CNN sucks!  CNN sucks! CNN sucks!

But let me tell you something you may not know.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news” “Communist News Network” (CNN) is having a bad week…, or should I say ANOTHER bad week?

And I’m not talking about their ratings…, which are horrible…, which goes without saying.

cnn 3

I’m referring to their collection of “on air” personalities, acting embarrassingly like the hypocritical, entitled and crybaby liberals they are.

cnn 1

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “It’s been another rough week for CNN as the network suddenly has a plethora of off-screen issues in addition to its usual ratings struggles.”

‘“Just when one thought things couldn’t get any worse for CNN, they did,’ NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News.”

‘“In CNN’s current form, they’ve always had putrid ratings, disingenuous personalities and a pathetic inability to simply cover the news – instead fearmongering the small, anti-Trump audience into submission – but this past week was possibly the worst ever in totality.’”

cnn 2

“The liberal news network started off the week making headlines for the wrong reasons. ‘CNN Tonight’ host Don Lemon was accused in a civil suit of a sexually charged assault of a bartender in New York’s posh Hamptons area last year.”

cnn 10

cnn 9

“The same evening that the Lemon news broke, on Tuesday, video circulated of CNN political analyst April Ryan looking on while a local news editor appeared to be violently removed from an event where she was a keynote speaker.”

Yes…, violently removed by her own bodyguard!  Then when she was asked about the “KGB-like” behavior, she inexplicably said, “When I speak, I don’t have News covering my speech,” like it’s somehow her choice. And this coming from a woman who regularly flaunts her disrespect and general rudeness during the White House press conferences.

cnn 5

cnn 6

cnn12

“The Lemon and Ryan headlines came less than 24 hours after video of ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ namesake Chris Cuomo threatening a man who called him ‘Fredo’ went viral, capturing the attention of President Trump in the process.”

cnn 8

‘“This was not a good week to be CNN. In addition to its abysmal ratings, three of its top news personalities are embroiled in scandal and controversy,’ Cornell University Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson told Fox News.”

‘“In a rational world, CNN leadership would implement a dramatic course correction, but there is no sign that rationality prevails at CNN,’ he said.”

No…, no sign at all!

“While CNN defended Cuomo, the president had a different take on the profanity-filled rant.”

‘“I think what Chris Cuomo did was horrible. His language was horrible, he looked like a total out-of-control animal. He lost it,’ President Trump told reporters.”

“The CNN host is the younger brother of Andrew Cuomo, the Democratic governor of New York. But Cuomo’s outburst over being referred to as ‘Fredo,’ a reference to Fredo Corleone, the weak and facile [and stupid] brother in the movie ‘The Godfather,’ has been labeled hypocritical because several CNN personalities have used the exact reference to mock President Trump’s children.”

cnn 7

Again…, a typical liberal trait…, they can dish it out but they can’t take it.

Hypocrites, every one.

“CNN’s public relations team called the remark ‘an ethnic slur’ and Cuomo compared it to ‘the N-word’ for Italians. But CNN and the ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ host didn’t seem to think the word was some sort of vile smear in the past.”

I would say that is belittling the significance of “the N-word” to African-Americans.

“The New York Post unearthed an old video in which Cuomo playfully referred to himself as ‘Fredo’ during a 2010 radio interview and CNN’s Ana Navarro used the moniker [Fredo] to belittle Donald Trump Jr. earlier this year on Cuomo’s very own show. Cuomo didn’t reprimand Navarro for using the term that he now feels is equivalent to ‘the N-word.’ CNN anchor Jake Tapper has also used the term, while CNN legal analyst Paul Callan used it in an op-ed earlier this year.”

Apparently, just like “the N-word,” “Fredos” are allowed to call other “Fredos” Fredo.

“In fact, CNN pundits and guests have used the term “Fredo” so much that the Washington Free Beacon put together a montage of various times it was uttered on the liberal news network.”

“CNN’s most-watched program during July was “Cuomo Prime Time,” which finished No. 24 overall among cable news, behind 14 different Fox News shows and nine programs on MSNBC. It remains to be seen if the negative press will push CNN’s viewership further down the gutter, but McCall certainly doesn’t think it will help.”

