Media and politics go hand in hand, and more often than not, media outplay the politicians. Of course that doesn’t apply to Donald J. Trump, who turned his Mugshot into the biggest marketing poster ever. US Analyst Charles Ortel and Geir Furuseth discuss Trump and much more.
As the show was recorded on Thursday afternoon (from Tromsø in Northern Norway, a place Charles Ortel has promised to visit this coming winter) the mugshots from Fulton County Jail were not yet taken, but the the first Presidential debate for the Republican candidates had been held on Wednesday night. Even without Trump, Fox reported 12,8 million viewers, for their debate.
Charles Ortel saw that debate, too, but it looks like he and millions more found this much more interesting:

By this Saturday the tweet has reached 258.9M views.
Andrea Widburg’s piece on American Thinker lists seven truths about this week’s biggest media spectacle:
Seventh truth: If you indict a former president and the lead opponent (by far) to the current White House occupant, you will discover that there is a deep well of people who firmly believe in Alinsky’s fifth and sixth dicta: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.” “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” Between humor and imagery manipulation, this is playing out as a Trump victory, not a defeat. (The mugshot heard ‘round the world: Eight truths that the mugshot reveals, American Thinker)
Of course Charles and Geir didn’t spend all their time on Trump and Tucker.
Ukraine, and acting Chief Neocon, Victoria Nuland, were also on the list, and Charles shared his predictions on the upcoming week, which may become a tough one for the Biden Inc.
Before or after watching the show, you might find it interesting to have a look at some of the best Mugshot Memes on Social Media, courtesy of Breitbart:
