“FAKE NEWS SITES ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY!”
Yesterday, a garbage-filled, liberal website posted lies, misinformation and libel in a weak, vulgar attempt to slander our incoming President. The progressive cable network, CNN, jumped on board immediately and spent their day on air slandering Donald Trump and others.
Today, President-Elect Donald Trump held his first press conference since winning the Presidency last November 8th. Where was the candidate Donald Trump who had responded rapidly to insults and was more excitable, boisterous and insulting? He was not needed.
Today, the American people saw the wisdom in their decision to make Donald Trump America’s 45th President.
His intelligence, grasp of issues and calm manner deflated the media.
Their tactic has been muckraking, repeatedly throwing lies, half-truths and questions at politicians. Their strategy was that if you repeat something frequently enough, the non-thinking, non-analytic audience would believe the lies and innuendos. Using that tactic and strategy, elite politicians in America’s recent history lost and the elite media won. Politicians would stumble over words, utter things never meant to be said and on occasion, unintentionally speak truth.
But, Donald Trump was the Conductor today.
The media’s ignorance of the United States Constitution and her laws became glaringly clear when they had no questions about what President-elect Trump is doing to distance himself from the magnificent, all-American enterprise that he has built.
The attorney with Morgan, Lewis and Bockius shut them down by citing the original law and its amendment that clearly states that United States Presidents are not required to separate themselves from their businesses and financial holdings as other, elected officials must. She then outlined all of the non-required steps our new President is taking to show Americans that his energy and actions for the next eight years will focus on what is good for the American people and to “Make America Great Again”.
At the event’s conclusion, Mr. Trump said that after eight years, he will review his enterprise and either say, “Good job!” to his surrogates or say “You’re fired!”
The media will eventually learn, or not, that events like today’s and Donald Trump’s tweets are what Americans are using and will continue to use to evaluate the 45th President.
We no longer need the lying mainstream media with its fake news to tell us what to believe. What we hear or read and what it means need no longer be filtered to us through the distorting lens of the mainstream media. Sooner rather than later, Americans are likely to tell this mendacious media, “YOU’RE FIRED!”
The media came into that press conference with muckraking as their intended goal. Instead, they were given their comeuppance and raked over the coals by our new President.
Good job, Mr President! Happy 2017-2024!
