It’s pretty bad when you get called out by your biggest media cheerleader, Fox News, over complete evasion of the story of the day, fully set up by the White House. This really IS Nazi Germany (oops, sorry for breaking Godwin’s Law there… how about “Soviet-Pravda Era,” or old reliable “George Orwellian”… ok?) kind of stuff. On purpose, questions are taken from two guaranteed in-the-tank “reporters.” As a result, of course, President Ignoramus is not put on the spot and made to feel “uncomfortable” and can simply lapse into repeating campaign boasts “my huge electoral college win” in the midst of generic pablum. One American press question from the Daily Caller, and the other from Sinclair Broadcasting. The Daily Caller is Tucker Carlson’s little right wing tattler sheet. Promise not to say anything about Mikey Flynn, The Russian Whisperer? You got it, big guy!
Sinclair Broadcasting is TRULY the definition of FAKE NEWS. (They own ABC 45 in the Triad) Sinclair is the second largest owner of local tv stations in the country… 154 on their way to 165 outlets.
Via Wikipedia: “On December 16, 2016, Jared Kushner, son-in-law of then-President-elect Donald Trump, stated that it had reached deals with Sinclair to give the company extended access to the Trump campaign, in exchange for airing, without further commentary, interviews with the Republican Party candidate on its stations, which Kushner said had a better reach than cable networks such as CNN.”
Trump was, as he always is at these kind of events, bored out of his mind. Read the statement like it was the first time he’d ever seen it. Low Energy Donald. But the stage-managed questions were beyond anything I’ve ever seen. Mr. Trump…. you’re losing FOX NEWS, although your butt boy Hannity is probably preparing a “very special” Hannity Excuse Squad Special: “Why Trump NEVER Needs To Take a Question From Anyone He Don’t Want To.” Oh, Canada.
