A story on Politico caught my attention the other day. The story, titled “The Strange Psychological Power of ‘Fox & Friends’”, talked about how the President loves to watch the news morning show in order to feel what everyone else feels: “simultaneously happy, reassured, and smart.” As though the President and Fox & Friends viewers were 5 year-olds watching Dora the Explorer and feeling smart for finding the purple house for Dora.
The Left’s pessimism tears down the show as nothing more than a show about appealing to the President’s ego - never mind that the show has been on air for nearly 20 years. They are literally angry that he watches a show that is happy and positive 99% of the time. They think that Fox & Friends shows an America that only exists in the President’s mind.
In the article, they restate the fact that the attempt to repeal Obamacare has failed entirely, they remind people of the fact that Trump has been accused of collaborating with Russia to win the election, and quote the Gallup poll (the same one that had Hillary winning the election) that Trump’s approval rating is at 36%, an all-time low for a new president.
They hate the fact that Trump watches this show in order to get his news, saying that he has an entire staff dedicated to doing just that. They hate the fact that he doesn't see things the way they do. But most importantly they hate the fact that the President essentially IGNORES THEM! The Left doesn’t want the President to watch Fox & Friends. They want him to watch their shows in which they spend 99% percent of the time tearing him down and attempting to destroy his reputation.
The Left is simply HATEFUL. They hate Fox News in general, but they hate even more that the President watches FNC.
On top of that, since they hate the President with ardent fervor, they take every opportunity to belittle him by saying he has such a large and fragile ego. “For a president who no longer regularly receives adulation from screaming crowds at mega rallies, ‘Fox & Friends’ offers daily affirmation that he is successful and adored, that his America is winning after all.” Ironically, as regular readers know, I have said multiple times the exact same thing about the left. I’ve talked about how they pretty much live in their own little bubble and believe everything they tell themselves. That they believed Hillary is massively popular and adored and that she was going to wipe the floor with Trump. That Trump had no chance. That THEIR America was the real America, when in reality, TRUMP’s America is the real America.
Politico went as far as to employ psychology into their argument against the morning show. They asked Dannagal Young, a professor at the University of Delaware who studies the way people process political information, on the subject. “If I tuned in to watch the show, I would feel simultaneously happy, reassured and smart. When we are feeling happy and people are smiling around us, it ignites a primal response that is, ‘Things are good! Things are great! I don’t have to be careful. I don’t have to think carefully.’” Immediately following that statement, the writer of the Politico article wrote “The show is a ticket to a kind of self-perpetuating state of complacency, where its 1.7 million viewers become less likely to question their own beliefs and more likely to come back for more.”
My question then becomes, “when does the Left EVER question THEIR OWN beliefs?” They attack a show and its viewers for not questioning the validity of the content, which is exactly what every single mainstream media show does! The Leftstream media lives in its own bubble, and they think we live in OUR OWN little bubble. They are convinced that Trump cheated, Hillary was popular and loved, and that Trump is hated by nearly every single person that lives on the planet. And they are so blinded by this sort of hatred that they attack a show that is nearly always about positivity and having an optimistic outlook on the way things are going around the world.
The Left hates optimism and feed themselves on pessimism, and live in their own little world of false “optimism”.
“In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
