The Patriot Post® · Deranged Leftmedia Blasts Trump Over Debatable Issue
A sure sign of Trump Derangement Syndrome manifested by those who have fallen for this self-inflicted malady is the inability to honestly assess and report on both the words and actions of President Donald Trump. Those suffering from this intellectually debilitating condition interpret everything President Donald Trump says and does as being yet more evidence of him being nothing more than a narcissistic, illegitimate, bumbling clown — or Hitler. In other words, they can see no good in him. Therefore, those caught in this condition, like the Leftmedia, believe it is their duty to report only and always negatively about Trump, twisting his words if they must, in order to prove to the American people that Trump is the worst thing that’s happened to this country since the time change.
Out of this Trump Derangement echo chamber, Americans on a daily basis are fed stories like this one from The Washington Post titled, “In Fundraising speech, Trump says he made up trade claim in meeting with Justin Trudeau.” In the article, the Post blasted Trump for supposedly lying and then bragging about it. The Post asserted that Trump’s claim of the U.S. having a trade deficit with Canada is a total fabrication, but, as is often the case, the truth of the matter is not so simple. There is currently a debate as to whether the U.S. is actually running a trade deficit with Canada, as Trump has asserted. But what the Post’s reporters failed to do, due to their anti-Trump bias, is admit that the issue is not so cut and dried as they insinuate. Moreover, they blatantly mischaracterized Trump’s lighthearted and off-the-cuff remarks in an obvious bid to make Trump look foolish.
The Post noted that Trump made his remarks at a political fundraiser for Republican candidate Josh Hawley, who is taking on Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), but the paper then seemed to willfully mistake the rally for a press conference. The Post seemed appalled that Trump didn’t address the Leftmedia’s narrative on everything from the worn-out Russian collusion conspiracy to the alleged Stormy Daniels affair. The Post also railed against Trump for daring to tout his presidential achievements thus far. Once again, this was a fundraising rally for a GOP Senate candidate.
There is such a thing as legitimate journalism that is fair and honest in covering Trump, and then there is the leftist #Resistance echo chamber of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Unfortunately, most of the mainstream media finds itself deep in the throes of the latter.
