Just wondering, are we REALLY that mad about presidents who say these things?
It depends on the letter after their name, apparently.
Most of these countries are the way they are because of our ill advised, poorly thought out and poorly executed plans to ‘help’ them. I’m.fairly certain they don’t want that kind of ‘help from us anymore and haven’t had a very high opinion of the US since we destroyed their nations decades ago with our ‘world influence’.
LOL!!! Great find……
Hawaii has the all attention now
wow , the swamp is full of reptiles
Somebody should have attached a breathalyzer to his mic.
excellent , give a citizen with interest her vacated seat
these people are entertainers . Crazy entertainers , but what arrogance these peeps have . They really think they are more than they really are . delusional
get a real job !
LOL!!! You go Robin!!
hey Dottie , sounds like Becky and you enjoyed your visit
I love how some buffoon in a Democratic controlled state presses the wrong button, scares the living daylights out of millions of people, and somehow it’s Trump’s fault.
It boggles the mind how absolutely out of touch the left has become.
The media has them so ginned up to get rid of Trump they’ll say and do anything to. Further that agenda.
I get upset at the hate that thinks it is love . It scares me when I see it in people I care about .
Well , g’nite on this saturday in january . Hoping health is on the way for people who have that concern . I pray . For anyone with heartbreak for any reason , God with you , draw you close and tell you the truth about love that never fails .
Sleep well in grace , in the faith that saves and is here for all of us
Seems as if some of the people prefer “butt kissers & liars ” over honor and truth.
PORN STAR AUGUST AMES REVEALED PAST SEXUAL ABUSE, MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES BEFORE HANGING DEATH
Nova’s death comes after the December suicide of August Ames at 23. Ames hanged herself after she was called homophobic for not having sex on camera with men who had done gay porn. She also suffered from mental health issues, and said she had been molested as a child.
Adult entertainer Turi Luv (real name Yurizan Beltran), 31, died of a drug overdose the same month. In one of her last Instagram posts, she included a quotation that read: “I hope to arrive to my death, late, in love, and a little drunk.”
this industry connects to slave trade industry . This is not a whats wrong with it put it in the consenting adults compartment .
think about it .
In Eastern Europe an organization I support works to help women in trouble
Canada’s minister of immigration, Ahmed Hussen, himself a former refugee who moved to the country from Somalia when he was 16, said Canada was proud to be a welcoming country but could not welcome everyone. Only about 8 percent of Haitian migrants had received asylum here since the summer, he said, while there is a backlog of about 40,700 cases, according to Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board.
“We don’t want people to illegally enter our border, and doing so is not a free ticket to Canada,” Mr. Hussen said in an interview. “We are saying, ‘You will be apprehended, screened, detained, fingerprinted, and if you can’t establish a genuine claim, you will be denied refugee protection and removed.’ ”
Canadian immigration officials are once again bracing for a possible influx of migrants heading north. On Monday, the Trump administration announced that it would not be renewing temporary protected status for nearly 200,000 Salvadorans, a humanitarian measure that had allowed them to live and work legally in the United States.”
they can talk about themselves with great self assesments of open kindness , until faced with real national problems .
Yes , we already DO allow and help legal immigrants . There has to be controlled immigration .
Stop pretending this is not what its about . Hopefully people are educated enough now on the tactics of USING people to make your vote totals enough to get you a cushy job on taxpayer money
Be like Canada with our Health Care system, but not on immigration, not oil drilling, not hemp….seems like the left are selective in what we should emulate.
Not in the mood for much of anything today.
Elitist ignoring the heartland, aka flyover. Sounds about right.
It worked so well for them in 2016, didn’t it.
I guess that’s the platform for 2018, along with “Haiti is a paradise” and “bonuses and tax decreases are pathetic crumbs”.
something closer to reporting as been on occasion at Politico . It stands out in the swamp of left advocacy of MSM
And more and more are catching on to it. It’s all about money and power for the Democrats, the two go hand-in-hand. A party that’s as corrupt and as out-of-touch as the day is long. Not at all about those that they say they represent. That died a long, long time ago with the Democratic party. Cheap words that get cheaper by the day as their ‘true’ colors emerge.
