Topic: Media Research Center
It was embarrassing that anyone would continue to shill for Donald Trump after the Capitol riot he instigated. But Media Research Center writer Nicholas Fondacaro is clearly not afraid to embarrass himself.
In a Jan. 17 post, Fondacaro complained that MBC's Chuck Todd said of Trump's presidency that "it is hard to look at this as anything other than a failed presidency when you look at particularly the coronavirus in the last year and obviously the violent ending to his presidency." Fondacaro first retorted, "While Trump’s actions and the events of the last couple of weeks did taint his legacy and final days in office, there was a long list of accomplishments; even if Todd, a man who rents to Democrats, didn’t want to see them." That weird attack referenced a post by MRC executive Tim Graham claiming that Todd once rented a home he owned to Democratic Rep. Amy Klobuchar; apparently, Graham wants Todd to violate anti-discrimination laws by refusing to rent to a Democrat.
Then, Fondacaro started acting as if he was the payroll of former Truymp press seretary Kayleigh McEneny:
As noted by a list put out by the White House, the administration could brag about Operation Warp Speed which oversaw the fastest vaccine research and development ever. And before the coronavirus, “The unemployment rate reached 3.5 percent, the lowest in a half-century,” which included record low unemployment for many minority groups. Also, “The DOW closed above 20,000 for the first time in 2017 and topped 30,000 in 2020.” Plus, the tax cuts.
And aside from renegotiating the trade deal with Canada and Mexico (replacing NAFTA with the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement), the Trump administration had other trade and foreign policy accomplishments like energy independence and getting our NATO allies to give more money to our mutual defense.
Just to name a few.
Nothing says "media research" like coping and pasting from a press release in order to obscure Trump's failures. Of course, the MRC has acted throughout Trump's presidency as if it was an extension of his White House and his re-election campaign.
