Not that Meryl Streep’s assessment of Donald Trump is wrong, Trump echoes the alt right in their Asshole like behavior, no they are not brave or politically incorrect or alpha males, they are A-hole D-Bags who if they really had it, they would not need to talk it but deep down they are weak in mind and in spirit but MikeFrancesa.com digresses.
Meryl Streep is correct, Donald Trump is an A-Hole Bully with an inferiority complex but the question holds, who has done more to tear down Respect in America, Donald Trump or the past 50 years of Hollywood or Hollywood once the studio system broke down?
We think Hollywood is the far greater influence in tearing down the virtues of Respect & Character in America.

The Liberal Media Scions Are Appalled That Russia Would Have The Temerity To Try To Influence an American Election, Of Course We Should Call Out The Russians and Covertly Retaliate But All Smart Countries Attempt To Influence Foreign Elections, Including the USA, Classic Example 1948 Italy, What Do They Teach In Journalism School These Days, For God Sakes All One Has To Do is Visit Wikipedia To See the Many Examples of America Influencing and Attempting to Choose the Winner of a Foreign Election.
But of course most of the low rent talking heads will continue to use the word “unprecedented” when describing Russian attempts to influence the 2016 American presidential election. Here is Wikipedia:
The 1948 general election was greatly influenced by the Cold War that was starting between the United States and the Soviet Union.
The CIA, by its own admission, gave $1 million to Italian “center parties” and was accused of publishing forged letters in order to discredit the leaders of the Italian Communist Party. The National Security Act of 1947, that made foreign covert operations possible, had been signed into law about six months earlier by the American President Harry S. Truman.
“We had bags of money that we delivered to selected politicians, to defray their political expenses, their campaign expenses, for posters, for pamphlets,” according to CIA operative F. Mark Wyatt. In order to influence the election, the US agencies undertook a campaign of writing ten million letters, made numerous short-wave radio broadcasts and funded the publishing of books and articles, all of which warned the Italians of what was believed to be the consequences of a communist victory. Time Magazine backed the campaign and featured the Christian Democrat leader and Prime Minister Alcide De Gasperi on its cover and in its lead story on 19 April 1948.
The Christian Democrats eventually won the 1948 election with 48% of the vote, and the FDP received 31%. The CIA’s practice of influencing the political situation was repeated in every Italian election for at least the next 24 years. A leftist coalition would not win a general election for the next 48 years, until 1996. That was partly because of Italians’ traditional bent for conservatism and, even more importantly, the Cold War, with the US closely watching Italy, in their determination to maintain a vital NATO presence amidst the Mediterranean and retain the Yalta-agreed status quo of western Europe.

Now That Donald Trump Has Won One Would Think Conspiracy Theorists Would Have To Find Real Work But Their Bullshit Machine Grinds On, Alex Jones (FEMA Camps) Anyway George Noory Host of Coast To Coast AM Should Be Fired For Lack Of Conspiratorial Quality Control On January 1, 2017 He Brings Back Numerologist/Prediction Expert/Nostradamus Wannabes Joseph Jacobs & John Hogue When on January 1, 2016 Hogue Predicted Hillary Clinton Would win The Presidency And Jacobs said The Election Would Be Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton.
Here is Noory and his snake oil idiots on January 1, 2016:
George Noory, “Old John Hogue who does Nostradamus work on our show, he believes it is going to be Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.”
Joseph Jacobs, “Jeb Bush looks good, he looks much stronger believe it or not uh then does uh Trump.”
Remember when George Noory said he was offended and upset that Alex Jones led a mob of protesters and tried to incite them to attack Michelle Malkin when he crossed paths with her at a political event, Noory promised his audience he would bring it up with Alex Jones the next time he had him on as a guest and if he did not get a satisfactory explanation he would not continue to have Jones on his show, but of course Noory never brought it up, snake oil must continue to be sold and it is hilarious that Malkin is such a huge Trump fan considering that Trump went on the Alex Jones show and told him that his audience was going to be very happy with what the Trump administration would do once he became President.
Yes the conservative talk radio world is stoked to champion a man who says he does not need to read the daily intelligence brief because he is smart as if knowledge and intelligence are mutually exclusive. Why would Trump not want to apply his beautiful mind to one of our nation’s most important objectives, our national security, his superb analytical ability might piece together random bits of intelligence and figure out a possible terroristic plot, he can then direct our CIA/FBI to focus on his thesis and subsequently his genius could wind up saving American lives? Why, why would Trump deprive the American people from utilizing his stupendous brain?

