Trump People at Biden Town Hall: What the Networks Didn’t Show!

What was missing from this week’s network coverage of Joe Biden’s appearance at a drive-in style”Town Hall” outside Scranton? It was video of the throngs of Trump supporters lining the road leading to the event. Their numbers far exceeded the relatively few who came to show support for the former vice-president who spent his boyhood in Scranton. You’re about to see just how strong the support for Trump was this past Thursday. The video was taken by two fans of the President, including James May who is running for the PA House of Representatives for the 114th District in Lackawanna County in which Scranton is located:

Trump Masking Blame for Covid-19?

Is President Trump “masking” the blame he should be taking for not emphasizing –until lately– the importance of wearing a mask to prevent the spread of Covid-19? CNN’s Erin Burnett thinks so, and says it’s ridiculous that Trump is trying to shift the blame to governors and other officials of state and local governments. Will Trump’s disregard of masks lose him the 2020 election? That’s what Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio are talking about today:

Trump Losing Republicans?

The internet is full of postings from people claiming they are long-time Republicans who are not going to vote for Trump in this year’s election. They cite long lists of Trump’s actions and inactions which they say have made they decide to vote for Biden instead. But do such postings, which all sound very scripted, really represent what most Republicans are thinking? That’s what Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York are kicking around today:

 

Trump Losing Scranton? Street Signs say No!

The Hill’s “Rising” news and opinion show is featuring a report that indicates that Trump is losing the white working class which helped him win in 2016. The report targets Scranton, Pa, and concludes that many of the white working class are so upset with Covid, that they are drifting away from Trump because they blame him for its spread. But Larry Sparano, who lives right outside Scranton, says there’s another very visible measure -ignored in the report- that indicates Trump is not losing support there. He explains, in this broadcast with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Will Virus Defeat Trump?

The media are full of reports depicting Trump in deep trouble due to the public’s perception that Trump has done too little to contain the pandemic. While that might be a big factor in the 2020 presidential election, Larry Sparano says there’s another huge issue of concern lurking in the background –and it’s an issue that could win Trump another term. Larry lays it out in this conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

The Big Stories Media Mis-Reported in 2019

It’s not so much what the media did report in 2019 as what it didn’t report, or failed to report fairly, accurately, and vigorously. Some of those failures are pointed out by political commentator Kyle Kulinski in Secular Talk. On-Target’s Larry Sparano discusses the issue with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York

Are You Better Off Now Than You Were Four Years Ago? –The Implications from Trump.

According to polls, a majority of Americans feel they are no better off now, economically, than they were four years ago, or before Trump took office. Does this spell defeat for Trump in 2020? On-Target’s Larry Sparano discusses that with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Two Reports: Smollett Skates/Voters Don’t Care about Mueller Probe

He staged a false racial attack, caused the Chicago Police Department to spend tons of money and man hours, inflamed racial tensions in a city already rent by violence and hatred  –and now it’s just, uh, ‘never mind?  A great deal if you can get it.  And Jussie Smollett did!

And in a second report, polling shows that voters don’t give a rat’s, uh posterior, about the results of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s exhaustive, 22-month long, 31 million dollar investigation into Trump’s activities.  Considering such polling, how much longer should Democrats and other critics continue to harp on Trump’s alleged “Russian Collusion?”   Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York in discussion of both topics.  First, Smollett:

 

State of the Union: A Win or Loss for Trump?

Democrats are quickly pointing out what they say are all the distortions, exaggerations and lies in Trump’s State-of-the-Union address.  But will it make any difference heading into the 2020 election season?  Will Trump continue to hold his base, and perhaps even win new support?   And can Democrats rally enough votes to oust him by attacking his credibility?   Hear what On-Target’s Larry Sparano thinks, in his latest discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
