With two sides to every story, Trump has made is comments clear. The president has denied the allegations made about his language, however, he did admit the discussion was rough and F-bombs were thrown. But not all the foul language was made by Donald Trump alone. The ravishing media is out for blood.
It is just as likely they are exaggerating everything about the POTUS, and the media will shut down America before they try to irritate us. The left is starting to put their fists up as they overplay their hand on the take on Trump in 2020. However, Democrats have absolutely no problem with the media indulging in their fantasies.
Yesterday Chris Mathews had on McAuliffe to help the former Clinton bagman stake his position for 2020 as the tough guy to beat Trump.
“You would have to pick him up off the floor,” McAuliffe said of what he would do if Trump invaded his space like he did Hillary’s during a debate.
The Democrats are really in trouble in 2020 – quick name their best candidate to beat Trump.
Bernie Sanders? Liz Warren? Kamala Harris? Terry McAuliffe?
Good luck with that DNC.
A weak field to be sure and that may be why McAuliffe is acting all tough on any network that will have him.
Say you what you want about the Clinton machine, they weren’t stupid and they know how to play the game.
So expect the rest of the hapless Dems to follow Terry’s lead and don’t forget to laugh when they get all “tough” like Terry.

MATTHEWS: “Back to Trump, what he does is he seems to have an ability to intimidate his opponents. He takes people who are levelheaded like Jeb Bush and makes them look weak. He says, ‘low-energy Jeb,’ and it works. He refers to somebody as ‘Little Marco’ because he’s not as tall as he is, he finds anybody’s weakness and turns it into something is that destroys his opponent. I know Hillary’s a friend of yours and she’s a strong person, but he did that thing of leaning over her, in that weird Godzilla way in a debate. What would you do in a debate with him if he tried that? What would you do?”
McAULIFFE: “You would have to pick him up off the floor.”
MATTHEWS: “Okay. Okay, you mean, you’d deck him?”
McAULIFFE: “Listen, this guy got in my space, you want to get in my space, I’ve always said, Chris, you punch me, I’m going to punch you back twice as hard. And it wouldn’t be hard to do it. This guy thinks he can intimidate everybody. It’s disgraceful and embarrassing. But I tell you, when we take him on, back in his face with the facts, don’t take anything from him and hit him back as hard as you possibly can. But if he ever came over and leaned on me and got in my space, that would be the last time Donald Trump ever did that, I promise you that.”
MATTHEWS: “You sound like an Irish-American politician. Terry McAuliffe, thank you for coming on ‘Hardball’ tonight. What a performance. That will go down — that will go viral, sir, I can tell you.”
