Rita Cosby, former W.H. Press Secretary discusses liberal media and Trump

[Acknowledgement] Special thanks to Emmy Award-winning news correspondent, best selling author and talk show host – as well as friend of NWV news writer Jim Kouri and the National Association of Chiefs of Police – Rita Cosby for her invaluable help in getting the material for this news story.

On this Sunday morning’s “Rita Cosby Show” on WABC Radio in New York City, former George W. Bush White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer trained his dislike toward the liberal media, by noting that he’s never seen such hostility towards an incoming US President before and saying… “Donald Trump will go into office on Day One with a Trump Derangement Syndrome… When George Bush won after the recount, there was hostility, but it wasn’t this pronounced as now. It became even more pronounced as the Bush administration went along, to the point where it became that derangement syndrome.”

Fleischer continued, “You know Donald Trump is a fiery fellow. I mean he’s earned a piece of this. But I’ve never seen the left go so nuts, so early, so hard, and lament this, I regret this.” In regards to the divisiveness he’s seeing in the country, “I am a bit surprised by it. You know, you hope that at some point people are just gracious.”

Fleischer also predicts that incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will face very harsh treatment at the hands of the media. “It’s going to be very difficult, and it’s going to test his patience, and he’s going to need a healthy amount of patience because on the one hand he must represent the President, that’s his job. And on the other hand, he’s going to have to suffer daily being turned into a human piñata by the press corps, because that’s what they do. And that’s why it’s a burn-out job.”

Fleischer continued, “It’s going to be harder for Sean than it has been for almost all his predecessors, and that’s because of the media’s hostility to Donald Trump. The media has made no secret of its hostility to Donald Trump, and Donald Trump’s returned the favor. And so Sean is the man caught in the middle.”

In regards to how to make relations better, Mr. Fleischer suggested each side needed to make a move. “Donald Trump has his role to play in this as well. I think it is very important that Donald Trump engages in a civil fashion that can help bridge some of these wounds in our country, as he pledged to do in his 60 Minutes interview, and we need to hold his feet to the fire to make sure he does that. But it needs to be reciprocated as well by his political opponents.”
