Trump has stated that the press is not the enemy of the people. He said fake news is the enemy of the people. Trump has maintained this stance and repeats it when the media lies about him or produces fake news. The media, only all too happy to prove him right, has taken the phrase “enemy of the people” very personally. Media outlets have continuously charged that Trump was calling all news the enemy of the people. I suppose that’s their mea culpa.
Trump’s charge that the media is biased stems from their coverage of the Russian collusion fake story. While Trump has never been the target of a Russian collusion investigation, and while Hillary Clinton is the candidate who demonstrably colluded with Russia, you can ask any friend on the left and they will tell you Trump colluded with Russia. It’s a fake narrative created by the media. Trump has good reason to criticize the media for bias.
The media isn’t helping themselves. On Friday, Marjorie Pritchard of the Boston Globe called on media outlets throughout the country to write coordinated editorial attacks against Trump. 70 media outlets have agreed to the coordinated attack on Trump to prove they aren’t biased.
The US Navy is back in the South China sea to enforce sanctions against North Korea. North Korea has taken some symbolic steps towards peace and the end to their nuclear program, but continues to develop ballistic missiles. The Trump administration had stated that sanctions would remain in place until Kim completely and verifiably eliminates their weapons of mass destruction program.
Republicans and Conservatives are taking full advantage of the Ocasio-Cortez gaff machine. And we are enjoying every bit of it.
