Well, the idiot news media has apparently driven President Trump to his absolute breaking point, and we can’t say we don’t get it. They have been abominable since his inauguration (and, let’s face it, well before then) but they really went to another level this week. The moment his press conference with Vladimir Putin was over, the media pounced, declaring him everything from a Russian puppet to a spy to a traitor to the United States and all that it stands for.
Now, after taking the high road for a couple of days, Trump has had it. He unloaded on the press in a tweet storm on Thursday, warning Americans that the only explanation for the media’s unhinged behavior was their desire to see the U.S. go to war with Russia.
“The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that I’ll probably have a good relationship with Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!” Trump wrote.
In another tweet, Trump wrote: “The Fake News Media is going crazy! They make up stories without any backup, sources or proof. Many of the stories written about me, and the good people surrounding me, are total fiction. Problem is, when you complain you just give them more publicity. But I’ll complain anyway!”
What’s really been interesting about this whole thing is that there was some legitimate room for the press and the Democrats to criticize Trump for what he said in Helsinki. Trump did not appear strong in front of the Russian president and his posture and words were not in sync with the strong, confident leader we saw only a few days earlier in Brussels.
But they went WAY overboard, like they always, always do, thus losing any point they might have had in a sea of hyperbole and outright insanity. Like really, Adam Schiff wants to subpoena the translator and bring her before Congress? That is nuts, plain and simple.
But then, they had no other choice, did they? No, because they’ve spent the last YEAR AND A HALF telling us that Trump is a Russian traitor, so they knew they had to go over the top of that to make their Helsinki criticism stick. That’s how we get to the point where even former CIA directors are saying Trump is guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors” because he said some nice things about Putin on a stage in front of reporters. The left has left themselves no room for rational criticism because they started this presidency at Outrage Level 10.
We don’t know whether the media really wants a war with Russia or not, but they definitely want to nail this president by any means necessary. Too bad for them that even if he were to do something truly impeachable at this point, they’ve already numbed the public to the point where the reaction will be a collective shrug.
