File this under: Things The Media Will Not Tell You.

A new Rasmussen poll says that President Donald Trump has an approval rating of 50%… which is 5 points higher than his predecessor Barack Obama had at this point in his Presidency.  Surprised?  Me too.

If you watch the news, you would think that the nation is apoplectic over Trump’s presidency.  Turns out, it’s only the media who is freaking out.  The Gateway Pundit reminds us that,  “And this is while 90% of network media coverage has been negative of President Trump.”

Can you imagine how popular President Trump would be if the media fawned all over him like they did for Obama? Scratch that.  Perhaps this is why Americans are giving Trump the benefit of the doubt: you can tell a great deal about a person by his enemies.  The fact that the New York Times and the Washington Post think he’s doing a terrible job is enough of an endorsement for me.
