Et tu, CNN?

CNN, others hyperventilate over President Trump’s perfectly fine fish-feeding

On his trip to Japan last week, President Trump took part in a customary ceremony of feeding the royal koi fish along with Japanese Prime Minister Abe. Together they spooned fish food into the pond, then Abe turned his box over to empty the remnants. Trump followed him, emptying his box.

So CNN edits the video to appear as though our boorish President overfed the koi.

This is so far beyond the pale I'm aghast. Sure, we expect them to slant the narrative. Maybe even embellish a bit. But this is whole-cloth invention. Outright propaganda.

CNN colluded with the Democrats and the Clinton campaign to help select both 2016 candidates. Now that their preferred candidate is the loser, they think their job is to fabricate stories that make the President look bad.

This morning they are branding themselves as;
"CBS....Real News".
One of them had to seize the meme.
Thanks for the post, bondibox

It's a pretty safe bet that you aren't. It's reminiscent of Fox's "Fair and balanced reporting" LOL.

A lot of wanderers in the U.S. political desert recognize that all the duopoly has to offer is a choice of mirages. Come, let us trudge towards empty expanse of sand #1, littered with the bleached bones of Deaniacs and Hope and Changers.

If they want to "make Trump look bad," a redundant exercise anyway, why don't they dig up some stuff on his time as a slum lord?

Oh, because we can't talk about class. Right.

The issue is patriotism. You've got to get back to your planet and stop the Commies. All it takes is a few good men.

@Cant Stop the Macedonian Signal There are so many things of substance they could "zing" him on, if they really wanted to help make him look bad. The problem is, as you call it, those issues are off limits. Wouldn't want to upset TPTB.

@Dr. John Carpenter
to release his tax returns kind of fell away, huh.
I still believe he was near bankruptcy when he was talked into running for POTUS by Big Dog.

@earthling1 All that blather about being worth $10B you'd think he'd want to prove that, wouldn't you? I remember one of my stupid relatives bragging about how rich Trump is and how he was going to pay for that idiotic Wall all by himself. I laughed out loud and asked him if he REALLY thought a man like Trump would pay for something himself? That's not how these people work, duh. When I told him that far more likely, the US will take out a big fat chunk of debt to pay for that Wall and the US taxpayer would be on the hook for it, silence.... We no longer speak, I cannot listen to the garbage spewed while this guy tells me he's not partisan and "listens to all sides" but continues to vomit up RWNJ talking points. There simply is no point in further discussion with that.

@Cant Stop the Macedonian Signal  
are Las Vegas casino magnates, a kind of spiritual slumlordism.

We’d have to point out that our oh-so-progressive Silicon Valley billionaires — like other pushers whose goal is to beget addicts — got their riches by exploiting vulnerabilities (“a little dopamine hit every once in a while”) in the human nervous system we all have.

that is 'half-way' watchable. And I do mean half-way.
Yes they are in the bag for the Awful Dems. So you have to watch it thru that filter.
But hey what else are you gonna watch, Faux News, News For Imbeciles? Haaha.

And Douchebag Donnie has been calling CNN "Fake News" since inauguration day, so of course they will piss on Trump's parade at every turn.

That said, the fish food dust up is indeed pure idiocy.

Herheinous had the media play to cover the candidates who she thought would be easier for her to beat. Cruz and Trump were on the list. I don't remember the other person.
I'm sure you not surprised to learn that it was hr'd.

This was in response to the media giving Trump $2 billion in free advertising. IIRC, didn't ToP keep republicans crap on the front page during the election? I remember people complaining about this, but it didn't do any good.

My response to the daily headlines is, what are they covering up this time?
Oh, and of course this fishy story was diaried there. Can you imagine the comments?
