From Fox News to ABC to MSNBC everyone was congratulating Hillary Clinton on winning the nomination of the Democratic Party; meanwhile they still call Donald Trump the “presumptive nominee”. How does that work?
Hillary won most of the states on Tuesday and got most of the delegates and is still short of the magic number of 2383 needed to win the nomination. She has 2184 delegates but she has been crowned the nominee.
On the other side of the isle, Donald Trump clinched enough bound delegates to solidify his nomination, yet they still call him the presumptive nominee.
If you count the unbound super delegates, then Hillary has the amount needed for the nomination, but that doesn’t happen until July 25th at the Democratic Convention. Still the media is all calling her the nominee.
People all over cable news networks are congratulating her on being the first woman nominee, but it isn’t done yet.
Is this a tactic to force Bernie to get in line? With the “first woman nominee” narrative, it sounds like it is done deal when it is not. It looks like they are just trying to shut down all the Bernie momentum and to make him look bad for continuing, and the media is pushing the narrative.
On the other side, they still call Donald Trump the “presumptive” nominee, why? Is it to plan the seed in the public’s mind that he still can be replaced? Is there still some things that the GOP can do during the convention to elect a different nominee?
This has been an unprecedented primary season and it is only going to get worse during the general election.
It is going to be hard for anyone to beat Hillary if she has the media pushing a false narrative that benefits her campaign. Especially when they work the opposite way to project Donald Trump in a negative narrative.
The whole thing is baffling when you think that the “first woman nominee” for President of the United States has almost every network behind her campaign at the same time that she is under criminal investigation by the FBI.
