Unfair media has Trump supporters quietly waiting

Smart voters do not divulge who they are going to vote for. They keep it confidential.

This is the old-school adage of never discuss religion or politics in public.

The mainstream media has hatred and bias against Donald Trump. During a recent town-hall meeting on NBC, it sounded like the moderator Savannah Guthrie showed up to challenge, interrogate and debate the president. She sounded more like an investigative reporter wanting and trying hard to find dirt with her constant interruption and badgering of the leader of the free world. If Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) had a face it surely would have belonged to Savannah that evening.

The mainstream media never reports on any of the positive and great things Donald Trump has done for our country. It’s all about hatred and never getting over losing the 2016 election. The irony is they are constantly asking the president if he loses will there be a peaceful change of power and will he leave office? The Democrats have never given him a peaceful change of power since day one.

There are still many closet Trump supporters. Many citizens stay quiet and keep their views to themselves in fears of violence by Democrats and other left-wing organizations. Some keep quiet in fear of losing their jobs and even to keep peace with family and friends. The left, mainstream media and Hollywood elite have become unhinged and intolerant with anyone who disagrees with them. Liberals used to be tolerant and free thinkers. Not any more.

Many countries have nominated our president for Nobel peace prize awards, you hardly ever hear about this on the network news or talk shows. One of the countries is Australia. They recently nominated Trump over his peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. (UAE) Just imagine Israelis can now fly direct and cheap to Abu Dhabi, and vice versa. The first historic flight took place on August 31, 2020.

The U.S. mainstream media reported next to nothing on this. One of the nominating professors, David Flint, pointed to an idea he referred to as the “Trump Doctrine,” explaining, “This is why the pollsters will be wrong and Donald J. Trump will continue on making America great again.”

The Democrats will never acknowledge any good that our president has done. He could find the cure for COVID and the Dems would be calling for another impeachment hearing.

The recent blockage by NBC, CBS, ABC and social-media giants Facebook and Twitter of the Hunter Biden story of engaging in corrupt activities with his father Joe Biden during his tenure as vice president should be a rude awakening to everyone in America that the mainstream media in America news is biased and fake. Just imagine if Don Jr. had done what Hunter Biden allegedly did.

I am not going to vote for a party (the Dems) that burns the flag, sits through the national anthem, chants death to America, kills babies through abortion and has declared war on the police.

They say Donald Trump is a terrible politician, however, he’s a great president and even a better leader. This is why you will see Donald J. Trump baffle all pollsters again with an encore, hana-hou performance on election night to keep pace with everything else happening in 2020. Four more years!

    I could not agree more. I am afraid of where our country is headed when the media (propaganda machines) decide how people should behave and how they should vote and who they want running our nation. That is not democracy and people should be afraid. I seen this same tactic used in now oppressive countries where people have no voice.

      Wait a minute here. It is tRump and FAUX news who are deciding how people should behave and how they should vote and who they want running our nation. What people should be afraid of is an autocrat wannabe (tRump) who idolizes Kim Jong-un, Putin, Balsonaro and wants to become more like them and control the masses. He defines “oppressive”.

          I have never seen such biased, cut throat attacks on a sitting president, I can remember when the news gave a story or breaking news with unbiased information, and we the people could make our own opinion from that information, but after President Donald Trump got elected, that all got thrown out the window. I used to watch news every night until they decided to spit in the faces of his supporters, and he never got a single positive thing said about him, all they would do is for their entire show was bash the president and every channel was saying the same thing but out of a different mouth and for 4 years they thought they would have the entire nation against him but they missed that by a country mile, and it only caused the exact opposite, it lit a fire in patriotic Americans that will burn for a long long time. I would love to have seen what the last 4 years could of been if the media would have gave the President the respect and the credit for his accomplishments,and yes contrary to the media, president Trump accomplished a lot in the last 4 years and had they gave him that we would of seen him ,in my opinion, getting 85 or 90 million votes or more ,I urge people to go look up what he has done,and don’t use the mainstream media outlets to find them, go to the federal government page or to a conservative website, just somewhere different than a Trump hating website that wouldn’t give him an attaboy if he was responsible for finding the cure for alzheimers or cancer, give it a shot and remember we his supporters know all about his life choices before his presidency and him not being politically correct or his bluntness but we didn’t base our vote for him on those things, well not being politically correct and blunt we did, and we the people gave him a chance and he kept his promise and worked on or accomplished most of the things he ran on in the 2016 campaign and election. When’s the last time we had a president that actually worked on everything he promised……..or when’s the last time we had a president who worked for free and actually lost money being president and gave up a perfect life of playing golf, kicking back with his family and friends that love and respect him, and he sacrificed all that and then some to MAGA,and he done so much with the media and Democrats on his back, imagine what he could of done without them on his back, I am very optimistic and confident that President Trump will prevail and prove that he won this election and if that happens, I’m sure the dems will repeat the last 4 yrs except 10xs worse

