(NationalSentinel) No matter how hard he tries, President Donald Trump will never win over factions of the Left-wing discredited ‘mainstream’ media, and frankly, he shouldn’t try. That has been demonstrated time and again since he handed Hillary Clinton her second presidential defeat Nov. 8.
In the weeks after the election and before Friday’s inauguration, the Washington establishment media has alternated between delusional and hysterical, whipping up narrative after narrative forÂ the sycophants who still watch and read them that Trump is a racist, bigoted homophobe who will somehow manage to overturn two centuries of constitutionalism, legal precedent and case law to bring back slavery, persecution of gays and lesbians, and, probably, the Salem witch trials.
It’s the kind of stuff that is so over-the-top ridiculous it is difficult to take any of it seriously. But we have to because, unlike Trump–whose inaugural speech was a model ofÂ inclusiveness and inspiration forÂ all Americans–the establishment media is continuing to useÂ whatever influence it has left to keep the nation stirred up with hyperventilating nonsense and fake news.
As reported byÂ Lifezette,Â some of the most unhinged media meltdowns thus far include [our comments are in brackets]:
— Chauncey DeVega of Salon wrote of Trump supporters, â€œThey made a decision that loyalty to whiteness took precedence to a shared sense of humanity and the Common Good.â€ [Yes, yes…the old ‘you’re a racist if you support Trump’ card…]
“Our new president’s supporters are likely to suffer from his regressive policies. My compassion is limited,” DeVega wrote. “This is my version of liberal Schadenfreude â€” with slightly more hostile intent.”Â [We’ll take our chances, sport]
— On Friday’s NBC “Today” show, Matt Lauer expressed fear that the unruly Trump crowds might target former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton once again.
“They’re going to look up on that podium, or next to it, and see Hillary Clinton,” Lauer fretted. “And what are the fears that they may react in a vocal way toward her, mimicking some of the things that have been said during the campaign? And I think you know what I’m talking about.”Â [There were a few chants of, “Lock her up!” from the crowd, which was unfortunate, but they were nothing like the boo’s President George W. Bush received duringÂ President-elect Barack Obama’s first inauguration, which Lauer didn’t seem to mind]
–Â Over at Slate.com, another website full of leftist loathing,Â Yascha Mounk wrote on Thursday for his peers to stop hoping for impeachment.
Instead, they should see a best-case scenario in Trump failing, and then being beaten in 2020 by a young charmer. (Sound familiar?)
Impeachment may not be necessary, he thinks, even though “there is a chance that Trump marks the beginning of the end of American democracy. And, yes, there is a good chance that Trump will corrupt the American republic in lasting ways. But there is also a chance that this scary story will ultimately have a happy ending.”Â [Actually, Obama began ushering in the end of American democracy with his “phone and a pen” style of governing around Congress, but facts are inconvenient things to Left-wing hack ‘journalists’]
–Â No list of outrageous comments aimed at Republicans would be complete without MSNBC. This time, The Washington Post mixes in for remarks that would never have been made against President Obama in 2009.
On Thursday night, MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on “Hardball” that Trump will soon have access to nuclear weapons.
“So, the voice that’s recognized on the phone is commander-in-chief,” Matthews said. “[Trump] has the potential to do the stuff that scares the bedickens out of people â€” the dickens out of people who’ve actually been briefed.”
His guest, The Washingon Post’s Catherine Rampell agreed that Trump having the nuclear codes “is somewhat terrifying to me, given that Trump does not have the greatest impulse control and when he says that he gets attacked, he punches back.”Â [The suggestion that Trump’s mere possession of the nuclear codes meansÂ the end of the world is ‘near’ dates back to the Left’s hatred of President Ronald Reagan. This unhinged, irrational fear is based on a presumption that, in the heat of a moment, Trump wouldÂ destroy the world–himself and his family, included.Â That’s just not rational thinking from people whoÂ claim the mantle ofÂ rational]
There are more examples but you get the drift.
Trump will do his best to work forÂ all Americans, not just his supporters. Along the way he’ll win more converts if he and the GOP Congress are successful in getting government out of the way and out of our faces, bringing jobs and opportunities back to our country, and restoring a sense of pride and patriotism. But none of these converts will come from the angry Left-wing establishment media; they will continue to sell tired, worn-out narratives that the vast majority of AmericansÂ just won’t believe, makingÂ them even more irrelevant in the Age of Trump.
