Spread some butter on him because Trump is about to be TOAST. This is serious. Bloomberg revealed their not-quite-October surprise that is going to absolutely destroy his chances to get elected, and there isn’t a damned thing he can do about it.
Let’s just be honest about something. Other than the racist vote, the ONLY reason that Trump is the Republican nominee is because he’s a liar. If he tried being truthful, he wouldn’t even have made it to the debate stage with the other Republicans, let alone Hillary.
The really big problem is that our mainstream media have not fact checked Trump in any honest way since this whole thing began. If they did, this would have been over before it started and we’d have been talking about Ted Cruz for the past few months.
Bloomberg TV is going to be conducting on-screen real-time fact checking of the presidential debate. Such a simple concept, and yet it’s about to completely destroy a campaign.
Bloomberg’s decision was confirmed by POLITICO, as a way to distinguish themselves from the major TV networks by conducting actual credible journalism. It’s about damned time someone does it, that’s for sure.
Progressives have been lobbying our mainstream so-called news to fact check for a long time due to their cowardice in the face of Trump’s nonstop stream of complete lies and bullsh*t. Networks all claim that it’s “too hard” to do real-time fact checking.
A small-ball news service like Bloomberg inexplicably managed to achieve this monumental feat of journalistic engineering when literally every other network with far more resources at their disposal could not. Funny, ain’t it?
