    And here is the expected bad faith argument from the loonies on the right claiming it was a set up / false flag.

    Trump's portrayal of the media as some evil person is probably the worst thing to come from the presidency. Our country is built on the freedom of the press and he hasn't stopped barraging them...

    Trump's portrayal of the media as some evil person is probably the worst thing to come from the presidency. Our country is built on the freedom of the press and he hasn't stopped barraging them since taking office. Personally I can't stand it, and journalists are already losing their lives over this rhetoric we need less, not more.

      If you were a rabid Trump supporter, I believe it would make sense given his constant claim that the media are the "Enemy of the People", as well as support for acts of violence against protestors and the press, including previously saying he would pay for legal expenses for anyone that attacked a protestor.

      Trump is absolutely the reason that we have had numerous threats, attacks, bomb threats, and shootings of the press over the last couple years
