Welcome to President Trump’s crazy town! There is a new Sheriff in town folks! No longer “President-Elect but now the big bald bodacious era has begun at a frenetic pace and I can safely say Washington DC and the Media power structure must be having migraines! I just hope we won’t need to bring in Priests, Nuns, Reverends and Rabbis to perform exorcisms on the Dinosaur Media and their cohorts in the houses of power!
We will take an 180-degree pivot here and quote the media reaction to the January 20th, 2017 Inauguration of the great Pugilist from my former hometown New York City. For all liberty loving Americans, let us do a small victory lap as we indulge ourselves in pictures and sounds from the day America took a turning page in a forward looking and forward thinking vision! It’s a mixed bag of goodies and food for thought:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
The Media Naysayers, starting randomly at the alphabet channels, commenting on the Inauguration of Americas 45th President and 58th inaugural ceremony since our founding Fathers laid the groundwork for this great and beautiful nation we call home!
Chris Mathews from MSNBC walk of fame; Picture this, ex-President Obama is in flight over White House heading to Andrews air base on Airforce-1 for the last time a touchy scene to behold and dear Chris goes on to say “When President Trump said America first, it was not just a racial thing, I mean more Hitlerian background to it” You have got to be kidding me, right? Nope let’s continue the buzz.
Rachel Maddow another interesting smart caricature from MSNBC:
“This was a workman-like speech and he (President Trump) went through it quickly. It was dark and Militant, the crime, the gangs, the drugs, this American Carnage, disrepair, decay and you can’t imagine an outgoing President giving a speech like that! The new president repeating that our guiding principle is America first, America first has dark echoes! America first means something else in this country, started by Rich business people back in the day to keep us from world war II and didn’t care about the rise of Nazi Germany and is connected to anti-Semitism is hard to hear” And the Anchor lady continues to chime! Journalistic gem! What kind of Gem? I’m still scratching my head to piece some jigsaw puzzle into a coherent logical thesis!
Jack Tapper of the famous fake news network CNN: As he interviewed Chuck Schumer house minority leader Senator of New York city, who does not shy away from the Television even when he wakes up in the morning to have a bowl of cereal, he demands an interview! “I wanna ask about your appearance at the inaugural, and I don’t know what you could hear because I was farther away from President Trump than you were, but there was a lot of booing! Let’s run an excerpt of your speech!” Chuck Schumer to his egomaniacal credit claimed America should have given him a standing ovation for a brilliant soliloquy of identity politics speech in front of a raucous Washington Square crowd! Does Chuck Schumer still wish that his mommy tells him every morning how handsome and smarter than all the kids on the block within a 1000 mile radius? Just a rhetorical question for the audience at large? I stand to be corrected if I’m right even when I’m wrong!
Chuck Todd of NBC: “The speech was surprisingly divisive for an inaugural address and when elected as an outsider and a populist channeling what was the real anger out there among his supporters it’s tough to both a unifier and a carrier of populism! It’s gonna play well with his folks and the crowd” It’s almost like he was insulting all the presidents that were sitting right next to him!” I had to paraphrase some of Chucky Todd’s commentary to make it safe for listening and viewing pleasure after you click on the preceding links and eavesdrop on the venerable NBC Anchor dude!
Bob Scheifer the wise old dude from CBS sunshine channel, who was actually present at the inauguration of President Honest Abe Lincoln and since the invention of the television he has attended about 14 presidential inaugurations! He’s got some serious credentials no kidding! “The President’s speech was totally lacking in grace, as RuthMarcuss of the Washington Post had written that morning of the inauguration, that President Trump sunk to the occasion” “Beyond the tone of the speech I think the content of Trump’s speech was disturbing, he was not talking about building a wall on the southern border he was talking about a wall around America and putting a top on it!
George Stephanopoulos from ABC; “So much disappointment for the Clintons when Donald Trump upset them in victory!” highlighted the pained expression on Secretary Hillary Clintons face as she attended the inauguration! A classy unyielding foe if I may add to the drama that we love to see play out in these great plains. Wherein all friends and foes put their partisan rancor aside and unite for a peaceful transition of power before we all go back to our “life as usual” or life spectacularly unusual depending how energetic your lifestyle. For George Stephanopoulos, I give him credit as an unabashed Clintonista and long term money contributor to the couple who gave him access to media star power when he served the young sleek smooth ex-President Bill Clinton white house as communications guru back in the 1990’s.
The Naysayers list could be endless. Therefore let us jump the hoop onto the other side, the somewhat positive forward thinking Trump Supporters sparsely sprinkled in the Media landscape. Which by the way is fully occupied by so many Dinosaurs oblivious to the incoming meteor shower approaching mother earth at lightning speed:
John Dickerson a CBS political Director Anchor guy gave an honest opinion for a media elite guy very impressive! President Trump used his inaugural speech as a negotiating posture and not a speech to unite and mend the nation’s wounds! Dickerson’s plausible theory on Trump’s agenda is encapsulated in these following words; I have a movement and I will use the power of that movement to force you to do what I want ! I kinda like the sound of that theory, maybe a page right out of “The Art of the Deal?” Perhaps? Interesting fodder!
