Your point?

We just got done with 8 years of not being able to call out radical Islam as an enemy too. And there is no doubt it is also an enemy of our country.

My point is that someone who has millions of megatons of nuclear firepower aimed at me is my enemy.

Sure, because using a phrase keeps us safe. Pfft.

You're speaking in rather ludicrous generalities. You don't even know who you are talking about. You have a fiction created for you by the media of what "a Leftist" is ... and you are merely waving that sock puppet around.

No one is anti-American because you say they are or because they believe differently from you.

I would be willing to bet that you had less than complimentary things to say about our past President, so, by your own definition, I guess you are anti-American as well.

Welcome.



Wrong again....I even voted for the last president once.

For many years all I have heard on this forum was how corrupt the MSM is, now it is a different story?


Yeah, now they magically love the MSM. Just like they used to hate it when the Right demonized the commie Russians.

It's topsy turvy world.

Liberals had no problem with it when Obama did it. In fact they applauded it.

Shepard Smith is acting like an hysterical little girl! LOL! What a hater. Some in the media have their little ruffled panties in a wad, and methinks Smith is one of them.

Donald Trump speaks to the American people. He speaks about unifying our country and unifying the world. The media and the Democrat Party are the dividers. They refuse to honor the man We The People elected and are throwing monkey wrenches in everything starting with his cabinet picks. Sickening!


RE: www.msn.com...

All of the Mainstream Media are pointing to (gasp!) a FOX NEWS anchor as validation that President Trump went too far with criticizing the media today. It's too bad the MSM aren't smart enough to come ATS and run a search on "Shepard Smith". If they did, he would NEVER be used as a validator, because he has a history of crazy talk himself.

That being said, FOX NEWS would do themselves a YUGE favor by letting Shepard Smith go to NBC, like they did with Meghan Kelly last month. MSNBC would love to have another idiot.

Shepard Smith is turning into a CNN Fake News type fact-twisting foaming-at-the-mouth Trump-hating liberal.

Any guesses about whether MSNBC or CNN will hire him? He has become their kind of pundit.


Kind of makes the wound up rubber band of a feud between
Megyn and Donald during the campaign propel her little balsa
glider over to another tube another put-up for just the money.

I don't care who hates who.. but if the facts start getting a
back seat to who your boss politically hates, we ALL lose. And
that ain't news anymore. I can't even stretch it into entertainment
either anymore... probably why the tube is off and ATS is more on.

EDIT: strictly to the OP:
I think it would be un-American for a president to give a media
half this dishonest about him a pass.

Trump is officially forked


I agree with this, he is getting frustrated with the media and the intelligence agencies. He calls allegations that he and his administration have ties with Russia "fake news" and I would believe him, but he has lied about everything else pretty much all the time. I think there could be something to the Russian collusions, but right now I admit there is no proof (although there is enough to warrant further investigation).

Meanwhile, IF something was going on with Trump and Russia, this could mean disaster for his presidency. If nothing of interest was going on, he will emerge from this scandal stronger.

Also, I would like to point out that Republicans sure don't like fake news / conspiracy theories when it is directed at one of their own, yet they fully supported pizzagate and other fake news / conspiracy theories that were detrimental to Hillary. They also supported Comey when he stated they had found more of Hillary's e-mails and Wikileaks when it leaked e-mails it had received from Russia.

I didn't watch it but I read the entire transcript from NY times. I look forward to what trump is going to do.
In regard to the op, Who determines what is presedential? Do you mean politically correct?
He got elected when he is probably the least politically correct president ever. In my opinion his lack of pc is a great thing. We need a strong leader like that. And it is my opinion that he is patriotic and presidential. His character is fine.
He's sick of the media's games. It's obvious. He'll give them respect when they give it to him. The media has been dishonest to no end and it's trump duty to put them on check about manipulating everyone with dishonest and targeted media. They don't have to worship him but at least be honest/fair in their reporting and trump will give them respect for their honesty, Whether he's in the right or wrong.

At this point all of the msm is going in on every topic with an anti trump agenda.

he was supposed to use the press conference to announce the new labor secretary and he turned it in to a snowflake fest where he moaned and cried about how unfair flynn was treated. cry me a river trump if it was so unfair why did you let him resign?

the way trump belittles the press is scary, his temperament is deplorable, it's no wonder he attracts the types of supporters that follow him.



The press is far worse than scary...their temperament beyond description...and you are the byproduct.

I'm wondering how a leak can be real but fake news at the same time.


The reporting on the leak so skewed...biased...and largely irrelevant...blown up as if Alien Visitation was occurring live.

That is called "sensationalism", but not "fake". Fake and exaggeration aren't synonyms.

Maybe if the press wasn't such an obvious propaganda machine spewing lies all day we wouldn't be discussing this

I recommend a high level history class....it has opened my eyes to the term presitism, which is the act of applying modern events to events in history. The problem being circumstances were different. For instance, Lincoln sent journalists to jail.
www.presidency.ucsb.edu...
George Washington was not immune either...
www.mountvernon.org...

And best of all, the NY Times tells Obama how to court the press.
100days.blogs.nytimes.com...

In other words, there is a historical precedent of Presidents feuding with the press. It aint un-amereican.

Not if the media is working as a tool of the deep state.. Promoting civil unrest, sprading lies and fake news... The media is always controled and it is a shame. It would be good to have some clear verifiable news.. We have that already its called wikileaks a journalistic organization that has been attacked by government..

MSM is always controlled its the proganda tool.

It is unpresidential to attack the 1st amendment:

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

@realDonaldTrump

[sarcasm, sort of] Although, since the First Amendment reads that "Congress shall make no law..." commrade Trump is free to write an EO abridging freedom of the press.[/sarcasm]

Is freedom of the press not also a 1st amendment right?
