Low five

A NY Daily News writer criticized the media for hyping the fake news story about a flubbed low-five attempt between President Donald Trump and the first lady Melania Trump at Ben Gurion airport in Israel on Monday.

Many biased observers concluded that Mrs. Trump rebuked the President because she no longer wants to be married to him.

But NY Daily News writer S.E. Cupp points out that, even CNN -- which is extremely biased -- acknowledged that the Trumps held hands minutes later on the tarmac.

Apologizing for giving the non-story more ink, Cupp wrote that, "The oxygen and print space" that media outlets have given Melania's hand flick "is astounding."

via NY Daily News -- Maybe the President and his wife had just had an argument. Maybe she thought protocol required no hand-holding. Maybe it was hot and his hand was sweaty. Who knows, but more importantly, who cares?

One can perhaps forgive entertainment outlets like People, but when serious media outlets ask you to believe their reporting that, say, Trump may have obstructed justice, or that Russia interfered with our elections, and then they give inordinate attention to a ridiculous and inconsequential moment meant solely to embarrass the President and his family, they shouldn't be surprised when an already distrusting public says no.

    “The oxygen and print space”

    How old is this reporter? Print space? Nobody reads squat in print. It went viral. That has zero to do with print anything. He needs to get his ass out the stone ages of news and step into the digital world.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    he was my fave Bond

  • Alwayshonest

    Yes sandra
    What we can clearly see with our eyes is not real but what you mango and fox and friends say is. Sure

  • Courtney Wheeler

    ummm but she really did swat his hand. that is never a loving gesture. try again <3

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Whatever. When he stops lying, stops being shady and dishonest, and then releases his tax returns, maybe then he'll start to earn people's respect.

  • chris

    Let me know when black folks rioting in predominantly white city.

  • Guess Who

    BTW, tell about the other NY Daily news story written with the title, "SEE IT: Melania once again refuses to hold President Trump's hand after arrival in Rome."
    The First Couple is really not loving their first foreign trip.

    For the second day in a row, Melania Trump public snubbed President Trump when he tried to hold her hand upon arriving in a new country — this time, in Rome.

    The couple touched down in Rome on Tuesday and waved to the media and spectators after stepping out of Air Force One.

    The President then tried to grab his wife’s hand — and she pulled away her arm with the reflexes of a woman who has been through this many, many times.

    Trump settled on putting his hand on her backside.

    The snub comes the day after the First Lady swatted away her husband’s hand when they arrived in Israel as part of President Trump’s first foreign travels in office, which is apparently not working wonders for his marriage.

    I just saw the video of this. THERE AIN'T NO MISTAKING HER NOT WANTING HIS TUNA SMELLING HAND ON HER.

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Sir Roger said that? Wow.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    You know, I find it real funny how folks talked so much shyt about the Obamas' fist bump. I recall it being called a "terrorist fist jab", but are trying to defend this chick hitting him with the FOH wave. Yea, ok.

  • hottlanta

    Ain't no telling where his cat smelling hands have been. I was ROTFLMAO when they said how TIRED he was after 2 days and his wife excuse me daughter Ivanka had to take his place and make a speech. Didn't he saw Hilary didn't have stamina. Karma is a bytch. They tweeted and said that after he made that speech in Israel.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Of course, if this was Barack and Michelle Obama, the Trump-trolls would have been all over the internet telling us about their "bad body language" and how much their marriage is on the rocks etc..

  • hottlanta

    She didn't want to take the trip. She wanted to stay in New York and bang that phune Secret Service body call in the towers. She knows when she gets back home she gotta stay in the White House with him. She like Florida from Good Times, DAYUM DAYUM, DAYUM.

  • Renee26

    Right...Goodnight Mr. Moore

  • Soda

    He later claimed to have been misquoted. Funny thing, not being a Bond fan, I only remember him because of Amy Winehouse:
    By the time I'm out the door,
    You tear men down like Roger Moore
    I cheated myself,
    Like I knew I would,
    I told you I was trouble,
    You know that I'm no good.

