Good morning all!
I’m sick as a dog and feel like crap on a cracker.
How’s your day going?
I’m on an immunosuppressant for my Lupus. And one of the things I am told to avoid – in addition to groups of people — is gardening. Apparently soil contains a cornucopia of bacteria and with a suppressed immune system, that puts me at risk.
So yesterday, some strong friends from church came over to help me clean out my landscaping. But I couldn’t just stand there and watch them work. I’m not wired that way. So occasionally, I started pulling weeds and digging in the dirt.
Guess what? They were right. Digging in the dirt does get you sick.
In a lot of ways, I’m like a child. Mom says, “Don’t touch the oven; it’s hot!” So I touch the oven to confirm that she’s right.
And my experiment to test that theory about the dangers of gardening while on an immunosuppressant was complete a success!
I’ve spent the day drinking Seltzer water like it’s going out of style and alternating between sweating bullets and shivering. It’s been loads of fun!
And I will never dig around in my garden again.
But my morning hasn’t been a total loss.
I just finished watching President Trump’s speech from last night’s rally in Harrisburg.
It was great!
Trump won the night when he said:
”A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom.”
Now, ordinarily, I hate when people say, “BOOM!”
But sometimes no other word suffices.
Forget all the news media articles about President Trump’s first one hundred days. If you want to get a good summary, just watch his speech from last night.
He chronicled everything.
Then after watching the rally, I wandered over to Breitbart and saw their write-up about the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Some Muslim comedian I’ve never heard of was the keynote entertainer.
And apparently he called Steve Bannon a Nazi and Jeff Sessions a racist. Then he joked that Putin was the leader of our country.
Who wrote his material? Rachel Maddow?
Stop and think about this. The comedian at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner said all the same things the “reputable journalists” have been saying in the news for months. But he said them for laughs.
Does anybody else see that as a scathing indictment of the so-called News Media?
What clearer evidence do you need that the Enslaved Press is a joke?
I mean, if you can’t distinguish between a so-called stand-up comedian and the reporting on CNN, what does that say about either of them?
Is it Islamophobic to say that Muslim comedian bombed at the #WHCD2017?

America’s trust in the news media is plummeting, but these guys won’t stop doubling down.
You may think I’m a dummy for testing the whole, “don’t dig in the dirt” theory. And you might be right.
But at least now that I’ve learned there were consequences, you can believe I won’t do it again. I learn from my mistakes.
The Enslaved Press, on the other hand, does not.
They will continue to ignore the rest of America and live in their hermetically-sealed bubble — quietly reassuring themselves that they aren’t fake news while reporting fake news.
These guys would touch a hot oven until they burned their hands off.
Meanwhile, President Trump took his case to the American people.

Yesterday’s rally was so huge, even CNN had to broadcast the entire speech live.
For years now, I have said that Republicans need to go around the news media – bypass them completely and go to the people. This was what Ronald Reagan did and it worked.
But Donald Trump doesn’t just go around the media. Not at all. Instead, he plows right over them.
Greg Gutfeld nailed it last night when he said that President Trump kicked the media’s rump.
If you haven’t seen Mr. Trump’s speech, here it is – courtesy of CNN.
How great is that?
Now, if you’ll excuse me. I have to go back to bed.
