Donald Trump tweets that the media is ‘the enemy of the American people’

There’s been some talk among journalists, regular folks and tech people about whether Twitter should ban Donald Trump. Like, that’s the conversation at this point – we’ve all resigned ourselves to the fact that the current president of the United States tweets like a 13-year-old Mean Girl on his unsecure Android phone from the White House. We’ve all thrown up our hands on that one. So now people wonder if Twitter should shut him down. I don’t think they will, first of all. Second of all, I don’t think they should – Trump is the worst person in the world and he’s going to kill us all, but I’d rather deal with his tweets out in the open, rather than having sh-t be all covert. That being said, I’m literally breaking out in stress rashes whenever I look at Trump’s tweets, and sure, I wish he wasn’t such a fascist a–hole. Speaking of, these are just some of his tweets from Friday and Saturday:

So, yeah. Trump isn’t just at war with the intelligence community, Australia, the Democratic Congressional minority, sanity, immigrants, women, Muslims, refugees, John McCain and facts. He’s also going to war with the media. He’s literally saying that the free press is an enemy of the American people. That we would all be better off if the press was just “nice” to him, I guess. We would all be better off if he alone controlled the media. If there were no checks and balances. If he was our baby-fisted authoritarian despot. Obviously, #NotTheEnemy trended on Twitter throughout Friday and Saturday, and I would suggest looking through those posts.

Oh, and Easy D completely made up a terror attack in Sweden. Because FAKE NEWS.

What else? Trump made an unhinged speech at a Boeing plant in South Carolina on Friday. He decided to make a “joke” about Air Force One. “What can look so beautiful at 30? An airplane.” Because once a woman is 30, you might as well trade her in for two 15-year-olds, I suppose. That’s the way it is in Emperor Baby Fists’ Rusmerica.

    He’s “campaigning” again, he just loves it…. and he loves being worshipped by his supporters. So embarrassing.

    • Esmom says:

      Campaigning, or his version of it, seems to be the only thing he likes to do. Probably because he doesn’t have to think. Whatever he says, no matter how hateful, nonsensical, untruthful, just sticks. It’s horrifying.

      • Justjj says:

        Will he ever finish campaigning? Check out this creepy survey from his official website: https://action.trump2016.com/trump-mms-survey/

        I wish George Orwell were still around to see this.

      • cindy says:

        He really does feed off the crowds, it’s disturbing. His psyche is so scary and I worry that if by some chance he doesn’t get us all blown up, the bar for president is now perminantly lowered.

      • Cannibell says:

        OMG, @Justjj – that survey is horrifying. And requiring a name and e-mail address at the bottom? Wonder what shows up at your doorstep if you answer incorrectly and put in a real name & email address? (Or maybe it gets funneled to wikileaks so they can find your IPO address and get you that way….)

      • holly hobby says:

        That survey was dumb and I filled it all out with dumb answers. That’s because those are the only responses those idiots understand.

    • Ramona says:

      He needs his narcissist supply. The last four weeks have been filled with criticism and his psyche cannot handle it, it demands instant gratification. I’m terrified that nobody is addressing the fact that having a president that is so easy to read and therefore manipulate makes us so vulnerable. You can bet that every major power has added a Narcissist Personality Disorder consultant to advise their head of state on how to handle Trump. Forget the inevitable war he will start, the US now goes into every trade negotiation handicapped by this. Honestly if Teresa May hasnt figured out how to make up for Brexit through a US trade deal in which her country gets the better end, she is straight up stupid.

      • dodgy says:

        May isn’t as bright or as fashionable as she wants to be, tbh. Right now, they are trying to bribe Peugeot not to close down the Vauxhall plants in Britain when the easiest way would be to… cancel Brexit?

        When Tony Blair is the only political voice that’s making sense, y’all know things are twisted.

    • Megan says:

      Easy D has the sads because us lib’ruls and the media are being so mean to him by refusing to acknowledge his pretend accomplishments. Not fair!

      Words I never thought I’d write … if there is a goddess in heaven please pray to her that Pence and his lawyers are currently reviewing how to mobilize under the 25th Amendment.

    • dodgy says:

      How can he start campaigning already when his stint is less than 100 days old?

      • mary mary says:

        Melania READ the “Lord’s Prayer” (at a campaign rally) yes she did not recite it, but when she got to the line “deliver us from evil”, I so wanted her to remember and recite that prayer line “deliver us from evil”, while walking through the White House :) .

      • Sophia's Sid eye says:

        Dodgy, what I read is that the day he was sworn in he applied to run again in 2020. Some said it was so that he can start taking bribes… err I mean “donations” as early as possible. It’s an unusual thing to do.

    McCain is all talk. All these Republicans will go down in history as traitors…losers..the worst.

      i agree. john mccain might as well shut up. he’s just hounding for publicity now. he has all kinds of criticisms but he voted 3rd party, repeated how HRC would be worse (WRONG) and has voted yes on every single cabinet pick and thing trump as passed that has touched the senate. so are you in or out mccain? pick a side. spoiler alert: it will be the republican side.

