I had written an earlier post that posed a few questions about the incoming Drumpf Administration. One of those queries was “Who will be the first person Drumpf insults?”
Less than thirty-six hours after being sworn in as the Leader of the Free World, we have our answer.
The answer is the members of the press.
Drumpf, while speaking at the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and while standing in front of the stars that represent the personnel of the CIA who have fallen in the service of their country, took the majority of his time in front of this sacred space to lash out against the press – one of the few organizations so important to the lifeblood of our country that they are explicitly mentioned in the United States Constitution.
They [the media] are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.
Drumpf labelled the media as dishonest because he said the media “…made it sound like I had a feud with the intelligence community.”
Really? The media manufactured this feud?
Did the media make it up when Drumpf tweeted the following on January 11?
Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?
Did the media make it up when Drumpf accused the intelligence community of leaking when he tweeted the following on January 8?
Before I, or anyone, saw the classified and/or highly confidential hacking intelligence report, it was leaked out to
@NBCNews. So serious!
“Outgoing CIA Chief, John Brennan, blasts Pres-Elect Trump on Russia threat. Does not fully understand.” Oh really, couldn’t do…
much worse – just look at Syria (red line), Crimea, Ukraine and the build-up of Russian nukes. Not good! Was this the leaker of Fake News?
Drumpf, in his own words and tweets, created this feud. The media is only reporting what Drumpf himself has written.
Drumpf may have labeled the media as “among the most” dishonest folk and the only reason he did not use the superlative “most dishonest human being on earth” is because that spot is reserved for himself.
