Trump’s Rigged Game

Two ways the candidate charges this election is rigged are absurd. The third is absurdly dangerous.

What does Donald Trump mean when he charges that the election is rigged?

.

There are at least three ways that Trump has applied the label. The first two are flatly absurd. But the third contains just enough truth to raise the specter of unrest, violence, and a destabilized democracy.

.

This usageriggedmay stem from thimblerig, a swindlers game played with three thimbles and a pea, like three-card monte. The sharp puts a pea beneath a thimble, and shuffles them around. His mark points to the thimble containing the pea, but when its lifted, theres no pea to be found.

.

From there, it seems to have jumped to the stock market, to describe brokers manipulating stocks in an illegal manner. By the early 20th century, it was being applied to sports games or elections. In every case, though, it describes a conwhere participants think its a game of chance or skill, but the outcome is actually being manipulated in an underhanded way.

.

But is that an accurate way to describe this election?

.

Media Bias

.

The press, you may have heard, is out to get him. Its a charge he levels at his rallies, which are broadcast with a frequency every other recent candidate for the presidency must envy; on his Twitter feed, where he speaks directly to millions; and in interviews, which are given prominent play in print and on screen.

.

On Sunday morning, he renewed his plaintive whining. He touted a Saturday Night Live skit as evidence of Media rigging election! And he complained that coverage of the women who have stepped forward to allege that he inappropriately ogled, touched, groped, or assaulted them is turning women against him. Election is being rigged by the media, he tweeted, in a coordinated effort with the Clinton campaign, by putting stories that never happened into news!

.

Its a charge his key surrogates have amplified. Eighty to 85 percent of the media is against him, Rudy Giuliani told Jake Tapper on Sunday. I think that without the unending one-sided assault of the news media, Trump would be beating Hillary by 15 points, Newt Gingrich said on ABC’s This Week.

.

Where to begin?

.

The media made Donald Trumps business career possible, and The Apprentice made him a fixture on the national stage. Perhaps no candidate in history has so masterfully generated wall-to-wall coverage of his every move. Outside of the Trump campaign, the media is more often blamed for facilitating his rise than for imperiling his chances.
