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.
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.
Chuckie Todd, put diapers on, you will need them! Get this you lying schemer, a President as well as citizens, we have the right to turn the button of not to have to listen to your pack of lies. Ditto for your lefty printed rags starting with the NYSlime, don´t bother to use them even for dog pooh pickup! Get it?
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.
Get this Todd, the PRESS sucks, they are liars and nasty and all they want to do is damage Trump and they do it by lying and creating FAKE news!
Get a freekin clue moron, we see all of this and YOU are the Joke so it is, to us, a Laughing Matter...to you it´s serious but you just can´t be honest. How hard is that...apparently for the Press it´s IMPOSSIBLE! STUFF IT!
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.
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.
It wasn´t meant to be humorous Chuck, it was meant to expose your ways and put you fabricators on notice to shape up. The public is getting more and more fed up with your slanted views and made up sources.
We know you lap dog rump-swabs. We know you coddled Bathhouse Bisexual Barry for eight long years...Now in just a matter of a few weeks you´ve constantly attacked our President and his White House, which makes you dolts out to be childish idiot liars.... You certainly ARE a laughing matter! Chuck U. Toad is an asshat of little common sense but all lefty pc agenda, a born liar!
Agree, It´s not a laughing matter. It´s a very serious matter because our country depends (or should depend) on the press to report the facts accurately - not half truths, twisted truths, or outright lies. The press be damned. Go Trump. Give´m hell in front of the world for all to see.
#41 - I hear ya, but I have to point out that the press in this country hasn´t been telling the truth for the entire 21st century! 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. Drudge was reporting the facts while they were poo-pooing Matt. Well look who turned out to be right!
Hillary told him to say that. Hey Chuck, Rudy says hi and is wondering why you haven´t asked him back on your little show. Still loving your last interview with him. Watching you twist and squirm when he made you stay on point till he corrected the twisted impression you tried, but failed, to create, was delicious.
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.
WOW! John McCain is leading a vicious campaign against the Russian government since the November election. In January McCain suggested the Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” But it wasn’t that long ago that Senator McCain requested campaign donations from Russian officials. Wikileaks released documents this week following the sudden death of Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin. There are several documents on McCain’s request for donations from the Russians. In 2008 the Russian mission released a letter on a fundraising attempt from John McCain. According to Reddit users John McCain illegally asked for campaign donations from
The Trump administration Wednesday revoked federal guidelines issued by former President Barack Obama that allowed public school students to use restrooms and other facilities corresponding to their gender identity. A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General´s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not "undergo any formal public process" or explain how the directive was "consistent with the express language of Title IX," the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities. "Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,"

SecureDrop is a system of communication made available by the Freedom of the Press Foundation to protect journalists and their sources. It uses an encrypted and anonymous computer network known as Tor and routes internet connections through a series of different computers around the globe, making it largely untraceable. The network requires use of a special web browser, which is available here. The system
With immigration courts reaching a record backlog in 2016, Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly ordered Monday that illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. for less than two years should be allowed to be deported without a court hearing. Kelly signed two memos Monday that made significant changes to the nation’s immigration policy. They ordered the immediate construction of a border wall, expanded the amount of local police who will enforce immigration law, and put every illegal immigrant — excluding those protected under President Obama’s executive amnesty — at risk of deportation. Condemnation of the plan by pro-immigration
It is a classic matchup that places the Democratic Party´s unwavering commitment to diversity on full display: The two front-runners in this week´s election for DNC chairman are a race-obsessed black hate monger and a race-obsessed Hispanic hate monger. (Snip) Consider, first, Ellison´s track record. At various times, he has characterized the U.S. Constitution as “the best evidence of a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples”; advocated slavery reparations as well as the creation of a geographically self-contained “homeland” for black people; and defended the late Nation of Islam spokesman and black supremacist Khalid Abdul Muhammad, who famously rejoiced
