It’s the Trumpster’s lap dog, FOX News. It is worse than Pravda at its height; speaking of that, not one Russian news station carried the news of the protests in 99 Russian cities on Sunday. According to one article “Indeed, all of the state run channels ignored the rallies.” Imagine if we only had Fox news that is what would have happened in America.
Over a thousand people were arrested in Russia for protesting peacefully. The leader of the protest Aleksei A. Navalny was sentenced the day after the rally to 15 days in prison for resisting arrest. That’s the quick justice you get in Russia. He’ll have more time heaped on top of that. I bet the London bookmakers have it 50/50 that he will be murdered in prison although it will be reported he died of a heart attack. When he is murdered some will start talking about civilians being killed in Yemen to pretend Putin murdering his foes is equivalent to American defending its nation.
One thing remarkable about the nationwide rallies in Russia is that they were carried out mostly by young people. Why the young. One 26-year-old man who joined the protest commented: “Younger people have smarter eye. Elder people have rigid brains; watching Channel One is a routine for them – they switch it on to see what is Channel One telling us. Everything’s good, Mashka the cat had kittens yesterday.”
Hearing that I thought that is the type of reporting that can be heard on FOX. Add to that the rigid brains and you see the results. The election of the Trumpster.
Also listening to that young man and seeing the crowds of faces of young Russian men and women disgusted with Putin (isn’t it strange Trumpster and his rigid brain followers admire the man) I could not but think how courageous these young people are. In Russia standing up to the government can be met with a brutal response unlike here where there is no real consequence.
How bad is FOX? Well the Trumpster spent his time golfing on Saturday. It was the twelfth time he’s been on the golf course in his nine weeks as president. Numerous people sent out photographs him on the course.
What has that got to do with FOX. @FoxNews tweeted on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. a “News Alert” Here is the alert: “@POTUS spending weekend working at the White House.” You want fake news well that just about tops it although in the alt-fact world perhaps the Trumpster feels he is working when he is playing golf.
But that is not the worst part of it. What is ludicrous is that FOX apparently thinks it is breaking news for the Trumpster to work at the White House over the weekend. FOX itself has so little regard for the president’s work habits that had he worked up to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday it considered it breaking news. As one site had it: “Everyone’s Laughing at this Fox News Tweet about Trump’s “Weekend Working.”
The Trumpster believes Putin’s approval rating is in the mid-eighties and envies him. Putin’s state-run media tabulated the poll numbers. Poor Trumpster has to live with the fake polls in the United States that shows his approval rating at 36% the all time lowest for any president. We know if FOX took the poll Trumpster too would be as high as Putin.
I have to ask this. Has there ever been a president who has stumbled and bumbled as much as Trumpster during his first sixty some odd days. The only thing I see that he has done is to push his poll numbers lower and lower. Unfortunately for him his golf score is going in the opposite direction even though he has been on the golf course a little over every fifth day since he has been in office. Although I do not begrudge him his golf, at least while his mind is on playing that game America can get a respite from him.
Didn’t he say when running for office he’d have no time for golf? I’m not a golfer. The main reason was I could not see spending the time that the sport required. It is good to know the Trumpster can handle his new job so easily.
Even you who worship at the altar of the Trumpster have to admit the guy is sort of a dunce. He’s planning to spend billions upon billions on the Great Mexican Wall. On Sunday he tweeted: “General Kelly is doing a great job at the border. Numbers are way down. Many are not even trying to come in anymore.” Isn’t the natural question one would ask is why if that is the case do we need a wall?
Speaking of tweeting he did a few on Monday night. He did complained about the intelligence committee not investigating Hillary and Bill (do you think he knows Hillary is planning to run against him again?) He wrote “Trump Russia story is a hoax.” He probably also believes the stories of the Sunday demonstrations were a hoax because he did not read anything about them in the Russian newspapers.
At least we know one thing, he will never speak out in support of Russians seeking a less corrupt government.
