Default Media Mocks Trump for Using Term Media Uses Routinely

So Trump tweets he has a nuclear button and it works...

The media rushes in to inform everyone there IS NO BUTTON!!!!!...

New York Times...

The ‘Nuclear Button’ Explained: For Starters, There’s No Button

CNN...

No, Trump doesn't have a big nuclear button on his desk

Now, of course, the term "nuclear button" has been used for decades...It's nothing more than a turn of phrase...

How do I know?...Because the very same media uses it!!!!...

The very same New York Times in February...

The Finger on the Nuclear Button

The very same CNN in August...

How to keep Trump's thumb off the nuclear button



So it goes like this...

MEDIA - Trump has his finger on the nuclear button.

TRUMP - I have my finger on the nuclear button.

MEDIA - There's no nuclear button, stupid!!!

DJT and the media are busy pushing each other's buttons. Monday, he is suppose to give out an award for corruption and dishonesty in the media.

The Donald ignored the old advice of many to never argue with someone who buys ink by the barrel. So far, however, I think he is holding his own if not winning the conflict.

New media, FOIA, Wikileaks, and DJT have helped expose the MSM information/propaganda industry. Monday's corruption/dishonesty award should have a name. How about the Dan Rather award?

used by the press or when talking in person w anyone it is a metaphor for the launch code process.
when the president of the united states writes or says it publicly he should know what he is talking about also trump shouldn't have said it in the first place.
I tend to agree w one of his billionaire buddy's, "trump is crazy and stupid"

Of course you do. However, when you are typing a tweet, it is much more efficient to refer to the process as a button as opposed to the long drawn out nomenclature that no one cares about anyway. After all, tweets have a character limitation.

But none of this matters to those so wrapped up in their partisan ideologies; the point is to bash the president no matter what.

I can't wait until Kim Jong Un declares that he has a "nuclear football".

It will be another feeding fest for the salivating media.
