We have heard quite a bit about “fake news” over the course of the last three years, thanks to the scorching criticisms that President Trump has hurled in the direction of the mainstream media.
From the very onset of Trump’s political career, the NYC businessman mogul has been at odds with the mainstream media. His 2016 campaign heavily featured a “drain the swamp” ethos, which spooked a great many Washington DC insiders and their pals in the punditry and launched a three year smear campaign against the eventual President.
But, to be fair, the mainstream media have not been doing themselves any favors in their quest to distance themselves from these accusations, seemingly going out of their way in order to disparage Trump and those surrounding him.
Not even First Lady Melania Trump is safe.
After skewering Melania Trump’s holiday decorations in the past, The Washington Post has this year approved of her White House decor, and decided instead to criticize the former fashion model’s appearance in a widely mocked piece on Tuesday that labeled the first lady’s jacket “ridiculous.”
The liberal paper’s fashion critic Robin Givhan wrote a piece headlined, “Melania Trump’s Christmas decorations are lovely, but that coat looks ridiculous,” which criticizes the outfit the first lady wore when unveiling the décor.
The Post, which called last year’s decorations a “nightmare forest,” spent a single paragraph complimenting this year’s “lovely” edition before pivoting to disapproval.
Then came the hard-hitting nonsense that we’ve become accustomed to in 2019:
“For her tour, Mrs. Trump wears all white: a dress with a simple jewel neckline, white stiletto-heeled pumps and a white coat. The coat is draped over her shoulders as she strolls through the White House,” Givhan wrote. “The coat looks ridiculous.”
The fashion critic said “the coat is a distraction” and “a discomforting affectation taken to a ludicrous extreme.”
It’s no wonder that the American people are losing their faith in the “news” media.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
