Media Poke Honey Badger… Get Bit

After eight years of fawning, butt-kissing, and constant tongue baths, the media have resumed their adversarial role to the new president. Following up on scurrilous, unsubstantiated smears the press were drooling over the opportunity to savagely attack The Donald and treat him like meat before ravening hyenas. They found out an unfortunate fact of life. Prod a dangerous creature and you could wind up having a real bad day.

The Media Is Outraged That Trump Criticized CNN. They Must Have Forgotten When Obama Did The Same To Fox News
The media was furious after Donald Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter at his first press conference as president-elect Wednesday
The press was incensed, but why did Barack Obama not generate the same outrage when he repeatedly criticized Fox News and questioned its legitimacy over the last eight years?
YOU’VE SEEN THIS:

CNN’s Sciutto Calls Colleague Jim Acosta ‘Brave’ After Trump Press Conference Diss
THESE BOTTOM-FEEDING SCUM THINK IT’S FUNNY TO DISRESPECT REPUBLICANS. IT’S GREAT SPORT.

Sciutto discussed the ordeal soon afterward and jumped to his colleague’s defense, calling Acosta “brave” for what he did.
“If I could just add this: a lot of charges were leveled at CNN, including my brave colleague there, Jim Acosta,” Sciutto said.

Killing CNN
Yesterday, Trump made it crystal-clear to CNN that they have crossed the red line – you know, the one Obama dared the Russians to cross in Syria. They crossed it, and Obama whimpered. Trump is done with red lines. He is building a wall, and CNN is closed out of Trump’s news conferences. He flatly refused to allow them to exercise the pretense of journalism by refusing to permit them to level questions at him during his presser.


NY Magazine: Trump ‘Owns the Press’ at First Press Conference
But observed as spectacle, Trump came away with a resounding victory. That’s because Trump won even before he stepped before the microphone, by making the media the story. Last night, BuzzFeed published a salacious 35-page oppo-research dossier on Trump that alleged Russia possessed sexual and financial dirt on Trump that could be used to blackmail him.
Journalists receive oppo research frequently during political campaigns, but publish only what they can verify. By amending this standard for Trump, BuzzFeed handed him an opening to play the victim. Trump thrives in a world where facts are fungible.
“We are now fully immersed in the anonymous, the unverified, and the unverifiable. And he hasn’t even taken office. Trumpism sure is fast.”

    Whoopi Goldberg: Republicans Have to ‘Trust’ BuzzFeed Report on Trump, Russia

    Her comment appeared to reference the 2016 presidential campaign, when Republicans cited leaked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s hacked account that were published by WikiLeaks.

    “Y’all set the bar. You set this up. You said we should trust all this,” Goldberg said. “Well, now we gotta trust this, too. It’s not good for the goose and not for the gander.”

    Sasha Obama Skipped Her Father’s Farewell Speech To Study For An Exam

    The camera then panned to a visibly moved Malia and Michelle Obama. But one question remained: where the heck was Sasha?
    As it turns out, the 15-year-old was at home in D.C., studying for an exam she had on Wednesday morning.
    DOES ANYBODY THINK SHE TAKES HER OWN TESTS?
    SHE’S A PERSON OF PRIVILEGE;SHE GETS THINGS DONE FOR HER.

    On His Way Out, Obama Moves To Make National Elections Less Secure

    With almost no notice, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson announced that his department was designating the nation’s elections system as “critical infrastructure,” thereby giving DHS greater control over how states run their own elections
    Both the National Association of Secretaries of State and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission complained that DHS didn’t bother to work with state officials, or answer their questions, before making its decision.

    Mattis Wanted To Strike Iran In Retaliation For Killing US Troops, Obama Denied Him

    Iranian-supplied rockets killed as many as 15 U.S. troops per month in Iraq in the summer of 2011, and Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis had a plan to retaliate. The Obama administration denied his request.
    The plan was to make it clear to the the Iranian government that providing rockets to its Shiite proxy insurgents inside Iraq was no longer going to be tolerated. Mattis suggested a nighttime strike against a power plant or oil refinery within Iranian territory.

    Rep. Gutierrez to skip inauguration to protest Trump

    Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, an Illinois Democrat who for years has led the push to legalize illegal immigrants, said Mr. Trump’s past remarks about racial and religious minorities — and particularly women — are ‘something I can never un-hear.”

    “Sorry. That is never OK,” Mr. Gutierrez said in a speech on the House floor.
    Instead, he said, he’ll participate in a women’s march a day later.

    Michelle Obama To Jimmy Fallon: “I Feel Like Crying”

    MAJOR HURL ALERT!
    The first lady — who considered not moving to Washington when her husband was first elected president in 2008 because she did not care for the attention that came with the role — told Jimmy Fallon that her emotions were unexpected.
