Trump Declares The Media The Biggest Threat To Democracy


If you’re one of those people who’s still
out there saying that Donald Trump did a good thing by meeting with North Korean dictator
Kim Jong-un, then I have something for you to consider. After spending what, roughly a day with this
dictator who controls everything in his country including the media, Donald Trump tweeted
out that, “The media here in the United States is actually the biggest threat to our democracy.” Less than 24 hours spent with a dictator and
Donald Trump immediately comes home and starts talking like one. I don’t think that’s a coincidence, even though
yeah, Donald Trump has been attacking the media since day one, but to call them, “The
greatest threat to democracy” is a step up that even Donald Trump hadn’t taken before. Here’s the tweet in which Donald Trump officially
announced the media’s the biggest threat to our country. “So funny to watch the fake news, especially
NBC and CNN. They’re fighting hard to downplay the deal
with North Korea. 500 days ago they would’ve begged for this
deal. Looked like war would break out. Our country’s biggest enemy is the fake news
so easily promulgated by fools.” See, 500 days ago they would’ve begged for
some kind of summit. Why? Because you were threatening war with them,
nuclear war. You, Donald Trump, created the crisis and
then you pretended to solve it. You made all this up in your own head. So why in the world is anybody out there saying
that, “Oh, he did a good thing. Nuclear war’s always bad.” It is always bad. You’d have to be a complete idiot to not think
that, okay? But he created the problem, then he offers
a bandaid solution, so I don’t think he deserves any credit for anything. On top of the fact that he’s coming back here
blatantly shitting on the First Amendment telling us that the press is the biggest threat
to American democracy. No. The biggest threat to American democracy is
sitting in the White House right now. The biggest threat to American democracy is
Donald Trump and what he is doing to this country. Lavishing praise on dictators, alienating
our allies and attacking them on Twitter, getting condemned by a unanimous vote by the
Canadian Parliament who are supposed to be our closest allies, and holding hands, embracing,
saluting a brutal dictator and his regime. I’m sorry. But Donald Trump wants to be a dictator. This meeting with Kim Jong-un was absolutely
a farce. Nothing will come of it. Nothing will benefit the United States. North Korea’s not going to denuclearize because
they didn’t in the 10 other agreements they made in the past to do that. Trump created the crisis, he offered a bandaid
for it, and now he’s out there trying to take away our constitutional rights. Anyone praising anything that this man does,
says, or is, is an absolute fraud.

    Trump is the literal embodiment of all the seven deadly sins.

    Lust: 3 wives (soon to be 4), sleeps around with a certain porn star we won't name. He "grabs em by the pussy" and doesn't even wait.

    Gluttony: he eats like a pig and is so fat that his gut has it's own zip code.

    Sloth: has no desire to be better, to learn, or to even be president for that matter.

    Envy: is jealous of everyone who is smarter than him and more successful than him. Ask Richard Branson and Bill Gates.

    Greed: screws workers out of their money by refusing to pay them and filing for bankruptcy to avoid paying them. Plates everything in his penthouse gold, he has a gilded commode for Christ sake!

    Wrath: Trump is incredibly petty, obsesses over vengeance, sues comedians over jokes at his expense, threatens allies and nuclear armed nations. Fires staffers over stupid things, not to mention the whole "fire and fury" thing.

    Pride: Trump is the absolute epitome of narcissism.

    Our POTUS (Piece OF Throughly Worthless S#!t) is desperately trying to jockey himself into position for winning a Nobel Peace Prize (something he "jokingly" (?) referred to, not all that long ago) for solving the North/South Korea conflict. He doesn't give a rat's ass about peace in southeast Asia. He just wants another prize. Something he can hold up and say, "See, I'm not the idiot you thought I was."

    Annnnnd once more, the orange wannabe dictator says some anti- American shit and what are those dumb fucks in the Republican party doing? Hell, where's the outrage from the Americans? Do we not care anymore!? You're right, sadly. NOTHING will get done and I seriously doubt Mueller's investigation will stop Donald Cheeto Trump. This buffoon has the most moronically horrendous brain ever conceived and he is as incapable to lead a country let alone a business as he is an ugly soul. I didn't think it was possible to have such disdain for a person as I do for this bozo, yet here it is. But what angers me the most is not this morose bastard of a life form, but the stupid fucks that worship this despicable man's flaming Cheetoh cock!

    I wonder if Trump went through a civics classes in middle school and again in high school. Someone in the white house should have given him the audible book on how our system of government works.( I don't think he reads anything.) I can't believe this person actually finished a college anywhere. Amazing!!!

    I'm surprised to see Trump using a word like "promulgated!" ;O)
    There's a great deal wrong with the media in the "free world," however, I'd say that the biggest threat to our "democracy" comes from the likes of Trump and his cronies.

    It's going to be a battle for the 2018 vote. Because Trump supporters are dug in, no matter what he says. Trumps voice is the thought that all Republicans have. He just gave them a Box to all stand on. The old guard is afraid, and will fight to the death to keep what ever leverage they can have on this country. Republicans Fear of change, and mostly progressive thinking. Republicans will fight against Alternative fuel sources to Coal & Gas. Like wind and Solar. When ever someone spews hate for CA. and says it's bankrupt . Or too many Brown people, communists, or LGBT. And say Libtards have ruined the State of CA . Texas has a better Economy Than CA. Or CA is wealthy because of it's geography and resources not because of the Liberals. These are the People to be aware of.

    Trump, most of the House and Senate are a horrible cancer that is spreading all over the US. It eating everything good about America, but we can stop it in it's tracks by voting in our elections and keep it from ever returning by writing laws to strongly vete our candidates. We have to do this to be sure that we don't let history repeat itself. We can never afford to have another lying conman as our president ever again.

    I agree that certain parts of media is a huge threat to democracy.

    On top of that list comes Fox News closely followed by Breitbart.

    Also, those parts of conventional media who question Trump or his lackeys without challenging them when they bullshit. Like when the republican president with a republican house and senate says that he is just following the law and it is the democrats that must change it. Right there and then the interviewer should ask Trump which law is this that require USA to separate children from their families? What law require US to take children away from a family of asylum seekers that seek asylum at the border? Which paragraph of which law makes this requirement?

    Instead they allow him to tout his bullshit unchallenged and THAT is an example of media failing to do its job and being a threat to democracy.

    However, as a general remark this is just more bullshit from Trump – bullshit that ought to be challenged and not just allowed to pass out of fear of him not wanting to talk with that journalist again. Why would you want to talk to a president that keep talking bullshit in the first place if you just allow him to tout that bullshit unchallenged? That makes you an accomplice in spreading his propaganda rather than doing real journalism in the first place.

    Had Trump named Fox News rather than NBC and CNN in his tweet he would have been a little closer to the mark. But as usual he got it backwards. He thinks his enemies are his friends and his friends are his enemies, so of course he thinks real news is fake and fake news is real. If any other President had been this delusional he would have been immediately removed from office. A man who doesn't know up from down and fact from fiction has the nuclear codes. Doesn't anyone in the USA realize how dangerous Trump is?

    whenever someone like trump (and i need not give specific names) got elected, he was simply the representative of the voter's beliefs and values. you can blame trump for being who he is for as much as you like but it should also be said that in placing him in power the voters are responsible for anything that happens later on.

    She really believes that him.

    Sorry we are Dutch, we can be stubborn and at odd with each other.

    Been telling her the meeting was a sham. But its no good.

    She tells me this is the way with politics. I said neither kim nor trump are politicians. Its a dictator and a dictator wanabe.

    She believes the denuclearization will go ahead.
    Sometimes i wonder if we are really related…
