Should We Expect Anything Less From A Disgraced And Fired Reporter? Until The Press Realizes They Are To Report The News And Not Make It, Their Respect Will Continue To Decline
Dan Rather Just Told Trump Off To His Face, It Went Viral In Seconds [Details]
Legendary journalist Dan Rather refuses to allow our democracy to get steamrolled by a narcissistic madman like Trump.
After Trump’s first press conference and all the revelations about hacks and Russian mailing, Rather decided to send Trump a message directly.
Said Rather, “President Asterisk. Watching the press conference today and the days that have preceded it, I think that is what Donald Trump, with his dangerous mixture of big ego and thin skin, is worried about – especially when it comes to the Russian hacking determination. His beating of his chest and bellicose tweets about his big win and the sore losers who won’t accept it are really the actions of weakness not strength. He worries that history will consider him a less than fully legitimate president from the start – President Asterisk.”
He added, “What’s done is done with the vote. There will not be an election redo. But if you, Mr. Trump, fail to take the Russian threat seriously, there will be an asterisk next to your name. If you do not disentangle yourself from your business interests, if you promote corrupt or conflicted advisors and cabinet members, if you fail to understand the gravity of the foreign policy crisis you face, if you deprive millions of health care without an alternative, if you fail to act on the global threat of climate change, if you pit Americans against each other by race, gender, and religion, if you undermine science and reason, if you do these or any of the other items on a long list of what now seems probable, there will be an asterisk next to your name.” Ouch! Do you think Rather is correct about President Asterisk?
