Ahhh! The liberal zombies are everywhere!

adead 14

And the liberal zombies aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill zombies.

These liberal zombies can speak, and speak well in some cases!

Yes, they can speak, but they don’t use their brain in any kind of independent thought.

The majority of these liberal zombies just regurgitate what they hear from their liberal zombie leaders and their liberal zombie propaganda disseminators, like the fake news media and college professors across the land.

And there is no reasoning with them.

These liberal zombies are filled with a sense of aloofness and a sense of entitlement…, along with being filled with hate.

adead 12

These liberal zombies have learned their lessons well from their creators.

adead 16

Lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

Lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

Lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

There is no known cure for this zombie liberalism.

azaid 15

We do see random cases, from time to time, however, where a democrat will experience an epiphany, or “an awakening,” when all of the liberal lies and misinformation are just too much to comprehend anymore.

When this happens, we welcome these “born again” individuals back to the ranks of the “free thinkers!”

Back to the ranks of the independent thinkers.

Back to the ranks of the common sense thinkers.

It is truly a great experience, when a person is able to free themselves from the liberal ties that have been binding them!

Many of them share their experience at the #walkaway campaign.

Well, who’d a thunk it?!

After all of the gnashing of teeth…,

After all of the wringing of hands…,

And after all of the whining…,

It seems that The United States was the most prepared to deal with our current pandemic, although you would think our government was and is failing miserably on every level, according to the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news, media.

amostprep 10

Gregg Re of Fox News reports, “US was more prepared for pandemic than any other country, a Johns Hopkins study found.”

amostprep 2

Johns Hopkins University is a private research university in Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 1876.  The university has led the way to revolutionize higher education in the U.S. by integrating teaching and research. Over the course of several decades, the university has led all U.S. universities in annual research and development expenditures. Johns Hopkins is organized into 10 divisions on campuses in Maryland and Washington, D.C., with international centers in Italy and China.

“The United States was ranked the best-prepared country in the world to handle a pandemic in late 2019 by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHCHS) — an assessment seemingly at odds with claims by Democrats that the Trump administration left the country vulnerable to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.”

amostprep 1

“The Global Health Security Index was ‘developed with guidance from an international panel of experts from 13 countries, with research by the Economist Intelligence Unit,’ The Washington Post reported last year. ‘More than 100 researchers spent a year collecting and validating publicly available data.’”

Ok…, let’s deal with the facts, dumocrats!

Let’s listen to the researchers and scientists here, as you are so fond of saying.

Ahhh, the scientists…, the liberal equals of “high priests!”

Let’s listen to the “experts,” they cry!

This is just another example, the latest example, of your false narrative being totally discredited.

We’ve heard you declaring that President Trump had slashed the CDC budget.

We’ve heard you say that important support personnel in the CDC had been “trimmed away” by President Trump.

We’ve heard you say The President has silenced or muffled those on his coronavirus team or in his administration who disagree with him.

False, false, false and FALSE!!!

A thousand times FALSE!

It doesn’t seem to stop the fake news, however.

They just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

The dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media have absolutely no shame.

“President Trump’s campaign has argued in recent days that misinformation may be one of the leading causes of that lack of confidence.”

Actually, I believe the whole perception of a “lack of confidence” in the first place, is a misinformation campaign by the fake news.

Additionally, “Trump’s team has pointed to claims by presidential contender Joe Biden that ‘no one on the National Security Council staff was put in charge’ of pandemic preparedness, based on a report that in May 2018, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton eliminated the NSC’s Office of Global Health Security and Biodefense in a reorganization effort.”

“Rear Adm. R. Timothy Ziemer reportedly was ousted as senior director, and no replacement was named. But, FactCheck.org has determined that the matter amounted to a reorganization, and that ‘some team members [of the NSC pandemic office] were shifted to other groups, and others took over some of [the top official’s] duties.’”

“Separately, the Biden team has repeatedly argued that the president once referred to coronavirus as a ‘hoax.’ That claim has been refuted by numerous fact-checkers, including the Post’s, which found that Trump was clearly referring to Democrats’ efforts to blame him for the pandemic, not the virus itself.”

“Additionally, numerous Democrats, including Biden, have falsely claimed that the president cut the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) budget. The Associated Press has noted that those claims ‘distort’ the facts.”

“Instead, financing has [actually] increased.”

amostprep 9

“Some public health experts say a bigger concern than White House budgets is the steady erosion of a CDC grant program for state and local public health emergency preparedness — the front lines in detecting and battling new disease. But that decline was set in motion by a congressional budget measure that predates Trump.”

“Nevertheless, misleading reports about the Trump campaign’s pandemic response efforts have continued to spread.”

