Trump Attacks Dem Rep. Frederica Wilson For Sixth Day, Crows About Fake News Poll: It’s Finally Sinking In

The Hill reports:

President Trump early Sunday said media organizations have “lost cred,” pointing to a recent poll that found almost half of voters think the media make up stories about him. A Politico/Morning Consult poll released last week found that 46 percent of voters think the media fabricate reports about Trump and his administration.

Seventy-six percent of Republicans think the media fabricate stories about Trump, while just 20 percent of Democrats agree and 65 percent of Democrats disagree. The poll was conducted after Trump went after media companies in a series of tweets, saying that their broadcast licenses should be challenged and potentially revoked.

      Sadly, that will never happen, humiliation requires shame. Trump is free of a conscience thus no shame ergo no humiliation. The best we can hope for is to humiliate everyone around him.

      And of course he is convinced that when he TYPES IT IN ALL CAPPS!!11! we’ll believe it without a doubt. He really is like the bully in junior high.

        That is so cool! The beginnings of social behavior keep being found earlier and earlier.

      When I was five-years-old I had a quarter horse mix named Starfire. He had learned that my dad always had sugar cubes in his pockets to lure all the other horses to come when called so he could harness them. Starfire would lower his head and rub his neck against my shoulder and neck wanting me to hug him. NOT! He was just working me for sugar cubes. Still, I believe that donkey is truly being affectionate.

Every person who writes here, I challenge you to VOTE and do something to get out the vote…if you can contribute do so, if you can leaflet, do so…if you can drive seniors to the polls, do so. DO SOMETHING! If you get weary, remember impeachment starts in the House! If you don’t you are as guilty as that no date in high school shrew sarah fuckabee sanders.

  • another_steve

    One out of five Democrats think the media fabricate stories about Trump? Wow.

    If that’s true, I think the Republicans can rightly declare success re their campaign to besmirch the free press.

    • Tulle Christensen

      The Dems may be thinking of Fox News

      • Acronym Jim

        Or Bratfart “News.”

    • MsInformed

      They think the good stories are made up.

      • thatotherjean

        There have been good stories in real (as opposed to Fox, et al) media?

  • Eric Lewis

    Dotard. Kim was correct about one thing.

  • Joseph Miceli

    Maybe they believe it is fabricated because they simply can’t believe the shit this asshole pulls.
    “No..come on! No one would attack the family of a fallen soldier. You have to be making that up!”

    • RoFaWh

      Think of the worst conceivable behavior and I guarantee you that D2S will do something even worse. Literally something inconceivable for a President to do.

      Any day we can expect a video of D2S visiting Arlington National Cemetery and pissing on one of the gravestones because it’s too far to walk to the nearest men’s room, which is the breathtaking distance of 300′ from the graves.

      • Joseph Miceli

        That is conceivable . Sadly

  • romanhans

    Does anybody else have doubts about this poll? Trump says if confirms places like the NY Times and NBC make up stories. But couldn’t it be about Fox News? In which case 100% of Americans should believe we get fake news.

    • romanhans

      Checked out the poll. I think the question is meaningless. A Yes answer could mean you think the media invented a story about Trump last year, of invents stories eight days a week.

      Also found this little gem:

      Do you believe President Trump is handling ethics issues within his administration better or worse than each of the following administrations? The Obama Administration

      33% answered Better.

      That’s it for me. The stupid people win! Enjoy the country.

    • Nowhereman

      We all see a lot of fake news. The trick is to be able to spot it. I’ve head that in Europe they are working on educating citizens about the issue and how to spot it. I think I’m pretty good at it, but during the campaign I got fooled a few times before I realized what was going on. I would like for us to fuck up Russia’s next elections big time.

  • OdieDenCO

    repeat the lie long enough and the people will believe it. straight out of the nazi play book.

    • Nowhereman

      Yup–and they are even using the old German phrase for it–“Lugenpresse”. My father and grandfather are spinning in their graves.

