Reagan’s Daughter Calls Trump A ‘Dictator’

June 28, 2017

Reagan's-DaughterRonald Reagan’s daughter says new restrictions on how the media can cover White House press briefings is a consequence of President Donald Trump trying to be a dictator.

“The new White House tactic of barring cameras from the press briefings is pure bullying,” Patti Davis, Reagan’s youngest daughter, said Tuesday on her Facebook page.

“It’s Donald Trump acting on his love of dictators, and trying to be one.”

In recent weeks, the White House has held fewer press briefings and banned cameras from televising some of them. In those, only audio, or in some cases note-taking, has been allowed.

    Does anyone else remember when Obama blocked Fox news from some of the meetings and even the democrats raised h about that.

  • dmttbt says:

    Is this the daughter who joined in on a few bank robberies and didn’t go to jail? Oh yes that was Patti Hearst. Maybe both did but the fact that is a question should tell you how much trust to put in her.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    She is not a conservative. So she can just go away.

  • Gregg Jensen says:

    So what?

    Same goes for whatever Ron Reagan Junior thinks.

    I was a liberal Democrat back when RR was POTUS. Young and ignorant, I was influenced by my hippie friends, those dope smoking, marginally-productive smug saviors of the world. Now, I regret not giving RR a fair hearing and assessment because, as I have learned since 2004, he was a humble and exemplary man.

    I have also learned that generally, Liberals/Progressives/Democrats are shortsighted, self-serving, incompetent liars. Think of Hillary, Barack, Schumer, Pelosi, Boxer, De Blasio, Jerry Brown, Reid….

    What is it with these Reagan kids. She is by Jane Wyman and not Nancy, and said unkind things about her father. Reagan a great man, and president. Like President Donald Trump. Unlike Donald Trump who has a beautiful respectful well mannered family, something’s wrong with Ronald Reagan children. She obviously does not know what she’s talking about. She looks spaced out talks irrationally and behaves oddly. Pity. She puts a black mark on the Reagan name . I think cameras not allowed at press briefings and keep these ill mannered people off tv is brilliant. A professional news organization does not depend on briefings for their news source. They were intended for small outlets to have access. This Reagan child does not have a clue. What does she do for a living? Live off daddy’s inheritance?

    1. smilee says:

      She is Nancy’s daughter. The oldest daughter was Jane’s daughter. Trump is big insult of Reagan and not likely he would approve of trump. You do not believe much in the freedom of the press do you, one thing for sure trump does not. The founders would not approve of triump as he is all they sere not. . Your so confused!

    Evidently good genes do not always travel down. What a dope!

    1. Mike N says:

      If I remember correctly Patti Davis was always a renegade. The fact that she is Reagan’s daughter does not mean that she reflects his policies.

      1. Askjrsk says:

        She is an embarrassment. Hope daddy left her lots of money. McDonalds would fire her, too.

      2. Retired says:

        Did she ever reflect his views ????

        1. Mike N says:

          Not to my knowledge. I believe that she was always a thorn in his side.

          1. Askjrsk says:

            I would doubt daddy left her anything. I believe she was always a trouble maker, mean mouthed mean spirited. I’m sure he shed more than one tear as she disrupted family gatherings Holidays and celebrations. She has called her father far worse than a dictator, imagine if that’s what she did to someone she does not know? What would this mean evil spirited person do to one who loved and cared for her? President Trump must be respected for the work he did to have such a fine family. Any one can have such an ungrateful obnoxious self entitled spoiled brat like Patti Davis. Yuk.

        2. Askjrsk says:

          She must have broken her fathers heart more than once. This bitter ungrateful mean self centered obnoxious loud trouble maker. One can bet she made Ronald’s life miserable. I hope he didn’t leave her a dime. She calls president Trump names, who has an exemplary family and she does not know, imagine what she has called her father who loved her, and tried to nurture her? She must have worked hard to make him miserable as she is. I can imagine how many times she must have broken his heart. Patti Davis is trash.

    2. Askjrsk says:


    3. smilee says:

      Daddy would not have approved either many many good republicans don’t either,

    4. Sharo says:

      Exactly! And just where does it say that the WH even has to have briefings?? If it was up to me, I would have shut it down months ago. Who does the press think they are anyway?? Oh I know, they think they are the elite, untouchable, deliverers of knowledge. NOT! There is no way any decent person should have to put up with daily insults, innuendos, character shredding, and just plain disrespect that poor Spicer, Hucabee, and others have been subject to.