As many have said who have voted for Trump and will probably do so again, I use to be a Democrat.
Or as others have also said over they years, I didn’t leave the Democratic Party they left me.
Even the African American Communities are coming to the realization as to how they’ve been ‘chumps’ as to what illegal immigration has done to their own economic well being in communities all across the Country. The words aren’t matching up with the reality of it all. And people are noticing. The deplorables, many of them their former constituents, aren’t going to take it to anymore. The ‘rig’ is up in all it’s nakedness.
Resist, resist, resist, the truth, may work for them in their short-circuiting bubbles of self-deceit and make-believe, but the gauntlet they run, runs directly through the Country.
Wait until February when the new tax tiers kick in. It’s going to be an even greater eye opener.
I was thinking yesterday, actually, kiddingly, how they might use the Hawaii false alarm to ‘bash’ Trump. Apparently, Jerzy was right. The New York Times dedicated an Editorial just that. Never let an excuse to bash Trump go to waste. Unfriggin believable.
False Alarm Adds to Real Alarm About Trump’s Nuclear Risk New York Times
“Trump’s nuclear risk?” Nice touch.
Fear, is alive and well with the partisan hacks and the Corrupt Democratic Party.
Obama and Hillary, perfectly ‘acceptable’ to ‘sell off’ off this Country’s assets and it’s National Security to Russia and Iran. Hell, they even quashed a couple of investigations, not to mention giving billions of dollars to Iran in unmarked bills to further Iran’s efforts in promoting terrorism across the World. A Country that has been virtually been guaranteed nuclear capability in a few short years. Thanks, Mr. Obama! Chants of Death to America and Nuclear Missiles and terrorism always go hand-in-hand. But someone pushes the wrong button in a Democratic state like Hawaii? It’s Trump’s fault.
Trump’s Nuclear Risk? I thought it was the right who only fear monger? Well chalked that up to yet another hypocritical Democrat playbook tactic.
Why is liberal California the poverty capital of America?
I don’t know, maybe I should ask my niece and my nephew who both live out there. Two separate families, two separate areas. One in San Francisco, one in San Jose – Both homeless and for sometime now. Drugs certainly playing a role in both cases. Maybe we should legalize it. Wait, they already did.
And they want to give trailers to the homeless. Enable enable enable and then wake up to be the biggest poverty capital in America. Not surprised.
…Durbin said Trump used “hate-filled, vile and racist” language in the meeting, according to the Chicago Tribune…
So, the question ‘specifically’ is: What exactly did he say? Is this just another, what he meant to say? What they translated for him, as they do with everything it seems?
Durbin is a scumbag. He called our troops nazis a few years back.
Anything he says can be discounted as self-serving hate speech.
Interesting comment about Durbin Clown.
The far-left has hated the military for as long as I can remember. In particular, spitting on them when returning back from Vietnam while singing the praises of Obama’s bud Bill Ayers who was out there at the same time bombing police stations, the Pentagon, even the Capitol Building. Ayers, Obama, Durbin all cut from the same mold, a mold that must be broken.
That’s not who we are – THATS’ WHO THEY ARE.
The Political views of Ayers, but you could apply it to any of them.
In an interview published in 1995, Ayers characterized his political beliefs at that time and in the 1960s and 1970s: “I am a radical, Leftist, small ‘c’ communist … [Laughs] Maybe I’m the last communist who is willing to admit it. [Laughs] We have always been small ‘c’ communists in the sense that we were never in the Communist party and never Stalinists. The ethics of communism still appeal to me. I don’t like Lenin as much as the early Marx. I also like Henry David Thoreau, Mother Jones and Jane Addams.
In 1970, The New York Times called Ayers “a national leader” of the Weatherman organization and “one of the chief theoreticians of the Weathermen”. The Weathermen were initially part of the Revolutionary Youth Movement (RYM) within the SDS, splitting from the RYM’s Maoists by claiming there was no time to build a vanguard party and that revolutionary war against the United States government and the capitalist system should begin immediately. Their founding document called for the establishment of a “white fighting force” to be allied with the “Black Liberation Movement” and other “anti-colonial” movements to achieve “the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism.
since when is that swear racist .
