President Trump's Press Conference

August 16, 2017

President Trump’s surreal press conference yesterday was like watching a scene from a gladiator movie. The press seemed to think its role was to jeer and turn thumbs down, while Trump waved his sword and defied their demands for his head. Yesterday’s top outrage was Trump’s explanation that he didn’t immediately make a specific attack on the white supremacist protesters on Sunday because he didn’t yet have accurate information about what had happened and wanted to wait until he got the story right. Naturally, the press wasn’t buying that; if they waited until they got the story right, there’d be hardly any coverage of Trump at all.

It was also interesting to see how many liberals on social media slammed Trump by saying that he often tweets before he has all the facts. And they slam him for that, too. So now, on a subject this important, they want him to do the thing they routinely slam him for?


Commentary continues below advertisement


He did single out the white supremacists for special denunciation at the press conference, which is as it should be. They are absolutely vile. The idea of elevating one race over another is an affront to God. But he stuck to his assertion that there was bad behavior on the other side as well. Even media accounts that lambasted Trump admitted deep into their stories the inconvenient truth that the Antifa protesters did show up with weapons to disrupt a permitted protest.

If you want to see a great example of how a story can be slanted by a headline, try this:

“Trump Doubles Down on Blaming 'Both Sides' of Charlottesville Riot, Compares Lee to Washington and Jefferson”

    I lived in Arkansas when you were Govenor. I would have voted for you for president if you had got the nomination. I am not very political and have no ax to grind, but I do ask myself the following:

    Is all this Trump bashing coming from this organization, Organizing for Action (OFA)? Is the OFA behind all the groups and individual people who continually push hate towards the president Trump and towards constitutional government in favor of the all of me and none of you style of the former president Obama and his anti this, that and everything being espoused by the Ridiculous media. Should the FBI or IRS investigate the OFA tax free status compared to their activities?

    Thank you Mike for keeping us informed. So important in a democracy. How can a man who is praised by community leaders for initiatives in helping inner cities be accused of racism ? The reason Trump is so hated is that he speaks out of a sense of honesty and fairness. Whereas so many politicians and journalists are seeking popularity.

    You better look in the mirror before you use the words "violent ways" White nationalists; militia movements; anti-Muslim attackers; I.R.S. building and abortion clinic bombers; and other right-wing groups were responsible for 12 times as many fatalities and 36 times as many injuries as communists; socialists; animal rights and environmental activists; anti-white- and Black Lives Matter-inspired attackers; and other left-wing groups.

    There's a plaque that hangs on the wall after exiting the Holocaust Museum in DC. "Never forget what you've seen here today lest we forget." This may not be verbatim, but close. The same words of wisdom surly should apply to the Civil War.

    Hey Mike,

    Writing you this letter, asking you to sponsor a new sports team I've thought up. Have all the players, the name, all at the ready. It's called the "Charlottesville Traitors." OK I know! Just listen. Picture the A team. I call them the demorats. B team-the rhinos. Kinda hard to keep them on the field though. Seeing as how they run for the dugout everytime a foul ball is hit. And of course the C team. Probably the most talented at what they do than any. They're the liberal news media! Now isn't that 'spacial'. A is for real dude. Don't worry; it doesn't matter what sport they play. They'll slither into any game with ease. Don't plan on winning the superbowl anytime soon though. All they ever do is sit around running their mouths and complaining about how awful the coach is. But boy can they talk!!! So how about it? Think you could spare a quarter to invest in my dream team? OK! I know. That's a little on the expensive side. A guy can dream can't he!
