MEDIA WATCH: The shove that circled the world

NEWSER – It was a shove seen around the world: President Trump pushed aside Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic as NATO leaders prepared for a group photo at the alliance's headquarters in Brussels Thursday.

 Trump was criticized by news outlets in the Balkans and elsewhere, but Markovic himself shrugged it off, the AP reports. "It didn't really register. I just saw reactions about it on social networks," he said. "It is simply a harmless situation." Markovic, whose country will become NATO's 29th member next month, went on to thank Trump for supporting Montenegro, adding: "It is natural that the president of the United States is in the front row."

Another Trump interaction that raised eyebrows Thursday was what reporters described as an epic handshake between the American leader and French President Emmanuel Macron when they met at the US ambassador's residence in Brussels.

Unusually, Trump, who congratulated Macron on his "tremendous victory," appeared to be the first one who tried to end the handshake, Mashable reports. "The two men shook hands for six long seconds," writes Philip Rucker at the Washington Post. "Their knuckles turned white, their jaws clenched, and their faces tightened"

What is "credited media report" Media Watch, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, etc.? Hahahahaha. Obama has not been arrested--YET--because of so much corruption in government, including by the FBI. President Much of it bought and paid for by the Clintons. Trump is working hard to clean the swamp.

If there are facts why hasn't he been arrested? Yes I do rely on credited media report and if Obama broke the law it would have been reported, the FBI would have investigated, he would have went to trial and then to jail if he did anything criminal.....so where's the facts?

Yes wasn't that at the beginning of his "apology tour" when he traveled the world apologizing for America. Some patriot. He is nothing but an Islamic apologist and supporter who was determined to destroy our great country. If you need proof just look at the Iranian deal with billions in cash being shipped on private airplanes in the middle of the night. Who does that kind of shit. Wait a minute that was Obama. Thank God Trump came along and hopefully with even a little cooperation will get things fixed. The rest of you can just shut up and watch an expert at work.

Great post, Richard! And speaking of Hillary, it is beyond me that with her criminal activities, she was even ALLOWED to run for president. She should be in prison, and hopefully that is in her future. Sooner if not later. Those that voted for her and defend her demonstrate a total lack of critical thinking ability.

Yes, Obama WAS (and is) a criminal. Obviously you depend on only mainstream media for your "information" - (i.ie. LIES).

If Obama was not qualified then certainly the orange buffoon in office is not qualified, nothing but a liar, con man . Lest we need to be reminded, Trump lost the popular by over 2 million. He is an embarrassment.

That's one of the problems with the GOP today. They don't base much on facts, opinions do just as well. Opinions do't prove anything. Sure you are entitled to your opinion but when you are calling someone a criminal you need more than opinion....you need some facts.

I'm getting real weary of the race card, this time by Howard Dickenson. "All about the complexion" my ass. When will it ever stop? Let's just blame Trump on Bush. Oh wait ... wasn't it Obama that up until his last year of office, would not take any responsibility if things were wrong -- Obama, the whiner in chief for 8 long years. How quickly the Left forgets, or probably hypocrisy once more

While it is certainly possible that some Americans disliked Obama for the color of his skin it would be unfair to categorize all those who vehemently oppose his views on social and political issues as racist. If it were simply a question of skin color why didn't Hillary win? She was white also I believe. I have close family members of color whom I love and admire but I still believe Barack Hussein Obama was a Progressive Community Organizer and nothing more, who was in way over his head regardless of his color. You may believe, (the opinion of which I don't share) that Trump is also in over his head and you have the right to think that. However we did give Obama 8 years to prove how ineffective he was why not give Trump the same courtesy. I think this is where the genuine bias comes in inasmuch as like a true Progressive/ Socialist you just can't stand the thought of losing either an election or a chance to globalize the world.

All about the complexion Listen, you’re perfectly within your rights to have disagreed with Barack Obama’s policies or to have taken issue with his tactics. No one’s claiming he was a flawless politician or a perfect human being. But somehow I don’t think that’s what we’re talking about here. I think the thing President Obama did that really upset you was having a complexion that was far darker than you were ever comfortable with. I think the trump feels much better for that reason alone. Sad.

Mainstream media will jump on anything and magnify it out of context. President Trump had a very fruitful nine-day trip, like none has ever been accomplished by another president--especially the criminal Obama.
