During a recent rally in Georgia, Herman Cain lashed out at the mainstream media, accusing news companies of orchestrating an attack on Donald Trump in an attempt to sabotage his successful campaign. The former GOP presidential hopeful pointed to his personal experiences with Donald Trump as he blasted the media for dishonesty and misrepresenting the facts.
Cain, who ran for the Republican nomination in 2012, did not mince words during his speech in Macon, Georgia. “One of the reasons that I continue to set the record straight every day, as many of you know, is because you have a lot of people in the media and the establishment that are trying to bring down Trump with lies,” he said. “I knew Donald Trump before he made the decision to run for president.”
“Let me tell you a little something about the definition of an outsider,” Cain continued. “If you are born in the United States of America you are an insider, through-and-through. There are no outsiders. If you’re born here, you’re not an outsider.” Trump has been referred to repeatedly as a political outsider, compared to the likes of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, for his lack of time spent in public office.
“’We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal’” Cain said, quoting the Declaration of Independence. “’That they are endowed by their creator – not man’s, not the Democrats – with certain inalienable rights, among these life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ It says, ‘when any form of government becomes destructive of those ideals – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.”
“We have some altering and abolishing to do with a new leader in the White House. My name is Herman Cain,” he said, ringing in a clear endorsement for Trump. Despite media speculation that Trump’s campaign is on a downswing, the real estate billionaire continues to reference national polls that place him at the top of the crowded GOP field.
Cain weathered an attack from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who declared that Trump’s campaign would go the way of Cain’s and lose momentum as the first primary votes approach. “At least I was once winning,” Cain fired back, lambasting Bush’s modest performance in the polls. “Jeb Bush has been losing throughout his entire campaign. His problem is him.”
