Some talk sense, some understand what is being said, some just don’t

Mike Ditka weighs in: ‘I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick’.

“I think it’s a problem — anybody who disrespects this country and the flag,” Mr. Ditka said. “If they don’t like the country, they don’t like our flag, get the hell out.

“I see opportunities if people want to look for opportunity,” he added. “Now, if they don’t want to look for them, then you can find problems with anything. But this is the land of opportunity because you can be anything you want to be if you work. Now, if you don’t work, that’s a different problem.”

Then you’ve got Kelly Riddell on The apoplectic liberals — “The media is failing, they argue, because it can’t convince the public that Trump is Lucifer.”

Pulitzer-winning New York Times columnist Nick Kristof wrote the media shouldn’t be treating Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump the same — that there’s a so-called “false-equivalence.”

One you see, is a reasonable, but flawed politician. The other is a monster who will take down the Republic.

The media’s also been there to push crazy liberal-conspiracy theories, and to shoot down reasonable Republican ones.

The other factor at play — something that Mr. Trump’s supporters seem to understand, but the press and its fact-checkers simply don’t get — is that Mr. Trump deals in hyperbole.

Perhaps the media should stop preaching from their podiums, and actually start seeing the world through other people’s eyes — however imperfect they consider those eyes to be. For that’s the first step in understanding, and it’s been the press’s biggest failure this election cycle.

Thomas C. Stewart is wondering When ‘deplorables’ took back their country — “Will Donald Trump lead a second Jacksonian Revolution?”

We know that like Andrew Jackson, Mr. Trump can be brusque, strong-willed and single-minded. But isn’t that just the kind of man it takes to really shake things up in Washington? If it takes a little spilled liquor, smashed china and muddy carpets to put the people back in charge, I say bring them on.

so go read the Washington Times for yourself. Awareness is there and maybe some might rub off on you. There are things to think about. That basket of irredeemable deplorables are humans, too, and some are becoming aware that shoving the feelings and thoughts of others off the stage might have consequences.
