It’s been a long time since I’ve had this much fun watching the news. Every scheme the Wile E. Coyote Democrats devise blows up in their faces. They call up Acme, put in their order for Acme
Trump Attacks, lay out the tripwire, and boom. The blowback is
fierce — on the Democrat attackers, and their Wile E. Media
Every. Single. Time. I loved seeing Donald Trump say to CNN’s
Jim Acosta, “No, you’re not getting a question. You’re fake news.” I
love it because it’s true. Acosta pulled the pin on the grenade, and it
went off in his lap. Everyone involved in the stupid Russian “golden
shower” dossier — particularly CNN — ended up with Acme egg on
On January 15, a bunch of “health care advocates” descended on
the Trump Tower restaurant in New York to protest the coming
repeal of Obamacare. Waving “Trumpcare Makes Us Sick” signs,
according to The New York Daily News, these Democrat activists
started coughing and retching all over the restaurant. Yes, they actually staged a “cough-in” — to try to stop Donald Trump from pulling
the plug on Obamacare. All they did was gross New Yorkers out —
and make them ask what “Trumpcare” is, and where they can get it.
Trump is the left’s nemesis, and their obsession to bring him
down is making them delusional, but they are not going to stop. And
the more their Acme sabotages don’t work, the more they’ll double
down. The Wile E. Drive-Bys have no idea why the anvils keep
landing on their own heads. They’re trying to destroy Roadrunner
Trump and his team in the age-old ways they’ve always succeeded,
but it’s all backfiring.
Last August, in “Trump Is Testing the Norms of Objectivity in
Journalism,” The New York Times’ Jim Rutenberg urged the media
to throw out “journalistic norms” — and basically use any rhetorical
means necessary to stop Trump. Even if you have to make it up. This
Acme gambit obviously didn’t work. So now Wile E. Rutenberg has
a follow-up: “As Trump Berates News Media, a New Strategy Is
Needed to Cover Him.”
Rutenberg called Trump a “master media manipulator.” Why?
Because the left can’t figure out how to destroy him. In their world,
taking out a Republican is simple, because Republicans traditionally
cower and cave. If you accuse them of something, they’ll fade into
the background, or resign. But the tried-and-true techniques don’t
work on Trump. It can’t be that they’re inept. No, they’re the smart
ones! So of course Trump must be a manipulator.
What’s Trump manipulating? The minds of news consumers!
Trump is engaging in chicanery! Trickery! Trump is somehow making people not believe what the media says about him. The audacity!
Trump fights back, and in their world, Trump convincing people to
disbelieve the media is against the rules.
But they have no Plan B, except to order the next Acme sabotage.
Cue the Roadrunner: “Beep-beep.” And ka-boom!