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday openly fretted that Donald Trump’s new immigration orders “could create a climate of fear” for illegal “citizens.” (Yes, co-host Gayle King used the word “citizen.”) Talking to USA Today bureau chief Susan Page, Anthony Mason worried, “This could create a climate of fear in the immigrant community, if it hasn´t already.” Page agreed, “I think it has.” She justified, “Remember that two-thirds of illegal immigrants have been here at least a decade. So, they´re really part of the fabric of our life. Although, admittedly, they´re here illegally.” King insisted, “But they´ve been
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D., Ca.) says the darndest things. Since President Trump won the election, Rep. Waters has not hesitated to be an outspoken critic of his administration. She refused to go to his inauguration, stated publicly that she doesn´t want to work with him, called him a dictator, and even called for his impeachment less than a month into his presidency. Here are some of the unusual things Waters has said since the election: (Snip) 3. When she called Trump and his aides a bunch of ‘s*umbags.´ "This is a bunch of s*umbags. That´s what they are." 4. Waters
A group serving as a central hub of information for congressional town halls was founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer and its parent company is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros. Democrats have insisted that recent town hall outbursts against Republican politicians occurred organically, likening them to the Tea Party, while President Donald Trump yesterday tweeted that the "so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous occasions, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!" The Town Hall Project, a group that serves as a one-stop shop
Congratulations Morning Consult, you misreported your own poll. This morning the outlet reported a new poll with the headline: "Audiences want ´Saturday Night Live´ to keep ribbing Trump." But their own numbers tell a different story. While President Trump can´t take a joke and often criticizes the comics, it turns out that he´s not a bad judge of humor. Morning Consult´s own numbers suggest that slightly more viewers want "SNL" to move on past Trump than want the show to keep the Trump joke going. Without funny business, here´s the real math. It´s true that 33 percent of respondents say they crack up
Michael Rectenwald is a professor at New York University (NYU). On Tuesday The O’Reilly Factor tweeted out a podcast featuring Professor Rectenwald. The NYU professor spoke about the dangerous radicalism dominating US campuses. (Snip) Rectenwald wrote: I don’t want to reproduce the putrid and vile character of this attack, but I will say this: Today’s “Left” is rife with the most obscene, abusive, nasty, spiritually ugly and utterly unethical, hypocritical and fanatically horrible people I’ve ever encountered in my 58 years on earth. When I was a left-liberal activist and founder of Citizens for Legitimate Government after the first GWB
On Tuesday, John Kelly, President Trump’s secretary of Homeland Security, published a six-page, single-spaced memorandum detailing new guidance on immigration enforcement. Thereupon, I spent about 1,500 words summarizing the guidance in a column at National Review. Brevity being the soul of wit, both the memo and my description of it could have been reduced to a single, easy-to-remember sentence: Henceforth, the United States shall be governed by the laws of the United States. That it was necessary for Secretary Kelly to say more than this -- and, sadly, that such alarm has greeted a memo that merely announces the return
Donald Trump’s education secretary opposed any change to President Barack Obama’s pro-transgender policy, according to a report in the New York Times, even though Obama’s rules would have exposed the nation’s single-sex institutions and civic groups to crippling lawsuits by gay advocacy groups. But Attorney General Jeff Sessions prevailed in the closed-door dispute, and with aid from Trump, persuaded Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to support a reform of the Obama’s pro-transgender policy. The reform, which may be unveiled tomorrow, will junk Obama’s May 2016 directive which effectively declares that children can change their sex by simply declaring they have the
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., predicted Tuesday that many Republican lawmakers will break from President Trump by June if he continues to push forward with his agenda. Schumer told "The View" that while most Republicans have declined to publicly break with Trump during the first month of his presidency, many privately admit they have "real problems" with him. He also argued that some are sticking by him because of party loyalty and his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia´s seat on the Supreme Court. "When you talk to Republicans quietly — in the cloakroom
Fox News announced the signing of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel as a healthcare and policy analysis contributor on Tuesday. Along with Jonathan Gruber, Emanuel is best known for being one of the “architects” of the Affordable Care Act. He currently serves as chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania and is a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. He will reportedly appear on both Fox News and Fox Business Network.
