    Ironically, it is that kind of pious patronizing condescension that got Trump elected

    Why is the president fair game for criticism but are judges and the media are not?

    Seems to me, the press and judges need as much healthy suspicion as the president.

    Attention extremist, obstructionist, anti-equality, self-proclaimed "patriots". Those which willingly choose to remain living under the bubble. Please put down the Breitbart, National Enquirer and all things Drudge prior to commenting and lecturing the college educated demographic on the topic of "fake news". Not surprising to those of us which follow legitimate/reputable media sources, again no members of the "alternate facts" faction are aware (and willing to admit) specifically what the media throughout the world is stating regarding Trump's absolutely embarrassing display of a "press conference". Imagine if that was your boss or a family member rambling on with misinformation/lies while accepting zero responsibility whatsoever! Even worse. Imagine what the alt-right would be putting forth if that was President Obama. You most certainly wouldn't be praising him. As you all do regarding your supreme leader regardless of the impending consequences. Will impeachment proceedings begin before or after 7/4/17?

    What I find interesting is there are those who now praise Trump unwaveringly and yet don't see the irony of their comments. For example, one poster here loved to call out how many vacations the Obama family took, and Obama's love of golf, as a sign of arrogance and disrespect for the publics funds.

    A conservative watch dog group estimated in a published report that Obama's trumps cost the US taxpayers about 97 million dollars over 8 years in office. The same group has now come out and said that these first three weeks... not 8 years.... Trump has cost the US taxpayer about 10 million dollars in his three weekend trips to Florida and security for his wife in New York.

    And yet, there is now silence from this same people, because evidently weekend trips to Florida are ok, playing golf on the weekends now is ok. And that the real problem is that we have "fake news". Obama's trips weren't fake news...... but Trump spending 10 million in 3 weeks is fake news.

    It is obvious that what is or isn't fake news is highly objective.... not if the event actually happened or not.

    It's so interesting to look at the Des News threads and check out the likes at the bottom of an article like this. The Trump supporters # of likes seem to be growing less and less by the story and the posts of those who call this ridiculous administration out and refuse to be fed lies and like it? We'll there we see the teens and twenties, don't we. As we now come to the point that some Trump supporters are literally pounding their fists on the table and saying "No! Allow him to lie and blame the free press for everything or you're not being patriotic and it's making me vewy vewy angwy!" If it weren't so sad, it would be amusing. It was sad to lose an election to this man and these people. But I'm seeing the press and good people come alive like I've not seen since the end of the Vietnam War. Keep hammering and prodding Press! The more the bubble people hate you--and they will as long as you are telling the truths they can't stand to hear--, the more you know that you are doing your job well.

    One Vote says he is hiding something. However, President Trump went to the press conference without a list of whom to call on like all other presidents. He took all questions and kept taking questions. He didn't orchestrate the news conference by only choosing reporters who will ask good questions. He acknowledged reporters from any organization even if he had a beef with them. This was the most transparent news conference of modern times.

    Des News--I am impressed. You reported this disaster meltdown of a press conference in fair and honest fashion and though you will be despised for that by some of your most loyal and longtime readers, let me be the first to say that you should be proud of yourselves and you are fighting the good fight. When he claims that people are mad at the press, he fails to mention that included in those are his in the bubble core supporters (who are also people who don't like hearing that flat out lies are flat out lies) and ALSO--people who don't like Fox News and Brietbart. Any sane and caring American is DEPENDING on the kind of reporting shown here. I've often chided this publication in the past, but fair is fair. You are doing good, important work.

    The reaction of Trump to press conferences and press coverage is that of a person that is hiding a lot of baggage. He has a war on the press, except for fox and friends, in anticipation of the facts about Russia and his finances that will drop soon. If you do not want leaks to prove the truth, do not lie and try to hide the truth. If you think our intelligence community has a lot of information to show what his team has been doing, imagine what the Russians are holding.

    This was a great press conference.

    What it was: It was the president speaking directly to THE PEOPLE about the dishonest press in an honest and no PC way. The president was saying what many of us feel.
    What it was not: George Bush style political mumbo-jumbo which causes you to yawn and change the channel

    President Trump is better than his word -- he is better than what most (even supporters) hoped for. President Trump calls out bad actors instead of ignoring them. The CNN and NBC media sites are essentially Democrat party media programming under the disguise of the press. There is NO free press in these organizations -- they are leftist media / propoganda / entertainment sites and nothing more. Jeff Zuckerberg has lowered CNN to the same level as MSNBC now -- he has been the CEO of both. I wouldn't trust a weather report from either.

