The "Latte-Sipping Coastals" that make up the Plutocratic Establishment is in awe of the blunt and forceful challenges Trump is making when the MSM comes out with what is mostly either misleading or exaggerated negative reports that denigrate or slander him.
With False Claims, Trump Attacks Media on Turnout and Intelligence Rift
Here's a sample of the latest attack(s) by the MSM
WASHINGTON — President Trump used his first full day in office on Saturday to unleash a remarkably bitter attack on the news media, falsely accusing journalists of both inventing a rift between him and intelligence agencies and deliberately understating the size of his inauguration crowd.
In a visit to the Central Intelligence Agency intended to showcase his support for the intelligence community, Mr. Trump ignored his own repeated public statements criticizing the intelligence community, a group he compared to Nazis just over a week ago.
He also called journalists “among the most dishonest human beings on earth,” and he said that up to 1.5 million people had attended his inauguration, a claim that photographs disproved.
Later, at the White House, he dispatched Sean Spicer, the press secretary, to the briefing room in the West Wing, where Mr. Spicer scolded reporters and made a series of false statements.
It's also encouraging to read and hear news reports that counter those put out by the MSM;
The size of the crowds is being hotly disputed as a flashpoint between the Democratic Party and its supportive media, who want to delegitimize the new president, and the Trump administration, which wants the symbolism of a massive crowd on the Washington mall to defy the opposition's narrative.
“I have a running war with the media,” Trump said, adding how he really feels, “They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.”
As with all narrative battles, imagery is often deployed by political operatives in an attempt to bolster support or to undermine one's opponents.
A viral image put out by the New York Times, and subsequently adopted by much of the media, has been utilized by his opposition as a way of demonstrating that Trump's crowd was substantially smaller than former President Obama's in 2009.
A number of things should be noted about these images, just for a matter of context:
There are white tarps on the grounds of the Washington mall in the 2017 Trump Inauguration photo (right), while there none in the Obama photo (left).
The weather for the Obama Inaugural Address was in the 20s, while Trump's address had weather in the 40s and scattered rain showers.
The Trump Inaugural Address was given while the areas of the mall were blocked off by officials for stated security concerns, such as protesters.
Due to the cloudy skies seen in the photo, there will likely be no conclusive satellite data for the Trump Inaugural Address.
According to 2009 address analysis, drawing from satellite data evaluated by crowd size analysts, former President Obama drew a record 1.8 million to the Washington mall. It was a historic event in the sense that no African American had been elected president before; this alone would draw numerous loyal crowds.
