Trump Chumps: Media echoes Iraq War cheerleading by praising Trumps empty speech

"The mainstream media is falling back into an old pattern of enabling the worst possible presidential behavior (and fawning over any Repugnant in the WH or Congress) by praising Donald Trump’s disastrous address to Congress."

Trump’s speech was packed to the gills with lies, exaggerations, xenophobia, and all manner of falsehoods. Few of the lines read off a teleprompter — which he repeatedly attacked President Obama and Hillary Clinton for using — had any truth, and even when not lying, Trump was touting ideas and policies designed to hurt the most vulnerable communities in America.

It was a bad speech, unworthy of the office he holds.

But the mainstream press is apparently tired of reporting on an unpopular president with an unpopular legislative agenda who has failed to get the basic daily functions of the federal bureaucracy staffed at a reasonable level (though it has plenty of billionaires, men, and cronies), let alone delivering on what the country needs.

Because Trump spoke in uncharacteristically measured tones, the media has decided to fall over themselves in a rush to praise him, largely ignoring the actual substance — or lack thereof — of his words.

We have been here before.

2. Excellent article.

 

Amazing how, despite Trump's constant attacks on their profession, the press continues to lower the bar for this inarticulate, know-nothing idiot.