      • lightpurple says:

        Same with whiny, hand-wringing Lindsay Graham.

      • SusanneToo says:

        Graham on FTN right now wah-wahing about the press.😫😫😫

      • Andrea says:

        I beg to differ–I commend McCain and Graham for standing up and demanding an investigation of him when all other Republicans sit on their laurels.

      • dodgy says:

        McCain introduced Sarah Palin to the national consciousness, he should have been ignored for that fact alone. She was the forerunner to Donald Trump in a lot of ways, world salad and all.

      • Annetommy says:

        At the moment McCain is, as we say in parts of the UK, all mouth and no trousers. It’s good that he’s speaking out but he needs to follow it up with actions.

      • jwoolman says:

        McCain is better than nothing. I think we should treasure every Republican opposing any part of Trump’s agenda, no matter what their motivation. Keep your eyes on the prize: convincing Trump to resign and retire to his golden palaces. And no, Pence isn’t worse than Trump. For starters, I’m sure Pence will bounce Bannon out on his ear. And Pence is much less likely to tweet us into WWIII.

        Just remember we can deal with horrible policy, but we have to get the disturbed toddler out of the White House first.

    • Kiki says:

      This why I have had it up to here with these REPUBLICANS. John McCain should just shut up and Lindsay Graham should just go away. Seriously, America. You have fleas. I wanted to live in the United States but as a legal immigrant, I will pass and go straight to Canada, and maybe more legal immigrant want to live in the State but I suggest you should not. Let Donald Trump and his idiot supporters suffer without immigrants.

    • Insomniac says:

      Yep. John McCain is Lucy with the football, and anyone who keeps buying into the idea that *this time* he might vote country over party is Charlie Brown.

    • QQ says:

      YO Lina THAT is what I cannot with We Must never forget that these syncopathic craven coward for the sake of their career/self Interest ACTUAL PEOPLE THAT KNOW GOVERNANCE AND SUCH are letting this flaming *sshole cook til its politically expedient to dump him, Priebus, Pence, Ryan, Mcconnel’s Droopy dog ass face..all of these people need to be investigted, hassled, gotten out the paint, there is no way they dont know whats going on and yet they are not putting their country first cause advancing their sh!tty policies and Undoing Obama’s Legacy is more pressing, They are the biggest disgrace to me, cause That old Trashy groper with a Bad Wig is probably gonna end up rightly in jail or exiled but they KNOW what this is

      • Esmom says:

        Agreed. They know. They are a f^cking disgrace and we definitely must never forget.

      • Shambles says:

        YES. I am so damn sick of seeing these d!ckweeds treated with kid gloves as if they’re just precious patriotic citizens who haven’t known what the f*ck is up since day one

      • Sadezilla says:

        Starred for its utter truth! :)

        ETA: and for “trashy groper with the bad wig.” I’m co-opting that!

      • LinaLamont says:

        @QQ
        To see Yertle McConnell’s smug smirk as he talks about his plans for this country and how pleased he is that he’s destroying it…yeah, that POS… there are no words. And, I have no doubt that he’s sticking it to Obama. These Republicans are so petty with their personal vendettas.

        History will come down on the right side of Obama (good) and the Republicans (bad) but, we’re all paying a price, in the meantime.

  3. sarri says:

    What’s wrong with him and Kellyanne that they make up terrorist attacks?!

  4. Lolo86lf says:

    Any news, even the ones that have been fact-checked, that he does not like are fake to him. He is such a fascist.

  5. Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

    The way he talks about the media is just how all other dictators do, plus it concerns me what he will do to silence them. The US constitution is under threat – he seems to think that just cause he’s President that he can just change it whenever he wants, esp if he has support from some of the people.

    Journalists get a raw deal – many good ones are lubbed together with the tabloid rags that do make things up *cough*Daily Fail*cough*. The world and democarcy needs a free press.

    So Donald its not the press who is the enemy of the state – its YOU and your cohorts!

    • Julia says:

      Totally. The media is not one person or one news source. His careless, reckless, false remarks are what most dictators have said. He is a narcissist and a pathological liar therefore the media, which reports facts and editorial, is too great a threat to his fragile ego so all he can do is insult them.

    • Tiny Martian says:

      My sentiments exactly. The #1 enemy of the American people is the current POTUS. He is the biggest threat to what most Americans feel is the American way of life : an undivided country with truth, liberty, and justice for all.

  6. Paris says:

    Not again! Please stop… Melania or Ivanka! … just delete his twitter account and destroy his Iphone. Please!

  7. Patricia says:

    Please please please will someone take him down from his position? Come on intelligence community, double time it!!
    I can’t wait for the day he’s escorted out of the White House in handcuffs. I’ll finally sleep well again at night. This is all so worrying and scary. How can he say these things??!

    If the intelligence community can’t save us maybe his own arteries will because the Orange Narcissist is looking awful. He looks like he’s gained a bunch of weight, bloated as hell, probably living off of junk food and not exercising for even ten minutes from day to day.

