Trump administration gets things done in spite of a worthless mainstream media

“The press can claim Trump has a low approval rating, but they have a lower approval rating than him.” ~ Erick Erickson
Well, things a Trump administration said it was gonna do, it's doing them!

Within the first day on Friday, work has definitely begun...



...then throughout the weekend and rolling into today, progress continues...


Not to mention at least three proposals so far to replace Obamacare are being discussed: Paul Ryan's A Better Way Plan, Tom Price's Empowering Patients First Act, and Bill Cassidy's Patient Freedom Act. So much for Democrat's 'Republicans have no ideas' narrative.

So what's the mainstream media focused on? You guessed it...
Erickson: Today, Donald Trump is going to withdraw the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership and order a review of NAFTA. Yesterday, he signed an order reinstating the Mexico City policy that prohibits federal funds from funding overseas abortions. There were also some substantive, but secret meetings on the Supreme Court nominee and the list was narrowed. In Georgia, Florida, and Alabama dozens died and thousands were left homeless because of terrible storms. While all of this was happening the American press corps was focused on men and women wearing vagina hats marching in the streets and on the size of crowds. At least Donald Trump got more women exercising in one day than Michelle Obama did in eight years. ...

The American press corps really does not deserve the liberty it enjoys because it has used it recklessly, with open bias against one side, and has abandoned all pretenses of fairness. Maybe having Donald Trump relentlessly pound the crap out of the press corps for four years will finally knock some sense into the circle of jerks who make up the political press. There are so many threats to freedom and so many troubling things coming and the press would rather trade insults with the President and openly cheer on his opposition.
And Donald Trump will keep winning because of this one little thing.

Reversing Obama's executive fiat will be a grueling task indeed...but chiseling away one day at a time is certainly a step in the right direction.

  1. I'm praying that the days of the media embellishing and glorifying news to create higher ratings and thus big advertisers is over and I'm so thankful. My short, yet eye-opening time in television made me turn the news off completely. I never felt I was getting the whole story let alone the truth and I'll be darned if I was going to contribute to it. It felt like a non-stop advertisement guided toward making me so afraid and sick that I felt compelled to buy what I was supposed to watch till they "came right back". It's nothing more than the enquirer now. I said the other they that they should make media non-profit like PBS. My friend at PBS in Chicago wouldn't dare embellish or glorify anything, she'd lose her job in a hot second. She's got more integrity than that and feels blessed to have her position. I think that's the biggest problem. There's no accountability, just sales. BTW... I love this article B-I-L! xoxo

  2. Haha, thanks, Laurie. Yeah, I turned off broadcast news years ago & started doing my own truth mining. It's out there, even if mediaites & politicos don't want you to know.
