NEW YORK -- Charlottesville. Helsinki. The children in cages at the Mexican border.

And now Lafayette Square.

Only a few legacy-defining moments have clung to President Donald Trump, who often appears to emerge relatively unscathed from a seemingly endless stream of crises and controversies. But the forceful clearing of demonstrators from the park across from the White House has resonated like few others, prompting top military leaders and usually lockstep Republicans to distance themselves from him.

The writer is living in an alternate reality.

Nobody cares about the Lafayette Park cleaning

Only a swamp creature would think a small thing that happened in his city is worth bringing down a presidency. Never mind that the mayor took no action as the crowds were assaulting the secret service agents.

Big Media is concerned about Trump’s chances for re-election today.

Here’s another posted a few minutes earlier here:

Indeed. The AP is really clutching at straws here.

I'm reminded of that Howard Stern jokester call-in during the OJ Bronco chase back in '94..."I see AP...and they be scared."

Why post this garbage? I mean seriously. Find something positive regarding our president, instead of this mental masturbation that gives me un-needed stress in the morning.

The writer of this idiocy is out of touch with reality. The left lives in a fantasy world in which their imagination substitutes for reality.

Pravda. When Russians read the newspaper they knew the truth was precisely the opposite of what was written. So it is with the US Pravda. Precisely the opposite is true. That is why they seek to deceive.

To: I want the USA back

the writer Jonathan Lemire’s twitter page is a FakeNewsMSM swamp:

Twitter: Jonathan Lemire, House reporter for @AP Political analyst for @MSNBC & @NBCNewsEx-@NYDailyNews
Lemire re-tweeted 2h ago: Morning Joe: Weds. guest list: Jonathan Lemire, Michael Steele, Dr. Vin Gupta, Ben Collins, Jake Sherman, Claire McCaskill, Yamiche Alcindor, Sherrilyn Ifill, Rep. Karen Bass, Sen. James Lankford, David Ignatius, Robert Gates, John Dickerson and more...

Lemire tweet 3h ago: “If Biden were to notch a narrow victory, Trump could look to contest the results and claim he’d actually won. He could put the military and other tools of power in an awkward spot, pressuring them to pick sides and untangle competing claims about who won”
LINK The Atlantic

Lemire re-tweeted 20h ago: Pervaiz Shallwani@Pervaizistan
NEW: Martin Gugino, the 75-year-old protester who was pushed by two Buffalo police officers, has a fractured skull and is not able to walk, according to a statement his lawyer sent
@CNN today...

Lemire re-tweeted 22h ago: AP Politics: Even as Joe Biden faces pressure to pick a black running mate, Elizabeth Warren remains a top contender. Some black leaders praise the white Massachusetts Democrat’s progressive values, economic populism and policy proposals that could bring social change.

Most people think the Lafayette Park cleaning needed to happen on a large scale in cities across America.

Desperate media propaganda. They hope their nonstop barrage of bias and hate will get legs but they abandoned all credibility long ago.

The president’s bungled church photo op has, according to polling, generated widespread sympathy for the demonstrations and sparked fears in Trump’s campaign it could be a breaking point for voters who cast their ballots for the Republican in 2016 but are uncertain this time.

Biden is “white privilege” on two legs.

Shouldn’t Biden step aside and let Cory Booker take his place as the Democratic candidate?

Cory Booker supports the same policies but isn’t senile.

They repeated the (Obama) caged children lie, but sidestepped the “teargas” lie with the use of “chemical agents”.

To the “writer” of this yellow rag: The “writer” is your typical confused, no-integrity, dishonest, misinformed, politics-driven nitwit. I stopped reading this pathetic drivel when it said “children in cages at the border”. Hey, oaf...that was under the Greatest Fraud Ever. Resign you position immediately and roam the country begging for forgiveness, you worthless clod. Poltroons like you are an embarrassment to civil humanity.