    Finally -- the intel leaking must be found and stopped. This is a felony.

    These sites-- CNN , MSNBC and others hate not only the president but Christians and conservatives alike. This is real HATE not just disagreement. This is NOT new news either.

    Hey Illuminated –

    “ I feel God has answered mine and many others of the silent majority who make this country work.”

    What majority? Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by over three million votes.

    And there is nothing silent about the mendacious Donald Trump and his like-minded supporters.

    Let’s face it. The only thing Trump has against the media is that they report the truth, while Trump and his supporters fear the truth . . . Like vampires fear sunlight.

    Hey banliberals -

    “Trump is a liar? “

    Yes, he is. Thank you for asking. He lies more than ANYONE I have ever seen . . . MULTIPLE times a day sometimes.

    BTW, your post is loaded with “alternative facts.”

    "The" big reason why President Trump caught fire and won the election was because he spoke so plainly and truthfully minus all the traditional polititian double-talk and memorized talking points. This press conference was a great example of why people love the man and his honesty. He speaks exactly what we believe and think but don't have the forum to say.

    1. The majority of the media is nothing but an extention of the Democrat party ....FACT
    2. CNN and MSNBC are particularly hateful and one - sided in their reporting and commentary morning to night....FACT
    3. The intel community has some Obama hold overs who are leaking top secret intel to the media -- this is a felony. ....FACT

    The presidents conference was blunt but at the same time he didn't shout or rant like Democrat's in congress do. Yesterday Nancy Pelosi and John Lewis held a news conference ranting about a tweet from Mike Flynn and calling for congressional hearings etc... As it turns out the tweet was FAKE but that didn't stop Pelosi and Lewis from ranting. This sort of thing goes on daily with the Democrats. Disgusting!!

    This is the same guy that praised the "wiki-leaks" during the election. He said they were a great thing. A really really good thing. But now that the leaks are about him, they are "criminal".

    I am really trying to give Trump the benefit of doubt. Our nation depends on it. But it seems every time he opens his mouth, he is blaming someone else for the situation. It's the Obama administrations fault. It's the media's fault. It's the court's fault. It's the intelligence agencies fault. It's Nordstrom's fault. They are all really really bad people that aren't treating him fair.

    We all agree Washington needs to change. But just like the Republicans kept telling Obama's supporters, you can't blame the past administration, Trump and his supports should not be using the excuse of blaming as well.

    Trump on other fronts had a good week last week. But the side shows he creates distract from any good he may be doing.

    One has to wonder whether this guy has anybody telling him how foolish he looks when all he does is talk about himself, refuse to answer question and belittle those around him. If he came out even halfway conciliatory about the way he's managed things this first month, I'm sure Americans and possibly even the media would look at him more favorably. But every time he has a chance to, he just doubles down on ridiculous points that really don't matter (such has his winning margin). I'm not sure why he is so opposed to coming out and just answering questions in a professional manner. It's amazing the contrast that he is with most of the other Republican candidates, and really his entire cabinet. Aside from Bannon and Miller, these are all pretty good guys and I can't see any of them acting this foolish.

    Someone needs to explain to Trump that by attacking the media and the intelligence community, the more they are going to push back against him.

    I cannot understand how anyone can support this man. This news conference was unbelievable. He is such an embarrassment to the country.

    He he can't stop bragging, he can't stop lying, he can't stop bringing up the election and Hillary.

    I keep thinking about what Fox News and its followers would be saying if our intelligence officials had recordings of Hillary's top people talking with Russians. If it were Hillary that had nominated people so utterly unqualified for cabinet positions - such as DeVose, if Hillary was charging the tax payers for 3 difference residences and trips to Florida every week-end, if she were making money off of her presidency, if she had refused to release her taxes, if Bill Clinton had filed a lawsuit whining about how he won't be able to make as much money from his new role, if Hillary had already filed paperwork for her re-election campaign so she could charge the tax payer for a "rally" in Florida this weekend.

    Fox News and its followers would be foaming at the mouth.

    How can people be so blindly partisan? I really do wonder why they can't acknowledge what is so obvious?

