Well, this could be interesting! Project Veritas to unleash hours of behind-the-scene video of a major TV network. :w00t: 

 

One by one Trump's opponents were trounced about as soon as they began personally attacking him.

 

Hmm... looks like the media isn't as smart as they think they are because they're the main group of jackasses that are personally attacking him now. :lol:

Somewhat related..............As you’ve probably heard by now, the Washington Post revealed a new motto today across all of its platforms: “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

As you may well imagine, they are being (deservedly) mocked all across the land.

Do they really have to spell out a bad line from Star Wars III?

That almost suggests there were lines that weren't bad.


NOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Personally, I would parody it by hitting up the pop psychology aspect of it: "Try to realize the truth.  There is no spoon."

This presidency is too much to stay retired. I'm sure you guys are pissed I'm back, but I can't resist. This is some made for tv entertainment right here.

You want to talk about the media's portrayal of Trump, but what about how Donald and his administration have portrayed themselves?

1. He hastily rushed out a sloppily done EO on a Muslim ban. He calls it a Muslim ban and at the same time says it isn't.

2. They referred to a terrorist attack in Atlanta on at least three different occasions.

3. KellyAnn Conway said there was a massacre in Bowling Green.

4. He insinuated there was a terrorist attack in Sweden. Whether he did that on purpose or not is irrelevant.

5. He had numerous opportunities to condemn antisemitism. He finally did, but he should've done it a while ago. Especially when asked about it by that Jewish journalist.

6. He spoke about himself at the CIA headquarters.

7. He falsely claimed he had the biggest inauguration turnout.

8. He falsely claimed he had the biggest victory in election history since Reagan.

9. He refuses to condemn Russia for interfering in the election.

10. He mishandled Flynn's situation, by taking too long to fire him.

11. He said he doesn't watch the fake news and at the same time he said he watches them all the time.

All this in one month. If he's being portrayed negatively by the media it's deservedly so.

Most of this is really petty unimportant stuff.  The big federal gov issues in no particular order are debt and fiscal responsibility, jobs and the economy, national security, illegal immigration and health care reform.  The rest is just noise and the media is doing a great job of making noise about all kinds of meaningless stuff.   Trump isn't going to win on style but he is off to a good start on winning the big important issues.

I agree. It's refreshing to see a guy follow through with his promises. He can save himself the trouble by choosing his words more carefully, though.
