The more Trump keeps winning the more unhinged the media becomes. Recently Trump called Rush Limbaugh on the 30th anniversary of his show and stated that “the people have really been mistreated for so many years by the politicians,” Trump continued. “The country’s been mistreated. The trade deals were so bad. The taxes were so high. The tax cuts are so good; they’ve been so appreciated by so many people. The cut in regulations may be just as important as the tax cuts because businesses are hiring like they’ve never hired before. And, you know, we have a more interesting stat: We have more people working in the United States today than at any time in our history. So many different things are happening.”
Hearing that only reinforced how bizarre, angry, and deranged the media coverage of this president has been.
President Trump landed yet another blow in his ongoing boxing match with the liberal media on Tuesday, opening the day with a tweet that attacked the press for continuing to cover his administration with an utter disregard for the facts.
“The Fake News Media is going CRAZY!” he wrote. “They are totally unhinged and in many ways, after witnessing firsthand the damage they do to so many innocent and decent people, I enjoy watching. In 7 years, when I am no longer in office, their ratings will dry up and they will be gone!”
As true as every bit of that remark happens to be – the media is absolutely digging their own grave with their obsessive hatred of this president – it doesn’t compare to the tweets Trump sent on Sunday. In a series of messages, Trump took the media to task for not only ruining journalism with their false, biased reporting but for revealing government secrets that put lives at risk.
“When the media-driven insane by their Trump Derangement Syndrome – reveals internal deliberations of our government, it truly puts the lives of many, not just journalists, at risk,” he wrote. “Very unpatriotic! Freedom of the press also comes with a responsibility to report the news accurately.
“90% of media coverage of my administration is negative,” he continued, “despite the tremendously positive results we are achieving, it’s no surprise that confidence in the media is at an all-time low! I will not allow our great country to be sold out by anti-Trump haters in the dying newspaper industry. No matter how much they try to distract and cover it up, our country is making great progress under my leadership and I will never stop fighting for the American people!”
CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta had a few meltdowns this week on live television and during a White House press briefing.
This after Trump supporters chanted “CNN sucks” during one of his live shots in Tampa, Florida, a
Acosta has seen his notoriety rise in recent months due to his lack of basic courtesy as a White House correspondent for CNN. Rather than waiting patiently for his turn to politely ask questions of the president or his cabinet, Acosta has become prone to public outbursts and fits of rage as he hurls politically-loaded queries at the administration.
His “questions” are more often framed like statements designed to taunt, embarrass or provoke a specific response that Acosta can then use to challenge the administration’s position. He simply wants to advance his reputation as a media malcontent and isn’t genuinely concerned about the president’s position on anything.
Despite this erratic and unprofessional behavior, Acosta had the temerity to question the “civility” of a group of South Carolina Trump supporters who interrupted his coverage of the president’s recent rally with boos and jeers. Apparently, Acosta doesn’t enjoy being interrupted by a hostile crowd.
Responding to CNN’s Jim Acosta, who remains bitter over Trump supporters chanting “CNN sucks” and flipping him the bird at Monday’s Trump rally in Florida (CNN has spent years provoking this kind of reaction by smearing Trump supporters as Nazis and racists),
Recently Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded to Acosta’s constant whining about CNN being attacked by Trump supporters.
Sanders said in a tweet: It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the President for his rhetoric when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country. Repeatedly — repeatedly — the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger.
…In fact, as I know — as far as I know, I’m the first Press Secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection. Since Sarah said that now journalists are jumping on bored saying they want secret service protection too. Well they are all from super-wealthy companies that can afford them bodyguards so why not?
Sarah’s father Mike Huckabee tweeted, “I know I’m as objective about @PressSec as @NYTimes new hateful, racist hire Sarah Jeong is about white people, but I still think @PressSec is the WINDSHIELD and little Jim Acosta is the BUG.”
Aside from calling Acosta a “bug” that presumably ended up smashed on Sanders’ “windshield,” Huckabee also referenced the newly hired editorial board member of The New York Times, Sarah Jeong, who has a lengthy social media history of abjectly racist screeds against white people.
Huckabee tweeted, “Breaking wind from CNN! Jim Acosta suffers severe nose bleed from the elevation of his high horse. Taken to safe space and provided with Play Dough, a popsicle, pictures of a pony to color and a puppy.”
Huckabee’s reference to Sarah Jeong was to the new Editorial Board writer for the failing New York Times who was exposed as tweeting extremely racist comments against cops and white people. Such comments as :“Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.
Dumba** f***ing white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” Jeong wrote in November 2014. “white people are genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins,” she wrote a month later.
These comments are only part and partial of hundreds of comments dating back to 2014. And to think Roseanne got fired for far, far less.
The Times defended hiring Jeong saying:“We hired Sarah Jeong because of the exceptional work she has done … her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her a subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers,” The Times said in a statement. “She regrets it, and The Times does not condone it.”
She responded to her criticism by saying:
“I engaged in what I thought of at the time as counter-trolling. While it was intended as satire, I deeply regret that I mimicked the language of my harassers. These comments were not aimed at a general audience, because general audiences do not engage in harassment campaigns. I can understand how hurtful these posts are out of context, and would not do it again,” Jeong wrote.
She only said that to keep her job and because she got caught. The Times should never have hired such a person who has been tweeting thousands of these comments over the last four years. The fact that the Times stood up for her says volumes about them. No wonder the Times is failing and referred to as the New York Slimes.
Now, a so-called conservative columnist for the Washington Post on MSNBC Jennifer Rubin, said Sarah Huckabee Sanders “should be shunned” for her work as Trump’s press secretary.
Sanders has always toed the line for Trump. Her unending support of Trump has now upset journalists so much they want her shut out of the ability to earn a living post-Trump presidency. The job of the press secretary is to answer questions from the press and support the president which Sarah has done completely without fail
Rubin is also buying into the new narrative that Trump is putting the life of journalists at risk now because Trump is calling out the media for fake news, journalists are upset. The best way to fix the problem is to report the truth without bias.
Rubin has been against Trump from virtually the beginning and is a perfect example of how a journalist lets his or her personal feelings get in the way of the actual news. I don’t think she’s a real conservative, but just pretending to get conservatives to hate Trump. In some of her articles, she has called Trump an “arrogant fool” and a “flat-out racist.” She’s no conservative that’s for sure. More like a wolf in sheep’s clothing who ate the sheep.
While she is entitled to her opinion about Trump, her accusations are completely unfounded. Now, suddenly, he is a racist simply because it suits the liberal narrative.
The unhinged disease, known as Trump Derangement Syndrome, is an airborne phenomenon spread by casual contact with the liberal mainstream anti-Trump media continues on in the Destroy Trump Media.
