The Main Stream Media attempted to intimidate the wrong American, yesterday.
Newsbusters.org reported that
On Monday afternoon, reporters stationed inside Trump Tower begged Martin Luther King III to attack President-elect Trump over tweets concerning Democratic Congressman John Lewis (Ga.) following a meeting on the day honoring King’s father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
King began by stating that he and Trump had “a very constructive meeting” with most of the focus on voting rights, but reporters quickly shifted the topic to Lewis.
ABC correspondent Tom Llamas snuck in the first pathetic question, trying to bait King into blasting Trump: “Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action?”
King responded by stating Lewis is, like “many others,” a “bridge builder” but added that “in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides.”
With the press corps not satisfied, an unidentified male reporter trotted out this second-hand claim by a woman he said he saw last week at Trump Tower:
“Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white?”
Once again, King didn’t take the bait as he ruled “certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans” and he’ll “continue to evaluate that” throughout Trump’s presidency.
While Lewis has been in the spotlight, CNN’s Jim Acosta has been as well, following his well-publicized tussle with Trump. Mediaite claimed that Acosta proceeded to “grill” King with this question, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth:
“Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action.”
“No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward,” answered King.
Here’s the relevant portion of the transcript from Martin Luther King III’s January 16 press conference at Trump Tower:
MARTIN LUTHER KING III: Let me briefly not just reiterate but state that we did have a very constructive meeting. The seminal right of the modern civil rights movement was the right to vote. My father fought so diligently for it, certainly Congressman John Lewis and many others, Hosea Williams fought for as well. It is very clear that the system is not working at its maximum, and through an op-ed that you may have seen, we provided at least a solution to begin to address a broken voting system. That was the dialogue, most of the dialogue that we talked about constructively. We believe we provided a solution that at least will give everyone an I.D.
TOM LLAMAS: Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action?
KING: First of all I think that in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides and I think that at some point, and I am, as John Lewis and many others are, a bridge builder. The goal is to bring America together and Americans. We are a great nation, but we must become a greater nation, and what my father represented — my mother represented through her life, what I hope that I’m trying to do is always bring people together.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE REPORTER: Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white?
KING: Well certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans. He said that over and over again, and I think that we will continue to evaluate that. I think that the nation supports — I believe that’s his intent, but I think also we have to consistently engage with pressure, public pressure. It doesn’t happen automatically. My father and his team understood that, did that, and I think that Americans are prepared to do that.
JIM ACOSTA: Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action.
KING: No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward. We can’t stay on — I mean, people are literally probably dying. We need to be talking about how do we feed people, how do we clothe people, how do we create the best education system. That’s what we need to be focused on.
LLAMAS: On this day, what would your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump? What do you think your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump?
KING: This is the final answer I’m going to have because I’m going to reiterate what I just said. I think my father would be concerned about the fact that there are 50 million fact there are 50 or 60 million people living in poverty and somehow, we’ve got to create the climate for all boats to be lifted. In America, with a multi-trillion dollar economy — $20 trillion economy almost, it’s insanity we have poor people in this nation. That’s unacceptable and when we work together, we know we can roll up our sleeves. There’s nothing we as Americans can’t do. Thank you very much.
As I have written in previous posts, America’s Main Stream Media abandoned their role as objective observers and reporters of the news a long time ago.
With the overwhelming majority of those in the MSM being Liberals, they no longer view their role in American Society as being simply news reporters. They view themselves as being advocates…Liberal activists with a camera and a microphone, whose job is to stir up trouble for those who do not follow in lockstep behind the Democratic Elite.
As shown in the above article, they are not above continuing and exacerbating the racial division which America has experienced during the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
Just like the out-of-touch Hollywood Celebrities, the infantile cry baby wannabe anarchists of #DisruptJ20, and the anti-Constitution Democratic Congressmen like John Lewis, America’s Main Stream Media are in the middle of an epic meltdown triggered by the legal election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.
As has been affirmed to me time and time again during my surfing of the web, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals, including those in the Main Stream Media, are living in a state of denial.
They respond as if you have told them that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when you inform them that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 8-year reign of their fallen messiah, King Barack The First and the defeat of their political party’s hand-picked successor, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
This salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.
Well, that plus the fact, as President-elect Trump has so eloquently put it time and again, THEY ARE A BUNCH OF LIARS.
Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.
And, in response to the fact that average Americans do not believe a thing that they report, the MSM has decided that their role is to move from being objective reporters to being the unashamed Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, pushing its progressive and disruptive agenda forward BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
Hence, the attempted intimidation of Martin Luther King III yesterday, in a desperate attempt to produce the results that those “journalists” wanted.
King III refused to be intimidated, just as President-elect Trump has refused to allow them to report lies about him.
So, with average Americas receiving our news from alternate sources and a man being inaugurated as President of the United States in 3 days who refuses to play their games, that leaves the Democratic Sycophants of the Main Stream Media S.O.L.
…And, you know what than means.
The Liberals’ National Temper Tantrum will not end any time soon.
Pass the popcorn.
Until He Comes,
