According to the Media Research Center, 89 percent of broadcast networks’ coverage of President Donald J. Trump has been negative.
From January 20 to April 9, 1,501 on-air statements about Trump made by experts, carefully selected voters, and reporters were negative, compared to just 186 positive, the study found.
I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.
The Washington Post reported over the weekend that
President Trump on Saturday announced plans to hold a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on April 29, marking his 100th day in office.
The White House did not offer additional details about where the rally would take place or what Trump’s focus would be, referring questions to Trump’s campaign apparatus. The campaign listed on its website an event scheduled for that night at 7:30 p.m. in Harrisburg, Pa.
The rally will coincide with the annual White House correspondents’ dinner, which Trump elected not to attend in a break from tradition.
The 100th-day mark has traditionally been an early measuring point for a new president’s effectiveness.
Trump has been eager to show progress on his agenda but so far has had no major legislative victories. In another tweet Saturday, Trump echoed what he told the Associated Press in an interview a day earlier that he plans to make an announcement related to a new tax proposal Wednesday. But he and his aides have offered no details.
Trump’s rally would offer counterprogramming to the annual celebration of political journalism that draws more than 2,000 reporters, celebrities and advertisers to the Washington Hilton. Trump announced in February that he would be the first president in 36 years to skip the dinner. His staff also turned down invitations to be guests at the event.
Trump has had a contentious relationship with the press corps, whom he has labeled “fake news,” and some news organizations have canceled their parties that weekend. But the White House Correspondents’ Association has said the dinner will continue, citing the mission of raising money for student scholarships and promoting the journalism of the White House press corps and other independent journalists.
Comedian Hasan Minhaj of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” will be the featured performer at the dinner. Reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein are scheduled to present the journalism awards.
In a related story…
The Washington Examiner has reported that
A new Washington Post poll that declares President Trump as “the least popular president in modern times,” waits until the second to last paragraph to reveal another tidbit: He’d still beat Hillary Rodham Clinton if the election were held today and in the popular vote, not just Electoral College.
The poll found that Trump’s polls continue to be upside down, with a 42 percent approval and 53 percent disapproval.
Also unchanged: His base still likes him.
It’s not until the second to last paragraph of the long story that it’s shown Clinton would still lose to the president, despite the high disapproval ratings and problems with his first 100 days detailed by the paper. It reads:
The new survey finds 46 percent saying they voted for Clinton and 43 percent for Trump, similar to her two-point national vote margin. Asked how they would vote if the election were held today, 43 say they would support Trump and 40 percent say Clinton.
ABC’s Jonathan Karl tweeted, “According to the ABC/WP poll, among 2016 voters, @realDonaldTrump would beat Hillary Clinton in a rematch — in the popular vote, no less.”
Okay. By now you’re saying,
Wait a minute, KJ. How are these two stories related?
I’m glad you asked.
Trump’s actions concerning his missing the annual snobfest known as the Washington Press Corps Dinner in favor of being with those average Americans, like you and me, who supported him on November 8th, 2016 and still support him today, according to the Washington Post Poll, give testimony to the character of the 45th President of the United States of America.
And, Americans appreciate it.
According to a post published by Gallup.com on January 3rd of this year,
Many more Americans have considered themselves politically conservative than liberal since the early 1990s. That remained the case in 2016, when an average of 36% of U.S. adults throughout the year identified themselves as conservative and 25% as liberal.
You want to know why Americans remain supportive of President Donald J. Trump?
It is because Donald J. Trump is not a Professional Politician.
He is a Citizen Statesman.
He is an American Businessman, a self-made billionaire, who is used to dealing with all kinds of people in the Business World, from high-powered executives like himself to insolent little know-it-alls, who believe themselves to be smarter than he is and are determined to take him down, like the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party known as the Main Stream Media.
So, why are all of us still walking around with a smile on our faces?
We have an AMERICAN President again!
President Donald J. Trump is one of US.
America was formed by men seeking FREEDOM. She grew and prospered because of an indomitable will and spirit forged through the Refiner’s Fire, guided by the common-sense words, inscribed in our Constitution, and administered through a Constitutional Republic. Our nation’s largesse and strength comes through the actions and character of her citizens, not through the usurpation of power by professional politicians, who has long since lost touch with their constituency.
Obama’s attempt to “radically change” our nation into a Third World Barrio was met with resistance, not because of professional politicians, but, because of the defiance of the American People, who love their country.
It was this Defiant Spirit which caused Americans to elect American Entrepreneur and Businessman Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.
And, President Trump recognizes whom he owes his Presidency to….because he possesses that Defiant Spirit, as well.
On November 8th, average Americans proved that America’s Heritage of God and Country is still alive and well in the hearts and minds of the overwhelming majority of the citizens in this country, even those who have dropped out of the workforce.
A President’s role, if he wants to be viewed positively as a world leader, is to work to restore America to a position of strength, both both in foreign and domestic policy.
President-elect Trump understands the mandate that he has been given and is already serving Americans by making deals which will help to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN .
Why should President Trump attend a dinner arranged and hosted by people who literally hate his guts?
Trump committed an unforgivable sin in their eyes.
He had the nerve to defeat their Queen, Hillary Clinton.
The Liberal Main Stream Media are the main instigators of the ongoing National Temper Tantrum, which the Liberals are continuing to throw like a bunch of crybabies with full diapers.
Diapers which are full of the B.S. which the MSM continues to feed them everyday, like pabulum., earning the MSM the title which the President gave them as “Purveyors of Fake News”.
I realize that other Presidents have attended.
But, those were different times.
Times have indeed changed.
President Donald J. Trump actually holds the Main Stream Media accountable for their actions.
And, not even a “Spoonful of Sugar”, taken by the MSM, can help that medicine to go down.
Until He Comes,
