Trump Thanks Limbaugh For Ignoring The Reality Of Yesterday’s Press Conference

(Before It's News)

If any of you saw Trump’s press conference yesterday and struggled with making sense out of it all, you’re not the only ones.

At some point, you probably checked to make sure you hadn’t actually stumbled across a rebroadcast of Saturday Night Live.

The supposed purpose of the conference was to talk about Trump’s new labor secretary pick, Alexander Acosta. What transpired was far less about Acosta (who was more of a footnote to the presser, than the actual topic), and far more about everything else, but ultimately, it was all about Trump. Again.

“I turn on the TV, open the newspapers, and I see stories of chaos,” Trump told reporters. “Chaos. Yet it is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine.”

“Tomorrow, they will say, ‘Donald Trump rants and raves at the press,’” Trump added. “I’m not ranting and raving.”

“I’m just telling you. You know, you’re dishonest people. But I’m not ranting and raving. I love this. I’m having a good time doing it.”

Ranting and raving would be something, at least.

The president briefly spoke about Acosta, but then went on to attack the media, calling them “fake news,” or “very fake news.”

He talked about blowing Russian ships out of the water and nuclear war with Russia.

We can at least take some comfort in that he said those would be bad things.

He asked a veteran reporter, April Ryan, if she was friends with the Congressional Black Caucus (Ryan is black), and if she could set up a meeting with them.

Honestly, it would be easy to assume he was asking her that because she was black (all black people are friends with other black people kind of thing), or we could give him the benefit of the doubt and say that because she brought it up, he was being glib and asking her to set up a meeting.

He talked about the mess he inherited, which is always pointless to hear from politicians taking office. Most of them run on the premise that things are a mess and they’re the only ones that can fix it. Trump was no different.

Trump also erroneously stated – again – that he had the biggest Electoral College win since Reagan. When it was pointed out that George H.W. Bush, Clinton, and Obama all had bigger Electoral College wins, he blew it off that this was just information that was given to him.

Translation: This was info from a meme he saw on Twitter.

By every rational account, this press conference was surreal. More than anything, it was just a random excuse for Trump to pimp his “brand” of the presidency, once again.

That didn’t stop the sycophants from sycophanting, however.

Rush Limbaugh, someone I used to respect, breathlessly praised the chaos.

“Just what the doctor ordered,” he said. “This is Donald Trump going over the head of the media right to the American people, advancing his domestic agenda and being totally transparent with these people.”

“They don’t know how to get on the same stage that he’s on,” the conservative commentator added. “The American people are gonna eat this up when they see it.”

Indeed.

I saw tweets from some of Trump’s loyal cultists referring to it as the “best news conference” they’d ever seen. Which leads me to believe it was the only news conference they’d ever seen.

This morning, Trump, from the comfort of his ego-bubble, tweeted out his thanks to Limbaugh for such devotion to bootlicking.

How long can the “fake media” shtick protect him? He’s a month in and even though he’s had several good picks, he’s also stepped in it just as many times. People like Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and that goon with Gateway Pundit are not helping him face reality.

But then, he wasn’t elected based on reality, was he?

    Anybody who applauds what President Trump did is not a cultist.
    The far left is having a feeding frenzy of all out combat war fear tactics of their constituents as if they’re committing a blood bath. And the fear is actually relevant that they are fueling unstable people to actually commit crimes against the conservatives. It is totally unprofessional and without merit or honor. But that is the way that they choose to portray themselves. Sad really.
    The calm and centered every day conservative sensible people just go about their important day to day real life productive activities while Soros and the other deep pocket treasonous leaders pay the bullies to destroy property at rallies across the United States. Despicable and way out in left field. They act like fascists and brutalize and vandalize and yet pretend they have a happy mask on saying cute quips and quotes that don’t make any sense. I’m truly sad that we have lost this portion of our society to lunacy and insanity. I just hope life gives them a gentle way of calming down and living a good life.

    Ilania read out the Lord’s Prayer!! Wow, sent shivers down my heart. What a wonderful day that an American leader can once again speak of God and his wife recite the Lord’s Prayer! Just “Wow”!! Sighs. :)
