Apparently he plans to give out awards, to the most dishonest and corrupt of the news media outlets, that pedal FAKE NEWS!

What are the odds that CNN gets the top award?

Look out Oscar, Trump is coming!

This is one of the betters assessments of this latest tweet storm


Quote:
CNN's Brian Stelter said if President Trump were the leader of another country such as Germany or China, people would say his tweets were "messages from a person who is not well."

During an appearance on CNN, Stelter said some of the tweets Trump sent out Tuesday were "deeply disturbing."

He said when Trump was inaugurated last January, some people started to raise concerns about Trump's mental health and his fitness for office.


"I think we can apply a test to his 16 tweets today. The test would be if this were the leader of ... Germany or China or Brazil — what would we say? How would we cover these tweets?" he asked.

"We would say these are the messages from a person who is not well, from a leader who is not fit for office."


Sums it up quite nicely. But hey....emails!

Except that these will be the greatest, classiest trophies ever. The best. Absolutely amazing.

But not the biggest. They need to be gripped by tiny, tiny hands.

He's not really "inside" my head, but I am amazed frankly that the guy has not been ridden out of town by now. It speaks poorly of the people that still support him, although I do believe that this is a dwindling minority. They will not likely be convinced of the mans idiocy, but that does not mean we should not stop the attempt to educate them. Very little has been achieved in this world, by giving up!

Very correct. Not speaking out and giving behavior like this a pass "normalizes" it. And attacks on a free press is behavior that should not be normalized. That is something definitely that The Donald wants.

Ah, Mr Kimmel comes up with the best name for said awards

Quote:
"Sounds like somebody’s been in the White House laundry room eating Tide pods again because the president of the United States is-- starting his own awards show for the media," Kimmel said during his ABC show.

"The Stupid People’s Choice Awards are what they’re calling it


How piquant.

From thehill:
Quote:
In November, Trump suggested there should be a contest among news networks — excluding Fox News — for the “Fake News Trophy.”


So, absent Fox, these could end up being badges of honour for the lucky recipients?

Is this still happening, or has our Glorious Orange Leader been distracted by some new shiny object.

I suspect it will resurface after the DACA/immigration and budget talks, unless a shutdown occurs, which looks very possible.

The awards were posted, but the website crashed immediately. GOP plans websites just as well as they govern!

Will he have a "Biggest, Most Egregious, Everybody Says So, Don't Even Go There, Fakest News Story, Believe Me" Truckasaurus Award?

If so, you're a shoe in to present it.
