Any man or woman who agrees to work for Trump has no morals, and absolutely no sense of shame. Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and the other members of Trump’s circle of sinners will say anything to save their boss’s a**; and all of it is merely fictitious babble; better known these days as ‘alternative facts.’
On Tuesday, when Sanders went into another attack on the media at the daily press briefing, one reporter refused to sit and take her nonsense.
“News outlets get to go on day after day, cite unnamed sources, use stories without sources … you mentioned the [CNN] story, where they had to have reporters resign,” Sanders said, referring to a story about a member of the Trump administration that CNN retracted over the weekend.
Personally I’m fed up with the Trump’s administration’s efforts to deny all Americans their Constitutional rights. Apparently Brian Karem, who works for the Sentinel, a group of local Washington newspapers, agrees.
“You’re inflaming everyone right here, right now, with those words you used,” he said, pointing out that the administration has also gotten facts wrong in the past.
“Anyone of us, right, are replaceable, and anyone of us, if we don’t get it right, the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read us,” he continued. “You have been elected to serve for four years at least.”
He pointed to the fact that the press is there to ask questions, and it’s her job to answer them.
“And what you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who see once again, the president is right, and everybody out here is fake media,” he continued. “And everybody in this room is only trying to do their job.”
Finally someone refused to accept the bulls**t coming from the Trump administration. Not one of them could find the truth with both hands.
I am the first one to admit that not all news services and none of the major television networks have credibility. But for the most part they attempt to tell the facts and the facts are not acceptable to Trump, his family, or his submissives.
When will our national nightmare end? I can’t wait for four looooong years.
Please re-post; thank you.
