    He did a campaign rally. Somebody should tell little hands that the election is over and he won. Unfortunatelly.

      yd, if Hillary won then why isn't there a Russian Clinton collusion? BTW, the EC votes are the only one that determines the president, and Trump won that by a landslide. BTW, what was Hillary's campaign msg, I hate Trump!

    You know, I've noticed that there seems to be a lull in Trump coverage. Most stuff that gets reported on lately is the generic stuff... I think they're getting tired of publishing the same stuff over and over again about him.

    Really, would they twist their views any differently? Fox News is probably heralding it as a big deal; while lefty news is likely to just call Trump out again for having these 'please pat my back again I have such a weak ego' rallies.

    He only holds rallies for people who supported him in the past in order to keep the fire alive - like a pep rally, LoL! He knows just what to say to stir up your loyalty TO HIM while tearing down everyone else in this country that doesn't agree with him. Frankly, its getting old.

    Besides, Trumps poll ratings would probably go up if we heard less from or about him. Maybe you should be thankful.

    Did Obama hold rallies like Trump is?

      Obama & past presidents would ocassionally hold speeches at compaign rallies for their peers who were running for office throughout their tenure. But, Trump has to keep his special base whipped up or he would lose steam much faster than he is.

    its the only channell allowed in the white house, isnt it? I know its the only channell he goes on. You just dont get it, do you? Trump is the prez of rightwing world. He could care less about anyone else. Why should a channell do something for him when he spits on them? Calls them fake news,  mocks them, insults all of our intelligence.
    You have your prez. He has made it clear tbe rest of us have no reason to be alive.

    Greg, if you notice you didn't get your question answered. It was a series of deflections, and whining. The answer to your question is that Fox is the only not totally left biased of the MSM, and they report what the President of our Country is doing.

    Ironic, that the WH press is so concerned about the WH press conferences, but use it to malign anything that the president is doing. So the irony is they refuse to report on anything favorable to the president.

    BTW, the Electoral College was and is the only way to win the presidency. But, when the left, who for two years before the 2016 election was adamant that the EC and its 270 Electoral Votes could only be won by Hillary Rodham Clinton, then flips when Hillary loses the EC by a Landslide.

    I mention this because some commenters claim they believe Trump won the election, while others believe he lost the election because of losing the popular vote.

    BTW, How do those on the left have it both ways when they claim that winning the popular vote is the real process for winning the presidency, and yet still claim that Russia and Trump colluded to influence the election. Apparently, none of the people that were for Hillary before the election changed their vote, hence the win on popular vote.

    It is also evident, that Bernie Sanders supporters mostly voted independent, as they apparently felt cheated by the DNC and Hillary forcing Sanders from the primary.

    imo, people should at least try to answer the questions asked before they catapult to their mantras.

    del if u wish.

    Trump can only spew his nonsense when someone gives him the opportunity. If you also notice his tweets are slowing. Just a lull in what Trump perceives as a battle against the media and Fox being the only true conservative voice out there who do you think is going to help him? That's a no brainer there. But eventually, you give a Trump personality enough rope and they will run with excess slack and trip themselves up wink.

    Possibly because back in February, Trump banned certain media from the White House, including CNN, BBC and the Guardian. That was his prerogative as president. So the media may have been exercising their prerogative to not cover him. He certainly has ways of making friends and influencing people, doesn't he?
