CNN Mocks Trump as “Captain Obvious,” Morning Joe wonders if his “meds have changed”
Can you imagine Gregory or Deutsch mocking President Obama like that?
Whichever poison you picked this morning—CNN or MSNBC—you would have been treated to snide shots at President Trump. On CNN, responding to President Trump’s statement that the presidency has turned out to be more work than expected, David Gregory sneered “thanks, Captain Obvious.”
Meanwhile, over on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, trying to explain President Trump’s more measured tone of late, Donny Deutsch wondered if maybe “the meds have changed.”
When Willie Geist intervened to say that there are no meds involved, Deutsch concurred, saying he was just kibitzing: “we kibitz on Morning Joe.”
However Donny might want to laugh it off, the fact that he and Gregory were willing to openly say what they did reflects the contempt in which the MSM holds President Trump. Can you imagine members of the liberal media saying something so snide about President Obama?
CHRIS CUOMO: Listen to what he said.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: I loved my previous life. I loved my previous life. I had so many things going. I actually, this is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier. I thought it was more of a — I’m a details-oriented person. I think you would say that. But I do miss my old life. I like to work, so that’s not a problem. But this is actually more work.
DAVID GREGORY: Thanks, Captain Obvious: the presidency is actually tough work.
DONNY DEUTSCH: If you really stepped back, if you just landed from Mars in the last two weeks and had listened to this president both in tone and content, you would say, you know, maybe there’s a little bit more normalcy going on.
WILLIE GEIST: So that was an Oval Office interview, so you might expect that tone. Tomorrow he’s got a rally in Pennsylvania where you’ll probably see Donald Trump from the campaign.
DEUTSCH: You might see once again a more nuanced, the volume might turn up. But there is something that has happened. I don’t know whether it’s Bannon going away, whether it’s Cohn and Kushner, whatever it is, the meds have changed, whatever it is, something has turned a bit in the last few weeks.
WILIE: There are no meds involved.
DEUTSCH: There are no meds. No meds! We kibitz here. It’s a Jewish word. We kibitz on Morning Joe.

Whichever poison you picked this morning—CNN or MSNBC
TY Mr. Finkelstein, taking 2 for LI.
My mother said, a long time ago(re POTUS), even if you don’t respect the person, you should respect the office. She has been gone a long time, so has this perspective.
This is why people in power can’t just come out and tell the truth. The “news” media is dominated by childish “personalities” (not reporters) who mock, demean and insult every single thing. And if there is nothing to mock, demean and insult, they make it up. When did the news business adopt the Ragspierre model of trolling as the standard for journalism?
You think Rags is a troll? Really? Is your definition of “troll”: “doesn’t leg-hump Donald Trump”? Oi.
Of course Rags is a troll. He consistently inserts gratuitous insults in his posts, for the purpose of provoking people.
That’s an insult to trolls.
RE: “The “news” media is dominated by childish “personalities”…”
Experts say they have the emotional development of 18 month to 24 month old babies – sociopaths/psychopaths…….
Oh yes, and those “childish personalities” like to latch onto big organizations (think big government, big universities) because they can boost the childish egos by the associations.
That’s what they experts say….just quoting….
“Whichever poison you picked this morning—CNN or MSNBC— you would have been treated to snide shots at President Trump.”
So, just like every other morning, then.
CNN and MSNBC doing what they do day in and day out.
Spreading their dangerous propaganda to damage President Trump however they can.
If I said what I truly think about them I would be banned from the site so here in code.
Dear CNN and MSNBC terminology you can understand
**** *** 🙂
First, i am not a Trump-hater nor a Trumpeteer.
Second, i could not find the question he was answering (i did a very short search), so i can’t tell if he was asked to compare his jobs, and to compare their difficulty, or if he was just offering his thoughts.
Yes, he was being honest, but i think we (conservatives) need to admit that a president should not say “I thought it would be easier” in a press conference. He shot himself in the foot, and it is not the first time.
One of the reasons he was voted in is because he is not a career politician, so we might not be so surprised when he answers questions in a way that is different than someone who has lived in Washington for years.
I think if Obama had said this, Fox would make it their headline.
