The Liberal Sycophants of the Main Stream Media attacked President Donald J. Trump’s Press Secretary once again during his daily press briefing. And, once again, Spicer proved to be up to the task.
Foxnews.com reports that
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer accused the media Monday of overplaying and misreporting on a range of fresh administration controversies — specifically describing claims of a shakeup at the National Security Council as “utter nonsense.”
“There’s been a lot of misreporting,” Spicer said.
The press briefing on Monday saw a return to a more combative style for Spicer. While he spent much of the briefing chiding the media over their description of President Trump’s executive order on immigration, he opened with a point-by-point rebuttal — complete with visual aids — to critical reports about a separate action signed Saturday that restructures the NSC, a key advisory body.
Those reports claimed Trump had effectively downgraded the roles of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence, while promoting adviser Steve Bannon to the principals committee – which is the National Security Council, only without the president.
The New York Times had labeled Bannon’s role “a startling elevation of a political adviser” and said it put him at the same level as National Security Adviser Mike Flynn. The Times also said the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and DNI chief are only to join the principals committee when directly affected.
Spicer shot back, saying, “The idea that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and DNI are being downgraded or removed is utter nonsense.”
In making his point, he presented a related 2001 memo by President George W. Bush and a related 2009 memo by President Barack Obama, and argued the relevant passages were virtually the same.
As for Bannon’s elevation, Spicer also downplayed its significance and noted that former Obama adviser David Axelrod had attended NSC meetings as well, though had not been given a formal promotion to the role.
“David Axelrod walked in and out of NSC meetings,” he said. “What this shows is that this administration is being rather transparent.”
He also suggested Bannon “won’t be at every meeting.” He added, “He’ll come in and out as needed, but we wanted to be up front about it.”
Spicer also reacted to a tweet by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, who had asked where the role of the CIA was in the memo. Spicer noted there was no mention of the CIA in Obama’s 2009 memo either. However, he said Trump had decided to amend his memo to add CIA Director Mike Pompeo to the top circle of national security advisers
Since taking the podium for the first time last week, Spicer has made a point to call out what the administration believes to be inaccurate or biased reporting. On Monday, he also doubled down on the administration’s defense of the controversial order suspending the refugee program and entry to the U.S. for travelers from certain countries. Spicer said it was one of a number of steps “to make sure that this country is as safe as it can be and that we’re ahead of every threat.”
Spicer further was asked to comment on a report in The Washington Post that said dozens of State Department staffers are ready to sign a memo opposing Trump’s travel restrictions, saying they are poorly conceived and against American values.
Spicer seemed unfazed by the memo: “I think that they should either get with the program or they can go,” he said. “This is about the safety of America.”
He also addressed the controversy surrounding a statement released by the White House on Holocaust Remembrance Day – which omitted any specific reference to Jewish people despite them being the overwhelming majority of victims in the genocide.
“By and large he’s been praised for it,” Spicer said of the statement. He said Trump was recognizing the suffering of those who endured the Holocaust, “whether they were Jews, Gypsies, gays, [people with a] disability, priests.”
“The idea that you’re nitpicking a statement that sought to remember this tragic event that occurred and the people who died in it is just ridiculous,” he said.
The Republican Jewish Coalition, among other groups, called the omission “unfortunate.”
The Main Stream Media remain the Vanguard of the National Temper Tantrum which America has witnessed from Modern Liberals since Donald J. Trump was elected the President of the United States of America.
The Liberal Democrats just cannot come to grips that their “perfect” candidate was, in fact, a lousy pick and a hateful, inept, downright mean individual whom they never should have nominated as their Presidential Choice.
One of their arguments has been that Trump did not win the Popular Vote, a “fact” which is suspicious at best and one which is being investigated even as I write this post, with illegal aliens have voted already being discovered in California.
As I have stated before, the Electoral College was put in place to prevent what the Liberals are still trying to accomplish, which is choosing a President based on the favored Political Ideology of isolated Metropolitan Areas with dense populations.
The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and West Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.
To put it in Marital Terms, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party are no longer “evenly yoked”.
The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.
The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.
Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, boys and girls?
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.
An article, recently written by a member of the Main Stream Media, strategically placed the word “mandate”, which Vice-President Mike Pence used while speaking about President Trump, in quotes, as a form of derision.
The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as
the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.
Guess what, all of you “Special Snowflakes” who still throwing a National Temper Tantrum?
Trump won! Therefore, he does have a mandate.
It is to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Enjoy the ride.
I dedicate the following song which I have written to each and every one of you.
AND, DONALD TRUMP IS STILL THE PRESIDENT
(sung to the tune of “The Times They Are Changing”)
Listen to me, you Liberals who are throwing a fit
On November the 8th your egos took a hit
Americans aren’t fooled yet you refuse to admit
Your political party has just failed you
It’s time you grew up, and go ahead and submit
Because Donald Trump is still the President.
Hey, Congressmen and Senators way up on the Hill
There’s a new Boss in town, this is no fire drill
Both Republicans and Dems should extend their goodwill
It won’t be business as usual
So you better get movin’ up in your anthill
Because Donald Trump is still the President.
Yes, Donald Trump is still the President.
Hey, MSM and George Soros, too
You can save your breath, America’s not listening to you
Try as you might, you won’t change our worldview
Americans just simply were outraged
So we took back our country after an 8-year miscue
And, Donald Trump is still the President.
Until He Comes,
