Why Does Media Love To Hate Trump?

I’m astonished at the ongoing and persistently nasty attacks on President Donald Trump which are still dominating the news here in the UK. The protest led by so-called celebrities is just the latest manifestation of what is clearly a diabolical rage against this man, democratically elected and saying and doing nothing that he didn’t promise in his campaign. The American people voted for him in full knowledge of his ideas and plans, according to their electoral system. What makes these “celebrities” think we care a toss about what they think, anyway? They’re as out of touch with the reality of life for ordinary people as are the professional politicians. Click here for an example and note that Jodie Foster et al take plenty of care to keep their own home borders safe and secure. They pay big money to keep intruders out of their personal patch, while purporting not to care tuppence about the security of their national borders. I say “purporting” because, personally, I find it difficult to believe that any of them seriously object to Mexican drug dealers and criminals being obstructed in their attempts to cross the border into the USA.  

In any case, Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the southern border was really nothing new; even on the UK TV news channels in recent days there has been an admission (tucked away in their oceans of wordage mocking the Trump presidency) that there are already stretches of wall and fencing on the Mexican border, dating back years, and placed there by previous Presidents of the USA;  presumably they were as concerned as Trump about the number of illegal immigrants, not to mention drug dealers and other criminals, entering the country. So, the wall is clearly just an excuse, a stick with which to beat Donald Trump.  But why?   

Obviously, he is not perfect – no more “perfect” than any other world leader, or any previous president. So, why the appalling viciousness that is being served up in an undisguised campaign to force Donald Trump out of office? One commentator on the Oscar protests said on this morning’s Sky News (review of the papers) programme that if these same celebrities were expressing concern about Islamist terrorism, about which people ARE worried, there would be howls of derision [from the same audience cheering the attacks on their democratically elected President]. Exactly. So, what IS going on – see if you can spot the answer in the video below…
