One More Award

Saturday….the cold winter winds and I will stay warm and snuggley……

There is a wealth of awards these….for  music, for poetry, for movies, for just about anything you can imagine and now we have one more to add to the mix…..our Fearless leader has devised one just for himself…..

The Golden Globes are Sunday, but President Trump has another awards ceremony he’s promoting, one scheduled for the very next day. Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to announce, in all caps, the “most dishonest & corrupt media awards of the year,” set for 5pm ET Monday. “Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!” he tweeted. USA Today notes the president has publicly mulled this idea before, noting on Twitter in late November that “we should have a contest” among the major TV networks and CNN (but minus his apparent favorite, Fox News) to see which outlet would receive “the fake news trophy.”

His attempt to shield Fox aside, a survey put out shortly after that tweet by Rasmussen, a conservative polling group, found 40% of voters wanted Fox to win this supposed prize—though CNN was the top pick among GOP voters, with 40% to Fox’s 24%. USA Today notes a December fundraising email from the Trump-Pence Make America Great Again Committee asked recipients to pick the “fake news story” they thought was “the worst” in 2017. “There’s no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda,” the email read.

I am sure that Trump will attach his name to the award for he does so love seeing his name up in lights…..no matter how moronic it is…..his supporters ought to flock to the award and be something special for the mindless……

That is it I am out for the day……chuq