Like I said, the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

It’s actually hard to keep up with all of their lies and misinformation.

That’s all a part of their strategy I imagine.

“A recent report by Reuters that the U.S. had recently terminated a CDC position in China was widely cited by Democrats and reporters as evidence of a lack of preparedness, and formed the basis for a reporter’s question at a recent White House coronavirus briefing.”

amostprep 3

“But, the article itself made clear that experts didn’t think the move had anything to do with the spread of coronavirus in the United States.”

And yet, the “reporter” just parrots the question, like the pathetic liberal “tool” she is.

So sad and so disingenuous.

amostprep 14

I’m not sure how President Trump is able to put up with their crap on a daily basis, to tell you the truth.

President Trump is an amazing man, and I thank God every day that he is willing and able to battle all of these anti-America forces in our own country and around the world.

GOP slammed by Nobel-Winning Economist, Paul Krugman.

How this guy has any credibility left, or a job for that matter, is beyond me.

adeficit 7

I used to think “Nobel-Winning” actually meant something until Barack Obama and this guy won one.

adeficit 5

“This guy” being “Economist” Paul Krugman…, and I use the term “economist” VERY loosely.

Krugman hasn’t been remotely close to being right about anything he’s said regarding the economy in like forever.

adeficit 3

That’s probably because he’s more interested in spreading desired liberal propaganda economic narratives rather than actually analyzing our real economy.

Lee Moran, of the ever disgusting HuffPost, reports that, “Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman blasted the GOP [The Grand Old Party, or Republicans] for ‘the most cynical policy reversal of modern times,’ and warned their bold duplicity may help President Donald Trump secure a second term in office.”

Oh…, I can’t wait…, this should be interesting!

adeficit 6

“Fake Newsers” are always more than happy to regurgitate other fake news propaganda…, no matter how hypocritical or idiotic it is.

“In his latest column for The New York Times [Guaranteeing the fakeness of it!], Krugman called out the ‘broader pattern of breathtaking fiscal hypocrisy, in which the G.O.P. went from insisting that federal debt posed an existential threat under Obama to complete indifference to budget deficits under Trump.’”

‘“This 180-degree turn is, as far as I can tell, the most cynical policy reversal of modern times,’ he argued.”

How dare anyone in politics change their mind, right Paul?!

“Krugman predicted ‘this cynicism may win Trump the election’ because ‘what’s driving the U.S. economy now is the very deficit spending Republicans pretended to be horrified by during the Obama years.’”

Ok…, wait…, this is too good!

What Mr. Krugman is saying is President Trump may win re-election because he and the republicans have changed their position on the federal deficit, and they have now chosen to ignore it like the democrats have been doing!

That’s beautiful.

adeficit 2

It’s not fair!  You can’t be irresponsible about the federal deficit…, that’s our job!

In all fairness to President Trump, he didn’t run particularly on reducing the federal deficit, and he never pretended to be overly concerned about it.

And those fiscally conservative republicans are still out there…, they’re just not putting up much of a fight right now.

Being responsible with the nation’s money is just not a winning argument these days.

So, like they say…, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do,” and “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

Being responsible sucks!

Chaaaaarge it!

The Washington Post’s hypocrisy knows no bounds!

Allow me to drag this hypocrisy out into the sunlight to die!

acontempt 3

The Washington post says, “The right-wing media’s contempt for the truth has never been more dangerous.”

This is according to a recent article in the said Washington Post.

acontempt 1

Excuse me, but who’s contempt of what?

The problem here is, The Washington Post and the rest of the corrupt fake news media have redefined “the truth” as their liberal propaganda narrative.

acnncon 10

What they are really saying is, “The right-wing media’s contempt for our liberal propaganda has never been more dangerous to us retaining any semblance of influence!”

The motto for the Washington Post is, “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

acontempt 2

Well, the Washington Post sure is throwing a whole lot of shade at our democracy right now!

It seems like The Washington Post would prefer if our current democracy did die, and was replaced by some sort of democratic socialism that would have the government elitists living in the lap of luxury, privilege and power, while the rest of us would be forced to fight for the scraps.

acontempt 9

I’m not sure who’s controlling The Washington Post exactly, but I do know they have an anti-American, an anti-conservative, an anti-freedom, an anti-capitalism and an anti-Christian agenda…, and they’re not fooling anybody anymore.

Thanks CNN!  Thanks MSNBC!  Thanks Fake news!

Yes…, thanks CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR and all the rest of the liberal propaganda media.

acnncon 10

And let’s not forget about the democrats.

acnncon 8

Thank you for all of your misinformation and disingenuous hyping of the whole coronavirus situation.

acnncon 1

The world and the United States has faced many infectious diseases before, and we face the common flu every year, but we have never seen this level of outright hysteria demonstrated before.

