First from Media-ite:
CNN’s Fareed Zakaria declared today that a Donald Trump victory is “Putin’s dream come true, in a sense.”
He told Brooke Baldwin that most of the world is beyond shocked by what just happened, but not Russia.
Born in India, has an exotic name, yep, Zakaria knows what is happening everywhere around the world and can speak for 8 billlion non-Americans.Zakaria said Putin wanted someone like Trump who could weaken sanctions against Russia and tell the world to not be so tough on Russia.
Too bad he couldn't tell the election outcome before Tuesday.
ABC News’ Martha Raddatz began to choke up during the network’s 2016 Election Night coverage when discussing the ramifications a President Donald Trump might have on the military.
Raddatz, one of the 2016 debate moderators, sounded shaky from the get-go. “Donald Trump, I questioned what he would do about Syria and his understanding of military policy and civilian/military divide, I don’t know that he really has a plan for what he’s going to do there,” she said.
Speaking of understanding Syria, who drew that line in the sand? Who didn't enforce it? Who armed the "rebels" who turned out to be the Islamic State.The report added this:
This post has been edited since it was originally posted. The headline has been changed to better reflect Martha Raddatz’s reaction. An ABC News spokesperson also responded to the article by saying that it was “ridiculous and untrue.” In fairness to Raddatz, at the time of this report, she had been on air for nearly 7 hours live reporting about the election.Disney is a multi-billion-dollar company and it could not afford to have people to relieve her as anchor when she was tired?
That's unfair. The better comparison is a doctor on 24-hour call. They don't get a pass on malpractice just because they are tired.
And on CNN, communist Van Jones said:
“This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that’s the part where the pain comes. And Donald Trump has a responsibility tonight to come out and reassure people that he is going to be the president of all the people who he insulted and offended and brushed aside.”Racist. If this were a century earlier, Jones would be in klansman garb saying the same thing about black people.
And on The View:
Today on The View, Whoopi Goldberg backed up Van Jones‘ assertion that the election of Donald Trump was partially a “whitelash” against a black President.Well, Goldberg, it wasn't rapey rape.
Finally, from the Daily Express:
As various major US news networks prepared to confirm the Republican's victory over Hillary Clinton, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow gave a bitter response while live on air.
The sombre host told MSNBC viewers, as Mr Trump edged towards victory: “You’re awake by the way.
“You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell.
“This is your life now, this is our election now, this is us, this is our country – it’s real.”Yes, it is our life.
And it is beautiful.
But then again, I am not a millionaire.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
The sequel is coming.
