Trump Says Calling Press Enemy Of The People Is Only Way Of Fighting Back

When 90% of the media votes Democrat, and have long abandoned any sort of journalistic integrity, what are you supposed to do?

(Mediaite) In a newly-released portion of Axios’ interview with Donald Trump, the president once again defended his anti-media rhetoric while brushing off the idea that someone will eventually get hurt because of it.

After asking Trump about his idea to roll back birthright citizenship, Jim VandeHei used multiple points of the interview to question Trump over the implications of calling the press the “enemy of the people.” VandeHei noted that Trump has a major platform between his rallies and his status as president, so he said “there’s got to be a part of you that’s like: ‘Dammit, I’m scared that someone is gonna take it too far.’”

“I think I’m doing a service [by attacking the press] when people write stories about me that are so wrong,” Trump responded. “I know what I do good and what I do bad. I really get it, OK? I really get it better than anybody in the whole world.”

Trump continues to bash the media and various critics who were targeted by the recent threats, and judging by his remarks to Axios, he feels no responsibility for how supporters of his may react to his riling them up against the press.

“It’s my only form of fighting back,” Trump said. “I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t do that.”

What about the responsibility for the Credentialed Media riling up Democratic Party voters with their anti-Trump and anti-Republican language? For nasty language towards white people (imagine had a white person said this about blacks), especially white men. Nasty towards those who work for Trump, and elected Republicans. And the language from elected Democrats and those who want to be elected, along with all their pundits.

It might be a bit strong to say that the press is our enemy, but, are they not? They are against everything we’re against, and they aren’t shy in saying it. Pieces in the straight news section are horribly biased, and often become opinion pieces. And this has been going on for awhile, but is even worse now than say during the Bush 43 years. They make no attempt to hide it.

If the press doesn’t like it, well, then perhaps they should do some introspection and understand that they are simply all bloggers, activists and drama queens (Jim Acosta, April Ryan) masquerading as professional reporters. At least those at the UK Guardian are honest about their extreme bias. Outlets like CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, NBC, CBS, etc pretend, and get all sorts of butthurt when you say they’re biased and unprofessional.

And, as for the #NeverTrumpers, like unhinged Max Boot, they’ve abandoned every semblance of Conservatism/Libertarianism/Basic Republicanism due to their Trump Derangement Syndrome. Trump is doing what we begged Republicans to do: fight back. Defend yourself. Defend your policies. Do it in a sustained manner. Attack those who are attacking you. Hit them back twice as hard. I tell you, it got to a point where I was tired of defending the Bush 43 admin when they wouldn’t defend themselves. If you don’t defend yourself and your policies, why should anyone believe in you?

Politics is a dirty, nasty business covered with a veneer of civility. Trump gets that. Democrats get that. Republicans are finally starting to get it.

    Why does tRump beat the press? Because they just won’t listen. It’s what abusers do.

    The Cons have been whining and “working the refs” for decades, and now tRump calls them the “Enemy of the People”.

    tRump’s significant problems are not caused by our free press but by his actions. tRump groveled to Putin. tRump didn’t condemn white nationalist/KKK/neoNazis. tRump supported tax cuts for the wealthy. tRump lost the popular vote. tRump lies repeatedly about issues large and small – hundreds of lies.

    tRump focuses on specific enemies – “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” – the free press, Dems, immigrants, Muslims, Blacks. And he’s good at it. It’s his primary talent.

    Eventually a tRump supporter will assassinate a journalist.

      Well, the little black fella from st. louis would certainly know what abusers do…

      You mean like Demos supporters murdering R Congressmen?

      Trump goes after the media because they’ve been lying for 50 years. People are behind him on it. That’s why the media’s approval is 20%.

      tRump focuses on specific enemies – “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it”.

      They’re your rules, sweetie. It must kill you that you’re being beaten by them.

    “Eventually a Trump supporter will assassinate a journalist.” As opposed to a Trump hater that attempted and came very close to assassinating a Republican House member? How can one be more tone-deaf than J?

    That’s what Stalin said, too.

    The US President, even one as vile as DJT, has many options short attacking Americans. He could, for example, tell the truth occasionally. He could STOP denigrating Muslims, Blacks, gays, immigrants etc. The press telling the tRuth about tRump and his actions is not an attack on him.

    We get that the far-right likes him because he abuses those he views as enemies.

    • liljeffyatemypuppy says:

      “Republicans want to put y’all back in chains!”

      “GOP wants to take your Social Security.”

      “GOP wants to kill seniors by ending Medicare.”

      “GOP wants poor people to die.”
      Yep, let’s worry about the truth, shall we.
      Blow it out your ass, little fella.

    • formwiz says:

      Stalin said that?

      When? And where? And what were his exact words?

      Because Uncle Joe had the press under his thumb.

      PS Seem Jeffery is describing Zippy and his constant denigration of anyone he didn’t like. Trump likes blacks (40% approval as of today) and homosexuals, as well as legal immigrants.

    So J, help us out here-please show evidence of “Trump denigrating Muslims, blacks, gays, immigrants, ect.”. Good luck
