We ask you to forgive the lede (pictorial) section of this post, but the introduction serves a purpose.
GOP presidential candidate, John Kasich (R) Ohio, does seem to have a tendency to allow photo shots and video recording when he is sitting around restaurant tables. There is a place in US politics for that homey visual of the candidate with the suit jacket off (always with the tie intact), sleeves rolled up to the elbow, along with joining us everyday Americans in restaurants. But, the visual should be presented in moderation and certainly with less food about the mouth. The visual doesn't bode well over the long haul.
However, a case can be made that Kasich's early morning camera shots and video, isn't worthy of a few hours of unadulterated silliness from a competing candidate. Since. we place an image of Donald Trump along with Kasich and another image as Trump the *food-in-mouth* campaign hypocrite. If you haven't seen Trumps mid-morning response e to Kasich's breakfast experience, talk a look and listen. If you every seen a more child-like manifestation from a fully developed adult within the past year, please let us know. If you have ever in your life seen such from a multi-billionaire, please let us know. If you have even seen such behavior from a circus clown, direct us to a similar video. Donald Trump is a farce.
Trump's goes totally unpresidential and mocks Kasich.
As we watched Trump's lates ;child-like conniption, we heard and read the recent shuffle in his campaign staff may have suffered another shuffle back to its original campaign manager.
As you think of Trump's campaign slogan regarding Ted Cruz, " Lyin Ted," think of the following from Trump's man, Paul Manafort , as he spoke in private with RNC leadership.
“When he’s out on the stage, when he’s talking about the kinds of things he’s talking about on the stump, he’s projecting an image that’s for that purpose,” Manafort said in a private briefing.
“You’ll start to see more depth of the person, the real person. You’ll see a real different guy,” he said…
“He gets it,” Manafort said of Trump’s need to moderate his personality. “The part that he’s been playing is evolving into the part that now you’ve been expecting, but he wasn’t ready for, because he had first to complete the first phase. The negatives will come down. The image is going to change.”
Here is the thirty-three-minute video. If you are of the same ilk as The Progressive Influence, you don't spend time listening to nor watching republicans. We offer the audio as it reminds of Mitt Romney's 47% video with the visual. The captured and released audio also speaks to GOP/RNC veracity.
If there is a modicum of honesty and veracity among republicans, it is not easily discernible.
