A lot of Donald Trump‘s big Connecticut rally last night was just media-bashing, especially where The New York Times was concerned.
Trump has been blowing a gasket all weekend over a Times report that there’s basically a meltdown in the Trump campaign over his lack of discipline and refusal to say on message.
Last night, Trump declared, “I’m not running against Crooked Hillary Clinton. I’m running against the crooked media!… These are the most dishonest people!”
Did anybody else notice that the camera which recorded Donald Trump saying that CNN had turned off their camera in response to his criticism of them was in fact a CNN camera?
Step one in setting the stage for a civil war:
Claim the election is rigged.
Strep two: Claim the media is against you.
Step three: Stay tuned.
Update: Holy crap, it looks like Trump is completely off his meds.
If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn't put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2016
Crooked Hillary Clinton is being protected by the media. She is not a talented person or politician. The dishonest media refuses to expose!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2016
