Donald Trump was supposed to lose big last night in the U.S. midterm elections. It didn’t happen.
Trump’s Republicans did lose 27 seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives. But it is not unusual for voters to back away from a president during a midterm election — that is, in the middle of the president’s term.
Trump lost 27 seats. In 2010, half way through his first term, Barack Obama lost 63 seats.
It is a setback. But that ain’t a "blue wave."
The Kavanaugh hearings are one big reason. Not just the maniacs in the official Democrat party, but the maniacs outside, literally banging on the doors of the Supreme Court.
Voters, who'd been told that Donald Trump was crazy, saw what actual crazy looked like. And they backed away from the party of Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti.
Trump himself worked very hard, doing rally after massive rally, sometimes more than one a day.
It really made a difference — the states Trump visited tipped into the Republican category.
So Trump held his own against the Democrats. But the real enemy of course is the U.S. media.
But what about our state broadcaster, the CBC, created specifically to promote Canadian culture? They actually sent down their Ottawa political reporters to the U.S., to stir up anti-Trump sentiment.
CTV and the Toronto Star got in on this too, as I'll show you tonight.
The media in Canada doesn’t get a vote, of course. And American journalists only get one vote each, and it’s usually wasted in New York or L.A., which are already overwhelmingly Democrat.
Thank God, at least for now, the decisions are being made in places like Florida, and North Dakota, and Missouri and Indiana.