    • Wilma says:

      I actually had a very elaborate dream in which Trump tried to nuke Beijing and his secret service men took him out.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        @Wilma: crossing fingers that you are psychic!

      • LinaLamont says:

        I laughed out loud when I read this. I, immediately, thought of Neidermeyer in “Animal House”. Maybe, if you dream it 3 times, you can Beetlejuice it so.

  8. ida says:

    please, never ever consider stop being outraged and protest, protest, protest. this man will be IMPEACHED! it just takes time but it does not take long! until then STAY STRONG!

    • Megan says:

      The Republicans will not impeach him, and thanks to gerrymandering, the Democrats will not take back Congress in 2018. Public pressure has to be so great that Trump quits. Please do everything you can to resist!

      • LinaLamont says:

        Unfortunately, the Senate seats up for midterm election are mostly Democrats. It doesn’t look so good.

      • Megan says:

        @Lina I worked with Chris Van Hollen when he chaired the House committee and I feel much better about the mid-terms now that he is chairing the Senate committee. He knows how to win elections.

      • Christin says:

        Did anyone else catch the footage of her reciting a prayer and speaking to their kind of crowd yesterday?

      • Esmom says:

        Yes. She read the prayer from a teleprompter while a staged crowd with “Blacks for Trump” signs stood behind her. So bizarre. On Twitter someone posted a screen cap of an email promoting the event, along with all the free stuff people would get if they came. Plus all the Trump merch that would be available for purchase.

      • Megan says:

        Obviously those signs are fake because no African American I know would refer to black people are “blacks.” That is what ignorant people say because they have been counseled that “colored” is no longer acceptable.

      • lightpurple says:

        And then Cheetolini saying he didn’t know she was going to recite the prayer. Despite it being prepped for the teleprompter. Sure.

      • swak says:

        Thought I read she recited the Lord’s Prayer. Why on earth would she need to have that on a teleprompter. That is a main prayer in most Christian religion. Shouldn’t she know that prayer?

      • Esmom says:

        swak, I know. Someone tweeted “I’m an atheist and even I know the Lord’s Prayer.” Lol.

        … and lead us not into Totalitarianism, and deliver us from Donald, for Thine is the Kremlin, and the Power, and the Glory. Amen.

      • jwoolman says:

        Megan – it’s also been pointed out that the “Blacks for Trump” signs were made to look hand-printed but they were exactly identical….. And it looked as though the dark people vanished from behind Trump after the first picture was taken and the pale people moved down to fill the seats behind Trump.

        I remember once in the campaign they were so short of “blacks” that a very pale woman of quite different ethnicity was holding one of the signs with something similar on it. She looked a tad baffled but was enjoying it all.

    • krtmom says:

      and.he.doesn’t.care!!!

      • mia girl says:

        He should care. Because I am an extremely proud, hard working American who is incredibly concerned about my country. He is playing games and all I want is a President who, even if I don’t agree with their policies, is at least serious about the honor afforded him and shows basic respect for his office as well as the institutions of my government and country.

        He should care because he’s meant to preside over all Americans, and yet seeks to manipulate, lie, divide, marginalize and discredit any opinions that don’t square with his deluded sense of self and his echo chamber.

        He should care because there are more MEs being pushed everyday to organize and resist. There are more MEs than those who might show up to his rallies.

        He should care. And if as you say, he doesn’t care right now, he will have no choice to because the MEs will have our voices heard and will drive change.

      • Tate says:

        Well said @mia. I agree wholeheartedly.

      • LinaLamont says:

        Oh, but he cares…bigly. Thus, the new round of campaign rallies and mentioning his win with anyone and everyone he encounters…much to their befuddlement, bemusement and disinterest.

        Who the hell campaigns a month after having taken office?

        SAD

His approval ratings is 38%, so out popped the present wife dressing glamorous but looking very sad. Now she has to pay back for living in that gaudy house. Anyway, I don’t feel sorry for her, she told us, “don’t feel sorry for me” when the tape of the pu$$y grabbing came out.

        Btw, things must be really, bigly bad because they are saying the wife and son will be moving to Washington now. She was to stay in nyc until Barron finishes his school year.

      • lightpurple says:

        And. I. don’t. care. if. he. doesn’t. care.

        But he does care. Very, very much. Bigly care. Believe me. If he didn’t care, he wouldn’t be holding rallies to surround himself with adoring crowds and to show you that he is surrounded by adoring crowds. He wouldn’t be tweeting the insane crap he tweets about millions of illegals voting for Clinton and he wouldn’t be making statement that all of Massachusetts drove to New Hampshire and voted there multiple times. He wouldn’t have censored the NPS for showing actual images of his small inauguration audience.

        But I don’t care. I don’t care what he wants or what he thinks or how he feels about our opposition. He is a horrible man and he is doing horrible things to our nation and there are mechanisms to remove him from office and I will speak up rationally and clearly and constantly until those mechanisms are used and he is thrown out on his fake tan arse right along with his fascist buddies and his grifter daughter.

    Just. Go. Away. Donald.

