From the POTUS:
“I’m making this presentation directly to the American people with the media present, which is an honor to have you, this morning, because many of our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth. And will not treat the wonderful people of our country with the respect that they deserve.”
“Many of our nation’s reporters and folks will not tell you the truth and will not treat you with the respect you deserve”
“Much of the media in Washington, D.C., along with New York, Los Angeles in particular, speaks for the special interests and for those profiting off the obviously very, very broken system.
“The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. Tremendous disservice. We have to talk about it. We have to find out what’s going on because the press honestly is out of control.”
“In other words, the media is trying to attack our administration because they know we are following through on pledges that we made, and they are not happy about it, for whatever reason. But a lot of people are happy about it.”
Obviously, Orange Elvis took the chaos in hand and dealt with it, inimitably. Jake Tapper smoldered with lividity. Back at the office, those editors and publishers with deep state sources are beginning to sweat at the prospect of falling prey to a canary trap and being prosecuted for espionage. Likewise, leakers in deep state are concerned that once the perp walks start, people are gonna roll over and they’re going down.
Yes, Trump has brought terrorism to America and the corporate media and politicized intelligence community deserve it. If he holds one of these every week, he will control the narrative and turn the media reactionary, as he did with remarkable success in the campaign.
The mandarins I read pretty much doubted Trump after the Flynn resignation. I think today’s press conference answered those concerns. People need to expect shock and awe from Trump. He uses candor like a weapon and delights in surprise. He thrives on the incessant hatred because he knows the opposition has surrendered ethics and morality in the desperate attempt to unseat him.
