Donald Trump Ponders The Finer Points Of "Fake", "Fraud" & "Presidential"

Posted July 03, 2017

"I mean, they're phonies", Trump said, according to the recording.

The president's most recent tweetstorm involved his rants against the hosts of a morning news show on MSNBC, a low-rated, far left-leaning network that has seen a bit of a resurrection only because of the president.

This morning, the president of the United States used his favorite media platform for addressing the public to remind us of just how little respect he has for women - especially women in the press.

But we feel Trump's social media bursts are damaging his agenda and his ability to work even with the Republican Congress he so fortunately has.

The US President came under severe criticism for his tweet about MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski in which the President attacked Brzezinski's looks and Scarborough's intelligence. "It's about time!" he tweeted, referring to an article that the cable news channel retracted, that claimed Congress was investigating links between Trump's administration and a Russian investment fund.

He has ordered the construction of a wall on the southern border and prioritized funds in his budget to begin its construction. The bill imposing harsher prison sentences on deportees who re-enter the United States is known as " Kate's Law ".

"First of all", Colbert continued, "someone bleeding badly at your door and you say "no"?"

Mr Trump's latest attack came on the heels of a response by the two hosts yesterday, where they questioned the mental health of the US President and accused him of trying to exert pressure on them over unfavourable coverage.

"Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses".

On the "Morning Joe" show, Brzezinski, a daughter of former White House national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, said her main concern was how such behavior affects the country.

NY magazine's Gabriel Sherman reports that according to "three sources familiar with the private conversations", Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner was in contact with Scarborough about a then-upcoming Enquirer story about Scarborough's not-yet-public relationship with Brzezinski. "My mom told me to get it done", she explained. The tabloid specialises in scandalous stories about celebrities and has been supportive of Mr Trump.

Amid the standoff, Robert LaVoy Finicum and several other protesters left the wildlife refuge to drive to another location. Finicum, who was armed with a loaded 9mm handgun, was fatally shot by state police troopers, the office concluded.

The TV host expanded on her comments in an interview with InStyle, insinuating that First Lady Melania Trump - who is said to be working on an anti-cyberbullying campaign - wanted out of her marriage.

The move would surely please Trump, who in 2013 repeatedly used social media to boost the idea that Pecker should run the company.

The American Media-owned magazine also said it did not threaten Scarborough, Brzezinski, or their families.

Exactly why Trump is parsing the difference between "fake" and "fraud" in his nickname for CNN went unexplained in this afternoon's presidential Twitter triptych. "America's leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president", they wrote in the Post column.
