By Randy DeSoto. Who the real enemy Donald Trump and his fellow candidates face came into clear focus during Wednesday night’s debate in Colorado, and it is not Hillary Clinton or each other, it is the main stream media.
Sean Hannity had Trump as a guest on his program following the debate and observed that the real loser of the event was the media. He said the debate revealed just “how bad” the media is towards Republicans. He gave the example of CNBC moderator John Harwood, who called Trump’s campaign “comic book” in his first question to the candidate . . .
As reported by Western Journalism, Sen. Ted Cruz later came to Trump’s defense, as well as other candidates on the stage.

This shift comes as Trump fights to maintain his position as the untouchable front-runner and the national favorite of conservatives. After months of dominating the field, other candidates now pose a threat, especially retired surgeon Ben Carson, a fellow non-politician who is leading in Iowa.
In front of a crowd of several thousand people at the Nugget Casino here, Trump took a handful of questions from the audience, but none from reporters as he once regularly did. He touted his instincts, leadership style and negotiating skills. And he pitched himself as someone who thinks like them but has the power and acumen to enact their dreams.