Anyway a person who shall not be identified by moi ( hey there posted an article saying folks who swear are a way up in the stratosphere in the smarts dept .. guess that proves it
good afternoon sparkies ! I hope you are all well and will be finding the week ahead a good one in every concern !
so for the state of the U. week from this tuesday , do we think Trump will be Trump .?
I think so . I can tell you that
I could be wrong —President Trump didn’t get to where he is in many ways by running scared.
Yes , that is a good point D. I was just out walking , skidded on the ice ..and I skinned my knee ! , I cant remember the last time I did that. SO odd , but it brings back memories of looking at my sore knee and then getting up and running again … but I will be careful
I just saw Trump taking a few questions at M. Lago and thought how much I would rather have Trump guarding my back than the previous president .
Robin, a skinned knee is “better” than a broken bone, BE CAREFUL.
I slept the afternoon away. Just watched Pres. Trump on a rerun.
As far as Obama was & is concerned, there always was something about him I never could like or trust, still don’t. There is something about some people I just can not like .They cause an uncomfortable feeling within me.
I certainly understand what you mean Dottie . Yeah , I am thankful no bones were broken or even a sprain !
O God , we are worth so much more to you than we understand . The Bible said we are to you as though seeing Jesus himself now .We can rest in that , can’t we ? We will rest in that . Its so needed to know that you are watching over us , planning for us and want us to not worry . Ok . Ok Father , in your care we can rest . I ask for these friends to be safe as your own Lord .
People, the words they hear spoken.
What people think they hear, at the same time and each persons interoperation are often quit different.
Opinions, People thinking THEIR opinions are the right ones, are in fact not always right.
Sounds like the fault finders and “Butchers” are in “FULL BLOOM”.
How long will Pres. Trump be the main target? WHO & WHAT will be next?
this thing with the President reminds me of high school girls petty girl gossip ( I was a loner even then )
” Did you hear what she said to me ! ! ) ” and then go on to twist and paint the situation so far from the truth its a lie
Local story here. Really sickening.
Politics ,listening to some people become more insanely radical because of it.
audio shows trump was right
Send WSJ a tombstone. Another death of journalism has occurred.
Yes Robin, Many years ago but I still remember
School pettiness. These now are suppose to be grown ups . In reality are worse than the petty schoolkids.
Disgusting & sickening.
I ask this question. What are the political parties trying to do to the people and the Country with all this BS?
Distrust, tension and turmoil in the USA.
Another question–Could all this “infighting” be deliberate by certain people to cause Government
The division has been deliberate, and Obama was the master of it. The Democrats are only doing what they’ve always done, divide and conquer. But this time, they might find it’s also a strategy that’s been played for far too long, imperiling not only the Country, but also their own fortunes. Couldn’t happen to a more evil and vile group of people. People who are more at home in the Third World in their thinking and their actions, than they are in their own Country. You can’t move a Country or a people if you constantly declare your undying hate of them in order try to ‘force’ them come to your way of thinking. And I use word ‘thinking’ very generously here when I say it.
Did anyone see this? It’s an 11 minute investment. Let the nut job speak for himself:
Attorney general of California on push to protect DREAMers
Jan. 14, 2018 – 11:26 – Exclusive: Xavier Becerra talks immigration reform on ‘Fox News Sunday.’
All the Democratic talking points, and then some. My favorite? Trump is ‘breaking the law’ in reversing Obama’s EO. Who knew that the President makes the laws in this Country and that they’re irreversible? I guess Congress is obsolete after all.
What’s even sadder, people will believe these type of nut jobs. No President is above law referring to Trump reversing Obama’s EO.
What rule of law?
These people don’t even know the meaning of it as they make shizz up as they go along undermining all of our processes in this Country.
Trump is breaking the law for reversing a lawless act? Huh? Well some on their team will believe. They believe anything the hive tells them.
Interesting interview here with Rand Paul that includes his own personal experience with Haiti, Trump’s supporting role, and a joint effort of a medical mission to Haiti where Paul as an eye doctor helped to restore vision to about 200 Haitians.
Geez, I wonder why you ‘NEVER’ hear about these things?
All of I could think of is what the Clinton’s did in Haiti in trying to ‘enrich’ Hillary’s own brother in giving him the contract of mining precious metals from the ground in Haiti.
