Trump accuses media of siding with freshman congresswomen in 'sick partnership'

President Donald Trump on Friday accused the media of siding with Rep. Ilhan Omar and the other freshman progressive congresswomen with whom he has feuded this week, criticizing reporters’ coverage of the "send her back" chant that broke out at his most recent campaign rally.

“It is amazing how the Fake News Media became ‘crazed’ over the chant ‘send her back’ by a packed Arena (a record) crowd in the Great State of North Carolina, but is totally calm & accepting of the most vile and disgusting statements made by the three Radical Left Congresswomen,” the president wrote on Twitter.

“Mainstream Media, which has lost all credibility, has either officially or unofficially become a part of the Radical Left Democrat Party," he continued. "It is a sick partnership, so pathetic to watch!”

Beginning last Sunday, Trump has targeted a quartet of high-profile House Democrats — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — with inflammatory rhetoric, alleging the women of color hate America and should “go back” to their countries of origin.

3. Trump picks and chooses his scapegoats

Fascism requires them after all, as a distraction to rally the masses in order to enable a sinister agenda. However, this is no longer about Omar. It's about the sick pervasive bigotry that Trump spews day-in and day-out. And that particular outrage is not a stand-alone strategy, but rather a means to an end. Get people riled up with fear and hatred and they might overlook the fact that the current health care system is not serving them well, that critical infrastructure needs have not been addressed, that our global alliances are being damaged in order to do the bidding of a dictator who wishes us harm, or that the impacts of climate change are being ignored to the peril of future generations. To name a few. Trump at his core may be an ignorant buffoon, but he has mass manipulation and propaganda down to a science.

5. For once the media picks the right side.

 

Rare these days with so much attention to Trump and his lies. Let's talk more about $15 minimum pay legislation, anti-voter suppression legislation, AG Barr's complicity in obstructing juice and thwarting investigations.

7. WHAT STATEMENTS, President Asshole?

Everything they're being smeared with are distortions by CONSERVATIVE MEDIA.

I still shake my head that he co-opted the Fake News term. It describes their propaganda outlets perfectly.

8. Its the same crap they pulled with Obama

Claiming Rev. Wright made all these "racist" and "anti-American" statements and then could only produce edited excerpts that were completely out of context with what the man was actually saying.

9. The FASCIST FELON in the White House first said he disagreed with...

"send her back"

Then he's not happy with the Real-News media reporting it?

Which is which?

13. For a guy who makes a big deal about Socialists

Why did he marry a woman with a name that is an extension of the Russian Ivan? or marry a woman whose father was an actual Communist? Or name a daughter a popular Socialist name?

14. He's so insecure and jealous

And hates minorities and women so much, especially smart women because he's not that smart , and he knows it. Instead he promotes hate and division, and this is an example of what he'll do to women and minorities if he has the chance. Putting their lives in danger by suggestive threats and false claims , and inciting hate towards them by a sitting president is a national disgrace, and shows how bad the GOP/KGB/kkk/fascist party has now gotten.

15. This - coming from ... the "President???"

Dear lord - it is just horrific. To read, to live through. It seriously sounds like the rantings of a lunatic.

How can everyone not see this? How can the sheep think all of this is okay and normal?

It is the absolute opposite of normal and I'm feeling very very scared. How will all of this end?

17. Trumps Latest Approval Rating Is 48% - An All Time High

As this shows, Trump sucks all of the oxygen out of the room and that is all that matters. All the mainstream rush to cover Trump and only Trump. It doesn't matter the subject - it only matters that there is wall to wall coverage. Trump plays the media like a fiddle and they don't even realize it. Right now Trump is in the drivers seat.
