1) This article actually brings up an amazing point and one of the big weaknesses for the Democrats right now.

Their biggest strength has always been how much media coverage they control. Enough media control, and they could cover up damn near anything bad for them, like Epstein
2) 'But you just said big weakness, and then started talking about a big strength?'


Its a double-edged sword, this media control.

There are only so many primetime hours in the day, and only so many front pages and tops of websites you can plaster with a story.
3) Trump doesn't have this problem. What Paul Cuckstain Ryan doesn't seem to understand is that Fox needs Trump, Trump doesn't need Fox. Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Four out of the Five need HIM to give them stuff to talk about, not the other way around.
4) Meanwhile, one Trump tweet and he can rock the nation and immediately devour all those primetime hours and front pages and tops of news websites. All it takes is one zinger.

And now, the Democrats have been pushing impeachment for WEEKS, and sharing media space with Trump.
5) Is it any wonder why most of the Democrat candidates are utter mysteries? Does anyone know the actual platform of 14 out of the 20 initial candidates? Does anyone know the actual platforms of the top 6 beyond far left fuckery?

Have any of them gotten media attention?
6) Remember, 2015 and 2016, Trump would call in and just hog the media spotlight. He'd talk with Psycho Joe and Crazy Mika CONSTANTLY. He crowded out all of his opponents in the GOP primary with coverage.

Now Trump tweets and Democrat impeachment are doing the same for the Dems.
7) No media coverage, and the party's entire platform veering off into the left of abortions for transwomen and crazy shit like that make it so candidates can't just say crazy shit, get media coverage, and then take advantage of the coverage like Trump. They're already peak crazy
8) Now, its famine time, as the Dems have started dropping like flies, and new ones are going to try to dive in only to have their own media coverage starved out.

They fail to understand the key bit of primary election marketing that Trump learned and capitalized on. What is it?
9) They're supposed to fucking ENTERTAIN us.
10) They aren't getting their media coverage because dumbassed impeachment hearings and Trump tweets are more entertaining than watching a bunch of liberals agree with each other on everything.

Look at Tulsi; she rose BECAUSE she started picking fights with other Dems.
11) My hatred of Tulsi has been made clear, but I will admit she understands that the Democrat Primary is not supposed to be a daycare where you share toys and take turns on the swings.

It's supposed to be fucking brutal because the voters are bloodthirsty beasts.
12) Mark my words now: if the Democrats start fighting each other in earnest and don't have CNN and MSNBC jumping in to break up the fights and shutting off mics, then you're going to see an actual candidate emerge, one who can actually unite the party and challenge Trump.
13) This is where the Thomas Wictor theory Judas Goats come in; I think the Democrats are being told, behind the scenes, that they're NOT SUPPOSED to fight, because if they fight then they 'sink to Trump's level'.

So, they have circlejerks and hug parties. Their primaries suck.
14) They suck, they're boring, the lack of fighting becomes more noteworthy than what little fighting does happen, and so most of the candidates are being ignored and are starving on the vine as they shout at the only 5 people that follow them and listen to them.
15) This is how Trump wins in 2020, guaranteed. Not by being the better candidate, not with a good economy, not with following through on promises, each of those the Dems could have the media ignore and screech orange man bad ad nauseum.

He wins b/c the Dems forgot how to win /e
