Fox host: Trump comments ‘one of the
biggest messes I’ve ever seen’

The Hill, by Olivia Beavers

Original Article

Posted By:Lalo, 8/16/2017 12:22:39 AM

Fox News´s Kat Timpf slammed President Trump on Tuesday for his "disgusting" press conference in which he again blamed "both sides" for the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, stepping back from his direct condemnation of white supremacist groups a day earlier. "It was one of the biggest messes I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe it happened," said Timpf, a co-host of “The Fox News Specialists.” “It is honestly crazy for me to have to comment on this right now because I’m still in the phase where I am wondering if it was actually real life —

This will not endear either Kat or present poster to many here, but it´s news. The point is not whether the President was right or wrong, but the result of his choice of words and the original lack of explanation. Did he not foresee the uproar? Or does he not care whether he creates one or not? Anyway, to me it´s water under the bridge. I just hope it´s not three and a half more years of strife and turbulence, no matter whose fault one may think it is.

Trump is right.

The president´s responses to the violence in Charlottesville seem totally appropriate to me. As soon as he starts to rebuke specific groups of wackos, the press will demand to know why he didn´t mention other specific groups of wackos.

I´ve never seen such a disgraceful, concerted, and utterly ridiculous over-reaction to normal presidential remarks about a sad but relatively unimportant event in a college town. The Never Trumpers are almost worse than the MSM, and that´s saying something. The Weekly Standard and the National Review have both gone over the top on this.

We shouldn´t expect our president to grovel in the face of popular whim, and citizens don´t get to instruct the president in what to say. If people don´t like him, then they can vote for Elizabeth Warren in 2020, and we´ll see how that turns out.

Trump batted 1000 in today´s press conference. He made it clear that there were TWO sides involved in the violence. They were both responsible and the media knows it. And if they would report it correctly, then everyone else would realize it too!

NO one in American media is qualified to pass judgment on what is the ´right´ thing to do or say. They sold their soul and integrity for any attention that gets them a nose in front of their horrible peers. They have been a dressed up prostitute for attention for the last 50+ years. Only idiots take cues from these jackals.

FTA: “Trump´s recent press conference will likely add further fuel to the fire for critics who say Trump is failing to condemn racism because he doesn´t want to lose extremist followers within his base.”

President Trump could have delivered the Gettysburg Address (as no one in the press would recognize it) and he would still be pilloried. Somehow in the pristine Progressive world it impossible for “many sides” or “both sides” to be equally at fault; Alt-Right violence is hateful racism and must be condemned, while Ctrl-Left violence is virtuous action against white privilege exerting its power.

It’s become apparent that Kessler’s Alt-Right is really a false flag organization of the radical Left/anarchists in order to have “conservative” violence. They tried baiting the TEA Movement into violence, as well as Trump supporters leaving his rallies, and failed every time to initiate a group level response from the decidedly non-violent middle class. It appears they decided to form their own “white nationalist/supremacist” (their chosen portrayal of patriots) groups to give the Antifas a skirmish team. The media narrative can then place all blame on the “Alt-Right”, including every Trump voter into the definition.

The President’s enemies are hoping that by defining Trump supporters as “white supremacists” they will slink away from him. Kat spate out a hairball disguised as an opinion and I’m supposed to disavow my support for President Trump because she “thinks” he made a “mess” with his remarks. Not a chance. You don’t beat the other guy in a rumble playing by garden party rules.

President Trump is doing fine. I trust his judgment, intellect, and experience to lead him successfully through the enemedia minefield. That’s why I voted for him.

MAGA – Sometimes you have to make a mess to clean up a mess.

the news media is really leaning hard on this ploy this week - like George W. Bush and Hurricane Katrina, all over again -

plus more Republicans and so-called "conservatives" piling on -

Lee is beloved and honored especially because the way he surrendered at Appomattox ruled out on ongoing guerrilla war, which some of his generals favored. Google something like "Lee guerrilla warfare" to see explanations. That is, what the Democrats are doing now, refusing to accept a loss, drawing all their followers to fight and bleed and attack the country on and on, is what Lee rejected. FWIW my ancestors fought very hard for the Union. One volunteered, one was drafted. I honor Lee from my point of view, with GRATITUDE. If the SJWs knew more history they would too. I honor Lee in the name of my ancestors who fought and suffered, whose further suffering he prevented. Screw Antifa, they know nothing.

The president is his own worst enemy (to reuse a tired old cliche). He always seems to feel he needs to get the last word. In some cases, he´s right to do so. In others, such as this one, his "last word" only keeps the furor alive and isn´t helpful to him or his agenda. Let it go, Sir. Move on. The media won´t be happy, but they are not going to be won over, no matter how many last words you get. Focus on your plans and your projects and the things that are going to be advantageous to the nation and the economy. Forget trying to convince the unconvinceable.

The only consistent quality in this situation is the people who hate President Trump, during the primary, during the campaign and after the election. Everything he does is wrong, even if his response was right on the money. The controversy will not end in months or even years. The same news organizations, the same posters here, the same movie "stars" and the same racist hacks who think Barack Obama should still be in office can be depended upon to smear Trump at every opportunity. You won´t be happy until the next democrat idiot takes office and completes the destruction that Obama began and all the time you will be calling it "progress."

See another complete idiot,They don´t listen. Trump was not talking about who is and is not a hate group. Do you get it so far. He was talking about the riot and chaos that ensued. What he said was BOTH sides are at fault. He is exactly right. BOTH SIDES brought weapons, both sides were there to fight. Look at the videos, listen to witnesses, all said the same thing. Both sides start fighting. The biggest culprits are the mayor & gov who could have avoided the whole mess if they DID THEIR JOB. Got it.

