In order to defend his Muslim ban Donald Trump claims that media is not reporting terrorist attacks. Media responds with public spanking.

Courtesy of CBS News: 

The president began talking about how “radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland” as they did on 9/11, in the Boston bombings and in San Bernardino. He said it’s also happening “all over Europe” like in Paris and Nice. 

“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. In many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand that,” Mr. Trump said. 

There is no evidence that any media outlet is covering up terrorist attacks.

Later the White House walked back this claim a little by releasing a list of "terrorist attacks" that they claim were under reported.
(The list by the way completely excludes the Charleston shooting by a White Supremcist, and a number of other attacks by white folks as well. Coincidence?)

Problem is that most of the incidents listed WERE reported which inspired various news outlets to run footage of their reporters reporting on them.

Here is CNN doing exactly that.
Apparently this idea of the media not reporting on terrorist attacks in order to minimize them, was a talking point borrowed from Info Wars.

And if that was not bad enough there was also this tidbit of information.
Yeah, let's chalk this up to yet another failure by Donald Trump to dismiss facts and attempt to alter reality to fit his vision of what it SHOULD be.

    Trump terrorism is most certainly reported daily. He and his deplorable terrorist have been working constantly to destroy America.

    He gets even UGLIER with each photo of him published. What a truly repulsive person he is, both in looks and every other way.He should have stayed in his golden tower, and out of politics. Screwing up his and every associated business was his specialty. When one of his golden palaces is bombed, he will blame it on everyone but himself.

    $atan is getting us into a war with China and Iran. Just a matter of time, just a matter of time.

    USA Today:
    Iran and China respond to Trump with military drills

    China and Iran, two countries that top President Trump's enemies list, are pushing back against his tough talk this week with showy and provocative military drills...

    Iran on Saturday warned Washington against any hostile actions.

    "If the enemy makes a mistake our roaring missiles will hit their targets," Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Aerospace Force, said during massive air defense drills, the state-owned Fars News Agency reported.

    Iran also warned that if attacked, its missiles would target the U.S. 5th Fleet based in Bahrain, American installations in the Indian Ocean and the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.

    "These points are all within the range of Iran's missile systems, and they will be razed to the ground if the enemy makes a mistake," Mojtaba Zonour, a member of the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission. "And only seven minutes is needed for the Iranian missile to hit Tel Aviv.”...

      Trump better hide and/or have a LOT of security because I predict he is going to be a huge target if new wars do break out and assuredly if the USA is bombed (nuclear).

      He is leading the country down the path to destruction.

      And, the Republican party majority is in full support of his actions. Unbelievable. The voters who put this devil in office are going to rue their effort! May they all rot in Hell!

      I fear for our country under this lunatic!

    Today begins vigilant activity. People have got to be proactive in their kids educational lives. There's far too much judgment. Parents never deserve judgment. Child rearing is hard. Once kids turn 5 or so they are their own people with minds. My sister went off the deepend when she was 23 because she feels uncomfortable in a regimented environment. I am the opposite. The point is, Everyone is different. Communities, help your own kids. Ignore D.C. Right now. There are more good communities than bad. We all aren't Chicago which may be hopeless. For my Alaskan friends, wasilla has good schools with curriculums that teach kids how to be good people. Find them. Same for Tuscan here.

      It's not so much that public schools will become religious schools, it's more that public schools will die because voucher options will pull children and dollars out of the public school system.

      As bad as it is now, in many places public schooling will become an educational desert, bereft of funds for sufficient teaching or maintenance staff, thus failing to educated the children and falling into disrepair.

      Many parents laud the voucher system because they believe that it would assist them in affording pricey private institutions, but guess what, those institutions aren't interested in your kids or your money and will raise their prices just enough to keep it unaffordable, vouchers or no.
