Trump excoriated the press and their “very fake news” in a way that no other President has done. It was like a terrier shaking a rat. But he does it in such a non-threatening way; no shouting or vilifying or name calling. Trump has a way of dealing with unpleasant subjects that makes it hard to get offended – as long as you’re not a loon. Loons are different: difficult, unpleasant people. Lefty loons are even worse. Yeah, if you’re a loon there is nothing that you can’t take offense at.
Legal Insurrection has an article that relates how the media continues to have a royal snit over their education under Teacher Trump’s tutelage.
“The journalists at ABC on Wednesday erupted in “open hostility” to Donald Trump, accusing the President of “shutting down part of the First Amendment” by not calling on network reporters at a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Jon Karl, Cecilia Vega and Matt Dowd repeatedly whined about the “conservative” questioners who were chosen, lamenting that the preferred narrative of the liberal media wasn’t highlighted.
In the post-press conference coverage, Vega ranted, “I want to tell you about the open hostility right here in this room. You know, I’m sitting right here kind of in the middle of the pack of a number of journalists, mainstream reporters, if you will, and there is open anger in here about the fact the President did not take any real questions about the issue of the day.”
Angry liberal tears are best served chilled, shaken not stirred, with a shot of derision.
