Trump Pees in Media’s Oatmeal

It’s not supposed to be like this. As long as anyone can remember, the ‘news’ reporters have had free rein in controlling presidential press conferences and even the daily briefings. Then Donald Trump happened. After an eight year vacation, the media finally went back to investigating … with a vengeance. They were as happy as a pig in slop when they forced out General Kelly, a better man than the lot of them. Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary, Andy Puzder, succumbed to intense pressure from the left over allegedly hiring an illegal to do his housekeeping. (I’d bet my retirement check most if not all of the people raising the hell have some questionable employees as well.)

[CtH: How freaking hypocritical is it of them to condemn Puzder for hiring an illegal when they PROMOTE THE HIRING OF ILLEGALS?!]

The president and PM Netanyahu held a joint press conference yesterday. Trump completely ignored ABC, CNN and NBC, instead calling on reporters from Townhall and the Christian Broadcasting Network.

Bibi Visits Trump And LEVELS Reporter Looking For A Fight- MEDIA DOWN!

President Donald Trump has walked in and is smoothing ruffled feathers and helping things to be strong and healthy again. And yet despite the incredible relationship that exists between Trump and Prime Minister Netanyahu the media is crying that Donald Trump is anti-semitic… seriously???

“There is no greater support of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than president Donald Trump,” Netanyahu said resolutely. “I think we should put that to rest.”

Trump DESTROYS ‘Hateful’ Palestine During Visit with Netanyahu

Palestinians are hateful and evil. They are taught to love death and the highest honor in this lifetime for them is to kill Jews and infidels. John Kerry literally told Israel, you can be Democratic or Jewish, but not both.

Remember When: Hey Liberal Media, This Is Probably Why President Trump Didn’t Call On You Today
Our own Katie Pavlich asked President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about how to deal with Iran after their blatant violations of the nuclear agreement and what compromises both the Israelis and the Palestinians need to consider in their ongoing conflict with one another. These are legitimate questions.

As Cortney noted, the liberal media was ignored and they went into full meltdown mode. CNN’s Jim Acosta said that the “fix is in” concerning who will be able to ask the president questions, describing Townhall as “a very conservative website.”

[CtH: “A very conservative website” whose representative asked a really good question, as opposed to the Gotcha Flynn gloating CNN probably had planned!]

I’ll just leave this insufferable exchange between former President Obama and the Chicago Tribune’s Christi Parsons after his 2012 re-elect win to show why we probably shouldn’t be shocked that the Trump White House is taking questions from outlets who used to be left in the dark.

Angry ABC in ‘Open Hostility’ at Trump for ‘Shutting Down’ Free Speech

In the post-press conference coverage, Vega ranted, “I want to tell you about the open hostility right here in this room. You know, I’m sitting right here kind of in the middle of the pack of a number of journalists, mainstream reporters, if you will, and there is open anger in here about the fact the President did not take any real questions about the issue of the day.”

[CtH: You mean like the “real questions” you used to ask your BFF Barack?]

Karl sneered that Trump called on “friendly conservative news organizations.” He lashed out:

“Amazing that on a day like this he could have a press conference and not face a single question on the big story of this, the New York Times bombshell report that members of his campaign allegedly had contacts with the Russians during the campaign. No questions on that.”

[CtH: No, the questions were about ISRAEL, because, you know, their PRIME MINISTER WAS VISITING and THAT WAS THE TOPIC OF THE PRESSER.]

The question of the day, according to Vega, was Michael Flynn’s resignation.

Speaking for other journalists, she raged, “And so, you’re feeling an open sense of anger and frustration here.” Reporter Karl sputtered, “George, it is astounding. We have now had four presidential news conferences and the President, for the most part, has simply avoided calling on people from news organizations.”

[CtH: The ARROGANCE of them deciding who is and who isn’t a news organization!  After the tingly legged, softball throwing, pillow fluffing these “real” news orgs didn for the past eight years.  But hey, KEEP IT UP, MORONS.  Cuz we’re really looking forward to EIGHT years in the TRUMP White House.]

CNN Reporter Says ‘The Fix Is In’ With Conservative Media and the Trump Administration

“The two questions that were asked or called upon from the president in this news conference went to the Christian Broadcasting Network, which is obviously owned by Pat Robertson, the televangelist down in Virginia. It’s a very conservative broadcasting network, and, which is a very conservative news website,” Acosta said.

[CtH: And not a word about how GOOD those questions were, just sneering at the sources of the questions.  This is a variation on the logical fallacy of arguing from authority. But golleeeeee, I’m just a loathsome conservative blogger, so what do I know?!]

13 Hard-Hitting Questions Mainstream Reporters Asked Obama

Mainstream reporters are outraged that conservative media outlets are receiving a significant share of questions at White House press conferences.

Only liberal reporters, the line of reasoning goes, are capable of asking the tough questions needed to hold those in power accountable. Here are a sample of questions asked of former President Obama by mainstream reporters.

1. “Golf, what does it do for you?” – CBS
2. I’m wondering if you think that [Republican presidential candidates are] uninformed, out of touch, or irresponsible?” – CNN
3.“Do you have a vindictive streak?” – NBC
4. What has “Enchanted you the most from serving in this office?”- NYTimes

    Mainstream Media Reveals the Real Heroes of Flynn Resignation News Cycle: The Mainstream Media

    Since Flynn’s resignation, reporters couldn’t stop giving themselves enough credit for their investigative reporting.

    “This is a big moment for investigative journalism,” CNN host Brian Stelter said.

