Trump Plans to ‘Slam and Shame the Media’ Over Mueller Report Findings

Trump Plans to ‘Slam and Shame the Media’ Over Mueller Report Findings

“This is like Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone’s vault all over again…”

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/881503147168071680

I wonder how much CNN’s Jim Acosta hurt when he tweeted out that an adviser to President Donald Trump said that the media can expect him to “slam and shame the media” over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The adviser also said that the findings are “like Geraldo Rivera and Al Capone’s vault all over again.”

Thing is, some in the media and Democrats cannot accept the fact that Mueller found no collusion between Trump and Russia or obstruction of Justice.

Axios reported that the Mueller report matters because most of the people in the country will agree with Trump and Trump will likely “use it to cast doubt on investigations by House Democrats, or by other state and federal officials.” A USA Today/Suffolk poll from March 18 showed that 50% of Americans agreed with Trump that Trump was a victim of a witch hunt.

Trump’s Responses

As much as Trump loves to criticize the media, something makes me think that he may not go all in on a media-bashing storm.

Trump tweeted three times on Sunday:

The media confronted Trump on the report before he boarded Air Force One in Florida and after he landed in Washington, DC. Both incidents came off as very un-Trump like.

As of 8:02AM, Trump has only retweeted those tweets and added a few more:

Democrats, Media Will Not Give Up

However, if the Democrats and media don’t stop their insane behavior, I hope Trump lashes out at them. Despite Mueller’s findings, some in the media and Democrats have tried to spin it in their favor. They come out looking desperate and crazy.

Adam Schiff, who claimed that he had direct evidence that proved collusion, tweeted that nothing should be believed without the full report. Notice how he only mentioned Attorney General Bill Barr. No mention of how Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has no love for Trump, also came to the same conclusions.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer somehow believe that the summary raised more questions than answers. Um, really?

Others stretched the truth as well:

Unlikely Voice of Reason

AL SHARPTON. Al Sharpton emerged as the unlikely voice of reason for the left. He agreed Mueller’s report is a victory for Trump and encouraged Democrats to move on to actual policies:

Trump should tweet a picture of empty handcuffs leaving the Whitehouse with him waving goodbye.

And add the caption to the photo, “Lock her up.”

    thalesofmiletus in reply to legacyrepublican. | March 25, 2019 at 9:21 am

    Now that Bueller, or whatever his name was, is finished, all the evidence needs to be under lock-and-key and the investigation into an apparent failed coup attempt against a lawfully elected president needs to begin.

    “Lock her up” indeed. Promises made — promises kept?

“Adam Schiff, who claimed that he had direct evidence that proved collusion, tweeted that nothing should be believed without the full report.”

Adam Schiff has nothing, if he did, it would’ve been leaked to the press long, long ago. These people are so shameless.

    If Schiff and the rest had anything, they should have turned it over to Mueller already. But they didn’t and Trump has been exonerated on Russia collusion and obstruction of justice.

    There is no point debating the meaning of “exonerated”. For the purpose of impeachment it’s like Pelosi said, without compelling evidence, it is utterly foolish to pursue it. Where is the COMPELLING evidence?

    Trump winning the 2016 election NOT an impeachable offense. By now, most Dem voters see it for what it is and that will only get worse if the Dem leadership doesn’t rein the insanity in.

    Adam’s not know as Schiff-Head for nothing…….

“What about your collusion stories?” should join “What about the Dardanelles?” and “What about Sadam’s WMDs?” as taunting reminders of epic failures.

    Milhouse in reply to Tregonsee. | March 25, 2019 at 10:07 am

    Saddam Hussein did have WMDs; the fact that he not have the sort of massive stockpile of ready-to-use weapons that everyone feared was a lucky break, not something anyone could or should have known in advance. The evidence shows that even he thought he had such a stockpile, so there was no way anyone outside Iraq could have known he didn’t. And in fact while the stockpile seems not to have existed, or not to have been in readily usable condition, his nuclear research programs were more advanced than anyone thought, ready to go into production the moment the sanctions went away.

    In any event, the concern about this stockpile played no role in the decision that Hussein had to be removed; its significance was only in the decision on the timing of this removal. Had it been known that this stockpile didn’t exist, the Iraq invasion could have been postponed for a year or two, while more urgent problems like Afghanistan and North Korea were dealt with.

      Hundreds of thousands murdered by Saddam, gassing the Kurds, draining the marshes, Iran-Iraq War, attack on U.S. Warship, Kuwait, hundreds of tons of yellow cake….sometimes one has to take a dictator at his word and from his actions.