Geraldo Rivera’s Worst Career Moment & Prime Example of his Blind Hypocrisy: Rivera Leads The Media’s Creation of Charles Manson & Then Decries and Wonders Why People Find Manson to Be Charismatic or Intriguing, Without The Media and the Post Trial Interviews, Charles Manson Would Be an Afterthought, Instead the Media Created an Arch Intelligent Svengali.
Here is Geraldo Rivera on The O’Reilly Factor on November 23, 2013:
Geraldo Rivera, “Why is Manson so charismatic to this new generation? I remember when Manson was the biggest selling t-shirt in this country. He has this sort of dark appeal to young people that is in its own way more disquieting or as disquieting as the attacks on the street.”
Yeah dope, I wonder why that is.
Without Geraldo Rivera and his Media cohorts, Charles Manson is a low rent dirtbag who led a small hippie cult of druggies and convinced them to commit murder in order to incite a race war. He would have been a tiny footnote in the long historical tract of 1960’s America but the media saw the paychecks, celebrity sells and if one orders the killing of a celebrity well the media can turn that person into an all powerful Bond villian. Geraldo defends himself by stating that he never paid Charles Manson a dime but he misses the point, with every ounce of media exposure you give Manson and his image more oxygen all while the interviewer advances his or her career and the networks increase their ratings.
And despite what Geraldo Rivera thinks, his interview was not tough, it was crap and not one interviewer ever was able to get Manson off of his talking points. People would respect Rivera more if he just admitted that he made a career off of garbage exploitation.
In 1988 Howard Rosenberg of the L.A. Times summed it up well:
In other words, TV is scaring us to death.
Enter TV bogeyman Geraldo Rivera, reliving that 1968 murderous rampage by the Manson gang.
“Its gruesomeness was a kick in the nation’s gut,” Rivera said on his talk show Monday, where he intercut numerous clips of his Manson interview with a studio discussion and his own bold revelations. “My diagnosis: He’s evil!”
Locked away for life in San Quentin (technically, he can be paroled, but won’t be), Manson has only one power these days: the power to frighten people. And he can’t even do that without a stage. Rivera delivered the stage–a stage built for two.
There they were on tape, Charlie and Geraldo, goblin to goblin, actor to actor, performing for the cameras, Charlie with a swastika on his forehead, Geraldo with his shirt sleeves rolled up in preparation for this nose-to-nose duel.
“There’s people who say you’re the devil!” Rivera charged.
“OK, I’ll play,” Manson replied. “I’ll be the devil.”
Later, they both crouched near the floor as Manson explained his hold on his followers. The two continued to argue.
“You’re a murderer and a dog, Charlie,” Rivera snarled. “A murderer and a dog,” Manson repeated. “You’re a mass murderer and a dog,” Rivera added. Nyeh, nyeh, nyeh-nyeh nyeh.
And much later, Rivera clearly could take no more. How dare this brutal, incoherent criminal Manson act like a brutal, incoherent criminal in front of Geraldo Rivera, who had come to San Quentin hoping that Manson would act like a brutal, incoherent criminal.
Geraldo to Charlie: “I get (angry), man! I can play, but I get (angry).”
About this time, you began wondering if the wrong man was locked up.
This entire episode was a vivid example of mutual back scratching, of using and being used. Manson was manipulating the camera and Rivera was manipulating Manson, and both knew what was going on and reveled in the process–the mutually beneficial partnership of crime biz and show biz.
Don’t shows like this “feed his ego?” one member of the audience wondered.
“After almost 20 years, why is society still obsessed with Charles Manson and the mass murders?” asked another.
For the same inexplicable reason that society is attracted to the very violence that it fears. Our fascination with evil–from Nazism to organized crime–is documented in the profit sheets of the publishing and entertainment industries and Rivera’s own specials.
At the same time, the public call for self-serving Manson retrospectives such as Rivera’s and the repulsive one on Fox’s “A Current Affair” Monday on KTTV Channel 11–featuring grisly, shadowy, slo-mo re-enactments of the Manson gang’s killings–has yet to be heard.
“He knows very well what he is doing, and he’s having a great time doing it,” sociologist Jack Levin said about Manson on Rivera’s show. So what possible good purpose can be served by giving someone like Manson a forum, by pleasing him? What lessons are to be learned that would justify giving him exposure?
The only lesson, unfortunately, is that some TV people will do anything for an audience.
“He’s so full of crap,” Geraldo said. In that regard, Manson was in good company.

