A popular political commentator claims that public anger over media bias in favor of former president Barack Obama and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton helped Donald Trump win the presidency.
Joe diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, contends that “the American people are not stupid. They watched this uncritical love affair” the media had with Obama, where “he got a pass for every lie, every failure, and the most bankrupt foreign policy since World War II.”
DiGenova asserts that networks such as CBS, ABC, NBC, and CNN were “so drunk with adulation that they abdicated their responsibilities.”
According to diGenova, the media overlooked Obama’s lack of transparency and dishonesty. The public noticed and began to support those candidates whom the press disliked. DiGenova characterized the mainstream media as “bootlicks.”
When remarking on Trump’s first 100 days in office, diGenova said he “is doing exactly the right thing and a great job. He’s solidified the Supreme Court for a generation.”
DiGenova noted that Trump’s “instincts are superb. The best example? Look at what he has done with communist China on North Korea. He has changed their behavior in a couple of months by the use of raw military power and the persuasiveness of his conversations over some of the best ice cream in history, apparently.”
The former prosecutor also had some advice for the president regarding personnel, contending that the gravest threat to Trump’s agenda is the Obama holdovers working within the federal government. DiGenova cites FBI Director James Comey as one example, calling him “dangerous,” and noting that Trump should have replaced him.
“The notion that a civil servant will not obey the lawful orders of the President of the United States is unacceptable in a free society. Civil servants are not self-actuating figures. The Democrats have empowered them to think they are indispensable. They are not,” diGenova said.
Regarding the accusations against the Trump team and their involvement with the Russians, diGenova said it is a “political fight to destabilize the Trump presidency, to bring his negatives up and try to delegitimize him.”
DiGenova also remarked on the evidence of the Obama administration’s politicization of government intelligence, calling for a thorough investigation and prosecution of those who unmasked individuals and leaked information—such as Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes, John Brennan and Obama himself. The former prosecutor would like to see a federal grand jury convened to get to the truth, reveal the leakers and punish the abuse of power.
DiGenova claims that, otherwise, America is moving quickly toward the KGB and Russian intelligence model where opponents of the state were monitored because of their political views.
