    “Everything that Trump is doing conforms to the rules of social media,” he said in a Facebook video posted late last week. “You don’t get fewer followers when you insult somebody on Twitter, or say something outrageous on Twitter, you get more followers.”

    “If you’re on a reality TV show, and you’re the villain, the villain is often the star of the reality TV show and, in fact, we were wrong,” he continued. “We thought Trump had left the world of entertainment, had left the world of reality television, and climbed over the wall into the world of politics. In fact, what he did, was he took the world of politics and he pulled it over the wall into the world of reality television.”

    Jones compared Trump’s ability to adapt to new media in the same way Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama excelled in new mediums better than any of their competitors.

    “Just like FDR changed the rules of the game because he mastered radio, he was able to take radio and just completely master that — then you had JFK and JFK was able to master television — new medium, new master, new president,” Jones said.

    What a fascinating fight...can the race card beat the Trump card, or vice versa? Square deal or fair deal,.it won't be a rare deal.