  11. greenmonster says:

    He wants to discredit media (FAKE news, not covering terrorist attacks) and then he MAKES UP terrorist attacks – his supporters swallow hook, line and sinker. That’s his goal. Once his supporters are blinded by his “truth” he can do whatever he wants. This is crazy and so scary.

  12. Indira says:

    He will go down as the worst president ever.

    • LinaLamont says:

      The whole bunch (all the Republicans) is the worst. They HATE America. They hate the constitution. They hate every amendment, except the 2nd, which they contort into something it’s not. They’re the most unpatriotic bunch we’ve ever had. Every single one of the current Republican senators should be tried for treason for enabling and supporting the Traitor-in-Chief.

        I for one am not going to roll over and wait for Trump to get us blown to hell. But you do you.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        krtmom, just stop it. He whines more than the rest of the world combined. “Wah wah fake media, wah wah everybody loves me, wah wah Hillary lost, wah wah you all suck! My crowd was the bigliest ever! WAH!” Little orange snowflake needs to STFU and get his lazy a** to work.

      • Esmom says:

        The fact that you seem to have no concern that our country’s president would try to tear down the press, one of our main pillars of democracy, is frightening to me. It’s why we are in this horrific mess we are in. This isn’t “whining.” This is fear that the foundation our country has been built on is being torn down by a buffoon who has no idea what havoc is wreaking. It might be a game to him or to you but this is serious, serious business.

      • Beth says:

        @Krtmom we aren’t whiners, just scared Americans. There is no way Trump will last 4 years! He’s a brat who has made our country and himself the laughingstock of the world! With him throwing childish tantrums while tweeting all day he’s the whiner!

      • lightpurple says:

        @krtmom, and look at how much damage he has done in that short time. I am “over it” if by “it,”, you mean the election. I am also “over” his supporters beginning every response to legitimate concerns with a demand that people “get over it,” as if the only issue of concern is the election results and I will not stand for it. Yes, he occupies the Office of the President. See, I said it. Now, let us address the issues, shall we? Or are you unprepared to do so? Yes, it will be an eternity while he is in office because his policies will destroy this nation. Now, get over yourself and GOP talking points, own the mess he is creating and deal with the legitimate, rational, non-whining criticism that he and his supporters deserve.

      • isabelle says:

        Which means if you have people up for reelection in 2018, make sure you vote in the midterms! They win because liberals and youth vote don’t show up for midterms. Vote in 2018! and vote out their apathetic bootlicking butts.

    • lightpurple says:

      For those unsure as to what the Legal Service Corp is, and I’m sure Trump doesn’t – Gingrich has been trying to eliminate it for 20 years – LSC receives federal funds to establish LSC agencies in each state. They are basically law firms that offer services completely free, or on a sliding scale, to low-income people to represent them in civil cases against the federal government and the individual states for appeals and lawsuits against Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, TANF, and public housing. Some also have family law units that assist low-income individuals in obtaining restraining orders and divorces – those tend to be where the sliding scale cases are. When an individual applies for SSI or Medicaid and receives an eligibility denial, the denial notice must include appeal rights AND the number and address of the local Legal Services or Legal Aid office. The reversal rate for SSI appeals when represented by counsel is somewhere in the vicinity of 70%. Or if the person is on Medicaid and needs treatment that the Medicaid program denies; the denial notice also includes that referral information.

      They can’t represent in cases involving abortion and they cannot lobby.

        My mom has been doing this work for 40 years and also helps with landlord/tenant disputes and in holding cities accountable for having enough low income housing (per zoning regulations). And her office was busy for years helping people through the mortgage crisis, taking on predatory lenders. They are overworked, underpaid, passionate about their work, and effective.

      • lightpurple says:

        Your mom and those attorneys and paralegals like her are my professional heroes. I did several internships with different legal services organizations while in law school and the work they do is amazing and, as you say, the staff are overworked, underpaid, passionate, and effective.

  16. Indiana Joanna says:

    He is threatened by information that hasn’t yet been reported. His ties to Russia and Putin are well established, but the details haven’t been flushed out. His sons are setting up millions of branding deals in other countries thereby using the WH as a platform to shill. His WH is a broiling disaster. He didn’t get the adulation he expected from visiting world leaders these past few days. His WH staff is a mess and he has compromised intelligence. He is a lunatic and wants to intimidate everyone who doesn’t endorse his madness.

    He is truly evil and I feel terrified.

    • Christin says:

      There are so many topics worthy of more reporting. The yapping about the ‘fake news’ suggests that is what he wants to avoid. He’s tossing out more daily distractions with tweets, a ridiculous press conference and a rally among his small but loud base.

    “The press is the enemy of the people,” Trump says. Translating this latest BS, it likely means “the Donald” is the enemy of the people and he knows it. Some say we don’t see things as they are; we see things as WE are. Most see a free press as a big part of achieving democracy. So-called president Trump sees that facts are his enemy and truth is breathing down his neck. At this latest “speech” (I could only stand a few seconds) he wore no tie and seemed relaxed but I can only imagine he will hang himself eventually with his own cacophony of lies and words.

