The audio is part of a Spanish-language program I understand is based in Colombia. My source tells me this was not included in the audio posted at the program’s site (An English translation of the article can be seen here). About 50 seconds into the audio, one can hear the word “cazando,” which means “hunting.”
According to my source, an immigrant from Ecuador, Ramos says he has been “hunting” Trump for “many weeks,” no doubt as part of an effort to publicly humiliate the outspoken media mogul.
Ramos says he got to the Iowa event quite early in order to get in front. In other words, he set out to confront Trump. He wasn’t interested in asking questions as he has told a number of talking heads, including Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.
On Thursday, Newsbusters’ Jorge Bonilla wrote:
Ramos does not normally leave the comforts of his Miami citadel, unless it is for assignments of his own choosing. He certainly does not pound the pavement along with the press corps that is covering the campaign trail. When you consider this fact along with his actions at the press conference, the only reasonable conclusion is that this entire incident was pre-planned and pre-crafted for maximum impact and ratings.
Coincidence? I think not. I also don’t believe it’s a coincidence this audio has not gotten more coverage in the U.S. media.
There’s a lot here, and we’ll be addressing and dissecting it in more detail as time goes on. It’s important to understand, however, that Ramos, despite his claim, is clearly gunning for Trump.
