President Donald Trump held a press conference on Thursday that he announced one hour before it was scheduled to begin. You could tell how high the tensions were in that room even through the television set. The press handled Obama with sycophantic adoration, even after it was revealed that the Obama administration spied on FOX News reporter James Rosen, his parents, and at least 20 AP reporters. When it comes to Trump, however, the antagonism is apparent and the seething disdain and hatred shines brightly from the Democrat allies in the media who are still angry that all their work didn’t help get Hillary elected.
One thing you can say about Donald Trump is that he doesn’t hold anything back, and he certainly let his thoughts be known without holding anything back. Trump tells it like it is and that manner about him is one of the reasons so many got behind him. This telling it like it is was put on full display when a reporter asked if he was going to include the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in his conversations about his urban agenda and inner city agenda.”
Trump responded that he would love to meet with them and shared that he actually had a meeting scheduled with Rep. Elijah Cummings. However, despite the fact that Cummings was initially excited about the meeting, ultimately Cummings and his staff began ignoring numerous phone calls from Trump’s office to finalize it.
The “telling it like it is Trump” then shocked the already angry media with this statement.
“He (Cummings) probably was told by (Senator Chuck) Schumer, or somebody like that, some other lightweight. He was probably told ‘don’t meet with Trump. It’s bad politics.’ And that’s part of the problem in this country.”
Check out the reporter’s face when President Trump infers that Schumer is a lightweight. Priceless.