      This trope of “the media is so unfair to Donald” is nothing but a red herring. It’s his followers attempt to set up an equivalency, to try to make it seem like his presidency is just another in the line that began with Washington, and gave us Lincoln, Millard Fillmore and Chester Arthur. Wrong! This is in fact “american carnage” (to quote Stephen Miller) and institutional carnage—and has been a once-in-an-epoch break-glass-in-case-of-emergency moment. The media, without which there is no check on government corruption, is fulfilling its 4th branch role, and doing so in the face of unprecedented corruption and attacks by an unhinged would-be demagogue who openly espouses the Putins, Dutertes and Orbins of the world, whose playbooks include muzzling, violence and elimination of a free press. So make no mistake it isn’t poor Donald-as-victim here. If anything it’s We the People, our institutions and traditions. …And our free press doing the job of checks and balances for the feckless invertebrates who inhabit the current republican Senate.

      Donal Trump was very smart the day he made the media his enemy and discredited them as fake. He understood that the media could only do one thing to him. A man that has been in the spotlight for so many years understand one thing. That is the power a TV personality has and how loyal fans can be and the power of scandal, and credibility.

      This man knew the media had alot of information on him. Information which was not shared before he was a candidate for president because when just a TV star your dirt doesn’t matter much. But in the political world prior to Trump moral in political leaders mattered. Trump has no moral. Trump knew he wouldn’t be elected so he used his celebrity and demonized the media telling America the media was the enemy of the people.

      Truthfully it is him, Donald Trump, the enemy of the people. The source of the fake news. It is not fact just because Trump says so. There are citable credibility to true journalists story’s. Commentary from commentators on News networks are not facts. That is true on any network. Some commentators look for facts others just talk based on opinion. None of a commentators show should be taken as true.

      An interview is an interview and Trump hates them cause he hates giving truthful answers. He hates the media asks him about the things he should be terribly ashamed of doing. He is not being treated unfairly. Tough questions come with the job of President of the United States. He does not have ultimate power. We have checks and balances. We have rights to know whats going on, we have the right to know what our leaders are doing, we all can become journalists ourselves and go out and investigate and find out what’s going on to share with eachother facts, so all that are so passionate about this guy being treated unfairly. Please tell me how. Please tell me why he is singled out. If any one acted like him the same thing would be happening.
      The media is here to inform and make the public aware of what is happening and what threats we face. This is so dangerous what he has done by making us doubt the dangers we face.

      DONALD TRUMP KNEW THE MEDIA WAS THE THING THAT WOULD SHOW HIS TRUE NATURE. WITH THEM IN HIS WAY HE WOULD NOT WIN. SO HE MADE THEM THE BAD GUY. HOW DID HE EVER PROVE THE MEDIA IS FAKE. HE NEVER HAS. WHY CAUSE IT IS NOT. DONALD TRUMP IS THE FAKE NEWS AND THE ONE TREATING AMERICANS UNFAIRLY.

          I love when you trumpsters tell people to turn off CNN or say that they are brainwashed by the media. The truth of the matter is you trumpsters are brainwashed by trump and will believe anything he says without conditions or research on your own. God forbid the nasty media asks trump a tough question just like every President before him has had to answer. But when they do they are just being mean to him. No it is you and your trumpsters that need to take the blinders off. How do you think Fox news and the right would of reacted if all the things that has happened the last 4 years happened under a Democrat? It astounds me that trump still has all the support he gets from you people. There is no doubt in my mind if a Democratic President did all the things that trump has done the last 4 years then that Democratic President would no where near have the support that trump has today. We have more backbone than you trumpsters. Trump lies pretty much every time he opens hos mouth. He takes credit for policies that were enacted under other administrations and refused to take responsibility for anything. I cannot wait until January 20th in which on that day we get to flush toilet an watch the big orange turd go down the toilet!