“CNN’s most-watched program during July” was Chris Cuomo’s show…, and it was ranked 24th?!

No wonder they’re defending Cuomo so adamantly.  What network could afford to lose the 24th ranked show?!

And that’s ranked higher than any of their other shows?!

cnn 11

George Soros must be personally subsidizing this mess of a liberal propaganda network.

Just sayin’.

“Houck added CNN’s troubled week ‘started with Jake Tapper allowing Beto O’Rourke to say without pushback that tens of millions who voted for Donald Trump are racist and arguably condone white supremacy’ on Sunday before the Cuomo, Lemon and Ryan stories unfolded.”

‘“It was quite embarrassing,’ Houck said.”

It’s not embarrassing to the network, however, Mr. Houck, nor is it embarrassing to their meager collection of liberal zombie viewers.

They’ll just cry “racism,” blame it all on President Trump, and proceed with business as usual.

CNN’s ratings have fallen, and they can’t get up!

Yes…, CNN’s ratings are falling like a rock, and they have been for quite a while now.

A once proud and even iconic new channel, which had been trumpeted by the unmistakable voice of James Earl Jones, is in deep trouble.

Their ratings are collapsing.

People began seriously questioning the credibility of the biased, fake news media, led by CNN, during the Obama years, and then especially during President Trump’s campaign run, the beginning of his presidency, and right on up to today.

cnn 14

Conservatives don’t watch the channel anymore because their philosophy is constantly under attack on this network, and the “fake news” and liberal propaganda was just too much to bear.  Many liberals have become disenchanted with CNN as well due to the growing lack of credibility and an increase of misinformation, especially where the Mueller Report and Russian Collusion were involved.

CNN has taken the acceptable amount of liberal bias to a whole new level.

Beyond the realm of bias into the world of unabashed propaganda.

cnn 8

cnn 7

cnn 3

cnn 2

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “News network CNN is planning to reduce its headcount, leaving many staffers worried for their jobs. As the network’s ratings continue to sag, over 100 CNN employees have accepted voluntary buyouts…”

“CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging typically less than half of Fox News Channel’s average. But CNN struggled even more during the prime time hours, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel.”

The Hallmark Channel?

At this point, more people are tuning in to watch “SpongeBob Squarepants” than Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo or Don Lemon.

cnn 12

“CNN is suffering a credibility crisis… with no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders.”

Of course not!

Don’t you get it?!

They’re not going to try and “fix” anything because they don’t think anything is broken!

They’re pumping out the liberal propaganda and fake news just like they intend to.

In their eyes we’re the ones who are broken, not them!

cnn 1

cnn 6

cnn 4

cnn 5

cnn 13

Don’t worry about CNN.  They’ll continue to be subsidized by their big liberal corporate friends, like Nike, Starbucks, Apple, Google, Time Warner, Under Armor and a hundred others.

“CNN did not immediately respond when asked for comment.”

Does this surprise anybody?

CNN’s programming strategy is anti-Trump all the time.

They have abandoned ANY semblance of fairness or balance.

“Cable news viewership has declined in general as more and more consumers cut the cord in favor of streaming services, but CNN’s losses are overwhelming. The network lost 18 percent of its audience compared to the second quarter of last year. CNN also dropped a whopping 38 percent of prime time viewers among the key demo [demographic].”

I’m sure MSNBC will be following CNN’s lead in the near future.

Only one network at a time can be flushed down the toilet!  They’re all in there swirling around the bowl right now, and CNN is closest to the drain!

WINNING!

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” strikes again!

“We should be outraged by FOX and its apologists,” according to The Washington Post.

Another liberal “rag” magazine, The Nation, recently pronounced that, “Fox News has always been propaganda.”

Sounds like just another coordinated, fake news narrative being spun on multiple fronts.

The sheer and utter hypocrisy of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” just never ceases to amaze me…, and they just have NO shame.

fake news

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” turned its collective head and looked the other way on countless occasions during the Obama years, or when it had to, they “reasoned away” many concerns or dreamed up excuses as they deemed necessary.

