Kurt Schlichter’s latest: President Trump Has Been Far Too Nice To The Mainstream Media
It wasn’t a press conference – it was a kinky dungeon session where masochistic journalists eagerly sought out the delicious pain Master T was dealing. Hack after hack stepped up, tried to play “gotcha.” and ended up whimpering in the fetal position. The best part was CNN’s Jim Acosta, fresh from whining about how conservative outlets now get to ask questions too, basically handing Trump the cat-o-nine tails. Dude, next time keep from talking yourself into more public humiliation by biting down on the ball gag.
The media’s safe word is “Objectivity,” but none of them uttered it.
The wonderful thing about Trump – and the thing that sets the Fredocons and wusspublicans fussing – is that he gives exactly zero damns about the media’s inflated and ridiculous self-image. He doesn’t pay lip service to their lie that they are anything but what Instapundit calls “Democratic Party operatives with bylines.” Trump called them the “the enemy of the American People,” to which normals responded with “Yeah, sounds about right.”
Trump sees them as the enemy, which they are, and he calls them what they are, just like he calls radical Islamic terrorists “radical Islamic terrorists” instead of generic “extremists” who shout “Allah Akbar!” as they commit acts of “workplace violence” whose motives remain elusive and unknowable. It would be ironic that the media hates it when a politician tells the truth, except no one still believes the media is in the truth business.
The press conference provided a great excuse for one of the media’s periodic freakouts about pretend oppression. After all, the best press is Threatened by Fascism Press, where the pampered members of the Fourth Estate get to play the heroic resistance to huge, shadowy forces intent on stilling their voices and suppressing truth and justice. Except the media might come off as a bit more sincere about freedom of speech if it spared even a fraction of its ostentatious current concern for itself for the conservatives being silenced and beaten at Berkeley while the police stood back, under orders to let it happen. Oh, and it would be more convincing if the media did not eagerly support overturning a Supreme Court ruling that said that the government could not stop people from showing a movie critical of Hillary Clinton. I’m not saying my novel People’s Republic’s depiction of a lapdog press serving the liberal fascist elite in post-secession blue America represents the media’s desired end-state, but all the evidence supports that the media’s desired end-state is totally to serve as the lapdog of a liberal fascist elite in a post-secession blue America.
Only a fevered hive mind, poisoned by unearned self-regard and a delusional sense of its own moral superiority, could seriously equate a politician pointing out the obvious fact that today’s reporters are mostly lying, incompetent jerks with Hitlerian press censorship. Tell you what – I’ll believe you when the National Guard shows up to shut down CNN by padlocking the makeup room.
Sounds like 1/2 of people thought Trump's news conference was brilliant & other half (esp. the media) thought it was obviously awful! LOL

Honest Q for conservatives who aren't just working with or around Trump, but rationalizing him: In your heart, don't you know you're wrong?

Actually Bill, some of us think there's more to the man than his outlandish comments, e.g. his cabinet, his regulatory moves, leg. agenda. https://t.co/6SMtq7dbSc

Chris Wallace tells @Reince Obama whined about media but never accused journalists of being enemies of state. Only Trump crossed that line

No, he just tried to indict them in espionage cases. https://t.co/4MiZUWltv9

Scott Adams: Imaginary News
There are two clues that the Huffington Post is hallucinating and I’m not. The first clue is that they have a trigger and I don’t. Reality violated their egos, whereas I was predicting a Trump win all along. My world has been consistent with my ego. No trigger. All I have is a warm feeling of rightness.
The second clue is that the Huffington Post is seeing something that half the country doesn’t see. As a general rule, the person who sees the elephant in the room is the one hallucinating, not the one who can’t see the elephant. The Huffington Post is literally seeing something that is invisible to me and other observers. We see a President Trump talking the way he normally talks. They see a 77-minute meltdown.
