Maybe It Is Not Presidential But It Sure Does Rile The Press

Watching the Sunday programs today was like one repeat of the same talking points from show to show. Each one wanted their guests to blast Trump, to say that he was immature, that he was not being "Presidential."  Trump has their "panties in a wad."

While I am not sure his method will work long term, I am convinced that he is driving home the point and will continue to do as long as it works. The media is out of control, no longer reports the news and, unfortunately for the United States, will not be reformed until it goes too far.

What will  the media do to cause this forced reformation?  It could be openly encouraging revolution, it could be suggesting that (or offering to pay) someone assassinate the President or it could be something else as dastardly and anti-American.  However, whatever happens or who does it, the combined media chorus will be  "Trump made him/her do it."

The media must take responsibility for their "fake news", their quoting one source or even making up news to prove their point.  It must stop and we call on those in control of CNN, ABC, NBC , CBS, New York Times, Washington Post and every newspaper, radio station, television station in the US to return to the standards that made your occupation and honorable and respected one.

Otherwise, the decline of journalist standards will only encourage more Presidential tweets and more politicians who will see that Trump has paid no penalty for taking on the press which will continue the decline of America into a third world country.

Trump Tweets Video of Himself Attacking CNN

President Donald Trump is continuing his feud against the media. On Sunday morning, he tweeted a video showing him punching a man with the CNN logo on his head during a WWE wrestling match.
The video follows Trump's series of tweets Saturday where he renewed his resentment against what he called the "fake and fraudulent" media. He defended his amount of tweeting as "modern day presedential" and called out CNN saying, "I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!"
The original video footage is from WrestleMania 23 in 2007 when Trump went up against WWE CEO Vince McMahon during a "Battle of the Billionaires" match. Both Trump and McMahon chose wrestlers to represent them in the ring.


CNN has responded with the following statement:
"It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters. Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the President had never done so. Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is instead involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his."
CNN Communications also directly replied to Trump's tweet with a quote from Sanders that she said during a press briefing on Thursday: "The President in no way form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence. If anything, quite the contrary.
