Is CNN trying to destroy Trump?


Is CNN trying to destroy Trump?

[url][sign in to see URL]

[CNN has become the Anti-Trump news network. No news network took Trumps constant insults about the press more seriously or personal then CNN and morning anchor Chris Como cannot hide his hatred of Trump. It's almost like they all had a meeting and decided to bring Trump and his administration down. Their ratings are up and no end of their anti-Trump campaign seems in sight. Is this the case do you think? If so.... is it ethically right? We complain about the bias of Fox News but is this the same thing? What do you think?]

Re: Is CNN trying to destroy Trump?


The problem of a news media or anyone openly "hating" or ridiculing Trump, is that nothing good can come of it.
Trump already won, and with Pence as VP, he is not going away any time soon.
So then the ONLY way to achieve anything is to get Trump to decide it is in his interests to do that.
But there is no way Trump could possibly be effected by those who express open hatred or ridicule.

It may be good for ratings, but a bad idea for the country.

Is Trump trying to destroy his own administration ?
Anyone who reports on both Trump actions AND words objectively, will be held to blamed.

Yeah, Katie.
What he said is a lot like "shut up, bend over, and take it like a man " ?

That needed to clear my outrage at the silliness ... in a more politically correct way of putting it, the conservatives don't seem to like it much if anyone else puts America first.

{ I deleted your last line Geezees. Please no more insults like that!]

oh please, they are trying to distract Trump as much as possible from accomplishing his agenda (Wealthcare for himself)

Trump has everything coming his way and more.
Lot of people are in denial and should try to stop Trump from hurting our environment, our middle-class, and the chronically ill.

Get used to it.

The point is more like "You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar".

Maybe Trump is totally intractable, in which case it may not matter.
But since he was already wealthy, and just by winning the election he is guaranteed increased wealth from the notoriety if nothing else. then it seems likely his ego may be more important than money at this point.
In which case flattery may be the most successful means of manipulating him.

seriously? you want to turn the other cheek and let him continue his quest to ferment the WH? something are worth fighting for.

 he's hurting our countries traditions and habits that have guided presidents in the past and have kept democracy healthy. He's going down the path that Turkey and Hungary went. Just because Trump can legally do something does not mean he should.

Trump needs to respect our nation's political culture. Something Trump has not being playing nice with.

He does not represent who we are as a country and he is one person among us, president or not, he is no more important than any of us, especially as a group, he is our employee, unfortunate that he is an employee we can't say, "you're fired."

The time to fight was WAY before Trump got elected.
The forced regime changes in the Mideast murder millions.
After not just ignoring, but aiding that, no one really has the credibility to attack Trump. Certainly not any Hillary supporter.
So far, Trump is still a vast improvement over our invasions as usual.

The only people we are currently invading or massacring are the Afghans, and there is at least some chance we may get out of there now, as well. Peace in Palestine may now also be possible. We could even end our ridiculous tension with Russia.

That is not the point.
The point is that just calling him names is not going to alter his actions for the better, and is not going to stop anything.

By the way Rigby, why do you have a problem with "name calling" isn't this the age of politically incorrect and hasn't Trump been the leader of name calling and don't you reap what you sow? He has set an example we are following, after all he is the president that is making America great again. emoticon

Being politically incorrect means being truthful in order to break stereotypes, not to deliberately inflame for no reason.

What Trump has done is irrelevant. We know why he did it, to get votes. Voting is over now. There is no point in continuing that tactic by him or against him. It is impractical. Now one wants compromise instead.

People continuing to be obstructionist, without compromise, as they did to Obama, are selfish jerks, willing to sacrifice the country, for their own personal gain in the future.

I think CNN is doing what it always does. Jumping on controversy. And Trump is giving them plenty of that to zone in on.

I doubt that they are out to destroy him but simply doing what they normally do.

What you say came to mind at once. I agree - Trump was engulfed by the real rulers of the US to do their bidding.

The only president of the US who resisted the MIC was Carter and he was systematically blatted by them. Not re-elected.

I don't think lying is unimportant, I don't think his behavior is unimportant but you can also add I detest his platform on immigration, Muslims, education, economics, health care and so on. Will that work for you?

When have we NOT been selling the latest and best arms we have, to the Saudis?
It is how we can afford their oil, and is how we get the Saudis to bankrupt the Russians.
Has any president ever halted any arms deal the Saudis wanted?
