NBC News Just Got Mad At Trump For The SILLIEST Reason Yet…

We have seen the liberal left get mad at President Trump for some absurd things.

The following example from NBC News might take the cake…

From Breitbart:

NBC published an article titled “Trump Now Uses an iPhone — Despite Once Calling for an Apple Boycott” to attack the president for switching from his potentially vulnerable Android handset to an iPhone.

The article begins by directly stating that the reason for President Trump’s switch to the Apple-made handset is for security reasons: “President Donald Trump is finally using an Apple iPhone, despite once calling for a boycott of the company’s products, after concerns that the Android handset he was reportedly using was unsecured.”

President Trump, of course, has in the past used the products of many companies with whom he disagrees, directly naming Coca-Cola at one point in a tweet.

President Trump’s decision to use a more secure mobile phone seems to be a step in the right direction considering the issues surrounding cyber security that were raised during the election. However, NBC appears to cast President Trump’s decision to better protect himself from cyber attacks as a sign of hypocrisy.

I guess NBC would prefer the president not keep the important information on his phone safe?

Very strange…

  1. Breaking news…Obama put Dijon on his burger-

    During the May 6 edition
    of her radio show, Ingraham said of Obama: “I don’t even like the way
    the man orders a hamburger. … What kind of man orders a cheeseburger
    without ketchup but Dijon mustard?” She later added of Obama: “See, he
    was trying to do this whole thing with Biden — ‘We’re like the regular
    people, we’re like every other guy, you know, with our — on our lunch
    break, we’re going to go grab a burger, two guys, two bros.’ ” Like
    Hannity, Ingraham played a clip from a Grey Poupon commercial in which
    an actor asked, “Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” Ingraham
    then remarked: “That would have been more appropriate.” Ingraham’s
    remarks were highlighted by The Fox Nation on May 7:

    • Following President Obama’s May 5 visit to Ray’s Hell Burger in Arlington, Virginia, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Rush Limbaugh Show
      guest host Mark Steyn criticized Obama as an elitist because he ordered
      a burger with “spicy mustard” or “Dijon mustard.” Hannity claimed that
      Obama ordered a “fancy burger” with a “very special condiment,” while
      Steyn asserted Obama is trying “to enlighten us” through his order.
      Ingraham asked of Obama: “What kind of man orders a cheeseburger without
      ketchup but Dijon mustard? … The guy orders a cheeseburger without
      ketchup? What is that?” In their discussions of Obama’s burger order,
      Hannity, Ingraham, and Steyn all referenced a Grey Poupon commercial featuring actors portraying wealthy British men expressing desire for the mustard.

      During the May 6 edition
      of his Fox News program, Hannity said: “[A]s you all know, President
      Obama is a real man of the people. And yesterday he dropped by a popular
      Virginia restaurant to grab a burger with his pal [Vice President] Joe
      [Biden]. Now, the Gateway Pundit blog pointed out that plain old
      ketchup, well, it didn’t quite cut it for the president. Now take a look
      at him ordering his burger with a very special condiment. … Dijon
      mustard? I think the president watched just a little bit too much
      television as a kid.” Hannity then played a portion of a Grey Poupon
      commercial and commented, “I hope you enjoyed that fancy burger, Mr.
      President.” In the May 5 post
      Hannity referenced, the Gateway Pundit wrote of Obama and Biden:
      “They’re just two ordinary metrosexual guys going out for a burger …
      Obama and Biden, two ordinary guys, go out for a sandwich and Obama asks
      for Dijon mustard at Joe’s Hell Burger.” The blog added: “I hear it’s
      delish with arugula lettuce. Yum-Yum.”

      • the May 7 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show, Steyn said
        of Obama’s condiment selection: “He’s amazing, Obama. This coverage —
        he’s a regular guy. He eats a hamburger with Dijon mustard — Dijon
        mustard. John Kerry couldn’t get away with that stuff, but he makes it
        seem like just like a regular thing to do. Now there’s — I see that
        some of the left-wing commentators are saying, ‘Why are people making a
        fuss about the Dijon mustard?’ but that’s just an example of the way
        Obama is able to enlighten us.” Later in the program, Steyn stated: “I
        deeply resent Barack Obama crashing in as the Grey Poupon spokesperson,
        because that has been the lifesaver for non-American voiceover artists
        in this country for years — getting the gig doing the Grey Poupon
        voiceover.” He added: “[I]f you can’t outsource Grey Poupon to
        foreigners, what can you outsource? And instead now he’s apparently the
        big Grey Poupon spokesperson, putting it all — putting it all over his
        hamburger. Barack Obama — that was — what was that? That was
        yesterday, Barack Obama had a hamburger. I don’t know what he may do
        today to prove — to pass for human.”

        From the May 6 edition of Fox News’ Hannity:

        HANNITY: And finally tonight, as you all know, President
        Obama is a real man of the people. And yesterday he dropped by a popular
        Virginia restaurant to grab a burger with his pal Joe. Now, the Gateway
        Pundit blog pointed out that plain old ketchup, well, it didn’t quite
        cut it for the president. Now take a look at him ordering his burger
        with a very special condiment.