  • teather

    I say the same I just began to read. If this were Michelle and Barack, the story would be true and there'd be no problem. I'm beginning to see what they're talking about with this site.

  • Renee26

    They said it was a prank...I haven't seen it but I think it still happens (lynchings) and they try to spin it as suicides. I hope it's fake though

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    I hope so! It just seemed so real with her drooling out her mouth..I can't..

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Im a Bond fanatic but dropped out of watching them bc I hated Daniel Craig as Bond. Trying to sell me a blonde haired blue eyed Bond. Last one I saw was Die Another Day. And for the record Pierce Bronsan aint English either Mr. Moore. He is IRISH.

  • Faithz

    Exactly right about that.

  • Renee26

    Maan...with so many missing people out here we may never know unless the girl herself posts an announcement that it was fake

  • Lucy

    Don't believe your lying eyes!

  • Faithz

    Everybody isn't trying to make this a Issue, People with eyes can see that they are not walking together Trump is ahead of her, by a few steps and shes wearing heels and high one's at that...They look Nice,,,Sooo
    stop trying to start chiiiiit about what Others think, we are not all seeing eye to eye on this. I am for one see this as a non story, and I appreciated The Obamas, who has been Trashed since day on, and still getting treated unfairly.

  • Faithz

    Omg You are trying to start the next War of Words with Trump for sure, We all know things are in to Off Position With them in the bedroom., Just Saying.

  • Faithz

    She was trying to see where she was walking so as to not trip, I don't think she saw his hand reaching for her, when he reached out he touched nothing but air, Just saying.

  • Faithz

    Omg!!

  • Faithz

    Now this is very true.

  • Lucy

    He takes Finasteride for hair loss. He cant get it up!

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Melania didn't want to hold Trump's small fat hand. You can try to spin it whatever way you want, but I know what I saw.

  • NeverSurprised

    News outlets that are supposed to be "objective" have turned the profession into a joke. My son just graduated with his BA in sports journalism and we were discussing grad schools the other evening. We live in New York and I mentioned that the Columbia School of Journalism was the best in the field. Then I had to stop myself. USED to be the best. USED to teach objective reporting. USED to turn out graduates who reported the FACTS while striving to keep their personal biases out of the story.

    I have no idea what they're teaching in journalism school these days, but my guess is that it's something along the lines of -- everything liberal is good, everything conservative is bad, strongly promote all democratic politicians, strongly condemn all republican politicians, and run all of your copy (draft stories) past the nearest gay person before you send anything to print. How else to explain this farce that passes for "objective reporting" these days.

  • Faithz

    HMMM Don't know about Trump they just landed in Rome, and He's holding his tie instead of Melanie hand coming off the plane.Smh.

  • hottlanta

    We all know that women follow good dyck. They get selfish and territorial when it ain't around because they don't want no one else to get it.The minute he was going to DC she would have been right behind him. She said BYE and put on some Sade, took out some wine,danced around the room and didn't care who got it.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    They are not use to being around each other this long LOL! This is Trump and Melania

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    When a woman decides a marry a dude old enough to be her daddy, then I guess she's got to be prepared for that. She could have been with a man her own age with less money, but... this is what she wanted.

  • hottlanta

    Is he walking straight or wobbling? Because according to his peeps he is tired and that is why he slurred his speech in Israel. He a coupla of more days to go. I bet he is seeing pictures of Barak playing golf in Italy and saying I wish that was me.

  • Naomi

    They still teach you to be objective, get facts and minimize harm. But it's the NEWS OUTLETS that hire you who have their own agenda. I left a job because the editor was SOOOO completely biased and that's not what I was taught.

  • MzKeriBabee

    Let this be a SIGN to all who are all aboard the Trump Train... His wife DOES NOT like him at all and it is painfully obvious and there is a REASON why...

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    This that we sleep in separate wings of the house and one is away on business or vacation when the other is home type relationship. That's why she was staying in NY for the "kid" so you can continue school ?

  • Christopher Gibson

    If this were the Obamas, the carpet muncher that runs this blog would be posting all kinds of "body language" posts and more bulls**t but because it's her messiah, it was a "low five"....F.O.H.

