    Trump trolls the media in areas he wants to discuss. They go beserk and the issue is discussed. Whether you like it or not he's playing them like a fiddle.

    It ain't that hard to understand, most of the MSM cable news outlets hate Trump and they'll run story after story if it makes him look bad, purely for political reasons. True or not, immaterial or not, they don't care. And of course you've also got Fox News, which is about the only right-wing leaning outlet that supports what he's doing as far as cable news is concerned. Mostly because what he's doing is working to everybody's benefit. Let's face it, Congress isn't doing much so Trump has pretty much taken the reins and driving the economic wagon so to speak.

    And some of it is because Trump can't keep his big mouth shut; it's his persona, his upbringing that drives him to hit back when somebody takes a shot at him. It's who he is. Personally, I find that aspect of his character to be unfortunate. So he provides loads of material for the left-wingers to go after him on, and there we are: a verbal, childish food fight between the POTUS and the Press.

    A "Paragon of moral virtue" hardly but when I consider his irrational opposition and their blatant hypocrisies ... I figure they need a reminder.. :abgg2q.jpg:

    ere's a news flash! Neither Bill nor Hillary are on ballots this November or two years from now. Claiming the moral high ground with Trump as your Sherpa can be a rough climb.

    Don't fool yourself....

    The only reason it is Trump, Trump, Trump.... in the media,

    IS BECAUSE that is precisely what Trump wants and orchestrates.... he's directing the news topics.... no one else....

    And it is for his purpose, to direct attention from all the other things...

    He seems to think being President of the USA is his little crazy reality TV show that he gets to direct....

    so to misdirect the public to what he wants and away from his abuse of power....

    and it's working.... just as he has planned....

    I believe it's a medical condition called TDS, but that is merely a guess. More likely is the media is out to destroy this presidency. They were all in the pocket of the shrilary, and now that she lost they are trying their darndest to derail everything that trump is doing because he is upending decades of progressive propaganda, and work designed to bring the US down.

    Simple. Two reasons.

    1) Trump is INCREDIBLY divisive. Trumpbots adore him like the ignorant masses at a Nuremberg rally. And much of the rest of the country are rolling their eyes/shaking their heads in disbelief at him (and - to a lesser extent - his Trumpbot minions).

    2) Most people who watch cable news are friggin' dinosaurs...they are OLD. And usually not too bright (with exceptions).
    Here’s the Median Age of the Typical Cable News Viewer
    And old, mid-low IQ people usually don't care much about the future...why would they? And they usually don't much care about stories that mostly effect the young/middle aged. Plus old people tend to have more faith in government than younger people do.
    Anyone with a decent IQ and/or some common sense knows that the last place you should go for news is the television (or even TV news channels on the net). They are profit driven and skewed toward their demographic. In this case...not terribly bright, old people.
    When I watch cable news (which is rarely), it seems like they are talking to 12-14 year old's. They obviously realize their prime viewers are old with mid/low IQ's and they have to talk to them accordingly.

    Bottom line - if you are getting all/most of your news from cable news networks...you are (probably) virtually clueless about the world.

    Unfortunately, you probably think you know the world REALLY well. That is called arrogance leading to ignorance.

    seriously though....

    Trump IS DIRECTING this reality show....

    He is not stupid as many on my side think....

    He measures every word, before he tweets it, and knows the reaction he will get from the audience....

    And most of the time, he is right....and they do precisely what he thinks....