An interview I saw the other day with a Haitian man in NYC showed that the Haitians haven’t forgotten about it either. Let’s just say, it wasn’t very glowing what the man had to say about the Clintons.
You ‘NEVER’ hear about that either.
Why would paradise need medical assistance?
Oh and the gold theft by the Clinton’s..disgusting. And the cellphone deal as well with Bill’s buddy don’t forget.
More corruption that got a blind eye.
It could have also been titled, this is what happens when the left attacks you:
I’d sure like to be a fly on the wall all across America. Their actions, clearly show not only the State of the Union, but the state of their own party.
Funny how they’ve been boycotting this Presidency ever since November 8th, 2106. Like this is something new. I guess that’s the platform they’ve chose to run, vote for us, and you’ll get more of the same. Sounds like a winner to me, not. Who wants to support a platform of hate? A hate that’s been promoted and ‘nurtured’ for over 9 years now. Like Van Jones said, the self-proclaimed communist said about it from the get go, you’re scaring even me.
Question ? Has anyone been estranged from a friend or family member over this division in the … world ?
I know on my part I have very very strong opinions , but have prioritized forgiveness and connection over opinion , especially since the media is not a balanced source for our opinions . .
It is a grief to me how there have been losses that may not make it out from under the divide .
It is of course only in part opinion , late term aborts so much horror in those , children in 3rd world countries , race .
I have decided that I will stay in the open with all the feelings in my soul treasured and still look to say what is in me to say , and pray and hope that wisdom will surface and help this country again
Say something . I’m ( NOT ) giving up on you ?
that’s from that song …
sorry that I could not get to you . But its still day . Lets roll
My family tolerates it from other family members. Listening to the abuse, but not responding to it. You can’t reason with the rabid. They’ll only double down on it. And as a result of it, a lot of silence out there that can’t be measured by any standard. It happened in 2016, and it will undoubtedly happen again in the privacy of the voting booth. They create exactly what they oppose. Backlash.
Oops, over this division. Thought you were talking about something else. So many divides, you’ll get sick of them.
My niece stopped talking to her mother because she voted for Trump. She’s yet to realize that my sister changes her personality to align with her boyfriend’s, but she’s her daughter so she’s not had the “luxury” of my perspective all these years.
$3.5 BILLION in crumbs, taxed crumbs mind you, back into our economy. Doesn’t matter what form; savings, spending….it’s good for all of us.
“We are giving it to those folks not just because not only are they hard working, but they don’t participate in our annual bonus which typically are for salary employees,” Fish said during an interview on “Countdown to the Closing Bell” Friday.
Like me and my husband. Hourly employees don’t participate in the bonus process.
On a side note………….some great ball this weekend.
Geez…another one? Doesn’t sound good. Back problems? Probably an overdose.
I wonder if the band will ‘ linger ‘ , or if she will come back as a ‘ zombie ‘
Here you go Lefties, attack away with the same voracity as you do with Trump. The UK couldn’t obviously be more racist in using the same standards you apply to Trump:
British parliament members are demanding to see an annual estimate of how many migrants enter the U.K. illegally — saying public anxiety has increased in part because of perceived governmental indifference.
A new report published by the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee makes more than three dozen different recommendations, including: focus on using actual data to shape immigration policy, enforce existing law around securing the border, give more weight to higher-skilled migrants and affirm that immigration should be a net positive for the economic interests of British citizens…
Mr President, can I ask one favor. Would it be possible for you stay at your office in DC for at least a month once during your term. I mean, hard to see why you needed to return to your Golf Resort since you vacation there ended barely 10 days ago. I mean, for the love of Pete….this is ridiculous
“The role of the free media is to serve the “governed”, not the “government”. My favorte line of “The Post” which Joanne and I saw this weekend. I would recommend the White House schedule a viewing for the whole staff.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo just referred to Trump aide Raj Shah as Raj ‘Whatever-his-name-is”.
Our media is a shithole.
LOL!!!!!! Slam dunk!
Thank you NFL………….some GREAT games to take folks minds of politics this weekend. Looking forward to the Championship games.
Some great bowl games this year as well.
