    How did Trump defeat the Bush and Clinton dynasties and his other opponents? The media (sometimes even Fox news) were fanatically opposed to Trump. These opponents massively outspent Trump.

    The Trump technique is to make outrageous statements and pick fights with the media. This works because any publicity is good publicity and the media is very unpopular. Trump made sure he got all the attention. He sucked up all the oxygen and the other candidates couldn't breathe.

    Trump also presented himself as an outsider at a time when the people are disgusted by insiders: the politically correct plutocrats and their lackeys.

    I was just thinking there was that navy seal fella that's now romping round in a skirt.... the lad in the papers the other day that was getting all riled about ladettes not being allowed in the military.... maybe he can give Jabba some style and make-up tips? Christ on a bike you wouldn't want to meet that on a dark night its like something from invasion of the body snatchers.

    I think Trump was lucky as the Hillary camp was undermined by the e-mail scandal, losing her double-digit lead over it. Otherwise, Hillary could have been the duly elected president. The media kept reporting the scandal in October and US voters totally lost confidence in her by November. The corporate media damaged Hillary's reputation severely as it's always hungry for scandalous stories to boost its profitability.
