I’ve already written about the “meeting” Trump and Putin had at the G20 Summit. I’ve already discussed how it was a nothing-burger and made to seem like a mountain when it’s merely a molehill. Well, part of the reason it’s made to seem like a mountain is because the MSM (particularly CNN) has called this talk that the two presidents had a “secret meeting.”
Trump even called out the fake news media by tweeting: “Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is ‘sick’. All G20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!” And: “The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!”
CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote an analysis piece challenging the president’s “fake news” accusations, saying: “No media outlet reported anything about a ‘secret dinner’… No one is making the dinner look ‘sinister’. And, no one is suggesting the media was unaware that the dinner was taking place.” Later on Twitter, he said: “Again, NO ONE is saying the meeting was private or secret. NO ONE.”
However, I can attest to the contrary. I remember having gotten a Fox News alert on my iPhone saying that Trump and Putin had held a secret meeting. And even Cillizza’s own employer, CNN, had said multiple times that the dinner and meeting were “secret”.
Brooke Baldwin, host of CNN Newsroom, “twice referred to the meeting as a ‘secret sitdown’ between Trump and Putin – and even at one point asked, “Why didn’t we (the media) know about this?”, according to Breitbart.
She also said that “These two presidents, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, did not disclose a second meeting until now.” Yeah, you usually don’t have to disclose a random chat you have with a foreign leader, Brooke.
But she’s not the only person that contradicts Cillizza’s claim that no one called the meeting “secret”. Kate Bolduan, host of State of America, called it a “secret and second sitdown between the president and Russian president Vladimir Putin. Why wasn’t the meeting revealed? What was discussed? And who knows what was said?” And according to Breitbart, “Bolduan described the meeting a second time live on CNN as ‘secret’”.
It’s not just CNN anchors that contradict Cillizza’s claim that no one called it a “secret” meeting. Washington Post’s Aaron Blake tweeted: “Why did Trump meet secretly with Putin? Here are 3 theories.” And then proceeds to link the story he wrote.
Salon’s Matthew Rozsa also calls the meeting “secret” in his article titled: “Donald Trump defends his second, secret meeting with Vladimir Putin.”
And the Financial Times, in their “Daily Briefing”, referred to the meeting as “secret”.
Point is that EVERYONE WAS CALLING IT A SECRET MEETING! Everyone wanted this to be a story on how Trump and Putin are possibly plotting something behind the scenes and the media is left in the dark. They want people to read their headlines and think “wow, Trump and Putin had a secret meeting? That MUST mean there was collusion in the election and that Trump cheated to get elected.”
But just as I figured, this wound up being another nothing-burger. And I’ll make a prediction: EVERYTHING ON THIS MATTER WILL WIND UP AS BEING A NOTHING-BURGER! Granted, that’s an easy prediction to make, knowing what I know about the Left and their tactics and also knowing the very nature of the reason this matter even exists.
I’ve said multiple times that the only reason this matter even exists is because the Left can’t get over the fact that they were utterly REJECTED this last election, so they came up with an excuse that will lead them to nowhere.
But the focus of this article isn’t the “collusion” narrative the Left drives. Overall, it’s about the fake news that the MSM ALWAYS delivers. Every single news organization out there said that the meeting between the presidents was “secret” and that they were “unaware of it”. All it turned out to be is a one-hour chat between the two world leaders, likely to fraternize and strengthen the relationships between the countries. But the MSM treats it as though the meeting was held behind closed doors. And that the media is like Kay at the end of The Godfather, seeing “Don” Donald Trump about to do business with Putin behind closed doors.
The reality of the situation is that the two world leaders met in public and talked in public. Chris Cillizza says that no one said it was secret, but everyone around him in the media world was calling it that precisely.
I just love it when the Fake News media gets called out for what they are. Both when one particular person lies about what the media is saying and when whole networks are found to be lying to the people.
And the thing about constantly lying to your audience is that, eventually, there will be slip-ups. You’ll say something that horrendously and untimely contradicts either what you said previously, or what everyone else around you (who are also lying) is saying. And they constantly lie because they are wicked. They lie to get where they want to go and get what they want. They lie to gain power. They lie to destroy everyone who isn’t like them and doesn’t think like them.
They lie because, if they showed their true colors, no one would like them. That’s one of the reasons millennials love socialism. They’ve been told lies about it. That it’s wonderful and everyone is equal and no one has too much or too little and the government helps everyone. All of that is a LIE. Because if they told people what socialism is truly about, no one in their right mind (that isn’t in the government) would want it.
“The righteous hate what is false, but the wicked make themselves a stench and bring shame on themselves.”