  • cd cd

    .when they lie, its always easiest to attack the "media". When was the last time a comment section was mentioned. They wont because this is where they run their operation.

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    Exactly, this was not a fluke or an accident. She does not want that mofo to touch her!

  • wonderwoman

    He's tired, but yet he said Hilary doesn't have the stamina to be president. This is his first trip outside of Florida, and he has only been there for what 3 days. Seems like he doesn't have the stamina.

  • i troll it like i see it

    True!!!! And Melania just blew him off two days in a row. now, there is no denying it or calling it a "low five," which was ridiculous of Sandra to begin with. Melania Trump is pissed and doesn't give a crap who knows.

  • jessica

    Sandra you always talk about body language what is this telling you? An attempted low five? Give us a break.

  • iWasteTime

    I guess her doing it again today, in Rome isn't news either huh?!?!

  • NovemberFling

    That was definitely a "you bet not touch me mothafcka" swat. Ya'll can play Melania up as some refined class act as much you'd like, but the truth is this heffa is an uncouth hooligan straight outta the Yugoslavian slums of Eastern Europe. Those broads don't care about nothing but their dividends and dollas - they wouldn't or couldn't BUY class if you paid them. Those Eastern Euro tricks are about that gully sh*t in public, so we might as well brace ourselves for more public displays of matrimonial disgust on Melania's behalf for the remaining 5 months Dump is in office.

  • Clopretty

    she looks so sad and lost!

  • Rosalie Parker

    And how does she knows it's fake news? The only thing fake is her stumping for the Trumps.

  • Quitedeliteful

    The problem with Trump is that he doesn't value women. You would never think they are married if you didn't already know. When meeting the Obamas before the Inauguration, he leaves the car and Melania is left walking up by herself, ignored. He gets off of Air Force One and keeps moving full steam ahead. Trump wants to be seen as a leader, not as a loving, doting husband. He doesn't give a damn about his wife so I don't blame Melania for swatting his hand away or 'fixing' her hair instead of taking his clammy hand. Theirs seems to be a loveless union. I bet the sight of him sickens her...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Setting a really bad example for his son too. Sad.

  • Wile E. Coli

    It is 2017. Feminists did that.

  • dontgetblocked

    President Trump treats his women far better than most men. They live in luxury and opulence.

  • dontgetblocked

    That's her daddy. That woman has lead a fabulous life.

  • dontgetblocked

    He'll be okay if he focuses on sports. But real news no longer exists.

  • Ryan

    It really is. A bunch of damned conservative crybabies. Yeah she swatted his hoof-like hand away. And it was funny!! People get mad about the dumbest ish.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Hey Mirs

  • Wile E. Coli

    "People get mad about the dumbest ish."

    Oh I dunno. I am not mad about you.

  • Ryan

    Oh goody. ?

  • Joi Calloway

    You are very right! Its easy for Trump to shower his wife with expensive gifts he is a millionaire. Which is why she married him in the first place. What would show they have a special relationship is for him to show respect, be courteous and open doors etc for his bride. Instead he treats her like just another groupie he is paying for.

  • Faithz

    Yea his hair is up , and other things are down, down. that's why the Misses want hold in to his dang hand., Lol.

  • Faithz

    Yes While the Camera can only snap what it see's.

  • Faithz

    I Hear You, make me think Melania was perhaps gold

  • Mrs. (Asexual) Elmo

    Ha..They are acting like a normal married couple on the verge of divorce.?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Absolutely! I agree that His wife has a life that others can't even imagine. The problem is all of that luxury and opulence means nothing if there is no love or emotional support in a relationship. Trump appears to treat her as a prized possession as opposed to someone that he cares for and cherishes.... I can understand why she married him though, it's hard to walk away from all of those billions...

  • Quitedeliteful

    She probably thought that he would croak and she wouldn't have to deal with him for very long. But Trump is too ornery to check out of this world any time soon. She's stuck in the cold relationship for god-knows-how-long. Whelp, it's what she signed up for...
