If you were to take a gander at the primetime news coverage last night, the television media really, really wants you to think that Donald Trump is headed for handcuffs.
In the wake of an ostensibly bad day for a number of former Trump acquaintances, the liberal media did their best to stir up the emotions of the nation. They pushed, as they always do, some version of the story in which President Trump is now going to be removed from office, or possibly thrown in jail, over an actions taken by his former lawyer – a known and admitted liar – who claims that a “candidate for federal office” directed him in those actions.
Michael Cohen, the former Trump lawyer in question, wouldn’t even mention the President by name in court; an oddity glossed over by the media at large.
Now, the President is responding to the “news” in typical Trump fashion, with the wit and brevity of a man who has no concerns whatsoever about his legal safety.
On Tuesday, Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer officially and dramatically “flipped” on him, pleading guilty to, among other charges, knowingly violating campaign finance law at the direction of a federal candidate (read Trump) by paying a total of $280,000 in “hush money” to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels with the “principal purpose of influencing an election.”
After conspicuously not mentioning the bombshell guilty plea at a rally in West Virginia Tuesday night, Trump finally addressed the issue on Twitter Wednesday morning in true Trump style.
“If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!” he wrote. And that’s it.
This sort of assured, confident tone hilarity is exactly the sort of sentiment needed at this time of utter turmoil being cultivated by the corporate television media.
Remember, folks: The media wishes to divide us on whatever issues they can. That conflict creates higher ratings for them and, in turn, more revenue. Don’t be a pawn in their game.
