Today during the daily Press Briefing at the White House a “Media” Member asked if Trump was personally helping with the flooding in Texas with his personal funds. Yes he is donating $1 Million of his own money to the cause, and even wanted the media asked where they thought he should give it. Now here is the problem.
During the floods in Louisiana last year, I never remember the press asking then President Obama if he was donating any of his personal money to the crisis.
During Superstorm Sandy, I never remember the press asking then President Obama if he was donating any of his personal money to the crisis.
During Hurricane Katrina I never once heard a member of the so called press asking if then President George W Bush was donating any of his personal money to the crisis.
During/After 9/11 I never once heard a member of the press asking then President George W Bush if he was donating any of his personal money to the crisis.
During the Northridge Earthquake in 1994 in Los Angeles, I never heard a member of the press ask then President Bill Clinton if he was donating any of his personal money to the crisis.
During Hurricane Andrew in 1992, I never heard any member of the press ask President George HW Bush, or Candidate Bill Clinton if either were donating any of their personal money to the crisis.
When Mount St Helens erupted in 1980, I never heard any member of the press ask then President Jimmy Carter or Candidate Ronald Reagan if they were donating any of their personal money to the crisis.
So where do they get off asking President Trump? Yes President Trump is a billionaire and worth more than all those presidents combined, but what does that really matter? Just because he is a billionaire he should give his money to every cause, but considering the others were just millionaires they were exempt?
All this does is show just how much that the media hates President Trump and is doing everything in their power to try to get a gotcha moment. I can only imagine if Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that nothing had been decided at the moment the lead to every hour on CNN and MSNBC would have been that Trump did not really care about the people in Texas because he wasn’t spending his own money.
You realize it was Trump that sent the trucks of supplies to the people in Louisiana last year, not Obama. During 9/11, it was Trump that donated his own money to the cause, not George W Bush.
This is no longer a Republican vs Democrat issue, this is an all out war. Establishment vs Trump. Because there are times that even Republicans are looking for their own gotcha moments. This is the reason that Trump cannot and should never give up his Twitter, Facebook, etc, it is the only way to get even a partially fair shake at getting his message out there.
Sure it may seem like a little thing and you may feel like I am only on a rant, but this is getting beyond silly in what the press is trying to do to try to destroy the President of the United States of America. Acts like this make it even more obvious by the day, had it not been before. It is all in the details, and so called polls. I have a bit over 2,200 followers on Twitter and follow a bit over 700, and NO one I have seen on my timeline has turned on President Trump, or said they would not vote for him in 2020. So while I should say I am curious how they come up with these so called poll numbers, I just go back to this election, and even Brexit, when the press swore up and down the polls gave Trump and Brexit no chance. How did that work out for them?
This has to stop, we have to come together, this so called press has to realize they are causing the division in this country, which I honestly believe at this point is their goal. They want the next civil war. There is no proof of anything that could impeach Trump, and god knows they have tried to find some, or make it up. They know their goal right now is to try to continue to drive the narrative that Trump is failing, when just the opposite is happening, especially considering that Congress has been such a failure.
I get it, Trump is not one of them, and that is why we voted for him, they have been problem and yes, I am talking about the Press and the Congress (both parties). Our only chance at this point is to have a major turnover in Congress in 2018 and again in 2020. It is time for more outsiders to take over and beat the insiders. The insiders don’t care about us, that is perfectly clear.
As usual comments are welcome.
