HYPOCRISY: Remember when Obama said he’d talk to any foreign leader without pre-conditions? – In a wide-ranging interview from the Oval Office that aired on Wednesday night with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, the president acknowledged that he would be willing to listen to foreign governments if they approached him with information on a political rival.
“I think I’d want to hear it… I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” the president said. “If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”
Moral indignation erupted from the TDSing Left (and pious jerk Mitt Romney) who haven’t said anything about Obama-Clinton supporters in the FBI, DOJ, and State Department not just listening to, but actually using false information from a foreign source to damage Trump.
MEDIA BIAS: A May 2017 study by Harvard University researchers found that CNN’s coverage of President Trump was 93% negative –
CNN and NBC’s coverage was the most unrelenting — negative stories about Trump outpaced positive ones by 13-to-1 on the two networks. Trump’s coverage during his first 100 days set a new standard for negativity.”
CNN reporter, Jim Acosta, maintains, “There aren’t two sides to the story when it’s a matter of right and wrong.”
In other words, if the media appears to be 97% biased against Trump and all those who support him, it’s ONLY because these deplorable individuals ares on the wrong side of 97% of the issues.
OBERLIN COLLEGE: Hit with maximum penalty – “Oberlin College tried to sacrifice a beloved 5th-generation bakery, its owners, and its employees, at the altar of political correctness in order to appease the campus ‘social justice warfare’ mob. The jury sent a clear message that the truth matters, and so do the reputations and lives of people targeted by false accusations, particularly when those false accusations are spread by powerful institutions. Throughout the trial the Oberlin College defense was tone-deaf and demeaning towards the bakery and its owners, calling the bakery nearly worthless. The jury sent a message that all lives matter, including the lives of ordinary working people who did nothing wrong other than stop people from stealing.” – William A. Jacobson
