Donald Trump’s sense of humour might win it for him, by Freddy Gray.
We all know that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton score very low on the likeability front. Trump is more reviled than Clinton, but in one important way he has the edge on her: he is funny and she is not. Look at this clip of him addressing the crowd in Florida:
Now, no matter how much you loathe him, it is admittedly quite amusing.
And how does the media (read Democrat Party operatives with bylines) spin it?
And yet for the last two days the TV networks have been talking about Trump’s ‘lapse’ into a ‘bizarre inner monologue’ as if it were a moment of genuine insanity. This is the problem with the media and Trump. Pundits take him far too seriously, and react with a sort of demented pomposity to his harmless jokes.