    5. Askjrsk says:

      It is heartbreaking when ones children turn out de mean and evil. President Trump is blessed to have such fine children. Speaks volumes.

  • maxx says:

    This is the only one of two children that Reagan admitted he was “very ashamed of their political ideology”. Seems Hollywierd had more power over the kids than Dad.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Not President Trumps. Patti can’t flip a hamburger at McDonalds. Concept is beyond her.

  • American Me says:

    All our so called free press does is LIE about the President.I don’t blame him for restricting them.I would have done the same and probably more.Let them stew a while and think about their actions.Probably won’t help.What is the difference?You can’t believe anything they say anyway.

    1. Askjrsk says:


  • bobnstuff says:

    Ms. Reagan is right, limiting how the press does it’s job isn’t good for the country and reflects on the insecurities of our President. He fears the free press and thinks that by restricting them he can control what they say, How is that working out?

    1. Bob says:

      So you have no problem if the press lies about the President as long as it fits their editorial narrative and the person in office is “not my president”? CNN, AGAIN, had to retract stories that turned out to be untrue about this President. Same goes for the Washington Post. If a news agency is lying just to fit their narrative, as CNN has been caught admitting they do, why should they not be called on it and why should the Administration not call for them to stop? For the past 8 years there were constant calls for limiting Fox News and any other outlet that found fault with the previous administration, yet no complaints from the left. Why is that?

      1. maxx says:

        I believe Obozzo banished FOX solely due to their truthful coverage of the “usurper”. He also went after Cheryl Attkisson on another network because he tried to have her coverage of him squelched and she threatened to quit the network if she was stopped for reporting the facts.

        1. smilee says:

          He ignored Fox he did not abandon them.

      2. bobnstuff says:

        If the White House wants to have the media report what they say then having cameras recording it is in their best interest. You might notice that Fox entertainment wasn’t limited by the last administration even when they were caught in lies. Fox interviewed Obama a number of times and had full access like every other media group. It’s not the medias fault that Trump & Company can’t keep their story straight.

        1. Bob says:

          So, again, you have no problem when CNN broadcasts knowingly false reports as long as they are anti-Trump? You have no problem with the Washington Post using only “unnamed sources” to smear a President? You have no problem with the NY Times making false allegations the Gov Palin put a target on the face of Rep Giffords, causing some demented liberal to shoot her? I bet you think she should sue them, either. The media has always been biased against Republicans, this is a fact. It is also obvious that the media bias against this President is at it’s worst ever, yet folks still defend the media and claim it is unbiased.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            As far as the media smearing the President the President really needs no help since he does a pretty good job of doing it himself. Palins case will be thrown out of court.

          2. Bob says:

            You use a left leaning (bending) web site to prove a point? Next reference dailykoz. So you would have been perfectly okay if the press had continued to run with the stories about Obama’s ties to Solindra and how he made the decision to use government tax money to shore up a company he has an interest in, how he believed there were 57 states, how he got locked out of the White House after coming home from a political trip, and the host of other stories the Obama Admiration had squashed? What about Poedesta, Clinton’s campaign manager, and his close ties to Russia and Putin? And Palin WILL win because the NY Time admitted the story was contrary to their own internal standards AND was proved false 6 years ago.

          3. bobnstuff says:

            Trumps son bragged about getting money,” All they wanted” from Russians.

            95% of new business fail so why are you surprised that Solindra failed? All the media cover that story by the way. What the main stream media didn’t report were all the made up stuff from people like Rush.

            The idea if investing in renewable energy make a lot of sense and has paid off, look at the numbers of jobs created. If you don’t think the government should give money to businesses then explain Carrier’s $7 million that didn’t really save any jobs let along create any. There’s also that $4.5 billion a year we give to EXXON MOBLE.

            Palin as I say will never even make it into a court room. She can sue all she wants but she has to prove malleus and intent.

          4. Bob says:

            Are your eyes brown? You are so full of manure that they should be. Otherwise, you’re probably just a quart low.
            Solybdra was folded into another company that Obama made sure got the bail out money from the Feds, and to ensure Obama got his investment back. This was reported in several outlets, including CNN and CBS, but just once until it was squashed by the WH. I don’t mind the government investing in businesses, but picking winners and losers based on where your money is invested is wrong, and that is EXACTLY what was done there by the Obama WH.
            Palin’s suit will not only get heard, but she will win because there was intentional malice towards her in the story that had been proved false 6 years ago. You may not believe that but you probably thought Obama deserved the Nobel Prize simply because he was elected.

