Donald Trump Campaign Disputes Claim That Photo of President As Rocky Balboa Was 'Doctored'

It looks as if President Trump is having some fun playing the MSM, with Newsweek getting especially bent out of shape and frustrated that their attacks are backfiring this holiday.

Hi MM. Saw  that report yesterday. Yes, just another embarrassing example on just how far the left will go to try to make our President and country look bad. And will they apologize and endeavor to print facts from now on? No, Trump bad, there is no story bad enough on Trump to print and then they make up worse.

Trump is obviously playing the MSM with more than a little success...    But then, they make it so easy..

The part that gets me is they apologized for getting  "caught"

As if they print some thing and don't get "caught", then that is okay

Some print obvious fake news and don't care if they do get caught

Say it often enough and it must be true

Journalist morality in reporting, has sunk to such a low bar it is impossible to go lower

On the other hand I can sort of understand it

24/7 news channels is impossible to report news that has ratings suffient to pay the bills

So they have to report what ever it takes to get enough ratings to pay the bills

But when ownership dictates what is reported, as in Bloomberg,  that is not a 24/7 news channel

I don't really know what to call that

However, recent commentary seems to indicate big time blow back on Bloomberg. His chances of being a  top tier candidate, are  zip to zero

Bloomberg is the only person that doesn't know his campaign is doomed

Trump will only get stronger the longer the Dems and the MSM play these games. The polls show Trumps strength getting stronger

You want to peak as the 2020 comes closer and Trump seems to be on the correct path way to victory

‘Rocky’ Trump in Hong Kong — what a weird world it is

Many American eyes rolled Wednesday after President Trump tweeted out a photo of his head on Rocky Balboa’s body. But the next day, Hong Kongers proudly brandished the image as they again rallied in protest of Beijing’s drive to remove their liberties.

metmike: Weird?  This is the new normal!

"This speech by far-left activist Greta Thunberg is absolute madness"


Greta: "You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I'm one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying.

Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money, and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!"

metmike: This is a manufactured crisis/emergency using scary words to get people to  react out of fear. Here are the actual facts from the real world:


Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds

"From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.

An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States."