“The annual flu” routinely kills hundreds and hundreds of times the people that the coronavirus has, and will, kill, and we already have a vaccine for it as well!

Where has the hysteria been about that?

Where have the quarantines been about that?

Where have the school and business closings been about that?

Why are tens of thousands of deaths acceptable every year from one virus, but these thousands of deaths are not from another virus?

acnncon 3

Thanks to the fake news’ eagerness to hang any bit of bad news on President Trump, they have now established a precedent that is going to make everyone’s life a living hell every year or every other year at least.

acnncon 2

acnncon 4

The threat of getting sick is now going to be dictating how we live our lives.

How are all of the politicians going to have to respond in the future to any disease floating around out there?

Are we going to have case counts and death counts for the flu every year now as well?

I hope not…, because those numbers would really be scary…, not like these wimpy coronavirus numbers.

Is it ever going to be “safe” again to gather together in large numbers?

Has the era of going to the movies, concerts, and sporting events come to an end?

Are we doomed to watch everything from remotely from the safety of our homes now?

Think about it.

I’m afraid the world has let the fake news media talk it into believing that our governments can, and should, protect us from anything and everything, including diseases and acts of nature.

Our lives are NEVER going to be the same now.

Yes…, thanks CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR and all the rest of the liberal propaganda media.

acnncon 6

acnncon 7

And let’s not forget about the democrats.

acnncon 9

Your desire to control us has lowered our quality of life…, forever, which I know you’re not really concerned about, but your actions have ended up lowering the quality of your own lives as well.  This, I know, had not been considered before you (the fake news media and the democrats) decided to go down this path.

acnncon 5

Thanks fake news media.

Thanks democrats.

I hope you’re will to accept the credit for this, which you have definitely earned.

Is our response to the coronavirus unrealistic?

I see that this event is getting cancelled, and that school is closing down, and these games are being suspended, and any plans that involve interactions with people are being changed.

We’re wearing masks, washing our hands 20 times a day, and consuming hand sanitizer like never before.

Is it all really necessary?

Are these new “health” practices going to end up being more harmful than helpful?

I mean, the regular old annual flu is way more dangerous than the coronavirus is.

acorona3 1

Are we setting a precedent now where we’re going to implement all of these travel bans and event cancellations and school closures every new flu season?

acorona3 4

acorona3 5

acorona3 6

How can we not now?

How can we pretend one is more dangerous than the other?

How can we put all of these restrictions in place to avoid one virus but not another?

Does that make any sense?

Why have we been willing to just go about our normal everyday lives with the flu virus lurking out there, behind every cough, every sneeze, every handshake, and all of our everyday interactions?

Why is risking getting the flu any less risky than getting the coronavirus?

acorona3 2

Why were we one day completely okay with the potential of catching the flu and the next day completely freaking out over the possibility of catching something that’s not even as bad?

Oh…, and just a reminder…, during the 2018-2019 flu season [November thru April, or about six months], 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died.”

And that’s only in the U.S.

The seasonal flu kills between 291,000 and 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to estimates.

Again…, it doesn’t make any sense.

Worldwide 4,756 people have died due to the coronavirus as of today.

But making sense is not the strong suit of the democrats or their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

It is not a requirement either.

acorona3 7

In fact, a situation like this is a perfect one for the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

Why?

Because it’s a situation that The President can’t win.

Have we been able to eliminate the flu?

No.

Will we be able to eliminate the coronavirus?

Probably not.

And certainly not anytime soon.

And as long as the coronavirus hangs around, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media can stand back, whip up the hysteria, and take pot shots at him.

acorona3 3

Boy…, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media friends are sure desperate to gain political control over this country again, aren’t they?

They are just hell-bent on destroying this country and our way of life.

That’s exactly why we have to stand strong and make sure they don’t get the chance.

At some point, people will get tired of living in fear and living in a bubble, and they’ll say screw it, just like they had been doing, and they’ll go back to living their lives again, and maybe they’ll get the flu along the way.

Lies, lies, lies…, all we get are lies from the democrats!

Politics and lying go hand-in-hand…, but the democrats have taken their lying to a whole new level!

aliars 10

They all seem to just lie at the drop of a hat now, and without any fear of reprisal.

They actually seem to be living in an alternative reality.

aliars 1

It’s really quite insane.

You want some examples?

Ok…, here you go.

Regarding her tearing up President Trump’s State of the Union Address, Nancy Pelosi recently said, “I tore up a manifesto of mistruths,” at her weekly press briefing.

aliars 13

Her statement, of course, was not questioned at all by the fake news media there.

