Trump is being portrayed as an unstable narcissist who's going to use nuclear weapons. Hillary Clinton, who really is an unstable war-monger, is being portrayed as temperamentally fit to be President - which she isn't.
I was a very little kid during Vietnam, but remember the news on TV: "Today 11 Americans were killed and 245 Vietcong." Statistics such as these were broadcast every day. You never forget nightly news like that.
I also remember being in class in school and the teacher asked us to raise our hands to indicate who we would vote for. Several of us raised hands for Goldwater and the rest for Johnson. Even then I thought the Johnson kids were nuts. And I was about six or seven.
I do remember the anti-Goldwater commercials. One, exactly, a very famous one.
A little girl is picking daisies in a field and then you see a nuclear mushroom cloud. "Oh my God Barry Goldwater is a psycho who's going to start a nuclear war!!!"
But it turned out Lyndon Johnson was the war-mongering psycho. He was the one who escalated in Vietnam, and two-thirds of the casualties occurred under him. Then he decided not to run for a second term and dumped the whole mess in Nixon's lap. What a worthless POS.
The media, obviously liberal even then, never accepted Nixon's election as legitimate and did everything in their power to bring him down, which they finally did with Watergate.
Trump is going to be President. And when he does the media will never accept the results, and attack him and attack him and try to bring him down. I'm already hearing talk about impeachment.
Good Lord is the MSM frothing at the mouth!
Now Trump is being portrayed as a sexual predator. LBJ was a major horndog, as was that POS John Kennedy - and the MSM never said a word about any of it. Instead we've got ugly women from 35 years ago claiming Trump molested them - and the MSM is eating it up.
But they'll never attack Hillary the war-monger.
People have finally seen though the MSM, and thank God for that. I credit the Internet, which I'm sure the MSM would close down if it could. After all, its members are intellectually and morally superior to the unwashed masses and so should vote as they instruct us.
Those days are over for good, and the MSM did it to itself with its lies. Lies do come home to roost, even if it takes several decades and tens of thousands of lives.
