Just say these words every time you think he isn't fit for office.

'President of the United States... Pence.'

The press seems to be 'thin skinned'.


You should have heard how "thin skinned" CNN was today during their panel discussions. There's nothing else going on in the world right now except President Trump "disrespecting the media" and, "weakening America's image in the world".

No MSM outlets taking personal responsibility for picking the fight. They're pathetic. Can't wait for the government to start giving the executives/owners HELL.


It's almost as if Trump intentionally maneuvered them into this position.
-CHECK-
His next move should be interesting.


Yep.. the small-minded thinks his actions are haphazard. But the results prove otherwise. He'll drop the MOAB on the liberal media in time...


I think he's very reactionary. He's impulsive and no I don't think he per plans anything at all. He's like a horse with blinders you sit him on a path and he keeps going forward.

But I will say he enjoys trolling people you can tell when he's doing it its the way he grins when he's doing it.

So where were you when obama was tapping reporters communications. Where wete you from 2009-2017 when the media laped up his every word.

The media is not king in America. If the media does not do a good job, I don't care if it's CNN or ABC or NBC or Fox, then criticism is fair game.

Dear god... the left with their impeachments.

I felt the same with the right with their call for impeachment of Obama.

Extremely unpresidential. Trump spends all his time trolling, enriching himself at our expense and paling around with tyrants and criminals. He is truly unfit for any elected office.

" The press is protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Members of the press are free to criticize the government and even the President, his policies and his actions. "


Unfortunately , the U.S. Constitution does Not Protect it's Citizens from the LIES the " Press " Inflicts on them on a Daily Basis . The Other Side of the Coin is U.S. Citizens have Every Constitutional Right to Criticize a MSM Media that Publishes Deceptive Propaganda Disguised as " News " , Including the President of the United States .

Every citizen enjoys first amendment, including journalists and the POTUS. It is impeachable if the POTUS arrests and kills journalists like what happens in Turkey. That has not happened in America.

Both are true however having said that a president is expected not to be petty, thin-skinned and vindictive it hurts the office.

You can also assume the POTUS will massacre hundreds using an AK-47. Yet.

You do realize that the 1st Amendment also applies to President Trump, right? He likewise has the right to criticize the press, call them every name in the book and question their sanity, too, if he wants.


As a private citizen he can do that. He's not currently a private citizen. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week he is the head of state and head of government. Any word he utters comes from the government.

He still has the same 1st Amendment rights as a citizen as anyone else, regardless of his office. He can be as critical of them and their coverage as he wants to be as long as he's not using the power of the presidency to force them to report news in his favor.


According to the radio story I heard today, Trump was privately demanding an apology, and said he would stop "counter punching" if they gave him one.

That's pretty damn close to forcing the news to report in his favor.

Don't think I'm going too far out the proverbial limb if I presume you've lurked for a while. It's pretty epic when a thread draws folks out from the shadows; too bad it had to have come from the shallow end of the meme pool.

Look around some, you'll find a few folks talking sense.

Welcome and hope to see you in the threads!

I don't. The point of putting people in authority is that they're supposed to be better than you. Better socially, better morality, better work ethic, more polite, better read, smarter, more innovative, and all the rest.

Trump is pandering to the lowest common denominator. He isn't worthy of being in charge. He should be infalible.

I don't know. If the press is lying, and it has been established that they are quite a bit. And Joka are often hitting below the belt in their commentary, then an apology is not reporting anything in Trump's favor. It is an acknowledgement they went too far not that they agree.

I could pop off and call someone here I disagree with mentally unbalanced and accuse them of having small hands (and what it implies ala Trump) and later realize I went too far in my disagreement and apologize, and that would not signal that I suddenly agree with them on things.

Pence is a President I would like. I don't agree with him on much politically, but he has the right temperment and personal ethics to actually deserve being in a position of authority.

The press is supposed to be mean to the President, you don't want the press to have a friendly relationship, it should be antagonistic. If they go too far and start telling lies, then that's what libel and slander laws are for (something Trump said he would like to use against the press). Going on Twitter to rant, or worse, demanding private apologies in order to make the attacks stop is not how to go about things.

The press is supposed to be impartial, not "mean" as in mean-spirited.