  • Richard Rush

    “Seventy-six percent of Republicans think the media fabricate stories about Trump” . . . which is completely understandable considering that the vast majority of these people believe the preachers who’ve repeatedly told them the Bible is the truth.

    • MsInformed

      Also Rs watch Fox Alt-News.

      • Daveed_WOW

        That’s how it’s done. First President to command that Fox is the truth and the rest of the media is poison. #TRUMPISHITLER

            Why deny yourself? Get THREE scoops in the knowledge Donnie only gets two.

          • Nowhereman

            Made me chuckle. And what a good idea! we should all take pictures of ourselves eating a delicious homemade cake with THREE scoops of ice cream and just twist the knife. If we can get him up to 5-6 scoops, his heart will give up the ghost even quicker.

      Edit: To expand: Donnie Two-scoops refuses to entertain any notions that imply he’s no better than the homeless guys around the corner from Trump Tower, but Death eventually comes for everyone. He can turn a blind eye to it all he wants, but one day he’ll wake up with an aching left arm and chest pains or an inability to walk or speak and all the bluster and lies in the universe won’t help.

    Recently, there was a post here on JMG using a clip from a documentary titled “Children of the Stars”. We watched it last night and it was released in 2012. We could not comprehend the madness , the mindless allegiance of followers. It was like watching a John Waters film but the cast and characters were real, very real.
    So it isn’t hard to comprehend the that T45 has loyal, mindless followers who will stand with him, no matter how unreal things get.
    The madness of the film was chilling and compounded by the fact that the story line was true. It will take us a few days to get our bearings after being taken on a journey where none of the dots connected.

  • Lakeview Bob

    If the Furor went on television and said that everything ever written about him was true and there is no such thing as fake news, the same people from this poll would still say it is fake news. This people are more seriously disturbed than the Furor himself. But hey these people also believe in the God fairy tale.

  • Rocco

    He needs to go…sooner, rather than later.

    • Joe Maynard

      I used to think that, too. Then I started learning more about Pence. He would be worse – far more ideological than Trump, and more competent – not that that’s saying much, but he has experience in government and a proven ability to enact his ill-advised agenda. Remember that RFRA in Indiana passed wilth his enthusiastic support – he was forced to walk it back, a little, by the uproar, but the religious right still ended up better than where they started. And the telling counter-argument wasn’t that RFRA was unconstitutional or undesirable, merely that it disadvantaged Indiana relative to other states. That argument is nullified when a national law is passed.

      What we need is for the Congress to pass (by veto-proof margins) the proposed law that would rescind first-strike nuclear authority from Donald. That will make the world a safer place. It will not be enough to preserve America’s stature. However, that’s gone already, so don’t get caught in a sunk-costs fallacy by worrying about it. (Seriously – Pence? Ryan? Tillerson? We’re not going to get rid of all of them.) Then grit our teeth and slog it out until a brighter dawn. It will probably take generations to rebuild respect for this country in the world. Those of us on the wrong side of 50 will never see it again. #MAGA y’all.

      • RoFaWh

        It’s interesting (and very very sad) how fast Trump has managed to destroy the reputation of the USA as a fairly open society.

      • The_Wretched

        The current situation is intollerable and an impeachment stops at least a year of republican bs. Pence was about to lose Indiana’s gov race and withdrawn – he’s that unpopular generally and he can’t rally trump’s base.

        There’s also a good chance that ousting Trump gets Pense too.

  • vtdave

  • Galvestonian

    … so when Muller finally releases his report in all it’s glistening ugliness you must know by now that this ‘thing’, this farce that claims to be President of the United States will rear his reptilian head and hiss loudly and repeatedly for all to hear that it’s totally FAKE NEWS and that he is being picked on, targeted and attacked by Democrats because of Hillary, Bengazi, emails and the fact that the Democrats lost the election and anything else that he can make up. It’s gonna be a clusterfuck like no-one has ever seen before.

    So, to be clear, not a poll on what is true, but what people think is true. I believe this is what was referred to as “truthiness” on The Colbert Report.

      Your reference is wrong and ironically Orwellian.
