The mainstream media, as they often do, missed the most important story of the day yesterday focusing on hyperbolic handshake analysis.
U.S. President Donald Trump met Friday with his Russian counterpart, President Vladimir Putin, during a private meeting in the shadow of the G20 Summit Hamburg, Germany. The weight of the encounter was certainly not lost on the mainstream media who, for months, have been attempting to further the asinine conspiracy theory concocted by Hillary Clinton that Donald Trump received assistance in winning the 2016 election from the Kremlin. While no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government officials has been discovered, that hasn’t stopped the wildly speculative media from diving headfirst into speculation and innuendo.
When the two superpower Presidents met yesterday, the first thing that the liberal media did was lambast Trump’s cordial nature, accusing the President of showing far too much civility in his handshake with Putin. While the rubble of CNN is still smoking, those left at the helm of the doomed network are still slinging arrows in Trump’s general direction, even though the man has made literally billions of dollars in business…where the handshake is king.
This handshake was the main piece of “journalism” in the mainstream media yesterday regarding Trump’s meeting with Putin, yet the real story of their rendezvous was Trump’s insistence on pressing the issue of election interference with Putin, and the monumental ceasefire agreement they came to regarding Syria.
“On Friday, as President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the U.S. State Department confirmed the two sides had reached a ceasefire agreement in Syria. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called it, ‘the first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria.’
“’We spent a very, very lengthy period on Syria. With a great amount of detail on the agreement, we concluded today but also where we go,’ Tillerson said of the meeting between Trump and Putin.
“CBS News and the Associated Press report that Jordan and Israel, which border on southern Syria, are also part of the plan. Jordanian Minister of Media Affairs Mohammed Momani announced on Friday that the ceasefire would go into effect at noon local time on Sunday, July 9.
“It remains to be seen whether the Syrian military, rebel forces, and assorted terrorist gangs will honor the agreement. The track record of previous ceasefires has not been encouraging. One hopeful sign noted by CBS/AP is that the Syrian government has already announced a four-day unilateral suspension of combat operations, which will end just before the U.S.-Russia deal goes into effect.
“The new ceasefire announcement is considered separate from the ‘de-escalation’ plans Russia has brokered with Iran and Turkey through peace talks in Kazakhstan, which pointedly excluded the United States. The latest round of talks in Kazakhstan this week fell short of producing a final ceasefire plan because a few of the parties actually shooting at each other in Syria seemed willing to sign on. A Russian-Turkish initiative to deploy troops from Kazakhstan or Kyrgyzstan to monitor Syrian de-escalation zones also appears to have fizzled.”
The handshake, however, stole the headlines for much of the leftist mainstream media.
This has been par for the course in the liberally-controlled fake news genre for months, as CNN and others are tripping over themselves in order to bash the President of the United States and the leader of the free world. The faulty democratic “resistance” movement has infiltrated these media outlets, and it has completely warped our nation’ ability to tout journalistic integrity. Trump worked out a ceasefire in Syria, one of the planet’s deadliest locales, and all that the phony media outlets want to talk about is how many times Trump touched Putin.
