    Default Reporters surprised by Trump's transparency

    The Trump Bill of Love...
    Hope you all got to witness the televised meeting at the White House? It was a first in politics and the most amazing transparency ever witnessed by the public and even the fake news cant believe seeing it... It was showing how Trump brought the two parties together live on TV and discussing the important subject of immigration... remember what we had before and how the news media were calling it?

    Saying it and not meaning it... Recall the infamous Barry Soetoro quote: "Let me say it as simply as I can, transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this Presidency."


    Interesting how Obama gets a pass while the Fake News focuses on every minutae.

    I posted this yesterday on the Wolf thread and Trump is not stupid and is
    trying to be transparent and play to his strength doing deals. He was not
    elected to be another politician but to reset the American economy , build
    a wall , Obama care , drain the swamp and expose the deep state among
    other campaign pledges.

    He has started well with tax and the economy but may have trouble with
    the rest , he has certainly pleased the mil ind complex and his foreign
    policy is looking almost as bad as Clinton neo -con/dems , though he did
    well in Syria by not invading as Hillary would have done and reigned in
    the CIA a bit. North Korea , Iran , China and Russia relations will be
    interesting this year.

    The Fakestream media and dems are still after him as much as ever
    CNN , MSNBC , The View are all saying that Trump did not know what
    was happening even in the live debate he let them film yesterday. CIANN
    asset Anderson Cooper not impressed...

    Wolf is everywhere on the media over the past few weeks and I could post many
    vids but they are all the same and driving the mainstream media , Dems and
    Trump haters to ask to 25/45 ,Trump has dementia , Alzteimers's etc... flinging
    mud hoping it will stick. This is total BS and today he led a bipartisan meeting
    at the WH and let the press in for part of it and Trump looks as bright as a button
    and looking for compromise.

    Now whether this goes through or not its obvious Trump is not stupid.He trolls the
    press & he may not be as intelligent as he claims and there was a funny sound bite
    by Lindsey Graham on the View a couple days ago. But you cannot take away his
    achievement to get to the WH and he may speak in simplistic terms which the
    press now laugh at even though he has been around for decades so they knew
    what to expect when he spoke. They have tried Russia , financial dealings and
    now unfit mentally, to impeach him since he was elected. US politics is brutal
    compared to the UK certainly over the past couple years I have been following
    closely. Though it has always been like it from what I can tell and political
    commentators have been saying.....

    What does this thread title exactly mean?
    Trump surprised fake news with transparency?
    I visited the thread intending to make it just a little clearer (I sometimes do that with thread titles, to assist everyone) — but came up short here.

    I also didn't fully understand your first post. Can you kindly take a moment to make everything a little more transparent?

    Sorry Bill if it was confusing. The news media, ie reporters seem somewhat aghast by the transparency Trump has recently shown, it's the reporters like CNN's Jim Acosta and the reputation of being labeled fake news that are so surprised by it. Hope that helps? PS I should post that video of Trump's meeting to explain why "The Bill of Love" meaning is what Trump labeled it.

    From Bill: Thanks! I've changed the title to something that I think may be just a little clearer to anyone reading the thread for the first time.

    Trump started the meeting with the intent of having the press i.e. cameras in the room for a brief photo op. In front of the cameras, he blossomed, and decided he didn't want to waste the opportunity of having an audience where he could grandstand and demonstrate his negotiating skills, so he insisted that they stay in the room. He did a pretty good job at it, which had the MSM reeling: they were effusive in their praise for this new approach of transparency and actual negotiation. So, when Trump does something they like, they are quick to give him credit. They are not, apparently, hide bound in their opinion of him. As opposed, of course, to the right wing attacks on Obama, who could never do anything right, as far as the Republicans and the right wing media were concerned (Recall McConnell's vow to spend the rest of Obama's term being dedicated to ending his presdency.)

    Unfortunately, the open transparency and bi-partisan approach lasted not quite 24 hours. He was on a roll, and he went with his gut - this time "feeling the love". He had obviously misspoken about what was possible - and had to be reminded, right at the table, about the import of his new immigration stance. After Trump had been "reminded", overnight, of his vow to build the wall by his Republican backers, he was, today, back to being mired in the "same old same old". It was a nice flash of cross-the-aisle cooperation, and a glimpse of what might be possible without the entrenched partisan positions, but it was not sustainable once the cameras were turned off.

    Siiighhhhh ...

    A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

    Donald Trump is always five steps ahead of everyone especially me.I used to second guess him on issue after issue,I stopped doing that since i wound up being wrong
    every time. The hard left has had three major ops to take down the Trump presidency and have Pence replace him.The first was hes mean and nasty to women featuring
    the Bush interview.We see how badly that failed.The second is winding down now that Trump colluded with Putin.Designed,IMHO,to cover up the DNC/ Hillary/Huma killing of
    Seth Rich.There is no evidence, never was and never will be. The current op, Amendment 25, "Trumps insane and has to be taken out by his own party and impeached" or whatever
    will also fail.We see how easily the Donald destroyed that one yesterday. How insane can he be to unite both parties as he did yesterday? As I said before he's five steps ahead
    of us all.

    Opinions vary. I thought he did a stellar job.Was the msm going to nit pick him and point out any glaring or not so glaring mistakes? Of course.It's all they have.
    On the other hand was our President going to shoot form the hip and not quite at the politician level yet still acting as a partial businessman and most likely make a
    mistake or two? Sure,it's who he is.Real,seldom phony and firing from the hip.He still wants a wall,still wants only people who can help the country to come in and only then
    legally,welfare for anyone to be timed not forever and on and on with what he promised as a candidate. I'll take his style over those who would simply use our hard earned to buy votes any day.

    Few understand Trump.He is more than willing to take half a loaf if that's all he can get. Anderson mockingbird basically accuses Trump of being on all sides all the time.
    He simply does not get it and has no desire to get it. Only go after Trump 24/7 since he is a hardcore Socialist and as previously stated most likely a CIA project mockingbird employ.
    Few get that Trump will take what he gets this time and <b>come back for more next time</b> it's how he plays the game. And if you look at his record it's worked for decades.
    As for Ann Coulter she is adamantly focused on Hard right issues and seldom compromises.Perhaps it's because historically when Republicans compromise with the left they generally get the
    shorter end of the deal. She is not used to Trump yet.As for Kevin McCarthy I lost all respect for him when he passed on being speaker because he didn't want to give up his gal pal also in the House. Maybe I'm too harsh.
    Trump gets the majority of what he wants. It just might not happen all in one bargaining session.