While previous MLK days, the sitting Presidents had done volunteer work. On his first MLK day, Donnie plays golf at his private resort. What an embarrassment of a President.
I guess Obama ‘IS’ living up to his words. The man did said his greatest weakness was his laziness. Don’t see the Community volunteering here that you referred to though. Guess he doesn’t have to ‘put on the show’ anymore, just a few words on twitter, than back at whatever he does. And most of it know what he does and what ‘he does best’ and why he does it – An ‘unprecedented hate’ for his own Country. ‘The first’ in the history of this Country for any President.
Hollywood Life, couldn’t be more appropriate. The viper’s nest of communists.
Meant for the ones below. It deserves it.
So are all those other 99.9% of businesses in this Country that aren’t closed for the Holiday. Hell, even Government is off today. What how they’re celebrating their day off?
Actually I am not suprised President Imbecile spent the day playing golf. Seems to be what he does quite a lot.
But I am guess Presidential Golf Outings are now a plus, since Trump has shellacked Obama and every other President’s vacation and golf time. It is hilarious you see you all who used to whine about Obama golfing, now saying NOTHING when Trump does it.
The Cult of Trump demands concurrence and massive hypocrisy.
Mr. President, golf away.
I just think it is hilarious………….after hearing you all whine about Obama golfing so much…………now it is awesome.
Rationalize away……….in the real world………it is hypocrisy at it’s finest. Goodonya for that.
You’re the hypocrite, being as petty as the Obama haters.
We’re you as outraged when Obama flew to a Vegas fundraiser the day after Benghazi? I’m sure there were a few intelligence briefings on his desk that needed attention.
It’s hilarious that you whine when he is working because he isn’t doing things you want then you whine when he isn’t doing anything.
The lady doth protest too much.
I do not think he is working. But then again, I do not consider insulting other nations, tweeting all morining, and sitting glued to Fox all day to be work………….guess you do.
CLownie………….we disagree. You think the Russian Probe is a hoax and Trump is great. I think The Russian Probe is great, and Trump is a hoax. We be at impasse. I am cool with that.
Please show the class where I’ve ever said Trump is great.
You’re the only one here who would even try to pretend that is reality.
I say It’s better when he isn’t doing something to hurt the people. You want him in DC screwing with people’s lives. Makes one wonder if your tantrump is so much billshit and you’re really a closet Trump supporter.
Spending a couple of hours each week reading the daily parroting of Fox memes, and the rationalizing of the imbecilic think President dipstick says pr tweets daily, provides some much needed humor on some mornings for me. I do appreciate it.
It is fascinating to watch the Cult of Trump…………even on this site. It is fascinating. Will tune in later in the week to check out the latest rationalizations and Trump adoration’s. Seems to be 99% of the post here anymore.
Plus a CRAPLOAD of Fox Links. Fox……………..the ONLY network for Trumpies………..the hive is alive and well.
I see You’ve been taking lessons from Dick Durbin.
Deceivers, communists, azzholes stick together. Birds of a feather stick together don’t you know.
The Golfing meme is precious, I must agree. So much dedication to something that in scheme of things is really so unimportant. You can say that Obama got the same treatment at times, but nothing like the glorious ‘magnification’ of ‘Trump Hate’ times 10 – EXTREME, there must be a better word to describe it. The insane, and the mentally ill certainly comes to mind. The future they say. That’s enough right there for many to vote Trump in for life if they could.
Don’t stumble and fall down when you get off your pedestal.
After a detailed investigation, police have determined that the events described in the original news release did not happen,” Toronto Police said in a statement. “The investigation is concluded.”
they dont actually care if it happened or not . Its the mountain of liar-hole strategy
They could care less about the truth, THE FACTS Robin, that much is a plain as the nose on your face. I agree what I heard the other day, we’re either on the right path over the next 4 years, or we choose communism in the years that follow – There’s in ‘NO’ in between. One or other gets scrubbed from the Country. Neither are going to take it well, one worse than the other. You can figure out who that might be, and what they’re capable of.
I have never heard a liberal progressive say they are opposed to lying to get where they want to go .
Its a part of the plan to fight ‘the man ” they agree lying is good .
