It’s sorta fun watching the media chase their tails trying to figure out how to pretend Trump is the only president/candidate to ever use fear or dirty tactics to win an election. We get it, their narrative depends on the idea that ORANGE MAN BAD, but if they really think anyone buys their ‘pearl-clutching’ over his behavior we have a bridge to sell them.
Because you know, Democrats never play dirty:
Thing is, Trump did this exact stoking of fear and resentment of the “others” before the midterms. Invasion at the border. Criminal illegals. Maxine Waters.
Ask Republicans in TX and CA how that worked out. Ask Carlos Curbelo. pic.twitter.com/5sx7yeCq7P

Remember when these same people were telling us how badly Hillary would beat Trump?
The other thing is midterm cycles aren’t the same as presidential ones. And he doesn’t care if he wins hideously ugly and by only a few thousand votes. Until it’s clear who the Dem nominee is and what shape the economy is in, it won’t be clear whether his perennial tactic works https://t.co/mY8iIymPHR

Trump has made the Fraud Squad, who outside of Twitter is pretty damn unpopular, the face of the Democratic Party.
I'm always amazed when media pretends Democrats don't fight ugly. Trump only exists because Dems have spent decades accusing Republicans of being racist abettors of murder and nihilism. https://t.co/Ge4RiWbdUu

Where do they think Trump learned this from? Heh.
In '08 Obama ran ads in Spanish slandering John McCain. In '12 his PAC accused Romney of being responsible for a woman's terminal cancer. And, of course, Joe Biden said Romney would put African-Americans back in chains. https://t.co/wtSiep5nxX

That’s RIGHT, we forgot how dirty Obama played during his campaigns.
But you know, he did it for our own good or something.
Wasn't there an ad where Paul Ryan pushed a grandma off a cliff?

Obama fought one of the dirtiest campaigns ever but the media gave him wide altitude… I wonder why ?