      Trump is an awful, divisive man. He’s tactless, classless, gauche and morally repugnant. He was a terrible president, incapable of bringing us together as a nation. A president who paints half or more of his country as the enemy has no business in office. I might not agree with you on much, but I’m not your enemy. I’m tired of the hateful antagonism that has defined his presidency. He’s really brought out the very worst in some of us. I say, good riddance to bad rubbish! I look forward to a future where grown people aren’t hollering insults like children. It’s time to admit you were wrong. If you truly love America, leave him in the past. Forget that hate you’ve held in your hearts for so long. It must be exhausting. Let’s work together. That’s the REAL American way, not this crazy party line towing nonsense.

        How as the election stolen? Please tell me? Election officials from both sides of the aisle have indicated that there was no wide spread fraud with this election. Studies have shown that there never has been wide spread fraud with any election. Trump’s own appointee to Homeland security has said this was the safest and most secure election ever. So because trump said it was stolen with no basis of facts to back it up you believe a man who has lied his entire political life and well before that. No honey people like you are the problem.

    Kimo Rosen’s belief that tRump is “a great president and even better leader” has ignored the greatest bungling of any president, the management of the COVID pandemic in the US. Great presidents and leaders wear masks, don’t attack science and scientists, like Dr. Fauci, and don’t risk the lives of innocents by holding superspreader political rallies.


  4. Kurt Last October 22, 2020 5:37 am Reply

    No matter how much death and unrest is directly caused by Mr. Trump – without any question the worst president in American history – Mr. Rosen is always ready with a boot lick for him. Trump derangement syndrome is a real thing for a lot of Americans, because Mr. Trump is a lying, racist, ignorant & incompetent coward, whose incoherence and failure in office has to date resulted in 220,000 dead Americans, and economic ruin. Those are really good reasons to become deranged.

    The very long list of Trump’s other crimes, corruption and malfeasance have already been listed in this paper, but Republicans just don’t care. Nothing Mr. Trump does is too grotesque or vile for them. The support for Trump is disgusting and un-American. Fortunately, it looks now like Mr. Trump will pull Republican control of the U.S. Senate over the electoral cliff with him. The more Republicans that lose office, the better. It’s unfortunate that the party in the entirety cannot be decimated in one election cycle, but there’s always 2022.

      Hawaii & the rest of the US will be shut down and isolated from the world well into 2021 thanks to Trump’s handling or should I say ” lack of handling” COVID19. He’s put all his eggs in waiting for a vaccine because he has no idea what to do to combat the virus. He won’t take the advice of the world’s most experienced infectious disease experts and instead listens to a radiologist. When you’re not very bright like Trump you discount the advice of true experts in search of someone who will tell you what you want to hear. This is why Trump will lose re-election in a big way regardless of help from Putin.

        So how has Trump failed with Covid? He closed off the borders from China in January against the wishes of WHO and more importantly, the Democratic Party. They called him Xenophobic and racist for doing so. In fact, Biden was still saying this in April. Fauci even came out and said he saved lives for doing this. The leading infectious disease experts, which ones? The main stream media they pick and choose? Listen to all of them before pointing fingers. Plus Fauci was also reported to saying masks won’t work early on. How would you combat the virus? Masks won’t combat it. Do you lock everyone away in their homes? Plus how is Covid Trump’s fault? Each state is responsible for how they handle the pandemic. Here are the top 10 states (starting from worst) for deaths per capita. New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Louisiana, Rhode Island, Mississippi, District of Columbia, Arizona and Illinois. And low and behold, 5 of the top 6 is Democrat run. Is it Trump’s fault for all of Cuomo’s mistakes?

