base” instead of undecided voters. They are wrong about that. If they were talking to the base, they would have talked about the three things above.
For example, the amazingly emotional speech by Pat Smith, the mother of one of the Benghazi victims, was not talking to the “base” as claimed by CNN talking heads, she was talking to all blue-collar whites who are patriotic Americans but who don’t necessarily have a tradition of voting Republican and don’t necessarily oppose abortion, Obamacare, or higher taxes for the top 1%. Her speech would also appeal to a lot of Hispanics. Her speech also appeals to all women who are mothers. It doesn’t appeal to the elites who work in the mainstream media because they just see something devoid of policy attacking Hillary Clinton who they all support and assume that would only resonate with the “base.”
Regarding topics I advised Trump to talk about, the night’s speakers heavily talked about one of them:
Law and order; stick up for the police.
And hit on two more:
Clinton lied about the emails [and I think that Clinton lying about Benghazi is in the same category]
There was very little about immigration and nothing about jobs, jobs jobs, but I presume that’s coming.
