Trump rails against ‘Fake News’ in bizarre tirade, warns industry will fold when he leaves office


President Trump teed off on the news media in a bizarre Twitter rant Thursday morning ahead of a big social media summit at the White House slated for later in the day.
The string of tweets attacked the news media and claimed the industry would go out of business when he leaves office, even suggesting outlets would be forced to endorse him this cycle for the sake of their own survival.
He went on to alternately praise himself, lob insults at familiar targets in the 2020 Democratic field and even joke about serving more than two terms.
The president went on Thursday to slam 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, deploying his nicknames for former Vice President Joe Biden, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren -- and suggesting the country would rather have him as president, as he praised his own physical and mental attributes.
“Could you imagine having Sleepy Joe Biden, or Alfred E. Newman or a very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas (1/1024th), as your President, rather than what you have now, so great looking and smart, a true Stable Genius!” Trump tweeted. “Sorry to say that even Social Media would be driven out of business along with, and finally, the Fake News Meia!”


  1. Hertz is so beautiful on The Book of Balaam
    “Such tribute to Israel’s unique character is all the more impressive, as it is that of a stranger, speaking against his intention and interest, under the compulsion of a Higher Power. He proclaims the utter futility of all attempts on the part man to foil the purposes of God in regard to that People; and in rapturous strains, he foretells the glorious future which awaits Israel. Such is the burden of chapters 22-24, probably known in ancient times as The Book of Balaam ספר בלעם.”
    Baba Bathra 14b-15a
    “Now on the view that Job lived in the days of Moses, should not the book of Job come first? We do not begin with a record of suffering. But Ruth also is a record of suffering? [As it says, In the days when the chieftains ruled שפט השפטים, there was a famine in the land; and a man of Bethlehem in Judah, with his wife and two sons, went to reside in the country of Moab” (Ruth 1:1). It is a suffering with a sequel [of happiness], as R. Johanan said: Why was her name called Ruth? Because there issued from her David who replenished [רוה which R. Johanan connects with רות] the Holy One, blessed be He, with hymns and praises. Who wrote the Scriptures? Moses wrote his own book and the portion of Balaam ספר בלעם [The parables of Balaam in Num. XXIII, XXIV] and Job. Joshua wrote the book which bears his name and [the last] eight verses of the Pentateuch [recording the death of Moses]. Samuel wrote the book which bears his name and the Book of Judges and Ruth. David wrote the Book of Psalms, including in it the work of the elders, namely, Adam, Melchizedek, Abraham, Moses, Heman, Yeduthun, Asaph, and the three sons of Korah [much commentary here]. Jeremiah wrote the book which bears his name, the Book of Kings, and Lamentations. Hezekiah and his colleagues wrote (Mnemonic YMSHK) [much commentary here] Isaiah [much commentary here], Proverbs [“These too are proverbs of Solomon, which the men of King Hezekiah of Judah copied” (Proverbs 25:1)], the Song of Songs and Ecclesiastes. The Men of the Great Assembly wrote (Mnemonic KNDG) [much commentary here] Ezekiel [much commentary here], the Twelve Minor Prophets [much commentary here], Daniel and the Scroll of Esther. Ezra wrote the book that bears his name [this includes Nehemiah] and the genealogies of the Book of Chronicles up to his own time. This confirms the opinion of Rab, since Rab Judah has said in the name of Rab: Ezra did not leave Babylon to go up to Eretz Yisrael until he had written his own genealogy. Who then finished it [the Book of Chronicles]? Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. The Master has said: Joshua wrote the book which bears his name and the last eight verses of the Pentateuch. This statement is in agreement with the authority who says that eight verses in the Torah were written by Joshua, as it has been taught: [It is written], “So Moses the servant of the Lord died there, in the land of Moab, at the command of the Lord” (Deuteronomy 34:5). Now is it possible that Moses being dead could have written the words, Moses died there? The truth is, however, that up to this point Moses wrote, from this point Joshua wrote. This is the opinion of R. Judah, or, according to others, of R. Nehemiah.”
    Hertz says “Balaam’s personality is an old enigma, which has baffled the skill of commentators.” KA, Berel, Ehud, Lee Penn, IR, others: any thoughts? Personally, I take Scripture literally. Personally, I praise God that He sent Trump to the USA and Netanyahu to Israel...

  2. Trump's not wrong. His daily tirades and endless escapades are providing endless material for the media and liberal comedians with faux-news shoes. When he retires they'll have to continue to obsess over him just to keep themselves employed.
