And once again CNN, AKA Fake News Network, is whining about something President Trump has done to upset them!
On Thursday morning President Trump shut down his exclusive golf course on Summit Boulevard were he is vacationing in order to allow members of the U.S. Coast Guard to hold a tournament without the prying eyes of the scandal-hungry mainstream fake news media hacks.
Of course, CNN was ready to whine about it:
Yup, the lamestream media were all up in arms because a truck from the sheriff’s department was blocking the view media’s view of the golf course.
Obama and Hezbollah? Nah
ISIS losing 98% of it’s territory and power? Not interested
Bernie Sanders admitting 90% of Americans get tax cuts? Shhhhh.
No, WE NEED TO TRACK DOWN THIS TRUCK THAT KEPT US FROM FILMING TRUMP LIKE WE WERE CREEPY STALKERS!!
Well done Noah. LOL

I wish those of us who lost our health insurance coverage because of Obamacare could have “resisted” when millions of us got that notification letter. But let’s be honest with ourselves, resisting is only ok if the President is a Republican and white.
Did Mainstream Media Forget How Obama Treated Fox News?
I know the mainstream media is still licking its wounds after President-elect Donald Trump smacked them around in his first press conference since winning the election.
And I hate to add salt to their wounds, but it seems they’ve got a case of amnesia.
The media feigned outrage after Mr. Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter.
“Don’t be rude,” Mr. Trump told CNN’s Jim Acosta when he tried to ask a question. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
He went all-out against the network because they reported on an unsubstantiated 35-page document that claimed Trump is being blackmailed by the Russian government.
Trump praised those in the media who had restraint from peddling the false report.
“I have great respect for the news, great respect for freedom of the press,” Trump said, thanking those who didn’t run the unsubstantiated story, saying his opinion of them may have “gone up a notch.”
But the mainstream media rallied around CNN.
“The journalist whom Trump called on should have yielded to CNN. Don’t allow him to refuse to answer Qs from certain news outlets,” Politico reporter Peter Sterne tweeted.
Acosta whined that incoming press secretary Sean Spicer threatened to toss him out of the press conference after he repeatedly interrupted the president-elect demanding to get his question answered.
I can’t recall the mainstream media rallying around Fox News anytime over the last eight years when President Obama attacked them.
In fact, let’s review the times Obama blamed the No. 1 name in news:
Then-candidate Obama complained he would be polling higher if Fox didn’t exist. This may work in soap operas and song lyrics, but that’s not exactly the best start to a working relationship with the press.
“I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points higher in the polls,” Obama told liberal journalist Matt Bai of the New York Times Magazine. “[T]he way I’m portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latté-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?”
Obama admitted in a softball interview with Rolling Stone that he “disagrees” with Fox News. No shock there, but added he believes Fox has a “destructive viewpoint.”
“I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It’s a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it’s been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it’s that Fox is very successful.”
After the Democrats’ midterm election shellacking, President Obama reportedly told labor leaders in a private meeting that Fox News was partly responsible for him “losing white males” who tune into the network to “hear Obama is a Muslim 24/7.”
He needed someone to blame for the massive losses because the next election was his.
Obama went after Fox News on the campaign trail for his health care law.
“If you’ve talked to somebody who said, ‘Well, I don’t know, I was watching Fox News and they said this is horrible,’ you can say, ‘you know what? Don’t take my word for it! Go on the website.”
During a pre-Super Bowl interview, President Obama suggested Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly was being unfair for asking questions about ObamaCare’s shortcomings, the IRS scandal and Benghazi.
Because, as Obama’s longtime adviser Valerie Jarrett said in a recent CNN interview, “The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself…” Yes, she really said that.
President Obama insisted ObamaCare is “working pretty well in the real world” despite it being a “fanged threat to freedom on Fox News” in a speech at Northwestern University.
Nevermind the painful costs it’s incurring now, and the fact that Democrats can’t defend it to save Obama’s legacy.
At a Clinton fundraiser in New York City, President Obama predicted a close election “not because of Hillary’s flaws,” but because of Fox News and some blogs “that are churning out a lot of misinformation…”
Which brings us to our final whopper from the president:
After Trump’s successful win on election day, Obama blamed Fox News for Democrats losing elections because of “Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country.”
Time and time again, Obama used the bully pulpit to blame Fox News for his losses, but the mainstream media didn’t come alongside Fox.
Trump was right to do what he did – given CNN’s shameful act.
CNN should commit to honest reporting – or get used to reporting from the doghouse.
Isn’t it wonderful how the media attacks President Trump on everything, even when all he wants to do is golf a few holes and let the National Guard have a private golf tournament on his own golf course, in peace? Meanwhile, when President Barack Hussein Obama was in office the media were all very respectful and even sat on, and forgot about stories which would portrait the administration in a negative light. But we all know this was because Barry was a Liberal and half black. It had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with his ability, nor his character.
The president is on vacation, LEAVE HIM BE. After the year of hell he’s had just trying to undo all the baggage and mistakes Obama left us with while you scum in the media lie about him on a daily basis, he deserves to have a 2-week vacation in peace. Pretend President Trump is an African American Liberal Democrat if you have to!
Please share if you want the media to leave our president alone…
