Get Bloomberg a subscription to USA Today

President Trump will follow in Ronald Reagan's footsteps and become the first president in 34 years to address the NRA. Last year, as a candidate, he also spoke to them.

Bloomberg News tried to drive a wedge between gun supporters and President Trump.

Instead, the business news agency pulled a boner, easily discredited.

President Trump has had a concealed weapons permit his entire adult life from New York City, one of the toughest towns to get one. It helps when you have friends at City Hall. Plus, he needed one given the occasionally huge amounts of money he carried.

His credentials on gun ownership and the Second Amendment are impeccable -- if you look deeper than his celebrity status, which few political reporters seem industrious enough to do.

In its report, Bloomberg stated:
His return visit to speak to the group’s 2017 Leadership Forum in Atlanta is likely to appeal to Trump’s base at a time when he has received criticism for reversing himself on promises to his most ardent supporters. At the same time, Trump’s speech to the influential lobby could repel Democrats and moderates who have been chafing under his presidency and have blocked some of his proposals from advancing in Congress.
The visit is scheduled for April 28, the last day of government funding under the current spending bill. If Congress doesn’t pass a new spending measure by that day, the government faces a partial shutdown.
While Trump has not yet signed significant legislation or executive orders on gun rights, his appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court was hailed by the NRA. Gorsuch took the seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia, who died last year and was part of a 5-4 majority in the pivotal D.C. v. Heller case. The ruling marked the first time the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment protected an individual’s right to own a firearm for lawful purposes such as self-defense in the home.
Au contraire, Bloomberg.

President Trump signed a significant congressional joint resolution on February 28 ending Barack Obama's attempt to take guns away from the elderly and veterans.

It was in all the papers, but I could not find a Bloomberg report on it.

From USA Today:
President Trump killed a regulation that would have tightened gun background checks Tuesday, signing a bill to undo one of his predecessor's executive actions following the San Bernardino shootings in 2015.
The Obama administration rule required the Social Security Administration to submit records of mentally disabled people to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, the FBI database used to determine whether someone can buy a firearm under the 1993 Brady Bill.
The rule would have applied to about 75,000 people who were “adjudicated as a mental defective" and who had applied for Social Security benefits, and had a mechanism to notify those affected so they could appeal. But congressional Republicans said the rule could ensnare people who had mental health issues but otherwise were competent to own a gun.
That's significant legislation.

The newspaper failed to point out that Obama's gun grab would not have prevented the Muslim terrorist attack that killed 14 people and wounded 22 others at an office Christmas party.

The terrorists were not on Social Security.

Obama politicized a national tragedy to push his Marxist agenda of ending our rights to arm ourselves.

That's gone now. Shortly, his only legacy will be he was the first black president, his community organizer agenda erased by President Trump, a successful businessman.

I hope President Trump has a good time in Atlanta with a group that supported him in the last election.

Also, I hope the media continues its hysterical and sloppy work covering President Trump.

Far from making him look bad, these mutton heads are helping re-elect him by insulating him from criticism because they are so wrong so often that when they say it is dark outside, Trump supporters know the sun is shining.

The original, "Trump the Press" chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.
Then came "Trump the Establishment," covering the election, which again the media missed.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

  1. It's been a long time since I trusted the media, and it'll be a lot longer, if ever, before I will.

  2. The anti-gun bitter Bloomberg is another Mark Cuban. Very jealous of DJT and wetting their pants daily.

  3. Ah the commie rag USSR Yesterday.No different than their comrades at The Slimes or The Compost.
