|President Trump gives masterful performance at press|
conference. Surprise: Mainstream media excoriates him!
Some outlets made a big deal about the president asking for a friendly reporter who posed an insulting question implying he's anti-Semitic. Trump shut him up. Good for him!
The president's performance was masterful. He stated in the press conference that tomorrow the media will say Donald Trump was ranting and raving and that's exactly what's happening. Look at Vanity Fair reporter Abigail Tracey saying that not only was he ranting but was "increasingly agitated." Hogwash! He was calm, funny, and he called it as he saw it. Honesty from a president! How refreshing. And his nose wasn't sticking up in the air to show how above it all he is like someone we had to watch for eight years.
Trump was grilled by the press for over an hour and he was calm, collected, and answered the questions openly (as far as I could tell since I couldn't always make out the question). Every criticism he made of the press is absolutely on target.
As a pro-lifer who spent years dealing with press reports on rescues and other pro-life events, I can personally testify to the unfairness of the media. I once had a Washington Post reporter come to my house for dinner and an interview. She enjoyed our hospitality and went on to treat me in her article with callous disrespect. She criticized the fact that I served meatloaf and mashed potatoes for dinner and mocked the fact that I was sitting "at the foot of the table" implying, I suppose, that I was a footstool for my husband. How did she know I wasn't sitting at the head of the table? She twisted everything I said and made a disparaging and superfluous comment about my hairdo. The photo accompanying the article gave my hair a greenish tinge. Maybe they were trying to imply that I was from Mars. Her bias was so profound that a number of letters responded with one taking her to task for her snide comments about my looks. I later found out her mom was associated with Planned Parenthood. No surprise there.
I was often the spokesman during those early rescues (before Operation Rescue, we were doing small rescues in the D.C. Metropolitan area going inside abortion mills and blocking the doors). Our side of the story almost never got treated fairly in those days. I once remember a picket protesting Maude's abortion. We had about 75 people on our side of the street. The pro-aborts had fewer than a dozen. The reporter (I think from the Post) never came over to our side of the street. It was par for the course. I still have a large notebook of articles that I saved depicting the media bias against the life issue.
So you can understand how people like me are thrilled to see the #HumptyDumptyMedia finally facing a president with the guts to call them out and to actually handle questions without a teleprompter. I expect his approval ratings to rise following the press conference. And I also expect the #HumptyDumptyMedia to take a further hit from regular Americans. The only ones who believe them any more are their own cronies.
One last comment. I had to laugh when the reporter (I think from CNN) expressed concern that Trump's derogatory comments about the press would damage the people's perception of freedom of the press. (Big guffaw here!) Was that a joke? The only freedom in the #HumptyDumptyMedia is for liberal politicians with liberal ideas and their liberal echo chamber in the celebrity circus.
Face it, Washington Post, NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, BBC, etc. ad nauseum.... We all know you are liars who report according to your liberal bias. Those of us with brains dismissed you years ago. Your days are numbered as your shrinking audience shows.
Here's the song for this post dedicated to the #HumptyDumptyMedia. Obama, Hillary, and company are gone. You're next!
