Now he’s done it.
Donald “Smart Person” Trump has suggested that the media are covering up terrorist attacks that have occurred against innocent victims. The president went to Central Command headquarters today ostensibly to express his support for our fighting men and women.
So … what does this guy do? He tosses yet another lie onto the firestorm he is trying to stoke.
What’s more, he has actually impugned the patriotism and loyalty of the people who report the news to the public.
Trump — as is his modus operandi — cited not a shred of evidence to back up his allegation. He just said it. Boom! That’s it.
According to CBS News: “The president began talking about how ‘radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland’ as they did on 9/11, in the Boston bombings and in San Bernardino. He said it’s also happening ‘all over Europe’ like in Paris and Nice.
“’It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. In many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand that,’ Mr. Trump said.”
It’s not even being reported?
Their reasons? I’m all ears, Mr. President. I am waiting with bated breath to know what those reasons might be.
Is it because the media are actually terrorist sympathizers? Do they want the bad guys to succeed? Do they actually favor the death and misery being inflicted on innocent victims?
What in the name of all that is holy is this clown suggesting?
