Leave Donald Trump Alone

       The name Donald Trump and his often hysterical comments have been played repeatedly on air throughout the media. What does Donald Trump think about this and what did Trump say about that? Everybody who watches television has heard about the now infamous verbal battle Donald had with Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly. The duo squabble initiated with Megyn's charging statement: "You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals," Trump interrupted her while smiling charmingly,"Only Rosie O'donnell". Kelly kept pushing it, "For the record, it was well beyond Rosie O'Donnell. You once told a contestant on celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president, and how will you answer the charge from Hilary Clinton, who is likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?" Donald Trump replied "I don't frankly have time for political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn't have time either," ( Klein, 2015).
       Trump continued "Honestly, Megyn, "if you don't like it, I'm sorry. I've been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn't do that." And the war of words, preconceptions, misconceptions, among news commentators, journalists, politicians (especially presidential candidates), and the everyday Jane and Joe have been rolling since. America has heard from companies, celebrities, presidential candidates who have been jumping up and down criticizing Donald Trump. The Great White and Blue has also been hearing from commentators, everyday people, including women who have come to Trump's defense. The nation, funnily, has also heard from people representing both political parties and the general public who are simply sick and tired of hearing the name Donald Trump altogether.
       When looking at the situation and trying to determine right and wrong, one cannot help but look back at the both 2008 and 2012 presidential elections and how the media so influenced the thinking of American voters and the American citizen cannot afford to fall for it again. I agree with Donald Trump, to some accord. yes political correctness has controlled for too high of an extant the decision making of both the people elected into power and the voters of this country. Political correctness has dragged America down economically and socially and we don't have time for it. Political correctness has influenced American leaders in making crucial decisions involving one practicing his religion in school or another being able to freely run his own business guided by his personal religious beliefs. Now, Donald could have made his point in a much nicer tone, but that is Trump, that is how the guy communicates and Megyn Kelly with all her years of experience being a journalist knew that or at least she should have known. She at least should know that if she was going to charge at Donald Trump with a tough, personal question he was going to charge right back at her, no holds barred. She should be ready to handle his sharp/rude replies without turning the debate into an emotional Megan versus Donald "Primetime Smackdown".
       Donald Trump has a point, America is in trouble and this country has to be ready to make some tough decisions. We have important decisions to make. One of them is deciding who is going to lead this country after Obama leaves Washington and we cannot allow people like Megyn Kelly to make that decision for us. I mean, Megyn Kelly is nice. She is smart, entertaining but it is not her job to be trying to influence who we want to vote for the Republican nominee. It is not her job to fight for woman's rights while officiating the Republican Presidential Debate. That is not what the program is about nor is the debate her forum. If She is angry with Trump about comments he made in the past about women then she should set up a personal one - on - one with him and allow the two to squabble it out on their own time. If viewers wish to entertain themselves watching such a debate, fine. Air it, but just not during the time when we are supposed to be hearing the Republican presidential debate. This is a presidential debate to help America decide who they want to represent the Republican Party during the presidential race not hear her to bicker about woman's rights. And I have no problem with woman's rights. I love woman. I just don't believe that the subject should be the centerpiece for the Republican Presidential Debate. America has much bigger challenges that it is facing at this moment of time.
       If Donald Trump is a sexist and if he is totally anal against women then America is capable of figuring it out themselves and deciding whether they do or do not want him to be elected as president. If Donald Trump's previous comments regarding women are indeed demeaning and make automatically make him ineligible to become a US president, that is up to the American voters to decide. America does not need Megyn Kelly to weed out our presidential candidates for us. That is not her job. Her job is to simply ask the candidates the tough questions and to ask them in an unbiased manner.
