Donald Trump Just Schooled The Liberal Media

Every election cycle the liberal media plays the same game.

Members of the press pretend to be objective journalists while slanting their coverage to favor the Democrats.

But Donald Trump is refusing to play by their normal rules and is fighting back.

In response to the Orlando terror attacks, Trump questioned Barack Obama’s priorities and commitment to fighting radical Islamic terrorism.

In an interview with Fox and Friends, Trump attacked Obama for lacking focus with the War on Terror.

CNN reports:

“We’re led by a man who is very — look, we’re led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind. And the something else in mind, you know, people can’t believe it,” Trump said Monday morning on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”

“People cannot believe, they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and he can’t even mention the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable. There’s something going on.”

Asked earlier why he had tweeted that Obama should resign because he wouldn’t say the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism,” Trump said, “He doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other, and either one is unacceptable.”

The media pitched a fit and falsely accused Trump of claiming Obama was a secret Muslim or in league with the terrorists.

The Washington Post ran an article with the headline, ‘Donald Trump Seems to Connect President Obama to Orlando Shooting’.

The article cited a second interview Trump did with NBC’s Today Show.

The Post reports:

During an appearance on the “Today” show later Monday morning, Savannah Guthrie pushed Trump to explain what he meant in the earlier interview.

“Well there are a lot of people that think maybe he doesn’t want to get it,” Trump said. “A lot of people think maybe he doesn’t want to know about it. I happen to think that he just doesn’t know what he’s doing, but there are many people that think maybe he doesn’t want to get it. He doesn’t want to see what’s really happening. And that could be.”

Guthrie asked Trump why that would be, and the presumptive Republican presidential nominee responded: “Because Savannah, Savannah, why isn’t he addressing the issue? He’s not addressing the issue. He’s not calling it what it is. This is radical Islamic terrorism. This isn’t fighting Germany; this isn’t fighting Japan, where they wear uniforms.”

But Trump never claimed Obama sympathized with the terrorists’ cause.

His campaign released a statement to Bloomberg Politics clarifying that Trump only said Obama favors Muslims over Israel:

“I was referring to the fact that at times President Obama seems more in support of Muslims than Israel,” Donald Trump says in statement to Bloomberg Politics sent by spokeswoman Hope Hicks.

The Post, looking to damage Trump’s campaign, put words in his mouth.

Trump responded to the Post’s biased coverage by announcing on Facebook he was suspending the newspaper’s credentials to cover his campaign.

 

The Post was acting as a hostile outlet, interpreting Trump’s remarks in the most negative light possible, as opposed to reporting straight journalism.

Trump’s response proves he won’t behave like the typical Republican and play the media’s game.

    Good. If they deliberately twist what he says they should have their press credentials revoked. Freedom of the press is for unbiased reporting of the facts. If they slant the news to mislead the public they loose that abilty. I agree with Trump. I will vote Trump. The others running have lied to me and the public on national TV.

    Kinda how fox news treats the president . The difference is Obama does whine like bitch. Trump does.

    • Phileas Fogg

      What has Ocommie done that Fox lied about?, you got the Obama “does” whine like a bitch part right! Did you see his ridiculous whiny rant when the courts slapped down his illegal immigrant free pass rules?

      If Fox called Ocommie a sun backed turd… That would be pretty accurate.

      • Jake319

        Free pass rule ..lol. Where you hear that on hate radio. I know who you are fogg. Your the loser that accomplished nothing in life. Pissed because you think you diserved more. You don’t even know what the WaPO said about the lying trump…do u?
        If you support trump you support a creep that robbed middle class home owners and our retirement accounts . Look it up trump sold $1.3billion in junk bonds to wall street. Then walked away with other peoples money. You and I would be in jail. He split the money with his wall street scum buddies. Fox claimed President Obama was not an American citzen for 6 years.

          Not even close poor simpleton, your IQ must be pushing 80… Which is pretty smart for a George Soros affiliated Hitler Youthtard. I am actually pretty wealthy, own 2 businesses, and don’t give the two dog turds that rubbed together and made you… What some libtard paper thinks of the government created housing bubble.

          Why don’t you slither back the outhouse at the Lilith Fair where some random doper grease ball and your smelly hippie mom accidently created you.

          • Jake319

            I know who you are…..your a loser that try’s desperately to be clever.
            Just like the rest of your social awkward bloggers on this site. You call people names. Preach hate of everything that scares you. You are alone and will die alone.

          • Phileas Fogg

            I know who you are, closet homosexual, too lazy to hold a real job, lonely and desperate to fit in somewhere, you fall prey to ISIS and Fascist Socialist Dump-O-Crap propaganda. George Soros won’t let you hide under his desk anymore, where you can suckle him, and Grandma is demanding that you move out of her basement and get a life. Obviously foreign, most likely European, but one of the desperate 3rd world countries, not a successful one. Never had a real job, probably never lived without welfare.

            I only hate STUPID repugnant turds… so I HATE YOU!

  • Patrick Driscoll

    How does this impostor press describe the insane/irrational behavior of this devil worshiping muslim in the WH. has to be a root cause and not simply agenda talking points. Remember that we do no have a true objective press/media, as they are simply an extension of the DNC. They have been obuma’s bitches, as has LL.

    There is one reason why the biased news interviews anyone who is not politically correct and that is to try to convince the viewers that that person is either wrong, stupid, radical, out of touch—-.Next to government, the media is man’s worst enemy.
