The Trumpian #threat to #freedom of the #press

source: http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/the-administration/346492-the-trumpian-threat-to-freedom-of-the-press
If #Trump can, at the end of the day, persuade enough people that what they read in their newspapers, or watch on television or their iPhones, or listen to on radio is all “fake news,” all lies propagated by his critics and enemies, then he can govern, more or less, as he wishes, without any institutional red lights flashing in his eyes — without a judiciary raising legal questions, without a legislature debating the wisdom of his policies, without a #media coming up with embarrassing scoops.

#Trump finally condemns #Charlottesville #racism, days after #violence

source: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/aug/14/donald-trump-charlottesville-response-washington
“Racism is evil,” the US president said at the #WhiteHouse. “And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the #KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”

The explicit remarks came after a storm of criticism – some from prominent figures in his own party – over Trump’s decision not to criticise head-on the white supremacist groups that targeted Charlottesville, Virginia, at the weekend.

One of the bots, named BabyQ, made by the Beijing-based company Turing Robot, was asked, “Do you love the Communist Party?” To which it replied simply, “No.” Another #bot named XiaoBing, which is developed by Microsoft, told users, “My China dream is to go to #America.” When the bot was then quizzed on its patriotism, it dodged the question and replied, “I’m having my period, wanna take a rest.”

Would North Korea Really Nuke America?

No one asks the important #question to the #Trump #CNN #Tweet - I do it!

Here is the tweet: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/881503147168071680

The #video was created in the absolute dirtiest corner of the #Internet. Why does #Donald have time to surf there?
We know most of his time he watches #Fox #news:

Can anyone tell me, when the #president does his #job?

Did they really isolate this puppet with #TV and Internet so far that "THEY" can work and decide everything without him?
