President Trump has had enough of the fake news media attacking him and his presidency, and he took a Tuesday press conference into rare territory to get his point across.
From Trump Tower in New York City, where a number of radical leftist protesters had gathered last night, Trump spoke to the press once again in the wake of the horrific Weekend War of Charlottesville, Virginia. After the dust had settled in the quaint town, three were dead and Americans across the nation were looking to blame someone.
Obviously, the presence of neo-Nazis, white nationalists, and white supremacists immediately charged the situation with a bevy of emotional baggage. Trump’s first statement on the situation, which came on Saturday night, was carefully calculated and quick, likely in hopes of defusing the situation through calm.
The liberal “resistance” to the President immediately declared that it wasn’t “enough”.
When the President took to the press again on Monday night, he was greeted with an air of “too little, too late” from the mainstream media who are actively seeking to destroy him. This sentiment was exacerbated by the radical left who spent much of the weekend defacing and destroying historical monuments in protest of the events of Charlottesville; much like ISIS and Al Qaeda have done in museums across the ancient Middle East.
Today it was Trump’s turn to speak off the cuff regarding the media’s constant and consistent bias against him. Some of his more memorable bits of speech from today’s engagement are below:
“This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s [statue is] coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself, when does it stop?”
“George Washington was a slave-owner. Was George Washington a slave-owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down—excuse me. Are we going to take down—are we going to take down statues of George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him?”
“You’re changing history. You’re changing culture, and you had people—and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”
What many will take away from this press conference is something else entirely, thanks to the mainstream media.
Yes, the President was combative, but that is nothing new. We elected Trump precisely because he wasn’t a business-as-usual Washington insider. We elected Trump to take the media and the establishment by the horns, and lead them to slaughter if necessary.
Now that he’s doing precisely that, the nation is losing their mind.
