re: The Offical Trump Presidency Thread: David Duke approved

So ... what's the pro-Trump spin on today's events? Do we blame race division on Obama? Clinton's bipartisan legislation was too hard on crime? That peanut farmer? Social justice warriors? Is this simply non-affiliated road rage? My favorite Tweet so far is that this was a deep state false flag attack from Obama and Clinton. So easy.

I keep saying that Trump doesn't have much real support, and was propped up by "Rank and File" Republicans, combined with a few percent of the alt-right types. To me, these are the angry people who actually tipped the election in his favor. This kind of makes sensible Republicans complicit to a point (primaries are meant to weed out candidates like Trump). Harshly denouncing and keeping that denouncement in the public consciousness could (and should) force these people out of GOP support and defect to a third party. A cleansing. Then we'll regroup, vote, and see where we are.

He really needs to learn some alternate words to at least seem sincere.

No joke. In the last couple weeks he has taken a shit on a group that is honorably serving their country and thumbed his nose to that group that has honorably served and died for their country, thanked Putin, and couldn't renounce neo-natzies.

He once said he could shoot someone in time square and he would not lose his base. I really think that is up next.

This will be the turning point. He must be asked over and over why he will not immediately condemn white supremacists. He must be asked again and again. A US citizen was killed over this. He must be asked again and again. If he is, it's over. This is the turning point.

A terrible day. Lord, in your mercy.

And yet, he won't be asked again and again. I imagine it'll be asked a few times at the daily press conference, a non-answer will be given several times, and then the Trump shit show will move on to another story, and the media will fall for it...again.

He'll never talk about this again. and I doubt he'll do his promised press conference on Monday either.

He just used the same words to describe a murder that he uses to describe his opponents. Seems about right. Sad!

If the media won't hold him accountable, who holds the media accountable? How do we do that?

I don't blame the media. They will have limited or no access to Trump and then Trump will do something terrible next week and eventually this will all pass again because if you only get one question for Trump, how do you choose from the myriad of horrible things he's done?

That's why they so often stick to the topics of the moment. No one is asking about Don Jr. or Kellyanne's promise that he'd make a decision on the exchanges.

Without engaging them, Trump wouldn't have won the 2016 election. It's not a big percent. But it was enough.

We really are to the point where logic and reason do not aply. We have an act of terrorism on US soil and POTUS will not denounce the group responsible. Yes I know we don't know anything about the driver. And that's not the point. No matter who it was they should be persecuted to the full extent of the law.

Actually, I think the media should work together. They should collaborate and have a unified game plan. CNN should hammer the shit out of the topic. If CNN gets their cred's pull then NBC would share their notes and video w/CNN. And they should pick up where CNN dropped off.

Right now he is using the threat of access against them. If they work as a group...what's he going to do? No more press? He couldn't handle that.

Oh I'm sure there will be at least one news organization that doesn't get banned...

Exactly. Fox would never play ball so they'd end up with all of the access.

I always thought Obama was "likable". But as a POTUS I thought he was middle of the road.

And while Trump has a raging hard on to undo anything to do with Obama, all it does is make me think how awesome Obama was. And how we (I) under appreciated him.

This. But the MSM is in collusion with the establishment of both parties.