        OBAMA [video clip]: All right. I’m going to have a — just your basic
        cheddar cheeseburger, medium well. I just want mustard, no ketchup. If
        you’ve got like a spicy mustard or something like that, or a Dijon
        mustard, something like that.

        HANNITY: All right, Dijon mustard? I think the president watched just a little bit too much television as a kid:

        [begin video clip]

        IAN RICHARDSON (actor): Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?

        PAUL EDDINGTON (actor): You mean the mustard?

        RICHARDSON: Yes, would you have any?

        EDDINGTON: Would I, or do I?

        RICHARDSON: Both, actually.

  2. rom the May 6 edition of Talk Radio Network’s The Laura Ingraham Show:

    ANDREA MITCHELL (MSNBC correspondent) [audio clip]: And
    this just in: What you’re watching is two guys going out for lunch. It’s
    Ray’s burgers, which is an institution in Arlington, Virginia, and the
    president, the vice president, I gather, they paid — each paid for
    their own and also chipped in and bought for the press pool, the small
    group that accompanied them.

    INGRAHAM: Cheap dates.

    OBAMA [audio clip]: I’m going to have a — just your basic cheddar cheeseburger, medium well. I just want mustard, no ketchup.

    INGRAHAM: What?

    OBAMA [audio clip]: If you’ve got like a spicy mustard or something like that, or a Dijon mustard, something like that.

    RICHARDSON [audio clip]: Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?

    INGRAHAM: I don’t even like the way the man orders a hamburger. You’re listening to The Laura Ingraham Show.
    What kind of man orders a cheeseburger without ketchup but Dijon
    mustard? See, he was trying to do this whole thing with Biden — “We’re
    like the regular people, we’re like every other guy, you know, with our
    — on our lunch break, we’re going to go grab a burger, two guys, two
    bros.” No —

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And a bottled water, what?

    INGRAHAM: Well, we’re gonna — we’re two bros hanging out together
    all right, man? How was your day? I love you, man. I love you. The guy
    orders a cheeseburger without ketchup? What is that?

    OBAMA [audio clip]: I mean, that’s nice.

    INGRAHAM: What? I’m watching this, and I think, OK, the press corps
    is so easily bought off. You just buy them a couple of dirty old burgers
    and they’re fine. “Oh, did you know the president treated?” First of
    all, journalistic ethics — are we supposed to be treated by the
    president and the vice president?

    And does this question ever pop into your minds like it did mine
    yesterday? Do these men not have anything better to do than go on a road
    trip to Arlington for a photo-op — which is done for one reason and
    one reason only. You know why it’s done? Check out this last line of The Washington Post
    piece: “Bonnie Cosby, 51, a technology consultant who picked up burgers
    on her way home from work, opined: ‘It shows that he’s in touch with
    the people, and that he’s not up in the ivory tower. He’s a real person
    — with a burger.’ ” No, the —

    RICHARDSON [audio clip]: Pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?

    INGRAHAM: That would have been more appropriate, would not have — of
    him to go right through the drive-through? Took him a while to figure
    out what he was going to order. Didn’t he seem to hesitate a while? It’s
    just like when he was trying to find the church, buy the puppy, figure
    out if — when life begins with the Rick Warren question?

    I would laugh if the woman said, “Sir, what would you like?” and he
    said, “Oh, that’s above my pay grade. I can’t, I can’t — well, I’ll get
    back to you on that. I gotta talk to Michelle first.”

  3. pay grade. I can’t, I can’t — well, I’ll get back to you on that. I gotta talk to Michelle first.”

    From the May 7 edition of broadcast of Premiere Radio Networks’ The Rush Limbaugh Show:

    STEYN: It was wonderful watching the coverage of the
    hamburger visit. He’s amazing, Obama. This coverage — he’s a regular
    guy. He eats a hamburger with Dijon mustard — Dijon mustard. John Kerry
    couldn’t get away with that stuff, but he makes it seem like just like a
    regular thing to do. Now there’s — I see that some of the left-wing
    commentators are saying, “Why are people making a fuss about the Dijon
    mustard?” but that’s just an example of the way Obama is able to
    enlighten us.

    […]

    STEYN: But people were talking a lot about the Obama hamburger and
    this business of him ordering the Dijon mustard, and ordering the Grey
    Poupon. And I have to say, speaking as a foreigner, that I deeply resent
    Barack Obama crashing in as the Grey Poupon spokesperson, because that
    has been the lifesaver for non-American voiceover artists in this
    country for years — getting the gig doing the Grey Poupon voiceover.

    You know, you do the, “Try the new Grey Poupon squeeze, one of life’s
    simpler pleasures.” And the idea that Barack Obama now is going to be
    collaring — it’s in-sourcing, in effect. This is nothing like — the
    Grey Poupon endorsement is something — if you can’t endorse — if you
    can’t outsource Grey Poupon to foreigners, what can you outsource? And
    instead now he’s apparently the big Grey Poupon spokesperson, putting it
    all — putting it all over his hamburger. Barack Obama — that was —
    what was that? That was yesterday, Barack Obama had a hamburger. I don’t
    know what he may do today to prove — to pass for human.

  4. This just goes to prove that the left, both in and out of the media, have nothing. They have nothing of substance, so they reach for the obscure and the ridiculous in order to try and make themselves heard.
