The small chorus of pro-Trump figures defending his disastrous presser with Putin

Nonetheless, a group of Trump’s most ardent supporters in the media rejected the overwhelming consensus and defended the president:

Fox’s Jeanine Pirro: “What was [Trump] supposed to do, take a gun out and shoot Putin?”
Fox host Sean Hannity praised Trump for being “very strong at the end of the press conference.”
Infowars host Owen Shroyer on the press conference: “It just kept getting better in time.”
Conservative radio host Mark Simone: “The whole idea of a summit is to make peace. That’s what he was doing there.”
Fox host Laura Ingraham admonished “mass hysteria” in reaction to the press conference and downplayed Trump’s performance as involving an “unfortunate word choice.”
Fox’s Tucker Carlson attacked media for their reactions to the press conference and said it seems like politicians critical of Trump’s actions toward Putin and Russia “seek increased conflict with Russia.”
Breitbart’s Joel Pollak: “A day after the media/Democrats/NeverTrump meltdown over Trump-Putin summit, they’re still wrong, the world’s still here, and the future is bright.”
Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering: “Remind me, did Obama forcefully confront Putin for” the 2014 attack on a Malaysian Airlines passenger flight over Ukraine?
The Washington Times boosted comments from former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), current host of the web show Liberty Report, who categorized Trump’s meeting with Putin as “significant diplomacy.”

Trump Official Lobbies for British Ultranationalist at Breitbart’s Request

Last month, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell made headlines when he suggested he aimed to empower the far right across Europe, drawing the ire of critics at home and abroad. Yet a new Reuters report reveals he’s hardly an outlier within the Trump administration.

According to the international news agency, Sam Brownback, a former Kansas senator and governor, who currently serves as U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, lobbied Britain’s envoy to the U.S. to release infamous ultranationalist Tommy Robinson following his 13-month conviction for contempt of court. What’s more, Brownback appears to have acted at the behest of Breitbart, the far-right news site whose former chairman, Steve Bannon, previously served as Trump’s senior White House adviser.

Yes, Steve Bannon Should Terrify You – The New York Times

 

So is Bannon miscalculating horribly and simply out of his gourd? No. He’s not thinking in the conventional terms of Republicans versus Democrats; he’s thinking that “any disruption is a good thing, and that the best way to get what he wants — a white-centered, nationalist America — is to blow up the establishment,” the Republican strategist said. Other Republican operatives concurred.

Before he joined Trump, Bannon bragged he made Breitbart the home of the “alt-right.” Now he’s back.

Donald Trump: Five Australian incidents in White House list of under-reported ‘terrorist attacks’ – Donald Trump’s America – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

The White House sends journalists a list of terror attacks it believes did not receive adequate attention from Western media — including five incidents in Australia, one of which was determined to be a murder case. That list is an obvious case of fake news being used to boost  what’s a case of “confirmation bias”. Searching for information to prove a conclusion you want drawn is trying to squeeze marshmallows into a money box. It’s purely the Art of the Deal.
