The ways in which President Donald Trump has been criticized are unprecedented in American history.
Rising to power from outside of the Washington Swamp was Trump’s first sin in the eyes of many DC fat cats. This CEO-in-Chief has wasn’t elected to play their game, and it shows both in Trump’s economic effectiveness and in the opposition that he’s face.
Simply put: The President is a threat to the Beltway’s cozy career politicians.
That fact, when amplified by the existence of “the resistance”, has somehow given the mainstream media carte blanche to speculate wildly about this President.
Take the latest from Morning Joe, for instance.
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski agreed Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “sharp as a tack” while President Trump’s mental capacity has “completely changed.”
The co-hosts discussed the ongoing feud between Pelosi, D-Calif., and Trump, which erupted this week after Pelosi accused Trump of engaging in a “cover-up” and the president cut short a meeting on infrastructure with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.Advertisement - story continues below
Scarborough said he’s known Pelosi for 25 years and she’s “tougher today than she was” back then and the difference between the two is “not even close.”
The footage was pure media hysteria.

President Trump has long suffered from the uninformed and uneducated opinions on non-doctors in the mainstream media, but with the focus suddenly on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s linguistic acuity, these attacks have been ramped up significantly.
