One of the Democrats in the audience asked Trump if that’s how it’s going to be — a bumpy ride throughout the campaign and into the White House?
“Yes,” Trump responded sharply. “That’s how it’s going to be.”
Gasps all around. Poor devils, they are not used to a contender who speaks from the heart and without a teleprompter.
So fasten your seat belts, Mr. and Mrs. America, there will be blood between Trump and the news media as long as Trump stays in the picture – and there is no chance of a peace process between the two sides while 82 percent of the news media self identify themselves as card-carrying Liberal Democrats.
Poor devils, they are not used to a contender who speaks from the heart and without a teleprompter.
Over the past few months, even up to Tuesday’s tempestuous rock and roll and now historic Q and A, they’d been chasing Trump to produce the money he’d promised to deliver to various Veterans’ charities. So he called this meeting to explain, and explain he did.
He provided the names of the beneficiaries and the amount of cash that he’d handed over, which amounted to nearly six million dollars. About Hillary and the millions she’s been hoarding through foreign donations, nobody asks, and she has the nerve to demand that Trump open all his books pronto.
For Trump, it wasn’t about that – it was about The Washington Post and The New York Times and reporters far and wide chasing him down about EVERYTHING.
He’d taken enough. So he took this opportunity to call them “unfair” and “sleazy,” one and all.
Who me? they murmured. For Uber Conservative Bill Kristol, who’s gone loco against Trump, Trump had this choice reference – “Loser.”
Apparently Trump hurt the feelings of these of sensitive Liberal darlings who’ve been in the bag for Obama for 10 years. For all that time they never asked Obama a single question that would make him sweat. Who is he, where did he come from, where was he educated – and we still know nothing.
We do know that Obamacare and the Iran Nuke Deal were slipped through as we were sleeping and while the news media were snoozing.
But about Trump they awaken and they want to uncover every move he’s ever made.
They could not be bothered about Obama’s association with Rev. Wright, the preacher who damned both America and Israel in sermon after sermon.
The news media watched in silence.
They covered for him when he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia and for those three times when he snubbed the prime minister of our most enduring Middle East ally, the Jewish State of Israel, for which they will also never give a break or a fair hearing.
At Tuesday’s press conference they spoke up. For Trump they have endless questions and grievances.
“That’s our job,” they whined. “It’s our job to ask tough questions.”
Do they have a point? Of course they do. But never mind Obama, case closed and too late on that one, but where are the “tough questions” for Hillary? Only because of Fox News do we know about Hillary’s Benghazi debacle. The Liberals pretending to be reporters seldom if ever bring up that moment of unforgiveable neglect.
They mention her email follies only when absolutely necessary. About the Clinton Foundation scandals, this they won’t even touch. But against Trump, they won’t rest, won’t even take a breather – and watch them squirm and squeal when they’re confronted. They need their “Safe Space” for a man like Trump.
“He has no right to talk to us like that” — that was the near unanimous consensus among the commentators after it was all over with Trump that day. There they were on MSNBC, on CNN, and even on Fox News chattering about the media’s duty to “ask the tough questions.”
Tough only for Trump, it appears.
While the rest of them are a lost cause, it was surprising to hear Fox’s Brit Hume and Megyn Kelly join the cavalcade, and about Megyn, queen of chic power, love her or hate her, just released here is my late-breaking fictionalized scoop on her and the Fox News operation.
For Brit in defense of the news media, it was about being properly skeptical. For Megyn, it was about being properly cynical.
Agreed. But only if it works both ways. Otherwise, Trump is right. The media are unfair and totally biased.
