I'm Tired Of This -- I Think We All Are

Yesterday, the House passed two important immigration bills, the President's executive order temporarily stopping entry to the USA for people from six countries with terrorism problems went into effect, the Senate GOP dropped plans to get a revised healthcare bill in place before the weekend, and the new president of South Korea came to the White House.  So what was the big story covered by the media?  President Trump said in a tweet that Mika from Morning Joe had been bleeding from a face lift when she came to Mar-a-Lago over New Year's Eve.  Really, the tweet was the big story in the news.

I'm tired of this nonsense.  Anyone who ever looked at Mika on TV can see that she has had work done.  Many aging women (Mika is 50) in TV news have had cosmetic surgery.  It's no big deal.  But President Trump said she was bleeding; oh no!  This is suddenly a threat to the Republic!  The media is going crazy!  In the last twenty years, we had Bill Clinton who had sex with an intern in the Oval Office, but the same media said it was "just sex" and no big deal.  We had Barack Obama who set the IRS on his political enemies, ran guns to the Mexican cartels, left Americans to die in Benghazi and lied about it, and used lies to sell Obamacare to the American people.  For the media, however, Obama could do no wrong.  But now, when Trump comments on Mika's facelift, all hell breaks loose.

Simply put, I don't care one bit if Mika Brzezinski had a facelift or not.  I don't care if Mika is depressed, crazy, or low-IQ.  The truth is that essentially no one across America cares about it either.  No one watches Mika.  My guess is that if you showed a picture of Mika and Joe, her co-host on Morning Joe, to 1000 Americans at random, fewer than 100 would even be able to identify her.  Nevertheless, the media is treating this latest tweet as if it is the equivalent of the start of World War III. 

I realize that the media wants to destroy Trump.  This Mika tweet is just a reason for the pompous fools on TV to condemn the President.  But again, no one cares unless they are already one of the Trump-haters.  The media keeps saying, "but he's the president of the United States, and he should not do this."  Again, I don't care.  He's a human being who has been relentlessly and dishonestly attacked by these same media people.  They lie, then they lie again, and then they lie some more.  They say vicious things about the President, attack his wife and his children, even his pre-teen son Barron.  They think that's fine and that President Trump should just sit there and take it.  They attack everything he does with lies.  Just today the New York Times had to retract a story it wrote that US intelligence agencies agree that the Russians were trying to help elect Trump last fall.  It's not true, so the Times finally took it back. 

Look, there is a job for the media to do.  Most important, it should tell people what is happening in the world.  That's right, it should report on the actual news.  It should report that news TRUTHFULLY.  There can be different points of view; we all understand that.  There cannot be different facts, however. 

What we have now from the media is not news.  It's complete BS.  I want the media to stop with the phony claims of victimhood.  I want the media to stop with the Fake News.  I want the media to be honest.  I'm tired of all the crap the media is pushing -- I think we all are.