Bill O’Reilly Equals The Shining Example of a Trump Cultist: Believes That Hillary Clinton Did Not Win the Popular Vote Because Her Nearly 3 Three Million Vote Lead Contains a Net 4.27 Million Votes From Progressive California Which Always Votes Democratic Thus It Should Be Invalidated But If We Use O’Reilly’s Stunted Logic, Invalidating an Entire State Because It Has Voted Democratic Since 1992 Then We Must Invalidate the Trump Always Republican/Never Democrat Since 1968/1980 States of Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Alabama, Kansas, Utah & Many Others.
Bill O’Reilly is the sterling example of a Trump supporter who makes up his own news and own facts. The votes of California do not matter because they always vote Democratic, sure, why not, invalidate an entire state because they don’t vote for the Republican party but make sure you invalidate the large states that never vote for the Democratic party, be consistent in your idiotic thinking but Bill O’Reilly is a legend in his own mind and while his logic is diseased he begins on a complete false note that if you did invalidate California, suddenly Trump has a resounding popular vote victory.
False, that takes 4.27 million votes away from Clinton, thus giving Trump a 1.4 million popular vote lead which would give Trump a one percentage point popular vote lead, clearly not a landslide or decisive win as O’Reilly suggests and because we must follow O’Reilly’s diseased Trump cultist logic we must also invalidate Texas since they have voted Republican since 1980 and Oklahoma since they have voted Republican since 1968: Texas removes 800,000 net votes from Trump and Oklahoma removes 529,000 net votes from Trump, while we are at it we can add Utah’s 215,000 net Trump votes since they also have not voted Democratic since 1968 and now Clinton is once again up 100,000 popular votes.
Bill O’Reilly a man with a diseased mind, faulty logic, fake facts, purveyor of fake news, and allegedly the epitome of a phony Family Man, which makes him the perfect Trump apologist and cultist.
Just looking out for the folks:
Bill O’Reilly, “But the left is desperately searching for some reason to explain why Secretary Clinton and the Democratic Party lost so badly.
Yes, I know the popular vote went to Mrs. Clinton, but it was all California and every fair-minded person knows that.
Take that progressive state out of the mix and it was a decisive win for trump in almost every other way.”
Because you don’t vote the way Bill O’Reilly deems you should or at least have established a consistent pattern of voting against the way O’Reilly thinks you should, your votes should be entirely invalidated, the entire state of California should not be factored into Hillary Clinton’s popular vote lead, makes zero logical sense but O’Reilly is not scared to spew it out to the folks.
And now here is the reality for those who still have common sense:
Mrs. Clinton’s big win in California was, on paper, potentially enough to be “responsible” for the electoral-popular vote split in the same way that the Deep South drove Mr. Cleveland’s popular vote win in 1888.
But unlike the situation in 1888, Mrs. Clinton’s huge victory in California (along with the District of Columbia and Hawaii, where Mrs. Clinton won by a higher percentage than she did in California) was almost entirely canceled out by Mr. Trump’s dominance of his base states — which we’ll call Appalachafornia — from West Virginia to Wyoming. (“Appalachafornia” consists of West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota and South Dakota.)
Mrs. Clinton led in the rest of the country by the same two-point margin after excluding Appalachafornia and California — and yet she still loses the Electoral College vote by about the same margin.

Mitt Romney The Ultimate Empty Suit Changes From Donald Trump Is The Worst Person In The World, “Dishonesty is Trump’s hallmark”, To a Few Months Later, “I have very high hopes, new administration, lead the nation, greater strength/peace/prosperity.” Therein Lies Why Donald Trump Was Elected: Empty Suits Equals Empty Rhetoric. Problem?
The problem is Donald Trump is going to play his voters and the American people the same way he played Mitt Romney, like the ultimate mark/chump/sucker, because a Con Man always takes down his prey, it’s what they do.
Here is Mitt Romney in March of 2016:
Mitt Romney, “Let me put it plainly, if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.”
And now Mitt Romney in December of 2016:
Mitt Romney, “I have very high hopes that the new administration will lead the nation to greater strength, prosperity and peace.”
And with that our hopes of a system of checks and balances go down considerably as the House and Senate are full of Romney like Empty Suits. You never should have taken the meeting Mitt, you got played ole Mittie-Boy. You should have remembered your old statement, “Dishonesty is Trump’s hallmark.”

The Lebron James Posse References Goes Back to 2005, Lebron James Did Not React to GQ’s Larry Platt’s Feature LBJ Article, “his Posse hangs with Jay-Z’s Posse”. Will Donald Trump Bring Back the Posse Comitatus Act? As The Beastie Boys Once Said, “My Posse’s Getting Big and My Posse’s Getting Bigger”.
Lebron James will soon be giving his opinion on the rumors of Donald Trump’s plans to repeal the Posse Comitatus Act:
“This little guy, he’s a comedian,” LeBron says. It’s hard to imagine any of Jordan’s posse ever razzing him about his appearance, but that’s part of LeBron’s appeal—he is not yet the untouchable and unpredictable gure that Jordan became. Despite the massive machinery that now dictates his life and responds to his whims, LeBron remains, essentially, a kid.
And the Four Horsemen are living large. LeBron sees to it that Rich gets bit parts in his Nike commercials; his posse hangs with Jay-Z’s posse. “Jay-Z leaves me messages like ‘Stay focused’ and ‘Keep your head up,’ ” LeBron says. “And he don’t just leave me messages, he talks to my crew, too. Tells them to stay focused. Him calling my crew, that just shows me he’s got a lot of love for a person like me.
Whether it is Leonardo DiCaprio or DiCraprio or Lebron James, if you hang with an entourage/crew/posse, you are the ultimate tool, even with your billions, King James you are not.

