VIDEO: TRUMP EXPLOSIVE PRESS CONFERENCE AGAINST DISHONEST MEDIA: CNN ELEVATED INTO ‘VERY FAKE NEWS’, MEDIA DISHONESTY OUT OF CONTROL
( New York Post ) President Trump took his message “straight to the people” Thursday in a wide-ranging and at times contentious press conference that covered Russian relations, leaks to the media, immigration policy, the final fate of ObamaCare and a multitude of other subjects.
Trump complained at the White House presser that he “inherited a mess” from President Obama, but nevertheless pledged to fulfill his campaign promises.
“I’m here again to take my message straight to the people,” Trump said. “As you know, our administration inherited many problems across government, and across the economy.
“To be honest, I inherited a mess — at home and abroad — a mess,” said the president, who has served for less than a month, adding that “ISIS has spread like cancer. Another mess I inherited.”
Trump also used his nearly half-hour introductory statement to take a stinging shot at the press corps.
“The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people,” said Trump.
“The press is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control,” he added.
The president dismissed reports of chaos within his administration. “It is the exact opposite. This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine,” he claimed.
The president even touted the crowds expected at an upcoming weekend rally in Florida. “I just heard that the crowds are massive,” he said of the event scheduled for Saturday.
Speaking of his campaign promises, Trump pledged to deal with the drug problem ailing America, claiming that “drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.”
Trump also said he’d issue a new executive order related to a travel ban next week — and knocked the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals for blocking his last one. “That circuit is in chaos, that circuit is frankly in turmoil,” he said.
“I keep my campaign promises,” Trump said.
“There’s never been a presidency that has done so much in so short a period of time,” he added.
Trump v ‘fake news’ CNN: the rematch. President spars with its White House correspondent – then rebrands it ‘VERY fake news’
Trump called on CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta, whom he lambasted at a previous press conference, during a performance heavily laced with attacks on the ‘dishonest media.’
‘Just because of the attack of fake news and attacking our network, I just want to ask you, sir…’ Acosta began as he caught Trump’s attention.
Trump responded that, ‘I’m changing it from fake news, though,’ before announcing he would call the network ‘very fake news.’
Ouch! CNN cuts off Bernie Sanders for CNN fake news joke: “Maybe he was watching CNN fake news. What do you think? It was a joke!”
( Gateway Pundit ) CNN interviewed Bernie Sanders on Friday and asked him about General Flynn’s talks with Russia before taking office. They played a clip of President Trump saying he was unaware of the reports on General Flynn and asked Bernie Sanders if he thinks that’s a problem.
Bernie responded, “Well I don’t know. Maybe he was watching CNN fake news. What do you think? It was a joke!”
CNN’s Erin Burnett responded awkwardly saying, “I, I know it was a joke…I’m saying you don’t buy what he said obviously”
At this point Bernie Sanders couldn’t hear the CNN anchor and he kept asking, “Are we on?”
CNN is hurting with fake news label. CNN host Chris Cuomo claims being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the n-word for journalists.’ Hey CNN, let the people decide if you’re fake news or not. Unfortunately, after your pathetic coverage of 2016 election and slobbering behavior during Obama administration, we are not blind, your label of fake news has basis.
BUSINESS INSIDER: CNN host Chris Cuomo said on Thursday that he believes hurling the “fake news” insult at journalists is similar to when individuals use racial slurs against minorities.
“I see being called ‘fake news’ as the equivalent of the n-word for journalists,” Cuomo said on SiriusXM, “the equivalent of calling an Italian any of the ugly words that people have for that ethnicity.”
“That’s what fake news is to a journalist,” the CNN host continued, adding, “It’s an ugly insult and you better be right if you’re going to charge a journalist with lying on purpose.”
Earlier in the day, Cuomo said being called “fake news” is “like an ethnic disparagement” for journalists, but he fell short at the time of comparing it to the n-word.
FACT CHECK: Was the Statue of Liberty Originally a Muslim Woman? No…THE SCULPTOR BARTHOLDI WAS INSPIRED BY COLOSSUS OF RHODES
FAKE NEWS! STATUE OF LIBERTY WAS NOT INSPIRED BY A MUSLIM WOMAN. THE FRENCH SCULPTOR BARTHOLDI WAS INSPIRED BY COLOSSUS OF RHODES:
- Bartholdi’s idea of building the Egyptian statue had been inspired by the Colossus of Rhodes ( One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World destroyed by Muslims in 653 AD )
- The Statue of Liberty originally functioned as a lighthouse
Statue of Liberty sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi:
“At that time my Statue of Liberty did not exist, even in my imagination, and the only resemblance between the drawing that I submitted to the Khedive and the statue now in New York’s beautiful harbor is that both held a light aloft. Now how is a sculptor to make a statue which is to serve the purpose of a lighthouse without making it hold the light in the air?”
FrontPageMag: A popular meme on some sites is that the Statue of Liberty was “originally a Muslim woman”. Like a lot of viral memes, this is a myth.
The a grain of truth to the story is that the meme picked up on the interesting historical footnote that one of the earlier projects of Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi was a large woman holding up a torch and symbolizing Egypt’s progress. The giant statue would have been titled, “Egypt or Progress Carrying the Light to Asia”.
Since Egypt’s ruler had no money, the project went nowhere.
Bartholdi at the time was somewhat obsessed with Ancient Egypt. It was ancient Egypt that interested him rather than Islam. The statue was meant to celebrate Egyptian civilization rather than Islam.
In any case the idea that “Egypt” became the Statue of Liberty is a myth. How do we know that?
Here’s what Bartholdi had to say about it, “At that time my Statue of Liberty did not exist, even in my imagination, and the only resemblance between the drawing that I submitted to the Khedive and the statue now in New York’s beautiful harbor is that both held a light aloft. Now how is a sculptor to make a statue which is to serve the purpose of a lighthouse without making it hold the light in the air?”
The Statue of Liberty originally functioned as a lighthouse.
The Colossus of Rhodes, as depicted in an artist’s impression of 1880.
In 653, an Arab force under Muslim caliph Muawiyah I captured Rhodes, and according to The Chronicle of Theophanes the Confessor, the statue was melted down and sold to a Jewish merchant of Edessa who loaded the bronze on 900 camels. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossus_of_Rhodes )

FROM Gateway Pundit: OMG! FAKE NEWS and CIA Fell for Incredible “Golden Shower”Fable about Trump
Buzzfeed, Cosmopolitan, and CNN got played by 4Chan.
According to 4Chan these documents were created by a 4Chan user and sent to anti-Trumper Rick Wilson knowing he would act on this tip:
4Chan discussed this tonight:
** Political hacks emailed documents to #NeverTrump jackass Rick Wilson about Trump making people piss on a bed.
** Rick Wilson thought it was real and gave it to leftists at the CIA
** The CIA of the USA put this in their official classified intelligence report on Russian involvement in the US election
** Donald Trump and Obama were both given private sessions with the CIA to discuss this.
** The CIA concluded that the Russians plan to blackmail Trump with this story we made up
The 4Chan users then link to this:
So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it.
They still believe it. Guys, they’re truly fucking desperate – there’s no remaining Trump scandal that’s credible.
Then there’s this…
If these journalists were real journalists and not fake journalists then they would have found that the original documents did not conform to CIA or UK intelligence requirements.
US or UK intelligence would never say “CONFIDENTIAL / SENSITIVE SOURCE.”
The Trump-Russia intel document headers are “CONFIDENTIAL / SENSITIVE SOURCE” and the source is allegedly ex-MI6.
The US and UK don’t use that header in ANY sensitive material.
