President Donald Trump has been extremely critical of the media off late, and has not shied away from blaming them for instigating violence and for hosting double standards. The beloved President of the United States stood in front of a rally some days ago and mentioned that the media played an imperative role in playing the politics of personal destruction, and ruining the careers of thousands of politicians, through their irrational reporting.
Since then, he has come out all guns blazing, and has mentioned that the media has been showing abhorrent double standards in their reporting of political events.
Trump recently spoke about the matter with Fox News reporter Laura Ingraham and mentioned a few words about the arrest of Cesar Sayoc, who is a Trump supporter and sent mailings of pipe bombs to numerous media hosts that criticized Trump.
“I was in the headline of the Washington Post, my name associated with this crazy bomber, I was in the headline when they got him, they didn’t say ‘bomber found,’ they talked about Trump in the headline,” he mentioned.
Trump then started talking about Republican Congressman Steve Scalise, who was shot by James Hodgkinson, a left-wing activist who was an ardent supporter of Democrat Bernie Sanders. Talking about double standards shown by the media in covering both these events, Trump mentioned, “They didn’t do that with Bernie Sanders, they didn’t do that with Democrats when other people came out, they didn’t do that with President Obama with the church, the horrible situation with the church, they didn’t do that, they put my name in the headlines.”
Trump did mention a couple of people from Washington Post, and revealed how they were running flawed campaigns to make his venues seem empty, when in reality they are packed to the core.