Post Election Lie: Everybody Who Is Now Gloating Over Their Predictions of a Trump Victory Were Clued Into The Working Man/Woman of America, They Talked to the People, They Could See While Everyone Else Was in a Bubble, Complete BS, These are all the Same Sages Who Predicted Barack Obama Would Lose to John McCain/Mitt Romney, We Were Wrong, For Once Talk Radio Was Right, But Talk Radio Was Wrong in the Past, Nobody Truly Can Predict The Future and the Issues Will all Change in 4 Years, All of these Self Satisfied Clowns are Perfectly Encapsulated by the Pretentious Peggy Noonan who Declares that Her Italian Shoe-Shop Repairman said “Troomp/Trump” Will Win Months Ago, This Instructed Noonan that “Now Only The Normal People Can See The Obvious”, Oh God, That Same “Trump/Troomp” So Called Normal Man Was Saying McCeyn/McCain & Romnee/Romney 8 and 4 Years Ago, Nobody is the Oracle, Nobody is the Sage, Nobody Has Special Insight into the Average/Working/Middle Class American and Losing the Popular Vote and Equaling Romney’s Vote Total with 20 more million eligible voters is not a Revolution, it is Romney’s Base Plus the Worst Candidate in History, Hillary Clinton, Now It Will Be Fun Watching Trump Break His Promises and the Republicans Overreach, See you in 4 Years.
Welcome America to the old boss, same as the new boss. Barack Obama had the dirtbag Valerie Jarrett as his controlling/unelected & overall horrible chief advisor and now Donald Trump will have the arch dirtbag Steve Bannon as his controlling/unelected overlord (chief strategist).
Donald Trump won so none of this matters, if you win by one vote you get the power but a revolution does not lose you the popular vote and equal the amount of Romney votes when there were 10 to 20 million more eligible voters based on population increases.
But this is going to be fun, you just elected a Plutocrat, an extreme Self Dealer and Corrupt Kleptocrat, not a surprise that Putin is his hero, look at all of the insiders and lobbyists he is hiring, he might throw the working class a few bones but after four years Trump and his cronies will get the lion share of the profits, the con job is just beginning.
See you in four years, this is going to be one hell of a ride, maybe the Democrats can actually offer up a real candidate or maybe someone with integrity will run as a third party candidate, either way Trump and his inside men are going to make a fortune, keep your eye on that debt clock.
In 2020 we will check back with Peggy Noonan to see what normal average working class Joe she finds to lead with her editorial and clue her in to the obvious:
It was a natural, self-driven eruption. Which makes it all the more impressive and moving. And it somehow makes it more beautiful that few saw it coming.
On the way home Wednesday morning I thought of my friend who runs the neighborhood shoe-repair shop. He is elderly, Italian-American, an immigrant. I had asked him last winter who would win the Republican nomination and he looked at me as if I were teasing. “Troomp!” he instructed. I realized at that moment: In America now only normal people can see the obvious. Everyone else is lost in a data-filled fog.
That was true right up to the end.
William Goldman said it best, “Nobody Knows Anything”, including this website and the liberating thing is all of the people that got Trump wrong are now telling you what Trump will do in the future. There is no need to read any of them and on the other side, the conservative right wing nut jobs like Hannity/Drudge/Ingraham/Coulter/Savage/Levin/Limbaugh all legends in their own mind because of their Trump prediction, are acting like God but these same conspiracy laden fools were wrong in 2008/2012 and countless times in history.
The pundit class is corrupt on the left/right and on the conspiracy fringes it is beyond corrupt, at least Hannity et al make millions but with the exception of Alex Jones most of the conspiracy idiots get the crumbs. But it is all a joke and Trump played them all for suckers, enjoy the Trump money train and note the Republican overreach.

President Elect Trump, You Promised To Hire Smart People Not Political Hacks, Outsiders Not Insiders, First Promise Betrayed With The Impending Arrival Of Kellyanne Conway, Rudolph Giuliani, Chris Christie, Reince Pubis et al.? What happened to Carl Icahn et al.?
Did we Just Go From One Empty Slogan, “Hope and Change” To Another, “Make America Great Again”?
