President Trump's White House press conference on Thursday was Round Two of his battle with CNN's Jim Acosta.
It was supposed to be a presser for Trump to announce his new labor secretary nominee, which he did, but he spent a much longer time criticizing the media for their continued "fake news" coverage. In particular, he was incensed that multiple outlets were reporting false information about leaks coming out of the White House.
At CNN, Trump said, "there is so much hatred and anger" toward him that he just can't understand.
Seeing Acosta shake his head at his remarks, Trump said, "it's okay, Jim, you'll get your chance," meaning he'd soon call on him for a question.
"The public doesn't believe you people anymore," he frankly told Acosta and his network.
CNN is not a news network anymore....pull the plug on this network
Yesterday I was at my in-home client's home who ALWAYS has CNN on. For THREE damn hours...all I heard was Wolf Blitzer moan, bitch, whine about the way Trump was treating the press. I couldn't get out the door soon enough....another hour, and I'd probably have to buy her a new tv.
This is what happen when you can't tell a lie often enough for it to become truth! Trump insists that there be no more lies!
Self Reflection? Here is a bit of fake news, they removed all the mirrors at CNN eight years ago.
You know what? I hope the likes of cnn and msnbc don't let up. I hope they keep spewing their idiotic news and hatred for DJT.
WHY? Because it keeps the PEOPLE that voted for Trump engaged in what's going on. It get's their attention every time they say or print something bad about him and that intern, makes them mad and keeps their "ears to the ground."
Keep up the good (or not so good) news coming, cnn and the rest of the msm. I personally love it, ONLY FOR THE REASONS ABOVE!!
Trump needs to take the next step... to prosecute the illegal release of classified information by the MSM. The 1st Amendment doesn't protect sedition, espionage or treason... as free speech or freedom of the press. It is time to reign in the miscreants of espionage and seditious journalism... Treason is not entitled to protection under the 1st Amendment.
Venezuela already curtailed CNN's ability to report news in the country because it is too critical of the leadership there. The US needs to follow and diminish the role of all media that is critical of Trump. We the people elected our supreme leader, Donald J. Trump, who should not have to face attacks from the media that he does not approve of, same as in Venezuela, Russia, etc. Make America Great Again!
There's one problem with that....... We have the First Amendment. What we need is to set-up laws that they can't intentionally put out false info, lies, unsubstantiated news.....and I have mixed feelings about "anonymous" sources, unless they've got PROOF to offer that backs up their info.
Laws that regulate speech and the press already exist... The 1st Amendment does not guarantee free speech in all its forms, nor does it permit an unregulated Press... Some forms of speech and media/press are already unlawful ... Speech that incites riot, or causes public panic, Press that is libelous, seditious, engages in espionage, or promotes treason, is outlawed... illegal.
What we need is a DOJ that will prosecute the laws of the United States... by bringing action against those who abuse the 1st Amendment. We need AG Sessions and the President to investigate, prosecute and convict, those who are violating the laws of the United States... including those Laws which regulate speech and the press... We need the RULE OF LAW to apply to the MSM and politicians, as well as the people.
