NYT and WaPo Coordinate Dual Strikes Against President as Trump Departs for Trip…

Always remember the basic rule that has been proven accurate 100% of the time:

♦ When the CIA wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with the Washington Post and ABC. (and vice-versa).
♦ When the State Dept. or FBI/DOJ wants to leak a damaging story they coordinate with CNN and the New York Times. (and vice-versa)

This consistent pattern has NEVER been broken.

There is also a particular transparency here, yet again, with regard to media timing and intent.  The Washington Post (3:03pm) and New York Times (3:00pm) are attempting to frame the anti-Trump ‘muh russia‘ narrative as he departs on his first overseas trip.

Dual benefits for antagonistic media and political opposition:

♦ Trump team is out of country and unable to defend administration on-camera, while frenzy ensues 24/7 in U.S corporate broadcast media, and ♦ Trump team becomes relentlessly questioned by traveling press corps abroad on domestic controversy, diminishing Trump international status and pushing the weak/damaged Trump image toward the host nation optic.

It’s how they roll.  Again, check out the timing:

(Story Link)

The New York Times article is the personification of a ‘nothingburger‘ and shows just how desperate Trump’s political opposition have become in their ridiculous efforts to build narratives:

WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey — reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing.

The White House document that contained Mr. Trump’s comments was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting. One official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion.  (more)

The funniest aspect of the New York Times framework is this part:

…”reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives.”…

No, actually Trump saying Comey was a “nut” reinforces the notion that FBI Director James Comey had become a distracting self-aggrandizing gnat whose personal political agenda was having actual consequences on the ability of his boss, President Trump, to deal with real issues surrounding geo-political national security.

Press secretary Sean Spicer does a good job with the following release:

President Trump and his team appear to be doing a good job on this nothingburger.  The best approach is always to use targeted deployment of the word “SO?”

Throughout this entry into the world of politics Donald Trump has effectively owned the downside: “Someone’s doing the raping Don”… etc.  “Yeah, it’s true, I think Comey was a nut – a silly dog chasing a non-existent invisible car – so?”…

Andrew Breitbart was a master of saying “yeah, so?”.

            Cernovich and Posobiec (and Alex Jones to some extent…so vulgar lately?) have kind of gone off the rails with their perceived self-importance. Cernovich sent out a survey to 800 temporary admin employees asking if they knew they were going to get edged out of a job next week – the main response was “how did you get my email”
            I would have been mad if he sent me that – after going through the OPM hack, I don’t want to be getting email from some guy I don’t know asking me about my job satisfaction?

    He is worse than a Nut Job a Sociopath & Narcissist and very dangerous as such. He should have been fired and brought on charges eons ago. His latest behavior is proof he is not only corrupt but very vain and narcissistic. Trump can now push his buttons without him being Director. Not something Comey ever anticipated….

    What the hell is a “person of interest?” A person of interest to WHAT CRIME SPECIFICALLY? And I just don’t mean generally speaking “collusion with he Russians,” which technically is not a crime. In other words, in what specific way was there collusion, i.e money, tampering with voting, what, what, what? Once someone answers that, then they can try to ties someone to a crime!

    Talking to Russians, investing in Russia, speaking for money, borrowing money, and all else are all legal activities, if they occurred!

    “Person of interest” probably means someone who they want to harass, entrap, demonize, and/or turn over every aspect of their life to try to find some unrelated charge because they sure as hell are not going to find “collusion.” Good thing Trump fired the nut job.

    Will someone please tell me what colluding with the Russians is AGAIN!!!!

    Folks the fear is palpable! This visit and agreements are about to shake up the ME and the world. The reception he is going to get in SA and Israel will be breathtaking. General al-Sissi, King Abdullah and the Saudi King have been waiting and hoping that this gift from the heavens would one day come. The last 8 years with Barry gave them a first class view of hell on Earth.

    President al-Sissi will call our Lion “Your Excellancy” throughout the visit. That isn’t him kissing the ring but showing the greatest admiration you can show another leader. Beyond the great possibility of peace between Palestinian and Israel, there is real hope of the formation of a NATO type structure between Egypt, Jordan, SA and the UAE. SA will be signing a contract to purchase $100 billion worth of military hardware with also a possibility of it reaching $300 billion after ten years.

But when I heard his testimony, ESPECIALLY the mildly nauseous remark, I slammed the book shut in my mind. Case closed, this is over. This guy is not a serious person. If I had PDJT’s gift, I would have said to myself this guy is a NUT JOB. I know I should take this seriously, but I can’t stop laughing about it. In true Trumpian style it is the perfect little jab that will never, ever go away. How do you like me now, Comey?

  38. Here’s the serious part. The fake-news cloud over Trump makes it difficult to make deals with foreign leaders. You have to worry about them buying into the BS (BBC is one of the worst). So, Trump has to waste time reassuring them they can deal with him and those deals will stick.