One YUGE problem . THEY are the man
One YUGE problem . THEY are the man
Yes, and that’s what makes them ‘SO’ dangerous unlike the 60’s where much of it was ‘unsupported’ and had to be kept in hidden in the the shadows.
No more, it’s in your face day after day after day. Pound, pound, pounding away expecting everyone to submit and surrender to them like some Third World Regime. Control of the Media and deep within the bowels of Government, if this isn’t time of choosing, I don’t know what it is. Surrender just isn’t an option for those who value their freedom and their Country. The ‘Barbarians’ are at the gate.
How faith led Dr. Mebla Beals to overcome hatred and anger
Spirited Debate: Dr. Mebla Beals was one of the Little Rock Nine and in her new book describes how her faith gave her the strength and courage she needed to combat hatred and anger.”
Obama’s stern warning for Trump
By Julian Zelizer, CNN Political Analyst
Obama didn’t say it what he said, but that’s what the title is.
Interesting history lesson though about President’s and their ‘descriptive’ language, the difference he infers is that ‘WE NOW EXPECT IT’ in our Presidents to be PC. The Left, and now, CNN itself has proclaimed it. We control everything you say and do. And don’t you dare forget it.
And it took Rush Limbaugh to report the ‘real’ news. To show the ‘real’ event, the ‘real’ photos. Where art thou CNN, Lefty?
Amid Phony Outrage, the President Honors Dr. King
Jan 12, 2018
RUSH: Now, the other thing that happened today at the White House. Grab sound bites 24 and 25. This was surreal. Set the stage. Yesterday Trump has this meeting with the DACA people. And he tweeted about this. His tweet from this morning at 7 a.m., “The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high-crime areas.”
I think what Trump did by asking that one question — forget the word that he used — the media is just hyping that because they think it’s a way to get rid of him, but he refocused this whole immigration debate and he pulled a bunch of rugs out from under the Democrat Party. Go ask any of these media people, “Would you rather live in Haiti or Norway?” Ask ’em. (interruption) What do you mean that’s not the point?
What do you mean, that’s not the point? The point is, where is it written that the United States is required to import people, things, events, policies that are a burden on the American people or are a burden on our economy? Why is it not written that what we import, what we immigrate, what we do ends up improving us and our country and making it better? Is that not also the point, Mr. Limbaugh? Because, you see, from the Democrat perspective, it isn’t. From the Democrat perspective, the point is, we care about the poor, the downtrodden, the thirsty, and we’re the only ones who do because we have compassion, and therefore we care only about those who can’t help themselves.
They need a permanent underclass that’s gonna always vote for them. But Trump asking that question, which is consistent with what he said the day he announced for the presidency in 2015. He said this so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to me and a group of Republican senators was a big step backward. The wall was not properly funded.
Look, I guarantee you that after this big meeting that was televised earlier this week from the Cabinet Room, all those Democrats and Republicans, I guarantee you, guarantee you, guarantee you the Democrats in that meeting — Steny Hoyer, Dick Durbin, the rest of them, Dianne Feinstein — I guarantee you they thought Trump was softening. They thought Trump was getting ready to make a deal. They thought they had finally beat up on him. They thought he did that whole thing, maybe to answer the Wolff book, but they think he did that from a position of weakness.
They thought Trump had that meeting to present an opportunity to come together with them. They made the most wrong, incorrect assumption they could make. And so what did they present? They presented an immigration deal that has been rejected by — well, it’s been rejected by the American people since it was first offered. They submitted what they would do if they were in power because they assumed Trump had been softened up and weakened. And instead Trump looked at it and said, “Why in the world do you want to bring in all these people from blah, blah?” And they were shocked, and they were stunned.
And all Trump was doing was being consistent. He had not softened up, he had not weakened, and he was not looking for a deal with them to escape problems elsewhere. He held firm on it. There’s no reason to prolong chain migration. There’s no reason to do the visa lottery. You know, we’ve gotta do something about the DREAMers, and there’s a way to deal with that, by the way, that makes perfect sense. But it isn’t the Democrat way.
