Report: Trump Preparing to Oust Do-Nothing Immigration Dove Kirstjen Nielsen From DHS
President Trump told Fox News on Friday morning he's "proud" because he took down the Bush and Clinton dynasties despite dishonest intelligence agencies "plotting against" his election.
"I'm actually proud because I beat Clinton dynasty," Trump told Fox News's Steve Doocy during an interview on the White House lawn. "I beat the Bush dynasty."
"Now I guess, hopefully I'm in the process of beating very dishonest intelligence because, what they did was incredible, and a real insult to millions of people that voted in that election," Trump said.

STEVE DOOCY, FOX & FRIENDS: You know, the IG report came out yesterday. The FBI looked bad.Trump unquestionably saw this interview with Seymour Hersh on CNN Wednesday:
Hersh, who is anti-Trump, praised Trump for taking down the Bush and Clinton dynasties and said he's crushing the media as evidence by his poll numbers rising despite unprecedented hostility.
"He's going up in ratings," Hersh told CNN's Don Lemon. "I don't see the Democratic party doing anything but basically running sort of as Hillary did, running against him for the last two months against him in the last two months of the campaign. And I'm not sure if I'm not in the major city in America, I'm not sure -- this guy is different. And I think people are tired of politicians and he appeals for a lot of reasons that maybe we don't all understand, I certainly don't understand him. He's got 48%, 47% of the people. He appeals to them. There's something about him. This is a guy that took down 13 Republicans with a history of more than 200 years of political life."
Hersh said the media should calm the hell down as they're playing into Trump's hand by being totally hysterical at all times.
"I sometimes think that we underestimate Trump but that's just my opinion," Hersh said. "I always like to tack the other way, I guess. But it seems to me that the news media, I always view disliking Trump is like catnip for American audiences. It seems obviously television is doing much better... you guys are getting better ratings, the New York papers and 'The Washington Post,' they are getting more audience and going after Trump is really good news."
"...there was a time when the media was trusted. You go back to the old days of networks and those days are long gone. I always felt like when I worked at the 'New York Times' what we wrote was trusted. We now have a situation where a lot of people tune in to what they like and don't listen to what they don't like. It's good for cable television on both sides. For FOX News and for MSNBC and CNN, you guys. You've got great ratings. You're making money. ... I think 'The New York Times' every quarter says it's picked up another 200,000 subscriptions because they're very critical of Trump. And so we have this notion if you don't like Trump, you're going to go here. If you like Trump, you're going to go somewhere else. So, where is the middle ground? Where is the media that is skeptic? Where is the media that whatever they say will have some standing, it's not going to be tuned out by 40% of the people, whatever percentage."
"We're playing his game, that's what bothers me," Hersh said.
He doesn't seem to realize the big names like CNN and the New York Times tried to moderate their tone after Trump's election but saw their viewership and readership plummet while the more hysterical publications saw their numbers shoot through the roof.
They gave up on moderating their tone after about one week and it's been constant hysteria ever since. So-called liberals like Rachel Maddow are now out bashing Trump for trying to make peace with North Korea and Democrats like Nancy Pelosi are defending MS-13 as angels of god.
Note, any time these old media hands say the media used to be "trusted" and we used to have a "middle ground," that just means they were able to set the narrative and determine what is truth -- irrespective of reality.
The divide which is occurring is with those who still accept the lies of the controlled media versus those who are waking up to how they've been creating fake history and lying to the American public for the last 100 years.
