The Whining and Stupidity of the Liberal Press Is Pathetic
19 November 2016 | Pago Pago, American Samoa
You would think Trump is the Devil incarnate. The wailing and recriminations are astounding. I am no Trump fan, but the reaction of liberals and their press are way overboard. Cry-in's on college campuses, with Playdoh and cuddle handouts, and the over-reactions in the press, with its doomsday scenarios, is simply too much. It is a great time for particular media to blow their credibility. Particularly when so many women voted for Trump and more than six million Democrats stayed home and didn't bother to vote (relative to 2012).
1) A few Slate headlines will give you the idea:
"Help! I think my husband's poor judgment put our kids in danger. Am I over-reacting?
"Making the White House White Again
"Do You Have Information About Abortions Trump May Have Paid For? Let Us Know."
2) Even the NY Times chimes in, to say nothing of HuffPo's screaming hissy fit:
"Krugman: Slump Coming?
"Bannon Holds Racist Views, Members of Both Parties Say
"Transition Briefing: F.B.I. Reports Surge in Hate Crimes"
3) Can we expect the National Inquirer to give us --
Trump ate my baby?
Excuse me, but I think the press has a few marbles lose and it reflects badly on their journalistic skills and particularly on their basic judgment. Fools are not to be relied up in such and similar circumstances. Barely edutainment, the worse merger ever.
Trump may not be all we could wish for, but in terms of the economy which matters most, the president is not all that important or nearly as important as congress or the Fed, and not all in those institutions see things as Trump does.
