Jeffrey Lord: Today Was The Launch Of A Reality Show Called ‘Beat The Press’

Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, political commentator Jeffrey Lord described President Trump’s press conference today as “the launch of a new reality show called ‘Beat The Press.'”

According to Mediaite, Lord – a former Reagan staffer – and Cooper were debating Trump’s now-infamous press conference in which he lashed out at the media numerous times.

One of the more memorable moments was when the President took aim at CNN, downgrading it from “fake news” status to “very fake news.”

Trump Changes CNN Status From "Fake News" To "Very Fake News"

“What you really saw today,” said Lord to Cooper, “was the launch of a new reality television show called ‘Beat The Press.'”

“It stars Donald Trump, the executive producer is Donald Trump and he’s even in for the set design – the east room of the White House.”

“He is going to make this one of the most popular rituals in America for the next four years when he stands up and goes mono e mono against what he believes – and his staff believes – are his adversaries in the media.”

See the full exchange between Jeffrey Lord and Anderson Cooper on Mediaite’s website here.

President Trump’s press conference, held earlier today, is – of course – causing quite a stir online.

Many are echoing Jeffrey Lord’s statements, suggesting Trump really had his way with the media today and that it was quite a spectacle.

    This will be the case unless the media changes and starts reporting straight facts. For instance, they need to stop creating sensationalized headlines like, “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence”, at then report in the middle of the story no wrongdoing occurred such as the New York Times did. There have been also cases of plain out falsehoods like the removal of the MLK bust from the Oval Office.

      HP is already putting out articles about how he had a meltdown and tried to make everything about “fake news”. They edited the footage to conveniently leave out that he was directly ASKED about fake news.

    Just shows how little sense of humor libs really have these days, this shit was straight hilarious. Like Trump, the greatest self-promoter of all time, doesn’t know how to talk to the press.

    The incredible thing about the press conference was that Trump tore the media a new one but in a jolly way like he was having the time of his life.

    Well you kind of have to beat the press when you’re a Republican. The press is too busy putting out fake stories about you so you have to fight back.

    If the media doesn’t want to be treated this way, why don’t they try some honest, fair and balanced reporting for a change instead of the constant foaming at the mouth screaming “TRUMP IS WORKING FOR PUTIN!!! HE IS LITERALLY HITLER!!! WHITE NATAIONLISTS!!!!!”

    And the rest of the media had no issue with Obama trashing Fox news and other Conservative media oulets, so why are they whining now? Oh, it’s because they are the ones getting treated like that. Well, you idiots made your bed, lie in it.

      The only Idiot is you and those like you. Fox use to be a very good news source until they were taken over by the extreme right ass holes! And since then have been given thier own opinions in stead of reporting the real facts not alternative facts! Do you even understand the constitution and the 1st amendment? Putin and those like him have always attract the news media to control them and then control the people! I am an independent voter and can not stand the extreme left or right. Also can not stand either party, both do not do what they should, but I know the Republicans of today are not the party of Lincoln! Also Obama did not attack Fox the same way that Trump attacks the media! America is about the rights of all the people(all the people, read the whole Constitution) and I will not listen to either the far right or left. Facts are facts and opinions are just that, opinions Period!! Alternative facts are lies Period! Get your facts right period and leave your opinion at the door, for an opinion without facts are just opinions bast on emotions not facts period!

    Anyone with common sense can see that the MSM are his adversaries. Only the steeple still believe what an outfit like CNN has to say.

    During the Bush years it infuriated me how the left felt privileged to say whatever hateful, illogical, and dishonest thing they wanted and Bush never said a thing. Many conservatives at that time liked how he was above it all, turned the other cheek, and believed that truth and honesty would ultimately prevail. What actually happened was that lies that go unchallenged became the truth (gee surprise), we got a full-blown socialist government in the 2006-2008 elections and it is only now that we are beginning to recover. I believe it is a balancing act because Trump has to retaliate without appearing like a thin-skinned snowflake like Obama did. I love how Trump is rattling their cages, but he always needs to ensure he is right because the moment he does it while the press is right could cause him to lose the moral high ground.

    Let’s be clear. These entities are not the “press.” They are the most deadly and dangerous enemy the constitution has ever been defended from. Jefferson told us banks and corporations are more dangerous than standing armies. Now we know that they kidnap, rape and kill our children in satanic rituals. The corporate media is their propaganda and procurement arm. They must be exposed by the real press, us.
