Check out President Trump’s latest series of tweets regarding his string of meetings with world leaders across Asia. Depending on whether you are a Trump hater or a Trump supporter (or even just neutral), you will either be filled with howling, seething rage and indignation or else you’ll fall over laughing, at least at the tweet about Kim Jong Un.

It’s amazing to see the stark difference between the warm welcomes, deals, concessions and good press Trump scored abroad and the petty criticism he received in the US media. The latest concocted controversy is the claim that Trump believes Russia didn’t try to interfere in our election (he actually said he believes our intelligence agencies that Russia did try to meddle, but he was being diplomatic in saying that Putin “believes what he believes” because we need to get past that and work with Russia on important issues.)

One media figure was so desperate to slam Trump, she cited a story that had already been retracted twice.

Have none of these people ever heard Will Rogers’ definition of diplomacy? It’s “the art of saying ‘Nice doggie’ until you can find a rock.”

I actually kind of feel sorry for the American press. It must be really hard work, when Trump is signing $250 billion worth of deals with China or getting commitments from other nations to help stand up against North Korea, to have to keep constantly coming up with petty attack stories, like accusing him of overfeeding koi fish or being a buffoon because he ordered a hamburger in Japan instead of sushi, like Obama did. The Japanese didn’t seem offended. In fact, the burger restaurant was so swamped with Japanese customers ordering what Trump had, their stock went up 7 percent.

Trump has a point: when Obama actually bowed to foreign leaders, or Hillary went to Putin with a prop reset button in her hand, did the media attack them as weak? No, they called that “smart diplomacy.” They even kept on calling it “smart diplomacy” no matter how many times it proved to be incredibly stupid. Frankly, I’ll take Overfed Goldfish-gate over the Iran nuclear deal any day.

I think most unbiased observers (if there are any left) have figured out by now that no matter what Trump does, it will be depicted as wrong, horrifying and OUTRAGEOUS by the American media. If he’s non-confrontational with Russia and China, it’s proof that he’s weak and easily manipulated and unfit for office. If he did confront them to their faces, it would be proof that he’s a crude, undiplomatic hothead and unfit for office. This is why so many Americans are tuning out the news media. It’s like having a radio that plays nothing but the Emergency Broadcasting signal 24/7.

    My wife and I began a trip visiting past president estates in Virginia in Washington, DC during summer of 1963. On the Capitol steps a camera crew was filming six people holding signs. On the evening news, we saw those six people waving signs in cropped view along with audio sounding as if they were surrounded by a larger group. I have viewed suspiciously news reporting ever since.

    I just don't listen to any of them anymore. I go to a couple of different truthful links I have. I even get my weather off line. Don't even watch the news to find out what it is going to be doing outside. I am so tired of all the drama they seem to be into, and pushing their own agenda.

    Mike, let us start a poll to give to our representatives in Congress that We The People DEMAND a total and abrupt end to all the wasted taxpayer money being wasted by. All this special investigation of Russian collusion (witch hunt). Enough is too much at this point. If our government is by the people for the people then we DEMAND TO BE REIMBURSED as this is malfeasance of office. Our congress is entrusted to be representative of all our directives and as I see it it is time for them to give an accounting for their ludicrous actions. We do not want to wait" 'till we get you to the polls" but we must stop this madness Now. You write it, we sign it as a court actionable mandate to our Gov't. There must be a legitimate way to pressure our reps (House and Senate) to bring them into check. Then we start on our judges next. Our righteous activism and much prayer WILL have an effect ,but we must have one voice to men and before God with a pure heart. Pray about it, that God will give the wisdom and the blessing that this will require, that He is satisfied that the nakedness of the liberals and dems have been exposed enough. So we may live quiet peaceful lives praising our God.

    I guess Terry McAulliffe took some foreign kind of math if and when he attended school. As of 6:16 PM 11/14/2017, according to the world population site, the USA population was 325,322,804. SO, if McAulliffe 's math that 93,000,000 are killed every day in America, we took exactly three+ (3.46) days to eliminate the whole population of the USA, so that wouldn't leave anyone live for him to govern. , if anyone is stupid enough to vote for the goon.

