The staff of the Capital Gazette took a jab at President Trump, days after a gunman opened fired in their newsroom and killed five people.
The staff of the Annapolis, Md., newspaper released a letter on Sunday to thank those who have offered support in the aftermath of the shooting.
We wont forget being called an enemy of the people, the staff wrote. No, we wont forget that. Because exposing evil, shining light on wrongs and fighting injustice is what we do.
Their comment appears to be a thinly-veiled hit at Trumps use of the phrase to attack members of the media.
Trump has used the term consistently throughout his contentious relationship with the press.
Most recently, Trump rallied against NBC and CNN last month for its coverage of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Our Countrys biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools! Trump tweeted in June.
The president backed off his criticism of the media one day after the shooting and offered rare praise for reporters.
Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job, Trump said Friday at an event to celebrate six months of the GOP tax bill.
CNNs Jim Acosta shouted at Trump from the back of the room during the event.
Mr. President, will you stop calling the press the enemy of the people? Acosta yelled.
CNN later aired a montage on Friday of Trump talking down about the media.

Oh no , the hill of crap again
Bitter Libs ... aweful people ...
I call that "winning!".
A jumped-up nickel paper is not exactly journalism.
Shame. I hate a job left unfinished.
The lying communist media is the enemy of the people.
The mainstream media speak power to truth.
Cool, don’t forget it then.
And also know that you are the Enemies of Freedom.
“appears to be a thinly-veiled hit at Trumps use of the phrase to attack members of the media.”
Thinly veiled? Where is the veil?!
The MSM won’t put up with free speech and honest opinion about its dastardly doings? What are they going to do to Trump in retaliation? Lie about him? Try to get him impeached? Blame him for Obama’s crimes? That ship has sailed. Horse has left barn. Ice cream on pavement. It’s done. Stick a fork in it. The Media has done everything to remove a sitting president, prevent him from ever being elected, and whip up discontent (e.g., and they wouldn’t mind ahem*cough* riots* cough*)
what are you going to do? give him negative press?
At least there’s five less of them to spew hate at President Trump...
Oh so they are part of the Fake News Democrat media that has declared war on the President? We thought they were a little mom & pop local paper that advertised garage sales. Didn’t know they aspired to be part of the whining Big Boys, who can dish it out but they can’t take it.
>>No, we wont forget that. Because exposing evil, shining light on wrongs and fighting injustice is what we do.<<
No, it isn’t what you do.
What you do is make stories up that advance your leftist narrative. If there are grains of truth in your reports you spin them until they are unrecognizable.
You and yours have turned “journalists” into the most despised group alongside “politicians” and “used car salesmen.”
Sew the wind...
I’m done with thehill.com. Not going to give those subversive leftist F&%$s the traffic.
I would tell the staff at the Capital Gazette, right back at you. We won’t forget that you are indeed the enemy of the people.
Thanks for confirming it.
The fakestream media cheered and championed an America-hating enemy combatant named Barack Hussein Osama for President of the United States.
They are the enemy of the American people and need to be brought to justice.
In fact, I'd be surprised if Trump has even heard of the rag.
The first time that I'd ever heard of this paper was the "BREAKING" news story the other day.