Their behavior during Obama’s reign was the definition of being an “apologist.”

Any fair minded people know that the “biased, liberal propaganda, fakes news media” does not even make an attempt anymore to appear fair or balanced with their coverage of President Trump, the republicans, or conservatives in general.

So I’ll tell you what Washington Post…, you and your friends go on and be outraged at whoever you want and the rest of us will be outraged at whoever we want…, ok?

We all know what causes your “outage.”  It’s the fact that FOX and FOX News does not walk in lock step with your liberal agenda.

fakenews 0724 resized

What causes our “outrage” is the fact that the mainstream media has become a propaganda arm of the democrat party and along with liberals and socialists everywhere.

The trust and the reputation of the mainstream media is gone and I don’t think it’s ever coming back.

Congratulations.

The hypocrisy of “the left” knows no bounds!

According to Paul Farhi of The Washington Post, “The Democrat National Committee (DNC) has decided to exclude Fox News Channel from televising any of its candidate debates during the 2019-2020 cycle …”

Is this even legal?  Isn’t this a violation of the freedom of the press?  It surely is at least un-American.

You can’t say the democrats aren’t consistent.

Consistently hypocritical.

Consistently unconstitutional.

“In a statement Wednesday, DNC Chairman Tom Perez cited a story in the New Yorker magazine this week that detailed how Fox has promoted President Trump’s agenda. The article, titled ‘The Making of the Fox News White House,’ suggested that the news network had become a ‘propaganda’ vehicle for Trump.”

(Please see my other blog today on this very topic.)

“I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,” said Perez in his statement to The Washington Post.

Soooo you “expand” your electorate “and reach all voters” by excluding certain news coverage?  You “expand” the reach of your party by excluding the most watched cable news channel on TV?  Is this what they call liberal common sense?  It sounds like you’re talking out of both sides of your mouth.  You’re a democrat alright!

‘“That is why I have made it a priority to talk to a broad array of potential media partners, including Fox News.  Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates,’ Perez added.”

Oh, you mean they won’t be fair and neutral and allow the DNC to provide debate questions to your candidate of choice before the debate, like what happened last time at a CNN debate?

tom perez and brazile

We are all also painfully aware of how “fair and neutral” the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is towards President Trump and the virtually 100% negative reporting around the clock.

But that’s okay?

It sure is okay…, in the whacky world of irrational and hypocritical democrats.

“Hours later, Trump responded to the decision by suggesting he might seek to retaliate.”

“Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate,” he said in a tweet Wednesday night. “Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!”

Nice retaliatory strike Mr. President!  The DNC obviously didn’t consider what the repercussions of their “stupidness” would be.  That’s what happens when all of these idiots get together in a room and bounce dumb ideas off of each other.

“Numerous networks, including Fox, have submitted proposals to the DNC to televise one of the 12 scheduled debates, which will start in June.”

12 debates?!  And that’s only amongst the democrats!  By the time we get to the twelfth debate there won’t be anything left that the democrats and their socialist government can give away “free” that the democrat candidates will be able to promote.

“So far, the organization has only awarded rights to the first two, to NBC (along with sister networks MSNBC and Telemundo) and to CNN.”

Telemundo?!  Really?

Well, I suppose the DNC does have to be careful to consider the tens of millions of illegal immigrant voters who can’t speak English.

I’m sorry…, I’m bad…, I know it…, but I just couldn’t help myself.

“In a statement, Fox News Senior Vice President Bill Sammon said: ‘We hope the DNC will reconsider its decision to bar Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, all of whom embody the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism, from moderating a Democrat presidential debate. They’re the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters.’”

We shouldn’t be surprised by these turn of events.  The DNC is just the logical extension of the liberal fascists we see all of the time attempting to silence conservative voices on college campuses around our country and at other public events and public protests.

We are well aware of their “playbook” by now.

In the Socialist democrat world, the freedom of speech only applies to those who believe like they do.  Everyone else must be shouted down, silenced and labeled as racists, misogynists, homophobes and Nazis.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo is a chip off the old “fake news” block!

