President Trump delivered a crushing rebuke to the leftist media for their one-sided coverage of the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend.
For both failing to report the violence of leftist terrorists like Antifa, and for criticizing President Trump’s measured statement, the President absolutely laid the smackdown on the media.
“There was no way of making a correct statement that early,” President Trump said, regarding his broad initial statement on Charlottesville condemning all forms of hated and bigotry. “Unlike you and unlike the media, before I make a statement, I like to know the facts.”
After repeating his earlier condemnation of the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white nationalists, the President questioned why the media didn’t report the violence of what he called the “alt-left.” (Related: BuzzFeed Wants To Blame Trump On Charlottesville. So They Bring Out Race-Baiter AL SHARPTON?)
“Do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem?” he asked. “I think they do.”
For these common sense remarks, the mainstream media FREAKED OUT.
Even Fox News joined in the with the crying leftist media.
The Trump supporters on Twitter were jubilantly celebrating the President’s epic clap back on the media.