  19. Nicole says:

    Time for everyone to go including the GOP. Those assholes are spitting on the constitution as we speak. Did you see that trump finally got his trademark from China? So he used the POTUS office to broker a business deal w/them. We should be starting impeachment proceedings already. Trump is going to cost us more in a few months than Obama in an entire year. The GOP is no longer holding town halls with constituents.

    America is legit a dumpster fire right now. If I wasn’t so numb I would be crying over the real possiblity of a civil or world war.

    • robyn says:

      Very strange about that signage being allowed in China after all this time and Trump’s hostility, at least in words, towards China. So much going on behind the scenes we don’t know about.

      • Nicole says:

        Not strange. China knew trump wanted the trademark (it’s been something he’s been after for 10′years) and they used political maneuvering to get what they want. Quid pro quo

      • robyn says:

        Nicole, Do you have an thoughts on what Trump is giving China quid pro quo to get that signage up.

      • Nicole says:

        Acknowledging the One China policy. Remember he broke it when he called Taiwan after the election and angered them? Im thinking it has to do with that

      • robyn says:

        Oh, of course, and how typically self-serving of Trump. I suppose Taiwan thought Trump cared about their plight for a second. The sad thing is that Trump’s little game worked for him in this instance and the horrid name and everything it stands for is up there for all to see.

    So tired of his claims that he inherited a mess. Obama’s the one that inherited the mess, and got a great deal of it turned around in spite of the Congressional obstruction Also tired of the US having to maintain three White Houses and pay for him and Melania to travel to Florida separately every damn weekend. Tired of any news that doesn’t praise him being fake. Basically just very tired of him and wish he’d go away.

    anyway, before Trump elected, I never knew about election system in US. I thought it just the same with my country. But seriously I surprised that its so different. we got holiday on election day (any election : pres, parlemen, gov whatever), and the winner is the most voted..

    • LinaLamont says:

      @zappy
      “…and the winner is the most voted..”
      Well, now, that’s just silly…the person with the most votes wins? What a concept.
      In our country (U.S.) the least amount of people have the most clout…and, with gerrymandering, even more so. A good system…no?

      • zappy says:

        he he he is it too simple? maybe my country just doesnt like complicated things. we just choose the easiest way to choose our president etc.. we just dumb like that

    • Beth says:

      The one with the most votes should be the winner! Trump can’t let go of the fact that he actually lost by 3 million. Everything is a mess because the actual winner isn’t president

    • AnneC says:

      We vote on Tuesday because of some outdated beliefs based on farmers traveling to voting places in the 1700′s. Electoral college was created so that southern states ( with lower populations) could count their slaves as 4/5 of a person and then they would have equal population as northern states. It’s all a hideous embarrassing joke and republicans will never abolish until it starts screwing them over. At the very least, we should have a federal holiday on voting day (like they do in @Zappy country), but that would allow too many working people of color the day off. Ugh.

  26. Esmom says:

    I had a big, heated discussion with a friend last night about trying to understand the mindset of a typical Trump supporter. She said the only way we can move forward is to figure what has gone so wrong with our country that a guy like Trump was actually seen as a viable choice for POTUS. I don’t disagree that we need to look hard for answers. But I’m not sure I can ever understand or feel any kind of compassion for anyone who would support him, during the election or now. Especially now.

    • Birdix says:

      I have an acquaintance who is a Trump supporter– he acknowledges Trump is problematic, but is holding out for the “prize” of a conservative judge or two, dismantling Obamacare, business tax cuts for business, and “control” of illegal immigration. He also tosses “national security” as well as a “return to personal responsibility” out there.
      I don’t know how helpful it is to know that people are holding their nose so they can advance their chosen political agenda, but there it is.
      Still seems like mass delusion/racism/party before country to me, but perhaps tied up in a less insane bow.

      • Esmom says:

        I think it really comes down to putting party before country. And like Floyd below said, some people just really wanted to “win,” at all costs.

        I had another discussion earlier yesterday with a co-worker who told me she knows full well that Trump is unhinged and a disgrace but that she’s a “single issue voter” who wants to see Roe v Wade repealed. And then said “Because you know Hillary supports abortion for all 9 months of a pregnancy.” I told her that wasn’t true, and she told me that I must listen to too much “liberal media” because it’s all lies, while “conservative media” is generally “truth but with their own spin.” Sigh.

      • lightpurple says:

        “Return to personal responsibility” means ending SSI, Medicaid, Food Stamps, TANF, and public housing. For some of the more clueless on the subject, which includes many actual elected officials, it also means ending SSDI and Unemployment benefits because they are too stupid to learn the rules that the beneficiaries actually paid into and EARNED these benefits.

    • Kitten says:

      So f*cking tired of the “try to understand them” refrain. They don’t want to be understood, they just want you to validate and support their poor choices. They don’t want judgment or scrutiny or understanding or empathy, just blind acceptance.
      You know, like how they treat their “fearless leader”.

      I’m still engaging with Trumpsters on social media and as soon as you come in with facts, their response devolves into silly memes or they just bomb the thread with links from conservative news sources. It’s like they have no idea how to process information and disperse that information using their own words so they just rely on links full of alternative facts that validate their pre-existing beliefs in lieu of an actual conversation. The critical thinking component is just missing for these people.

