Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Tired of all this Winning yet? – The ADP non-farm payroll employment report for July was released yesterday, and of course studiously ignored by our fake national news media. That’s because the report yet again came in well above expectations, sporting a whopping 219,000 new jobs added vs. analyst projections of 185,000. Good news for President Trump and the American people = no coverage at CNN, the NYTimes or any of the major TV networks. It’s a rule or something.
Speaking of CNN, whiny little Jimmy Acosta, who spends his time injecting poison into the nation’s bloodstream from the White House press room 5 days every week, took to Twitter last night to accuse Fox News host Sean Hannity of…wait for it…wait for it…INJECTING POISON INTO THE NATION’S BLOODSTREAM!
I kid you not, the guy who is the literal poster child for the #Fakenews Poison Injecting Association of America got all pissy (which is what he does best) about Hannity’s CNN-bashing opening monologue. Here’s the tweet:
Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night. He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist. But he’s injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream warping public attitudes about the press. I’m confident in the long run the truth will prevail.

Don’t you love how this professional purveyor of news fakery adds that he’s “confident in the long run that truth will prevail”? No doubt that will indeed ultimately happen, but Littly Jimmy won’t like it when it does.
Acosta went on his little Twitter tantrum shortly after he had told one of his fellow CNN fake newsers that the Trump fans at the President’s Tuesday rally in Tampa made him feel “like we weren’t in America anymore,” and that what the President does amounts to “whipping these crowds up into a frenzy” and is “a pitting of American against American and honestly, it needs to stop.”
This is so utterly dishonest. If you watched the online live feed of the half-hour before the rally began, you saw Acosta and other members of the press laughing around with people in the crowd, giving autographs, taking selfies with them, and just generally having a good time. Acosta even sent out a tweet talking about what a good time he has having, while of course taking a false cheap shot at the President, who takes questions from the press almost every day of the week:
It was great chatting with all the Trump supporters in Tampa tonight. I took more questions from them than the president has taken from the press lately.

What Acosta and CNN do, though, is let the people know when they’re about to go live on camera and encourage them to be as loud and nasty as they can be. It’s like what the sideline camera crews do with fans at football games.
So having literally created the scene, Acosta then later takes to the air to accuse the same people with whom he’d been paling around of being un-American, and implying they’re a bunch of violence-prone rubes who can easily be whipped into a frenzy. This is literally the very definition of fake news. It is also the very definition of encouraging violence to be committed against Trump supporters by de-humanizing them, which is something CNN does every day.
Here’s reality: In all of the Trump rallies – and there have been hundreds of them since 2015, involving literally millions of Americans – the fake news media has been able to document exactly one incident in which one Trump fan actually committed an act of violence inside one of these rallies, and that was in late 2015 when one old man got mad at a younger protester who had been screaming obscenities at then-Candidate Trump while he spoke, and threw a single punch at him.
Meanwhile, during the campaign there were dozens of incidents in which Trump supporters were violently assaulted – often, as in Santa Cruz, CA, while local police stood around and did nothing – by leftist thugs as they attempted to enter or leave the rallies. Acosta and his fellow fake newsers at CNN think you’re so dumb you’ve forgotten all of that. Because, of course, you’re just a bunch of violence-prone rubes.
The truth is that it is CNN, with its constant dog-whistling for violence and absurdly false coverage of this President, that is, along with its wards in the Democrat Party, whipping up and refusing to cover the violence that is taking place on the streets of our country at an alarmingly increasing pace. Last night, Little Jimmy Acosta was simply engaging in the Democrats favorite Saul Alinsky tactic of projection – accusing your opposition of being guilty of your very own bad behavior.
But hey, he’s been coordinating his efforts with Democrats for years now, so he’s learned from the best.
Just another day in all fake news all the time America.
That is all.
