Just listen to those "cheers" as Donald Trump leaves that meeting where he yelled at the media for lying about him.

Uh, look I don't want to be unnecessarily contrarian here but what "cheers" do the folks at CBS think they are hearing?

And is this what happens to the media in America?

Donald Trump takes them behind the woodshed and gives them a paddling and all of  the sudden it is fluffy pro-Trump news from then on?

Why do I get the idea that I will soon have to move into somebody's attic and start writing my thoughts in a diary?

    I'm worried about you too - along with Seth Meyers, and everyone else. I listened to that scary Omarosa tell us that they are full of revenge, and I believe her. That big orange bastard is pissed at anyone who disses him. I'm afraid for all of us. I'm wearing my safety pin, and donating money to the ACLU - what else can we do ?

    1. Anonymous3:05 PM

      Someone beat me to it. Jillstein recount.

    2. I think it is more than possible that the networks will put pressure on Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert to either tone down the rhetoric or be replaced.

      I don't know who owns HBO so I think Bill Maher and John Oliver are safe.

      We already know what happened to Keith Olbermann. He's now relegated to Youtube and still on unstable ground.

      Samantha Bee, I'm not sure who owns her network but I suspect she might be in the shakiest ground of all. Hopefully that won't shut her up, only move her to a more open minded network the Nazis have less leverage against.

      I watch Olbermann and Samantha Bee on Youtube so with any filtering or censorship of the internet, I won't be able to see them any more.

    You, start writing your thoughts in a diary -- pretty much how I felt when I supported Bernie and thought Hillary would not win, while he would: head to head with Bernie.
    I'm back here, but still think Bernie is the best president American will never have.

    Now, I'm not alone in thinking this.

      I was never into Bernie and still feel the same way.

      Don't think he would have won had he been chosen to run for POTUS. And, I didn't think that all he wanted to do would ever have gotten through Congress. Could be wrong though!

    3. Bernie would have been better than Trump.

    Trump looks like such a second-rate mobster when he wears that long coat and hunches his way about town. That dress coat always emphasizes just how horrible a hunch he has.

    1. Anonymous3:48 AM

      This is so true - I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. Anyone notice that when trump arrived at Maralago there was a group cheering for him holding campaign signs. The signs were a dead giveaway to me that trump hired the group and gave them signs to make him look popular. Even at his rallies, his team handed out the campaign signs after people were inside. I'm sure he set that up after the "booing" send off after his meeting with the media. He always wants to control the narrative.

    Trump has already said he has no plans to go to the press, he is going to use twitter and his videos.

    So no one will be able to ask questions or challenge him. Those who do not have twitter or computers capable of viewing videos will be left in the dark.

    This is just another way of censoring the press and he will be able to get away with a lot of corrupt and illegal dealings.

    Green Party wants a recount?

    Why? They think they might pick up one or two more votes?

    They think it might help Hillary?
    Why didn't those geniuses think about that on the 1st of November or even before that?

    Everybody told them if Trump wins it will because of Stein and that dipshit who needs help tying his shoes and needs help putting on his helmet with the blinking red light.

    1. No, not because they think they'll pick up more votes.

      They'd rather have Hillary as President than Don the Con.

      I had half a dozen parties on my ballot to choose from. While the Democrats and Republicans may be the largest party, our Constitution allows people to be a member of any party they choose and vote for anyONE they choose.

      Oh, and Hillary didn't lose because of the third parties. Let's stick a fork in that dead horse.

    Just a thought, if something were to happen to Trump before January 20th like choking on a biscuit or expires by some other means, who gets inaugurated on January 20th?

    I would say not Pence. Pence would only become president if President Trump choked on a chicken bone after he was sworn in as president and passes away.

    Would Hillary become president because she had the most electoral votes after Trump?

    It is shy of two months before the inauguration. Who knows what could happen. Just pray nothing happens to President-elect Trump.

    Ask another government not to block the view of his golf course

    Tell another government who they should pick as their ambassador

    Increase patronage at his Washington DC hotel by soliciting foreign countries diplomats to stay there while doing business in America

    Settle his Trump University fraud cases

    Threaten the women who claimed Trump sexually harassed them.

    He's too busy texting back to back at 3am

    Busy fighting the press and demanding meetings so he can chew out their asses.

    Parade potential cabinet candidates in front of the press pool at his golf course for photo ops as if he's on Celebrity Apprentice.

    Washington Post:
    Trump turning away intelligence briefers since election win

    Trump turning away intelligence briefers since President-elect Donald Trump has received two classified intelligence briefings since his surprise election victory earlier this month, a frequency that is notably lower — at least so far — than that of his predecessors, current and former U.S. officials said.

    A team of intelligence analysts has been prepared to deliver daily briefings on global developments and security threats to Trump in the two weeks since he won. Vice President-elect Mike Pence, by contrast, has set aside time for intelligence briefings almost every day since the election, officials said.

    "The Cost for Protecting Jet-Setting President-Elect Trump? Yuge!"

    (If you want word for word, you have to read it online.)

    ● Thanksgiving feast in Florida, watched over by a contingent of at least 150 Secret Service personnel.

    ● Trump gets sworn in as president on Jan. 20, that contingent will balloon to more than 920 Secret Service agents and support personnel in Washington and his hometown of New York City.

    ● The price tag for all that security is "Yuge," (THEIR WORDS)

    ● Right now the cost to taxpayers is more than $2 million daily, the documents show, a number that is sure to increase whenever the President or First Lady travel — or when the threat level rises (BEING THAT IT'S TRUMP, THREAT LEVEL IS HIGH EVERYDAY).

    ● The New York Police Department security at Trump Tower estimated cost of $1 million per day.

    ● "You put a price tag on anything around the president, then you're putting a price tag on his life and that is priceless," (HOW DO YOU SPELL BULLSHIT?)

    ● When Trump heads home to the luxury 58-story high rise, the feds will need to find accommodations for staffers in a building where a modest one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment rents for $5,250-a-month


    "They would need at least a whole floor, and every apartment on that floor would need to be turned into an office,"
    ($5K × ???)

    ● "There's buses going by, there's trucks going by," she said. "When that detonates, that building is not going to withstand that blast."

    (Okay who said "OH WELL"? Not nice)

    ● For a taste of things to come, consider how Trump arrived at Mar-a-Lago, his 126-room, 110,000-square-foot mansion in exclusive Palm Beach for the Thanksgiving. It was in a 45-vehicle convoy that included limousines, vans — and an ambulance.

    (Fafafaforrrrtttyyyfafafivvveee vehicles to drive a bloated guy? :( Why can't he take Uber?)
