Trump Slams Russia Connection "Non-Sense"; Accuses "Fake News Media" Of Creating "Conspiracy Theories"

Tyler Durden's picture

With the news cycle once again squarely focused on Mike Flynn in particular, and the Trump Administration's ties to Russia in general following a volley of news last night from NYT, WaPo and CNN that Trump advisors allegedly communicated with members of Russian intellgience in the year preceding the election, it was expected that Trump's first comment of the day would be focused on the story du jour, and sure enough in his first tweet on Wednesday, President Trump blasted the “fake news media,” saying it is “going crazy with conspiracy theories and blind hatred.”

Trump also slammed MSNBC and CNN, but said Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” is “great!”

"The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!" he tweeted.

In a follow up tweet, Trump also said "this Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign."

Trump also blasted the continued "illegal leaks", saying it was "just like Russia":

"Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia"

As reported overnight, the president's tweets follow reports in The New York Times and CNN that Trump campaign aides were in "constant" contact with Russian officials.

The officials cited in the Times report said they have not discovered collaboration between the Trump campaign staff and Russian officials related to the hacking of Democratic organizations.
The Intelligence Community in a report released last month concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin called for an influence campaign in an effort to help Trump win the White House. That report noted that it did not assess the impact of Russia's actions on the 2016 election.

Trump's tweets also come after a shake-up in the White House following the resignation of his national security, Michael Flynn, late Monday. Flynn resigned after reports that he misled White House officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, on conversations he had with Russia's ambassador to the United States before Trump's inauguration. Flynn originally said he did not discuss sanctions with the ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. The Washington Post later reported that the two did discuss sanctions prior to Trump taking office.

Rupert Murdoch's mother, Elisabeth Green, was a Jewess.

Doctor Faustus's picture

So was Jesus' mother Your point?

fbazzrea's picture

uhhh, not really.

Jesus and his mother, according to Biblical texts, were direct descendants of Abraham, who migrated to Canaan from Ur, which was near Sumer in Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq). 

Jesus was of Iraqi heritage.

this "Jew" thing is VERY convoluted... and the Zionists are fakirs.

I've got to get a Twitter account.

Lone_Star's picture

Trust me, all the best stuff is posted here. I'm in the process of deleting mine, because the majority of twitter, like all "social networks" is left wing nut jobs. Which makes sense, because they're mostly living at home/in the dorms unemployed. There's also the "shareblue" (shariablue) shills and bots, formerly known as CTR (Correct The Record), who spend all day spamming BS about Hillary being a golden god and conservatives being the anti-Christ.

If a twitter user posts enough anti-globalist, anti-SJW or anti-Clinton things then the account is terminated by the cocksucker Jack Dorsey.

Reddit is almost as bad, but at least at Reddit there's r/The_Donald .

That's the same reason I closed my Facebook account in 2015.

That means: "we will keep Obama's neocon policy..."

 

bad, really bad...

EDIT: "FOX and friends" is just as much trash TV as "celebrity apprentice" was.

Fake news is the reason Flynn got caught sucking Putin's cock and had to resign right Trumpey? Your going down and not just on Putin. Good luck fixing all those leaks. More popcorn please.

Hey everyone, a warm welcome to OrangeyTheAssHat the latest flaming paper bag of horse shit dropped on our front porch.

Edward Snowden is right, about abuse from the security agencies.  How does top secret SIGINT from the NSA get into the hands of journalists?  But i guess that's just another Russian thread to follow.  Paradoxically by providing refugee status to Snowden Russia is protecting him (and us) from the deep state.

"It's a newspaper report which is not based on any facts.”

Condensed Truth.

shimmy's picture

I want Fox news to be critical of him so I can then see him flip and start slamming them.

Interesting how these libtard morons keep saying he is a Russian spy/stooge while he is saying Russia should "give back" a piece of land to Ukraine and how he is still allowing U.S forces to be built up near Russia. Usually being aggressive towards someone isn't a sign you are their stooge but hey, can't expect brainwashed cultists to grasp that. 

BigFatUglyBubble's picture

Yea.  This is getting hard to keep track of because everyone involved is extremely stupid and/or deceptive and/or inconsistent.

hangemhigh77's picture

Hey Donald START FIRING PEOPLE!! START ARRESTING AND PROSECUTING TRAITORS, here's a clue HILOCHIO IS A TRAITOR!!! Throw her hag ass in jail and FUCKING HANG HER!!!

TheMagician's picture

Trump has to establish a new National Security Agency that initiates mass arrests of the top echelon in the military industrial complex including their supportive agencies like CIA, NSA, DEA, DIA and so on. Once this process is initiated he can clamp down on Traitors in the House of Representatives and Senate posing a Threat to National Security via past cooperation with the MIC and named agencies above.

Additionally, to this, he has to immediately issue a new USD  currency backed directly by the US Government, and not the FED,  and in this manner transfer all debt to foreign creditors/buyers directly to the FED, which will collapse under said obligation.

Sure, he might be declared a dictator or even Traitor to the constitution, but this has been done before in the history of USA (Lincoln) and it saved the country in times of great peril against foreign and domestic enemies.

