SHEP UNLEASHES: Shreds Trump Over Google Criticism, ‘What Is He Talking About?!’ — Did He Go Too Far?

Published

on

“What is he talking about?” the exasperated host of Fox News’ eponymously titled 3 p.m. weekday slot, “Shepard Smith Reporting,” rhetorically asked on Tuesday afternoon.

Smith was responding to President Donald Trump’s earlier tweet and live remarks in which the chief executive expressed deep concerns about Google, Facebook and Twitter’s alleged bias against him, against conservative news outlets, and against conservatives in general.

“I think Google is really taking advantage of a lot of people,” the president told a pool spray in the Oval Office on Tuesday. “I think that’s a very serious thing and it’s a very serious charge,” he added.

The president advised Big Tech companies to proceed carefully, saying, “I think that Google and Twitter and Facebook, they’re really treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful. It’s not fair to large portions of the population.”

Smith, to put it lightly, did not agree.

He called the president’s contentions of Big Tech’s alleged bias against conservatives “not a thing.”

Further, he contended that Trump’s statement that Google, Facebook, and Twitter “can’t do that to people” and that they were “treading on troubled territory” was meaningless.

He then went to the White House correspondent for Fox News, John Roberts, who was reporting from just outside the White House. Roberts described the president’s reaction as “venting” in response to disliking the coverage he has been seeing lately.

“What he doesn’t like is the news,” Smith declared. “It’s not the people who are delivering it or the platforms on which they receive it. It seems to be the news itself,” Smith added. “Because around there, the news is not good. Except the fake news. The fake news seems to be pretty good for him.”

“The real news seems to be unpleasant,” he added.

“It didn’t make sense then and it wouldn’t make sense now,” Smith also said in recapping the president’s words at the end of the segment — but at that point he began losing track of his notes.

If social media responses to Smith’s pronouncement are any indication, Smith himself may be “treading on troubled territory” as well.

Trump’s Had It! Warns The Media And Staff He’s LEAVING

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump warned the White House press corps that he and his administration officials would leave press availabilities if they felt they were being disrespected, in a Friday appearance in the Oval Office.

Trump’s answer came shortly after his administration lost an effort to continue barring CNN reporter Jim Acosta from the White House. Judge Timothy J. Kelly issued an injunction Friday morning ordering the White House to reinstate Acosta’s credentials, saying his Fifth Amendment right to due process was violated. Acosta’s credentials were then re-instated Friday morning.

The White House revoked Acosta’s credentials last week claiming that he laid hands on an intern after refusing to surrender the microphone during a press conference.

Trump warned that despite the loss the White House is “writing up the rules and regulations” and “if they don’t listen to the rules and regulations we are going to be back in court and win.”

The president continued, “we always have the option of just leaving. If we feel that things aren’t being treated properly or people being treated properly, we always have the right to leave. I have instructed my people, when they are not being treated properly, you have the right to leave any time that you want.”

Trump Just Made Surprise Move Awarding US Senator With Medal Of Freedom

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

Republican Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch received the medal of freedom from President Donald Trump Friday afternoon, as he is the longest-serving member of the U.S. Senate.

At a medal of freedom ceremony at the White House, Hatch, the current Senate pro tempore, received praise from Trump for his work in rewriting the tax code and for helping “hard-working Americans get through life.” Trump also brought up Hatch’s work “reshaping” federal courts as well as protecting religious freedom, according to Deseret News.

Hatch announced in January 2018 he was retiring, after serving four decades in the Senate.

There were six other people who received the medal of freedom in Friday’s ceremony, including former Minnesota Supreme Court judge and NFL star Alan Page, Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboys quarterbackRoger Staubach, American singer and actor Elvis Presley, departed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, former MLB star Babe Ruth and American philanthropist Miriam Adelson.

CBS News has more on the story:

President Trump awarded seven people the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Friday.

Miriam Adelson is among seven people Mr. Trump is recognizing with the medal, the highest honor America can give a civilian. She is a doctor, philanthropist and humanitarian, but is perhaps best known as the wife of Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino magnate considered one of the nation’s most powerful Republican donors.

