I am not sure if “unhinged” accurately describes the response from most of the media since Trump’s victory. It started on election night with Rachael Maddow at MSNBC who made no attempt to mask her hatred of Trump when it was becoming apparent of who the next POTUS was going to be. She nearly melted down on the show and set the example for the rest of the left leaning media – do a full court press on the next leader of the free world.
Harass, criticize at all cost, disrupt at every possible moment, and set a new standard for hypocrisy right out of the chute…
So let’s start with the snarkiness in the media since November 8:
General Attitude of the Trump Victory and his Supporters
Too many examples here to list, but turn on any channel other than Fox and you hear constant smears of the President- Elect. They are still in Campaign for Hillary Mode, in full denial of reality, and signaling from the start that they will not give Trump any fair coverage in any manner. Tell me how this helps the nation in any manner? The job of the press is to report the news, not be the news. If a scintilla of effort had been done to hack at Barry O out of the chute like what Trump is already seeing, the left would have quashed the critical source with cries of racism, calls of unpatriotic action, and any number of smear tactics that would have been designed to destroy any opposition. Had Hillary won, the same set of protective walls would have been erected for her. With one change: sexism would have replaced racism.
Then there is the examination of the supporters. For people who are as educated as they are, the liberal press show how stupid they really can be at times. In the internalization of how HRC lost, they just don’t see how people can support Trump. In their mind, HRC hit the nail on the head in the “deplorable” list. What was that list again? Oh, yeah, I remember now. Let’s list them in order from HRC’s mouth:
I don’t know why she didn’t just add “white trash” to the list? I mean, isn’t that what the elite think “fly over country” is composed of anyway?
Now here is the best part – I am hearing stories in this same press pool now that there needs to be a more “open” dialogue with the nation to address needs. That is code for “We did not see this coming, you deplorable Trump supporters thwarted our polling, and we would appreciate it if you would scratch your demands on a rock so we can have them analyzed for mutant contagion so we can look superior once again. Love & Kisses – the Liberal Media“.
Can you say detached and lost in translation?
Good! I knew you could!
May We Tag Along Mr. Trump?
This is going to be fun to watch. Trump is about as public a man in the private sector as they come, being covered by press constantly before his run for POTUS. This past week, Trump ditched his press pool to have dinner with his family. My guess is he knows this may be one of the last times he can have a dinner with the wife and kids in public without the press fawning over every bite. Apparently, the press pool did not take this well and issued a letter the next day requesting a pool bet set up immediately to cover him from now to the end of his presidency.
Hmm. Seem to remember a Hawaiian vacation in 2008 for then President-Elect Barry O and his ditching the press pool to take the girls to a water park. Don’t recall any outrage then…….
O Hypocrisy, why doth thou keep rearing thy ugly head?
Will You Hurry Up and Appoint People?!?!?
Amid bowl movements aplenty, the media is having a fit that Trump does not roll out the new Cabinet appointees this week. Forget about the fact that is recent history going back to Reagan that most appointments don’t come until 6 weeks after the election. Bush 41 was the exception, but he was the former VP and had a leg up in the process. Even BHO did not have people appointed at this point. You know the hypocrisy is high when David Axelrod tweets about this fact with BHO and does not recall getting harassed for it then.
So why the rush? Its not that the press really care about who Trump appoints. They need fresh, new targets to shred and smear. Their world has been turned upside down. The plan was to fawn over HRC, crush any dissent, and just ooh and awe over her every move. More importantly, the press was going to be HRC’s public defender over her “alleged” criminal activities when her prosecution began. And prosecuted she would have been, for the email scandal was just the tip of iceberg. The Clinton Foundation has all of the elements of a non-profit being used to enrich the pockets of its members – Bill & Hillary. That is a violation of the section of the Tax Code that non-profits are organized under and why the FBI is still poking around. The real bombshell is going to be when the Foundation investigation turns up evidence of violations of federal election laws regarding the misuse of “donations” and re-routing funds to the Clinton Campaign.
Remember that you read it hear first.
Those Precious Cupcakes and Anarchists
Remember when Trump threw out the chance he might not accept election night results? The howls across the media of foul play rattled television sets. Can you imagine if HRC won and Trump supporters went into the streets to protest? The liberal media would have CRUSHED them with calls of calm, you must accept the rule of legal elections, and can’t we just get along. When that wore thin, then name calling would have kicked in: Brown shirts, Nazis, Fascists (that one is still being used…), etc.
Where in blazes are these voices of reason now? You have riots, not protests, going on in certain areas of the country. A protest is peaceful and no one will bother that process. Riots are when people and property are attacked as is going on now, yet I hear no one out there calling for calm, etc. Instead, what I hear from the liberal press is acceptance.
“Oh, those crazy kids are just exercising their First Amendment rights voicing their displeasure with Trump. Paid protesters – there is no evidence of that. Those are not anarchists tearing up cities where protests are occurring. Those are just frustrated kids. That’s not assault occurring on campuses by the cupcakes who cannot handle reality against anyone who shows or speaks support for Trump.”
