Gag me!

Fully 91% of the broadcast network coverage of Trump’s campaign was NEGATIVE.  He won anyway, but the Left Stream Media hasn’t changed its tune.

In 2008, they oozed and fawned and wet themselves with excitement, cheering what geniuses Obama was appointing and how cool he seemed about it all.  MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said he believed his job was, not to report the news, but to help the president succeed.  For the good of the country, of course.

In 2016, they’re ignoring the qualifications of Trump’s appointees as they yammer about some alleged “turmoil” in the transition team and accuse Trump of picking racist old white guys.  So much for the good of the country.

    I was going to do a whole post on this subject,but,as usual,Chrissy beat me to it.
    A Thanksgiving getaway fit for a President! Inside the VERY flashy Mar-a-Lago resort where Trump is spending the holidays surrounded by gold furniture and marble fittings
    Donald Trump paid $10million for the exclusive Palm Beach resort in 1985 and wanted to redevelop it
    The mogul was blocked from turning the site into ten mini mansions by officials in Palm Beach, Florida
    Instead, Trump turned the historic building into an exclusive private members club for the super rich
    Would-be members have to pay a one-off $100,000 ‘initiation fee’ along with annual dues of $14,000
    YOU CAN BE ASSURED THEY WILL SPEND THE NEXT 4 YEARS WHINING ABOUT TRUMP’S WEALTH AND OPULENT LIFESTYLE.BOTTOM LINE IS,IT’S HIS MONEY!HE EARNED IT HIMSELF!HE’S NOT SQUATTING ON SOME BIG DONORS’ ESTATE IN HAWAII OR MARTHA’S VINEYARD.GET USED TO IT.

    Trump turning away intelligence breifers since election win
    President-elect Donald Trump has received two classified intelligence briefings since his surprise election victory earlier this month, a frequency that is notably lower — at least so far — than that of his predecessors, current and former U.S. officials said.

    A team of intelligence analysts has been prepared to deliver daily briefings on global developments and security threats to Trump in the two weeks since he won. Vice President-elect Mike Pence, by contrast, has set aside time for intelligence briefings almost every day since the election, officials said.
    WHERE WERE THEY WHEN OBAMA BLEW OFF ALMOST ALL HIS BRIEFINGS.HE MET WITH HIS CABINET SOMETHING LIKE TWICE IN AN ENTIRE YEAR.TRUMP WAS ELECTED 17 DAYS AGO.THERE’S A LITTLE BIT TO DO BEFORE HE TAKES OFFICE.BESIDES,I THINK HE’S THE KIND THAT WILL DELEGATE CERTAIN TASKS TO PEOPLE BETTER PREPARED TO HANDLE THINGS.THERE WILL ALWAYS BE NIT-PICKING,THOUGH

      I don’t recall them making any hay out of John Kerry’s wealth and opulent life style (like that yacht) or of the extremely costly golf club membership Joe Biden has. They talk a lot about how hateful we are, but “by their fruits we shall know them.” They’re the only ones I see actually behaving hatefully.

    In impassioned defense of press freedom, Christiane Amanpour condemns Trump’s treatment of journalists
    MY FAVORITE FOREIGN HACK
    HAVEN’T HEARD FROM IMAWHORE FOR A WHILE
    I was chilled when the first tweet after the election was about ‘professional protesters incited by the media,’” Amanpour continued. “As all the international journalists we honor in this room tonight and every year know only too well: First the media is accused of inciting, then sympathizing, then associating — until they suddenly find themselves accused of being full-fledged terrorists and subversives.”

    Rosie O’Donnell Asks If Trump’s Son Barron Has a Mental Disorder–It Goes About As Well as You’d Think
    They say that in politics you leave the president’s young kids alone, but that didn’t stop entertainer Rosie O’Donnell from going after her nemesis Donald Trump’s 10-year-old kid on Twitter.

    THIS IS A SHY 10 YEAR OLD WHO’S SUDDENLY BEEN THRUST INTO THE PUBLIC AND IN THE MEDIA’S CROSSHAIRS
    JUST WHEN YOU THINK THEY’VE HIT BOTTOM THEY PLUMB A LITTLE DEEPER.
    Trump and O’Donnell have had bad blood for years.
    Barron Trump Autistic? if so – what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic https://youtu.be/yZAd5Pu9iw4 via @YouTube
    The whole thing went over about as well as Trump calling O’Donnell a “fat pig,” with many making the point that Rosie took things way too far this time:

      Utterly unacceptable. And the “fat pig” has kids of her own, too. She should totally know better.

      As the grandmother of an autistic 7 year old, I am truly outraged at her “caring” attempt to diagnose autism based on a few moments t.v. viewing. Mama and Lil Buzz had to fly to a distant city to see an autism specialist who examined him up close, in person, and at length before diagnosing him.
