Only someone who wants to be a dictator would call the press "An Enemy of the People".

Maybe we need a menu for today!

”Today’s Special - Buffet”

liar steaks, word salad and trump kool aid

”Eat and Drink all that you want”

 

Blah blah blah...trump is trying to discredit and destroy the free press, and turn it into the trump state press...where we can only believe what he says as being the truth...

No Thanks!

It's something one would see in 1930s Germany or a banana Republic. 

 

Trump Cult members try to defend their idol in the White House, but that is also despicable.


1. Yes, what you do is the opposite of rocket science.

2. " President would repeatedly refer to the press as "An Enemy of the People"." is a lie because you put quotation marks around something he never said.  This is what he actually said:

And, note:

 

1. Putting quotation parks around something not said is "bearing false witness"  and an explicit sin in the Bible.

2. Trump said "the enemy" instead of "An enemy".

3. Trump said "the American People" instead of "the People."

4. Trump said "FAKE NEWS media" instead of "press."

5. The fact that the fake news media has conspired to perpetrate this lie proves his point.

So you are going from comparing a survey on the press to a survey on killing repubs? That is as wacky as it sounds and offers no fair association. 

And reporting on the results of trump supporter repubs polls is intended to offer a false narrative. The repubs are the minority...there are more people who oppose trump than support him. 

For trump, fake news, enemy of the people, blah blah blah... his intent is to undermine the free press which reports events and their take on what they see and what they hear... not to fabricate facts and opinions which do not exist. 

That is left to the fake news organizations which only say nice things about trump, whether factual or in most cases, not factual.

A majority of Republicans said they believed the news media is "the enemy of the people" rather than "an important part of democracy", in a poll released Tuesday.

 
The poll from Quinnipiac University showed 51% of GOP respondents identified with President Donald Trump's "enemy of the people" line 
 
Tuesday's poll showed 36% of GOP respondents called the news media "an important part of democracy," a much smaller share than any other group listed by Quinnipiac



That is a lie because the survey question was,

 

Which comes closer to your point of view: the news media is the enemy of the people, or the news media is an important part of democracy? 

 

When you are asked which is "closer" between non-opposites, the answer is nothing more than a word association test from which "identified," "believed" and "called" cannot be logically inferred.

 

For example, I might ask Democrats in a survey,

 

"Which comes closer to your point of view: Kill all Republicans, or Kill me"

 

and then report, "100% of Democrats believe that all Republicans should be killed." and other such nonsense.

The trump supporters in WV are brainwashed just like most of his supporters. I have mentioned before, and truly believe that these would be the same people that would have followed jim jones to Guyana for “kool aid fest”. 

Suffering from a “savior” complex. Unfortunately they perhaps discovered too late that their savior was a wack 

job...”We drank what”!

Why do people like trump want to drag everyone else down with them? 

 

trump has declared the free press as the enemy. Well then, the enemy of my enemy is my friend!


Of course they are brainwashed, they don't agree with you what other possible explanation could there possibly be?

 

For example, they probably think the President never declared the free press as the enemy. You can prove them to be brainwashed by merely posting a quote from the President making that claim.


Does this help?:

Republicans consider Fox their special Gospel Writer. Here's a short list of  the outrageous lies told on Fox from Politifact - Republicans are invited to produce a similar list from ABC, CBS, NBCM PBS, CNN or MSNBC from an equally reliable source.

All Pants on Fire! statements involving FOX

Most news media is biased in just that way. The idea here was to take the story away from the illegal alien who killed the girl and shift the blame to the Republican dairy farmer.
