Ever since Donald Trump officially entered the presidential race on June 16, 2015, the national news media has treated him with total disdain. It has been even worse since Donald Trump was elected President as networks such as CNN and MSNBC have devoted almost their entire broadcast schedule to attacking his personality, temperament and agenda.
Donald Trump sat down with the not-quite-yet-failing New York Times to end the year with one last hurrah, via an impromptu interview. The President, among other things, told the paper not less than sixteen times that there was no collusion with Russia. Trump could save time if he ordered the phrase to be included on the Great Seal of the United States. More practical, though, and certainly more remunerative, Trump Stores could sell a “No Collusion” hat for supporters, while Ivanka Jewelry might spell it out in diamonds for those willing to rebate some of their winnings from the new Trump tax relief for the rich bill.
"All I can tell you is this, there was no collusion, there was no nothing," Donald Trump said, this time on his way to Asia. The use of a double negative, normally, is read as an affirmation, but it doesn’t matter much what Trump says about Russia. No one believes him, anymore, not even Republicans.
