Donald Trump's Sinister Fake News Awards

In my last post I lamented the fact that the White House doctor had horrified people all over the world, by giving Donald Trump a clean bill of health.

And by declaring that he was mentally competent, when just about everything he says or does seems to suggest the opposite.

Which predictably enough had Trump calling himself a genius. Again. 

Only to show the entire world that he's a drooling dotard or a babbling Baby Man.

By unveiling his so-called Fake News Awards. 

With this one being my fave...

For it clearly demonstrates the size of Trump's pea brain, and reveals how even the smallest things can drive him over the deep end.

And why he must be removed from office, before among other things he turns America into a police state. 

For beyond the burning hypocrisy. 

President Trump — who gleefully questioned President Barack Obama’s birthplace for years without evidence, long insisted on the guilt of the Central Park Five despite exonerating proof and claimed that millions of illegal ballots cost him the popular vote in 2016 — wanted to have a word with the American public about accuracy in reporting.

Is the sinister intention.

The content of the 11-point list was perhaps less notable than its premise: a sitting president using his bully pulpit for a semi-formalized attack on the free press.

Which is nothing less than a blatant attempt to intimidate and muzzle the media.

Trump uses the "fake news" label to tar almost any news outlet or story he doesn't like, including the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, NBC News and most recently the Wall Street Journal, whose owner, Rupert Murdoch, has been Trump-friendly. The idea is to give core supporters an excuse to disregard damaging stories.

It's a cheap ploy, but it comes with a serious, sinister subtext. Trump has been making a case for changing U.S. libel laws to make it easier to punish publishers of news he considers "fake."

And as Senator Jeff Flake said yesterday, when Trump calls the free press "the enemy of the American people," he sounds like Joseph Stalin...

"The president has it precisely backwards — despotism is the enemy of the people," Flake said in remarks prepared for delivery in the Senate. "The free press is the despot's enemy, which makes the free press the guardian of democracy. 

When a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn't suit him, 'fake news,' it is the person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press."

And the good news? 

The White House doctor's diagnosis may have been a little too flattering.

Cardiologists not associated with the White House said Wednesday that President Trump’s physical exam revealed serious heart concerns, including very high levels of so-called bad cholesterol, which raises the risk that Mr. Trump could have a heart attack while in office.

So Trump could still leave us in a box.

But if not the warning couldn't be clearer.

Remove that ugly maniac from power, by whatever means necessary.

Before he turns his country into a fascist nightmare... 

And before he kills us all...

  2. Trump is alledged to have had multiple "affair a la Tiger Woods" with porn stars, this would have forced any other president to the bunker at least. For Trump its a yawn. Trump pardons Banks, how is it even possible to pardon a Bank, let alone one you probably owe billions of dollars too. Again nothing but yawns we are talking about shitholes. We are the fools not him.

    2. Hi Steve...I don't know if we're the fools. Those who voted for him certainly were fools, or just desperate. And while I'm not a prude, I do think a President should be a lot classier than Trump. And he has none...

  3. Hey Nazi...please take your anti-semitism somewhere else, or better still shove it where the sun don't shine. Because let me assure you, you and your fellow bigots will NEVER get anything like that published here. Seig Trump etc etc...

    Either the author of the test or someone very familiar with it has stated that acing the test is quite rare and that 1 or 2 mistakes were the norm so my guess is Trump cheated on it. Given that his whole presidency is based on one lie after the other gives the idea of cheating all the plausibility it needs.
    Besides, had he not cheated, the embarrassment of failing it would have been too much for Donnie's fragile ego. His clock drawing would have been in digital format, 11:10. The correct answer rhinoceros would have instead been unicorn, the camel would have been brand of cigarette and... so on.
    The only thing fake about this shit-show presidency is Trump himself. The self described "genius" is more an idiot savant without the savant who spends half his waking hours fluffing up his feathers and the other half being a complete asshole.

    1. Hi JD...I wouldn't be surprised if Trump cheated. He did ask for the test which otherwise would not have been administered. And I can see Stephen Miller being sent to steal it, and General Kelly spending the whole night getting Trump to memorize the answers. Everything in Trump's world is fake, and the only criteria is that it must make him look good. I had an interesting conversation with a senior doctor yesterday, and he said that when he heard Dr Ronny saying that Trump had such good genes he might have lived to be 200, he questioned the validity of his entire medical report. And of course I didn't disagree... ;)

  5. Does Trump read? When GWB was asked to donate all his books to the Presidential Library his wife said " I through out all the colouring books"

    Do you read? If you do not read, you do not think. Video is a regression to our ancestors that did not know better. Reading actually changed the human brain and brought us to the life we live today. Perhaps it was against the wishes of GIA. We reject immunizations and the wisdom of words simultaneously while our institution have orangutans running goverment.

    Meanwhile the non political people are delving into what primatives
    would consider god like territory. What else can you call a gene splice?

    The best and worst of Sci Fiction is our headline every day
    and what will become of the huddled masses
    I expect mass extinction
    and I could be right.

    Thats the attraction of
    Jurassic park
    a exclusive controlled
    with extinct beasts

    1. hi Steve...apparently Trump reads very little, and can absorb about as much text as can be crammed into one page, before he loses interest. If he was severely dyslexic I might understand that, but apparently he is not, just intellectually lazy...

  6. Hey all you Jew haters. Sorry to break your balloon on control of the planet
    but let me introduce you to the Chinese.

    1. hi Steve...please, I've had to delete three Nazi comments calling for me and the "Judenpresse" to be sent to a concentration camp, let's not look for anymore scapegoats. Nobody controls the world and that's just fine with me...

    Its interesting that news sources can write articles about people who starve and chain children or commit mass murder and all is calm while the population digests the news with a sigh and comments such as "another nut bar" or "crazy world". However let some kid falsely report a hijab scissor cutting incident and the population explodes with no end of highly animated controversy. Not surprising unscrupulous politicians would use this free energy to deceive intent and herd the population into the shit house or the lobster trap if that is their preference. Were we always this dumb and modern media just enhanced the art of the political scam or are we actually so divorced from reality we are loosing whatever emotional intelligence we once had?

    1. hi RT... I agree it's really a crazy world. The story of that child should never have been blown up like it was. The CBC was the first to go wild without waiting for a police report, the school board should never have staged a news conference. And as for all those people coming down on the head of a child, they should be ashamed of themselves...
