The Unhinged Media’s Coverage of President Trump

One of the really astonishing things that President Trump can do on an almost daily basis is to make the mainstream media come absolutely unhinged. All it takes from The Donald is a tweet about something on his mind. They go NUTS! It is like a kid dragging a stick along a fence while the dog on the other side just barks his head off.

Only when you click through do you discover that there is no news here whatsoever: The US votes against this meaningless, nonbinding UN gambit every year because the US has this thing called the First Amendment. President Obama’s appointees also opposed the resolution………
