or we would not have THIS story to ponder:

"Melania Trump departing White House with lowest favorability of her tenure"

Sleep well, America.
CNN is on the watch.

When the existence of the Republic is at stake, CNN will bring you FIRST LADY POLLS!!!

Perhaps tomorrow they will tell us how many toilet flushes the Biden family plans to cut back while in The All Colors House of All People Except Trumptards.

We DO have a right to know such stuff.

(PS - anybody know what has been done lately to protect the electric grid? or data privacy? or to stop robocalls? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?)

Charge more. Sope & Dr Hoops claim to be rich & know what REAL wealth is, & the thought of the misery your posts causes some of these fools is worth waaaaay more than a meager million....
You better read Rule No. 3 again. You're way over budget.

3. Proud Boys Are Only Allowed to Masturbate Alone Once a Month & They Revere the Housewife While Maligning the Feminist
As part of the Proud Boys code, according to their “No Wanks” portion of the manifesto, “A Proud Boy may not ejaculate alone more often than once every thirty days.” During that time they’re also told to refrain from watching pornography. If a man “needs to ejaculate” and physical sex isn’t an option, he can masturbate “within one yard of a woman with her consent.” However, no prostitutes allowed for that purpose, according to the manifesto.​

The group attributes those rules to their religion, which they say comes from their “pope” Dante Nero, who calls himself a “Relationship Guru in his Twitter bio. There is no reprieve for married men who are away from their wives for long periods of time because according to the manifesto, no virtual sex is allowed.​

Yeah. Nothing unreasonable about that little boys club.

CNN like most national news they all report fake news these days. We just have to read between and figure out what is real and what is fake. That is why I usually only watch local new to what’s going on around me and effects me the most.

I'm disappointed. The only correct internet message board answer for this question is BOTH. Jeez, we're starting to take shit wayyyyy to seriously around here if we can't pick that low hanging fruit.

If we have to read between then they didn't do their job right. As a speaker I want to be heard but also understood. If people think I said something I didn't then I take that as a personal mistake I made.

I’m sure psychiatrists could explain it better, but mostly CNN is a bunch of dumb people pumping out dumb propaganda to other dumb people.
They've been tracking this thruout the Trump years, just like they tracked Michelle's... What's the point of the thread? I don't recall you starting one when they reported on her higher ratings back in 2018...


And if CNN appeals to dumb people, their competitors appear to appeal to people on the Imbecile scale...

Curious what "news sites" you feel qualify as appealing to Intelligent folks?

Why attack her?
Does this article attack her?

Did you complain when Fox and the other wingnuts attacked Michelle and their kids?

When will you learn to do some research before you blame the left for something the right has already done and much more egregiously? Speaking out of turn just makes you look stupid AND hypocritical...

Right wing criticisms of Michelle,with citation links...


"1. She expressed some mixed feelings about being proud of America as a black woman, which was obviously unpatriotic.
2. She’s “strikingly ungracious.” (Jim Geraghty, writing for National Review)3. She doesn’t look like a first lady (and she did push-ups). (Virginia voter Bobbie Lussier)
4. She disrespected the flag, as determined by lip readings of Obama whispering something inaudible to her husband during a ceremony. (Washington Times, American Thinker, Debbie Schlusse
5. She weighs too much to care about health: “The problem is — and dare I say this — it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritional, dietary advice. And then we hear that she’s out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving, yeah it does — what do you mean, what do I mean?” (Rush Limbaugh)
6. She “needs to drop a few” pounds before she can be taken seriously on the issue of nutrition. (Keith Ablow, prominent member of the Fox News “Medical A-Team”)

7. She eats too much, as demonstrated by a cartoon of a chubby Michelle chowing down on a burger and fries, telling a skinny Barack to “shut up and pass the bacon!” (Big Government)
8. She didn’t support dessert enough, and she “cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children.” (Sarah Palin)
AD

