NFL Becomes “Least Liked Sport” in America
Not long ago, American football was the most popular sport in the US by a wide margin. But ever since the NFL went from being an action sport to being a political protest movement, viewership has been plummeting.
The Winston Poll from the Washington-based Winston Group found that the attitude of those fans went from an August rating of 73 percent favorable and 19 percent unfavorable to 42 percent favorable and 47 percent unfavorable, a remarkable turn against the sport…
… Worse for football, which was already seeing lower TV ratings and empty stadium seats, the month of protests and complaints about them from President Trump drove core fans, men 34-54, away, the most significant indicator that NFL brass aren’t in touch with their base. __ Trump Kicks NFL to New Lows
Why Nobody Watches Late Night “Comedy” Anymore
In the days of Johnny Carson, late night shows were once funny and entertaining. But that hasn’t been the case since Jay Leno left the stage for younger, more ideologically-bound talking heads. And besides being tiresomely political, they simply have nothing meaningful to say for anyone living outside of their echo choir.
While America was laughing at Twitter and watching YouTube videos, late night was slipping. Writing in the Transom, Ben Domenech of The Federalist points out that the late-night viewership of ABC, CBS, plus NBC this week barely broke 8 million viewers. Not long ago retired NBC funnyman Jay Leno was bringing in 6 million viewers all on his own. __ http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/the-anti-trump-late-night-comedy-lineup-keeps-plummeting/article/2636734
These late night hypocrites ignore any hint of scandal reflecting badly on their leftist crusade for mediocrity and decline, at the same time that they purposely misrepresent and exaggerate any misstatement or inadvertent stumble by their political enemies. These political dogmatists are about as funny as an ISIS massacre of innocent civilians.
Committing “Suicide by Trump”
These increasingly distasteful and over-rated institutions dominated by the leftist American ruling classes are following the same road as did the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign over a year ago, when it encouraged Democratic Party voters to register as Republicans so that they could vote for Trump in key primary elections. Clinton’s campaign so was certain that it could defeat Trump in any general election, that they wagered everything on helping to make sure that Trump was the Republican nominee.
The American press was complicit in this little gambit, and generally played softball with Trump right up until he became the Republican Party nominee. Then they pulled out all the little scandals they had been holding in their hidden portfolios, and played the usual crescendo of dirty tricks leading up to the election.
But both the Clinton campaign and the biased national press were shocked and mortified to discover that their little gambit blew up in their faces late on election night. And the world has not been the same since.
Leftist Institutions Set Themselves Up for Trouble
It is not only the NFL, late-night comics, the Clinton campaign, and the US national media that underestimated Trump — and continue doing so. Underhanded leftist institutions from the universities to the foundations to Silicon Valley and China-enthralled corporations such as Apple and Ford, are slowly discovering that making unwarranted assumptions about the new US President can have unfortunate consequences for them.
The crusading and parasitic left has been sucking the life and blood out of the US population and the US economy for almost 30 years, and is understandably reluctant to give up on its rich and easy pickings. Trump is an imperfect reformer with many deep faults, but he sees much more clearly than his enemies can allow themselves to believe. That misreading on their part can come back to haunt them.
