    t must be payback time for Trump's criticizing Hilary and the left for not saying Radical Islamists Terrorists. Trump's condemning hate groups in the Charlottesvile mess apparently is not enough. He must use their words and be more specific. Trump will never be able to do or say any thing that will meet their approval since the vendetta will continue.

    No, I don't think President Trump is being treated fairly by the press. I don't think he is being treated fairly by alot of people including even some who are working for him. I don't think it matters what he does, those same people and the Press are going to find something wrong with it as they did not want him elected President and they will continue to do all they can to let him and us know this.

    No, I don't think he's being treated fairly but he certainly doesn't help his cause with all his childish tweets.

    I'd rather see him continue to be his "real" self, childish outbursts and all...then see him become a "puppet" like the others.

    Why can't he do both? Being a puppet has nothing to do with wether someone tweets or not.

    No. Because he doesn't suck up to them. Since the advent of TV, the media have had politicians under their control. If they want to be elected, they have to kiss the medias ass. They can make you or break you. Trump doesn't do that. So they are determined to bring him down to size.

    I believe that if Nixon had sucked up to the media, Watergate would have been quietly swept under the rug. Nobody would have ever heard the word. Instead, he riled them. And they got even with him.

    He could do both if he wanted and I do find he has toned down a lot since he was running for President. I don't mind his "spice"...and I would rather know what someone is really thinking than not.

    I just think it distracts from his job as President and gives the media and his distracters ammunition.

    There were four radical racist groups in Charlottesville: the KKK, the Neo-Nazis, BLM, and Antifa. When they criticize Trump for not specifically pointing to only two of them, they are simply insisting that he take sides. I have no doubt that most of the people there weren't part of any of these groups, but were people who were lawfully protesting the elimination of history. I haven't seen any evidence indicating that the guy with the car was a member of any of them, and it seems as if he were simply a nut.

    Is this a joke ! ?
    Where has the media given 'anyone' a fair deal
    I have no interest in the media's 'views'
    As for Trump himself, listen to what he has to say, you either like or not
    He should have immediately condemned the riots, then nothing 'could' have been said about the fact that he didn't :rolleyes:

    The statement that they have been making a fuss over was made before anyone knew anything about the man who ran into the people. Unlike Obama, who was known to jump in with an opinion even before the facts were known, Trump didn't make assumptions, is all.
