Hell Freezes Over At Washington Post, Saying Very Nice Things About Trump's Pennsylvania Speech Today
Hell Freezes Over At Washington Post, Saying Very Nice Things About Trump's Speech Today
The Washington Post, a very liberal media news site just gave Donald Trump two thumbs-up for his speech in Pennsylvania. Here's their headline today:
Donald Trump gave a very, very good speech today in Pennsylvania
Donald Trump isn't terribly good at delivering speeches. He tends to bounce between a rote recitation of the words in the teleprompter and wild message detours into controversial territory that grab headlines and totally distract from the message he and his team are hoping to push on any given day.
Which is what makes his speech on Tuesday in Pennsylvania all the more remarkable. This was Trump at the best I have seen him in months — a disciplined and effective messenger giving a speech that, to my ear, was one of his best.
Start from the top. The whole event, which featured a rotating cast of doctors-and-nurses-turned-Republican members of Congress, was aimed at highlighting how the Affordable Care Act had failed to live up to the promises Democrats made about it. (Tuesday was the first day for open enrollment in the federal health insurance marketplace for 2017.) The run-up to his speech was flawlessly executed for Trump to use Obamacare as an example of how Hillary Clinton represents more of the same sort of policies that Democratic politicians have been pushing for years. And, unlike so many times over the past few months, Trump actually stuck to the script.
