It seems to me that the mainstream media has reached another new low in its reporting on President Trump. In articles (not editorials) throughout the mainstream media, they say things like “Trump fraudulently claimed” or “Trump lied.” The New York Times used that language. “Trump Repeats Lie About Popular Vote in Meeting With Lawmakers” is a headline from the New York Times. Normally they make someone out as a liar by pretending to be neutral, but then quoting from an authoritative source to demonstrate the falsehood of the claim.
The media refuses to understand Trump at all. Trump is a bad liar. He only says what he believes, but is prone to exaggeration, sometimes outrageous exaggeration, or at least changing numbers by a factor of ten is deemed outrageous by the mainstream media. Of course it’s prole that Trump does that. I wish we could have a president with the demeanor of Mitt Romney but with Trump’s policies on immigration and Trump’s willingness to stand up to the leftwing media and political correctness.
So on Tuesday, the press demanded of Trump’s press secretary, “if Trump really believes that there were so many illegal votes, why isn’t he investigating it?” Well Trump called their bluff and is now calling for an investigation.
A victory indeed for Trump, even though there is no way that Trump will find three million illegal votes. However, If you look hard enough, I am sure you will find that there were some illegal votes, and Trump will say he was right, and then there will be impetus for election security laws. Democrats hate such laws because they know that illegal votes always benefit the Democrats.
Remember when Obama was asked a question by a Hispanic interviewer in which she poses a scenario where an illegal alien votes, and Obama refuses to say that’s illegal and instead answers a different question while the interviewer nods in rapturous agreement, creating the impression that Obama is giving the OK for illegal aliens to vote? Not only did the MSM ignore that wink-and-nod in favor of lawbreaking by Obama, they attacked those who criticized Obama for it.
