President Trump’s White House speech on Thursday featured everything from calling the Russia investigation “bulls—t” to friendly ribbing of prominent GOP allies, all while agitating many members of the mainstream media who found a multitude of issues with the East Room event.
The Senate on Wednesday acquitted the president on both articles of impeachment following a weeks-long trial, and Trump described Thursday’s speech as a “celebration.” He was greeted by thunderous applause and a standing ovation by his supporters as many reporters immediately took to Twitter to criticize the process. Many negatively compared the scene to a campaign rally, while CNN’s Jim Acosta complained that it sounded like the president was “answering the questions he wishes reporters would ask.”
New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait ruminated that Trump probably wanted to make similar remarks during Tuesday’s State of the Union but was reined in by staffers.
“Seems extremely likely Trump wanted to get his grievances off his chest in SOTU, and aides prevailed on him to save it for special post-acquittal speech, promised him ‘Hail to the Chief’ and a full room,” Chait wrote.
The president thanked his supporters and legal team, called the impeachment process “evil,” complimented the physique of Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said House Minority Whip Steve Scalise became more “handsome” after being shot and even praised the “incredible” deep voice of Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, during the celebratory speech. But when he described the Russia investigation as “bulls—t,” liberal critics really turned up the heat.
Walter Shaub called Trump “a disgrace to the office,” NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell seemed to disapprove he used the term in the East Room, CNN’s Keith Boykin called for the “civility police” and dozens of other reporters chimed in to condemn the comment.
As Trump’s detractors complained about the foul language, supporters quoted him as if it was a badge of honor. New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi, a frequent CNN guest, even urged people to stop “pearl clutching” over the remark.
“I’m sure there are plenty of other things to take issue with here,” she wrote. “The fact that this president curses shouldn’t be very high on the list. Grow up.”
Meanwhile, CNN’s Chris Cillizza called it “appalling,” while his colleague Joe Lockhart even suggested that the president is suffering from some sort of illness.
“People really should find the answer of why Trump had an unscheduled emergency trip to Walter Reed a few months ago,” Lockhart tweeted. ‘My guess is it had something to do with today’s performance.”
NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck put together a montage of CNN personalities bashing the speech.
“The story is not the particulars of what he said. The story is he sounded nuts. I don’t see why the media has such trouble explaining that,” Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin wrote.
CNN’s chyron labeled the speech polarizing speech “vindictive & vulgar,” which has been praised by Trump supporters but mocked by critics.
Ask me if I care.
The Main Stream Media stopped being objective a long, long time ago.
Just like the “dancing monkeys” out in Hollyweird, the Main Stream Media are nothing nowadays but the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.
The geniuses in the MSM seem to forget that President Donald J. Trump is not a professional politician.
He is a businessman.
He does not follow political protocol.
Yes, he knows how to conduct himself among Heads of State. He has conducted business all around the world.
He is a straight shooter. That is why average Americans between the coasts are going to reelect him in a political landslide.
They’re tired of taking a back seat to “political expediencies”.
Yesterday, President Trump was doing what every good CEO does after his team achieves a major success.
He thanks them.
Yes, he called the attempted coup by the Democrats “Bullsh*t” because that is exactly what it was.
What did the Democrat sycophants in the MSM expect him to say,
“Thank you for Impeaching me over unimpeachable charges.” ?
Let’s face it. The Main Stream Media are clutching their pearls and Pelosi and company are experiencing a group psychological break because of three basic facts:
- Trump is fulfilling his Campaign Promises in spite of everything they have thrown at him to stop him.
- He fights back.
- He will be reelected.
The Main Stream Media are truly living up to the name that the President gave them:
Until He Comes,
