The Trump-Media Free For All


Okay, most of you saw Friday morning's headlines....this time from CNN: "Trump's Chief of Staff Tries To Kill FBI's Investigation On Russian Influence On Election!"

Note, that in those headlines, you saw nothing about the FBI classifying that New York Times fiction about Russians and Trump's campaign "pure fiction".  The FBI investigated, found the NYT article unfounded, then shut up....after just issuing a brief statement that the charges were false.

So, Trump's Chief of Staff ran into the Deputy Head of the FBI at an engagement.  The Deputy Director told the Chief of Staff the Russian connection proved to be bogus.

So, CNN, who had piggy-backed on that NYT article for weeks, chose to go after what CNN thought was an improper communication between the Chief of Staff and the FBI.  Then, that too proved to be untrue, as later facts confirmed.

So, yesterday CNN's White House correspondent shows up at the White House for a press gaggle.  And were turned away at the door, along with the New York Times and Politico.

So, CNN flashes a large red banner..."Breaking News"...Trump Attempting To Destroy First Amendment."  That headline was followed by a dozen liberal talking heads decrying Trump's poor treatment of them.  

Did any of you shed a tear?  I did....tears of laughter.

Come on folks, you've all seen the liberal main stream media's monstrous ganging up on Trump, even before he was inaugurated.  Like the liberals they seek to indoctrinate, the press is still shell-shocked by Trump's election to the Presidency.  And they've been having a grand snit-fit every since.

Just look at the headlines this past month.  Eighty percent have been negative, the press picking at the smallest thing to criticize.  They have not learned the many lessons that came with this last election. And they have not learned that a wide swath of the American people perceive the main stream media as arrogant and biased.  Oh sure, I read that poll they published last week...the one that indicated the American people trust the media more than Trump.   I dare you to go and find out who published that poll...and that's all you need to know.

I tell you, people, I have not had this much fun in a very long time.  While I think Trump might be half crazed, I've come to believe we need someone half crazed in the Oval Office....someone who totally shuns the nicety of politics, rejects political correctness, and gives it to the press back in spades.  He's driving them nuts and I'm enjoying the show.  After all, how long has it been since we actually had a "wingman" in political office...expressing the same concerns that folks on Main Street are concerned about?

Let the games continue.

Post Script:  I'm currently involved in a writing project so my posts may become irregular for a bit.  Don't be concerned...I'm still kicking.....just very busy these days.

It's funny how CNN thought was an improper communication between Trump's Chief of Staff and the FBI but thought nothing about Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton meeting on a plane in Phoenix. I like the way Trump is treating the press and making them squeal.

Good example, Wally. There are tons of them on the Democratic side.

Just another sign of Trumps "Beholding to no one". It's also the Media's only source of news....FAKE. They make it up because Trump tells them nothing, they have nothing of substance to report. Watch ratings plummet even more as people realize there is no news on Liberal TV. Only fiction.

Trump doesn't play their game and it's killing them. The public seems to really like him because he's exactly what he appears to be, isn't concerned with polls, or PC, and is doing EXACTLY what he promised he would as a candidate. The MSM is trying to recapture the credibility they lost after 8 years of kowtowing to Obama, and the people aren't buying it. The left will never support him, and he knows it (which is why he hasn't "reached out" to the left - let them reach out to Trump).

Frank, Randy, as I wrote several times earlier, it's gonna get really interesting. And whether for good or bad, I'm certainly enjoying the show...the breakdown of a political correctness that has been killing us for a couple of decades.
