During a speech on Saturday in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump aired his numerous grievances with the media holding him to account for his incessant lies and never ending scandals. "It's 1999, I'm on Meet the Press, a show now headed by sleepy eyes Chuck Todd," Trump said. "He's a sleeping son of a bitch. I'll tell you."
We're about to see just how easy the "liberal" media is to manipulate by known liars and charlatans.
Wait, did you think no one would notice the obnoxious double standard?
And he'll probably get away with it, too.
Anti-Russia fever is so high that no one even noticed the remark from the former Director of National Intelligence
Even the most egregious trespass by Republicans is soft-pedaled by a press addicted to false neutrality.

Former Governor and Secretary of Der Homeland Security Tom Ridge literally wonders why Obama didn't say the EXACT THING Obama said.
At least he has the courage of no convictions.
It's getting really hard for the media to pretend that there's a real choice this election season.
Meet the Press, folks.
The extraordinary and long overdue sight of the Confederate flag coming down from the South Carolina capitol has given the mainstream media a bad case of amnesia for history that happened mere weeks ago. Nikki Haley wasn't a hero in this fight, she was a lying coward.
The President and his daughters went shopping on Small Business Saturday, and judged the Meet The Press host's tome by its cover.
Yes, our political discourse now involves something called "The Nerd Screen" -- and the legacy of Lawrence E. Spivak, Garrick Utley and Tim Russert is officially dead.
Chuck Todd scored a huge exclusive for his Meet The Press debut, and President Obama didn't disappoint in his one-on-one. The President covered a wide variety of headline-grabbing topics, but one of the things he said isn't getting nearly enough attention.
It's a success that can't be emphasized enough, yet too many people seem to forget where we were just a little more than six years ago.
Soundbite journalism is irritating, to be sure, but what's really frustrating is that these reporters and analysts are missing the real story.
Republicans recognize they have a women problem, so they're going to do everything they can to pretend to fix it.
NBC once again demonstrates its special talent for turning the demotion of a star player into a humiliating media clusterfuck.
'Meet the Press' can play musical chairs with the moderator seat all they want, but it's still going to be terrible.
Chuck Todd did a great job of keeping Todd Akin talking about "legitimate rape" -- the kind you can't get pregnant from, except when you can, at which time you should still be forced to carry your rapist's baby.
All week long, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's parents, and especially his father Robert Bergdahl, have been the target of ad hominem attacks by Fox News Channel and, as recently as this morning, Joe Scarborough. So today we add Robert Bergdahl to the following list...
The developing scandal around a Veterans Administration hospital in Phoenix was one topic of discussion at Monday's White House Daily Briefing, as Press Secretary Jay Carney fielded questions about the investigations underway, and NBC News Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd pressed the White House on creating a Healthcare.gov-style emergency team to deal with the V.A. backlog.
Los Angeles Clippers owner and all-around NBA-hole Don Sterling is the hot topic this weekend after a recording surfaced of him making racist remarks to his girlfriend, including a request that she not bring black people to Clippers games. Sterling's racism is now a global issue, thanks to NBC News' Chuck Todd, who asked President Obama to comment on the controversy during a joint press conference with Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia this morning.
Chuck Todd slammed CNN's ridiculous non-stop coverage of the search for Flight 370. A CNN senior producer fired back by basically saying, "You do it, too!" And as usual, we, the American public, are the big losers.
What kind of entitled, petulant, ignorant nonsense is this? Anyone who thinks the president should apologize for merely repeating in simplified terms something that's actually in the law needs to seriously re-evaluate their priorities, especially if they've either wittingly or unwittingly danced in the "Obamacare Horror Story" disinformation conga-line.
You might recall how Chuck Todd recently said that it's not really the job of the press to challenge congressional Republicans on misleading statements about Obamacare. Nevertheless, Todd attempted to confront Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) about the ongoing lie that Congress is exempted from Obamacare.
In the face of a coordinated campaign of misinformation and bullshit, journalists are the public's only defense. Their responsibility should always be to fact-check what comes out of the mouths of our leaders and provide the necessary context.
