It’s hard to remember all the media manias that have come and gone in attempts to derail the Trump candidacy. For example, the Great Six-Pointed Star Crisis of early July 2016 is already largely forgotten.
It’s hard to remember now after so much leftist violence, but one of the biggest coordinated press campaigns back in the late winter was the idea that Trump rallies were loci of “violence.” Thus, when there was mob violence at a Trump rally in Chicago in March, it was widely blamed initially by the press and politicians on Trump and his violent supporters. Of course, that was 180 degrees backward.
So how did Trump’s convention in Cleveland turn out? Did Trump’s cossacks sack Shaker Heights? Or did that not actually go through the formality of taking place?