      • Tate says:

      • Floydy says:

        I feel like his voters have been told that they are losing for so long (and you could argue some have economically in some industries), and now all that’s important is that they’ve won. That’s all I tend to hear now – their entire argument is that they won and the Dems/anyone other than a white Republican are losers. It’s an ego thing and all their “news sources” confirm it.

      • swak says:

        @Kitten, you’re right about giving facts to them. I do that many times and usually don’t get any response back. They don’t want facts, they just want what is best for them. A couple of the ones I debate (and at some point stop because they refuse to see any other point of view other than their’s) have plenty of money and are well educated. I don’t get it.

      • lightpurple says:

        I tell them that I only want information from primary sources, which deflates their arguments that I am trusting “mainstream media.” It usually takes several tries at re-educating them as to what a primary source document is. They then respond with links to right-wing commentators interpreting primary sources. To which I respond again, that I am capable of reading a primary source document myself and interpreting it myself without someone telling me what I should think it says and then ask why they aren’t using that skill, which I’m sure they have, to read the documents and do necessary research themselves. Eventually, they tell me that I am very polite for a liberal and they stop arguing.

      • original kay says:

        Me too Kitten, I am there and got called “a idiot”. It was great.

      • AnneC says:

        It’s, hopefully, the dying gasps of demographic that is getting smaller and smaller. Already 50% of population of children under 18 are minorities and by 2050 whites overall will be less than 50% of population. Country is diverse and multi cultural in the big population centers and that will just increase. Trump voters fell in love with the fact he called Mexicans rapist and wanted to ban muslims and they thought he was an economic populist. Guy is a creep and a big time liar.

      • Marley says:

        Out of interest, Kitten, which news outlets do you get your information from?

    • kadyo says:

      I know what you mean, Esmom. I’m frankly tired of being told I need to understand or feel empathy towards Trump voters. If someone was willing to vote for Trump despite his clear racism and bigoted rhetoric throughout his campaign, then I know all I need to about that person.

      • Tate says:

        Same here, kaydo. This election has been a real eye opener. It put it all out in the open. Caused me to end some relationships because voting for this person was an endorsement of all of the vile things he represents and that is not ok with me.

      Esmom, Kitten, everyone… I just read a book called “Insane Clown President” by Matt Taibbe. He’s a political writer for Rolling Stone and does a lot of guest spots on Bill Maher’s show.

      The book explains the long disconnect between voters, the media, and the political class. I’d recommend it to anyone here looking for some kind of explanation of what happened during the election. I don’t argue with trumpsters, so I read this just for my own sanity, it was helpful to me.

      As for what’s happened since he was sworn in, I wouldn’t argue with anyone still in his corner, they’re in denial.

  27. nemera34 says:

    He is attacking the mainstream media because they are finally calling him out. If they had done their job at the beginning of this election I think the outcome would have been different. They treated him with kid gloves. Gave him way more room because he was not a politician. I remember reading that too. And now he is the leader of our nation. The press has a responsibility to report. But it has to do it factually. We sadly have seen Legit press using tabloids and gossip sites as sources. This fool has to be fought with just the FACTS/TRUTH.. Fact check everything. and that his how you bring him down. He wants to make the press the enemy so he can feed the nation his garbage. His followers aready are eating the garbage. The challenge is not to buy into it and for the press and public to keep the fight going. He wants to be loved and admired. He needs it. The FAKE news he reads is doing that. But he needs the world to believe the lies he reads and tells himself.

    • Birdix says:

      Yes, they did, especially in all the false equivalency between Clinton’s stumbles and his wildly bigger problems. But they also reported on enough madness that he never should have been elected.

      If anyone is worried about Trump’s unprecedented attacks on an institution that is a pillar democracy- a free, diverse and fair media/press- then do your part and get subscriptions to newspapers that report on Trump. That has been attacked by Trump as fake news. I think these newspapers need the financial support more than ever, so that they can not only keep fact checking Trump and his devlil’s minions/calling them out but also to show via cold hard numbers that ordinary people are supporting the media’s ability to expose Trump! Ordinary, sane people are not buying his garbage of “fake news”!

      • Shambles says:

        I saw the guy being interviewed live last night, and it was pitiful to see it in its entirety. The guy kept saying how much he loves orange one.

        @Esmom – I don’t understand that reaction, because the full interview clearly indicated that orange one picked him out to come on stage. The guy had arrived at 4AM to be first in line, so the media had interviewed him and it apparently caught orange one’s attention. The tweeting complainers should blame their leader for choosing “one bad example”.

  34. Hiccup says:

    I’m Swedish but lived in the states for a while and I’m one of the liberals definitely guilty of first of all not taking him seriously when he started campaigning and after that, thinking that he was only saying these horrid things for publicity / catering to an uneducated audience in order to win.

