Trump Renders Main Stream Media Irrelevant With 140 Characters


The left wing main stream media was quick to criticize President-elect Donald Trump for creating nuclear policy in 140 Tweeted characters. 

The Trump style is a striking difference from President Obama’s disingenuous and cowardly approach of ordering his Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, to abstain on a vote clearing the way for the UN to condemn Israeli on its settlements in occupied territories.

A veto by the US – or any of the five permanent members of the UN Council – would have killed it.

Had Hillary Clinton won the presidency, this move would not have only been highly unlikely, but politically incorrect for the Democratic Party. Does it really look like Obama is making for a smooth presidential transition for Trump?

Trump pressured Obama before the UN vote to veto the resolution.
“As the United States has long maintained, peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations,” the president-elect said in a statement Thursday.
“This puts Israel in a very poor negotiating position and is extremely unfair to all Israelis,” Trump said.
Power explained the move in a statement to the council, condemning Netanyahu for continuing settlement expansion while paying lip service to the idea of a two-state solution.
“One cannot simultaneously champion expanding Israeli settlements and champion a viable two-state solution that would end the conflict,” she said. “one has to make a choice between settlements and separation.”
As for the left wing main stream media, they feel that Trump’s Tweets are leaving them without a job and it’s not fair that the guy who’s getting everybody else a job is bypassing the press and going directly to the people with his message and doing it with 140 characters.
Well that’s not going to happen.  Max Fisher of the New York Times took it upon himself to ‘translate and explain’ Trump’s words, “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”  
You see those words were not simple and clear enough for Max, he wanted to and went on to tell what it, “Could be read as . . .  and “Why it matters.”
It wasn’t enough for him to believe that Trump believes, “You lead from strength,” and it may not take any more words to make it more complex.
Nevertheless Max went on to tell it from the perspective of every Country that has and wants a Nuke.
I’m glad he has a job, it’s one less the Donald has to get.

    Tweet , 140 words , concise and keeping those who would find reading Charles Krauthammer, George Will and Paul Krugmann laborious and too substantive.
    Let alone the New Yorker or the Atlantic. It is not so much keeping great journalism at bay as keeping his voters rallied. Journalists, real and true ones keep us a free and open society.
    I look forward to a Christmas in America memory especially in this time of political correctness where few shops or public area’s including schools no longer allow carols and trees and nativities. They have become a thing of the past. Take us down Memory Lane again where the sled, the carols and the joy of family meant something.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.
