Either Obama is completely delusional and out of touch with reality or he’s the most committed propagandist in the history of politics. In his self-serving “You’re going to miss me when I’m gone because this is how great I was” Friday press conference, Obama blamed “partisan” media outlets for making dividing the country, making us more dysfunctional and destroying the political process.
He said, “If fake news that’s being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues then it’s not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect,” he remarked during a press conference at the White House on Friday.
Don’t get too far ahead of yourself, Obama. What about when domestic networks refuse to cover obvious stories that deserve to be investigated, such as the birth certificate and natural born citizen status of a “president,” or the serious health concerns of another who did a face plant into her rescue vehicle and was obviously not in control of her motor skills?
What about the refusal by that same cabal of propagandists to investigate or at least treat as relevant the criminal acts of a candidate for president, including treason, money laundering, the sale of government secrets and a host of other felonies that are not even disputed by those conducting the investigation? Should they be given some attention?
Or is the aim to clutter up the landscape with irrelevant debris so that nothing of substance ends up being done and the corrupt can continue to exploit the openings they engineered for themselves for personal gain.
He said, “[V]oters who’ve been listening to that stuff for years, who have been getting that stuff everyday from talk radio or other venues, they’re going to believe it.” What if they’re getting it from the CFR media elites, Obama, the propagandists presenting the globalist message in lockstep, will they believe that as well? Was it what you’re labeling as fake that was actually free speech that saved the nation?
In a bizarre contradiction he called for both parties to strengthen the political process and make the political dialogue stronger and better to thwart their attempts at influencing the political process. What the heck does that mean? Make the political process stronger in order to influence the political process as a means of thwarting attempts to influence the political process? Poor guy, those ears have sucked his brain completely dry.
Obama goes on to infer that those he’s labeling as fake news, the truth tellers that cost Hillary Clinton and his party their dictatorship, are somehow in league with foreign governments and the proof is that there are similar reports. That’s weak and unfounded, an assumption that cannot be made based solely on the similarity of the content. Legitimate facts are facts, they’ll be the same regardless of which genuine news agency is reporting them.
There is no rule in the media that media outlets only report the news that occurs within their own boundaries. Unless the outlets are crafting their own facts, the reports will be similar regardless of the nationality of the news organization.
Like he often does, Obama makes a nonsensical statement in a forum where he cannot be challenged with the confidence that he won’t be questioned on it afterwards. He’s going on another vacation this week, and then he’s getting the hell out of our White House. Let this “grand maggot” make his wise proclamations to the Mooch. Let her tell him how brilliant he is. We don’t care what he thinks. We never did.