    I think I gave him way too much credit for actually being smart and playing some populistic and awful game, thinking he was at least aware of what he was doing. This “rally” basically sealed it for me finally, Trump is totally nuts and totally unaware of anything except Fox News apparently. Good grief. Still hard to believe for me. He is incredibly… Dumb!

    Putin would eat him for breakfast.

    • Christin says:

      The more time that passes, and the more that he personally says and does on TV convinces me he isn’t as smart and strategic as I might have assumed.

      Not that I ever thought he was overly smart or capable (his easy start in real estate and string of business issues suggests the opposite), but he is just in over his head. I think it is just mindless flailing at this point.

  35. IlsaLund says:

    Several journalism professors have stated he’s setting the media up to advance his plans to discredit them. For example, the recent AP article about mobilizing the National Guard to aid in deportation of illegal immigrants. AP reporters repeatedly reached out the White House for comment before publishing the report and received no response…..total silence. Then, as soon as the AP published the report, they were blasted for publishing fake news, using unverified sources, the whole anti press argument. It appears that the Trump administration is intentionally doing this. Ignoring news sites requests for verification and comment and then pouncing once the report is published. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Trump administration is intentionally leaking information in order to bolster their anti media claims. And the news organizations are so busy competing against each other for the latest scoop and ratings, they keep getting played and made to look chumps, playing right into President 🤡 hands.

    • greenmonster says:

      Pretty much what I’m thinking. Of course he wants to discredit media outlets. It might be through ignoring news sites requests of verification, whining they portray him badly or claiming that they are not reporting about terrorist attacks. But of course Trump is giving the nation all of the information, because he is not afraid to do so. That’s what his supporters believe. They believe they are being lied by mainstream media and that those are covering up awful stuff that is “happening” somewhere in Europe.

      By doing so the Trump administration wants total power. This way they can make up any event or any reason to justify their actions and Trumpets will be eating it. It’s blowing fairy dust in the eyes of his supporters.

    We are finally starting to see the maladaption and distress needed for an personality disorder diagnosis. It is a tide change, and it is the beginning of the end. This will continue to escalate until he breaks the American public, or they break him.

    There is a reason why so many narcissists are running around, and are highly successful; it’s because we often reward specific groups for behaviours on this spectrum. We expect certain demographics to behave this way, and reward many traits on the NPD (and other personality disorders) spectrum as ‘manly’ and worthy of respect, somehow expecting that they will be subclinical, despite constant reinforcement.

    Instead of discouraging these maladaptive traits, we reward them, especially if a modicum of success is already achieved. We reward men who date pliable women, reward them for having a hot/young/submissive wife, reward them for being over confident (refusing to be introspective or take ctiricism), for being powerful (loud and intimidating), for success at all costs (you first, don’t think of the others). All these traits considered ‘alpha’ (don’t even get me started on the scientific inaccuracy of alpha wolves), all maladaptive in an equal society. Not maladaptive at all in a society that values certain groups over others, values other groups solely for what they provide to the main group, and even believes in their innate superiority.

    NPD and antisocial personality disorder occur at higher rates in societies that value personal achievement over the betterment of society, and 45 is the direct result. A president that embodies the worst of toxic masculinity, and shows the world the Dunning Krueger effect at an unmatched level. As the world moves more towards equity, these relics of a toxic age will face more and more upset. Their tendency dies will cause them more and more distress, as his world and view of self fall apart, 45 will fight the world. This is as it should be, because slowly, through the tears and rage of a dying class of tyranny, we will win.

    There’s something in the pipelines DT doesn’t want out… This anti-media spin is to get ahead of it. But it won’t work.

  43. Andrea says:

    How much longer must we endure this? The thing that worries me the post is the longer it does go on, we look so weak and vulnerable as a nation and China and Russia will be eyeing the slot for world power now.

  44. Rapunzel says:

    Oh, and did anyone else hear about the video of him telling his NJ golf club members that they could gawk at his cabinet interviews? Sick, and makes me think that Mar a Lago stuff was intentional.

    It’s not the media, it’s the TRUTH!! And it’s not the enemy of the “American people,” it’s HIS enemy!!

  46. What-was- that? says:

    This week he attacked the BBC in his news conference and then a Hench man did the same in a BBC interview …I did not watch it because this is very scary stuff..
    If the media get intimidated and do not report people will believe what is told,,,This is the dark side of a precipice…
    Please all of you in the USA support your media and protestors even if it is sometimes aggravating or inconvenient..I truly thank you as we all have a very long and tough journey ahead of us!
    🙏🏼

    That top photo, I cannot believe how bloated and unwell he looks, imagine what he will look like in four years, cannot imagine, hopefully he will be long gone before then. He is going to say anything now at this point to make sure his followers stay with him, so I think he is getting desperate at this stage when you saw him last night doing election rallys like that, and they spoke to one of his followers on CNN, who if that is the kind of people he has as his worshippers, we are doomed, he was absulotely of the wall.

    This is an international embarrassment. We have a thirsty showboat running our country.

    It’s not Twitter’s responsibility to cut him off, I don’t think he violates their terms and conditions. That falls on to the White House I believe, whether he’s violating protocol or just embarrassing the administration. But, like you said, I’d rather his madness be on public display rather than hidden with good publicity.

