Accuracy in Media

Former President Barack Obama wrote a letter for his successor, Donald Trump, and CNN felt it was important to point out that Trump isn’t following much of the advice that Obama gave him. Chris Cillizza concluded, after going step by step through the short letter:

In short, Trump has not closely heeded Obama’s advice. At all. Which Obama almost certainly knew would be the case when he wrote his letter to Trump.

Missing from the supposed CNN “analysis” piece by Chris Cillizza is the fact that Obama’s leadership of the Democratic Party has decimated the party in eight years, losing governorships and state legislatures due to Obama’s focus on identity politics. So why would Trump follow Obama, when Trump’s campaign was built on undoing Obama’s legacy?

    Trump’s IQ – 156; Obama’s IQ: 102 Obama has never released his high school and college records, why? Is it true he listed himself as a “foreign country student” when applying for financial help? Why did he apply for so many different social security cards when he moved while a young man? Someone knows and can enlighten us on these matters.

    Trump was elected by those Fed up with Obama’s policy.
    Why would he take O’s advice re policy or political objective.
    This isn’t even fake news. It’s non-news!

    They, (grandma and he), didnt find the guy who died without ever using his account, in HI and grandma’s district, and had no heirs, right away.

    Meantime, he tried and apparently succeeded, staying one step ahead of the law.

    I like your comparrison of the IQs!
    Makes sense!

    Typical CNN reporting another fake news story. The entire world knows that the 2016 election was a referendum against the failed abysmal anti-American policies of President Obama and the Democrats. Why doesn’t Chris Cillizza, and the rest of CNN know that? The fact is they do but they simply don’t want to admit that and twist the truth and to continue their witchhunt against President Trump, his family and his supporters. CNN has no relevance, credibility, ethics, honesty and integrity. That’s why their ratings are plummeting and literally in the toilet.

    Why would President Trump follow a failed Presidents advice?
