President Donald Trump during a press conference scolded the media every chance he got. Going into the press conference the media was ready to slam the President over the scandal that developed throughout the week. What the media ended up with was a President that wasn’t going to take what he felt was abuse from the press.
To be fair the press did correct Trump when he made claims about the margin of his win by electoral college votes. The press gave correct facts that proved President Trump was incorrect. But that was about all the press got outta the President.
After the press conference, the media retreated to their networks and were acting like children being exposed to the world for the first time after having ‘helicopter parents.” They were furious that the President would question the legitimacy of their reporting. Jake Tapper of CNN was just in total disgusts with President Trump stating that the media is not the problem President Trump is. Secondly, Tapper suggests that Trump is mentally unfit to be President saying he was “unhinged”. Thirdly, (and I agree) Tapper said the President needs to stop telling us you won the Presidency “you won” now move on. If you would like to watch the video below and see Tapper’s temper tantrum it is below:
Shepard Smith of Fox News was next to absolutely lose his mind and has taken a lot of heat from Trump supporters on Twitter. During his commentary Shepard stated:
“It’s crazy what we’re watching every day. It’s absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question. Really? Your opposition was hacked and the Russians were responsible for it and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening and we’re fools for asking the questions? No sir.”
“We have a right to know,” Smith added. “You call us fake news and put us down like children for asking questions on behalf of the American people.”
Jimmy Fallon just couldn’t help himself and did his own parody of the new conference and you can watch it here, it is pretty funny.
The press was looking to give President Trump a beating yesterday and they got the exact opposite. Over the past 12 years, the media has had its way. President Bush was an awful speaker and never confronted the press, and during Obama’s tenure, the media protected him; now they have their handsful. If you are a Trump support yesterday was payback for the news cycle this week. If you’re a Democrat you are absolutely furious or even scared. Over time, this will simmer down the press will have better facts and when that happens President Trump better be ready.
