Here’s an example of how Trump faced a staked deck last night at the 2nd presidential debate, but still managed to win.
Trump was making the point that it’s foolish to telegraph what the military intends to do before they take military action. He’s right. That’s what the Democrats do and it allows the enemy to prepare and react before in kind. It’s a stupid way of doing things and Trump argues keeping all military action secret and keep the enemy I the dark. So Martha Raddatz takes it upon herself to defend Obama. She’s supposed to be the damn moderator.
As reported by Fox:
Trump: “Why do they have to say we're going to be attacking Mosul within the next four to six weeks, which is what they're saying? How stupid is our country?Raddatz: There are sometimes reasons the military does that. Psychological warfare.Trump: I can't think of any. I can't think of any. And I'm pretty good at it.Raddatz: It might be to help get civilians out.Twitter exploded with Raddatz criticism as a result. Trump adviser and former House speaker Newt Gingrich spoke for many: “Why is Raddatz debating trump? Isnt that hillarys job?”
Trump was right. It was 3 against 1.
