The fake news media continues to writhe in agony as President Trump’s supporters remain solidly in his corner.
So they’re doubling down ahead of his first State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress and a national television audience.
Trump will have about 60 minutes of prime time which will allow him to bypass the filtered news from fake news outlets like the Los Angeles Times.
In the Times’ fantasy world, the president and his party faces the prospect of losing control of the House and perhaps the Senate in the midterm election.
Leftists and white elites will tune in to hate-watch President Trump, though the president’s fans are usually more likely to watch such speeches than are opponents.
Only about 4 in 10 of America’s white elites approve of President Trump’s performance in office, numerous polls have shown. These are the same polls that predicted Hillary Clinton would be president now.
The white elites continue the fake news narrative surrounding the special counsel’s investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russia to win the election and whether Trump, as president, has sought to impede the inquiry.
Immigration will be a prominent topic. The President will promote the legislative deal he proposed last week to address the plight of young beneficiaries of the Obama-era program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, that he ordered to be ended in March.
He proposed to protect from deportation the so-called Dreamers, who came to the country illegally as children, and to provide them a path to citizenship. But Trump also wants to increase border security spending, build his proposed southern border wall and cut legal immigration. A win-win for everyone.