    I regularly watch France24 over the internet. Their commentators have no U.S. partisan bias, and aren't looking back at our election. No sour grapes from them. They are trying to analyze and understand President Trump's current actions (and tweets). President Trump is media challenged in France. His cabinet regularly gets better press than he does.

    Are you familiar with the Blind Men and the Elephant? Each blind man had a shred of truth and each was wrong. That is what is wrong with politics and public opinion, both parties rely on selling rather than facts. You, me, and the Donald are each entitled to our opinions, we are not entitled to the facts.

    And his approval rating drops to below 40% --the lowest approval of every President for the same period since before Eisenhower. Of course, those in the alternate world of alternate facts and fake news will dismiss these numbers.

    He was never in an elected office of any kind, nor any appointed one. His first month of presidential service isn't quite up, and there seems to be no shortage of opposition to him, even among GOP Congressional reps. But Mr. Illusionist is already set to compare Mr. Trump to...George Washington?
    Washington wasn't perfect, but he did serve through two terms with a minimum of disputes. Oh, and there was one other thing - he led his new nation's army to victory over the world's largest military power. Mr. Trump has never spent a day in his country's military service.
    Personally, I hope Trump is so great in his new job that he makes us all forget Lincoln, FDR and Reagan. But so far he doesn't seem to have spent any time on the learning curve.

    Because he is not acting like a rational person. We don't have to excuse the behaviour he displayed today. Nor the disconnect from reality. I know he's president. I cannot let him behave like this as President in office because his behaviour is unacceptable.

    Rasmussen's final poll was Clinton 2pts ahead of Trump, which does match the popular vote but the real clear politics (RCP) final polling average of major polls had it at just over 3pts for Clinton so it's not like it was off by much. The RCP average for Trump's approval rating is a net -5.7. Rasmussen's the only one even higher than +1 (it's at +10). Notably it's the only one that asks likely voters while the others ask registered voters or adults so I guess the people who don't like Trump should probably get registered to vote and show up in 2018.

  • 1aggie SALT LAKE CITY, UT
    Feb. 16, 2017 5:29 p.m.

    A few of Trump's "alternative facts:"

    Terrorism and terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe have "gotten to a point where it's not even being reported."

    "The murder rate in our country is the highest it’s been in 47 years."

    Says he "won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally."

    many, many more....

    Trump has long been attacking the media, threatening to open up "libel laws," while he himself has revealed himself almost daily to be blatantly "truth" challenged.

    Despite the outlier Rasmussen poll, most polls report people in the U.S. give Trump a high disapproval rating--one of the highest disapproval ratings at this point in his presidency when compared to other modern presidents.

    I enjoy watching the4 network news these days. Scott Pelly led tonight defending the work of the media and fact-checking Trump on his approval rating.

    These guys still don't get it. Trump doesn't care. They didn't get elected; Trump did. The networks blew their chance to have a honeymoon. They chose attack instead.

    Trump began today by saying he was going directly to the people because the media is slanting the story.

    This is a battle of control over the narrative. Trump won't be intimidated. This standoff will only strengthen new media against the networks and the wires.

    An adversarial press left out of the loop is not healthy...but it seems inevitable.

    Most amazing press conference I've ever seen. Everyone I talked to at work today agreed it was about darn time someone stood up to the lying fake media. Rasmussen (which called the election almost spot on) has Trump's approval at 55%. After this, watch his approval go even higher.

    The American people can see that Trump is being treated incredibly unfair by the media and they've been begging for years for someone like Trump to come along and finally say what everyone was thinking.

    I'm proud I voted for this man. I see him as a modern George Washington figure, a guy who is willing to be a true leader and stare the embedded power structure in the face and not blink. Is he the perfect Conservative? No. But he's the right man at the right time. I feel God has answered mine and many others of the silent majority who make this country work.

    I completely agree that Hillary lied about a ton of stuff. But as a true conservative I have to also recognize that Trump doesn't even know when he's telling the truth.

    That someone else lied does not justify Trump's behaviour. He's trampling on the Constitution and attacking and threatening a free press.

    Yes Trump was maybe the lesser of two evils. But for the people to allow these despicable behaviours coming from Trump, would be a sign that perhaps America really is just as weak as Trump said it was.