    • What-was- that? says:

      Thank you for linking to this…I don’t know how to!!!..
      But as you see above in my comments when he takes on Arnty Beeb!..it becomes very frightening!🙀

    And Malaria Trump has a voice that’s like nails on a chalkboard. From butchering the proper pronunciation of simple words from the English language to looking like she will piss orange because Cheetolini is hovering around her, her prayer was painful to watch. And how rich of them to cite a Christian prayer! The Trumps and their supporters are among the most non-Christian people out there: they have no kindness, compassion, understanding and acceptance of others, empathy or charity to the poor and the helpless!

    • adastraperaspera says:

      The prayer and the Battle Hymn of the Republic song used in a presidential rally is a blatant assault on the separation of Church and State in the U.S. Look up “christofascism.” Pretty much sums it up.

  51. What?! says:

    This whole blame game that Easy D is playing reminds me of that quote from Raylan in Justified:

    “You ever hear of the saying “you run into an a$$hole in the morning, you ran into an a$$hole; you run into a$$holes all day, you’re the a$$hole.”"

  52. nemo says:

    as an Israeli, I can feel your pain. Netanyahu isn’t as blunt, but his tricks are similar. unfortunately, it worked for him – we’ve been stuck with him (again) since 2009. ugh.

  53. Elizabeth says:

    this POS needs to be impeached this ass clown had no business in the White house! Thanks to the worthless Electro collage for not doing their job!!

  54. Marley says:

    I’m no Trump supporter but the corporate media is the enemy of the people. They lie or lie by omission to perpetuate capitalist propaganda and rig elections by promoting capitalist candidates and marginalizing truly progressive ones, much to the detrament of ordinary people and the planet. So you’ll have to excuse me for not getting all teary over the butthurt corporate media

  55. Anare says:

    In that top photo he looks exactly like an Oompah Loompah. Exact! I know this is extremely juvenile on my part but I have scrolled through all of your comments and you’ve said everything I’m thinking and much more eloquently. #supportfreepress #resist

  56. Deeanna says:

    Looking at the situation realistically, the two most likely means for getting rid of our current President is either resignation or impeachment. Achievement of either of these is going to require the support of Republican members of Congress. And they need to hear from us!

    In addition to contacting my own Congressional representatives via email at least once per week nowadays, I have chosen a Republican congressperson to also contact on a regular basis. Because the Repubs need to hear from us – whether or not they want to attempt to marginalize us by claiming we are paid by unions, etc. (I could use some pin money! Where do I sign up for these payments?)

    I think even the very “worst” Republican in Congress has to be frustrated and embarrassed by this buffoon representing the U.S. And I don’t think things are going to get better, I think they will get worse as Trump becomes more and more frustrated – because he knows nothing of Washington and how it works.

    Please stay active – this is going to be a longer haul than we want it to be, but it is doable.

    Re; McCain and Palin
    Not a defense but an explanation. McCain’s campaign manager convinced him that naming a woman for his vice-presidential running mate would help him. He semi-reluctantly agreed and asked for a vetted list of possible female candidates. McCain had only ever met Sarah Palin once before, at a large gathering. Bottom line: McCain’s people totally failed to properly vet Palin. And she was already named and on her way by the time anyone actually looked a bit deeper at her background. As soon as they started to look at things more closely Palin announced that her unmarried teenage daughter was pregnant ….

    Oh, he can bugger off! He didn’t mind the media when he was famous for being a millionaire. He courted it. Only when they quit kissing his ass and asking him to explain himself did he change his stance. He’s a crybaby. I’m no great defender of the media, but he is just such a whiny brat. Is he going to run to twitter every time someone says a minorly mean thing about him? I can’t believe this man is the president. Someone give him a mirror to keep him occupied until he’s impeached.

  58. jwoolman says:

    The anti-press quote he read from Thomas Jefferson (who actually generally supported an independent free press) should have included why Jefferson was so ticked at the newspapers. At the time, they were claiming he was sleeping with “one of his slaves”. Turned out much later, thanks to DNA evidence, that this wasn’t fake news at all and at least six of his children were with that particular woman in an apparently consensual long-term relationship.

    Oh, and my bet is that Trump’s non-existent Sweden attack (the Swedes had a field day with it on Twitter) was based on a story run by the German Bild, claiming that an immigrant group had assaulted scads of women. I saw a reference in one forum post by a Trumper claiming a Swedish woman was gang-raped by such a group, Trump must have picked up on that from either Fox News or Breitbart (the likely source for the Trumper). But the whole story turns out to be another Bowling Green Massacre – didn’t happen. Bild has apologized and the police are trying to track down the people who came up with the fake news.

    I take issue with that Prayer being used. I am tired. How do people selectively read the constitution ?

  60. Portia says:

    The press should continue reporting on Trump and his administration but they should actively boycott his press conferences. He only holds them to haggle and bully the reporters. The press should refuse to show up at his press conferences and he should be left standing in an empty hall. Those press conferences are literally a circus.
