It can’t be just me.
I can’t be the only American who throws their hands up in frustration each time I hear some liberal talking head bloviate about the horrors of the Trump administration.
Whether it’s Maxine Waters (D-CA) calling for impeachment (without a crime), or Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) flip-flopping and going from shaming FBI Director Comey to criticizing Trump’s firing of Comey, or Chuck Schumer (D-NY) threatening to stonewall a new FBI Director (what idiocy) or if it’s Adam Schiff (D-CA) arguing that while there is no evidence of Russia collusion there could be evidence… one day. It’s all foolishness. None of it is of any substance and none of it matters a whit to the actual concerns and issues our nation is dealing with.
Conservative pundit and Queen of Facebook Live, Kathy Barnette, shared some very similar thoughts on the subject just this morning.
But it’s not just me and Kathy who find ourselves dismayed that liberals are attacking every thought, word, or action that comes out of the White House – it’s Americans too. How can we tell? Because Trump’s approval ratings haven’t budged – not one iota – over the course of the last month or so.
Even more amazing, and perhaps something that the national media should notice before they lose any more viewers, is that the vast majority of Americans don’t care that Comey was fired.
NBC recently published a poll that they said showed President Trump’s decision to fire Comey was unpopular – but what it actually showed was that American’s “don’t care” about the decision at all.
While NBC titled the story “Just 29 Percent Approve of Trump’s Firing of James Comey,” the reality was that a full 1/3 of the respondents didn’t actually care. And only 38% disagreed with the firing. In fact NBC probably should have gone with a headline like “America evenly split on Comey Firing,” but instead they chose to push their narrative and make it sound as though America was up in arms about the decision to fire Comey.
In fact, if you dig a little deeper into the poll numbers you’ll notice that the President’s approval rating essentially remained static which is amazing considering the amount of negative coverage the Comey fiasco inspired. Gallup actually found similar results in a poll they conducted – 39% approved of the firing, 46% disapproved, and 15% don’t care. President Trump’s approval rating also stayed the same in spite of all of the negative coverage. Either way, more Americans approve or don’t care about the Comey firing, than disapprove… but you’d never know it by watching the national media.
I think what we are seeing here is a national media that is prepared to do everything they can to help the Democrat Party survive. If that means pushing stories that Americans don’t care about in an effort to pursue a particular narrative about President trump and the GOP… so be it. Don’t be surprised if you keep reading, hearing, seeing stories in the news that make you scratch your head and wonder “who cares,” because it’s all a part of the game the media is playing to undermine President Trump and derail the GOP agenda.
