Corruption fighter Andy Martin explains why he still
supports Donald Trump for president, and why and how the media is destroying America.
Andy says the media attacks on Donald Trump, orchestrated by the Hillary
Clinton campaign, are going to boomerang and backfire and will probably elect
Trump president. Andy is en route to Chicago
where he will hold a Monday news conference supporting Trump and excoriating
Illinois Senator Mark Kirk. Andy calls the media assault on the Republican
Party’s presidential candidate “a de
facto left-wing coup attempt to nullify the votes of the American people.”

says massive hypocrisy accompanies the latest political attacks on Trump;
Trump’s “sex tape” remarks, while deplorable, are mostly blather and hardly

(CHICAGO) (October 9, 2016)
“I would like to explain why I still
support Donald Trump for president,” says corruption fighter and maverick
Republican Andy Martin.
“During the past couple of days media hypocrisy and
corruption have reached a new high, and the American people are now under
assault by a left-wing media’s attempt to stage a de facto coup against the
American people.” Andy is en route to a Chicago
news conference where he will defend Donald Trump and attack Senator Mark Kirk.
“Donald Trump’s vulgar speech decades ago is no surprise. It
has been a staple of media controversy since Megyn Kelly’s original question
fourteen months ago at the first Republican candidates’ debate. What is new is
the way the media are trying to starve the presidential campaign of substance,
and are acting as an arm of the Clinton
campaign by spewing forth Hillary’s sexual smut about Trump as legitimate
“The Washington Post reporter who received the latest Trump
‘sex tape’ knew his source. In other words, unlike the claims of the New York
Times that an envelope mysteriously appeared in the Times mail room with
excerpts from Trump’s tax return, reporter David Farenthold admits he knew his
source. Well, who was this ‘known’ source? Obviously a Clinton
“A generation ago, in the 1990’s, Bill Clinton’s sexual
adventures in the Oval Office coarsened this nation’s conversation. Today
another Clinton, Hillary, is coarsening the nation’s politics by seeking to use
sexual smears to defeat Donald Trump. The Clintons
are both despicable human beings.
“Let’s look at the reality of what Trump has called a
‘distraction,’ and what is nothing less than Hillary’s effort to cheapen our
politics with irrelevant sexual smut.
1. Hypocrisy is in flower, thanks to the Clintons,
“It is clear that Clinton’s
dirt diggers and friends in the media are the source of the latest sex tape,
and perhaps there are more to come. But what of it? What is relevant about Donald
Trump’s pathetic conversation on a bus eleven years ago? Our free commercial
television is saturated with sexual innuendo and increasingly with sexual
artifice. Cable television is flooded with sexual images and activity. What,
exactly, about Trump’s potty-mouthed nonsense is so essential to our national
conversation? Nothing but grabbing more power and money for the Clintons.
They are literally defacing our national political season with their obscene
“Hypocrisy is in season. Who was among the first to jump on
Trump? Why Jeb Bush of course. But Bush had a mistress in Tallahassee
and a full-blown sex scandal when he was governor of Florida
David Letterman has been prominently featured for calling Trump ‘damaged.’
Compared to Letterman, Trump is a choirboy. Letterman was a sexual predator on
the stage of his own late-night show. Letterman was notorious for his sexual
predations on his staff. Letterman literally had to apologize for his misdeeds.
Now he is a ‘conscience’ for men of morality? Letterman is ‘damaged,’ not
2. The 1960’s are still with us
“Fifty-five years ago I went to work as a busboy in an
excusive restaurant to support my ‘family,’ a 1955 Plymouth
Most of the waiters and busboys cracked gross jokes and acted out gross memes.
In retrospect, it was what the world looked like in the Mad Men era. Then I
went to Illinois
football. There was real ‘locker room banter’ in Memorial Stadium, not Trump’s
“Donald Trump not only grew up in another era, he grew up
two eras ago. His language a decade ago still reflected the period when he was
a teenager and college student.
“Hillary also has a potty mouth, but no one mentions that
fact. What about Hillary’s swearing and abuse of public servants such as the
Secret Service? Silence from the media. Another cover-up.
“Is Trump the only candidate who talks trash? They both do.
3. Trump’s fibbing finally catches up with him
“I first met Trump in 1978 or 79. I see him in my church
occasionally, and have been to Mar A Lago. I don’t see him trash talking today.
Back in the 70’s? I am sure he did. But most of what Trump has always said was
fibbing. He lied about his buildings; do you suppose he didn't exaggerate about
his women as well?