Yeah! Kill them all !!

He is still waiting to have a complete functional cabinet... but the clock ticks... It is not fake news it is destabilization... and the responsible are having a blast drinking cocktails while doing it... hope it stops sooner than latter.

Mr. "Trump also slammed MSNBC and CNN, but said Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” is “great!

well, of course

look, I am still very hopeful that Mr. Trump might become one of the best Presidents that the US ever had. his presidency is "but a puppy", yet

but I watch... Rupert Murdoch. and no, I am not even an enemy of Rupert

the family ties between the Trumps and the Murdochs are clear, by now. including the First Daughter being a trustee of a setup done for two Murdoch daughters

Mr. Murdoch is clearly behind Brexit, and no, even that does not really disturb me. and no, even the thing about several Brexit liars being clearly Murdoch minions is also not a problem for me

my worry is more where Murdoch wants to lead the... AngloSphere. towards the old Rhodes ideals of the Imperial Federation?

as a reminder, the Imperial Federation ideals are all about free trade, speaking English, being capable of interacting culturally in a English fashion, and being a productive "human asset". best if buying real estate where you live

it is a profoundly liberal (in the classic sense) worldview centered on English-speaking culture and methods (no racism, btw)

of course, the UK "shackled to the EU" was always a big thorn in Rupert's eye

but those ideals... well, they also allow for certain things which I find a bit unsavory. particularly the liberal use of Dogs Of War

if free trade is globalism, then Rupert is The globalist, note. not in all aspects, but in many very important ones

PoasterToaster's picture

You have a very nebulous motivation.

Ghordius's picture

interesting. why do you think so?

my motivation is, imo, all about finding out what is happening. in my line of work it's very important

now, Rupert Murdoch... is in the business of telling me what is happening. but I have to understand first where his original point of view is

when I know that, I can understand his angle, and his spin on things, all very human things, mind

take a little thing like Mr. Gove, in the UK. when it looked like he was going to be Prime Minister, I was skeptical... and right

instead, he "backstabbed" another "protege" of Mr. Murdoch, the now British Foreign Minister the Right Honourable Boris Johnson, and PM May was appointed

you don't want to find out what is happening? or why?

sinbad2's picture

Murdoch doesn't micromanage his dozens, probably hundreds of news outlets, it just wouldn't be possible.

Murdoch gathers all his managers together once a year, and bores them for hours on his views of the world. When they leave, they know exactly what he wants, but the locals make the actual decisions.

 

Ghordius's picture

yes. note that his method is very economical and effective

+1 "bores them for hours on his views of the world. When they leave, they know exactly what he wants "

remember that one blonde at Fox that was kind of critical of Mr. Trump's ways with women? works elsewhere, now

and... it gave Mr. Trump a lot of time in the news. a politician does not care how you speak about him... as long as you do speak about him

Bay of Pigs's picture

Kelly left FOX because her credibility was shot.

NBC doesnt care about that. They only care about ratings and her abilility to bullshit people with their version of fake news.

The deep state is much deeper than anyone can imagine and the perversion is wider and deeper than anyone could possibly imagine; t is what sin looks like in a cursed world.  Better get right with the KING or die in your own sin - do not neglect the free GIFT.

People will do anything for a thrill or for money including, but not even limited to eating another persons turd.

Indeed. All I can say is, prep like never before because the Deep State is NOT about to let go of the gravy train that easy.

saying that the nsa and fbi are run by criminal liberal fags with a political agenda is a conspiracy theory too. (i like conspiracy theories btw)

Can we just get the nuclear war over? I'm pretty much ready as long as I don't get a direct hit and it's what they want so fuck it! Nuke the world. Send in the evil fucks like the scene on the Denver airport wall and let's just get it over with, ferfucksakes.

illuminatus's picture

There will be no nuclear war, the elite don't want to destroy their playground. But if there is a major wipe-out of some sort, the same psychopaths that are running the show now will be running it again. If not the same ones, new ones will rise to the top to do it all over again. The problems stem from human traits like greed and lack of compassion for other living beings and lack of respect for our environment in general. I don't see a cure for this. We are a failed experiment.

redtie's picture

It's all to obvious...

Wall street, and Jobs Numbers is the real Fake News

Central banks want war before the dollar fails.

The president has about 6 months to end this economy and start the reset before He is blamed, and not Obama.

We are caught in the middle with are soon to be worthless dollars.

 

ToSoft4Truth's picture

Will the reset involving ending Social Security?  You can't have a good reset without ending Social Security.

Yeah round up alll the worthless useless eaters over 65 and send them to the Soylent Green factory. including your parents and grandparents.

I have heard your rant before at 72 years old. Where you have to work each day I spend my time practicing the basics I learned in ‘nam on my 7.62 and 5.45. Supplement by .45 ACP.  So come on after me...

sinbad2's picture

Social Security will be the least of your problems. Where will the money to pay for the military, police, schools, hospitals and roads come from?

shovelhead's picture

Except for the military, your local taxes.

Same place they always came from.

shovelhead's picture

Sure.

Right after they refund to me the money they took.
