WDT Demands to Know Why MOC Supports The Donald

       Perry and company over at 260 have been grumbling over Donald Trump's candidacy since their guy Kasich got eliminated and now they want our MOC to elaborate on why she supports Mr. Trump.
       Well for starters she supports him for the same reason Mike Derrick supports Hillary Clinton or Matt Funiciello supports Dr. Jill Stein.  Party.
       Frankly, I am tired of the media's game this year of trying to put local pols on the spot by asking them to respond to every real or perceived offense from Mr. Trump. It's not something asked of  Democratic elected officials on every issue over emails or the Clinton Foundation. I also don't think some of these elected people nationally or locally should feel obliged to dump on their nominee on cue either.
       There are good reasons to support Mr Trump in this past week's policy speeches on the economy and terrorism. Rep. Stefanik surely finds some common ground and should say if asked, but she is also running her own campaign, and while voting for Mr. Trump is not a surrogate for him.
       The two most opinionated papers in NY21 seem to not like Mr. Trump nnd want others to bend to their will.
        The fact is the binary choice offered this year is a difficult one for many voters and that is why newspapers might want to encourage more voices and choices by no longer covering for the Presidential Debate Commission which is just a convenience for lazy media and a rigged system that this year has presented us the most dubious pair of candidates ever.
        I will compliment my frends at 260 for their reference to the HOTLINE in the editorial.  It shows they are discriminating listeners.

Congressman-elect (?) Derrick opened his campaign office yesterday. WDT and News 7 missed the presence of at least one GOP stalwart. Great reporting. huh?

A better question is how anyone can support Hillary Clinton?

By supporting Trump she is supporting and respecting her voters and her base.
By supporting Trump she is rejecting Hillary, the war monger, Iraq invasion voting, Wall Street in bed with, corrupt inept former SOT.
By supporting Trump she is rejecting unnecessary war, unnecessary spending, unnecessary laws agaisnt freedom and disgusting crony capitalism...the trademarks of Hillary.

I wont support any canidate WDT endorses. As far as Ms Stefanik I,m voting Green this year as I think her job has been spotty. Any one endorsing Hillary Clinton has to be a criminal themselves.And all of us Trump people should cancel subscriptions to the Times, Journal etc etc..

Perry, You Old Dog, still wondering why readership is down. You are past your prime, no one is interested in hearing from a white over the hill editor like yourself and that editor of liberal rag on the east side.

Can you answer one question, why no reporting on the sexual predator husband of the Presidential Candidate of the Democrats. People wish to know why the liberals continue to sweep Hillary's destruction of the characters of Bill's previous paramours.

6:39 You answered your own question, there was nothing to report on the 'GOP stalwart' at the opening of an office. Give me a break. With friends like that who needs another RINO.

7:54 May I pile on. Often I wonder how these liberal white emasculated men in their mid 50-65+ range can't see what others see of them in the mirror.

Take for instance Anthony Weiner, got caught sexting yet again. He is no longer sexting as Carlos Danger but as Mongoose. All the time in the world on his hands, he barely can hold onto a job after Nancy Pelosi called him a sick pervert and ran him out of the House.

Now we have another candidate again white mid 50's a bit older than the last emasculated man Stefanik had to run against. All the pieces that have made print is that he has not been in the work force for several years, has been a stay at home father for years, what can he possibly add to todays issues.

What is happening to males is a disgraced being led by the likes of women Hillary, Huma, Wolf's wife and now this new candidate.

Lock your family inflated jewels in your lockboxes cause they sure don't need them anymore.

Essential to also flush Derrick out of the bushes. Who did he vote for: Clinton or Sanders? And why? Continuing to evade the question to not offend part of his base. But if he's supposed to be different, evasion's not an option. Simple question: Who did you support and why?

Jeff I understand why MOC Stefanik thinks it is beneath her to even respond to Perry or that other newspaper.

But if she did all she should do is reverse the inquiry.

Perry what attributes of moral character does Hillary possess that you support her?

Could it be
68% of the general popular have trust issues
She lied about Benghazi, what difference would it matter if that
were your child that was killed
Emails are in the possession of bad actors of various foreign government
Hillary was a huge supporter of the IRAN treaty
Clinton foundation a front for pay to play was Hillary was Sec. of State
How's about you pouring over all the transcripts from her speeches
to Wall Street Buds
Can't forget when she defended an accused rapist that destroyed
a poor 12 year girl's life, and she laughed about it.

The people that should crawl in their holes are Perry, and Dimwit Doolite from what appears to be a sister outlet.

Senior would be saving a ton of money by dumping him. Now if he can convince Jr. the sooner the better to part ways since subscriptions are falling year over year.

Seems like you got all your Sean Hannity talking points in 3:01. Isn't so convenient to listen to him and have him do all your thinking for you, instead of actually reading and thinking for yourself. I like how you quote Johnson family relations, like you know them, or even read their paper. Or for that matter, read at all.

Ray, Trump is toast in NY state. He won't even carry the block he lives on in the city !!

Trump is an insane clown with zero program or strategy . He has changed campaign leadership , even today , like YOU change your underwear . INconsistant, Mercurial, self absorbed , petulant , lacking in family values with 2 broken marriages and serial cheating , inability to listen to diverse opinion ( lets say National Security Council or Congress) without getting nasty and dictatorial when HIS own business failures and frauds have proven him NOT to be effective in all cases .

NO one is omniscient , yet Trump behaves as if he knows , but he fails to KNOW what he DOESN'T know ., a trait most good leaders possess when they are INCLUSIVE in the decision making process

.cmon Ray , as much as i DISLIKE Clinton, ill be damned if i want that RUG wearing sociopath anywhere near the Nuke Codes .