    Sushi versus a burger? Guess the know-it-all media didn't know about Kobe beef? And did any of the MSM 'explain' that Trump was following the lead of his Japanese host when he dumped the rest of the box in the koi pond? Nope. We occasionally watch the MSM so we can laugh at how they twist themselves into pretzels reporting fake news, or such earth-shattering pieces on Melania's shoes. Seriously, reporters? If you're going to write fantasy, go somewhere else.

    Regarding Roy Moore, I have left several comments concerning the allegations toward Roy Moore but after seeing a tweet from a woman from Gadsden who claims "it was common knowledge that everyone knew about Roy Moore dating teenagers". I want to let it be known that I too was a teenage girl in Gadsden back in those days and her statement is NOT true. I worked at Captain D's when I was 16 and 17 and Roy Moore came in there many times. Sometimes with his mom and dad and sometimes alone and he NEVER said or did anything inappropriate. He was always very friendly and behaved like a gentleman. I also worked at the mall and waited on him there and never once did I hear anyone say a negative thing about him. No one warned me about him and he never did anything to make me think he was anything but a nice man. So to clear the record...EVERYONE IN GADSDEN DID NOT have a bad experience with Roy Moore and was not in the loop of gossip about him. Sick of this drama!!

    "$250 billion in deals with China" Why surely he must be colluding with the Chin)ese!

    OK, I think I've had enough of the media helping The Republican elite go after Roy Moore. Let's just have the FBI, CIA, and NSA start a project to uncover all the secret underage encounters with members of the Congress---certainly Moore isn't the only one. For those they just happen to find something on, we'll just expell them like McConnell wants to do to Roy Moore. Let's not just pick on one man. Let's go after them all. Then, we can start with those who work for the mainstream media. Sorry for being so cynical. I'm so fed up with all the underhanded theatrics of our politicians and the media, that I'm ready to see something radical happen to shake everything up.

    I so agree with you, and commenter Jozwiak has a great point, too - that your daughter is doing a fantastic job. Bravo, both of you!

    This comment goes to the Colin Kaeppernick section (no links found):
    GQ made him a "Citizen of the Year". So, a "citizen" is someone who resents his own country, disrespects its flag, national anthem and their patriots who died defending her? A "citizen" causes national division? A citizen creates less interest from customers towards the company he works for? A "citizen" causes a reduction of profits to the businesses that directly or indirectly sponsor him? A "citizen" is someone who is hated by most true citizens but revered by a few anarchists? Just because a magazine declares him "Citizen of the Year" is he really the "Citizen of the Year". Remember, when Michelle Obama was declared by some liberal media "One of the most beautiful women in the world"? Which world? Their world of fantasy?

    I wonder sometimes how a person can report ridiculous "news" without laughing. I rarely watch the World News. Thankful that CNN is not on my cable. What really bothers me is that many people believe claims made by a person without evidence and say if another person corroborates the first person that is evidence when it's just their word. In our day of no absolute truth, people will accept whatever they want to accept as truth.

    I totally agree with you, Govenor. There is absolutely nothing that POTUS can do to please these people. Like the kids say, "Haters gonna hate" We don't watch anything but Fox news. It's a shame when people in other countries are amused by our biased media. I believe Mr Trump is doing an excellent job. He can't be bought & he is not a politician. They are so afraid of that. He can straighten this country out if just given a chance and a little support instead of all of this nonsense.

    I'm in Australia and we often see your recycled rubbish news redistributed by our local media hacks. I also hardly tune in anymore, its simply not got any value except to destroy

    I have always been a "news junkie", waking up to the news and news at noon and before bed. I hardly ever watch it anymore.

    You are absolutely right. We are tuning out the mainstream media. We have not had cable at our house for 10 years. We look for non news to watch on our local stations and read on our smart phones. Your my favorite among several news sources. Thank you for taking the time. I love common sense.

    You are absolutely correct in everything you’ve said. Sad state of affairs we have in this country. I appreciate people like you who will tell it like it is.
