Skip to comments.The Media Is Handing Trump A Second Term
Posted on 05/18/2018 6:43:42 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Its often said that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results. In the case of President Donald Trump and the media, there really are two sides to this coin.
Whenever Trump uses provocative and at times deliberately offensive terminology ― maybe its shithole or rapists or more recently animals ― an all too familiar cycle plays out like a rerun of a bad reality-TV show.
First, you must remember that Trump is the emotional equivalent of a 5-year-old. Like a child, his actions are driven by positive reinforcement. When Trump talks tough on immigration, his base loves it. After all, Trump spent a year on the campaign trail basking in chants of build the wall. It was no accident that Trump selected parents of MS-13 gang victims to be his guests during this years State of the Union address. The standout moment won Trump effusive praise and headlines from the Fox News and Breitbart world, reinforcing his view that the address was a success. To Trump, this is a winning issue that he will return to over and over again.
But politically, he is also banking on the idea that the media will react strongly to any such comments. These condemnations then allow Trump and his allies to reinforce their narrative that the mainstream media has it out for him and that the political left would rather protect drug-dealing Mexican gang members than innocent American families. This is the script that unfolded this week.....

Is there anything a liberal doesn’t think she knows?
She’s right that Trump’s kicking their ass everyday, but she still doesn’t get why. He’s smarter than them and they still don’t get it.
I almost agree with this.
They really don’t get it.
Not even now.
They absolutely are and they’re exposing themselves as the hyper-partisan pukes they’ve always been in the process.
The LEFT was beaten by a five year old. Bwaaaahaaahaaahaaa!
I read the entire article trashing Trump.
The greatest surprise was the former deep state author..
Kurt Bardella is a contributor to NBC News Think. He is a former spokesman for House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-Calif.).
Right, Trump has the emotional intellect of a 5 years old. News for the article, that 5 year old is kicking their asses every day, and there isn’t a think they can or will do about. Kick ass, Mr. President. They love the leather in their asses.
5 Year Olds... own 2 Year Olds.
Rememberthis guy believes that Hillary is an honest person.
And, this idiot is complaining others in the media are handing Trump a second term?
Look at the job history of the as author. Real sad.
They used the same playbook against Reagan and had the same results
He politically shoved it up there asp.
Hillary couldn’t beat a five year old if she had three times as much money, 90% of the media in her pocket and the Federal government cheating for her!
Oh, wait, she did have the money, the media and the FedMob. LOLOL
the thing is, Trump has called MS13 animals numerous times, both during the campaign, and since he’s been president. I don’t recall any uproar about any of the other times. That’s why I think this whole uproar has been scripted. I’m not sure why the dems think that voters will respond positively to their defense of MS13.
The glaring fact that the media lied about what Trump said doesn’t even register in this guy’s “analysis”.
reinforce their narrative that the mainstream media has it out for him and that the political left would rather protect drug-dealing Mexican gang members than innocent American families.
It’s not a narrative, it’s true.
I think North Korea, China, Iran, and Saudi Arabia think much differently or nothing would have gotten done benefiting America. Election night showed who the five year olds are especially women blubbering in tears and the candidate who can't take responsibility for not getting her way.
If Trump had lost does anyone think he would have a stompey foot tantrum for 18 months?
LOL a 5-year old beat an old hag. Good enough for me..
