Who is he talking about?

It certainly wasn’t MSNBC and NBC News. Chuck Todd noted that Trump appeared to be “insulting every living president” and that it wasn’t “intended to bring this country together.” Rachel Maddow said “it was militant and it was dark” and that it was also “hard to hear.” Chris Matthews said there was something “Hitlerian” about Trump’s use of ‘America First.’

Over on CNN, Jake Tapper called it “One of the most radical inaugural speeches we’ve ever heard.” The network also collected a number of takeaways from across the political spectrum, with a common theme being that it showed Trump will not change, that it showed flashes of authoritarianism and that it reflected Trump’s appeal to populism. Only conservative commentator Alice Stewart gave a full-throated commendation of the speech.

Looking at newspapers, major news sites and magazines, the consensus was that the speech was dark and angry. The Los Angeles Times review had this to say about the address: “The 16-minute inaugural address that President Trump delivered was Trumpism distilled to its raw essence: angry, blunt-spoken and deeply aggrieved.”

The New York Times highlighted how “Mr. Trump dispensed with appeals to unity or attempts to build bridges to his opponents.” Conservative pundit George Will was extremely blunt in his appraisal, labeling it “the most dreadful inaugural address in history.” TIME Magazine considered it a “grim assessment of the state of the nation.”

So, once again, one has to ask — who are all of these many media outlets that praised his speech?

    Now that Republicans the White house, the house, the senate and 33 states, they have no more excuses and can no longer blame Democrats for their failures…

      Well that is the first time I seen that horrible scene, it is awful.

      • StoneyCurtisll

        Sorry…
        didn’t mean to bring ya down…:)

        • Suzanne McFly

          Well I have to face the facts at some point. I just kept hoping America would come to our effin senses.

          • StoneyCurtisll

            Lets keep the hope alive…:)

            • Suzanne McFly

              I am keeping my head up, I am giving a lot of faces similar to Michele’s though.

              • StoneyCurtisll

                Right On~!

    • Larry Schmitt

      How can he defend the Constitution if he has no idea what’s in it?

      • Suzanne McFly

        He found out there words are in it and not pictures, he lost interest as soon as he heard that. If you told him it was a pop-up book full of boobies, he would run in to see it.

        • Larry Schmitt

          Scratch n sniff.

        • StoneyCurtisll

          not a coloring book?…:)

          • Suzanne McFly

            He only likes white boobies, so he would only use one….maybe 2 crayons. lol

      • StoneyCurtisll

        Exactly..

    WSJ, Fox news, the blaze

    I think I will stop there….

  • Jack E Raynbeau

    The best part was watching the Clintons and the Bushes laughing at him.

  • Larry Schmitt

    Fox has a story about Obama’s flight to Palm Springs being diverted by weather. The comments are as full of hate as ever. It’s enough to make one physically ill.

  • William

    Typical. The orange molester not in the least bit interested in the job. Simply interesting in reviews and publicity. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0d4b70f39dc0ea1496de08a71a08c0da04ce5ceda3a194e1f4c8d2b52b497111.jpg

      Love the look on Mrs. Obama’s face.

      • StoneyCurtisll

        High five to the look of scorn~!

        • Larry Schmitt

          She looks like she just found a piece of rotten meat that fell behind the fridge.

          • StoneyCurtisll

            She did…
            And it’s name is Donald Trump~!

          • Jeanne173

            naw, that piece of rotten meat just had his hand on a bible.

        • Jeanne173

          I pity the poor fool that brings her daughter home ten minutes after curfew.

  • StoneyCurtisll

    To the Donald Trump administration the new “media” is Breitbart, Newsmax and sites like NewsBusters and even StormFront..
    This is the ‘media’ he is thanking for his so called success…
    All other traditional media, has been branded as “fake news” or “liberal news” to his followers
    And are no longer to be trusted… (Welcome to Trump world)…
    We are no longer living in our parents or our grandparents country..

    • Larry Schmitt

      They are this century’s equivalent of Yellow Journalism.

  • labman57

    When reality conflicts with Trump’s self-boasting hyperbole, Donnie will simply deny reality.

    • StoneyCurtisll

      Indeed…
      Thats his mode of operation…

    The harsh reality is that the MSM gave Trump countless hours of free ad time from the moment he announced his candidacy. They handed him the presidency on a silver platter.

    • Willys41

      Fox News did nothing but coverup all the man’s failings.

      • Jungle_Bhoy

        They all did – Fox was the worst but MSNBC – supposedly a pro-American station was just as bad – that Morning Joe guy is a slimy little lickspittle.

    • robert

      At least we know the popular vote doesn’t mean sh*t anymore so we got that going for us Which is nice

  • fahvel

    all the above is obviously negative but it still has a bizarre kind of intellectual softness – something your pres does not, in any sense, deserve. He should be pilloried with non stop vicious word assaults until all he sees is the top of the urn he is in.

  • jwong318

    The media that he thanks was FoxNews. FoxNews was the most dishonest media on the Planet Earth! Alan, why are you still with FoxNews? Move to other Network, will you?