Generally, this is referred to as “Being honest.” We don’t see that kind of behavior in the Common Yellow-Spined Politician that inhabits the natural environment of Washington DC.
It’s kinda nice.
During the campaign, Trump had a much higher energy level that Hillary. Look at how many times she took off to rest and how many times she looked very sick. Since Trump thinks that his job involves much more work than he imagined and still appears to be quite active on a daily basis, would Hillary have been able to keep up the pace? Or, would we be talking about a President Kaine?
Of course, I suspect that maintaining Obama’s government would have been easier – she could have kept many of the same people in the departments vs looking for replacements. And she could have just continued many of the same policies until she was ready to put her spin on things.
I wonder how Trump is defining “easier” & “harder”. Is he comparing running a business vs running a government bureaucracy? Is he looking at the Republican controlled Congress and wondering why they are not supporting him?
Trump is not giving his administration time to ease into their jobs since many of the EAs instruct them to review operations & regulations, make an action plan to reduce and improve, and report back in 90 to 180 days. DeVos got up to 300 days to review her department, but her task looks like it is to dismantle DEd by sending as much as possible back to the states.
I think Trump and everyone else is looking at the mess and wondering what have we gotten ourselves into? But, I am glad that they are working to clean it up, even though it will take longer than he imagined.
I hate to repeat this saying but to me, Trump has already won even if he doesn’t do any of the things he promised. hillary is not our president! Let that sink in for a bit before attacking Mr. Trump and his showman ways. We have a rock solid SCOTUS justice instead of some extreme liberal. We will never get the wall but did anyone expect to? We all knew that the US would not pull out of NAFTA and we knew he was not going to “Punish” China for currency manipulation. He is a walking talking tweeting mess but he has already saved our country regardless of what he now does or says. Does that mean that he is not embarrassing to watch or listen to? To me, I cannot stand to hear one of his speeches spoken at the 12-year old level with adjectives that I haven’t used since high school. But That’s just me and I am proud of my vote for him.
Amen brother. Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t fight for more conservative decisions of course.
You miss the point of what is going on.
Trump is merely the champion of a large segment of the population [about half] who have gone to war against the Progressive/Globalist Establishment. His job is to destroy the Establishment. The means to do this are immigration control, balanced trade agreements, increased domestic production and the hindering of a single payer medical insurance scheme. To be successful, he has to accomplish most of these things within the next four years. But, even if he doesn’t, he can still seriously injure the Establishment by blaming the Establishment politicians, most notably the Congressional Republicans, for his failure to accomplish these goals. That is his job. Saving babies in Syria is not. If he thought that it was something different, he has to be disabused of that notion.
I feel it is very likely that we will get a “wall” or some similar physical barrier along the southern border. It might take a while, but the man has four years to accomplish it. Trump did not say that he wanted to pull out of NAFTA. He repeatedly said that he wanted to renegotiate that treaty to make it equitable to the US. When the Congress refused to accept delivery of notification to renegotiate NAFTA, Trump was placed into the position of saying that he was planning to withdraw from NAFTA entirely, just to get Canada and Mexico to the table. As for punishing China for currency manipulation, there are still 1360 days left in his term of office and there are many avenues which would allow the US to “punish” China for said manipulation.
Trump has his failings, as do we all. But, we’re not even out of the top of the first inning yet. Sit back and enjoy the popcorn while you watch the show. As long as we do not end up in WWIV, that is.
To be fair, based on their amorous relationship with his predecessor, Trump may not have been fully prepared for the domestic assault from JournoLists of the Fourth Estate. Alas, Trump is not Democrat. Not even establishment. He is not worthy. They have made their Choice.
If he were still alive today I could imagine Grouch Marx making his famous quote once again, but about the MSM and Obama.
Grouche Marx: “I like a good cigar, but I take it out of my mouth every once and a while.”
And we have made ours.
Remember the Clinton News Network!!!!
Yes, that too.
But mostly corrupt.
Maybe tomorrow they will be back to wondering aloud why nobody believes them.
These liberal morons can’t fathom the damage obama/jarrett did to the nation – damage still being discovered.
Of course these ignoramuses have this reaction to Trump’s own reaction of how that weasel obama screwed this nation.
If there’s a writers strike next week CNN will be hit hard. They may be reduced to reporting actual real news.
