It's still scary to publicly say you are backing Trump in local media/political circles. One county legislator and GOP insider says he is supporting the Johnson-Weld ticket and got the Libertarians some signatures.
Meanwhile the local MSM chides anyone supporting Trump, suggesting they dump the GOP standard bearer. They all tried to jump on the MOC this week just to prove they are in tune with national politics.
Ever since a month ago when it looked like Trump could win, the RINOs, the egalitarian elites, and the local media who don't normally deign to discuss politics have been working OT to ditch Trump.
Try talking up Trump in the more tony circles of NNY society. You might be asked to leave.
Couple other notes...With NBC carrying the Olympics much of their cable net MSNBC is preempted......That will lower the level of BS considerably.
And local Green candidate for Congress Matt Funiciello is in Houston this weekend where he will speak at the national convention nominating Dr. Jill Stein. If I had to guess, I think the Doctor may be the Times choice this year as I can't imagine endorsing anyone with four Pinnochios, unless that person were seen as the best path for a patch of missiles at Fort Drum.
