President Donald Trump trolled the mainstream media for the third time in a row, as he refused to take questions from any “fake news” organization during his press conference on Wednesday.
Progressive mainstream media luminaries were left fuming and deploring how the President is shutting down the First Amendment and all that liberal palaver, yet many of the same leftists had no problem in likening Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler or the Taliban, spreading false rumors and fake news about his use of a Russian escort or accusing his administration of being Nazi, pro slavery and so on and so forth.
After President Trump’s presser with Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he avoided calling MSNBC’s Peter Alexander, who later complained that he would have done a better job than the conservative journalists who did not ask real questions in his opinion. Peter Alexander went on to saying:
“What was striking was that President Trump, again, called on a series of more conservative leaning news organizations which didn’t allow for any real questions, trying to zero in on this issue of Mike Flynn, the now former national security adviser.”
Who knows, maybe The Donald did not forget MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow comparison on his Inauguration day, when she associated his election to Adolf Hitler’s rise in Germany.
Rachel Maddow’s colleague Chris Matthews described President Trump’s inaugural address as Hitlerian. He also mocked the President’s family, likening them to the Romanovs, the Russian imperial family who was executed by the Bolsheviks in the 1917 revolution, a very interesting metaphor coming from a leftist.
In my book, these are pretty good motives for ignoring MSNBC, as these folks don’t seem to have a problem insulting the POTUS with their obsessive reductio ad Hitlerum arguments.
CNN reporters also felt the wrath of The Donald ignoring them during the same press conference:
“In the last three news conferences, Wolf (Blitzer), all of the questions to the American news media have been handled by conservative press, and I think, Wolf, there’s no other way to describe it but the fix is in. This White House, this president does not want to answer questions, critical questions, about his associates, his aides’ contacts with the Russians during the course of that campaign just as his national security advisor is being run out of this White House on a rail.
So, why is President Trump ignoring these folks?
Well, let’s remember how the CNN ran maniacally a news story about a (since discredited) rumor that The Donald had used the services of a Russian prostitute during his trip to Moscow. CNN never apologized for publishing the unverified report and they defended their decision incessantly since then.
ABC’s Dowd went on an intellectual slippery slope saying that:
“Well, I was struck by — when you look at this, this is two democracies, two important democracies in the world and basically the President of the United States is shutting down the part of the First Amendment by not taking questions that are going to be any way antagonistic in this,”
Well, this guy accused President Trump of playing the racial fears of his base for getting elected and he likened Trump to the Taliban, claiming that he will bring back slavery once elected.
President Trump called today the Christian Broadcast Network and Townhall.com news organization, even if both have run lots of negative stories about him. But they’ve never published fake news stories nor they ever compared The Donald to Hitler or other mass murderers.