Literally no one watches CNN anymore, so it’s pretty likely you have no idea who Chris Cuomo is.

Well, Mr. Cuomo is the “star” of his own nightly show called “Cuomo Prime Time.”  Wow, well, that’s original…, and catchy too!

His father is the former democrat governor of New York, Mario Cuomo.  Chris obviously didn’t have to climb that career ladder too high.

Recently, Cuomo has gone on record, calling Fox News “State TV,” and “pawns of The President.”

Puhleasssssssssssssssse Mr. Cuomo.  Are you serious?

Do you recall how Barack Obama was treated by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” during his eight years in office, and even before that, and now afterwards?

Do you recall all of the “softball” interviews?

Do you recall putting a positive spin on anything that came out of the Obama administration?

Do you recall all of the justification, clarification and/or excuse making you and your friends took part in on Obama’s behalf?

Do you recall not questioning anything put out by Obama or his administration?

Do you recall the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media’s” “love affair with Barack, Michelle, and their family?

The utter and unabashed hypocrisy of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” knows no bounds, and it has no shame.

According to Christina Zhao, reporting for “Weaknews,” I mean “Newsweek,” “CNN anchor Chris Cuomo blasted rival network Fox News as “pawns of this president” and “state TV” while interviewing President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.”

“During the segment, Lewandowski attempted to argue that the president is “more accessible to the media than any president in modern history,” a sentiment that Cuomo strongly disagreed with.”

“That’s poppycock,” Cuomo said. “He won’t even come on CNN.  He only goes where he gets a pat on the back.”

Oh…, you mean like how Obama never came on Fox?  Like that?

And “Poppycock?”

The 1940’s called, Cuomo, and they want their funny sounding words back!

‘“In prime-time TV, and from a management perspective, they are pawns of this president,’ he said later in the segment.”

The New Yorker magazine’s writer Jane Mayer told CNN that Fox News seems to be operating as a “propaganda organization” for the president.

Calling Fox News a “propaganda organization” for President Trump is just another example of CNN operating as a propaganda organization for the democrats.

That is precisely their M.O.

We have seen it right down the line.  They accuse their opponents of doing exactly the same thing they are guilty of doing in order to divert attention away from them and muddle-up the public’s understanding of the situation.

Denying election results.

Voter fraud.

Russian collusion.

Obstruction of justice.

Abuse of power.

Treason.

These are all things the democrats are guilty of, but also things they have projected onto President Trump and his associates, and things the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” has run with to support their liberal, socialist, partners in crime.

Again, just be aware “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” that “We the People” are now operating with our eyes wide open and paying attention, and you can’t just get away with your concocted and twisted narrative anymore!

WINNING!

This CNN analyst’s level of confusion is quite impressive!

CNN legal “analyst,” Areva Martin, called out a Fox News contributor for his “white privilege” while talking to him recently on his SiriusXM radio show.

The only problem with that is he’s a black man!

David Webb, a radio host on SiriusXM and a frequent Fox News contributor, is black.

When Webb, who is a Fox Nation host and frequent Fox News contributor, said he considered his qualifications more important than his skin color when applying to media jobs, Ms. Martin (who is a black woman) accused him of exercising white privilege.

“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” he responded. “I’m black.”

In the actual interview, David Webb says, “I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one; I never considered my color the issue; I considered my qualifications the issue.”

Areva Martin then responds: “Well, David, that’s a whole other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”

“How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Webb asks.

“David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege. This whole long conversation, I don’t have time to get into …”

Webb then interrupts her to let her know he’s a black man, causing Martin to take a pause.

“You see, you went to white privilege; this is the falsehood in this,” Webb replies. “You went immediately with an assumption. Your people, obviously, or you didn’t look.”

Ms. Martin the proceeds to apologize repeatedly for her false accusation, adding that “her people” gave her the wrong information.

So Ms. Martin is saying that she just blindly regurgitates whatever “her people” feed her?

Is this what we are referring to when we talk about “talking heads?”

