Cry Baby

Some more of the same


This just in: President elect Donald Trump is beginning to  take his prospective term of office seriously.

Not so fast:

Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.

“It was like a f−−−ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.

“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing-down,” the source added.

A second source confirmed the fireworks.

Whoa! “I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed.” It would appear some people have no sense of irony:

This, from an  opinion piece that ran in The New York Times, goes on to list 19 additional  prevarications, and from all appearances these were within the confines of a single presidential debate.d

The Washington Post has been additionally diligent. Here is their list:

  • Comments connecting Mexican immigrants and crime
  • He never said ‘some of the things’ claimed by Megyn Kelly
  • President Obama spent $4 million to conceal school and passport records
  • The ‘real’ unemployment rate is 42 percent
  • His claim that his tax plan is going to cost him a fortune
  • President Obama is accepting 200,000 Syrian refugees
  • The Bush White House tried to ‘silence’ his Iraq War opposition in 2003
  • ‘Thousands’ of New Jersey Muslims celebrated the 9/11 attacks
  • He ‘predicted Osama bin Laden’
  • The unemployment rate is 23 percent
  • His border wall would cost $8 billion
  • He would save $300 billion a year on prescription drugs
  • He built his empire with a ‘small loan’ from his father
  • John Kasich ‘helped’ Lehman Brothers ‘destroy the world economy’
  • Time magazine as the source for his ‘facts’
  • He can eliminate $19 trillion in debt in eight years
  • There have been no negative ads against Kasich
  • The Islamic State is ‘making a fortune’ on Libyan oil
  • No foreign leader greeting Obama was ‘without precedent’
  • ‘Scores of recent migrants’ in the U.S. are charged with terrorism
  • Putin called Donald Trump ‘a genius’
  • The National Enquirer story on Ted Cruz’s father was not denied
  • Hillary Clinton started the birther movement
  • ‘There’s nothing to learn’ from his tax returns
  • Crime is ‘through the roof’ because of illegal immigration
  • There’s something ‘fishy’ about Vince Foster’s suicide
  • Trump University judge was out of line
  • The Obama administration actively ‘supported’ terror groups
  • Saddam Hussein was ‘so good’ at ‘killing terrorists’

  • His revisionist history of mocking a disabled reporter
  • Clinton ‘started the talks’ to give $400 million to Iran
  • Clinton raised $60 million in July from just 20 people
  • Clinton only recently pledged to renegotiate NAFTA
  • Clinton’s emails led to an Iranian defector’s death
  • Clinton lacks the ‘physical stamina’ to be president
  • Undocumented immigrants collect Social Security benefits
  • 58 percent of black youths are unemployed
  • ‘Pay-for-play’ regarding Clinton and Ericsson
  • Trump’s ridiculous claim that veterans are ‘treated worse’ than undocumented immigrants
  • 92 million Americans represent a ‘nation of jobless Americans’
  • ‘We’re not allowed to profile’ potential terrorists
  • President Obama is trying to ‘delay’ Obamacare enrollment until after the election
  • Stop and frisk in NYC wasn’t ruled unconstitutional
  • A racial discrimination suit was ‘brought against many real estate firms’
  • He won ‘every poll’ on the second presidential debate
  • Clinton ‘lost’ $6 billion at the State Department
  • Clinton-backed Haiti factory ‘amounted to a massive sweatshop’
  • His version of the latest Hillary Clinton email controversy
  • Clinton “gave” or “handed over” 20 percent of U.S. uranium to the Russians.
  • Clinton email controversy is ‘bigger than Watergate’
  • The murder rate is the ‘highest it’s been in 45 years

And there is my favorite, which neither of the foregoing saw fit to mention:


Donald Trump’s tirade against CNN and Jeff Zucker conjures up irony on an industrial scale.

The Trump administration is still forming and will not  become real until January. I will continue to have a few laughs in the meantime, but come inauguration day the fun will really get started. Keep reading.