Jesse Walters World a hilarious “back of the book” segment as part of Bill O’Reillys ” highly rated cable news show! This you must click and watch the attached link, seeing is believing that’s all I can say about this guy who is as cool as they come! He does a Jay Leno style street interviews of regular folks on “everyday street America”
Martha McCullum the beautiful foxy lady from Fox News: accompanied by sidekicks, Chris Stirewalt and Howard Kurtz
“Covering this story of an incredible man we have seen come up from a family in Queens New York, a real estate mogul and Mr. Apprentice and all that good stuff about the guy a truly modern American Story! He laid the marker out there for entire establishment to shape up or ship out!” Howard Kurtz best chip in line: “If Donald Trump got a honeymoon from the media I must have taken a nap and missed it because there’s a lot of negativity to the way this President is being covered!” By the way, President Trump as of this blog writing has only been on the job “officially” 4 days! And he has certainly received a “whole lot of load” or unloading of media frenzy maybe we can call it “Trump Derangement Syndrome” a new phenomenal auto-immune disease that afflicts the pre-fontal Cortex part of the brain, especially if you are a purveyor of so-called Journalism in the Dinosaur media landscape! Trade carefully future journalist wannabes it’s a contagious ailment!
Sean Hannity a salt and pepper unabashed Republican and early onboard Donald Trump supporter extraordinaire! Side kicked by Dr. Sebestain Gorka a national Security expert of whom if you read his books your hair would stand on its back at just how somber and dark the world threats are to our fragile federalist liberal democracy. Sean is Mr “big stuff” but plays the humble small potatoes game, though a very good guy who’s intellectually honest and that says a lot compared to other anchor dudes in the Media! “President mentioned hot button issues in his inauguration speech such as Radical Islamic Terrorism and economy in shambles” No more politically correct speech patterns as in the past eight years in which the past administration could not name the enemy we are facing or fighting!
Greg Gutfield is the ultimate funny guy with a sharp wit. I can see myself making a cameo on his show as it has such intellectual depth it’s like the dense Amazon forest and superman works overtime helping clear pathways for mere mortals! He opened his monolog by highlighting the media meltdown after finding out that Donald Trump had won the election. Watching all the hysteria and thinking back how long the last 8 years have been biting a bitter pill swallowed with arsenic water. It serves in a way like a cold meal on an island called revenge! seeing all the meltdown happen before our very own eyes! Losing to a confident righteously braggadocious formidable foe is quite a painful pill to swallow in a world full of emotional thinkers!
Jeanine Pirro another Foxy Lady who was a former Westchester New York Prosecutor and a no-nonsense sharp-tongued alpha lady who won’t shy away from a fight on the intellectual battlefield! When it comes to concise delivery she’s worth the popcorn while watching the “boob-tube” She is also a personal long-time friend and ally of the 45th President Donald Trump! Here is a slice of one of her relentlessly rich and colorful opening statement: “now you know the only way to make actual change in this country is not only have the Moxy and the guts to do it, but also to not care what the drive-by Media and the haters think of it. To make a change will take someone who doesn’t obsess, put fingers to the wind, someone who doesn’t give a damn, about what the naysayers or chattering classes say he is someone who is focused and understand what it takes to get the job done! And he understands because he has been up and down and smart enough to get back up again, But there will be bumps on the road. He understands that changing the bureaucracy and the Washington Machine is not for the faint of heart. He understands that in order to do what has to be done he can have no fear! Is she preaching to a choir? Interjection; Amen! Amen sister Foxy lady. She continues, “Donald Trump will be the biggest change agent in the history of the United States! Donald Trump’s speech reflected exactly what Americans voted for; direct and straight forward with no need for soaring poetry, only straight talk to his movement the people’s grassroots movement! enough said!
At the risk of self-indulgence, my favorite parts about the inauguration was watching the Presidents beautiful boy Baron Trump just being a typical 10-year-old and then seeing the Trump family sons and girls and the powerful ex-presidents and dignitaries brought the whole occasion a momentary pause for quiet confident celebration of this great American transition of power, smooth full of vim vigour and a tinge of victorian decorum and royalty attached to the “festivities.” For a brief moment it was refreshing to see the Obamas handle themselves with exceptional class and dignity befitting of the grand occasion and seeing them fly off airforce-1 for the last time, must have been a relief, a huge sigh of relief! Hope they get some sleep and stay on vacation for a year or more! Happy Golfing Mr. President and don’t be in a hurry to come back to the lion’s den!
Now that a new era is here time to sharpen your forks and knives folks! Make sure your garage and basement pitchforks are sharpened and ready for use at a moments notice! As the battle royale has just begun! The honeymoon lasted until midnite January 21st and we should all gear up for the intellectual skirmished that awaits us all around the next curve!
