Is it really that big of surprise to most Americans that President Trump refers to certain media like NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and the New York Times as the “enemy of the American People” or #FakeNews? Come on Man! The MSM has been in the bag for so many years with Obama and Clinton that the blind sheeple just took their little morsals and went on their merry little way. Now that Trump is president, he’s just telling it like it is…these organizations are #FakeNews.
What is pretty amazing is that these organizations like CNN can deny that they haven’t been so honest or upfront with the public. Or better yet, like MSNBC and Mika Brzezinski, that they just say ridiculous and outlandish, but truthful things like…”he (Trump) can actually control exactly what people think…and that, THAT is our job!” Say WHAT?!
H/T Liberty Unyielding:
While discussing President Trump’s entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Brzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.
“And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think,” Brzezinski said. “And that, that is our job.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”
BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
Here’s the clip:
The comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.
SCARBOROUGH: “It’s the — it’s the ground noise that he is throwing out there also, whether he is questioning, Mark, the legitimacy of federal judges to do what they have done since Marbury v. Madison. It’s when he says the media is the, quote –“
SCARBOROUGH: “– ‘enemy of the people’, where he sounds like Mussolini or Lenin which obviously causes concern that phrase right there makes him sound more like a dictator in training, when he sends Stephen Miller out and says, basically the president has absolute power, he shall not be questioned.”
MSNBC’s Scarborough and Brzezinski must still be living in ‘la la land’ and think Obama is still president. Either that or they were so conditioned to responding when Obama was president, that they don’t know how to deal with honesty and truth in the media, especially now that we have a new president that is transparent with the American people and “tells it like it is.” Someone might want to inform MSNBC and Brzezinski that it’s ok to be transparent…that’s one reason why Trump was elected president. Americans were fed up with all the BS from the MSM.
To her own credit, Mika did respond later on Twitter to her critics:
Today I said it’s the media’s job to keep President Trump from making up his own facts, NOT that it’s our job to control what people think.
