Washington Post’s Chief Correspondent Trolls Republicans to Turn On President Trump

Written by  Aaron Klein

SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

The Washington Post‘s chief correspondent Dan Balz suggested it may become “necessary” for Republicans lawmakers to oppose President Donald Trump and act as a “check” on his executive power.

In the article published Tuesday, Balz warned that Republicans have arrived “at a moment of reckoning” following successive controversies dogging the Trump administration.

This after the Post on Monday published a news-making piece referencing “highly classified information” allegedly revealed by President Trump to Russian diplomats. It was followed up by a tweet from Washington Post Fact Checker columnist Glenn Kessler, who revealed there was “applause in the newsroom as the Russia-leak scoop breaks the Hollywood Access record for most readers per minute.”

In Balz’s seeming advocacy journalism piece, the Post correspondant wrote:

As President Trump has lurched from one crisis to another, Republicans have chosen a strategy of compartmentalization over confrontation, preferring to look away in hopes that the storm would pass. Now, after a pair of stunning revelations about the president, that approach may have run aground. For the GOP, this has become a moment of reckoning.

Balz referenced Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as FBI director and a subsequent New York Timesreport – denied by the White House – that Trump tried during a private meeting to convince Comey to drop an investigation into Michael Flynn, who was fired as national security adviser.

It's like they say, lie, then keep repeating the lie until everyone believes it. That is what the Democrats are doing and those dumb enough to accept fiction as fact do not deserve to live in this country, let alone have any say in how it is run.

As a person who voted for President Trump I can tell you that I am not unhappy with him or anything that he is doing. I am, however, unhappy with several others. Namely the DemocRATs that have tried to block every single thing that President Trump does. And the Republicans who are acting like the Dems hold the majority in the House and the Senate and are bending and bowing to every Liberal thing they say or want. ENOUGH! Start acting like we are in charge! Start supporting President Trump or come election time we will find someone who will!

"As President Trump has lurched from one crisis to another, Republicans have chosen a strategy of compartmentalization over confrontation" It's amazing how important they believe they are. Every crisis has been fabricated b.s. invented by them to try & distract him or keep him from working in hopes they'd find a way to impeach him before he could actually do anything.

Ignore the press that exhibits false or consistently biased reporting.
Clearly major "news media" have become 24 hour entertainment institutions rather than a public service.
In the transformation, they have established a dollar driven bottom line, competitive as a business rather than observers of society, and the necessity to preserve itself as first priority. Eventually self justification becomes the sole objective of such institutions.
Citizens, rely on information from sources which have no "skin in the game". Patronize sources and sponsors who do not seek to influence, rather merely to report when thereis,something to report rather than generate "breaking news" and lurid commentation.
Real news is stated concisely and without the necessity of interpreting middlemen and sexy middle anchor models.
It is YOUR task to deduce the value and relevance of real news. If you rely on the commentators of today, you will sell out your own values.
They know that. You are defaulting in supporting them.

The title of the article was miss printed. It should have read " The chief correspondent for the Washington Compost is a troll and a lying piece of dog shit" Now that's a true statement for the press. Print this you worthless ass hole.

I agree with you, the Washington Post, is nothing but, 'lies and trash'. Trying to destroy
our president. Besides that, they are ILLEGAL lovers, and did, at one time have employees,
that were ILLEGAL, and 'bragged', about being ILLEGAL. Don't know if ILLEGALS are
still employed there.

All of the people in Congress are their knees in prayer that our President fails, how sad for this man & our great nation. He has had zero support from anyone since he was sworn in to office. He has Trump haters in his own inner circle that leaks everything to their buddies in congress & the liberal news media.

Memo to Dan Balz: As an Independent, I stand 100% behind President Trump! Every crisis to date has been instigated by MSM misrepresenting, distorting or lying about basic facts! While I strongly support a free press in a democracy; when it becomes so corrupted, unethical, dishonest, unfair, unbalanced, unfree and have truly failed to inform people, you lose your right to be a press!! By the way, let me know when we can see some real sources versus an anonymous and another LIE!

I just saw a whole bunch of New York Times and Washington Posts lining the dog cages and cat litter pans at a local no kill animal shelter. They had to remove them because the animals even refused to use them.

The Washington Post is just another piece of Left-wing Liberal trashy propaganda. Anyone who reads it, or worse, BELIEVES it, is either a moron or has been brain washed. It is one of the WORST publications (and I use the term lightly) available on a daily basis. It's good for only two things: lining the bottom of a cage (bird cage, reptile cage, etc.) or for potty training your dog!

It's not even good enough for "lining the bottom of a cage (bird cage, reptile cage, etc.) or for potty training your dog!". However the damage it does is huge. I feel so indignant that the nation destroying left wingers are doing these unthinkable harm to the president and taking away his time and energy to make our country great again.

There is a GREAT new news channel - It is called ONE AMERICA NEWS - on channel THREE FORTY SEVEN ......all NEWS - not all that 'half 'n half' and negative - no 'false news ' stuff .....try it .....

Balz should be taught a lesson in civility.

In its day, it used to be a champion among newspapers. Unfortunately, like many of its cousins, it has become a rag, trying to stay alive by scrabbling after raw meat. Rather than pursuing meaningful journalism, it has sunk to the level of the Wacky World Weekly. I'm ashamed that they feel they must attempt a coup-like image to stay in business versus something meaningful.

President Trump is not going to dwindle into the past in a whim, neither are the People that voted for him; you can take that to the bank. Many People are aware of how dangerous the communists are, ask JFK and many recent additions.. Please do not take the Americans lightly, they put their lives on the line whenever the Country needs it and all I can tell you is that there are not a hell-of-a-lot of them in DC.

Investigate all Democrats. Let the DEA, the IRS, the FCC, and the FBI investigate all democratic leaders. Keep them in court defending themselves. Keep them in the news for being investigated. After all they MAY be guilty. They COULD be guilty of some crime. Make them happy.....investigate them, arrest them, indict them, and prosecute them, and convict them! Yea!

We do not believe all of that garbage that the Washington Post and CNN, ABC NBC put on TV so don't waste your time we are behind Trump. He is sure a far cry better than the Clintons that you wanted back in office. Trump is not going away and we do not believe all of your lies so get a life.

Much ado about nothing. They have become masters at the art of accusation. Makes no difference if it's true or not. Honesty is irrelevant as long as their objective is accomplished. Hang in there Pres. Trump. The forces of darkness don't play fair, but don't give in.

President Trump don't let these idiots get to you, they have nothing to go on so they have to make things up, to pump up there egos, the Democrats have to say anything because Trump is going to put them in the category to drain the swamp. Put killer Hillary, Bill the Obama's and his Muslim brotherhood administration in prison. Trump needs to get any of Obama's hold overs out of his administration and not let Obama team distroy our country. Do it now
