You really couldn't make this stuff up.
Michael B. Fernandez, staunch Republican and also a billionaire (who isn't?), is placing full-page ads in the Miami Herald against the Republican candidate for President. He has been taking a lot of heat for his stand against Trump and his support of Clinton. And then you have Don Soffer (Turnberry, Aventura Mall), Democrat, placing full page ads for Donald Trump. The battle of the billionaires. Hey fellows, do you really think the ads help? If I were you guys, I would give the money to me and I will write whatever you want.
By the way, I watched whatever it was they had on air last night with Matt Lauer. Hillary was at her best. Finally she gave up that shrill voice and spoke with authority. Trump was asked not to criticize the other candidate, however, that was all he did through criticism of Obama. I thought Trump got off easy and so did the New York Times:
“Lauer interrupted Clinton’s answers repeatedly to move on. Not once for Trump,” Norman Ornstein, the political commentator, wrote in a Twitter message, adding: “Tough to be a woman running for president.” and:Oh, I am reopening my Stop-O Marco/Rubio Sucks campaign. Please give it some sugar, Marco loves big sugar donations.
The criticism captured what has become a common complaint about media coverage during this election: that news organizations and interviewers treat Mrs. Clinton as a serious candidate worthy of tough questions, while Mr. Trump is sometimes handled more benignly.
Mr. Lauer did manage to extract several head-turning statements from Mr. Trump. He confronted Mr. Trump with a crass Twitter message from 2013 in which the future candidate suggested that sexual assaults in the military were a logical result of men and women serving together. “It is a correct tweet,” Mr. Trump said.
When Mr. Lauer asked if Mr. Trump actually believed he knew more about the Islamic State than American generals, the candidate replied: “The generals have been reduced to rubble.”
