Is Delegitimizing Trump Prelude to Ousting Him Once in Office?

Is Delegitimizing Trump Prelude to Ousting Him Once in Office?

by Stephen Lendman

No incoming US president ever faced more daunting challenges than Trump - denigrated as illegitimate despite defeating Hillary convincingly.

Next week he’ll be inaugurated to succeed Obama. No grand welcome awaits him. Staged protests are planned in Washington and other cities nationwide - possibly turning violent if things get out-of-control.

Never before in US history has anything like this occurred, the stuff revolutions are made of, on January 20 in America for the wrong reason - denigrating America’s 45th president, not a corrupted political system too debauched to fix.

Media scoundrels remain relentless. Thankfully their influence waned, the result of deplorable one-sided pro-Hillary/anti-Trump reporting, continuing without letup. 

A Monday NYT piece calls Trump and his presidency tainted “beyond redemption” - claiming the fake news Russian hacking report proves it.

No responsible editor would allow this type rubbish to be published. Times editors feature it daily. “Donald Trump is as much Russia’s appointment as our elected executive,” said The Times.

Moscow “had its desired result…on our election day. This was an act of war and our presidency was the spoil.”

Can any even half-witted reader believe rubbish this extreme - the stuff only truth-haters put out with relish, shameless propaganda masquerading as journalism.

“Donald Trump Is Not the President-Elect,” huffed the Huffington Post, the same operation consigning coverage of his campaign to its entertainment section.

“…Hillary is president-elect,” it roared, claiming she won both the popular and Electoral College vote, the writer’s credibility instantly lost, never to be regained.

The article was a hateful spoof that flopped. It lacked anything redeeming. “Trump is all we feared, but worse,” it blustered.

Relentless scoundrel media criticism consistently ignores mention of Hillary’s high crimes as co-president with husband Bill, US senator and secretary of state, along with her private sector wrongdoing - notably her foundation racketeering and money-laundering.

Obama’s wars on humanity at home and abroad go unmentioned along with his numerous other high crimes.

Despite no public record on which to judge him, Trump is relentlessly bashed before assuming the office he won. Imagine what’s likely coming after beginning to serve.
