      Trump rages at CNN as the 'opposition party' for reporting on TSA sickout as government shutdown continues

      .

      American citizens are not taking this partial shutdown with good grace. Many (most?) see it as a bully trying to get his way at their expense; so they resist!

      Just as the new Congress is sworn in, with democrats in control of the House, Trump decides to continue his massive temper tantrum to get millions of tax payer money to fund a wall he promised boastfully that Mexico would pay for. He partially shuts down the government, and threatens to use his "emergency powers" to get the wall if Congress won't give it to him, leaving over 800,000 Federal workers hung out to dry by expecting them to work for no pay. Surprise: many balk, and CNN reports on the resulting TSA "sick out."

      Now he is carrying on hysterically and calling CNN the "opposition party" because they have reported on actual events caused by Trump's tyrannical behavior and verbal threats. Hundreds of TSA Screeners are calling in sick rather than to work for nothing.

      It is long past time to do something about this juvenile man at the helm. What is next?


      President Donald Trump on Saturday lashed out at CNN for reporting that hundreds of TSA screeners are calling in sick rather than work without payduring the government shutdown.

      “The mass call outs could inevitably mean air travel is less secure, especially as the shutdown enters its second week with no clear end to the political stalemate in sight,” CNN reported.

      “Great tweet today by [DHS spokesperson] Tyler Q. Houlton on the fake news being put out by CNN, a proud member of the opposition party,” Trump claimed.

      “TSA is doing a great job!” he added.

      Despite the president’s claim, Houlton has not tweeted yet on Saturday.

      But on Friday, Houlton attacked CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins for reporting on the sickout.

      More from @CNN. Security operations at airports have not been impacted by a non-existent sick out. CNN has the cell numbers of multiple @TSA public affairs professionals, but rather than validate statistics, they grossly misrepresented them. https://twitter.com/kaitlancollins/status/1081301319787466759 …

      .

      CNN has pushed back against Mr. Trump by directly addressing many of his accusations on Twitter.

      “Make no mistake, Mr. President, CNN does not lie. We report the news. And we report when people in power tell lies. CNN stands by our reporting and our reporters. CNN tweeted.

          Haha,, this coincides nicely with Ray's timely post regarding the pilots who are gathering steam to stop flying should the TSA stop checking passengers.

          I certainly wouldn't be flying during this shutdown.

              From the start of his term of office, if a news media source did not support his obvious lies (and Kellyanne Conway’s “alternative facts”), Trump has labeled them “fake news.” I think half of Trump is Adolph Hitler/Joseph Goebbles “big lie” propagandist, and the other half is psychotic narcissist who believes his own, self-aggrandizing delusions. He really thinks he can invent and dictate whatever reality the news media should report and his loyal subjects should believe.

                  I think so too.

                      He has lost what little bit of sanity that he once had. He lived for 70 years, with everyone kissing his ass and sucking up to him, because they were under the false impression, he was something better than some rich twit with a bought and paid for education. I would be surprised if he's ever, in all his years, read a book. It has been said by folks who would know, that he could have stuck his trust fund in the bank, and lived off of it and have more money than he has with 50 years of lying, cheating and screwing people over for the pure joy of it.


                      He is facing friction, like he has never seen. I don't think it's nearly enough. Maybe this is his karma for all the crap he's pulled om people, but we should not be expected to go down with him.
