Media Advance New Narrative: “Mean Trump” With Phone Call Leaker in White House…

The latest Mostly Swamp Media (MSM) talking point is rather funny.   Keeping up with the continuing technique of ‘media reports on media reports‘, today the preferred undermining narrative is to sell a tale of White House leakers.

The Associated Press (AP) is transparently still upset about their first-question White House press decorum being violated by the vulgarian Spice; and on the heels of the deplorable decision to allow common-folk in fly-over country to Skype in questions to the daily press briefing (which began today), the AP publishes an account of bad hombre’ Trump talking to the magnanimous defender of all things liberty, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, with the following disclaimer:

[…]  A person with access to the official transcript of the phone call provided only that portion of the conversation to The Associated Press. The person gave it on condition of anonymity because the administration did not make the details of the call public. (link)

How do we know it’s a narrative construct?  That’s where it gets a little funny.

Seven minutes later the Washington Post comes out with an almost identical outline: bad hombre’ Trump is grumpy with “America’s staunchest ally” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull of Australia:

[…]  President Trump blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over a refu­gee agreement and boasted about the magnitude of his electoral college win, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the Saturday exchange. (link)

Later in the WaPo outline they also reference the phone call with Nieto. Seven minutes between both publications.   Odds of independent publication without discussion and coordination between the AP and WaPo White House correspondents, approximately 01:infinity.

 

President Trump is such a bad, bad man – swear.

::yawn::

It must be time for another misspelled tweet.

“Complicated”? Yes.

Transparent? Brutally.

      The MSM is attempting to derail the Trump administration and especially President on his first days in Office. They are attempting to change the narrative to put President Trump on the defensive, more so now, because President Trump is moving at break-neck speed in his first actions as president and the media can’t keep up. They want to harp and settle for a week or two on some inconsequential issue so as to make them, President Trump and others in his administration, explain themselves.
      But President Trump is not letting them!

      They put out fake news knowing that it is fake. It is the last resort for them, because they see the American people don’t pay attention to them anymore and they desperately need to feel relevant.

      As for Drudge, he often posts headlines to showcase how the Left has gone crazy, and how they continue to find new ways to show us that they HAVE gone crazy, but their loudness with all their fakery is not tracking with the American people.

        Desperately throwing one outlandish thing after another at the wall, hoping the very outlandishness of it will rise above the utter disdain and contempt the American people have for the dying rot of an establishment media, that is well past its sell by date.

        Their desperation is dangerous, as they embolden themselves with their ever increasing sedition.

        It is for nothing, for it also indicates they know, it is over for them. As it should be for any who stoop this low.

        Thank God for Drudge, Andrew Breitbart, and all who they have inspired and emboldened.
        And, Thank God for President Trump, he is like no other.

    Before I start I must quote the AP article first:

    “…according to an excerpt of a transcript of the conversation obtained by The Associated Press…”

    And:

    “…..It also did not contain Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s response. Mexico denies that Trump’s remarks were threatening.”

    Furthermore:

    “A person with access to the official transcript of the phone call provided only that portion of the conversation to The Associated Press. The person gave it on condition of anonymity because the administration did not make the details of the call public.

    The Mexican website Aristegui Noticias on Tuesday published a similar account of the phone call, based on the reporting of journalist Dolia Estevez. The report described Trump as humiliating Pena Nieto in a confrontational conversation.

    Mexico’s foreign relations department said the report was “based on absolute falsehoods.””

    NOW THEN:

    FIRST: There is no mention of the excerpt coming from the White House AT ALL. The closest they come is when they CLEVERLY use the word “administration”, and that could be Mexico’s, which is the way this is leaning based on the people they actually quoted by name in the article.

    SECOND: Ask the AP to prove that the “excerpt of the transcript” is genuine and from the White House then watch for squirming. I guarantee that the only way they would even think it is genuine is because one of their reporters says it is – period.

    THIRD: Say the transcript is indeed genuine. Say the leak is not from Mexico (a really far stretch). Then some one on our side was really stupid because you can count on one hand the people with access to those transcripts. It is so improbable that it borders on the impossible. And you can take that to the bank.

    If the “translator” in Mexico gave it to the AP then that’s not a White House “leak”. Neither are the two Twitter accounts posted above. Those are bogus as well. The “Borg” meme on the one says it all for me.

    My educated guess is that this is the AP on a Fake News trajectory based on Mexican “leaks”. The Mexican News website quoted above is STILL running with the story as a headline as I write this:

      Or, maybe the “transcript” that somebody had access to was a trap to catch a leaker. And maybe to embarrass the gullible media, too.

      They have made their own beds, now must lie in them. I don’t believe ANYTHING negative that the mainstream media write about President Trump, even if it may be true.

      It’s entirely possible that they’re getting all this bogus information from those “rogue government” sites which claim, without any evidence, to be comprised of people working within the the government. Do reporters do any fact checking at all? Do they confirm the information with other sources?

      If they don’t name the source, then I give it no credence whatsoever because we have no idea whether the anti-Trump media is just “making things up,” as Sarah Palin once said. They hate this president so much that it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that they would make things up, just to damage him.

      Supposedly Trump used the phrase “bad hombres” in this call with Nieto. That’s too clever by half and is a tell that tells me it’s all entirely BS.

    Here is a recording of the Australia PM directly responding to questions about the phone call with Trump. Listening ‘between the lines’ Trump was Trump in that he’s not a “push-over” regarding deals. As per…the interaction was cordial and ended cordial, the agreement moves ahead, the alliance remains strong, and towards the interview’s finale he expresses respect for Trump.
    What WaPo wrote was deceptive and greatly over-exaggerated.

    Trump, Bannon, I think are strategists. I would not be surprised if the leak were intentional.

    They know the story will be published by MSM. It portrays Obama as not having protected US interests – a message if he seeks to be outspoken? They know neither Mexico nor Australia would verify the story (whether it occurred…hmmm, hanging up the phone – rude – is not a president that walks holding the hand of a British PM. And it sends a message to world leaders.

    The MSM plays the cards they know well, Trump changes the deck? Oh yeah, I forgot – McCain issues press release that he calls Australia to apologize. Lol. Good for future reference.

    There has to be a huge learning curve, and I suspect the president is bigly into it.

    Sundance: I have just heard Shep Smith of Fox News blathering about Australian “refugees”. Let’s get this straight. These people were migrants, illegally trying to enter Australia. The Australian military apprehends them at sea, they are then taken offshore. Turnbull is trying to get rid of an ongoing political problem and hoist it on the U.S.

    The Australian military intercepts most migrant boats and sends them back to where they came from, typically Indonesia.

    Migrants who do reach Australian territory by sea are barred from ever settling in the country. Instead, they are sent to Australian-run detention camps on the Pacific island of Nauru and Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island while their asylum claims are reviewed, a process that takes a year on average. If they are deemed genuine refugees, and around 90 percent are, they are given refugee status on the islands, or in a few cases, Cambodia.

    Australian leaders say the country’s tough approach deters dangerous sea crossings and thus ends up saving lives. http://ontd-political.livejournal.com/11447403.html
