Well we’re off and running post the mid terms.
It didn’t take long did it?
The press conference that the President held was one for the ages.
Did you ever see a President attack people in his own party that lost?
He did so because they didn’t bring him into their districts. Wow.
Then he claimed victory in the election. Wait, you lost the house.
Then the press tried to attack and claim he lost the mid terms.
No, it was a draw. Losing the house and winning in the senate is a draw.
When the reporter (from NBC) backed Acosta, the President told him that “he was no fan of him either”.
Then boom, the confrontation with Jim Acosta of CNN. That was beyond anything we have seen.
What’s clear to us is that we have a President whose ego is too large for anything to be his fault and a press so antagonistic that no matter how much success he has they will never give him credit. We don’t see an end to this.
The press has always been anti Republican conservative leaders. What is making this situation worse is the President’s inability to take any negative coverage at all. Add that he has some outstanding accomplishments, yet the coverage on the MSM is still 92% negative, and you have the current situation.
Ronald Reagan’s coverage was forever negative. He was “dense, dumb, uninformed and unable to function without his index cards”. In a similar press conference to yesterday’s setting, when asked if he had any blame for losses of seats he answered differently than the President. Where Trump attacked those who were defeated, Reagan answered this way. “Yes I do, I was once a Democrat”.
See the difference?
That said, no reporter has the right to be as disrespectful to the office as Acosta has been; and no reporter has the right to ask unlimited questions and refuse to surrender the microphone.
Then along comes the Sessions firing. No time wasted there. The letter was pre-written, and one day after the election it was executed.
Now a President has a right to appoint an Attorney General he wants. But the Democrats immediately called it a conspiracy to silence the special prosector. It was loud and supported by the MSM.
We thought this was a good time to remind you that when he had his hearing to become AG, the Democrats were unified against Sessions. Remember when they called him racist and he had to defend his character? Many were the same who voted against him to be a judge you may recall. Now they love him? Were they wrong then? Someone ask them.
The other thing to remember is this. Sessions was the first U.S. Senator to support Donald Trump. He was out there alone. For his early support he certainly didn’t get any love or respect from the President. You would think for that support he would get a dignified handling despite their differences. Not so.
Also, the day after, here’s some Democrat plans on investigations:
Democratic lawmakers said they planned to seek President Trump’s tax returns “immediately,” with an eye out for conflicts of interest and ties to foreign governments.
We don’t see why anyone should release their returns if they don’t want. Let the voters factor that into their ballot choice.
INCOMING HOUSE JUDICIARY CHAIRMAN Jerry Nadler of New York, incoming Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland, incoming Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff of California and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) have sent a raft of letters to the administration, asking for them to preserve all materials “relevant to the work of the Office of the Special Counsel or the departure of the Attorney General.”
Nadler, you may recall, said he intends to bring up impeach Kavanaugh hearings.
In just a single month this fall, Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, called for his panel to subpoena the Trump administration over seven different investigations, including immigration and Obamacare.
Come January, when Democrats assume control of the House, Mr. Cummings will be committee chairman and can fire off those subpoenas himself, without worrying about Republican opposition.
You get the idea what’s coming.
