jeff fblive trumpDonald Trump has had the month, from hell as he has gone from one gaffe or mistake to another.  His poll numbers have dropped significantly nationally and in the battleground states.  On Wednesday he changed course and replaced campaign managers, although, his campaign is spinning it, saying they added staff.

Perhaps worst, because of the recent poll numbers, some Republicans want to divert resources that would go to Donald Trump campaign and send it to the US Senate and US house campaigns since some of those Republican candidates are on the political bubble.  The top of the ticket has been hurting their campaign numbers and those supporting this argument believe Trump candidacy is hopeless.

Then, there is the issue of the message.  Many who oppose Hillary Clinton or who support Trump (and others) are blaming the media for the fallen numbers.  Others put the blame on Trump himself.

Jeff Crouere, radio talk show host for WGSO and Bayoubuzz columnist and I addressed these issues Wednesday night via a Facebook Live discussion.

Below is the video segment focused upon these particular issues.  The video also contain the closed captioned transcription.

Who does Crouere blame?  Should resources be diverted to the lower part of the ticket from the top?  What can Trump do to keep the media from being “fixated” on Trump and more focused upon Hillary’s significant deficiencies?

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