A group of global investors with $11 trillion in managed assets told Texas on Tuesday not to enact legislation restricting access to bathrooms for transgender people, saying it is discriminatory and bad for business. The "Texas Privacy Act," or Senate Bill 6, has been marked as a priority for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled state Senate. He said the measure protected the privacy and safety of Texans. The bill on a flashpoint issue in the United States is similar to a law enacted last year in North Carolina
A Mexican man has apparently taken his own life just half an hour after being deported from the United States. Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, jumped from a bridge at the border after he was deported for the third time. He was found unconscious next to a plastic bag with his belongings and died in hospital a short while later. His death came as the Trump administration issued new guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US. (Snip) Mr Olivas was a native of Sinaloa, one of Mexico's most violent states and the stronghold of the cartel formerly led by jailed drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
(Video) MSNBC´s Mika Brzezinski criticized President Donald Trump on Wednesday for undermining the media´s message by creating his own facts, adding that the "job" of the media is to "control exactly what people think." Brzezinski made the comment on "Morning Joe" after co-host Joe Scarborough said that he agreed with a panelist´s view that Trump supporters are wondering why people are so upset over what the president is doing since he is implementing exactly what he campaigned on. "What Yamiche [Alcindor] said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to, who were Trump voters and
AmeriCorps sounded like a good idea. Create a program where American youth could basically earn free college by working and helping their communities. On the surface -- and if you don´t understand the inherent issue with any government program -- it sounds like a great way to help people get their educations. The program -- which never reached the level its creator Bill Clinton envisioned -- now finds itself on the chopping block along with other left-wing darlings such as the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. College officials are freaking out: The Trump administration is circulating
In San Francisco, an Indian software engineer on a work permit canceled plans to bid on a $900,000 home. In Washington, a Brazilian nonprofit executive passed on a fixer-upper near her office. And, in Mesa, Arizona, a 24-year-old son of undocumented Mexican immigrants won the trust of a bank -- a green light for a mortgage -- but now fears deportation. President Donald Trump’s immigration policies threaten to crack a foundation of the American economy: the residential real estate market. Legal and otherwise, immigrants, long a pillar of growth in homebuying, are no longer feeling the warm welcome and optimism
Astronomers have spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away. Seven Earth-like planets have been discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star ´Trappist-1´, and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life. Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them. Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said ´this is just the beginning.´ No other star system discovered before has been found to
The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. (Snip) That is the white flight that should most concern the next D.N.C. chairman, because those voters make up a more promising way to reclaim the White House. The way to win them back is by being more progressive, not less. To be clear, all white voters matter. But Democrats must make tough, data-driven decisions about how to prioritize their work. Right now, too many are using bad math and
A lesbian named Ash Fisher surprised herself by falling in love with a man! Even though she is in a relationship with him, however, she still maintains she is a lesbian. I have a femme tattoo on my arm, which was sticked-and-poked by a fellow queer on another queer´s couch during Pride. I run a queer feminist comedy show called "Man Haters." Much of my standup act revolves around my queerness. Basically, I´m super gay. Before meeting him, I identified not just as queer, but as a dyke.
A THR and National Research Group survey reveals how little the average moviegoing citizen knows about this year´s Oscars. Yes, you read that headline correctly — come hell or high water, six out of 10 Americans could not name a single best picture nominee, according to a new poll commissioned by The Hollywood Reporter that canvassed moviegoers on both sides of the political fence. But, hidden in the figures, there is some good news for the Academy: Seven in 10 respondents say they’ll be watching the Oscars anyway. (Video) THR’s poll — conducted by the National Research Group, which in
The mainstream media have stepped up their complaints about President Trump amid pious howls mostly about the First Amendment. The issue, however, has nothing to do with that. It´s that these organizations are openly asserting a right to define, control and impose their world-view on us. That´s the real problem. To start, they are defining what is and isn´t offensive in America today, claiming they can make those designations even while admitting they don´t have all the facts, and that you, the reader, deserve to lose your job if you fall outside of the rigid box they construct. There are numerous
