Shep Smith, fool

Shep Smith to Donald Trump: "No sir, we are not fools..."

When you rant about not being a fool, the froth flying from your lips pretty much renders your claim null and void.

Let's face it, mainscream media, Donald Trump is twisting your OODA loop into something resembling a balloon dog.

Alinsky rule #5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

President Trump used it brilliantly against the drive-bys, and he needs to continue using it as long as they continue to attack him. Give'em a dose of their own medicine.

I watched the video of Trump's press conference and I did not see a "blustery and bombastic" performance by the President. He called out the FakeNews outlets in a very calm, straight forward, even gentlemanly way. He andled some gotcha questions in the same restrained manner.

Shepherd Smith is being his usual hysterical self. He really needs to get a grip.

I watched it too, Holding My Nose and I agree: Trump handled it very well.
Love the way Trump is exposing the fake-stream media directly to the American people.

Shep wants to be Geraldo when he grows up.
He's the perfect, 21st century journo. Lazy, stupid, ignorant and biased.

Trump speaks plainly and honestly which is a style foreign to his detractors, and all the more annoying to them. Shep is, as the old saying goes "a legend in his own mind."

President Trump should learn to state his points in a succinct manner and not repeat it. It's very annoying, as are
some of the gestures. It does appear he is working on the gestures.

I put together couple of grabs from Althouse commenting on New York Post:

"In front of cameras, and using the assembled press corps as props, he conducted a televised revival meeting to remind his supporters that he is still the man they elected...
And they know that however many times he does it, they will need to sit there and take it, allow themselves to be used. Can they boycott the press conference? Can they become disruptive in the room? Can they phrase their questions with ever heightening belligerence and hatred? I think they know they can't."

Hahahaha! He was brilliant. He danced on their heads.

One reason I'm delighted about this is we had our PM Abbott destroyed by a press campaign of fake news: innuendo that he was having an affair with his secretary Peta Credlin (total BS as we now know), a video of him consoling troops about a death, because he didn't give a formal politician speech they were able to make man-to-man sympathy look callous. Bastard press.

It is so great to see how Trump can handle this stuff, it's unorthodox but it works. To hell with bureaucratic precedent and Hollywood stereotypes if it means you are controlled by the opposition.

Bruce: Trump's kind of like Mr. Smith goes to Washington - but with Mr. Potter playing Mr. Smith (and I mean that in a good way).
