I never dreamed we’d have a president like this ever. That the #fakenews media malign, slander, and lie about the president and his family is to be expected when a Republican is in office. It’s who they are and what they do. That we have a president who returns fire and gives it right back to them is what’s so wonderful and refreshing and delicious.
Yesterday morning, President Trump sent out the following pair of tweets:
And then he went about his way like nothing ever happened. The #fakenews media and some Democrats went completely hysterical. I can’t pretend to know why President Trump chose those two PMSNBC #fakenews reporters, nor why he chose yesterday morning to drop his Twitter bomb, but I do know he’s playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers, and he stays about 10 moves ahead of his enemies.
The #fakenews media spent literally the entire day in a constant state of outrage over Trump’s tweets. I know this because I trolled several #fakenews reporters and a handful of Democrats, and their Trumped-up rage lasted well into the evening.
I do know that #fakenews personalities Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough have treated President Trump with the same disdain and contempt as the rest of the #fakenews media, and have consistently called the president’s sanity into question. It’s not like they’re innocent victims.
This is the way the president and his family are treated by the #fakenews media. Because of their outrage and the laughable assertion that President Trump’s tweets were “beneath the dignity of the office of president” (as though President Obama was the archetype of presidential dignity), the #fakenews media has revealed, almost to a person, just how thin-skinned its reporters really are. They couldn’t withstand one-tenth of the abuse they dish out. Yet they seem to want to hold the President to a higher standard of behavior than themselves.
The #fakenews media have treated conservatives and Republicans this way for generations. It’s worse now than I can ever remember, but they have rarely, if ever, been called on it. President Bush, for example, was maligned with much the same vigor as President Trump, but he never fought back, which infuriated his supporters. He felt that to respond to the #fakenews would be “beneath the dignity of the office of president.” And so the Democrats and #fakenews more or less destroyed his presidency during the second term because he never defended himself. Apparently, the #fakenews media believe it is within their purview to treat Republican presidents with any manner of hostility, rudensss, crassness, etc., but the president is not allowed to hit back. Trump says “Screw that!” and punches right back.
So what happened yesterday while #fakenews was fixated on Trump’s early morning tweets?
- The House of Representatives passed “Kate’s Law” and the “No Sanctuary for Criminals Act.” It might be a coincidence, or it might not be, but also yesterday Nashville Metro Council sponsors of bill that would have turned Nashville into a sanctuary city withdrew their bill. These are real-world matters with real-world consequences.
- President Trump gave a speech on energy in which he outlined an policy that will “unlock millions and millions in jobs and trillions of dollars in wealth.” His objective is to increase energy exports and make the U.S. less dependent on foreign energy.
- We learned that, according to Secretary of Defense “Mad Dog” Mattis, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has apparently heeded President Trump’s warning about not launching another chemical attack.
- President Trump hosted South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House, where they discussed the very real North Korean nuclear threat.
This was all in ONE DAY of the Trump presidency. While Trump was arranging all this winning, the #fakenews media obsessed over President Trump’s tweets about Mika’s facelift. It’s sort of like busy parent with a small child. The parent has some things that need doing, so he/she gives the child some blocks or a coloring book to keep him/her occupied while the parent accomplishes a few tasks. President Trump started the morning by giving the children who occupy #fakenews something to play with all day while he went about the business of making America great again.
The funny part — actually, there are several funny parts — is that #fakenews reporters are all snobbish liberals who consider themselves educated elites, sophisticated, erudite, and worldly. Yet they are so dense they have no idea what’s happening to them. They make fun of Trump voters such as myself because they deem us gauche and uneducated (and deplorable), yet we can see exactly what they can’t. As Rush Limbaugh analogised earlier this week, Trump is the guy with a laser pointer and the #fakenews reporters are the cats chasing the red dot, running into the sofa and running into walls. They don’t realize that we’re all laughing at them. While they consider Trump mentally unstable, he’s schooling them and manipulating them at will.
