Trump's Reality Show crisis was everything people have come to expect from him.
It wasn't just a horse and pony show...hell no...it was a propaganda coup (at least in the eyes of his base).
I'll be upfront with you; I don't think all the networks and cable news should have aired the hit piece by the world's biggest liar.
When President Obama wanted to talk about immigration after the midterms in 2014, the networks refused him. But they went along with Trump's request. You wanna talk collusion? What's that about?
The networks tried to redeem themselves by giving the Democrats equal time following Trump's tirade.
I think that strategy fell short, because in the end Trump once again has used the free press to push his hateful agenda and millions saw it.
Memo to the media: Stop giving the bastard free airtime! At least make him pay to spread his lies. You all have political ad charges so there's no excuse for not making it clear to viewers they're watching a partisan screed.
I, for one, am tired of seeing the orange anus make fools of all the networks. Fact-checking is fine, but why even allow a known liar to appear on TV claiming there's a crisis at the border and calling it a national emergency?
The only crisis is of Trump's own making, with immigrants living and dying in tent cities, and being separated from their children.
Trump sees this government shutdown as a successful ploy to get his dream wall. He couldn't be more wrong. Whether he knows it or not, he's hurting his base right now - in real time.
Between having no money coming in from the shutdown, and the toxic results of Trump's tariff wars, he's kicking his loyal minions in the ass!
As yesterdays press conference proved, he's out of touch with reality.
The amusing thing to me is that Trump didn't learn from his midterm orchestrated caravan crisis when the majority of voters soundly rejected the ploy and put Democrats in charge of The House.
I grade Trump's performance as just another FAIL from the worst president America's ever had.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
