NYT caught lying about President Trump

The New York Times gave lip service to mending its ways after the American public repudiated the media and elected Donald Trump as the 45th president. But today, the public caught the New York Times lying about Trump again.

From the New York Times two days ago:
Firings and Discord Put Trump Transition Team in a State of Disarray
WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition was in disarray on Tuesday, marked by firings, infighting and revelations that American allies were blindly dialing in to Trump Tower to try to reach the soon-to-be-leader of the free world.
One week after Mr. Trump scored an upset victory that took him by surprise, his team was improvising the most basic traditions of assuming power. That included working without official State Department briefing materials in his first conversations with foreign leaders.
Two officials who had been handling national security for the transition, former Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan and Matthew Freedman, a lobbyist who consults with corporations and foreign governments, were fired. Both were part of what officials described as a purge orchestrated by Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law and close adviser.
Plain, stinking bull.

President Trump just leaked news that Jeff Sessions will be his attorney general, Mike Pompeo will head the CIA, and General Flynn will be his national security advisor.

Just 10 days after Americans elected him president 30 states to 20 for Missus Clinton, Trump has made three key appointments.

Barack Obama still was in the Senate 10 days after his election in 2008.

His first appointments -- Lawrence Summers and Timothy F. Geithner -- came on November 24, 20 days after his election. Then he took the rest of the month off to plan his Christmas-in-Hawaii vacation.

Trump is moving along, having fun, and working on his presidency -- from his $100 million gold-and-marble penthouse apartment in New York. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe paid a call on Thursday. Nigel Farage was there a few days ago. Mitt Romney will bring his olive branch this weekend.

Obama is in Europe talking to the politically Walking Dead of the soon-to-be-disbanded European Union.

The New York Times is the ultimate thin man. It really does not know what time it is.


"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. The NYT knows that after eight years of Obama it's sunrise in America. That's why it's going to do everything it can to roll it back. It would rather fall back on hackneyed lies and spin than actually report news. I see that C-SPAN has even installed a live feed camera to watch the elevators and the people coming and going in Trump Tower. THAT is interesting, relevant to the news, and a bit ahead of the curve. - Elric

  2. Another common description I kept hearing of the "disorganized" and "messy" process was it was akin to a knife fight.

    If so, it was the media that was and still is being sliced to ribbons.

  3. With regard to the MSM hot takes, we've seen the man behind the curtain, yet the press continues to hype the magic. The gaslighting, fearmongering, and outright fabulism is HOW WE GOT TRUMP.

    They just don't fecking get it.

  4. My regional Hudson Valley rag did the exact thing: "Trump Transition in Disarray" right on the front page. Just disgusting. It's as if they simply don't want any Republican or Conservative customers. --Burnsie

  5. Definitely wishful thinking on their part!

  6. This is the norm now with Trump or anything or anyone associated with him. The left can abide no victor it has not itself crowned and will persist in seeking to destroy, even at its own cost, a successful enemy commander until it is itself pulped. One recalls the shredded Android crawling to continue its mission to kill in Terminator 2. At their bidding,Their hero Obama let Iraq be destroyed so he and they would not have to sustain Bush's victory there. So much more important was it that an enemy seem to fail even when victorious. As Caesar said people only remember what happened last. So with Trump. Everyday the media will declare some new defeat, some fault, some imperfection to graffiti his image, make people forget his triumph and their utter humiliation.
    For the NYT in particular fairness is a weakness that cannot be tolerated by its Mayan Master and his eunch slave, the self styled Rulers of the Selfish City.

  7. Don, it ain't news when the NYT lies. It's news when they tell the truth.

  8. Tsk, tsk, Don- another typo! The last word is missing in your excellent title: "Again."

  9. Need to proofread more carefully, Eskyman

    1. Nah, ain't a mistake, that there's the Surberatic Method. Gotta involve the disciple.

      It's like the Socratic Method, only without the hemlock and himation.

    2. (Facepalm!) I stand corrected!

      Besides, hemlock tastes terrible, and I don't look good in a toga.

  10. The MSM (NYT, CNN had best soon come to the realization that they are simply UNNECESSARY.

  11. It's really just projection as usual. The Dems are in disarray and floundering so they project that on The Donald's transition team.

  12. The NYTimes is an organ used by the CIA for its propaganda purposes. This is no more than an effort on the part of the CIA to try and shame Trump into reversing his decision. Thankfully, it didn't work.

  13. I hope the press continues to misunderestimate Donald Trump. It makes it more entertaining when he accomplishes what they said he could not.
