    yet you say nothing when someone on "the right" uses a "fake news" source. As a matter of fact you don't even seem to know what the term "fake news" means.

    That's a ridiculous statement.

    Have a good evening.

    That's fake news, it doesn't matter how much you guys living in the Alt Left Bubble want to believe it.

    And, rarely do I use MSM sources.

    It's difficult to find a MSM source that is accurate.

    Especially an opinion piece.
    LOL - you obviously know nothing about how journalism really works. This wasn't an "opinion piece" - they interviewed several of his supporters.

    You can keep screaming fake news all you want, but that doesn't make this issue go away.

    He didn't write it. A ghost writer did.

    He ran on a populous agenda.

    Seems like he has flipped on that and is now looking more like a Jeb Bush...at least for now.

    The alt-right will have a meltdown if Bannon is booted from the WH.

    Is this "fake news" too?

    lol

    Conservative leaders are putting President Trump on notice: If he doesn’t stick to his campaign promises, there will be hell to pay in the midterm election.Activists are particularly disappointed at the failure to repeal ObamaCare and defund Planned Parenthood. “Someone’s got to take responsibility. They no longer have excuses not to do things,” said L. Brent Bozell III, the chairman of ForAmerica, a conservative advocacy group.

    Other conservatives are disappointed at Trump’s flip on the Export-Import Bank. The president told The Wall Street Journal this week that “actually it’s a very good thing.”

    “I think that’s a tragic mistake on his part,” said Andrew Roth, vice president of government affairs at the Club for Growth, a conservative group that has frequently criticized Trump. Trump supporters in the media such as Ann Coulter have expressed disappointment that the president has stalled in building his wall on the Mexican border. His appointment of Kevin Hassett to lead the Council of Economic Advisers has also taken a hit from anti-immigration groups opposed to Hassett’s support for increased immigration. Roy Beck, president of Numbers USA, a group dedicated to reduced immigration levels, says he is waiting on Trump to fulfill his promise of repealing Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which grants work permits to immigrants brought into the country illegally at a young age.

    Bozell warns that Trump will pay a political price if he doesn’t energize his base. “If they don’t do it, I absolutely guarantee you that conservatives will walk,” he said.

    Was watching Erin Burnett CNN , everything she discusses or questions guests about is to make Trump look as bad as possible. She was wetting her drawers over using the MOAB today. Trump having some nefarious intentions. Never been used before.

    Donald Trump campaigned as an outsider who would upend years of Washington orthodoxy in matters of both war and peace — an approach that helped him assemble the unconventional coalition that ultimately won him the presidency.

    But in recent days, the president has done an about-face and embraced many of the policy positions he once scorned as the trappings of a foolhardy establishment.

    Trump voiced support for NATO, which he called “obsolete” during the campaign. He walked back his pledge to label China a currency manipulator and endorsed the Export-Import bank, which he previously opposed.

    These and other recent flip-flops have soothed the nerves of many Republicans worried he was looking to upend too much of the status quo. But they could also alienate some supporters who see Washington co-opting yet another politician elected to reform the government.

    Yep for now - he's McCain - at least on foreign policy issues.

    Donald Trump’s true believers are losing the faith. As Trump struggles to keep his campaign promises and flirts with political moderation, his most steadfast supporters — from veteran advisers to anti-immigration activists to the volunteers who dropped their jobs to help elect him — are increasingly dismayed by the direction of his presidency.

    Their complaints range from Trump’s embrace of an interventionist foreign policy to his less hawkish tone on China to, most recently, his marginalization of his nationalist chief strategist, Steve Bannon. But the crux of their disillusionment, interviews with nearly two dozen Trump loyalists reveal, is a belief that Trump the candidate bears little resemblance to Trump the president. He’s failing, in their view, to deliver on his promise of a transformative “America First” agenda driven by hard-edged populism. "Donald Trump dropped an emotional anchor. He captured how Americans feel," said Tania Vojvodic, a fervent Trump supporter who founded one of his first campaign volunteer networks. "We expect him to keep his word, and right now he's not keeping his word."

    Earlier this week, Vojvodic launched a Facebook group called, “The concerned support base of President Trump,” which quickly drew several dozen sign-ups. She also changed the banner on her Facebook page to a picture of Bannon accompanied by the declaration: “Mr. President: I stand with Steve Bannon.” "I'm not so infatuated with Trump that I can't see the facts," she said. "People's belief, their trust in him, it’s declining."

    The swiftness and abruptness of Trump’s shift from bomb-throwing populist outsider to a more mainstream brand of Republican has taken the president’s stalwarts by surprise.

    Trump?s base turns on him - POLITICO


    His dismal approval rating was only being propped up by his most ardent supporters. Have to wonder what his approval rating will look like next week.
    His presidency has a direction?

    You are the 2nd most prolific fake news poster on this site.

    I'm sure you will continue to not only post fake news thread but continue to attempt to rebut facts with fake news.

    And, you will continue to be proven wrong in your assessment again and again and most likely not even see just how foolish it makes you look.

    You are good for entertainment Jenn, if for anything.
