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?

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
