Trump Campaign Rally fuels Trump’s fantasies in the land of delusion:

“President Donald Trump at a rally in Florida Saturday again ripped the media as “fake news” and renewed pledges on Obamacare and border security in an event that appeared little changed from the rallies he gave on the campaign trail.

“They just don’t want to report the truth,” Trump told the crowd of around 9,000 in Melbourne, calling the media as “part of the problem” and “part of the corrupt system.”

“They have their own agenda, and their agenda is not your agenda,” the president said. Trump’s attacks on the media came a day after the president on Twitter called the “fake” news media “the enemy of the American people.”

Despite the fact that the 2016 election has long come and gone, the phenomena of the Trump rally felt as if it had been frozen in time, nearly perfectly preserved since the last time the then-candidate strode to the podium and told thousands of his cheering supporters about the woes of the country and the battles he planned to fight…”

Swedes scratch heads at Trump’s suggestion of major incident article from Yahoo! News. –

“HELSINKI (AP) — Swedes have been scratching their heads and ridiculing President Donald Trump’s remarks that suggested a major incident had happened in the Scandinavian country.

During a rally in Florida on Saturday, Trump said “look what’s happening last night in Sweden” as he alluded to past terror attacks in Europe. It wasn’t clear what he was referring to and there were no high-profile situations reported in Sweden on Friday night.

The comment prompted a barrage of social media reaction on Sunday, with hundreds of tweets, and a local newspaper published a list of events that happened on Friday that appeared to have no connections to any terror-like activity.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Catarina Axelsson said that the government wasn’t aware of any “terror-linked major incidents.” Sweden’s Security Police said it had no reason to change the terror threat level…”

Which is why he has to hold rallies with the moronic minions that voted for him.

“President Donald Trump reportedly isn’t adjusting well to life in the White House after his first month in office.

That’s according to Axios’ Mike Allen’s latest newsletter, in which he writes that a Trump adviser told him the president is experiencing “cabin fever” in the White House.

Trump is reportedly experiencing headaches and frustration that he can’t spend his evenings dining at restaurants like he could around Trump Tower in his old neighborhood in New York City…”

“Jake Turx is a newly minted White House correspondent for a publication that has never before had a seat in the White House press corps: Ami Magazine, an Orthodox Jewish weekly based in Brooklyn. He is a singular presence in the briefing room: a young Hasidic Jew with side curls tucked behind his ears and a skullcap embroidered with his Twitter handle.

I don’t think its any accident Trump treated reporters Jake Turx, Jim Acosta, and April Ryan like trash at his press conference. His supporters saw him doing what they would love to do to Jews, Blacks, and Latinos: being a complete douchebag…”

Pro-Trump Propaganda Outlets Are Blaming An Obama Shadow Government For Massive Anti-Trump Protests article from Media Matters. –

Because Trump’s idiocy couldn’t possibly be an issue…

“Paul Sperry: Obama Creating “Shadow Government” To “Sabotage” Trump, And His Organization “Helped Organize Anti-Trump Marches … Some Of Which Turned Into Riots.” New York Post columnist Paul Sperry wrote that former President Barack Obama is creating “what will effectively be a shadow government” to “sabotage the incoming administration” with “an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000.” Sperry claimed that “activists” involved with Obama’s nonprofit, Organizing for Action (OFA), had already organized “anti-Trump marches across US cities, some of which turned into riots.” From the February 11 column:

When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.

In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.

He’s doing it through a network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing for Action. Normally you’d expect an organization set up to support a politician and his agenda to close up shop after that candidate leaves office, but not Obama’s OFA. Rather, it’s gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country.

[…]

Obama is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account. In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory.

[…]

Far from sulking, OFA activists helped organize anti-Trump marches across US cities, some of which turned into riots. After Trump issued a temporary ban on immigration from seven terror-prone Muslim nations, the demonstrators jammed airports, chanting: “No ban, no wall, sanctuary for all!”

[…]

Obama will be overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation. [New York Post, 2/11/17]…”

“President Trump is spending the weekend at his Florida resort. On Saturday, he’ll lead a rally in Melbourne, Florida. The event comes as Mr. Trump tries to regain his footing after what’s been a tumultuous first month in office.

Mr. Trump’s administration has been criticized as chaotic and overwhelmed, but on his way to Florida for the rally organized by his campaign, he seemed right at home in front of a crowd of supporters and the backdrop of Boeing’s new flagship plane, CBS News correspondent Manuel Bojorquez reports.

“My focus has been all about jobs, and jobs is one of the primary reasons I’m standing here today as your president,” Mr. Trump said…”

Jared Kushner proves he’s as horribly corrupt as the family he married into article from the Daily Kos. –
http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/2/17/1634939/-Jared-Kushner-proves-he-s-as-horribly-corrupt-as-the-family-he-married-into

“Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner thinks his father-in-law popular vote loser Donald Trump has gotten a very bad wrap from the traditional media, so he’s going straight to the top and complaining to the parent company of one outlet to complain. There’s at least four extremely troublesome things in that single sentence, but let’s start with the obvious—what the fuck is the WH doing whining to a corporation about bad press from their owned subsidiary when that corporation is right now under federal review for a proposed merger?

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Kushner met with top executives at Time Warner—the parent company of President Trump’s least-favorite media organization CNN—to express his concern about “unfair coverage slanted against the president.” Kushner has discussed the matter of the less-than-flattering-but-definitely-accurate coverage with Time Warner VP of corporate marketing and communications Gary Ginsberg in a meeting at the White House as well as with Jeff Zucker, CNN Worldwide President.

Tangled up in this messy bit of news is the fact that AT&T is close to buying Time Warner in a massive $88.4 billion deal that’s still awaiting government approval—a deal that Trump swore during the campaign would not happen. Also, Zucker was instrumental in Trump’s success. As the president of NBC Universal, he put The Apprentice on air, giving the bloviating moron that now runs our country a national platform, setting the stage for his star to rise…”

Trump’s Attack on the Media as an ‘Enemy of the People’ Has Eerie Historical Echoes article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/ttrumps-attack-media-enemy-people-has-eerie-historical-echoes

“The FAKE NEWS media,” Trump wrote on Twitter, “is the enemy of the American People!”

An initial tweet put only The New York Times, CNN and NBC News on his enemies list. That message was quickly deleted, however, and replaced by an almost identical note that added two more domestic television networks: ABC and CBS.

The social media attack, the latest in a long series of Trump broadsides against the news media, came after the president had left Washington for a visit to a Boeing aircraft plant in South Carolina. The president later headed to Florida, where he is to spend the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago complex…”
