Media: Why is mentally deranged, Putin-loving Trump mad at us?

CNN report on Trump's mental stabilityThe liberal media appeared to be aghast last week by President Trump’s post-impeachment “victory lap" because their plan to chase him out of office failed miserably, says a media watchdog.

The same left-wing media outlets that accused President Donald Trump of being a mentally deranged stooge of Vladamir Putin voiced outrage when the president recognized his allies on Capitol Hill and called out his enemies, including Democratic leaders and their media allies.  

"We've been going through this now for over three years," Trump said in the packed East Room. "It was evil. It was corrupt. It was dirty cops. It was leakers and liars. And this should never, ever happen to another president, ever."

Trump worked his way down a list to recognize and thank lawmakers such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who defended him in recent days and weeks. He also worked his way down a list of people who have sought to destroy him: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Adam Schiff, fired FBI director James Comey, and Sen. Mitt Romney, who cast a Senate vote against him. 

CNN 'collusion' screen grab

The media descriptions of Trump ranged from “unapologetic” and “presidential payback” to “vindictive” and “angry.”

Leading the way was MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who seemed to reach deep into his thesaurus to find enough adjectives to express his contempt.

“President Trump spoke today with the venom of a black mamba,” Matthews complained. “The viperous words he spewed in the White House East Room on a day he'd begun at a prayer breakfast.”

Trump, in fact, has been criticized for his speech at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, where he criticized Democrats who sought his downfall. But those comments seemed mild compared to the meandering, sometimes-profane, and seemingly unpredictable speech that came hours later. 

President Trump with "acquittal" paperScott Whitlock of the Media Research Center says the media is not angry at Trump’s rebuke as much as the fact that Trump survived the all-out assault to destroy him.

“Obviously [Trump] wasn't convicted and his poll numbers have gone up,” Whitlock comments. “So their only reaction in the media is to get more and more infuriated about him.”

With voters electing a president in just nine months, Whitlock predicts the liberal media will become even more “over the top” as Election Day approaches.

“It’s going to get more and more stark with the media effectively picking a side with whoever the Democratic nominee is,” he says, “and you're just going to see more division and more vitriol.”
