Chuck Todd: Donald Trump’s
Delegitimization of Press ‘Un-American,’
‘Not a Laughing Matter’

Mediaite, by Alex Griswold

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/16/2017 2:37:53 PM

In a tweet sent during President Donald Trump‘s Thursday press conference, MSNBC host Chuck Todd indicated he didn’t find the bizarre hour-long back-and-forth with reporters all that humorous. The Meet the Press host live tweeted the spectacle, at times sending tweets that indicated he didn’t believe the president was telling the truth, and that the rambling press conference would damage his relationship with Congress.

Comments:
That sure didn´t take long! You knew those hacks in the media would hate every minute of that presser. Trump did what we have longed for any Republican to do for our entire lives, fight back against those liars. The insufferable Democrat hack Bernard Whitman was just on FNC and said that whole press conference was ´a hot mess.´ They HATE the fact that Trump fights back. It is absolutely delightful to witness.

Trump is not deligitimizing the press. He is deligitimizing CNN. And yes, it is hilarious. Guess what F Chuck - he will not lose one vote over it.

Boo Hoo! Chuck Todd is a Democrat hack who supported that lying crooked Hillary. How dare he call our President a liar! Did he ever call her out for lying? Nah. I don´t think so either. Has he ever brought up her letting Russia get our uranium. Nah. I don´t think so either. Has he ever asked her about getting debate questions ahead of the debate? Nah, I don´t think so either. He is making a fool of himself not Pres. Trump.

A healthy contempt for a biased press is as American as apple pie. It is also very American to do it with a smile, and even a guffaw. The only ones not laughing are those who place an ideological agenda ahead of the nation and its Constitution.

Un-American? Nonsense. He´s simply speaking his mind. What could be more American than that? And as far as it being no laughing matter, you´re right - and if your smart you´ll stop horsing around and take your journalistic duties - and Trump - more seriously, instead of treating him as if he were the class clown.

After eight years of stenography for the 0bama regime, the press deserves everything it gets. I hope media like ABCNBCCBSNYTLATWapo are destroyed and then replaced by responsible journalism. We need the press as watchdogs over goobermint at all levels, but the newspapers and networks we have now are guilty of journalistic malpractice.

If the press would stop presenting biased & adversarial personal commentaries instead of authentic journalistic factual NEWS reports, they wouldn´t be marginalizing themselves into irrelevance with the American people. -We see them doing it with their each & every word! Pres. Trump simply is too honest & too direct for them but THAT is exactly why we love this President. He tells it like it is. This President is a COURAGEOUS & honorable leader! The press is lost in LaLaLand.

The press has no idea, still, STILL, that Trump´s win is due in some part to the complete hatred of the press/the elites that average Americans have. I hear it in doctor´s offices, grocery stores, online, everywhere. "Real" people hate their smug, arrogant, condescending, heavily biased ways.

Just like the bratty little kid who continuously aggravates his older sibling, then when said older sibling has had enough and retaliates the little brat goes crying to mommy.

Stuff it, you twerp! You have been nothing but a leftist shill for decades. You are the one undermining the American system by becoming a willing propaganda dispenser for the left.

I agree, delegitimizing the press IS un-American. It´s what the press(media)have done to themselves by their blatant partisanship and outright lies.

Trump is like the little boy who points out that the Emperor is wearing no clothes, and the liberal media don´t like people to see them standing around naked.

Speaking of laughing matters... President Trump at times used humor in his press conference... loved it! He did a great job of speaking to the people.
BTW, are those gold drapes the Islamic-styled ones Ozero had installed? They may be bugged to provide the leaks... they are not a flattering color, for sure, and have a distracting pattern.

I will admit it has gotten worse since Jeremiah Wright´s “God-Damn America”-hating, taqiyah sunrise-drinking, Gay-obsessed, ankle-grabbing, sheet-grabbing, pillow-biting, radical Communist-Organizing Maladroit Marxist Muzlim Mallard started feeding them crap-sadwiches for eight years, but honestly I´ve had little respect for the National news since the 70s and no respect for them at all since the Monica Lewinsky scandal when they tried to bury it for weeks.

Poor pathetic UpChuck Toad. Let me clue you in Scooby Doo. President Trump´s treatment of you and the rest of the Democrat jock sniffers was a long time coming. You and your cohorts started delegitimizing your "profession" back in the 90s when the Dope from Hope flopped into the WH. You and the lib-presstitutes really took it up a notch when the Republicans won the House back in 94. Clinton was a angel and Gingrich was the devil incarnate who would take lofos welfare checks. Bush was evil and deserved death but Obama was the greatest thing since sliced cheese. Now in 2017 we have a president who will NOT let you get away with your obvious bias. Your network Toad has been bad enough but when your fellow network actually got involved in a presidential election what was un-American not a laughing matter? You better put you democrat kneepads away F-Chuck Toad get some depends and tissues. It´s going to be a long 8 years for you and the rest of your buddies. That alone makes this a laughing matter.

