President Trump to networks: Drop Dead

You tired of winning yet? Me neither. Taking a page from Barack Obama's War On Fox, President Trump laid into the television news media today in a private meeting today at Trump Tower.



In a performance worthy of The Apprentice (apparently), Trump pointed out their many, many, many mistakes in covering his campaign.

From the New York Post:
“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.
A second source confirmed the fireworks.
“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.
“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”
The meeting was off-the-record.

And off-the-charts.

In the campaign, the media nearly universally campaigned against him. Taking orders from Hilary Rodham Clinton -- WikiLeaks proved that -- the press called him Hitler, and his supporters Klansmen.

I support a free press.

When do we get one?

Right now we have a bunch of social justice warriors trying to turn America into a communist state. They hate capitalism -- except of course when it comes to their wallets.

Now we get to hear these jokers talk for the next week about how unfair getting dressed down was.

Boo hoo hoo.

They can dish it out, but they sure cannot take it.

I feel so much better for writing my book on their comeuppance in the primaries -- and I relish writing the sequel.

"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.

  1. Big D, there are plenty of targets out there right now! This story doesn't surprise me. Donald is going to administer some hard spankings to these fools. Clearly, their parents never did. Well, somebody has to...

  2. Trump: "An interview? About my car ..."

    Journalist: "You want to hold the interview in your car?"

    Trump: "No, I want you to tongue-wash my car first."

    1. Hmm. Worth considering. Already wrote 50,000 words (checks the manuscript). Do-able. Just bump the other chapters on down the line. I like it. May do that.

    2. I reckon, send The Donald a complimentary copy of Trump The Press, and invite him to write a brief foreword for the sequel.

      He just might do it.

  4. Finally, a President who is a leader. He is, as most of us are, sick of being belittled by the media. Good job President Trump.

  5. Oh to be fly on the wall…

    I noticed that most of those on the list at that meeting were also mentioned in Podesta's email on wikileaks as directly colluding with the Hillary campaign through various means, ie., providing debate questions or interview questions or directly broadcasting DNC talking points.

    They earned getting their ears pinned back. I hope Jeff Zucker had to change pants. Raddatz was prolly crying again.

  8. My God. Someone who knows how to fight and is willing to do so.

    "You all hate me with every fiber of your beings; I just beat you when you went to the edge of credibility - and beyond. I'm ready for what you got left. Just so you know. Because I am a fair man."

    What a frackin' revelation - if you fight them, you can win, because if you don't fight you will lose - and we have waited how long for this?

  10. "polite" was on the ropes when the Clintons came to Washington, and the obamas have buried "polite" in the dustbin of history, at least for now. Screw polite. We have seen what politeness gets us. The communist democrat and media left has picked a fight with the wrong group. They are WAY over their head and they haven't seen anything yet. Good job Donald. Those media pussies are probably feeling "hurt." Donald let them off easy compared to what a bunch of average conservative guys would do to them. Why is Steppiecocci still here, I thought the little price and his betrothed were moving?
