The Media Brought This Butthurt on Themselves

Chuck Todd, Shepard Smith, and the rest of the Democrat Media Complex are in full hissy-fit mode because Trump is mean to them. (i.e. He doesn’t call on them at press conferences, and he accuses them of spreading lies about his administration. {By the way, the media are totally spreading lies about his administration. [And remain pathetically and abjectly worshipful of his predecessor]}) The thing of it is though, they have no one to blame for this situation but themselves.

This is what Chuck Todd and others like him fail to accept or comprehend: The mainstream media have delegitimized themselves. Republicans and independents watched for eight long years as Todd and others of his ilk did their best to help and support the last administration; not only refusing to hold President Obama to account (the way they are imploring each other to do with Trump) but providing cover for him. The media framed Obama as the reasonable one while Republicans were just “intransigent” jerks who didn’t want Obama to succeed. They packaged and delivered his preferred message every night and all day on the cable channels.

As for Trump, for all of their bellyaching over his habitually manhandling them or his refusal to call on them during press conferences, they utterly fail to consider that may they shouldn’t have tried to game the system to force Trump on Republicans because they thought it would help Hillary.

Trump is quite smart to cast the media in the role of villain. They are already despised and mistrusted by the majority of Americans (about 75% according to Gallup). And by stoking their hostility, making them go nuts over nothingburgers like General Flynn talking to his Russian counterpart, he discredits any legit criticisms they may come up with.

The best thing the media could do right now is ignore Trump’s provocations and try to report the news straight up and without deranged bias. Of course, they won’t do that because their egos and temperaments won’t allow it.

Billionaires Against Trump

Sultan Knish observes that the rebellion against Donald Trump isn’t exactly what you would call a “Grassroots Movement.” 

When the underground isn’t at GQ (The Most Radical Dress Socks to Wear Right Now), it’s at Vanity Fair where Graydon Carter denounces Trump (Donald Trump: A Pillar of Ignorance and Certitude) right above a photo of himself taken by Annie Leibovitz smiling smugly from his skyscraper office.

Maybe the resistance is Reed Hastings, the billionaire CEO of Netflix, who used his wealth catering to the tastes of urban elites, to lobby to raise the taxes of the middle class. Hastings whined that President Trump’s moves to protect Americans were “so un-American it pains us all.”

Who are this ‘us’? It might be Warren Buffett, Google’s Eric Schmidt and Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, with whom Hastings had joined to support Hillary Clinton. Or it might be the CEOs of Lyft, Airbnb and Twitter, to name a few, who have jointed the anti-Trump resistance of wealthy elites.

The “resistance” is a collection of elites, from actors at award shows to fashion magazines to tech billionaires, decrying a popular revolt against their rule. They are not the resistance. They are dictators in exile. They had their chance to impose their vision on the people. And they lost.

Ah, The Vaunted Wit and Intellectual Heft of the Left on Full Display

Milo Yiannopoulos appeared on the online version of Bill Maher’s HBO smugfest, where he was parried by the brilliance and rapier wit of panelist Larry Wilmore. I have no idea who Larry Wilmore is, but when it comes to zingers… he’s not exactly Dorothy Parker.

Lately, I’ve come to believe that the Left’s self-proclaimed intellectual superiority may be somewhat oversold.