9. She forced children in day care to be weighed. (Urban legend, debunked by Snopes)
10. She has “no business being involved” in what people eat. (New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie)
11. She’s a “feminist nightmare” for focusing on her family. (Michelle Cottle, writing in Politico)
12. She is actually a man, and she murdered Joan Rivers to cover it up. (Alex Jones)

13. She’s not classy enough and is an “atrocity” as first lady: “She makes a fool of herself — every time she comes on TV, I have to turn it off. Laura Bush was so classy, and that’s what we really need again.” (Laurie Boilard, quoted by Bloomberg Politics at a party for a Republican candidate’s wife)
14. She dared to talk about the enslaved people who built the White House.
15. She is an “ape in heels.” (Pamela Ramsey Taylor, director of Clay County Development Corp., Clay, W.Va., who later swore she was not racist.)
16. She has a “gorilla face.” (Patrick Rushing, mayor of Airway Heights, Wash.)
17. She is a “poor gorilla” who “needs to focus on getting a total makeover (especially the hair), instead of planning vacations.” (Georgia schoolteacher Jane Wood Allen)
18. She put her left elbow on a table once. (Salon)
19. She ” ‘voluntarily surrendered’ her law license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for Insurance fraud!” (Chain email)
20. She went “to Buckingham Palace in a sweater.” (Oscar de la Renta)
21. She’s President Obama’s “baby mama.” (Fox News)
22. She wore shorts."


No racist attacks there or on the kids... AmIright??

Right now, I’m following the allegations that DC is under attack. I wasn’t reading CNN whenever they stupidly reported First Lady poll numbers before.

The argument “you didn’t post about THAT back when” is not the dumbest one used here, but it’s close. An issue/post either has merit or it doesn’t. Stands on its own. For example, I don’t recall you complaining about prior violent protests in DC. But I didn’t use it against you in the typical “whatabout you whatabouting” manner so popular here.

To answer your silly point though, I stopped posting here in September 2017, so even if I had read CNNs stupid polls, I would not have discussed here.

Continuing to use the bad behavior of bad people as an excuse for being a bad person behaving badly makes you a small man with little integrity.

A lot of the things you brought out are right. Michelle should not have been attacked like that. I will say that Michelle was not like Melania. Michelle put herself out there politically. I can't think of any major stories about Melania's politics. Perhaps this why they attacked Michelle, but I agree they went too far. You don't attack people's looks or a misstep in decorum.

I don't even know what that means... I simply pointed out that it appears CNN has been more than fair in their treatment of Melania, which I thought was what the OP was railing about...

And btw, the online version of any of these news networks' content appears to be a far cry from what they broadcast over the airwaves...

Your continued obsession with me strikes me as just a tad strange. I don't even recall seeing any posts from you until 2020...

Right now, I’m following the allegations that DC is under attack. I wasn’t reading CNN whenever they stupidly reported First Lady poll numbers before.

The argument “you didn’t post about THAT back when” is not the dumbest one used here, but it’s close. An issue/post either has merit or it doesn’t. Stands on its own. For example, I don’t recall you complaining about prior violent protests in DC. But I didn’t use it against you in the typical “whatabout you whatabouting” manner so popular here.

To answer your silly point though, I stopped posting here in September 2017, so even if I had read CNNs stupid polls, I would not have discussed here.
I see you avoided answering my question of WHY you started the thread in the first place?

So you say the polls are "silly" and you would not have discussed it here previously? But now for some reason, you feel the need to not only discuss it but also to make some obscure point about it?

Were you here in March 2019? Because that's when Judge Jeanine made a huge point out of saying Melania was more popular than her Fox poll numbers indicated. That didn't raise your ire (a Fox News poll and commentary on Melania's poll numbers) from 2019 nearly 2 yrs from her husband's attempt to win a second term.


Yet for some reason, a CNN poll that basically bookended her term as First Lady and showed the evolution of her popularity over that time was enough to get you to launch a thinly veiled attack on CNN? I guess the CNN (and Fox) stories are both the type of fluff that "news organizations" resort to in order to drive readership,. But like I said I'm curious why you deemed it worthy of a thread and tried to pretend that it was exclusively a CNN thing?