“Celebrities do get away with behavior that is scorned by
ordinary people. Is that an inaccurate statement worthy of endless repetition
on cable TV? Eleven years ago Trump was a celebrity, nothing more. Is it
surprising that he said celebrities get special treatment? Not to me. Trump’s
language, looked at in isolation a decade latter, is despicable. Looked at as
part of his typical theater of banter, exaggeration, fibbing and sheer
nonsense, he was merely being in character while trying to impress a
lightweight like Billy Bush.
4. The coming backlash and boomerang of the American
“If Hillary Clinton plans to conduct her campaign for the
next month by releasing sex tapes and garbage from the Howard Stern Show - the
latest source of ‘news’ on CNN - and
other lurid locations, and the media fosters her filthy strategy of polluting
our national conversation, there will be an incredible backlash and boomerang
against the media and against Clinton.
“Trump will win the presidency.
“Trump has never denied who he was and what he was; his
history of over-the-top behavior is what made him a credible candidate in the
first place. But do we really need to listen to Hillary’s continuing release of
smut just because she can’t run a campaign and can’t win on her own issues? I
don't think the American people will stand for Hillary’s strategy. She is polluting
our nation with unnecessary sexuality the same way her husband did a generation
ago. The Clinton’s are bad people.
“The fact that the liberal media, which have launched an
unprecedented campaign of personal destruction against Trump, are supporting Clinton’s
‘smut strategy’ is disgraceful. Trump’s imbecilic language was maybe worth a
brief mention or two. His remarks a decade ago should in no way be allowed to
disrupt a discussion of the issues.
5. Hello evangelicals: there is no sinner like a reformed
“Evangelicals know something about sin, and sinners. They
know that reformed sinners can be the straightest people of all. I suspect
Trump would be a very ‘straight’ president in the White House. He is a reformed
6. Trump better have a “Checkers” moment ready
“In 1952, vice presidential candidate Richard Nixon rescued
his candidacy after a disclosure of a slush fund used to fund his personal
expenses. Nixon gave the famous ‘Checkers’ speech and saved himself. I hope
Trump has a Checkers strategy ready. He needs one.
7. Finally, I would rather be led by a jerk than a crook
“There is always the chance that I am right, that Trump is a
reformed sinner and that he would be a decent president. How could he be worse
than Hillary, who is now exposed by Wikileaks as calling for open borders? I
“I do know for sure the Clintons
are crooks. They have sold out our nation from the Secretary of State’s office
the same way they sold out the Lincoln Bedroom when they were in the White
House. Let’s be honest: the Clintons
“Honestly, if I have to choose between being led by a jerk
or a crook, I will choose the jerk every time.
“I am not going to condemn most of those who have dumped
Trump; many of them weren't supporting him to begin with. It’s a free country
and both public officials and candidates are still entitled to run their own
campaigns. But I hold a special contempt for Senator Mark Kirk. Kirk is a sick
man. One of his arms has to be lashed down to a wheelchair. He can’t walk. He
can’t speak. His mind is squiffy. Kirk’s doctor’s concept of ‘cognitive
recovery’ is a joke. The Republican Party has no business supporting a sick man
for the strenuous job of U. S.
Senator. Yet Republicans have no problem supporting a vegetable like Kirk,
while they condemn Trump for goofy remarks he made over a decade ago.
“I vote in New Hampshire
so I can’t vote against Kirk. But Kirk is a disgrace to the Republican Party. I
would dump Kirk before I would dump Trump.
“Donald is quite right when he says he has done some stupid
things. He has. He has done a lot of bad acts. He has committed a lot of sins. But
as between the Clinton’s cravenness, that probably cost some Americans their
lives because of Hillary’s skeevy server, and Trump, who is a genuine patriot,
I will stand by Trump every time.
“Please join me in supporting Donald Trump. He’s not a
perfect choice. But he’s clearly the best choice for president,” Andy says. “Bill
Clinton disgraced this nation with his sexual appetites and misconduct. Unlike
Trump, who is a blabbermouth, Clinton is a rapist. Bill Clinton defiled our
national home. Hillary defended her husband the rapist and excoriated his
victims; now she is flooding our national conversation with irrelevant
sexuality to detract attention from her own failed campaign and failed
“Someone should step down as a candidate and withdraw. And
that’s Hillary, not Donald. Hillary is the real disgrace.
“As for the media, they are trying to stage a coup and
deprive the American people of a rational and informed presidential campaign.
The media are carrying Hillary Clinton’s dung, and they should and will be held
accountable by decent American voters.”
