ABC: Trump Looked ‘Smaller’ & ‘More
Insecure’ at ‘Bizarre’ Presser

NewsBusters, by Kyle Drennen

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/17/2017 10:18:31 AM

During ABC News special report coverage following President Trump’s press conference on Thursday, anchor George Stephanopoulos seemed to be in a state of shock over the commander-in-chief’s hostility to the liberal media: “What a remarkable window into the state of mind of the President of the United States right there....lashed out at the press, made it very clear he thinks the press is dishonest....never seen anything like that.” Special correspondent Matthew Dowd agreed: “No, that was the most amazing press conference by a president I have ever seen and I´ve been watching it since the mid-70s. And I don´t mean

Get used to it Georgie Porgie. If you weren´t such dishonest lying crapweasels, Trump wouldn´t have to call you out. Look inward for the reasons this happened and quit blaming it on Trump. The public knows the truth, wake the hell up.

". . . made it very clear he thinks the press is dishonest....never seen anything like that."

The media are dishonest, George. And when they´re not being outright dishonest, they seem to feel compelled to be egregiously misleading.

How DARE anybody fight back when the high and mighty media are spinning their narrative over current events! Everybody´s supposed to hold still and admire the grand fiction they spin. After all, they have our best interests in mind, right? Right? Hello?

I guess net connections are spotty in Oz...

Chris Wallace is having a bit of a testy morning sniping at President Trump from Morning Fox News; Wallace is too much of a weasel to stand up to O´Reilly last night and backtracked as soon as O´Reilly challenged him on statements regarding President Trump and his administration. Wallace has always been in the liberal bag, but he is outing himself big-time as The Donald would say.

I happened to be in a public place yesterday during the presser ( had to read the conversation...quite a challenge!) immediately following it cut to ABC so I saw the panalists´ comments. My jaw dropped...I couldn´t believe we were watching the same event. And that is EXACTLY the problem...MSM will never, never "get it" and it´s as though they think nothing refers to them or their reporting. It´s called suicide....oh, too bad.

You need no more illustration of the dishonesty of the MSM, than ABC pretending that George is an objective "journalist." This is the one of the guys who was in charge of "Bimbo Eruptions" for the clintons... going after innocent rape and harassment victims of B.J. He should be in prison, rather than daring to show his face on national TV.

FTA: "Dowd replied: ´...(H)e walked in there with a hornet´s nest of the press. What he did coming out of there was poke it even more.´"

One wonders what the press, its outrage meter over the redline and at fuel cutoff, will do if, instead of this 24/7 astroturfing of stories about nothing, a truly newsworthy story involving President Trump does come along. Incensed beyond the edge of psychosis, the Left have but two tools remaining in their escalation to the perfect storm of protest: Jonestown or spontaneous combustion. Either way, they´re gone.

As for Georgie Stephanopoulos, witness this winsome ditty:

For what it´s worth,
Stimulator of mirth,
Get thee a berth

Hey, ABC!

Look how small Bill Clinton looked on the cover of the November 24, 1997 issue of "Time" magazine . . . that is the issue where George Stephanapoulos and Thomas Friedman discuss the merits of an assassination for Saddam Hussein (did they consult the State Department on that before putting that opinion in print . . . oh, nevermind, the CIA can be blamed if anything goes wrong)

here is the link to the "Time" magazine cover with Clinton being stared down at by Saddam - when maybe he was more worried about finding a job for Monica Lewinsky -

Earlier today President Trump met with the House Freedom Caucus. The HFC is a group of professional electoral abusers who create battered conservative syndrome. The HFC has never passed legislation, nor have they ever taken a leadership role in politics when given every opportunity to actually lead. Personally, I have ZERO respect for the caucus itself or any joined member who would put group intransigence above common sense. The HFC are political countermeasures. (Photo) The caucus is what’s known as the “controlled opposition“, and despite the talking points to the contrary they are funded by billionaire individual donor special interests.

A House intelligence committee investigation took a dramatic shift this week after newly disclosed intelligence reports suggested the Obama administration improperly gathered and disseminated secret electronic communications from President Trump and his transition team prior to inauguration. Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, indicated that the administration used its foreign intelligence gathering authority to spy on the discussions of Trump and his transition team by improperly unmasking the identity of Americans who were swept up in foreign electronic spying.

Ryan postponed his press conference twice as he worked with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy R-Calif., Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., to get enough votes to get the American Healthcare Act through the

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.

A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the

President Trump is facing the first crucial test of his presidency — repealing and replacing Obamacare — and he needs to apply the negotiating chops and deal-making skills he bragged about in his bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal,” to fixing our broken health-care system. And given his low approval ratings, he needs a win. Dealing with the Obamacare mess has been the core focus of the Republican party for the past 7 years — not to mention a major campaign promise that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. So it’s imperative that the president seal the deal and

Currently, the Senate has 52 Republicans and 48 Democrats. “After careful deliberation, I have concluded that I cannot support judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court,” he said. “His nomination will have a cloture vote.
