Trump Meets the Press: It Was a “F*ucking Firing Squad!”

ELDER PATRIOT – Yesterday, Donald Trump sent notice to everyone that he would not shrink from an all out war with the media if they insisted on continuing their dishonest reporting that was intended to influence the nation’s politic instead of simply reporting on it in an unbiased manner.

Trump invited between thirty and forty top network executives and on air personalities to an off the record meeting that the invitees expected to be a cordial attempt to mend fences.

That was their first mistake.  This is Donald Trump a man who appreciates loyalty and has no tolerance for liars and backstabbers.

The attendees included NBC’s Deborah Turness, Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s James Goldston, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Martha Raddatz, CBS’ Norah O’Donnell John Dickerson, Charlie Rose, Christopher Isham and King, Fox News’ Bill Shine, Jack Abernethy, Jay Wallace, Suzanne Scott, MSNBC’s Phil Griffin and CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Erin Burnett.

As agreed to from the beginning the substance of the discussions were kept private but that didn’t prevent the attendees from characterizing it as a “f*cking firing squad.”

These propagandists deserve a lot worse than a simple dressing down for their complicity in trying to steal this election from Trump and our country from we, the people.

Kellyanne Conway who is serving as the transition’s spokeswoman was classier than the chastened “journalists” in her description of the meeting. “Excellent meeting with the top executives of the major networks.  Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days,” she commented afterwards.

The following is an example of the dishonesty that president-elect Trump will not tolerate:

Reince Priebus, Trump’s newly appointed Chief of Staff, appeared Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd.

Todd:  Can you equivocally rule out a registry for Muslims.”

Priebus:  “Look, I’m not going to rule out anything but we’re not going to have a registry based on religion.  But what we’re trying to do is say that there are some people, certainly not all people, there are some people that are radicalized and there are some people that have to be prevented from coming into this country.”

Watch for yourself:

Afterwards Todd tweeted this:

Todd completely misrepresented what Priebus had said on behalf of president-elect Trump.  To put it more bluntly, Chuck Todd lied.

The very next day Donald Trump redressed the lying and corrupt corporate media that for many months were every bit as disingenuous in their reporting on a daily basis as Todd was following Sunday’s interview. 

It’s likely that in the wake of yesterday’s meeting the media will attempt to portray Trump as a tyrant who is trying to intimidate them into doing his bidding.  The reality is that Trump is trying to get them to do the bidding of the American people and not the globalists.

With only three in ten Americans believing the press has any level of integrity, Trump is well positioned to win this war.

Frankly, Trump would have been well within his rights to ask every person in that room who had smeared him with allegations that he was a supporter of the KKK to leave and to deny them access to future meetings with him.

Donald Trump is proving to be an uncommon man with a steel spine.  It’s high time the corporately owned media is held to account.
