Step 1. Set yourself up as THE authority figure.
Step 2. Set the Media up as "fake" and everything is fake news.
Step 3. When the media reports what you want, praise that outlet as good news source.
Step 4. When the Media says something you dont like, label them Fake news and rail against them, watch followers parrot your line .

You realize my conservative friends, that Trump is doing the same thing we said the left was doing for the last 8 + years? Just in a different way? By controlling the language and trying to control the narrative?

How bout not drinking the kool-aid and actually researching everything instead of just buying whatever Trump says....

You guys are falling for his diatribe hook line and sinker.....

We know for a fact that during his run, Trump would lambaste a news source, call them unfair and liars and fake whenever they reported something he didnt like, and then when they reported something favorable, they were a great organization with great reporting....we KNOW this, weve SEEN it..

Why are so many of you falling for this bullsnip?

Look im skeptical of the media too, all of them, thats why you actually research accusations and dig a little....

You cant say "Dont trust the media look for yourselves" and then in the same breath "Well Trump says this" and not look into what he says...

Im baffled by the cognitive disconnect.....

What do they need to look at? Trump has trolled the same media that has blasted him for a year and a half. They should have thought about the possibilities of him being the president before they ran fake stories about him non stop 24 hours a day.

Make America Great Again!


Any clown that brings out a platter of steaks and fraudulently claims that they were produced by his defunct company deserves to be blasted non-stop.



And it's a damn good thing you are here to do just that, all day, every day, day in, day out, one after the other...on.....and on.....and on..........

Trump is making the fake media news crazy he is driving them insane when they are so close, but so far away and Trumps is playing them like a master puppet.





Substitute "fake media" with "public"...

It was and is Trump's intent to delegitimize ALL reporters for the convenience of his corruption and secrecy.

You can get on board or not.

If the press is there to ask questions on the publics behalf?

Then you are cheering Trump trolling the public he represents.

It is none of the business of reporters to look at those documents


Then why did Trump stack them there for the press conference????

He EXACTLY wanted "reporters to look at those documents"...

he just refused to let them actually READ those documents..

And that sums up Trump in a nutshell..

All Façade...No substance...Flim Flam.

how about just ignoring the stupid # and worry a bit about the real world stuff?

Trump needs his ego stroked and massaged, when people concern themselves with his folders/props and steaks, they are playing into his little hands. (not that his hand size is the issue)

My G-father is 95 years old, staunch republican, still sharp as a tack...doesn't use a cane or walker..retired to FL. Walks the beach daily. He served with Patton.

I talked to him last night and we talked politics. I thought we would laugh a little. I asked if in his lifetime he had ever seen a President like Trump. He didn't laugh. He just sounded sad. Said no, of course. Said he never thought he would ever live to see a President in the Whitehouse so opposite of what he and his friends fought for. I am just hoping now he lives long enough to see Trump leave the WH.

It's not politics, it's not a game, it's not policy...Trump is a shame on all of us.

The press are people we expect to ask questions on our behalf...and thus far his answer is eff-off.

I expect the press to report the accurate news as well.
It doesn't mean that's what they are doing.
Could it be because the questions directed at Trump are bias narrative driven questions?
I have seen the press ask Trump about everything under the sun but give other shall not be named politicians a pass.

The medias 6% approval rating shows just how good of a job they are doing at staying neutral and keeping the population at large informed.

Washington is like Hollywood, full of actors. The president is picked on his/her ability to act and to twist the truth so people will believe them. Hillary was just as good if not better than Trump is, but she still lost because people are not so blind as to the real state of our economy since we have the internet. With trump there was hope that he may actually try to get more companies to stay in America or set up factories here. That is why he won. California is a big importer, there will be some jobs lost there if we start making more stuff here and that sums up why many more in California voted for Hillary. New York also would have been better off with Hillary and continuing deception on the path she would lead us in. So they voted for Hillary. Most other states would do better with Trumponomics

Whether it will work I do not know, it may be too late to restart the economy correctly.

You can't celebrate and promote FAKE NEWS to get your guy elected and then decry every news outlet as fake news.

Trump accused his competitor's father of having helped assassinate Kennedy.

Take the ugly lies somewhere else.

Goebels refered to it as "removing the referee"...

If the facts and reporting work against you...Discredit the news media...

Perhaps your G-father forgot exactly who he was fighting when he made that statement.
Those brave individuals fought the The National Socialist German Workers' Party.
Nazi's were a product of a liberal way of thinking.

How many times must you people be explained this?

No offense but your grandfather seems uninformed of the current political climate in America.
I do appreciate his service just the same...

Everyone does worse with Trumponomics...not saying Hillary was a solution, she wasn't...but what Trump has in mind leads to crash..and every proposal from an economics stand point hurts the people that voted for him.

WTF do you think rural America will be paying at Wallmart once China is POed?

He lied and manipulated people who can't afford to be screwed over.

And no...California will be just fine. The tech sector thrives regardless..

You still haven't figured out that I am pissed because he screwed over the Rural Americans who voted for him...Not because the average Liberal in CA won't weather the storm just fine.

As props for one of his press conferences he included "vac'd steaks" but his people forgot to trim the distributor label off the plastic..

They weren't even "Trump Steaks"..

Reporters and their fake media channels and employers did that for them already, you know, it I know it and everybody else knows it too, but is better to ignore the facts.

The media now deserve everything they are getting.

actually you need to learn your history, Nazi germany was far far far Right.....its a fact as much as conservatives like myself dont like it.......

Also to note, im sure hes a bit sad because he sees Americans making the same mistake with Trump that they did with Hitler....

They wanted a strong man to "Just make it stop, fix it, SOMEONE DO SOMETHING" and hey got him....

Now im sure he sees a president with horrible Narcissistic tendencies, lies through his teeth, bullys people , shuts down news agencies to question him (we hated it when Obama did it, nowits fine) and even has his own pet news agency Breitbart, with one of its EXECUTIVES, in his OWN DAMN CABINET.....

Talk about uninformed, you should probably pull your head out of the sand.....you have a lot of gal calling someone who fought against these ideas in Germany, uninformed.......he saw it first hand while you were DOZING off in History class

Which ones???

The reporters Trump cited when he said Ted Cruz's father assassinated Kenenedy?

I don't mind the right wing examining BS...But if the plan is to spread and champion BS to get a moron elected...and then cite that same BS as a premise to call legitimate reporting fake?

Take that nonsense to some third world country...

DENY IGNORANCE...Folks can vet their news and have been doing so well on ATS for years..

Eff folks who tell people that THE NEWS itself is not to be trusted.

that is what every dictators and fascist has sold from the beginning of time.

That's OK...The far, far left can own communist Russia, the killing fields of the Khmer Rouge and a bunch of other crap.

As much as Liberals like myself don't like it..

Honesty matters...

His system won't effect the people negatively nearly as much as you assume it will. There will still be imports from China but he will add an import tax to some to make it so American made products can compete. I researched the price that the businesses pay for Chinese goods, there is a huge markup on them by the importers most times. These importers are getting rich. I was going to start a business selling tools made in Taiwan, I could have jacked up the price over double of my cost and sold them a lot cheaper than most people selling the exact same product were selling it for.

Our government should actually put a sales tax on all internet sales to make it so brick and mortar stores can do better at a local level. I am all for small town businesses, but they can't make it because of big internet sales companies. Most people can't comprehend that internet sales prices are higher than local stores many times.
