Fake News Media Calls Real News a “Disservice to the country”
Fake polls have tried to convince us that America despises President Trump. But now that a new poll by Rasmussen shows president Trump has the same approval rating as Obama did at the end of his first year, the left scrambles to cover it up.
Don’t worry, Trump News Network got the truth out.
While the Fake News loves to talk about my so-called low approval rating, @foxandfriends just showed that my rating on Dec. 28, 2017, was approximately the same as President Obama on Dec. 28, 2009, which was 47%…and this despite massive negative Trump coverage & Russia hoax!

But apparently the facts upset Leftist and fake news CNN anchor Brain Stelter who fired back:
This is a prime example of how “Fox & Friends” does a disservice to viewers: https://t.co/ErJBOTAHbo

Stelter provided more clarity on his tweet:
Fox did a disservice to its viewers by misleading them about the president’s popularity. Fox’s own poll data has shown that the president’s approval rating lags far behind all other presidents in modern history. But the Fox host, perhaps just ripping off a talking point from Matt Drudge’s Twitter feed, brought up the Rasmussen poll instead of Fox’s own data.
A poll is a poll. So what’s the disservice here?
The Left loathe seeing President Trump gain in popularity. And now that his numbers challenge Obama’s, they fear the real truth: Trump is more popular than Obama.
The president tweeted the facts:
On Dec. 28, 2009, according to a Rasmussen poll, Obama had a 47 percent approval rating. On Dec. 28, 2017, Trump had a 46 percent approval rating. Obama’s approval rating on December 29, 2009 —
just one day later — was 46 percent, the exact same as Trump’s.
Stelter represents the typical Leftist, living in the past. He’s been conditioned to love Obama and hate Trump. He doesn’t see reality through a prism of logic and reason. And this is why CNN suffers mightily.
The group-think at CNN won’t allow dissenters to the fake news narrative. This attitudes flows from the top, Jeff Zucker, to the lowest member of the CNN food chain.
In November, Stelter hosted Kellyanne Conway to discuss a poll put out out by the left leaning Washington Post/ABC News. The poll showed 65 percent of Americans believe Trump has done little a year after his election in which Brain called a “credibility crisis.”
“Given President Trump’s historically low approval ratings, what specific steps are you and your colleagues taking to try to repair Trump’s credibility?” Stelter asked.
“The numbers that matter to America is the 1.5 million jobs created on his watch, the 54 record highs in the stock market closes, the consumer confidence level at a 17-year higher, higher than both George W. Bush and President Obama,” Conway said.
Stelter said that Trump doing good things for the economy is like a doctor telling a patient that he has cancer, but at least he can still walk.
“It’s like a doctor walks in and says you have cancer and it’s spreading throughout your body, but the good news is your legs and feet still work,” Stelter said “It’s great that I can walk but I want to treat the cancer, Kellyanne, and that’s why I’m asking about his historical low approval ratings.”
It’s quite comical watching leftists squirm trying to spin Trumps amazing success as “cancer” for Americans. But isn’t cancer for Americans the fake news CNN presents daily?
One such CNN story centered around their obsession with Russia/Trump collusion:
Reporter Manu Raju reported that congressional investigators had been provided an email suggesting that Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and other Trump associates had been offered a preview of emails that had been hacked by Democrats, possibly by Russian operatives. The email, which CNN reported was dated Sept. 4, 2016, also included a decryption key to access the documents.
Raju said that “multiple sources” had provided the information about the email.
But after several hours of breathless coverage of the story, CNN’s reporting fell apart. The email, was actually dated Sept. 14, 2016, a day after the documents cited in the email had been published online.
And how did Brain Stelter respond to such fake reporting? By inviting a panel of CNN reporters onto his show suggesting that it’s precisely why the public should “trust the media because they make mistakes.”
2018 will be the year fake news returns to reality. And America will thank Donald Trump for setting the wheels in motion.
