Two quotes from Kanye West:

  1. N#@$&! is monsters  / N#@$&! i is pimps / n#@$&! is players / Til n#@$&! have daughters / N#@$&! is pimps / n#@$&! is players /‘Til n#@$&! have daughters
  2. I think it’s bravery that helps you beat this game called life. You know they tried to scare me to not wear this hat. My own friends. But this hat gives me a different power in a way. You know my dad and my mom separated, so I didn’t have a lot of male energy in my home. And also I’m married to a family that, you know, not a lot of male energy going on.

For one of these, he’s considered a poet.  For the other, a crazy person who can’t read.  Guess which goes with which.

Does anyone care what Mark Sanford thinks?

Rusty 18-3

The last person selected in the NFL draft each year is known as Mr. Irrelevant.  Meet South Carolina’s version.  Washed up Governor, washed up Congressman, and washed up husband.  So CNN seeks him out for advice when it comes to tactful responses?  Granted there’s a great deal of criticism Trump’s earned in the area of tact but please consider getting commentary from someone who isn’t carrying even worse baggage.

We wonder if the reporter could be bribed to ask Sanford if the Appalachian Trail would be impacted by the hurricane?  In all likelihood though, anything that comes across as a dig against Trump, is priceless for CNN…. so never mind.

CNN, with careful editing, helps us focus on their version of Trump’s message

CNN is helping us all with time management by clipping out context from interviews.  Check out how CNN edited Donald Trump’s statements during an “interview” with an NBC reporter.  Why waist valuable video time leaving in material that could place context on what a candidate is discussing, especially when it doesn’t fit your agenda (sarcasm).

Here’s how the video came across originally on CNN.

Reporter: Should there be a database that tracks Muslims entering this country?

Trump: There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems, and today you can do it.

Reporter: Is that something your White House would like to implement?

Trump: I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.

CNN Video of Trump’s Comments

Now for that oh-so-unnecessary video portion that provides context in bold.

Reporter: Should there be a database that tracks Muslims entering this country?

Trump: There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems, and today you can do it. But right now we need to have a border, we have to have strength we have to have a wall, and we cannot let what’s happening to this country happen any longer.

Reporter: Is that something your White House would like to implement?

Trump: I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.

Shame on CNN for editing, shame on NBC for deploying gotcha questions, and also shame on Trump for not listening carefully to the question.
