Washington Post Columnist Blames Foot surgeries, Anti-Trump Views On Why The White House Nixed His Press Pass.

Original Article

A liberal Washington Post columnist is blaming two foot surgeries and anti-President Trump views among the reasons the White House has cut him off at the knees. Dana Milbank announced in a column Wednesday that the press office at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has stripped him of his press pass. In a pretty sappy column, he explained that for the last 21 years he has had a “front-row seat to history.” I won’t bore you with the various moments in history that have touched him, but he said he’s not the only reporter who is suffering the loss.

Cry baby!! Why should the President (or anyone else) invite someone into his/her home who is actively trying to destroy them?

I suggest that Milbank go stand in the corner and suck his/her thumb until he/she learns to behave while in the White House.

Losing his White House pass couldn´t happen to a more deserving ***clown. The dreck Dana Milbank writes has nothing to do with reporting. So why should he be allowed to continue to go to meetings pretending to be a reporter?

If social media like FaceBook, Twitter, et al, can cut off Conservatives and deny them a platform, the White House can do it to the likes of Dana Milbank and his cohorts. Good for the goose, good for the gander. Social justice.

"Milbank insisted he’s not looking for readers to feel sorry for him."

Good. He won´t be disappointed. When you call for impeachment for no reason at all, you are not a reporter you are an old biased activist with an addled brain.

FTA "“Jew haters have enjoyed record greatness during the Trump presidency,” he wrote. “Saturday’s deadly attack at a California synagogue came exactly six months after a massacre at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. …Trump famously said there were some “very fine people” among the white supremacists who came to Charlottesville in 2017 for a white-nationalist rally at which armed neo-Nazis carried torches, chanted “Jews will not replace us” and killed a counterprotester.”"

Dana Milktoast is a reporter of fake news, a partisan leftist hack working for a leftist propagandist newspaper and is a little whiney arse! Trump never said white-nationalists were "very fine people" that´s pure BS that the left wants to push 24/7. If there are any Jew haters in DC they´re all Democrats including the anti-semitic Washington Post. Love what President Trump is doing to the fake news reporters and newspapers! Godspeed President Trump!

When the White House press corps are attending a WH presser, an assistant will pull a number out of hat that corresponds to the reporter´s press pass number. That reporter will be immediately and for no reason stripped of their credentials, banned from the White House, and doxxed. I´ve seen this kind of thing happening all over this socialist land, so I know it´s acceptable!/s

Awwwww….. Poor widdle Dana…

I learned to dislike this little twerp decades ago when he was one of the Libs on the deliberately diverse panels and roundtables that were on PBS and other channels. Dana had little of value to contribute. He looked pretty silly as he is very short. So short that when he was shown seated on a chair like everyone else, his feet didn’t quite touch the floor. Rather like a child.

His “sketches” are nasty little hit pieces. Nothing of value.

Maybe he thinks if he boo hoos enough like Acosta did it will get restored. Trump would not dream of denying somebody access because of foot surgery. In fact, if the person was somebody Trump felt was a good contributor, he would order every accommodation be made for that person. Millbank hasn´t done his job in years, and THAT is why you sniveling jerk you got your pass yanked.

Milbank is one of those folks that are very worthy of being entirely, totally ignored.

Collectively, they are The Enemedia, people dedicated to Fake News, lies and propaganda, seeking each and every day to find ways to distort, spin and often just make up things to print about Republicans and the President which will gain the Dems, the left, and all the anti-American factions some political advantage. They have no interest in facts or "the truth", they are propagandists.

Keep them out of the White House. It is a good thing.

"there’s something wrong with a president having the power to decide which journalists can cover him."

Milbank is not being stopped from covering Trump. Anytime he wants to he can write an article. Since it is obvious that facts and truth are not components of Milbank´s coverage, he shouldn´t need WH press access. He can make things up, just as he has been, from the comfort of his own home with his sore foot up on a pillow. I think Trump is being compassionate to Dana.

Leftism Makes People Meaner: Reflections
on the Torture of Paul Manafort

Posted by Toledo 6/11/2019 8:30:31 AM Post Reply
The sadistic treatment of Paul Manafort illustrates something I have believed since I attended graduate school in the 1970s and saw the behavior of left-wing students: Leftism makes people meaner. There are kind and mean conservatives and kind and mean liberals. Neither liberalism nor conservatism makes people kinder or meaner. But this is not the case with leftism. With the handful of exceptions that accompany every generalization, leftism makes people meaner, even crueler. Take the transfer of Manafort, the one-time Trump campaign manager, from a federal prison to New York's Rikers Island prison. Rikers Island is universally regarded as a wretched place.

House Democrats on Monday evening abruptly halted an effort to increase congressional pay for the first time since 2009, saying the proposal would be reviewed carefully after several freshmen Democrats made overt efforts to block it. Members of Congress generally make $174,000 per year, with senior leaders earning more, and no cost-of-living adjustments have been made in the past nine years. However, vulnerable swing-state Democrats, concerned how the proposed $4,500 pay hike would look if it didn't also have Republican support, had signed onto amendments rejecting the measure.

US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez turned tail on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue to avoid a potential Republican challenger as they both marched in the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday, her political opponent said. Talk-radio producer Rich Valdes told The Post that he tried to challenge the freshman Democratic congresswoman to a debate on the merits of capitalism versus socialism when he spotted her near West 47th Street. But Ocasio-Cortez “cut her handshaking short, jerked her hand back and jetted to the other side of the street,” Valdes said.

The last few days have been a clear example of why Sen. Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign is wobbling. Let’s begin with the former district attorney’s visit to her home ground for the 75th anniversary celebration of the Sun Reporter, the town’s African American newspaper. Harris worked the pre-party crowd with charm, sharing jokes and memories with everyone she came across. But when she took the stage, we got a 30-minute lecture on the importance of the First Amendment. An inspiring subject, but she went on way too long and without any reference to where she was or who was in the room.

But just a few years ago, climate scientists were insisting that a warming climate would cause water levels to decline.

It also shows that Joe Biden has the highest favorability ratings among the Democratic field.
