During his podcast Tuesday, Bill O’Reilly took on the fake Trump scandals and the media’s role in not pursuing the truth. The goal is to wear Trump down.
But this is the scandal du jour and the strategy on the part of the anti-Trump press is wear Trump down, report so many bad things about him every single day that folks just throw up their hands and go: he’s incompetent, shouldn’t be in there. That’s the overall strategy.
Again, what they want to do and what they are doing, kind of successfully, is every day there’s a different screw up. Every day they’re going to hammer Trump. They’re never going to say, hey the housing market is on fire, Americans are feeling confident about the economy so much so that they’re buying houses at higher prices now. They’re never going to give you that. You’re never going to get that, ever. It’s going to be Trump screwed up. Trump screwed up. Trump screwed up. OK.
That is always their strategy.
The media is corrupt and O’Reilly points that out.
So we have a media in America that no longer seeks the truth, ok, doesn’t check the truth, doesn’t try to find it. And I’ve told you that before. It’s beyond a reasonable doubt. That’s what’s happening. Much of that national media that does not seek the truth does so because it’s committed to ideology.
O’Reilly took the listeners through the Washington Post story of Trump’s alleged sharing of classified information with two Russian leaders. We won’t go over that again. He mentions that the information is based on secondary sources, anonymous sources with nobody identified.
“Cable runs wild, the Internet runs wild. Here’s Trump screwing up. This is the scandal du jour, like the soup du jour. Scandal of the day. This story will last one or two days, that it. It’s inconsequential..,” O’Reilly said.
General McMaster, a straight shooter, was adamant that it’s the leakers that are violating national security, not the president. He said the premise of the story was false. The media then spends their time 24/7 claiming McMaster is parsing words.
O’Reilly said, “It’s clear to any fair minded person that general McMaster, the national security adviser, who was in the meeting with President Trump, disputes any dissemination of classified information that was inappropriate…So McMaster says there was nothing untoward. He didn’t screw up. He just was trying to get the Russians’ attention and trying to get the Russians to help us fight ISIS. And it was totally legitimate. Totally appropriate.”
McMaster is “not going to go out and lie, because his whole legacy is on the line if he does that, in my opinion.”
The press did start to backtrack when McMaster spoke to the press. The Washington Post is sticking by their story because that’s what they were told through their secondary sources and that part is accurate.
The former Fox host said that President Trump did not violate national security. “According to McMaster, he didn’t violate anything. He didn’t do anything inappropriate or dangerous or foolish or anything like that. But you’re never going to get that kind of perspective from the anti-Trump press.”
O’Reilly warned – and we all know it’s true – that the foreign trip is going to be more of the same.
O’Reilly can’t watch cable and all the speculation any longer – it gives him a “massive headache”.
“So the president of the United States cannot have a conversation with the foreign minister of a powerful country about how he wants that country to help us against ISIS and here’s why they should do it?”
“Come on. It’s just it’s really, really pernicious and hateful. And again, I’m not, it’s not my job to stand up for the Trump administration, but it is my job to be fair, and this is insane. Insane,” he concludes.