    “It’s the leaks and great journalism that lead to what we are talking about,” CNN host Brooke Baldwin said.

    “Others might be looking at it as the press having scored some points against this White House,” CNN senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson said.

    ‘He wanted me to get rid of the blacks’: New details emerge in massive 400-page FBI file on the investigation into whether Donald and his father Fred racially discriminated against minorities in the 1970s

    A total of 389 pages were published online by the FBI’s FOI website Wednesday
    Included in the documents are interviews with former tenants, staff and bosses
    In one interview a former employee said Fred Trump was biased against ‘blacks’
    ‘Fred Trump told me not to rent to blacks,’ the manager was quoted as saying
    Fred and Donald Trump had a discrimination lawsuit filed against them in 1973
    They would later enter a consent decree settling the litigation in 1975 – but in it there were not any admissions of wrongdoing by them or the Trump company

    Betting Sites Say Trump Likely To Be Impeached

    The gambling website Ladbrokes has the odds of Trump either being impeached or resigning before the completion of his term at even, and has half odds that he will not be reelected in 2020.

    Additionally, the betting site Paddy Power currently has 4-to-1 odds that Trump will “cease to be president” in 2017, and half odds that Trump will not finish his first term. The site is also offering a 2-to-1 odds that Trump will be impeached.

    SkyBet is posting 7-to-1 odds that Trump will not be president as of July of this year, and is slightly more optimistic than other sites that Trump will complete a full term as president.

    All sites find it incredibly unlikely that Donald Trump will be awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize.

    Pitiful libs hold virtual ‘Trump Impeachment Party’ complete with a theme song to express euphoria
    Although the song does little more than spell out and repeat the word “impeachment,” it was enough to get the party started and send Trump-haters into a frenzy of euphoria.

    The perception of the Obamas celebrating Trump’s demise isn’t far off the mark. Recent reports indicate that former President Obama is working hard behind the scenes to sabotage Trump’s presidency.

    The ever-bonkers Rep. Maxine Waters openly called for Trump’s head on a platter. The California Democrat apparently thought he could be impeached simply because she didn’t like him.

    How Convenient — Fed Turning Hawkish Just In Time For Trump

    What’s truly bothersome is that the central bank kept interest rates near zero for nearly the entire Obama administration (one measly quarter-point hike in December 2015 and another in December 2016 was all), even as White House officials bragged about the roaring recovery from Obama’s bogus “stimulus” and the Fed talked up “full employment.” There was a disconnect between rhetoric and policy.

    So why did the Fed dawdle during the Obama administration, but now seems in such a hurry to jack up rates under Trump? Was it, again, because Trump wants tax cuts and infrastructure spending, which some at the Fed (wrongly) view as inflationary? Is the Fed phobic about economic growth?

    Mika Brzezinski Firmly Says Conway Will No Longer Be Booked on Morning Joe: ‘She’s Not Credible Anymore’

    But after what Brzezinski calls a never-ending cascade of “fake news, [and] information that is not true,” the MSNBC anchor is saying no more.

    “I know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show; I won’t do it,” Brzezinski said Wednesday morning. “Every time I’ve ever seen her on television, something’s askew, off, or incorrect,” Brzezinski continued.

    “I will say: Kellyanne Conway does not need to text our show, just as long as I’m on it” the Morning Joe cohost continued in the 6 a.m. hour Wednesday, “because it’s not happening here.”

    Leftists are attacking President Donald J. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, for daring to sit behind the president’s desk in a photo taken in the Oval Office with President Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

      They also got all over OFFENDED about a beautiful photo of her at the WH, snuggling her infant while taking a call. The hate is way out there.

    Ted Cruz Introduces Two-Page Bill To Abolish Warren’s Consumer Agency

    “Don’t let the name fool you, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau does little to protect consumers,” Cruz said in a statement.

    “During the Obama administration, the CFPB grew in power and magnitude without any accountability to Congress and the people, and I am encouraged by the actions President Trump has begun to take to roll back the harmful impacts of an out-of-control bureaucracy,” Cruz said.

    House Votes To Scrap Obama Limits On Drug Testing Those On Unemployment…

    The House voted Wednesday to dismantle an Obama administration rule that Republicans say restricts the ability of states to prevent drug users from receiving unemployment benefits.

    The rule, which was published in the Federal Register last August, was meant to implement a law that requires people receiving these benefits to be able and ready for work. The law gave states the option of denying drug users these benefits.

    Al Sharpton helping R.J. Reynolds maintain menthol market

    Tobacco giant R.J. Reynolds, the top seller of the menthol cigarettes favored by most black smokers, is seizing on the hot button issue of police harassment of blacks to counter efforts by public health advocates to restrict menthol sales.
    Reynolds makes Newport cigarettes, the most popular menthol and the No. 2 U.S. cigarette brand overall, with a market share of nearly 14 percent.

    Matthews, Thrush Hype What a ‘Consolation Prize’ a Trump Investigation Would Be for Clintons

    On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews and New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush happily speculated that the idea of the Trump administration being hit by a special prosecutor (regarding the Mike Flynn fallout) would be “one of the richest ironies and perhaps the biggest consolation prize for the Clintons” following the 1990s and 2016.

    Rep. Tom Reed came away from a White House meeting Thursday reassured that there’s nothing more to the issue that recently led to the firing of President Trump’s national security adviser: contacts between the Trump team and Russian officials.

    “I am very confident after talking to the president personally and candidly that there’s just nothing there on the Russia issue,” said Reed, R-Corning.

    Kudos to Wegmans for their common sense response to anti-Trumpers’ call for boycott.
