Never has our country had a leader so violently opposed by the media. Yet, their lies don’t faze the president. Instead, the #FakeNews fuels Trump’s fire.
One would think the media would try to get in on Trump’s good side. Especially considering the buying power conservatives hold and use.
Leftists spend their time calling for boycotts and planning protests, but they make little progress. However, it’s quite different for conservatives. Recall when Macy’s slammed Trump while proclaiming to “stand with her” shortly after the election? Or when conservatives boycotted Starbucks? Or that entire NFL debacle?
Such moves prove conservatives vote with their wallets. And considering Trump is fattening those wallets with his economic gains, conservatives will continue to vote Trump with their purchasing power.
Of course, that extrapolates to the media as well. CNN’s ratings are lower than ever. No longer the most trusted name in news, the network is in panic mode. They even tried putting a conservative in the lineup as their desperation swells. Still, they refuse to change tactics. CNN still believes attacking Trump will pay off down the line. It’s a delusional idea, but these are the times we live in.
In fact, if you want to know who Trump’s real opponent is in 2020, it’s simple. It’s not Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris or Corey Booker. His real competition is the fake news.
Trump vs. Media
Sadly, there is still a population of liberals who actually drink the Kool-aid. CNN calls Trump racist, they believe it. Rachel Maddow says he’s evading taxes, they buy it. He’s even been accused of sexual assault in a department store and the frazzled feminists believed every word, even after we learned it was a story stolen from an episode of Law & Order.
But Trump knows how to get his message across. He doesn’t wait for the media to publish a balanced, fair assessment of any situation. Instead, Trump goes straight to the people.
As Fox News explains:
The president issued a series of tweets early Monday after a Washington Post report said that he “leveled racist attacks” against the four freshman congresswomen of color—Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley—who make up “the Squad.”
“The Amazon Washington Post did a story that I brought racist attacks against the “Squad.” No, they brought racist attacks against our Nation. All I do is call them out for the horrible things they have said. The Democrats have become the Party of the Squad!” Trump tweeted.

The report, published late Sunday, outlined several controversies for the administration this summer—including the feud with the four congresswomen.
Trump, in June, suggested that the lawmakers, who have been outspoken in their criticisms against him and his administration, should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places where they came from.”
“Then come back and show us how it is done,” Trump said in June.
At rallies, following his comments, Trump supporters broke into chants of “send her back,” which Trump later distanced himself from. The chants had been directed at Omar, D-Minn., who was born in Somalia, came to the U.S. as a refugee when she was a teen and is now a naturalized U.S. citizen.
“Those are incredible patriots,” Trump told reporters, after supporters in North Carolina chanted. “But I’m unhappy when a congresswoman goes and says, ‘I’m going to be the president’s nightmare.’ She’s going to be the president’s nightmare? She’s lucky to be where she is, let me tell you. And the things she has said are a disgrace to our country.”
The massive turnout at these rallies has leftists worried. Obama can barely fill three rows these days. Meanwhile, people stand outside Trump rallies just hoping for a glimpse of the excitement inside.
That’s because conservatives know who the real racists are.
Trump and the Real Racism
Logic should tell liberals where racism really emerges from. It doesn’t come from the president. It comes from the left. In fact, Trump does more to improve race relations than Obama ever did. But the media refuses to acknowledge any contribution Trump makes.
The president has also accused the congresswomen of being “a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced and not very smart.”
Meanwhile, Trump blasted “Fake News,” and called the media his “primary opponent.”
“The LameStream Media has gone totally CRAZY! They write whatever they want, seldom have sources (even though they say they do), never do ‘fact-checking’ anymore, and are only looking for the ‘kill.’ They take good news and make it bad,” he continued.
“They are now beyond Fake, they are Corrupt. The good news is that we are winning. Our real opponent is not the Democrats, or the dwindling number of Republicans that lost their way and got left behind, our primary opponent is the Fake News Media. In the history of our Country, they have never been so bad!”
The fake news seems determined to sway the outcome of 2020. But they may wanna call Hillary and ask her how that turned out the last time.
