Some of you may be saying, why give this sort of nonsense any more exposure at all — and you’re right, but we do feel it’s important to call this stuff out when we see it.
The left’s hysterical reaction to Donald Trump’s presidency appears to have no depth to which it will not go.
His candid and harsh comments on the media’s ability to provide unbiased and truthful reporting have clearly hit a very sensitive nerve. As Col. West often says, “if you’re getting flak, it means you’re over the target.”
But now it appears some in the media aren’t just suffering hurt feelings; they’ve actually convinced themselves their lives are at risk.
Per Newsbusters.org, MSNBC took its fear mongering smears of the Donald Trump administration to a dark new low Monday afternoon when reporter Katy Tur suggested the president’s war with the media would start racking up actual casualties. During an interview with Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican, Tur suggested Trump would take a page from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s playbook and start targeting journalists for death.
“As we know, there’s, since 2000, been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in Russia who came out against the government there,” Tur reminded the Senator before unscrupulously suggesting Trumps distaste for the media would escalate, “Donald Trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesn’t agree with him here. Do you find that this is a dangerous path he is heading down?”
Fischer defended the President, saying that it’s his job to foster relationships with leaders from countries around the globe. “And I believe that President Trump will recognize, or does recognize right now, who Putin is,” she added in his defense.
But Tur wasn’t having any of it, pressuring the Senator by asking, “What makes you say that he does recognize who Putin is when he hasn’t said so publicly?” The Senator tried to argue that the new president wasn’t going to sour the relationship right out of the gate, but was cut off by her interviewer. “There is a difference between attacking and flattering,” Tur spat.
Gee, Madonna wants to “blow up the White House,” so-called comedian Sarah Silverman wants to stage a military coup, campus leftists are now teaching hand-to-hand combat techniques to paranoid followers to protect their “safe spaces” — but they’re the ones smashing windows and lighting things on fire — and WE’RE the crazy ones?
Anyone else getting tired of this crap? And it hasn’t even been one month!