The other recipients include retiring Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, one of the longest-serving senators in U.S. history; Alan Page, who was elected to the Minnesota Supreme Court after an NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears; and Roger Staubach, the Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboys quarterback and staunch Republican.

“He liked me right from the beginning and therefore I like him,” Mr. Trump said about Hatch during the ceremony.

Posthumous honors are being granted to Elvis Presley, Babe Ruth and Antonin Scalia, the conservative Supreme Court justice. Mr. Trump has often praised Scalia and has made good on his promise to nominate judges “very much in the mold of Justice Scalia” in the Supreme Court. The admiration was apparently mutual, according to Scalia’s literary collaborator Bryan Garner. According to Garner’s memoir, Scalia “thought it was most refreshing to have a candidate who was pretty much unfiltered and utterly frank.”

Mr. Trump noted that Scalia and his wife, who was accepting the medal on her husband’s behalf, had nine children. “You were very busy. Wow. I always knew I liked him,” Mr. Trump said.

Notable guests at the event included several members of the Supreme Court, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a close friend of Scalia’s, who is recovering from a fall last week. Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, Elena Kagan, and John Roberts were also in attendance. Mr. Trump also noted the presence of Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who represents Page’s home state.

The Adelsons gave Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign a $30 million boost in the final months of the 2016 race. The couple followed up this election cycle by donating $100 million to the Republican Party for last week’s midterms.

Miriam Adelson, 73, is an Israeli-born, naturalized U.S. citizen who earned a medical degree from Tel Aviv University and founded a pair of drug abuse treatment and research centers in Las Vegas and Tel Aviv. She and her husband own the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Israel Hayom newspapers, which often stake out pro-Trump positions.

The Adelsons are also avid supporters of Israel. Their passion for strengthening the country, along with Israel-U.S. relations, has helped keep such policy priorities as relocating the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem front and center in the Republican Party and the Trump administration.

Mr. Trump moved the embassy in May, and Sheldon Adelson, who had offered to personally fund the move, was seated in the front row for the ceremony.

Robert Weissman, president of public interest group Public Citizen, said it was difficult to believe the decision to recognize Miriam Adelson was based on merit.

“It’s emblematic of the corrupt and transactional presidency of Donald Trump, and it is a shame, but not a surprise, that he is corroding and corrupting a civic treasure, an honor like the Medal of Freedom,” Weissman said.

Lindsay Walters, a White House spokeswoman, said Mr. Trump used the process that previous administrations have followed to settle on his group of honorees. The process was coordinated by the office of the staff secretary, taking into account recommendations from the public, relevant presidential advisory bodies, the Cabinet and senior White House staff, she said.

The award is given to individuals “who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”

Miriam Adelson said she is “deeply humbled and moved by this exceptional honor.”

“Liberty is at the heart of my decades of work against substance abuse. Drug dependency is enslavement, for the user and his or her family and society, and treatment an emancipation,” she said in a statement released Thursday by Las Vegas Sands Corp., a company owned by Sheldon Adelson that operates hotels and casinos around the world. “Together, my husband, Sheldon, and I have dedicated our lives to freedom: to a free market that benefits the greater good and to philanthropic endeavors that succor those suffering from poverty and disease.”

E. Fletcher McClellan, a political science professor at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania, said there are no limitations on who can receive the presidential honor.

“He has total discretion as to who and when and how,” said McClellan, who has studied the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Christopher Devine, a politics professor at the University of Dayton, questioned Miriam Adelson’s impact on American culture or national interests as compared to past recipients like Oprah Winfrey or Bruce Springsteen. Both Winfrey and Springsteen received medals from President Barack Obama, whom they supported politically. Obama also awarded the medal to his vice president, Joe Biden, in 2017.

“This is what leaves many people wondering whether President Trump singled her out for an award as something of a thank-you for her and husband Sheldon Adelson’s very substantial donations to Republican candidates and causes over the years, including ones in support of Trump’s election in 2016,” said Devine, who wrote a book about the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Devine said that while Miriam Adelson isn’t the first campaign contributor to receive a Presidential Medal of Freedom, the size of her campaign contributions sets her apart from the rest.
