I actually think Trump plays the media and their penchant for focusing on the fringe as opposed to the primary. I mean here is the media reporting on his supposedly "hurt feelings" from an event that took place 3 days ago meanwhile he signed 3 significant executive orders today and barely a mention. Yet again he sets the narrative and message and the media is all too happy to take the bait.

I have to admit, it's a pretty big WIN! today for the Trumpster.

With the stroke of the pen, he ended the TPP!!

Also, he ended American financing of foreign abortions. I didn't knwo we did that, but it doesn't surprise me in the least.

Pretty epic Day 4.

If that is his strategy it's pretty good.
People crying about their feelings is always good media fodder.
There's almost nothing less important when leading a country (or leading anything) than showing your emotions.

He knows the lefties love the hurt feelings story. They have been lapping it ever since he won the election and he can play that card for the next 4 years with no fear of fatigue.

Are you serious? Do you think that's what people have been doing? This is pretty hilarious if you're actually serious.

And btw, what he has been doing, along with that hag, KellyAnne, is called gaslighting. And they are masters at it.

Google it, if you don't know what it means.

Yes. He has been playing media since he first announced himself as a candidate. He won the election primarily using social media. He tweets taking the power away from the media from redirecting his message forcing them into reaction mode which is exactly where he wants him. He is much a president of the Internet/social media age as Clinton was a TV president.

I think what is sad is the media really isn't interested in covering serious news from an objective standpoint or informing the people which is their job and that has been true for a long time. You talk about gas lighting and their headlines alone are inflammatory if not flat out lies. The thing with Trump is his rhetoric spins them into a tissy while he sits back with his pen signing executive order after executive order while they are talking feelings.

I am not surprised the larger meaning went right over your head. This isn't about truth vs lies, this is about control and messaging. The media will never control the message with Trump. They will report or should I say respond exactly how he commands them.

No, I think the meaning went right over your head.
You're endorsing authoritarian media tactics solely because "your guy" won.

You'd be searching for mints to cover the taste of bile in your mouth if a liberal president had done the same.

What? Obama was a master media player. He just didn't differently than Trump. To survive in our political landscape I would say it is vital to survival for any POTUS.

And please don't take my posts as some type of endorsement. I am just stating what may not be obvious to some on this thread. I worked in public relations for 12 years.

That some on this thread really believe Trump is all caught up in his feelings when he is playing the media and has been since he announced his candidacy.

Maybe they (we) are just playing the same game to get a rise out of Trumpsters.


Some took the bait, indeed.

It's a shame that what might well be a valid criticism of the free press drowns when you agree with the creation of Comical Sean as an anti-dote.

In another post you state that the press will be forced to "respond as he commands them" -- it isn't the job of a US president to command the press to respond in a certain fashion. That's banana state behavior.
