It’s going to be a war now between the mainstream media and Donald Trump. After his shenanigans he just pulled on the media, they are going to come after him full force.
The Republican presidential candidate gathered the press together at the new Trump International Hotel on Friday to hear him address the issue of whether he believes President Obama was born in the U.S. or not.
What they got instead was an hour of Trump endorsements from retired military brass, including generals and admirals and a gold star wife. The cable news channels covered it from start to finish.
Immediately after the event, the anchors at CNN were seething and yelled over each other to deride Trump for tricking them, even though Trump did admit he believes the president was born in America.
CNN’s Jake Tapper called it “a political rick-roll.”
John King lamented “we (the media) got played by the Trump campaign.”
I don’t support Donald Trump, but damn if this was entertaining to watch! The media got used because they were chasing the dollar instead of a real story. They deserve all the hate in the world for they way they have covered this election cycle.