Peter King: Trump Surveillance Report
Shows ´Shameful´ Intel Violations
Fox News, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/22/2017 9:52:54     Post Reply
Congressman Peter King (R-N.Y.) called the revelation that President Trump´s transition team was identified during incidental surveillance activity "extremely significant." King said the fact that Trump´s name appeared in the reports obtained by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) was one of a few violations that were committed. Trump nor his associates were being wiretapped, King said. Instead the surveillance focused on foreign individuals who referenced them. "Any time your [American´s] name comes up, it´s supposed to be masked. Reports were written with names of these people and details," King said, adding that the information was then spread around

The race to build the world’s tallest skyscraper has reached new heights - and taken a turn in direction. Designs for ‘The Big Bend’, a slender tower that would transform Manhattan’s skyline have been unveiled. Described as the ‘longest building in the world’, the project´s concept drawings reveal a skyscraper reaching an apex then curving back down. And featuring an elevator system that can travel in curves, horizontally and in loops. In a bid to work around the challenges of New York’s zoning laws, design studio Oiio has imagined an innovative concept to straddle across Billionnaire’s Row on 57th Street.

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Wednesday that the Senate parliamentarian has told him that it may be possible for Republicans to push harder on repealing Obamacare´s regulations than the current House bill, which contradicts the assertion by House leadership that the legislation goes after Obamacare as aggressively as possible under Senate rules. "What I understood her to be saying is that there´s no reason why an Obamacare repeal bill necessarily could not have provisions repealing the health insurance regulations," Lee said in an interview with the Washington Examiner, relating a conversation with parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough about reconciliation he had on

House leadership considers ditching
Obamacare regulations to woo conservatives

In a last-minute bid to woo conservatives ahead of a high-stakes vote on Thursday on repealing and replacing Obamacare, House leaders are considering gutting more Obamacare regulations. (Snip) Previously, House leaders have argued that the regulations could not be nixed, because doing so would blow up the bill in the Senate, where Republicans will have to pass the measure under restrictive rules to enable it to clear with a simple majority. But a House leadership aide told the Washington Examiner that on Wednesday, Republicans received new information from the Senate, indicating that axing the regulations wouldn´t automatically doom the bill from

No, Sebastian Gorka is not a goose-stepping Nazi. (Snip) The personal attacks aimed at Gorka and Michael Anton, both key national-security aides to President Trump, aren’t the only false stories in the left’s smear campaign against these two. They have been painted in outlets like the New York Times, the Washington Post, Foreign Policy, Politico and the Atlantic as Islamophobic hardliners hellbent on dragging us into more Mideast wars. But that bears little resemblance to their writing, which the Trump haters haven’t bothered to explore in any depth. A closer reading of their voluminous writings reveals a cold-eyed realism about global affairs

People who are HIV positive have long been required to disclose this status before engaging in unprotected sexual intercourse. Considering the life-threatening condition caused by HIV, it stands to reason that potential partners have a right to know, since the disease is easily passed through sexual contact.

To save the hurt feelings of the dishonest partner: In a test of shifting attitudes about HIV, a group of state lawmakers has proposed that it no longer be a felony for someone to knowingly expose others to the disease by engaging in unprotected sex and not telling the

The Obama administration worked in its final weeks in office to undermine the incoming Trump White and continues to do so, according to multiple sources both in and out of the White House. Behind the effort, these sources say, are senior government officials who previously worked under President Obama and remain loyal to his agenda. These individuals leak negative information about the Trump White House and its senior staff to a network of former Obama administration officials who then plant this information in key media outlets including the Washington Post and New York Times. Meanwhile, holdovers from the Obama administration are working

Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car.

When Boston public schools introduced a new standard map of the world this week, some young students’ felt their jaws drop. In an instant, their view of the world had changed. The USA was small. Europe too had suddenly shrunk. Africa and South America appeared narrower but also much larger than usual. (Snip) The result goes a long way to rewriting the historical and sociopolitical message of the Mercator map, which exaggerates the size of imperialist powers. “This is the start of a three-year effort to decolonize the curriculum in our public schools,” said Colin Rose, assistant superintendent of opportunity and

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military

Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences

The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case.

"One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before

As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump. (Snip) "In case President Trump is watching, which he may very well be, one you did a good job picking Judge Gorsuch," Graham said to laughs, "and number two—here´s the bad part—if you start waterboarding people, you may get impeached. Is that a fair summary?" "Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body," Gorsuch answered.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a delay of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation on Tuesday given the ongoing FBI investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. “You can bet, if the shoe were on the other foot and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI, the Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances,” Schumer said on the floor. Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move

The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, took the extraordinary step on Monday of announcing that the agency is investigating whether members of President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Mr. Comey’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee created a treacherous political moment for Mr. Trump, who has insisted that “Russia is fake news” that was cooked up by his political opponents to undermine his presidency. Mr. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said officers would pursue it “no matter how long that takes.” (Snip) The New York Times and other news organizations