Had I been in the audience, I would have attempted to ask, “A manifesto of mistruths?  What exactly in The President’s speech would you classify as a “mistruth,” Speaker Pelosi?

Wouldn’t that seem to be reasonable and appropriate question?

And I never even went to journalism school!

The fact is there were NO mistruths in his speech (please feel free to point anything you feel is a “mistruth” to me, although multiple instances should be required since she is referring to “mistruths” with an “s”)…, but Mrs. Pelosi is allowed to recklessly characterize his speech this way without any attempt to force her to justify or back-up her claim.

aliars 11

Then we have Representative Adam Schiff.

aliars 7

aliars 2

Mr. Schiff has lied continually, over the last three years, regarding “Russian collusion” and the Mueller Report, and then during the impeachment hoax “hearings.”

Adam Schiff repeatedly claimed he had in his possession, “ample evidence of collusion in plain sight,” of President Trump’s collusion with Russia.

aliars 8

“The obstruction of justice, in particular in this case, is far worse than anything that Richard Nixon did,” Schiff said, adding, “I would say in every way this is more significant than Watergate.”

I guess Robert Mueller did not quite agree with you, Mr. Schiff.

aliars 21

I’m sure Robert Mueller and his team of “witch hunters” would have been more than happy to charge The President with ANY wrong doing IF they could have found ANY…, after over two years of investigation and spending thirty plus million dollars.

Then during the sham Congressional impeachment “hearings,” Adam Schiff totally misrepresented President Trump by reading supposed excerpts from The President’s call with the president of Ukraine.

The only problem was President Trump then released the actual transcript of the call, showing Adam Schiff to be completely lying about what The President said.

aliars 25

aliars 3

aliars 5

Schiff routinely accused The President of treason, bribery and extortion, as if they were common knowledge…, but these allegations quickly evaporated and were replaced with innocuous claims of “abuse of power” and “obstruction of Congress.”

aliars 16

aliars 14

And during the trial in the Senate, Adam Schiff continuously misrepresented matters of opinion as matters of fact without blinking an eye.

Again, as in the case with Nancy Pelosi, none of Schiff’s claims are questioned at all by the fake news media.

These are just a couple examples from the parade of liberal liars.

Let’s not forget about Chuck Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Comey, Clapper, Brennan, the Clintons, Obama, Biden, Lynch, Rice, and on and on and on.

Liar, liars and more liars.  And this is only a short list.  A very short list!

aliars 19

aliars 22

With political “watchdogs” like the fake news media, it’s like hiring a fox to guard the hen house or a wolf to protect the sheep!

aliars 18

aliars 17

aliars 6

It’s a good thing that most Americans don’t consider themselves to be “sheep,” and don’t depend on the fake news media for their news or even expect a fair shake from the liberal propaganda fake news.

Winning!

President Trump is toooo funny, and right on point…, again!

Ronn Blitzer of Fox News reported that, “President Trump retweeted a ‘photo-shopped’ image depicting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in Muslim headwear with a backdrop of the Iranian flag, in the midst of a Monday morning Twitter spree where he shared a number of posts accusing Democratic leadership of supporting the Iranian government.”

ademsiran 2

I don’t really think President Trump’s tweets should be characterized as “accusations,” but rather as restatements of actual events.

“The president’s political opponents have blasted him for ordering the drone strike against Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who has been linked to numerous attacks on American forces and more. Meanwhile, they largely have remained silent as the Iranian people have staged massive protests against their leaders, in the wake of the government shooting down a passenger plane and initially denying it.”

‘“The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue,’ said the original tweet from user @D0wn_Under.”

ademsiran 1

“Trump later summed up his views on the matter, stating, ‘The Democrats and the Fake News are trying to make terrorist Soleimani into a wonderful guy, only because I did what should have been done for 20 years.’”

“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members. You’re not hearing China. You’re not hearing Russia,” Former US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley said.

“The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.”

EXACTLY!

How true and how pathetic.

Well…, you could add the fake news media and your usual collection of Hollywood elites to the mourning mix as well.

But, we, of course, are forced to endure our dose of propagandistic mis-information administered to counter the truth.  “This kind of statement is ridiculous, inflammatory and dangerous. Rather than inform viewers, Ambassador Haley wants to divide Americans,’ said former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile.

On the contrary, Ms. Brazile…, it is your statement which is “ridiculous” and divisive…, not ambassador Haley’s.

