President Trump hit a home run with his speech today, originally billed as one on infrastructure, a topic which nobody in the room seemed to want to talk about. The reporters were in a self-generating lather over Charlottesville and clearly not willing to accept the notion that BLM and AntiFa are anything other than a collection of humanitarians and saints working together for brotherly love and world peace. They’re either completely blind to or in deliberate denial of reality.
President Trump responds to one vicious, loud, snarky female in the crowd to begin the video, the type of individual this is consistently part of his exchanges She asks about him waiting “so long” to attack the “neo-Nazis.” President Trump defended himself, noting that he waited for the facts, unlike most of the propagandists in the room and that some of the facts are still not known.
He explains “It takes a little while to get the facts – you still don’t know the facts” to the reporter. She’s a news professional, you’d think she’d at least have that much of a basic understanding of what her job is supposed to be and the integrity that is supposedly a key element.
Trump: Unlike the media, before I make a statement, I like to know the facts.
Trump jabbed the reporter, “Unlike you and unlike the media, before I make a statement, I like to know the facts.” He’s asked about Steve Bannon, replying he is a good person that the press treats very unfairly. He’s asked about calls from Senator McCain to defend HR McMaster. President Trump interrupts to clarify that that is the same Senator McCain who torpedoed his being able to fix the healthcare system and reminds them he’s already defended McMaster.
She quotes McCain, as stating the “alt-right” is behind the attacks in Charlottesville. President Trump says with presumed sarcasm that he’s sure McCain must know what he’s talking about but asks the reporter to define “alt-right.” She won’t or can’t, instead repeating what McCain said. Trump interrupts her asking, “Well, what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact they came charging, with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.”
Trump says, “That was a horrible, horrible day…” as CNN’s Jim Acosta interrupts. Trump responds, “Wait a minute, I’m not finished. I’m not finished, Fake News.” Trump attempts to continue but the big mouth doesn’t shut up. So he stops talking and looks away in obvious frustration. One has to wonder if this is the last we see of Acosta in one of these events, though he does make what is probably an irresistible target for President Trump, representing everything that is wrong with the media today.
He goes on to make the important points that none of the propagandists in the room want to hear, that there were bad actions and bad people on both sides, and that the “alt-left” thugs were some very bad people who viciously attacked the others, many of whom were peacefully protesting the monument removal decisions.
He asks who will be next to be purged from history, George Washington or Thomas Jefferson, both of whom were slave owners. It’s the Trump of old that we haven’t seen for a while. It’s great to see him acting in a strong, reasoned, unwavering, morally superior and unrelenting manner again.
Imagine how quickly white Americans would have been sold out in this situation if the pandering, patronizing and anti-American Clinton had won.
