Between President Trump’s trip to the NATO summit last week and his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, the liberal media had been trying to portray Trump as a bull in a china shop damaging relationships with allies and upending global norms. During Wednesday’s edition of Cuomo PrimeTime, CNN host Chris Cuomo tried to continue that narrative only to have it turned around on him by Brigadier General Anthony Tata (U.S. Army Retired).
NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel reacted during a Tuesday afternoon Special Report to President Trump’s attempt at damage control following the Helsinki summit by dubbing the remarks a “magic trick” meant to deceive the world and gives Russia “a green light” to continue its cyber-hacking and meddle in elections across the globe.
Reacting to the late Monday morning joint press conference (U.S. time) between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, CNN’s Anderson Cooper declared that he had just witnessed “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly that I've ever seen” at “[a]n extraordinary press conference.”
If there’s one thing the anti-Trump resistance members in the liberal media love more than themselves, it’s praising other like-minded people protesting the President. And if it’s people from another country, that’s even better. NBC demonstrated that love during Sunday Today when White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell praises a dangerous aerial stunt at Trump’s Scotland resort as “spectacular.”
Following Friday’s joint press conference in Chequers, England between President Donald Trump and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, NBC rushed to its safe space amongst their pals in the anti-Trump, far-left protesters marching the streets of London and fretting that the President tussled with reporters.
During Wednesday’s edition of New Day, the panel suffered a meltdown over President Trump’s suggestion that NATO members should pay their fair share and bringing up Germany’s reliance on Russia for oil. According to co-host John Berman: “This kind of diplomacy looks like Hulk smash. This looks like the avengers, Hulk smash.” Later, panelist John Avlon lamented that the office President Trump occupies “is the office formerly known as the leader of the free world. And he sure isn’t acting that way.”
The establishment media couldn’t stump the Trump, the US politicians couldn’t derail the Donald’s campaign, and the purple-haired feminists couldn’t put a chink in his armor with all that screaming. Still there is one last hope. The petty pranksters and irreverent humorists in the UK have sworn to give the U.S. president the “trolling of a lifetime.”
While on his trip Wednesday to the NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium on Wednesday, President Trump wasted no time in slamming member counties for not paying enough for their self-defense. The president also targeted criticism at Germany for climbing in bed with Russia, the enemy of the alliance, to satiate its energy needs. Of course, the liberal media were shrieking like banshees and on ABC’s World News Tonight, they touted the German Chancellor for taking the “high road” with her response.
Yes, Chris Matthews said that on Tuesday’s Hardball. And, no, it didn’t appear that Matthews realized how what he said about President Trump came across as quite the case of irony. In the A-block of his MSNBC program, Matthews wondered if the world is “about to see collusion in plain sight” by “eight-year-old” President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin even though, in Matthews’s world, Trump’s “brain soup” is “psychobabble.”
President Trump touched down in Brussels, Belgium late Tuesday ahead of what many predicted to be a tense meeting with NATO allies. The President had been critical of the vast majority of those allies because they had refused to raise defense spending to what was required by the agreement, while America paid way more. Trump’s “America First” approach to foreign policy was detested by the liberal media. So much so, that ABC and NBC edited video to solely condemn the President.
The British people have been eagerly anticipating Trump’s visit to the UK this summer. Rolling out a rather cheeky welcome, the anti-Trumpers across the pond have prepared protests and even picked an official song to go with their rebellion, perfect for mocking the boisterous US leader: Green Day’s “American Idiot.”
Much of Europe was asleep, or in denial, when the Nazis took power and began rebuilding their military in violation of the Versailles Treaty that brought World War I to an end. Now, after years of virtually unlimited migration from predominately North African and other Muslim regions, some European nations are awakening to what this could mean for their countries and are responding, hoping it's not too late.
