They'd be out there doing their crazy shit even of Teh Orange Fucktard didn't insist on stirring the pot. But he does stir it. Constantly. Miserable puke that he is.

If the fake news media do not want to be called the "enemy of the people," maybe they should stop acting like it.
Jonathan Easley wrote:[According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll] Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
The people don't need Trump to tell them this, they can see it for themselves. Trump is just reminding us what we already know.

The institutional news media actually believes that "the press" in the 1st Amendment refers exclusively to them.
Do you have questions about God?

Well, 'The News' really shouldn't be 'for profit' now should it? Some get it right, but most do not. And it's been this way since the beginning. Party on dudes.

Weeks before the June 28 attack in Annapolis, Winters had taken active shooter training at her church, where a police officer presented the options: Run if you can run. Hide if you can hide. Fight only if you must.

Winters fought.

...

Winters charged forward holding a trash can and recycling bin, said Cooley, a sales consultant. Winters shouted something like “No! You stop that!” or “You get out of here!” like she was warding off an unwanted dog.

“She may have distracted him enough that he forgot about me, because I definitely stood up and was looking at the door,” Cooley said. “I’m sure he wasn’t expecting … anyone to charge him.

...

Police use the “run, hide, fight” training nationwide, said police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure. The Anne Arundel County Police Department began sharing active shooter training on Facebook after the San Bernardino shooting on Dec. 2, 2015.

If a threat is imminent and people are dying, Frashure said, anything – a fire extinguisher, a stapler, a trash can — can be used as a deterrent.

Winters bought time for Pacella, Davis and Messenger, they said, who were at their desks toward the back of the newsroom when the shooting started. Pacella hid under her desk. Messenger grabbed his keys and headed for the back door, which was barricaded, and then hid. Davis looked toward the crashing glass, then hit the floor.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