          5. bobnstuff says:

            Fake news stories from fake news sources. In Trump Obama put his money in a blind trust.

          9. smilee says:

            OH BOY there are a lot of republicans that do, trump is loyal to only trump and could end up being the destruction of the GOP. And what you calling bashing trump is merely telling the truth about him but you do not like truth being told about him very much do you?

          15. smilee says:

            Palin will lose that suit you wait and see and if you hate lies you would really hate Briefart and infowars as they go way beyond lies and actually 100% fabricate things, Why does that not bother you as you never mention that, it makes you look so phony. Bias is one thing and understandable but fabricating is 100% worse and you ignore thatl

          16. smilee says:

            They admitted it and all humans make mistakes, This was a mistake, Trump lies all the time and to date has ever admitted lying even when caught and proven. Why does one bother you and not the other? Unnamed sources does not mean fake news it only means it is not identified. These after all were the sources that brought out the truth about Nixon and more oftern than not have when all is said and done found to be true. This is why trump is so agitated about this as he fears truth big time. If the unidentified sources are truth that is not a smearing him that is them doing their jobs right. The WP has a long history of finding the truth though unidentified sources and they were the ones who brought out the truth bout Nixon. Your whole post is a fake!!

        2. Retired says:

          More lies from Mr. BullShitsky .

      3. smilee says:

        More problem caused by trump lying all the time! Good press always admits mistakes when thy make them, never seen trump do that have you. You call an awful lot of truth lies to. How about Briefart and infowars with their 100% fabrications , does that bother you? It should! You are so confused!

      4. smilee says:

        Most unidentified sources are creditable so most times not lies. Nixon said that to about the press all th time but all those unidentified sources later proved to be telling the truth, You cannot honestly call it fake news if it is true even if the source is not publicly known. They do not make it up like briefart and infowars and the like do, Trump calls anything that exposes the real trump as fake news. he is the loser they say he is and they should tell us those truths. Every news outlet makes mistakes from time too time the honest ones admit it and correct it. That is admired by honest people. Never seen briefart and infowars ever admit it even when proven liars, they never do nor does trump ever do it. Why should not trump , briefart and infopwars and the like not be called out for their lies and the press does, but not trump and those fake news generators that trump admires so much! Fox news has an agenda that is not a secret and telling the truth about this is admirable just like telling the truth about trump, briefart and infowars is. They is the source of the real and worst fakes news is in today’s world!

    2. maxx says:

      When the press starts acting like true journalists and not communist propagandists and “fake news purveyors” maybe they will deserve another chance. Until that happens they got what they deserve.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        I guess you know little about propaganda or you would notice just who is leading the charge in the field. Trumps chief advisor is one of the kings of modern propaganda.

        1. chw2000 says:

          BSBob, why don’t you just come out and say you’re a simpleton anti trump a$$ hole? That’s all you do is side with the “resistance”. Trump IS the POTUS and he can make whatever rules he wants to make concerning the press access to the WH. Grow up BSBob, you’re a total a$$ hole.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            Trump is an employee of the people of the United States, not some tin pot dictator. I understand your limited intellect has problems dealing with the facts but the press isn’t the problem. When you drink the cool-aid of Brietbart and Info Wars or even that of the talk show hosts on Fox Entertainment you stop being able to live in the real world. You would think someone interested in the truth would want to see the tape of what was said not just relying on a reporters notes.

          2. Retired says:

            Maybe you should move to Syria or North Korea to find out what a dictator really is .You are still drinking Obozo juice and it shows .

You are a total a$$ hole and as long as you keep your head buried up your libturd, you will continue to believe all the BS the MSM spins at you. You really are a poster child for stupid!

          5. bobnstuff says:

            The press has been printing fake stories about the Clintons for thirty years and it’s just a problem now that is about Trump? Those unnamed sources are in fact real but they don’t publish them for a number of reasons. Professional journalists are taught that they must use provable facts and their editors will fire them if they don’t. Those basement web sights and talk shows don’t have to keep to those standards. Who’s going to fire a web blogger, his mother?