    Trump supporters aren’t known for their ability to do some research and reason logically.
    Most polls got it right in 2016, they were within their statistical margin of error, predicting a Clinton national poll lead going into the election which she won by 2.1%. The predictions ranged from 6% for Trump to 6% for Clinton.
    Yes, although most polls were within their margin of error, they were off by 1 -2 percent widely thought to be caused by a last minute larger switch to Trump by the then much larger percentage of undecided voters.
    That’s not going to happen in 2020.
    The percentage of undecideds is down from 11% in 2016 to 3% in 2020. And Clinton only
    had an average 3.75% lead in all national polls going into the election, Biden has a 9.9% lead. The statistical margin of error is the same.
    In 2016 Trump was the new kid on the block, brash, attention grabbing, promising change. In 2020 Trump is still brash but all his lies and name calling have become really annoying and his promises turned out to be mostly snake oil. 2020 voters are onto him and he will lose.

    tRump is a LIAR and a SORE LOSER, and autocratic wannabe. Biden represents decency and a return to democracy. Democrats are far from perfect, but they are the better choice.

    Like Biden, I do NOT burn the flag (though I do NOT pledge allegiance to a piece of cloth which represents a country with a checkered history) , I DO NOT chant death to America, or kills babies through abortion and I have NOT declared war on the police.

    As someone who honors critical thinking, I may occasionally sit through the national anthem. Have you ever thought about the relationship of the USA to the rest of the world?

    I support a woman’s right to choose while in the first trimester of pregnancy. Do we really need unwanted children in the world? Are you and your republican buddies prepared to support them emotionally and financially and educationally so they can become better citizens? What in the world are you thinking?

    Let’s make a bet, shall we, James. Of those who vote on Kauai I will bet that 70% (all those who use critical thinking and do not stand to make lots of money from tRump policies) will support Biden.

    If I lose, I will eat crow and never criticize your missives again. If you lose, will you promise never to subject us to any more of your drivel?

      You’ll have to define what that is. It really sounds like you mean “anything that doesn’t agree with me”. Furthermore, ‘mainstream’ is a general norm, something you would then fall woefully out of – and let’s you play the ‘poor defenseless me’ role. No, the vile from that extreme is not worthy.

      LIE: there will be a vaccine available for all within a week or two.
      LIE: there were more people at my inauguration then ever seen before
      LIE: if we tale away all the illegal immigrant voters, I would have had a larger popular vote than Hillary
      LIE: Trump University will make you smart and rich like me.

      I submit the following links showing of the ways Donald Trump has changed our country. Included are actions, falsehoods, and outright lies over the past four years of his presidency. To quote the author: “Experts in authoritarianism advise keeping a list of things changing, subtly, around you, so you’ll remember.” – Amy Siskind

      I advise keeping these lists in mind when visiting the polls this election cycle.

    Really can’t understand why TGI felt the need to publish this…
    Kimo flouts “fake news”, but his whole editorial is ridden with lies and fallacies, be they intentional or just blissfully ignorant.
    One that jumps out, and can EASILY be researched and disproven, is where he says Australia nominated Trump for the Nobel Prize…! This is LAUGHABLE!! “Many countries” have NOT nominated Trump for anything!! A handful of [obviously politically biased] people nominated Trump. In the case of Australia, it was, in actuality, four Australian law professors, hardly the whole country.
    Almost everything in this piece is easily refutable and disproven.
    Nice try Kimo. I think most of us can recognize the desperate, last-ditch effort your propaganda and rhetoric signifies.

      Oh my, Rosen is stuffed full of delusional rantings of someone who’s deep in Qanon and other looney conspiracy websites.

      Trump is a disgrace. No president has ever spewed more provable lies – more than all other presidents combined – and that dubious record was achieved years ago. Nobody even listens to the guy any more – Trump’s like the crazy drunken lecherous uncle you pretend not to know. Thankfully, in another few weeks the orange disgrace will end up in the dustbin of history where he and his delusional followers belong.

      But let’s review Trump’s promises for those unsure about the facts: How about Repeal and Replace?? (4 years and nothing but hot air). Mexico paying for the wall? (Well, the check must still be in the mail because Trump robbed our military to pay for a few miles of fencing). How about deporting ‘millions’ of illegals? (Record numbers of immigrants crossing the borders again). How about all those ‘good-paying coal jobs’? (Biggest collapse in coal production in any 4 year period under Trump’s watch) How about getting tough with China? (We’re now running the biggest trade deficits ever and farmers/businesses have been decimated and hundreds of billions of taxpayer monies needed to bail them out). How about ‘restoring’ world respect? (North Korea made a fool out of Trump and our long-time allies literally laugh at his buffoonery). How about calling war dead ‘suckers and losers’? How about the $750 in taxes and steadfast refusal (despite his initial repeated promises) to release his taxes because he’s ‘under audit’ (but thanks to the NYT and honorable citizens we now know the scale of his grifting).

