There’s something overtly missing from just about all media coverage of Donald Trump’s statement on Hillary and the Second Amendment.
The glaring omission, repeated over, and over, and over again, suggests a complete media manipulated controversy.
Here is the way most major media sources reported what Trump said:
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
That’s what most people heard, with Trump’s statment ending there. But, when his FULL statement is heard, it takes on a different tone, one that might be harder to manipulate.
The following are numerous examples of various coverage with the same thing in common:
But, what Trump actually said was this:
I just wrote this down today. Hillary wants to raise taxes — it’s a comparison. I want to lower them. Hillary wants to expand regulations, which she does bigly. Can you believe that? I will reduce them very, very substantially, could be as much as 70 to 75 percent. Hillary wants to shut down energy production. I want to expand it. Lower electric bills, folks! Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment.
By the way, and if she gets to pick — if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know. But I’ll tell you what, that will be a horrible day, if — if — Hillary gets to put her judges in.
It sounds a lot different in context doesn’t it?
But why would the media want to create a storm of controversy around the Republican presidential nominee at this particular moment?
It has long been argued by many that Democratic presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton’s greatest super PAC is the mainstream media. Could this contrived controversy be a manifestation of that?
Could it be these remarks are being edited to a specific point because the media wants to distract you from the fact that the father of the Orlando terrorist, who murdered 49 people at a gay nightclub, was seated at a prominent location at Clinton’s Kissimmee, Florida, rally on Monday?
Or might it be that Clinton finds herself, yet again, immersed in a scandal about emails? This time the emails seem to link donations to the Clinton Foundation to favors done by the State Department when Clinton was secretary of state.
Why not show the entire quote in context and allow people to decide for themselves?
Unless, that is, you are trying to decide for them.
