The press is labeling Donald Trump as a bully but he has a long way to go to reach the level of the Clintons or Obama. After seven years of Barack Obama bullying half the nation and with his clone Hillary Clinton preparing to assume Imperial rule as he did, it’s truly absurd to call Trump the bully.
The people of the left want to tell us what to say, how to say it, what to drink and eat and smoke but they have the gall to call Trump a bully.
Samantha Power had to resign years ago for calling Hillary Clinton a “monster” who would stoop to anything to get elected.
Hillary lies constantly, even about Bernie Sanders, she’s ruthless.
Hillary Clinton is a bully but she uses the press to do it. There is her faux press under the leadership of the truly awful David Brock. Brock runs the illicit Media Matters which pretends to be a non-partisan purveyor of accurate news reporting but which exists only to attack opponents.
In 2008 Hillary started the Obama is a Muslim movement, assuring “60 Minutes” that then-Sen. Barack Obama was not a Muslim, “as far as I know.” Many interpreted the qualifying phrase as insinuating that Obama could be a Muslim.
Then there is this. Hillary Clinton’s high-powered press operation “blackmailed” reporters by promising perks in exchange for flattering coverage, according to a report.
Using the Freedom of Information Act, Gawker obtained an exchange of emails between Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines and Marc Ambinder, a writer for The Atlantic magazine, that demonstrated how the process worked. Click the link to see how it works.
Hillary hasn’t been very nice to women and her husband certainly isn’t. She has bullied them to silence them. The Clintons hired detectives to track down Bill’s women or victims and develop blackmail material on them.
The following is well-documented and reported by the New York Times:
“We have to destroy her story,” Mrs. Clinton said in 1991 of Connie Hamzy, one of the first women to come forward during her husband’s first presidential campaign, according to George Stephanopoulos, a former Clinton administration aide who described the events in his memoir, “All Too Human.” (Three people signed sworn affidavits saying Ms. Hamzy’s story was false.)
When Gennifer Flowers later surfaced, saying that she had had a long affair with Mr. Clinton, Mrs. Clinton undertook an “aggressive, explicit direction of the campaign to discredit” Ms. Flowers, according to an exhaustive biography of Mrs. Clinton, “A Woman in Charge,” by Carl Bernstein.
Mrs. Clinton referred to Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern who had an affair with the 42nd president, as a “narcissistic loony toon,” according to one of her closest confidantes, Diane D. Blair, whose diaries were released to the University of Arkansas after her death in 2000.
Ms. Lewinsky later called the comment an example of Mrs. Clinton’s impulse to “blame the woman.”
Over the years, the Clinton effort to cast doubt on the women included using words like “floozy,” “bimbo” and “stalker,” and raising questions about their motives. James Carville, a longtime strategist for Mr. Clinton, was especially cutting in attacking Ms. Flowers. “If you drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find,” Mr. Carville said of Ms. Flowers. (Mr. Carville has maintained that earlier reports indicating that he had made the remark about Paula Jones, another Clinton accuser, were incorrect.)
Novelist and feminist Jennifer Weiner said, “Mr. Trump’s attacks make Mrs. Clinton look less like “a strong, self-actualized feminist leader who women can proudly get behind.” They are more “like a craven opportunist, and an apologist for a predator.”
The Obama administration are all abusive bullies who have managed the press and have all but eliminated any threats from potential whistleblowers since Obama first entered office.
He is a bully but does it in such a civil way, though some might call it sneaky. Obama doesn’t curse or yell loudly but his underhanded manipulation concerns some more. It’s the same approach Hillary has promised to use. She has said she will use Obama’s pen and phone tactics and in some cases, such as in granting amnesty, she will do it more so.
The DOJ spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen and even named him as a co-conspirator in a leak case for the purpose of obtaining a secret court order to spy on him and his family.
The White House was able to spy on the AP by misusing a subpoena. The spying had the effect of drying up many of the AP reporters’ sources.
There is also the James Risen case. The Obama Administration is attempting to force him to name his sources in yet another whistleblower case. Mr. Obama doesn’t care about our civil liberties.
This White House has investigated more whistleblower cases than all previous administrations combined. No one crosses them, no American that is.
Jennifer Rubin at The Washington Post referenced several stories of bullying by the White House in one of her columns. Rubin wrote that reporters Woodward, Founier, and others were all beaten down with verbal threats and abusive language by White House officials. She mentioned one case that concerned Lanny Davis.
Lanny Davis, a serious liberal, wrote something in The Washington Times that displeased the Obama Administration. John Solomon, the editor at the Washington Times, received a phone call threatening to remove the newspaper’s White House credentials unless Lanny Davis’ column was discontinued.”
A very senior official threatened Bob Woodward. “It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this,” Woodward said.
Others were threatened, including the White House press corps. “This is a warning shot over the bow of the White House press corps. ‘Don’t screw with us. Look what we are doing to your God, Woodward. Imagine what we’ll do to you.’” The reference to Woodward followed Woodward’s assertion in his book The Price of Politics and in the Washington Post that Obama admitted sequester was his idea. This was at a time when Jay Carney was claiming that it was not Obama’s idea.
The Washington Post, which took on the issue of White House bullying. They shoot first and ask questions later,” said reporter Julie Mason. “In one of the e-mails that reporters have dubbed “nasty grams,” White House press secretary Jay Carney branded one of Mason’s stories ‘partisan, inflammatory and tendentious.’”
And there is this from Carl Cannon:
Carl Cannon, a longtime political journalist who is the Washington editor of the Web site Real Clear Politics, says he recently got zinged. After his site posted a headline and video of President Obama promoting a political fundraising raffle at the White House in June — which Republicans said could be a violation of campaign-finance law — Cannon heard about it in no uncertain terms. A deputy press official let loose “a screaming, profane diatribe that lasted two or three phone calls,” Cannon recalled. “It hurt my ear.”
The White House even bullied Ford Motor Company into removing an ad that was critical of competitors who took the bailout money. Detroit News reporter Daniel Howes said, “You’re not allowed, in Obama’s America, to disparage the auto bailout, or — indirectly — Obama. Especially during the election cycle.”
Bob Beckel, another very serious liberal, who once served as Jimmy Carter’s Chief of Staff, told Bill Hemmer on Fox News back in October 2013 that someone in the White House told him to stop talking about delaying the implementation of Obamacare.
Beckel said, “The other day on The Five I called for a delay for the implementation of this for five months or six months to a year. And I got a call from somebody at the White House who absolutely bludgeoned me over it…”
A White House official even bullied a prolific conservative Twitter user named Kevin Eder, who in 2011, was caught in the sights of Jesse Lee who made Eder the object of his Progressive discontent. Eder was baffled by it and said, referring to himself, that he was quite literally “a nobody.”
When you talk about bullying, maybe we should talk about that in relation to the Democrats.