       Since Donald Trump announced his run for the 2016 presidential office the media and other political candidates have been bashing Donald Trump left and right. Every other comment from a journalist has began "how do you feel about Donald Trump when he said blah, blah, blah." "Do you think that Trump was appropriate when saying blah, blah, blah?"  The presidential race is about selecting who is going to be the leader of the United States of America, not the media being Donald Trump's personal babysitter. What about ISIS, the conflict occurring between Russia and Ukraine? the conflict occurring in Syria, how long America plans to keep troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan. What about the continuously growing conflict between the Christians in this country and those who are atheist? There is a growing number of children in school who are living in poverty. They are going to school everyday without eating breakfast. Arguments and clashes like the ones between Trump and Kelly are the type that spoiled people engage in who are clueless about the real problems that are occurring in America. I know that a lot of people will disagree with me but women's rights is not America's top problem. Women's rights is a problem and women do need to be treated better but compared to poverty, lack of jobs, low wages, sky rocketing school fees it is not America's highest priority. And even if it is, people like Donald Trump still deserve to be able to get up in front of the camera and be respected because he is a US citizen like everybody else, who pays his taxes and has contributed both financially and economically to the growth of this country.
       In the 2012 presidential race the media contributed greatly towards helping President Obama win the election. The media refused to discuss Obama's failed economy and practically ignored the occurrence even when Republican candidate Mitt Romney tried continuously to bring it up (Trump Defends His Treatment of Women, 2015). Right after the Libya attack in September 11, the media initially reported Obama as being a hero and reminded voters of his power as commander in chief. But as news began leaking portraying Obama as something different than a heroic commander, news of Benghazi was pushed aside to the sidelines. Media moderators like ABC's Martha Radditz and CNN's Candy Crowley ran heavily biased, left leaning debates frequently interrupting  Mitt Romney and bombarding the discussion with an often Liberal program.
       The media, even right leaning stations like Fox news has often shown to be incapable of being fair to each politician. That is the main reason why I always make every effort to not allow CNN or Fox news influence who I want to be elected for a government position. Donald Trump makes some interesting comments regarding ISIS. He said he will knock them out and then take the oil for America. "They have great money because they have oil"(Heavey, 2015). He is right. Not only is he right, what he is saying is not rocket science. ISIS has a large abundance of oil as does Al Qaeda. Both own a ton of money because of it. Knock the crap out of them and then take their oil. Why not? He wants to build a high wall on the Mexican border. Yes that plan does sound crazy, but maybe he has a point? Maybe some kind of structure or force needs to be placed at the US-Mexico border to keep illegals at bay. Maybe the President and Congress can work on building some kind of structure on the American -  Mexico border to keep illegals at bay. I don't mean build an entire wall down the whole border line, but a partial wall, with some guards placed here and there. And there could be a plan created where border patrol will change the land areas where they are patrolling every few weeks or days. The government would keep secret the order of which areas they would be patrolling. It won't protect the border area 100% but it's a start.
       Whether Donald Trumps ideas are crazy or sane it is up to America to decide. I like Donald Trump. That does not necessarily mean that I will vote for him but his comments may affect who I decide to vote for. It is great to hear someone talk in front of television who is not afraid to speak up about certain things because of what groups like Planned Parenthood will say or what National Organization of Women are going to do. Left media has constantly insisted on branding anyone who disagrees with anything these organizations stand for as a male chauvinist or sexist. That is foolish. Planned Parenthood gets to be lauded for helping slaughter babies and one cannot criticize them? No, that is not the country America was meant to be. America is supposed to be a place where if I disagree with someone's opinion I can come out and say it without harassment. I should be able to disagree with Planned Parenthood and NOW and not be immediately labeled as someone who hates women. I should be able to hold opinions that differ from LGBT groups and not be quickly dismissed as a "bigot". This is the plan of the Enemy to quickly turn much of America from a pro-Christ mindset to one that is extremely secular and mainly anti-christ, many without even knowing it, through the immediate silencing of the voices of the individuals who disagree with him. Political correctness is commanding American people how they can and should feel concerning every single social topic. The decision is being made by popular Liberals who dominate the media air waves. It is agreed upon and praised by the Obama's and Clinton's in order to maintain their popularity especially with the younger generation and some minorities. And then a huge official stamp of agreement is forced upon the country determining what is and what is not accepted. Those who are not willing to follow the rule set is heaped upon them names and have their opinions drowned out by the media air waves and their brainwashed followers. Nobody is allowed to have their own opinion anymore, especially if it does not follow along the mainstream line of thinking.
       So leave Donald Trump alone Megyn Kelly. He is an American and is allowed to have his own point of view even if at times it is annoying. Even if you do not like it he is still allowed to have it. And though it surprises you and much of the media, a whole lot of people want to hear it.