Ms. Martin should be woman enough to accept the criticism here and not throw “her people” “under the bus,” but in typical liberal fashion, nothing is ever her fault it’s always the fault of someone else.

“You’re talking to a black man . . . who started out in rock radio in Boston, who crossed the paths into hip-hop, rebuilding one of the greatest black stations in America and went on to work at Fox News where I’m told apparently blacks aren’t supposed to work, but yet, you come with this assumption, and you go to white privilege,” Webb says. “That’s actually insulting.”

According to Michael Brice-Saddler for the Washington Post, “Martin has not publicly acknowledged the incident, and a spokeswoman for Areva Martin declined to comment.”

“After the interview, Webb made light of Martin’s gaffe by posting photos of himself with white men, writing on Twitter: ‘Just two guys showing their #WhitePrivelege.’ pic.twitter.com/mXWv47dTTX

— David Webb (@davidwebbshow) January 15, 2019”

Brice-Saddler continues by saying, “The exchange became a popular topic on Fox News, where Tucker Carlson discussed it Tuesday night, shortly before Webb appeared on “The Ingraham Angle.” The following morning, he was back on Fox to discuss the incident with “Fox and Friends,” telling the hosts that white privilege is a “false narrative.”

“‘There is no such thing as white privilege,’ Webb said. ‘There’s earned privilege in life that you work for. There are those who may have a form of privilege that they exert . . . in the form of influence.’”

“If a conservative analyst had made the same mistake as Martin, there would be calls for that person to be fired, Webb said.”

“He said he has invited Martin back to his show to ‘have a longer conversation about white privilege.’”

“‘Our skin’s an organ, it doesn’t think or formulate ideas, it just says: This is a result of your parentage,’ he said.”

“‘She got caught,’ he said of Martin, but added: ‘I have no reason to “diss” her.’”

You may not want to “diss” her Mr. Webb, but I will!

For your information Ms. Areva Martin, racism can cut both ways.  Just because you are black and/or a liberal does not mean you get a free pass to say ignorant things or racist things and get away with them.  I know you’re used to getting away with stuff like this on CNN or MSNBC, but you better be prepared and on your game when talking to conservative talk show hosts or when appearing on Fox News.

Brilliant!  CNN’s Jim Acosta makes President Trump’s case for him without even realizing it!

“I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation.. at least not in the McAllen TX area of the border where Trump will be today. pic.twitter.com/KRoLdszLUu”

— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) January 10, 2019

Ian Schwartz of RealClear Politics reported that, “White House officials and Trump supporters on Twitter roundly mocked CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta after he filmed himself taking a walk along a border barrier he called “tranquil” and claiming there was “no national emergency.”

Per Jim Acosta’s CNN broadcast:

“Here’s some of the steel slats that the president has been talking about,” Acosta said as he grabbed a bar. “As you can see, yes, you can see through these slats to the other side of the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“But as I am walking along here we’re not seeing any kind of imminent danger,” Acosta reported as he walked against the barrier. “There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence here in the McAllen, Texas area.”

“As a matter of fact, there are some other businesses behind me along this highway. There’s a gas station, a Burger King and so on,” the intrepid reporter said into the camera.

“No sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about. As a matter of fact, it’s pretty tranquil down here.”

Acosta then ended his transmission.

Ha!

Not only is Jim Acosta obnoxious, he’s an obnoxious idiot.

Actually, it turns out that he is an obnoxious, useful, idiot!

And that’s the best kind!

I’m sure Mr. Acosta is kicking himself for unwittingly making the President’s point for him.

Let’s see what some others had to say about Jim “I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat” Acosta!