      As with Afghanistan, it is what we weren’t prepared to do after victory that remains the issue. Converting tribal societies to nation states is not a short term option if ever. Look at Africa after colonial departure and the attempt to splinter USA with modern day tribal theory (i.e. intersectionalism).

      clintack in reply to Milhouse. | March 25, 2019 at 11:45 am

      The victims of Assad’s chemical weapons in Syria suggest another possibility for the missing WMDs…

      n.n in reply to Milhouse. | March 25, 2019 at 3:30 pm

      Exactly. Iraq had a history of possession and use of WMD. The evidence was that Hussein possessed and sought the precursors to developing WMD, and was in progress to constructing the resources for their processing and deployment. The decision to end the decade-long Iraq war, did not rest on the existence of WMD, but multiple other factors, including a persistent intransigence to the terms of the ceasefire and humanitarian concerns.

    Actually, the Dardanelles were just as much Jackie Fisher’s and Asquith’s baby, if not more so, as it was made out to be Winston Churchill’s. Churchill actually would’ve preferred to go after the Heligoland Bight.

    Let’s also not forget that Churchill, in many ways, IMHO, more than made up for any supposed Dardanelles errors with his strong support of the Tank, his support of the RAF, post-WWI, and his shepherding the British through a tough time in 1940-1942.

I’ve had it up to my eyeballs with the Dems and their shills the msm.

So, here’s my plan….

I will pay attention to what our President and any clearly on his side have to say. But I’m going to hit the mute button on travel to elsewhere on the web when I hear or see a Dem or a Never Trumper yapping about the Mueller investigation.

AND…I will sharpen my claws and ready my ammo supply for the inevitable conflict that will occur when DJT wins in 2020.

A partial plan of crawling under a rock so as to preserve my sanity in my Golden Years.

I will not let these Dems and their shills the msm ruin my final years on Earth!

    Good suggestion..

    I just muted Juan Williams. Felt great.

      PersonofInterests in reply to amwick. | March 28, 2019 at 2:41 pm

      Don’t forget to mute Shep Smith, Geraldo Rivera, Marie Harf, Donna Brazile, Lyin Paul Ryan, and Chris Wallace.

      The Murdoch Boys can silence Judge Jeanine, Bill O’Reilly, Eric Boling, and dismiss Roger Ailes, but yet hire Donna “The Presidential Debate Question Leaker” Brazile??

      Isn’t it amazing how libtard sons can screw up a business by bending over for Media Matters and other George Soreazz hate groups, but will let the aforementioned trash take up space with their demtard socialist garbage without a thought.

      I havent’ watched Fox since the Hit Job Attempt by Chris Wallace and Megyno Kelly on Candidate Donald Trump during the first Republican Primary Debate. Fuggem.

The FBI and DOJ are no different than the Russian secret police at this point.

Everyone involved in this sham investigation, top to bottom, should be investigated in the same manner the investigation into President Trump occurred.

Clean house. If that doesn’t happen no American will have any faith in justice at a federal level.

In other words Muler could not prove a negative.

The AG says directly that without a crime there can be no obstruction. Full stop on the whole “obstruction” meme.

    Eddie Baby in reply to Dave. | March 25, 2019 at 10:41 am

    I’m glad he followed that line of logic otherwise we are living in a total police state where the authorities can open an investigation on anybody without any evidence and then charge a person with obstruction of justice for contesting a phony investigation.

    clintack in reply to Dave. | March 25, 2019 at 11:49 am

    He didn’t. He said that the absence of an underlying crime “bears upon the President’s intent with respect to obstruction.”

Consider this whole thing as two problems, one involving “enemies foreign”, the other “enemies domestic”.

This first one is summarized as “collusion”; a serious matter for any President, or any other US government official. With Mueller’s report, the D’rats have lost this fight, and the public is likely to ignore any feeble D’rat attempts to keep it alive.

The second is “obstruction”. This is not the great crime “collusion” would have been; a Republican President is supposed to fight the D’rats. That’s why we have a Republican party; the R’s are not supposed to “work across the aisle”—certainly not on the big issues, like increase in the number of slave states, or the monotonic growth of the socialist state. The perception that he’s fighting the D’rats won’t hurt DJT with the public at large.

So while Mueller’s weasel report may have left a crack for the D’rats to try to exploit, even if feebly, it’s only the “obstruction” part of the attack, the relatively unimportant charge.

Aside from the public at large, a credible charge of cooperation with a foreign power to pervert the government could carry considerable weight with R’s in the Senate, making an impeachment not entirely impossible. Not so if the charge is merely resisting the Democrats. Not even the most contrary Rs will vote against the President for that.

So whatever noise they make and whatever tricks the D’s plan for the future, the impeachment movement has taken a fatal pounding with this damp squib of a report.

