Nearly a month after the election that shook the establishment it should be apparent by now that the media has no intentions of ratcheting down their war on Donald Trump. The President-elect has been greeted by an intensifying torrent of bile intended to delegitimize him before he is sworn into office that has been spewed by the discredited presstitutes who are still carrying the flag for Hillary.
Trump has been harangued incessantly, his appointees are being denounced as racists and white nationalists, his saving of American jobs mocked and derided and a post-election effort by Clinton and her allies to recount three Rust Belt states that Trump won has been given a legitimacy that it doesn’t deserve. Now, the howling has begun over a congratulatory telephone call received by Trump by Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen on Friday.
Nearly immediately the media began squealing like stuck pigs over how the Donald would dare to engage in such a provocation against China. This is more than a bit ironic in that these are the same voices that have spent months railing against Trump as a puppet of Russian leader Vladimir Putin yet they are rallying to the defense of a human rights abusing totalitarian state that is among the most repressive on the planet.
The New York Times is just fit to be tied that “Trump Speaks With Taiwan’s Leader, an Affront to China”:
President-elect Donald J. Trump spoke by telephone with Taiwan’s president on Friday, a striking break with nearly four decades of diplomatic practice that could precipitate a major rift with China even before Mr. Trump takes office.
Mr. Trump’s office said he had spoken with the Taiwanese president, Tsai Ing-wen, “who offered her congratulations.” He is believed to be the first president or president-elect who has spoken to a Taiwanese leader since at least 1979, when the United States severed diplomatic ties with Taiwan as part of its recognition of the People’s Republic of China.
In the statement, Mr. Trump’s office said the two leaders had noted “the close economic, political, and security ties” between Taiwan and the United States. Mr. Trump, it said, “also congratulated President Tsai on becoming President of Taiwan earlier this year.”
Mr. Trump’s motives in taking the call, which lasted more than 10 minutes, were not clear.
The president-elect has shown little heed for the nuances of international diplomacy, holding a series of unscripted phone calls to foreign leaders that have roiled sensitive relationships with Britain, India and Pakistan. On Thursday, the White House urged Mr. Trump to use experts from the State Department to prepare him for these exchanges.
The White House was not told about Mr. Trump’s call until after it happened, according to a senior administration official. But afterward, the Chinese government contacted the White House to discuss the matter.
Hillary pet media was unified in their contempt for Trump. Politico wailed “Bull in a China shop: Trump risks diplomatic blowup in Asia”, the Guardian yelped “Trump’s phone call with Taiwan president risks China’s wrath”, the Huffington Post crowed “China Lodges Protest After Trump Call With Taiwan President” and USA Today chirped “China: Trump-Taiwan president call was ‘small trick’”.
A sample from the Twitterverse:
Trump however was quick to defend himself:
As many who have underestimated Trump since last he entered the race, proceeded to eat the establishment Republican dream field of 16 candidates for breakfast and then snuff out the dreams of Queen Hillary should have learned, there is nothing that the President-elect can’t turn to his advantage.
Maybe Trump is crazy like a fox. With the Democrats and their media monkeys continually trying to paint Trump as a Kremlin puppet perhaps now he can turn the tables on the “fake news” minions and point the finger at them for coddling a totalitarian, human rights abusing state like China.
This should get entertaining as the shoe will be on the other foot for the China sucklers and one gets the feeling that the majority of Americans don’t hold the “people’s republic” in as high esteem as the media does, especially since they have been on the receiving end of the offshoring frenzy that has helped to build foreigners into economic powerhouses while decimating the domestic job market.