Tony Shaffer for the RealClear Politics website added, “As someone who went toe-to-toe with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in Afghanistan, I can assure you that Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani got exactly what he deserved when he perished in a U.S. drone strike. What he certainly doesn’t deserve is praise from Democrat lawmakers who would rather mourn a war criminal than credit President Trump for making the world safer.”

ademsiran 9

ademsiran 7

“As the leader of the IRGC’s Quds Force, [“Quds Force” is Iran’s unconventional arm that operates outside of the Iran’s borders] which has been designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, Soleimani was among America’s most vociferous and aggressive foes. He was personally responsible for the deaths of thousands, including the killing and maiming of hundreds of American soldiers. He was an evil, remorseless man, and his death is a positive development for the entire world — including his own country.”

“Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, however, is currently considering a resolution that labels the strike that killed Soleimani ‘provocative and disproportionate.’”

ademsiran 12

ademsiran 11

ademsiran 8

“Disproportionate?”

How many more American soldiers would have to die to make this a proportionate action in your eyes, Nancy?

Another fifty?

Another hundred?

“Predictably, the Democrats have been stoking fears about Iran’s potential response ever since they’ve learned about Soleimani’s death, pretending that the strike jeopardized U.S. security rather than enhanced it. It seems no liberal lawmaker is immune to the lure of political opportunism in the midst of a presidential election campaign.”

ademsiran 6

We’re not supposed to send a drone strike…, we’re supposed to send pallets of cash to those that regularly chant “death to America,” ala Obama and Biden, and hope for the best.  That’s the preferred democrat strategy for dealing with Iran.

ademsiran 10

“But while the Democrats join our enemies in mourning Soleimani’s demise, those with knowledge of Soleimani’s terror campaigns are celebrating the death of a genuine war criminal.”

“This man was a terrorist in charge of an IRGC element that had been declared a terrorist organization. He was traveling, in violation of U.N. sanctions, to Iraq, with the apparent intent of inflicting harm on U.S. service members in the region. He was in a combat zone as a combatant in uniform — the legal basis to target him could not have been clearer, and the same goes for the moral justification.”

“The Democrats are politicizing this issue the way they’ve politicized every other issue since President Trump took office. They don’t even seem to care that they have to take the side of America’s enemies in order to criticize Donald Trump.”

Well said…, but who is taking the side of whom exactly?

Hmmm?

President Trump is absolutely right…, AGAIN!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “[President] Trump says America would be better off without the ‘CNNs of the world’ after fiery news conference.”

“President Trump ended Wednesday’s White House joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö by taking a shot at CNN.”

‘“The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation,’ Trump said.”

anocnn 9

anocnn 10

Can anyone possibly argue the validity of that statement?

Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of that statement?

It is now commonly acknowledged that our “press” has a definite liberal bias.

It has also become apparent, particularly within the last five to ten years, that the “press” has gone beyond being bias to promoting the liberal narrative of the moment.

anocnn 2

anocnn 3

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press….”

The founders of our country saw “the press” as an important component towards a healthy government and a healthy democracy.

According to Eugene Volokh and Gary T. Schwartz, Professor of Law at the UCLA School of Law, for the Heritage.org website, “

This writing by the First Continental Congress in 1774, says, “The last right we shall mention regards the freedom of the press. The importance of this consists, besides the advancement of truth, science, morality, and arts in general, in its diffusion of liberal sentiments on the administration of Government, its ready communication of thoughts between subjects, and its consequential promotion of union among them, whereby oppressive officers are shamed or intimidated into more honorable and just modes of conducting affairs.”

So what are reasonable or accepted journalistic standards?

While various codes may have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability, as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.

“…public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.”

It is not “the job” of “the press” to be oppositional or propositional.

So, again I ask, can anyone possibly argue the validity of President Trump’s statement?  Can anyone possibly argue the correctness of President Trump’s statement?

Apparently it is “the press” itself who is ready to argue The President’s point.

Again, President Trump commented “The United States is a great democracy… and if the press were straight and honest, and forthright and tough, we would be a far greater nation.”

No sooner had the words left President Trump’s mouth, a male voice from somewhere in the room shouted, “We are, Mr. President!”

“A source inside the room told Fox News the person who shouted was CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta.”

“Trump’s retort? ‘We would be far greater when we don’t have the CNNs of the world, who are corrupt people.’”

“Trump then thanked the attendees and walked off.”

“CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

And don’t hold your breath waiting either.

In this instance, it is safe to use Jim Acosta as an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

Instead of recording and reporting, we have Jim Acosta choosing to interject himself into the story.

Again…, Acosta is an example of how not to behave if you aspire to be a credible journalist.

It also seems that CNN played right along…, demonstrating exactly what The President was referring to…, and making his point for him.

WINNING!