The Democrat way is take ’em however they are. In fact, the worse shape they’re in, the better, because that’s the more need they’re in. So ever since then, there has been this cacophony of mock anger, mock outrage, mock disbelief from the Drive-By Media. They’re not upset by the use of that word. They’re not offended by it. They’re not the slightest bit surprised. It’s not like they’re innocent little snowflakes and don’t talk like that themselves, because they most assuredly do. They’re among the biggest foul mouths on the planet, folks, liberal Democrats. But they have this image that everything they do is morally perfect and superior and nothing is ever said that’s ever offensive to anyone. It’s all a crock. All this is is another opportunity they think they can use to get rid of the guy.
So in the midst of all of this, it’s time for the 50-year proclamation, anniversary of the proclamation of Martin Luther King Day. And Trump presided over the ceremony. And it was in the White House. And he was surrounded by African-Americans, smiling, beaming African-Americans, thrilled to be there, thrilled to be there and part of this ceremony honoring Dr. King.
Vice President Mike Pence was there standing right behind Trump. He was smiling. There was not one sign, there was not one indication that there was the slightest bit of controversy that had gone on in the last 12 hours or 24. It was surreal. And the media’s in there, and you can hear their shutters snapping on their cameras. And you just know that they’re wanting to shout all kinds of questions, and they’re wanting to embarrass Trump, and they’re wanting to pummel Trump. But they hold back because it’s a ceremony honoring Dr. King.
And what was surreal about it was it was the elephant in the room. Here the Drive-Bys have created this, “Oh, my gosh. Can you believe it? It’s unreal. It’s unpresidential.” All of this over the president’s choice of a word. And a ceremony honoring Dr. King, and there’s Ben Carson and members of the King family, and they’re loving Trump, and they’re honored to be there. And you just know the media’s about to flip its wig. This isn’t supposed to happen. And so here’s Trump. We have two sound bites. A portion of his remarks at the proclamation ceremony.
THE PRESIDENT: Dr. King’s faith and his love for humanity led him and so many other heroes to courageously stand up for civil rights of African-Americans. Through his bravery and sacrifice, Dr. King opened the eyes and lifted the conscience of our nation. He stirred the hearts of our people to recognize the dignity written in every human soul.
RUSH: Stop the tape. Stop the tape. Can you imagine the media? “Dignity! You have the guts, you have the gonads to talk about dignity, you reprobate, you pig!” I can just hear it. I can hear the media’s flipping its wig! Trump’s talking about the dignity and conscience of our people and they’re just about to explode. And Trump continues…
THE PRESIDENT: And we celebrate Dr. King for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God.
RUSH: “Except for those people from those butthole places, right, Mr. President? Except for those people, right?” You just know they’re going nuts, and they did.
REPORTER: Mr. President, will you give an apology for the statement yesterday?
REPORTER: Mr. President, were you (bleep) countries?
REPORTER: Mr. President, (unintelligible) are you a racist?
REPORTER: Mr. President, can you respond to these serious questions about the statement, sir?
REPORTER: Mr. President, are you a racist?
RUSH: “Mr. President! Mr. President! Are you a racist, Mr. President? Do you want to apologize for that word, Mr. President? Mr. President!” Meanwhile, Trump and the assembled honorees — black civil rights leaders, Ben Carson, Mike Pence, members of the King family — they’re hugging each other. They are congratulating each other. Trump signs proclamation while the media’s shouting these questions: surreal. It was a giant disconnect, because the media… I guarantee you, the media was thinking that all of those African-Americans in that meeting should have boycotted and shouldn’t even gone out there.
And if they did go out there they should have refused to participate and they should have said, “Trump you’re a racist and you’re a pig and you’re not gonna bring us into your ceremony and give you any kind of credence!” But that didn’t happen.

Did they seriously expect him to say yes, I’m a racist? My gawd…nothing but a bunch of rabies ridden puppy dogs yapping at the end of their chains.
Sure does look that way…

At that time, most of the press refrained from publishing articles sourced to a dossier that former FBI director James Comey called “salacious and unverified” and which the reliably liberal New York Times refused to touch. Those opinions changed abruptly after Trump won, as the result of what looks increasingly like a coordinated campaign involving outgoing Obama administration officials who leaked carefully chosen bits of classified information to a credulous press corps that had become used to printing handouts from the good guys and was especially eager to #Resist Trump…