Again - #40 for example - of course the President´s point was correct. The problem is how he made the point, and his emphasis. The proof is in the pudding. Rather than subdue his enemies, they are coming at us all with spears and machetes. You have to be wise in these communications. You can´t always just flatly give ´just the facts, ma´am´ and expect it to go over, especially when he and all of us on the right are susceptible to charges of racism to begin with.

The smoke will eventually subside - a bit.

Onward with your great agenda, Mr. President.

Fox of any persuasion can go to Perdition. The TV media think they are invincible and irreplaceable but I am middle aged with plenty of years left in me and talk to many Millennials and they don´t watch TV, ever.

There are many ways to get news without subjecting myself to 2 more Fox "you go grrrrllll" female hires with their Fox chick uniforms. Yeah.. they were hired for their brains and conservative credentials... whatever you say.

Poster #11 I would love to shake your hand. You hit the nail squarely on the head about the whole Charlottesville debacle and Ms. Timpf from that lackluster show "The Fox News Specialists". The last time I watched it was when they had that bozo Guy Benson sitting between the two good looking but annoying women in her and Williams. All I have to say is when Marie Harf comes out as sounding more intelligent than you it´s time to hang it up. President Trumps comments on Saturday were spot on and on Monday they were just an add on. The only big mess that I´ve seen is the show on FNC that comes on at 5pm. I say cancel it put Mark Stein on by himself at 5, send the SE Cupp clone to CNN and get rid of Perino and replace her with Eboni on The Five.

During his radio program yesterday, Limbaugh remained defiant, claiming that media accusations that he was placing people in danger by spreading conspiracy theories were completely untrue.

Suddenly, it seems like Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) are driving the agenda in Congress. The deal President Trump struck with the two Democrats over the objection of the majority leaders in his own party has at least temporarily upended the balance of power in Washington, emboldening Democrats who now see space to work with Trump on immigration and spending. It’s a dramatic shift from Trump’s first seven months in office, when the president worked almost exclusively with Republicans and Democrats were largely an afterthought. But

The speaker also responded to Fox News’ Martha McCallum‘s question about rumors that he was anger over Trump’s decision, vowing he “wasn’t furious.” For Ryan, this was

All planned deployment of the U.S. missile defense system THAAD to South Korea is complete, 14 months after the United States and South Korea publicly announced the decision in July 2016. The deployment of four additional launchers to Seongju, central South Korea, prompted Chinese state media to issue a strong condemnation that likened THAAD to a "malignant tumor" that was as provocative as "North Korea´s nuclear weapons." South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo said Thursday the four launchers were all delivered to the designated site, 40 days after Seoul had agreed to place more missile defense in the area following

On this issue, his actions have been more effective than those of past presidents. So far, the assumption that Trump is bungling or exacerbating the crisis with North Korea isn’t justified. Ever since he came down the escalator at Trump Tower that fateful day in June 2015, President Trump’s critics have worried that his anger-management and impulse-control issues would be exposed in an international crisis. Everything we’ve learned about him tells us that he is temperamentally unsuited to diplomacy or putting forward the image of quiet strength and confidence that is synonymous with traditional ideas about good leadership.

Let us define our terms: What is an Act of War? There are two types of Acts of War: de jure, which means as a matter of law and de facto, which means as a matter of fact. Unless a nation literally announces (de jure) to the world community, as in a declaration of war, that it committed an attack on the personnel and/or territory of another nation it comes down to a matter of fact (de facto) as assumed by the nation being attacked. These are the established facts: since late 2016

Sen. Tom Cotton said Wednesday that he’s open to granting legal status to children brought to the U.S. illegally as part of his proposed legislation. “My legislation doesn’t include that now, but what I’m proposing is that we can sit down and negotiate, include legal status for the 600,000 to 800,000 people who are covered by the DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] program, and discuss the problem,” Mr. Cotton, Arkansas Republican, said on MSNBC. “That would create a secondary effect, make sure we’re not opening legal status for people who violated law in the first place, and that we’re

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday assured incoming high schoolers that they need not to worry about President Trump ending the “Dreamers” program, saying Chicago Public Schools are a “Trump-free” sanctuary for young illegal immigrants. “To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and in the city of Chicago: You are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home. And you have nothing to worry about,” Mr. Emanuel told a group of freshman on the first day of classes at Solorio Academy High School, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our

At his swearing-in as the nation’s top law enforcement official in February, Attorney General Jeff Sessions picked up a thread that had run throughout Donald Trump’s campaign for president: America is experiencing an alarming crime wave. “We have a crime problem,” Sessions said. “I wish the rise that we are seeing in crime in America today were some sort of aberration or a blip. My best judgment, having been involved in criminal law enforcement for many years, is that this is a dangerous, permanent trend that places the health and safety of the American people at risk.” Preliminary analysis

Ronald Reagan would “not kick the dreamers out of the US” if he were president today, according to his eldest son. “He would find a way to work with Congress and lead,” Michael Reagan tweeted Tuesday following the Trump administration’s announcement that it plans to do away with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, over the next six months. The 40th president’s only adopted child appears to support the idea of putting Congress on the hot seat and letting them make the decision about what to do with the 800,000 illegal immigrants

Sen. John McCain almost certainly just killed TrumpCare — and gave a boost to managed-care stocks such as UnitedHealth (UNH) and Centene (CNC).

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the
