Trump to Media: You’re Fired

Trump

The Donald brags about not spending money to win the nomination thanks to free media coverage. But apparently he’s had enough. He revoked the Washington Post’s press credentials because he didn’t like a headline.

“I am no fan of President Obama, but to show you how dishonest the phony Washington Post is, they wrote, ‘Donald Trump suggests President Obama was involved with Orlando shooting’ as their headline,” Trump wrote. “Sad!”

CNN says the headline (which was changed before Trump complained) came from an interview he did with Fox News.

“Look, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” Trump said of Obama. “And the something else in mind — you know, people can’t believe it. People cannot, they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can’t even mention the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on.”

Last night he said,  “Obama is more angry at me than he was at the shooter.”

The Post isn’t alone. He’s also told The Des Moines Register, Univision, The Huffington Post, Politico, The Daily Beast, and Buzz Feed to buzz off.

Cincinnati King Kong

In the latest remake of King Kong, Harambe The Gorilla played the great ape role admirably and the four year old boy filled in nicely for Fay Wray, Jessica Lange, or Naomi Watts as you prefer.

The misunderstood gorilla  and bad old humans theme remains popular. But not everyone is all blubbery about Harambe’s demise. Steelers linebacker Vince Williams tweeted that he’s better  off dead than in Cincinnati.

Media Trump Loves to Hate

Donald Trump calls news shows to be interviewed. He never turns down a microphone. The media can’t resist him and now he’s the Republican presumptive nominee.

Media Trump Loves to Hate

But it’s media Trump loves to hate. He calls them dishonest and disgusting.  (He’s right if he’s talking about Katie Couric’s gun documentary.) Yesterday he called ABC reporter Tom Llamas a sleaze.

Charles Hurt thinks Trump’s a marketing genius. He turned yesterday’s press conference into a 40 minute free campaign commercial about money he raised for veterans.

Cincinnati Gorilla, Chicago Humans

Well, it’s not every day a gorilla is gunned down in Cincinnati. But for human beings in Chicago it kind of is an every day experience. CBS News Chicago tracks shootings here.

Hillary’s Lies

Hillary's Lies

The State Department Inspector General’s Report says Hillary broke the rules by using her home brew email server for official business. Hillary has insisted that her email setup was “allowed by the Stat Department”. It wasn’t. She lied.

Hillary’s Lies

Jonah Goldberg says Hillary’s lies are different than The Donald’s lies. His are spontaneous. Hers are premeditated.

Unlike Donald Trump’s lies, which he usually vomits up spontaneously like a vesuvian geyser, Clinton’s were carefully prepared, typed up, and repeated for all the world to hear over and over again…

Meanwhile, Clinton — who lives many time zones away from the word “entertaining” — is marketing herself as the mature and upstanding grown-up. She does nothing spontaneously. And that means all of her lies are premeditated.