      But what did he accomplish? The laughably misnamed ‘middle class’ tax cuts where 84% went to the suffering 1%. Trump will be the first president to ever leave office with fewer people employed than created – this from the guy who said tfat-cat tax cust would jumpstart the economy and send it new heights. Reality is Obama created more jobs and more growth in his last four years than Trump – and Obama was cutting the deficit while Trump’s fat-cat tax cuts have caused the deficit to explode.

      As my pappy used to day ‘good riddance to bad rubbish’!

    You keep using “mainstream media” as a term. What exactly is that? Anything but Fox news, which has been declared by some sitting judges as entertainment, not news.

    Trump has done some good things for the US, and the media HAS reported it, you just don’t watch to find out about it, or are to blind too see it. The problem is that Trump has done so many ridiculous things during his time in office that they overshadow all his good deeds.

    Nice try, Kimo… present Trump as the “victim” in all of this! And echo his opinion regarding media! We’ve have seen how trump treats media members….trump says he protects citizen’s rights….as long as they agree with his BS! He is certainly a terrible president, but also a terrible leader, and a president that is no better than Richard Nixon. As far as burning flags, sitting through anthems goes, that is a horrible excuse to try to justify the murder of innocent citizens. As far as using the military to aid his photo op with a bible in front of a church…..c’mon! Even the military participants in that fiasco have since disavowed military force use! Killing babies? Yeah…your party has always grabbed what you think is the moral high ground…at least before the child is born! After that, your parties attitude is: you’re on your own, lady! Trump should have 4 years….in jail! He has lied to the voters literally thousands of this since he took the oath of his office. And, after all of the “free” headlines given to him while he during his campaign by the “main stream” media, he has the nerve to imply that they are enemies of the people. RIGHT! Anyone with some sort of ethical compass has seen through his facade. You ask for a hana hou performance….many of us say the “performance” is over…bye bye liar in chief. Remember, he was the one that lead the birther charge against Obama, even after that “lie” was discredited! And Trump continues his lies to this very day!

        10 Million families lost their homes during the Housing Crisis and the administration did nothing to help. Families and small businesses lost it all. No stimulus, no ban on foreclosures…nothing like you see now to help. Most people with government or corporate jobs felt nothing so I’m not surprised that those people don’t remember.

          No stimulus? No mortgage relief program? Where were you? Also, the economy after the housing issue (which started under a republican) started growing again under the following administration because of their programs. Your memory is highly selective.


          1. behappy October 26, 2020 9:54 am

            The lowest housing prices during this recession were in 2012, a full four years into the Obama/Biden administration. Apparently their programs didn’t work. In Sept 2010 approximately 120,000 homes were repossessed in a one-month period. For some reason I don’t remember citizens getting a stimulus check, a PPP for business, or any help from the government. In fact I remember people not being able to get loans at all because of the Obama/Biden banking regulations. People were desperate to keep their homes but lost them as well as their businesses. That’s what I remember!

The one thing Mr Rosen said that jumped out of all the half truths stated is Donald is no longer the leader of the free world. Thanks to him America’s role in the world is no longer leader but what in hell are the Americans doing electing a man like Trump? I would go as far as saying we are the laughing stock but this is no laughing matter. I fervently hope this national nightmare ends but having said that the president will not assure a peaceful transition in accordance with the election results.

    I couldnt agree more.. Whatever the media says, this is what alot of people go by. No one is thinking for themselves. Its clearly at an overwhelming rate. Trump is a business man and now everyone thinks they want a politician forgetting what politicians have historically been doing. Most news reporters won’t show any positive Trump supporters or
    Trump supporters period. The media is clearly controlling the mass populations ideas. Biden is pushing 80 yrs of age and it is obvious that he has dangerous health conditions and unreliable credentials. Trump is blunt, and talks like the general population,not so much like a politician, and politicians dont like that he can be bluntly honest and expose pertain interior information for people’s awareness. It’s obvious that the Democrats are pushing a idea to the media and the media is clearly delivering that message!