    I think America is better than Trump and will quickly show him that telling a Jewish reporter to sit down, because he dared reference a rise in anti-semitism, is not what they stand for.

    Let's help Donald out. Out.

  • fight4liberty Herriman, UT

    Whether America continues to be the country that affords us liberty and the freedoms we enjoy, is the most important issue. Those freedoms have been under constant attack for the last century.

    Presidents come and go, politicians come and go and many live in infamy for being bad, or are famous for being good, but America still stands. Each president writes his own history.

    But the glaring truth is that when America took the secular low road, the country's social divide has only worsened, people have "I" disease and become amoral. People no longer look through the lense of liberty & freedom of which keeps the US a free country, and prefer to live in a global world, where we watch the EU currently crumble because of it.

    The social decay will eventually destroy America, and we will all feel the pain.

    What is good or bad has very different meaning to everyone, which is obvious on these posts.

    Those who stand on the side of truth will prevail.

    You know I've been thinking about this lots and I agree that there is too much complaining about Trump. A President who loses the majority vote has the task of working across the aisle with both houses so as to show respect for the electorate. Trump however is acting as if he won a huge majority. Now maybe he believes that, but it isn't true.

    So to keep the country united I think it's time to seriously pursue the impeachment process. Begin by respectfully writing your Congressmen and Senators. Let them understand that your trust in them will hinge on how they address Trump's erratic leadership.

    This is not a time for bickering, it is a time for sober action. And how cool is it to have the freedom to stand up against a flawed leader.

    denied having ever talked to him.

    They are responsible for protecting this NATION -- not Donald Trump.

    other than Fox news I wouldn't trust a weather report from CNN , NBC, ABC, CBS. The best thing for Trump to continue to do is ignore these media outlets. They have their own far left agenda and it isn't based on fact but it does contain loads of fiction. Replace Obamacare, cut taxes, develop energy again, rebuild the military and forget the rest of the left wing noise. One thing the Trump administration must do is have AG Sessions appoint a special prosecutor to flush out the intel leakers. The intel leakers pose a clear and present danger to the United States and are most likely Obama hold overs and my guess is they are being paid to leak the intel to the press. This is a felony with prison time attached.

    "why not act like a rational person and let him be in office before you dole out your armchair criticism. "

    He is in office. He's done many things that are reasonable subjects of criticism. He's proposed (campaign and after) doing many things that are reasonable subjects of criticism. It's irrational to ignore all that he's done or to wait until he does something before voicing objection to something he wants to do.

    I listened to the news conference and even though it is the Deseret News. They fell into the same trap as most of the other media outlets. Trump said he doesn't mind bad news stories if they are true but what twists him off is when the media distorts the truth to meet a certain agenda. I have looked for the last several days and the amount of blatant lies and half truths that have masqueraded as real news have been almost uncountable. whether you like trump or have diametrically opposite opinions, he won and deserves to be given the chance to succeed. If you don't like it, civilly tell your elected representatives, if they don't respond the way you feel is correct vote them out at the next election. But until then you just have to suck it up and let the majority rule. We have taken several years to get where we are and it will take several years to undo some of the nonsense that has been going on.

After a year you should really have something to moan about, then your argument may have credence. Right now its just hot air, which is very boring.

    The 4 yr election cycle is just that and your incessant whining only keeps you entertained. All people are flawed! All presidents past present and future are and will be flawed men!

    Only the test of time will give proof of sucess or failure. Like all presidents past.

    President Trump appears to speak almost exclusively in exaggeration, often to the point of being blatantly dishonest. We need the media to point out President Trump's misstatements and keep him honest!

    "It was a train wreck… The best train wreck! Everybody agreed, it was the best possible train wreck. They loved it, and everybody cheered as the train went off the rails..."

    Obama never talked to reporters like that.

    He never had to.

    ""The press has become so dishonest that if we don't talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people," Trump said."

    --- It's called Projection, Donald. What you're doing is projecting your own faults onto others, in this case, the media.

    The people are growing tired of the man child blaming the messenger for recording him.
    We are not blind and the Media is the only group who will apparently hold Trump responsible for his actions. The GOP only investigate Dem's, Donald told Jason not to even ask, and Jason rolled over for a tummy rub.

    Trump is a petulant child and will soon be in Jail and his loyalists will cry how unfair that he got Caught, not that he did anything wrong.
