The mainstream media exists not to present the facts and then trust the people to decide, but their purpose is to engineer a narrative and tell us only the facts that support their version of the “truth.”
BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
It became clear at that moment that the media no longer existed to expose government wrongdoing, fraud, and largesse. It exists to protect it. Nothing that has transpired since Mika made that comment has changed the mind of any Trump supporter.
The old joke has proven true; How can you tell when a politician is lying? Answer… His/her lips are moving. NOT WITH TRUMP.
If anything, more and more people are awakening to this reality.
And, that inability to separate President Trump from his supporters is driving the partisan anti-Trump media bonkers.
The reason is two-fold and nothing the media can do now, having lied about Russian collusion, obstruction of justice, Ukraine, and the current Chinese virus, will change these things.
Reason one; Trump was presidential enough for all time when he made this short speech during the 2016 campaign…
“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt establishment with a new government, controlled by you, the American people.
“The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exists for only one reason, to protect and enrich itself.
“The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election for those who control the levers of power in Washington.
“And for the global special interests they partner with, these people that don’t have your good in mind, our campaign represents a true existential threat…
“…The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.”
Reason two; From that moment forward, Trump only needed to be the savage fighter that he promised to be. He didn’t run for president to play footsie with the enemy…
Once Americans heard someone defend them rather than foreigners, someone who spoke of wage increases and not explain away their personal economic stagnancy, someone who defended their right to speak freely without the handcuffs of political correctness and censorship, someone who promised to protect their Second Amendment rights, and someone who defended American workers over the needs of foreign workers… they no longer cared if he wasn’t a smooth talking snake oil salesman.
Trump may piss you off but one thing is always constant… He never lies to us… N.E.V.E.R.
As Joe Scarborough said in the clip above: “… what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.’”
