Media can dish it out, but can’t take it

The media has been in an uproar ever since President Donald Trump started tweeting. Members of the media and the Hollywood elite have made threats against him and called him thin-skinned. But I believe he’s just defending himself from their attacks –  it is they who are thin skinned. They’ve never had a president come back at them before and it’s about time. They blame him for having a war on the media when they started it. If they hadn’t berated him from day one and had instead reported fairly there would not be all these daily barbs and fights. Now they accuse him of inciting violence.

They’ve never had a president come back at them – it’s about time. They blame him for having a war on the media when they started it. If they had reported on him fairly from day one, you wouldn’t have all these daily fights. Now they accuse him of inciting violence.

They can attack him but as soon as he attacks back they feign innocence in the melee. He put out a video of him from Wrestlemania ten years ago punching out an opponent with a CNN label over the opponent. Right away they get upset and accuse him of inciting violence.

Trump tweeted a video of him at Wrestlemania ten years ago punching out an opponent. The tweeted version of the video had a CNN label over the opponent’s face. Right away they got upset and accused him of inciting violence.

The New York Times is reporting on “criticism, disbelief and dumbfoundedness” in the wake of President Donald Trump’s tweet on Sunday in which the president is depicted wrestling and punching a figure whose head has been replaced with the logo for CNN.

Times’ personalities condemned the tweet as, among other things, a “call for violence against the media,” and “unseemly that the president would attack journalists for doing their jobs, and encourage such anger at the media.”

Unmentioned by the newspaper is that The Times stood by its decision to back the controversial production of “Julius Caesar” in Central Park in which Caesar was glaringly depicted as a Trump-like figure being brutally assassinated by Roman senators.

For those who doubted the play’s intent, the production also featured Calpurnia, Caesar’s wife, speaking with a Slavic accent resembling that of First Lady Melania Trump. (you can see the video here as many sites have since removed it.)

 CNN’s White House reporter, Jim Acosta, tweeted, “Reminder: The WH just said this a few days ago… that the president has never “promoted or encouraged violence.” Happy4thofJuly.”

They won’t condemn beheading or stabbing the president or calling his family insulting and demeaning names, but it’s Trump who is inciting violence. When Trump was beheaded what was the Clinton News Network and the rest of the MSM saying? Nothing! What about the New York Shakespeare play where Trump is assassinated? The MSM said nothing. What about the during the Obama administration when the blacks were calling for the killing of police officers? The MSM said nothing. They are the ones guilty of inciting violence.

The MSM had orgasms over Bill, Hillary and Obama. Chris Mathews even had thrills running up his leg from Barack. When Bush was in office they asked him what he thought about these protestors and his reply was, “I have a job to do and don’t have time for that,” which was also a perfect response. Trump is all for America and this is the first time they have someone coming back at them and their socio/communistic agenda and sticking up for the American people.

The Sunday morning tweet also came the day after the president decried “the dishonest media,” insisting that the “fake media is trying to silence us” and thwart Trump’s agenda during a speech at the Celebrate Freedom Rally in Washington, D.C.

“The fake media is trying to silence us. But we will not let them because the people know the truth,” Trump said. “The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House, but I’m president and they’re not. We won and they lost. The fact is, the press has destroyed themselves because they went too far. Instead of being subtle and smart, they used the hatchet. And the people saw it right from the beginning.”

“The dishonest media will never keep us from accomplishing our objectives on behalf of our great American people. It will never happen. Their agenda is not your agenda. You’ve been saying it. I will never stop fighting for you,” Trump added.

Much to CNN’s chagrin, Twitter ruled that Trump’s tweet did not violate the company’s rules against issuing violent threats. CNN noted that the company said it reviewed Trump’s tweet based on three factors: “the political context of the conversation surrounding the tweet, the various ways it could be interpreted and the lack of details in the tweet itself.” And according to Twitter, Trump’s tweet failed to violate those standards.

The liberal MSM has shown they can dish it out, but fold like cheap cameras when the tables are turned.
