Trump Launches An Unhinged Monday Morning Meltdown Against The Media, Deflects Blame Again

Donald Trump attacked the media last night, then woke up this morning and continued his assault on the free press. The president is not leading by example and is instead, blaming the media even after CNN received a bomb this past week from a Trump supporter who terrorized this country. Top Democrats were the recipients of bombs which plagued the news as the country was gripped with fear, but Trump is not holding himself accountable for the violent rhetoric which he has repeatedly displayed.

“There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news,” Trump tweeted during his morning meltdown. “The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People, must stop the open & obvious hostility & report the news accurately & fairly. That will do much to put out the flame of Anger and Outrage and we will then be able to bring all sides together in Peace and Harmony. Fake News Must End!”

This, of course, upset Americans who are tired of the division he creates every single day.

Following the slaughter of Jewish people in a Pittsburgh synagogue,  a group of progressive Jewish leaders told Trump that he is no longer welcome in that city until he denounces white nationalism. Trump recently declared that he is a ‘nationalist’ so that might be hard for him to do.

CNN received two bombs, and Trump is attacking his supporter’s victims. News just broke that CNN has received another ‘suspicious package’ which was intercepted and it is similar to the previous ones.

Trump’s attacks are unprecedented. Even Richard Nixon didn’t go this far.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
