North Korean Cheerleaders
The media obsession was too much for BuzzFeed. It wants to know “what the hell is wrong with you people?”
When I read the paper yesterday morning I knew we were in for a MSM s***storm. That’s because on page A4, in a story headlined Trump Vulgarity Roils DACA Deal, The Wall Street Journal said “shithole.”
“President Donald Trump questioned why the U.S. would admit people from “shithole countries…”
And that was in the lead sentence. Then they did it again in the third sentence. And again in this morning’s paper:
The fate of young undocumented immigrants was in doubt and the odds of a government shutdown appeared to be growing in the wake of President Donald Trump’s dismissal of “shithole countries” in Africa and his rejection of a bipartisan proposal to aid the so-called Dreamers.
Trump also wanted to know why we don’t import people from Norway instead of Haiti. Norway, for its part, said it didn’t want to come here.
I haven’t been to Haiti so I can’t say if Trump’s assessment is accurate. But one man’s s***hole can be another man’s money pot. That is if you’re the Clinton Foundation doing good deeds in Haiti.
I have been to Djibouti, Africa and the president may be on to something there.
Trump made his colorful comments during a closed bipartisan meeting to work out a DACA agreement. The day before he held a televised bipartisan meeting and uttered many nice words. In that meeting he said he’d sign any bill brought to his desk.
But back to the bad words. CNN would not be outdone. Gateway Pundit which apparently is an avid watcher, says CNN said S***hole 36 times on Thursday night.
And it took Bess Truman 25 years to get Harry to say manure.
This didn’t sit well with President Trump. Trump tweeted that Bannon “lost his mind” when he fired him. The Avenging Donald then sicced his lawyers on Wolff – guaranteeing best seller status for the book .
CNN’s Brian Stetler claims Wolff’s book “suggests Trump is unstable and raises alarms about his fitness for office.”
But CNN also reports that Secretary of State Tillerson, once accused of calling Trump a moron, never questioned the president’s mental health. And the White House deputy press secretary called Wolff a fake news, crackpot fantasy fiction writer.
Wolff agrees! A note in the front of his book says some of his sources definitely lied to him.
Dow Up Bannon Down
Whatever. If it’s stability you want, the Dow steadily rose above the 25,000 mark.
Stock analyst Paul Gambles is terrified about that too.

Apple is sorry it slowed your old iPhone 6. But the company wasn’t trying to force you to buy a new one. Just saving the batteries of the old ones.
Meanwhile, Apple compensated C.E.O. Tim Cook $89 million in stock options, along with another $12 million cash.
He won’t be using airplane mode on his iPhone either. Apple wants him to fly strictly private.
