Trump can't win with media

November 11, 2017

We know most of the press has adopted the Jimmy Kimmel mantra that everything President Trump does is “bad, bad, bad.” But it’s a little much when they claim that it’s equally bad, bad, bad when he does one thing and when he does the exact opposite.

Case in point: during Trump’s very successful tour of Asia, where’s he’s being greeted warmly and winning diplomatic and trade concessions, he said that he didn’t blame China for taking advantage of terrible American trade negotiators because they were just looking out for their country. Honestly, that sounds pretty obvious to me. But the press dived on it, blasting Trump for turning so diplomatic after he’d run on campaign rhetoric about China “raping” us on bad trade deals. They accused him of coming across as a weak leader.

Of course, when he made the original aggressive comments, they accused him of being undiplomatic and unfit to represent the US to China. A simpler explanation might be that he used campaign rhetoric during the campaign and diplomatic rhetoric during a diplomatic visit, but that wouldn’t let them employ the one-size-fits-all “everything Trump does is bad, bad, bad” template.

Even more annoying, though, was seeing members of the Clinton and Obama Administrations, such as Madeleine Albright, take to the cameras to denounce Trump for not denouncing the Chinese to their faces. Fox News’ Laura Ingraham had a perfect response to that: a list of ways in which China repeatedly rolled over Obama without a peep from him and a montage of photos of Albright smilingly lifting champagne flutes with such world class tyrants as Vladimir Putin and Kim’s dad/predecessor, Kim Jong Il. People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw champagne bottles.

    It's the unsaid things that make me feel his message comes from his heart & soul.. for example the way he stands with his arms & hands out and palms facing out towards us. It's difficult to be insincere while taking that stance.
    I think he's a superhero.

    I was a democrat but I considered voting for Romney in 2008 but when i heard Paul
    Ryan say: "I am a Catholic & I would make abortion illegal", I voted for Obama because Biden said: "I too am a Catholic and I would not want abortion for my family, but I can't tell the other women what to do.". Yes, abortion is killing a human being .but so does the electric chair and so does war. Killing is self defense & self preservation. For this election I saw Trump and I said :L love him" and I'm too old for an abortion I love him and I threw abortion under the bus for Trump. Abortion is a religious issue, very sad. All death is sad. Just because an unborn baby is innocent does not give it more value than that of the murderer. His mother should have aborted him. All lives are precious but all lives will be lost some way some time. I love Trump because his spirit is alive. He is brilliant. He sees things happen before they happen. People who don't love him are on another frequency. Love comes from the soul.

    Damned if you do and damned if you don't. Which is it "Main Stream Media"? Can't get your facts straight? Can't tell the truth? You might as well admit that alternative news sources are eating into your profits and your integrity.

    You may want to call me a conspiracy theorist, but my research ,facts, progression of circumstances through the years, (and intuition) tells me that the Dem party has been infiltrated by a well organized movement with a deeper, future purpose, to bring America down to the same level of all other countries for the purpose of creating a one-world-order. Whether the players in this movement actually recognize the true purpose or planned outcome of their actions, I do not know, but I'm sure that some do, especially the more well-to-do, and one of the top controlling players is George Soros, who, it has been reported, pays rioters to riot. Obama is an organizer, not a politician, an attorney, and constitutional expert, so he knows how to twist the constitution and laws to fit his purpose. Hillary admired and studied Saul Alinsky who wrote the 8 commandments for taking over a government and turning it socialist, (or maybe even communistic), and all 8 have been implemented in the U. S., with the seventh being implemented as Common Core in schools, which dumbs kids down, makes them followers and not thinkers, with some schools reported as teaching Islamic culture and values to our children. The eighth commandment is government controlled healthcare, Obamacare. I fully believe that Donald Trump ran for President, because he saw what the Dem's were becoming, because he knows how to bring America back. I also believe Donald Trump has dedicated, possibly, the last years of his life to saving America from this fate. This is God's America, and God gave us Donald Trump! And I wish someone would put out the word on what's really driving this liberal agenda against Trump. As for the media, most are probably funded by Soros in some way and say and do anything they can to stop President Trump,

    True. No matter what Trump does and says, it's going to be wrong. He's wrong when he doesn't follow political games (Uhm...not being a political gamer was a big part of his being elected.) He's wrong if he does follow political games. He's wrong if he doesn't say and do what past Presidents have, and he's wrong if he does. People cry about comey being fired--but up until the time Trump fired him, liberals were screaming he should be fired. Unfortunately, msm portrays everything about him is bad, and even make up stories, or take 3 words out of a speech to try to point out his shortcomings, ignoring the context of the words. Thank goodness for conservative news outlets/programs where sanity reigns. Of course, liberals want all that shut down, too many people are tired of the liberal kookaid and look to other places for real news and analysis. Keep up the good work, Governor!

    Governer, excellent synthesis. Hypocrisy has become the norm, it undermines our system.
    exponentially in the information age. More of an effort to program the citizenship than advance our common causes. Another view, the Democratic party never stops campaigning. And you should be very proud of your daughter, a light of reason in an echo chamber of deceipt.

    I believe he win every time! It's the press that's loosing. Every time they try and attack him it lasts only a few days and then more often then not President Trump is proven right.

    When I think of President Trump I think of a bible verse in 2
    Timothy 1:7. " For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. "

    I am so ashamed of the people of this country. Never have I seen a president attached like Trump is. I didn’t vote for Obama and didn’t like his policies, but net said horrible tho gs about him. Most polls are terrible, all of our friends that voted for Trump woukd do it again. Unfortunately I live in CA. A native and 3 rd generation but both of our children and 1 grandchild moved out. Talk about a horrible place to live theses days. I live in Sonoma County know for fires and liberals. They all put down Trump. If President Trump walked on water they woykd day it’s because he can’t swim. We have good Health because we have Kaiser but our grandchildren have huge deductibles and high payments. If you work you pay, but if you are illegal you get everything free.

    I agree with you, Governor. President Trump cannot and likely will not ever get a square deal with most members of the press.
    One thing: I am so very proud of Sarah and the terrific job she is doing, dealing with the press daily.
