The Donald Upstages Jeb Bush!

by Rich Scheck

Wow! For those like myself who find it hard to like Donald Trump and
support his presidential bid, what he did today was very impressive!

By requesting that CNN donate the profits from next week’s debate
to a variety of veteran’s groups, he not only ingratiated himself to millions
of military men but also to countless prospective voters who will find this
gesture both attractive and authentic.

Donald Trump just put CNN in an awkward position

On top of that, he timed this pronouncement perfectly to upstage Jeb
Bush’s Kennedyesque tax cut proposal that the former Florida Governor
put forth today during a Fox News interview.

Bush looked flat and uninspiring in promoting a compelling idea. The
newscasters seemed to be prompting him on some of the talking points.

By contrast, Trump always seems upbeat and spirited. This aliveness is
one of his chief assets and will help him in the general election against
the stiff persona of Hillary should he capture his party’s nomination.

Those eager to waylay Trump’s march towards the White House now have
a new hurdle to overcome as The Donald continues to generate momentum.
