    No longer just the "fake news"

    "The press is doing everything within their power to fight the magnificence of the phrase, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! They can’t stand the fact that this Administration has done more than virtually any other Administration in its first 2yrs. They are truly the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"

    he is correct, Americans are treated like Mushrooms by the media, kept in the dark and fed nothing but fertilizer.
    who was it that signed indefinite detention w/o trial into law? that took a massive dump on American rights, but the orange clown is the true threat :rolleyes:

    The free press is not the enemy of the people. I don’t like Fox News, I don’t consider them an enemy of the people. If people can’t determine truth from fiction, accept facts that don’t agree with their narrative, etc, then they are their own worst enemy.

    Trump is the least-trustworthy person one should listen to regarding the press. Any source that doesn’t have his skid marks on their nose is “fake news”, and those who can tell you what he had for lunch two days ago get shout-outs on Twitter.

    You just described Trump. So I guess you think he's the enemy too?

    “The Press” has the right to publish what they want, including opinions.

    The President has the right to say what he wants, including opinions.

    Both are protected under the first amendment.

    Of the two, I trust the latter more than the former.

    On this we agree... but
    I guess the two word answer you are looking for is "Obama did".

    But if you want a more meaty answer with less fertilizer (info stolen from the wiki):
    Indefinite detention w/o trial was signed into law as part of the PATRIOT act back in October 2001. In 2013, the House of Representatives and the Senate reauthorized the National Defense Authorization Act. The amendments to effectively ban indefinite detention of US Citizens were defeated in both chambers. Moreover, on July 17, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit struck down an injunction against indefinite detention of U.S. citizens by the president under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. On December 26, 2013, President Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014.

    BOTH Bush AND Obama should be tried for treason along with all of those in congress who helped pass it, no matter if they are republican or democrat.

    I don't think you have that many minimum security club meds (err prisons) in the states... Perhaps the could fund themselves a luxury resort in Gitmo?

    Sad that some still want to deflect to Obama. Please share with me the time(s) Obama declared the media the enemy of the people.

    And the fact that some still hold the media to a higher standard than Trump is extremely sad. The fact that despite his thousands of lies - people still trust him at all is equally, if not more sad.

    Absolutely. Thats exactly what i meant, when i said i trust one more than the other. Because everything is absolutes./s

    Wind turbines causing cancer vs 2 years of witch-hunt bs, and obvious/blatant political bias guised as “reporting”.

    You could TRY and go one thread without bringing up Hillary or Obama. I'm just saying. You could try. This thread is about the current POTUS stating the press is the enemy of the people.

    Actions and words BOTH matter.

    If the press was as fundamentally and consistently dishonest as Trump, they would be out of business.

    No. Because we don't believe the media is the ENEMY of the people. We can criticize the media. But they are not the enemy.

    So you agree that Trump should be removed from office. Glad we settled that.

    That's for the voters to decide... I do not think he acts presidential but you all are gonna have to run a non socialist, non extreme left candidate for me to even consider not voting for him in 2020....

    Howard Schultz may be a non wacky left alternative...

    Here we see the Trump cult in top form. Their leader bestows a decree from on high and his followers lap it up.