          6. chw2000 says:

          11. chw2000 says:

            Guess you’re a liberal a$$ hole too. The press has audio access to the WH briefings. Trump is not a dictator but you’re an a$$ hole.

          12. smilee says:

            Comprehension problems?? I never said he was a dictator I only said that was his dream. It is. You are a foul mouth alt right jerk who sees everything you cannot understand as being liberal which only proves you have been brainwashed by the alt right as that is their beliefs and it is all lies. Your such a sad case.

          13. chw2000 says:

            If you agree with BSBob, then you’re the “sad case”. You and BSBob buy into anything the liberal left has to say. You may not like Trump but he is doing a good job. And again, the poor “sad case” liberal media just can’t get used to the fact that they can’t have their TV cameras at a press conference. So sad! Maybe you and BSBob are deaf and need that video so you can read lips. You’re the jerk!

          14. smilee says:

            GOOD JOB??? You just showed us how really stupid you are. You clearly are so indoctrinated with alt right propaganda no truth with you has any chance. Trumps legacy will be rated no. 45 and go down with each new president as he is doing a terrible job. .

          15. chw2000 says:

            So sorry but you’re the “stupid” one! You can’t stand Trump, not because of his performance but his personality and his reluctance to accept the political “standard” that idiots like you prescribe. You just can’t accept anything or anyone that doesn’t fit your pre-determined “mold” of what an elected official should be. He’s the President Of The United States. Accept that libturd! He won the election fair and square. Your libturd candidate LOST and you libturds refuse to accept the results of the election. If you don’t like it, there’s another Presidential election in 2020. If you can’t wait ’till then, move!

          16. smilee says:

            He is a man without character, no moral compass, lies more than he tells the truth. Totally incompetent and cannot handle the job. . He is like a bull in a china shop and he will destroy much of the country and probably the world. You truly stupid ones cannot to see that truth about him. What is there to like about about him, answer nothig! Honest truthful intelligent peole get it but you have not a clue, Your rudeness clearly shows you have a lot of the same problems he has so I understand your stupid mistake supporting this despicable human ,being.

I’m not the one with problems, you are. You and Hillary call him “despicable” and you simple ignore all the crap she and Obama did. Just an offensive video. You’re the “despicable human being”, not PRESIDENT Trump. You are truly stupid. Just can’t accept that Hillary got beat can you. Try sitting in the corner and suck your thumb. Or perhaps you need mommy to change your diaper. Is that the problem you libturds have? Diaper rash?

            You want facts? How about the press remaining mute about Obama using drone strikes to execute people abroad , US citizens? Hillary’s campaign manager’s brother being paid $175,000 by Russia? Obama gave 47 of his fundraisers Administration jobs? Hillary’s net worth rose over $100 million while Secretary of State? Obama’s net worth rose over $10 million while President? Obama’s Justice Dept. wiretapped/surveilled reporters such as James Rosen and the AP? Obama restricted immigration 6 times with EO’s? Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch ont the tarmac during the Clinton INVESTIGATION? Hillary was given debate questions before the debate? Hillary and Obama lied about a video and Benghazi? Obama’s IRS abuse of taxpayers? How about Obama’s White House holding meeting with lobbyists in coffee shops to aavoid disclosure requirements? You meed more? These are FACTS! To ignore the abuse of the Obama administration makes you a total idiot or typical libturd!

          20. smilee says:

            Such a lie, he used them carefully in war so that is why the press did not tell us those lies, you do., If that is such concern to you why no mention of the over 100,000 Iraq people and are over 4000 of our own killed since Bush attacked and invaded that country based on a lie so you certainly are not credible. Just highly biased based on lies. I guess the only thing you ever read is that alt right propaganda as all you give us is their lies. No facts liar, So Pathetic.

        Just because trump and co tells you the free press is lying does not mean they are. Trumps words after all are coming form the biggest liar in the world today. There is no way of knowing that what the leakers are leaking is false either.

          We did not need Trump to tell us how bad the media is , most knew way back when . It is the Media that is making a circus out of politics .

            LOL Your such a delusional dreamer. A free press is necessary for a democracy to succeed and that is why the founders made sure it was a constitutional right that you and trump want to destroy and if you succeed you destroy the country. You have a lot of conspiracy theories but no factual support for any of them. it is just the narrative you you wish it was, We know trump tells nothing but lies as we hear them come form his own mouth and the next day the opposite comes from his mouth. . Only fools believe him. Have a good day fool!
