Mainstream media casts Trump’s Asia trip in negative light

The mainstream media freaked out over a fake story about President Trump overfeeding fish in Japan and criticized him for not taking questions during a press conference in China, but several of Trump’s achievements from his Asia trip were underreported. In other words, the anti-Trump media are, as usual, picking and choosing what to focus on based on their usual narrative.

“We’ve seen everything from the feeding frenzy around the false koi story where video was actually edited to make the president look like an unpolished rube to sanctimonious criticism around the president not taking questions while with the Chinese president when his predecessor also didn’t take questions as well during his first trip there,” The Hill media columnist Joe Concha told Fox News.

Trump delivered a powerful speech Friday before a summit of Asian leaders in Vietnam, but CNN decided not to bother airing the late-night speech. The increasingly liberal CNN didn’t even mention the speech on air until a brief update in the 3 a.m. ET hour, while Fox News and MSNBC had reporters on the ground and covered the speech live.

In the speech that CNN viewers never saw, Trump reiterated his “America First” message, saying he will not “let the United States be taken advantage of anymore.” A slew of high-profile Twitter users, who apparently don’t watch CNN, simply saw the president’s speech as an opportunity to mock Trump for not fighting in the Vietnam War.

    The economy is growing, unemployment is down, no story here. Over feed a bunch of fish, following the lead of the Japanese Minister, massive scandal. The media will take the most innocuous incident and blow it up to a major story, then bury the retraction, if one is put forth, once the truth comes out. Starting with the MLK statue, to the number of people from the Patriots at the WH, to how the President dismissed a handicapped boy at the WH, and now on to how Trump takes the side of Putin over his own intelligence community (which was NOT what was said) the media will find any flaw to enhance, twist or make up to hurt the President while ignoring the good news which is right in their faces. One went as far as tweeting out a picture of a black box, accusing the President of blocking the press from a meeting in Viet Nam (it was the organizers of the meeting, not the Administration who made the rules) the sent out a picture of how the President “grimaced” while completing the awkward cross armed handshake during the photo op the next day, earning him praise from his media buddies. When called on this attitude, the press states they are NOT the media arm of the White House, or at least they aren’t since 1/20/17 when their “guy” left office.
