Trump explains the tweets?

So the President is making the case that his tweeting (called excessive and unpresidential by his critics) is nothing more than a way to get around an unfair press that otherwise subtly changes, questions, and editorialize statements or press releases.


Does he have a point?

The press has been nothing short of relentless in their transparent attempts to discredit every statement and every move of this President. It would literally be impossible for a Press Release to be covered by the Press in any objective unfiltered manner. Likewise, every Press Conference will have statements rearranged, disassembled, and reassembled into whatever it is that the Press is trying to portrait. To a large degree, the Press has created this environment where they no longer simply report on what the President or the larger administration is saying. Everything has to come with some personal caveat from whoever is covering it.

Thus, the concept that social media is a manner for the President to talk directly to the American public (without the meddling of a middle man infusing their own take into the situation). When viewed from that direction, it starts to make a little bit of sense.

There was a time when there was a press that simply reported on things. A Press release was reported as a Press release. A statement was just a statement. We had objective reporters as well as opinion journalists, and the roles were very different.  The news would cover what the President stated. The editorial and opinion page would provide analysis. Today, the editorial and opinion comes with the main story. There is literally no more objective news reporting, only opinion journalism that is sometimes disguised as reporting.

Until the Press decides to objectively cover what is being done or stated by the President (which will likely be never), I would expect that he will continue to do his end around on them, and take his case directly to the people.

I would make the case that our founding fathers would view Trump and his tweeting entirely differently than the political class does. In many ways this is how our Democracy is probably designed to work. While the media is free to provide an opinion, there is nothing in our constitution that provides the media with the right to filter out what the public hears from the President. This President has found a manner to communicate directly to the American public. Does anything believe that the founding fathers would see this as a bad thing?

Opium = infantile


Notice that the left gave President Trump "no Honeymoon" and have rioted (Biden's kids arrested and charged for felony rioting) so for them to continue being pissed off is a bonus.


One poster state Biden could have beaten President Trump, how ever Biden does not think so. Over the weekend he said he is not running for President, too afraid of President Trump, Biden like all liberals , snowflakes.

Good lord. This is CNN cherry-picking five people who said the voted for Trump to say they represent all Trump supporter.

And it takes less than a minute into the video to know that's just not the case.

(Here's you first hint. There not one MAGA hat among them.)

When Trump said CNN was fake news he ain't lying.

That video is exhibit A.

CH Ignores the fact, many R's are tired of his tweeting, unlike his rant saying otherwise. Seems to me you are losing your edge on relevancy. Good response though showing that the truth is not what you said.

He really needs to stop with the "fake news"....call it what it is. Lies and propaganda.

Suggest you google Trump voters tired of tweets and you tube same subject......Idiot, there are lots of sources and examples other than you saying it was cherry picked, something you do well Mr .2% Idiot.

Ch actually thinks our founding fathers (and mothers) would not be appalled at Trump?
No, he doesn't really think that.

Trump makes the Obamas seem more and more like the good old days.
True royalty, true class at the White House:

C.H. Truth said...

If Trump's tweeting was as destructive as the left claims it is... then why would they be upset that he keeps doing it? Wouldn't they be better off encouraging him to continue to do so... thus helping their own prospects in future elections?

When you see the left get riled up over the Trump twitter engine, it's because they simply do not like the idea that there is a forum that they cannot control (as much as they would like to).

I think the founding fathers would be appalled with the current state of our free press... which cannot openly and honestly and objectively cover politics anymore.

Whether the founding fathers would appreciate everything Trump states on Twitter is certainly at question. But they would definitely appreciate the forum for which people can get first hand information from the Commander in Chief without having to go through the filter of a very dishonest and dishonorable media.

Oh, I want him to keep on doing what he is doing.

Friends and associates believe Kennedy is seriously considering retirement. In general, the burdens of age and demands at the court weigh in one direction. His deep interest -- and leading role -- in America's constitutional democracy weigh in the other.

The question appears not to be whether Kennedy will retire soon, but when -- at the end of this June, or next?

Trump Abruptly Cuts Short Interview

President Trump cut short an interview on “Face the Nation” after being asked about his unsubstantiated claim that President Obama wiretapped his campaign, saying he was entitled to his own “opinions,” the New York Times reports.

Said Trump: “You don’t have to ask me… I have my own opinions. You can have your own opinions.”

With that, Mr. Trump terminated what had been an otherwise genial interview: “O.K., it’s enough.”

Exchange of the Day

From an interview on Sirius XM airing later today:

PRESIDENT TRUMP: His wife died. They destroyed his wife and she died. He was a swashbuckler, but when his wife died you know he visited her grave everyday? I visited her grave actually because I was in Tennessee.

SALENA ZITO: That’s right, you were in Tennessee.

TRUMP: And it was amazing. The people of Tennessee are amazing people. They love Andrew Jackson. They love Andrew Jackson in Tennessee…

ZITO: He’s a fascinating…

TRUMP: I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart. He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War, he said “There’s no reason for this.” People don’t realize, you know, the Civil War, if you think about it, why? People don’t ask that question, but why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?
______________

Trump likes simple answers, doesn't he? Big hearted Jackson would have prevented the Civil War AND wiped out all those pesky "Indians."

If all Trump does in 8 years is appoint 3 or 4 conservative justices to uphold the Constitution, he'll save our country.

and who would that be???

when asked, chuckles the clown couldn't name one.



Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer couldn’t give MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt a single name when she asked him Friday which Democrats could beat President Trump in 2020.

“Lots of people,” the New York Democrat first responded, prompting Hunt to ask him to provide just “one name.”

“I’m not going to pick a name.”

Hunt then asked Schumer who he thinks “is the leader of the Democratic party.”

“We have a bunch of leaders,” he dodged, yet again. “You know, I certainly am the leader of the Senate, and I try to represent the Democratic Party, but we have a lot of good voices.”

“It’s much too premature to handicap 2020, but I’ll tell you this. If the president continues in the rest of his first two years as he did in his first 100 days, there is a chance we could take back the Senate.”

From what?

From unelected people in robes deciding to legislate from the bench... based on their personal feelings of how things should be.

I would love for there to be a time when the left simply doesn't run everything to court every time they lose at the ballot box. Wouldn't it be nice if the courts forced them to win elections and convince Americans that they are right. Democracy.

This sentence is proof that you have no objectivity. You believe that everything Donald Trump says is true.

You believe that everything isn't true, unless Donald Trump says it is.

Until the Press decides to objectively cover what is being done or stated by the President (which will likely be never), I would expect that he will continue to do his end around on them, and take his case directly to the people.

You have lost it.
