Trump: “Fake News Got it Purposely Wrong” on Him Calling Illegals “Animals”

It’s hard to argue with him.

President Trump was clearly referring to members of MS 13 when he referred to “Animals” coming across the border.

MSM reporters don’t like Trump and believe he is a racist. In their eagerness to paint him in a bad light, they decided this was a “there he goes again” moment recalling his campaign announcement speech, in which he said “rapists” were coming across the border. And so they decided to ignore what he was obviuosly saying, something that few MSM editors would argue with.

And it’s also a much better story to suggest he might be saying something racist than to simply report the obvious notion that vicious gang members are animals.

“Because the press believes President Trump hates immigrants, especially if they’re from South America, everything he says about the subject is interpreted through that prism,” wrote Becket Adams in the Washington Examiner. “There’s no excuse for the hard news side of the journalism business getting things so completely wrong.”

Another bad day at the office for the press, which once again sat down at its desk, took out a pistol, and shot itself in the foot.

Media Say Cuba Embassy Opening is “Historic;” Jerusalem is “Controversial”

As you might have guessed, nobody thinks it’s a big deal to grant this concession to the Cuba tyrants, who as far as I’ve seen have changed their behavior very little since Obama did this years ago. But do something that upsets Hamas and supports the democratic Israeli state, and oh boy, you’ve got a problem.

A big H/T to the Washington Free Beacon.

Video || Jim Acosta Loses Connection While Reporting to Wolf

Whoops. Just as he was complaining that Trump was telling one of the Baltic leaders not to call on an American reporter. That apparently was the “news” out of the press conference – something about the press. After returning to the air a couple of minutes later, according to the Washington Free Beacon, Acosta seemed… Continue Reading

New Book Debunks Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury”

It was frustrating to see an author, Michael Wolff, being taken gravely seriously by the media despite having been previously discredited and writing a book about President Trump that contained obvious inaccuracies. My former colleague and the Washington Examiner, Eddie Scarry, decided to do something about it, publishing a new book that is out today,… Continue Reading
