The actual title is Trump condemns the leaks, the left, and the media, (but that would be redundant). Times they are a-changing, and the lies of the left are being exposed at an almost 1 for 1 rate. The idiocracy is over, but like cancer it is fighting for every cell.

Just out of curiosity, but what is the over/under, in months, as to how long it will take him to start another war to try to get the public on his side? A little flag waving, and sabre rattling can go a long way in bolstering up a regime.

Agent Orange should have condemned the stream of leaks the Russians used to interfere with our elections.
Wait. He requested and praised them.

The single most important thing he said is that the public doesn't trust or believe the media otherwise he would not be president. The vitriol and hatred of the left media is pathological and it is only reinforcing Trumps supporters. Keep it up and the Dems will never see power again.

Yeah, Nixon hated the media, too, but it was instrumental in saving our democracy from a lying criminal. Interesting how history tends to repeat itself.

libertas2u, you are wrong. The most important thing he said was how he had gotten the most EC votes since back when. That was when the so-called POTUS lied again and was called on it by a reporter that corrected the numbers, then he claimed someone else had furnished him the numbers, thinking then they couldn't blame him for lying. Maybe you should either pay closer attention to all that is going on, or maybe you prefer to be lied to, on a regular basis. If the latter is the case, your father isn't very proud of you at this time.

Oh but another consideration and opinion on the father of Ivanka & his tirades [ some might ask which one!] .... Comrades lend me your brains for a lucid moment , is it the thought of the leeks or is it the though of the Bear , or as the Great Ronald Reagan called it the evil Empire [ orange man has already hoodwinked the right to disrespect the might W, why not move on the the Great RR?]

Your majesty says very true: if your majesties is
remembered of it, the Welshmen did good service in a
garden where leeks did grow, wearing leeks in their
Monmouth caps; which, your majesty know, to this
hour is an honourable badge of the service; and I do
believe your majesty takes no scorn to wear the leek


I wear it for a memorable honour;
For I am Welsh, you know, good countryman.

So KC SAP, your love for the POTUS has clouded your mind, and while he may call the USA, the land of our fore fathers and which many have died to defend and which we built our great country on taking land from those interlopers from Asia and on the back of those who volunteered to come to America to live a life better than Africa , calling our country "Not So Innocent" [would wonder why his supporters do not get upset about this statement unless they agree- shame , eternal shame ], and stomp all over all our venerated rituals, I will not stand for either your or "it"'s attack on leeks, as you know I too have welch blood in me you countryman..... actually traced back my genealogy, and I certainly feel that I too belong to royalty.

Yet in your defense I do share your loyalty in that there certainly is no comparison between leeks that are good for you and the country and the Idea of Russia getting involved in the USA political process- it would take an idiot or a repugnant not to see the real threat.

mrcharles, you risk the Orangeman's ire when you wax poetic of taking a leek, particularly those of golden hue. He is personally much concerned with such matters.

What I think is hilarious is that he is upset about the leaks, but then calls them fake news. If they aren't true, they aren't leaks. If they are leaks, then they are not fake news. Somebody called him on this at the news conference and he changed the subject. Also, shouldn't people tell the press if the government is doing something nefarious such as conspiring with the Russians?
