You know what I love about Donald Trump?
He simply refuses to cave to media intimidation.
For years now, the news media has wielded a great deal of power over Republicans. And all they’ve had to do to gain that power is shame them into being afraid to stand up to the media narrative.
And then along came Donald Trump.
For more than two years, the media has tried its intimidation techniques on Mr. Trump.
Time after time, they’ve done their level best to shame him into issuing a retraction or apology.
And it has never ever worked.
Honestly, these guys do not know how to deal with a Republican who refuses to be cowed into submission.
For me, yesterday’s press conference at Trump Tower was a highlight of Mr. Trump’s presidency.
Try as they might to shame the President into burping out the media narrative about white supremacists under every rock being opposed by angelic fighters for truth, justice and the American way, Mr. Trump didn’t take the bait.
Let’s face it. He knows the media will never be satisfied with anything he says.
He told us as much on Monday.
Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied…truly bad people!

And this is exactly what other Republicans simply cannot comprehend.
Yes, the media will intimidate you and shame you into caving to their narrative.
But even after that, the media intimidation will never, ever stop.
So instead of jumping through the media’s hoops, Trump blew a hole in their narrative.
And that is exactly why they’re setting their hair on fire now.
They don’t really believe Donald Trump is a white supremacist and a Nazi sympathizer.
Not at all.
Instead, they’re angry because their threats to paint Trump as a white supremacist or Nazi sympathizer if he doesn’t toe the line weren’t enough to stop him from speaking the truth.
When you stand up to name-calling and over-the-top rhetoric, you win.
And when you refuse to let the media intimidate you, they lose.
Their only power comes from the ability to silence their opposition through intimidation and threats.
In his press conference yesterday, President Trump disarmed the media of their only weapon.
And that is why they’re so angry and upset.
Meanwhile, the usual quisling Republicans took to Twitter to try and show Mr. Trump the proper way to surrender to media intimidation.
No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.

There's no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so
— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) August 16, 2017
Yeah. I think we’ve zeroed in on why you two lost and Donald Trump won.
This is what Mitt Romney and John McCain view as nobly standing up to bigotry.
And I guess they both completely forgot what happened when someone claiming to stand up to bigotry and hate showed up at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia.
To any rational human being, this level of violence and destruction is easy to denounce.
But thanks to media intimidation, these feckless fools refuse to do so.
Antifa was bused in to Charlottesville armed with clubs, bricks, rocks, fireworks, pepper spray, bottles of urine – you name it.
So they could “stand up to hate?”
They were there to launch a beat-down.
And is it really that hard to denounce the violence on both sides? Is it really that controversial?
Spoiler alert: No, it isn’t.
And does Mitt Romney really believe that they are a “morally different universe” from the white supremacists?
But see, this is the narrative the news media wants to advance. They are trying to sanitize an anarchist movement and recast them as noble lovers of the American ideal — modern day Martin Luther Kings. If Martin Luther King wore brass knuckles and beat the living crap out of people.
President Trump refused to play along with their revisionist narrative.
All the media intimidation that came at him during that press conference couldn’t knock him off track.
I actually wondered how Barack Obama would have held up if the news media ever treated him with the same naked hostility they showed to President Trump yesterday.
Do you think he could have stood up to that kind of coordinated assault?
But President Trump did.
He refused to let the news media bludgeon him into submission.
And that, my friends, is why the media is melting down today.