“When I went with President @realDonaldTrump to the border today I never imagined @Acosta would be there doing our job for us and so clearly explaining why WALLS WORK. Thanks Jim! https://t.co/7wC4rdEsZ2”

— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) January 10, 2019

 

“I would like to thank @Acosta for pointing out how peaceful, safe and secure it is at a part of the border that HAS a wall. #RealNews #BuildTheWall  https://t.co/bkssL9nOW3”

— Brad Parscale (@parscale) January 10, 2019

 

“A sincere and heartfelt “thank you” to @Acosta and @CNN for finally showing what @POTUS has been saying: barriers work! Great job Jim!!! https://t.co/jZx1NanMgh”

— Hogan Gidley (@hogangidley45) January 10, 2019

 

“Brilliant reporting from CNN’s @Acosta —walls work! Thank you Jim! https://t.co/Ymw9iCgPzx”

— U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (@SenBillCassidy) January 10, 2019

 

“Is it possible Acosta is actually a pro-Trump false flag operating under deep cover in the media? If so, he’s a genius. https://t.co/EvRYGrIQZI”

— Buck Sexton (@BuckSexton) January 10, 2019

 

Yes, thank you Jim.

Thank you for your unwitting support.

WINNING!

Where are your manners Jim Acosta?  Who do you think you are?   

After an unprofessional performance at a White House press conference earlier this week, CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, has been denied access to The White House “until further notice.”

White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, announced yesterday that CNN’s Jim Acosta had his press pass suspended by The White House.

“I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH,” Acosta cried via a tweet Wednesday night. “Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds…”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Acosta’s tweet in a later statement, claiming the suspension of his press credentials stemmed from his “placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern.” She called the behavior “absolutely unacceptable.”

Is Jim Acosta related to Bill Clinton in any way?  Just wondering.

The CNN reporter, during a news conference at the White House earlier Wednesday, got into a heated debate with Trump after he asked the president about the migrant caravan. “Honestly, I think you should let me run the country and you run CNN,” the president said.

Acosta tried to ask the President another question before a female White House aide walked over to him.

President Trump then told him, “That’s enough!”

Acosta continued to try to talk as the intern was seen trying to take the microphone from his hand.  She grabbed the microphone but Acosta wouldn’t give it up and there was contact between the two and he actually chopped down on her arm.  If you get a chance to actually watch the video, I’m sure you’ll agree that it is quite obvious.

I’m sorry Jim, the “fake news” may try and convince us we’re not seeing what we’re seeing, but we did see it, and it is what it is.

In a later statement, Sanders said, “President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration.”

“Contrary to CNN’s assertions,” Sanders continued, “there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today.  Only they would attack the President for not being supportive of a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of an hour and a half, including several from the reporter in question.”

“The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it is an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration,” Sanders added.

CNN said Jim Acosta has “our full support.”

Of course he has their support, he’s their poster boy for obnoxious and biased “reporting.”

The White House Correspondents’ Association in a statement called the move “unacceptable,” and urged the White House to “immediately reverse this weak and misguided action.”

Isn’t the White House Correspondents’ Association the same group that hires lame, supposed, comedians to bash President Trump at their pretentious little annual get together to pat each other on the back?  Why yes it is.  That would explain their “weak and misguided” response!

“I tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you work for them,” Trump told Acosta. “The way you treat Sarah Huckabee [Sanders] is horrible.  And the way you treat other people is horrible. You shouldn’t treat people that way.”

You’re entirely correct Mr. President.

“Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength.” – Edmund Burke

“Ideological differences are no excuse for rudeness.” – Judith S. Martin

“A polite enemy is just as difficult to discredit, as a rude friend is to protect.” – Bryant McGill

If we look back at the eight years of the Obama administration, reporters would never dream of taking the tone with him like they do with you.  In addition, The Obama era press secretaries were Robert Gibbs, Jay Carney and Josh Earnest.  None of them were forced to take the abuse and disrespect that Sarah Sanders has had to endure on a daily basis.

In fact, during the Obama years, the only reporters who ever asked President Obama or his Press Secretary a remotely challenging question were Major Garrett and Ed Henry, of Fox News, and even then the questions were asked in a respectful manner.

The White House intern who attempted to take the microphone from Acosta eventually handed it off to Peter Alexander, of NBC News.  He called Acosta a “diligent reporter who busts his butt,” to which Trump shot back: “Well, I’m not a big fan of yours either, to be honest.”

Nice one Mr. President.

I’m a big fan of yours though!

WINNING!
