NBC News slammed for Trump 'propaganda' film of Mar-a-Lago that's like something out of North Korea

SARAH K. BURRIS
24 FEB 2019 AT 17:22 ET

MSNBC/NBC spent Sunday showing footage from a western themed party Saturday at Mar-a-Lago hosted by the Trumpettes. Some viewers couldn’t help notice that it was reminiscent of propaganda films done in North Korea.

One comedian and radio host noted that the MSNBC anchor was parroting President Donald Trump’s language about the resort he calls the “winter White House.”




Others noticed the same thing, asking other MSNBC hosts to refrain from the lack of objectivity.

I loved the crowd at that party, too. There must be 5 or 6 brain cells among them.

41. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone

Prostitution is how the trump family made its fortune. grandpa trump ran a bordello in Canada and donald j trump with his so-called pageants and various "modelling agencies" trafficked in the transport of human flesh.

Remember this tweet from the huckabeast? Read the comments wherein hilarity ensued.

The dumb-shit trump had no idea just how badly he'd been humiliated nor did his lie-dispenser until much later.

5. A lot of NBC News and MSNBC is unwatchable

They have lost a lot of respect with me over the last week. Three serious reports of sexual assault by Robert Kraft, R Kelly and Jeffery Ephstein and all they wanted to talk about was a fake assault by a black man. And they had two news hosts on MSNBC targeted by a domestic terrorist (not to mention CNN and members of the Democratic leadership) and they didn't seem to want to cover that much either. If and when they take covering important news seriously instead of infotainment then I will take their news division seriously again.

10. Who were the exact newspersons who did this? The ones I watch would not touch it with a 10 foot pole

I thnk it would be a good idea to address your concerns to NBC and to the shows individually.

But I missed it, because I pretty much only watch Katy Tur, Nicolle Wallace, and Rachel Maddow. That's 3 exceptional anchors, with substantive panels and views.

But fine, if you want to boycott the whole network, be my guest.

18. It's one thing

for a president to visit their private property, a la nixon going to San Clemente or raygun vacationing at his ranch (I leave chimpy's Texas pig farm out of it because that was purchased solely as a prop, shortly before he ran for president). Referring to those retreats as alternate White Houses seems appropriate.

It's quite another for a "president" to hang out at one of their commercial properties, a la dirty donnie, when they are overtly making money off their visits.



Edited to add: that's the gist of the article linked in the original post--that donnie is making $$$$$$$$ off this.

They've taken democracy and equated it with capitalism then made capitalism a game of Monopoly.

39. I Completely Agree

I have always been opposed to the media following Donald Trump and calling Mar-A-Lago the winter White House. I do not have a problem with Mar-A-Lago being a private residence. My problem is that I have always felt calling Mar-A-Lago the winter White House was a way to get Trump out of trouble for wasting taxpayer money to take vacations, which was something he claimed, during the election, he would not do. Calling Mar-A-Lago the winter White House lets Trump off the hook. He gets to pretend he is working when he is actually taking weekends off at taxpayer expense.
