an orchestrated & calculated mass media manipulation
One thing I like about Donald Trump is that he simply speaks his mind - mostly nonscripted - one can easily observe it when he tries to be deceptive or lie in order to get more favs (eg. "we love the Hispanics") and that trait is so much more convenient to me than an Obama that constantly talks so slowly, and takes about 5 seconds breaks in between every sentence in order to setup his phrases.
And of course if you don't script everything little mistakes happen naturally, but if you're not completely stupid you still know what Trump intended to say (like, he never intended to say that Russia didn't invade Crimea, he rather pointed out that Russia won't invade the rest of Ukraine). But why are Democrats always so quick in misunderstanding him? Perhaps because Hillary herself has a huge problem with honesty/lying as evidenced by just another email (DNC) scandal. Seriously - "this is a distraction" - and the Khan-incident falls right into that category as well.
Let's take a closer look on some stuff that got said.
First off, it was naive from Khan to not expect a harsh reply from Trump when he initially formulated such a harsh attack in the first place. So don't act so surprised now posing as the victim when you're the provocator itself!
Trump made a good point about his wife which wasn't speaking, which is esp. ironic coming from the DNC. Khans explanation that she's been unable because of suffering from "high blood pressure" is nothing but a lie, a silly excuse at best. Wow - high blood pressure, that's what basically everybody has drinking too much coffee or eating salty meals. Big deal! How precisely is that going to prevent you speaking? But even if it would've been true - say she really was severely sick or in a bad shape being unable to communicate - then perhaps a hospital or staying home in bed to rest would be a much better place than the stage of a political show exacerbating the stresses - yet that guy calls Trump out for being not empathic when it's Khan being cruel or not being too overly concerned about the recovery of his wife's health here.
Khan illustrated his son died in Iraq war and that his son was a muslim. First off, his son wasn't fighting because of religious/muslim reason but because his function there was being a soldier. And the reasons for being a soldier can be many - earning a living, patriotism etc - so the added information about his son being muslim was redundant/irrelevant. The manipulation here is to suggest that -generally- muslims will fight against all enemies of the US. When the twin towers came down I still remember hordes of normal arab/muslim citizens -many of them women, grandmas & children- dancing in the streets universally chanting "death to America". Maybe it's just me but neither did I see the (archfind) Russians nor the Chinese putting up any parades on that tragic incident. Not even the DPRK! There is, definitely, a correlation of hatred versus the United States & arab culture + muslim religion.
And maybe even rightfully - it's the US starting all too many wars to promote capitalism & democracy in foreign lands. Again ironically, these wars all did come from the establishment and Trump has said many times that he neither wishes to sacrifice US lives in order to play world police when other NATO memberstates could chime in here as well, nor was he an advocate of the invasion of Iraq.
Yet noone at CNN feels responsible to set things straight and ask the right questions. No wonder Trump refuses to cooperate with them - which is something you only learn from AlJazeera, CNN is remarkably silent about his motives here. Funny when in that one trailer advocating that female reporter star, you see Trump silently explaining something followed by said star reporter looking grim and shakeing her head in frustration as to say "You're wrong" when all she does is smile smile smile in the rest of the add. Subtle manipulation - you know why Nazi progaganda could be easily dismissed? Because it has been so obvious. Nowadays, we've got real effective propaganda out there - it's not about downright lying because if CNN does that Russia Today will make jokes about it the very next day. It's about omitting information, portraying things in an unbalanced way, subconsciously creating acausal associations inside the mind of the viewer.
On that note, the propaganda coming from RT is also just "obvious America-bashing is obvious", just saying...
Then Trump makes a joke and snipes at Hillarys lost emails (which have been deliberately erased by her lawyers to stiffle a potential FBI investigation) when the DNC was so quick to name Putin as the perpetrator responsible for the hack, only to mean for the democrats & the established media that possible Trump would even invite Putin to do so. How can so many people so incredibly wrong? Where is the hard evidence to support these claims? Because without, the only thing you'll do is to irresponsibly offend the East. Russian coding or timestamps could be faked - and the russians are the obvious choice for a believable fake attacker. It's all nonsense made up to create another distraction with Trump artificially tied in there, in order to not having to speak about the obvious rigged establishment which would potentially uncover more & more dirt if someone would just show the courage to start digging deep.
