This is getting a bit out of hand: Chuck Todd fears that President Trump is “delegitimizing” the media while carrying water for the latest Democratic Party conspiracy proffered in order to delegitimize the President. Behold the fully-hatched Great Russian Conspiracy:
The so-called scandal involving former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn is 9/11, Pearl Harbor, Iran-Contra, Watergate, proof of presidential fascism, a cynical money-making scheme, and a pro-Russian spy thriller all rolled into one, according to the increasingly deranged rants of howling left-wingers and their truth-adverse confederates in the mainstream media. – Frontpage
As you may have expected Trump, being Trump, pushed back - bigly:
“This whole Russia scam that you guys” are pushing on people is “so you don’t talk about the real subject which is illegal leaks.”
“The public sees it,” he said. “They see it. They see it’s not fair. You take a look at some of your shows and you see the bias and the hatred. And the public is smart. They understand it.”
“I didn’t do anything for Russia,” he said. “I have done nothing for Russia. Hillary Clinton gave them 20 percent of our uranium. Hillary Clinton did a reset, remember with the stupid plastic button that made us look like a bunch of jerks.”
I think I have a partial solution to morass; we need to create a new color coded system of press credentials. Red for Real News outlets:
And blue for all the other Fake News sources.
Then Sean Spicer could hold two briefings each day: one for reporters with the red credential, where real issues would be addressed, and one, an hour later, for those holding the blue pom poms where all the Fake News of the Day will be discussed amongst themselves. So don’t worry about Sean being over-worked; in the second briefing he doesn’t really have to answer any questions, he just needs to be there to provide the backdrop for the Fake News journalists to mouth their own talking points and accusations ad nauseam.
Optional: those holding blue pom pom credentials can be further sub-divided into “Regular” Fake News and full-bore Yellow Journalism.
Those holding Yellow Journalist credentials would not be allowed to attend both briefings and press conferences but could not speak.
This new color coded credentialing system would make it easy, in future Presidential Press Conferences, for President Trump to know who to call on and who to beat up. I think this will help make future meetings with press run “like a fine tuned machine.” Bigly.