Now . . . the D’s will continue to make noise and wallow in tough talk, even though it’s become hopeless, because they have nothing else. However, that doesn’t mean the press will follow them. They do seem to be serioulsy bothered by DJT’s constant barrage of “fake news” accusations, and now that Mueller has conclusively demonstrated that he’s right—they have been dishing out fake news for the past two years—they may feel considerable pressure to go lighter on more “fake news” the D’rats will continue to feed them about their anti-Trump campaign.

So DJT’s tweets are perfectly sensible—a constant reminder to the press that it need not follow the D’rats down the toilet, even if the D’rats themselves can’t avoid it.

In a different period of history one could invite top Dems, GOPe types and press to tour Capone’s safe a la Edgar Allen Poe….bricks and cement anyone?

Does anyone else notice that Mueller asserted that Russia hacked the DNC servers, thus neatly closing off more inquiryt as to how WikiLeaks got the info, stating that WikiLeaks got it from Russia, which it DENIES.

So, Seth Rich’s death is ignored, WikiLeaks is smeared, and the DNC’s abject stupidity (or just John Podesta’s?) is papered over. . . .

And what about ANWAN???? And why aren’t the dems hiring talented AMERICAN black computer techs if they’re so desperate for diversity????

Calling the dems a cesspool is an insult to cesspools.

    Valerie in reply to Close The Fed. | March 25, 2019 at 11:33 am

    Yeah, we noticed.

    All the evidence that it was NOT a hack, but a leak from a local source, is still out there. By the time skilled, private citizens began making these inquiries, they had learned all about the need to archive.

    iconotastic in reply to Close The Fed. | March 25, 2019 at 11:42 am

    I saw that and was fascinated by that assertion.

    The last I had read, the DNC still refused FBI access to DNC computers and logs. This means that without reliable forensic review of the logs there is no way that this assertion (Russian hacking) can be proven. CrowdStrike, a conflicted DNC contractor, cannot be trusted to determine truth. Certainly the document issued by the Obama administration regarding the alleged hack was utterly unconvincing to any cyber security professional. Use of out of date malware didn’t seem terribly likely for a state-actor either.

    And this leaves out the claim by Wikileaks that the emails did not come from Russia as well as the claim by the Nation that the files were too large to download in the time it took. Both claims might well be inaccurate but without examining the servers and logs it is impossible to refute.

    Elzorro in reply to Close The Fed. | March 25, 2019 at 12:16 pm

    The goods have been swept under the rug. What a scam. All the evidence hidden in the deep state vaults to protect the crooked.

Close The Fed | March 25, 2019 at 11:09 am

Excuse me – that the Russians hacked Hillary. . . .

And who hacked the DNC? Is Seth Rich watching?

    It was obviously not a hack. Too much data to hack and the evidence of how it was taken has been hidden. There are ways to determine who had access and for how long. It was probably someone simply copying the information on a disk and giving that information to Wikileaks. That person was killed. Why else would Wikileaks offer a reward for his killer?

This has not been the first time Al Sharpton has been an Unlikely Voice of Reason. And, he will probably be punished for it, as he was, before.

Al Sharpton and Newt Gingrich got together and made very reasonable and presentations on the subject of education. That level of co-operation between them was apparently too much for the Democrat Party, and there was a full-court press, led by Rachel Maddow, to mischaracterize and reject every part of the discussion.

When I tried to go back and find the original speeches, I found them buried by articles and video castigating Newt for things he never said.

That’s when I seriously started looking for a new web search engine, and it was years before DuckDuckGo matured enough for my purposes.

As for the education issue, we got Common Core, instead of the sensible proposals these men advanced.

It’s amusing that many people are upset when President Trump tweets and then complain when he doesn’t tweet.

I hope that Trump and the Rs in Congress concentrate on policy issues, judges, trade talks, and so on. Let the Ds continue to be crazy.

I saw this comment somewhere and I agree with it – if everyone is so concerned with foreign influence in politics, then US citizenship and proper identification should be an easy solution.

Wow. What letter did Jennifer Rubin read?

She used to be quite reasonable.

    molonlabe28 in reply to clintack. | March 25, 2019 at 1:46 pm

    I don’t know when that was.

    All she has done at WaPo for the last 5 or 6 years has been serving as a closeted Democrat who masquerades as a neocon.

    She has served as a foil to the cause of conservatism at every juncture.

    And she sees red when the topic of President Trump arises.

    She is what passes as “right-leaning” by WaPo, which is more of a comment on it than on her.

    But I’m sure glad to see that she is unhappy.

    I want her to stay that way.

Interestingly, a fair amount of the media (including CNN) are trying to recapture a fig leaf of credibility by acknowledging that the Mueller investigation was a staggering bust.

The Democrats in Congress, not so much.

They will come to regret their myopic focus on sliming the President with bogus charges.

All the while, the President will be building a wall and embarking on other elements of his domestic and foreign policies.

They’re barking dogs.

And they will soon appear that way to the voters.

MAGA!!!
