It seemed like Trump totally bombed at the NRA - (CPAC TV Production Values)

He was more off script than on - and the applause he received wasn't rally-like.

A few times it seemed like he was waiting for applause - and there was none.

He had no central theme at all - he was like 20 minutes in and "oh yeah guns..."

All he had to do was 10 minutes of solid 2nd Amendment-isms with some bumpers of "how great I am"- and he's out of there.

Maybe conventioneers are a different demographic than rally-ers? Dare I say - a "smarter" group?

And for TV - this had the same creepy production value that that CPAC had.

I think they must put the media in the back to express their displeasure with them.

The result is - all the camera shots are heavily zoomed - not really lit for TV - and look generally creepy.

And they had the audio feed with an out-of sync delay - that created a weird echo.

They didnt fix that until 2/3 of the way though speech.

Overall - I thought this was one of Trumps weakest moments.

To add testimony - look at this FreeRepublic Thread about the speech...

Barely 40 posts before they start whining about Shepard Smith.

Most Trump speech threads get a something closer to 200 comments over there...this was odd - and at the NRA too!

2. Well he did get outraged responses from ER docs in the UK, and from the French

Government. So he gives his fans more things to grieve-rage on.

4. Yeah. He's a great mass media impresario.

Fails at everything he prides himself in.
