Thundering that the media is the fake, fake disgusting news, President Donald Trump unleashed a torrent of grievances Thursday at a Pennsylvania campaign rally in which he cast journalists as his true political opponent.
Trump barnstormed in a state that he swiped from the Democrats in 2016 and that is home to a Senate seat he is trying to place in the Republicans column this fall. But the race between GOP U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta and two-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Bob Casey took a back seat to Trumps invectives against the media, which came amid a backdrop of antagonism to journalists from the White House and hostility from the thousands packed into a loud, overheated Wilkes-Barre arena.
Whatever happened to the free press? Whatever happened to honest reporting? Trump asked, pointing to the media in the back of the hall. They dont report it. They only make up stories. [ ]
As far as I know, Im the first press secretary in the history of the United States thats required Secret Service protection, she [Sarah Huckabee Sanders] said, accusing the media of continuing to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration.

Jim Acosta is outraged!
AmericanPravda trashes US President Trump as disgusting at every turn.
Notice how this fake news describes Pennsylvania. The state BELONGED to the Demon Rats, but eeeeevil Trump STOLE it from them.
And they wonder why they are considered FAKE.
Both Reuters and AP, running with the fake news agenda 100% of the time.
Owning Jim Acosta.
Can you imagine Trump’s poll numbers if the media were not promoting a Socialist agenda?
Damn near everything Time-Warner owns is either breaking even or losing money and it would take less time and money to shakeup CNN and see a positive response than it would any of their other properties.
They are NOT the news media, they are the COMMUNIST PARTY..they get their talking points every single day from Media Matters and the Democrat Party
I can’t remember a time in my history where the media swooned over a Republican President
Truth to power by power.
50+ responses and NO ONE goes and posts a link to the vid portion in question.
I assume you're an able-bodied individual who understands search engines. Why the whiny nagging tone? Do it yourself, hoss.
Everyone knows it's true.
I can’t remember when the media was this full of hate.
It seems they want to keep up the negative drum beat against Trump and Republicans to keep the Democrats watching their Democratic Party Show each day. Some people must like fake news. Kind of like the National Enquier.
Print media, television news — overwhelmingly leftist ideologues; and their reporting reflects that. It can’t help but reflect that.
They could handle the squishy establishment Repub politicians; but their world will end every day this President is in office. The CAN’T roll him. They are sure it’s for all the marbles (which is why they’re losing theirs, for fear he will keep on winning).
And here’s the easy clincher: the media are almost universally enemies of Trump; the people are enthusiastic allies of Trump; that makes the media overwhelmingly enemies of the people. QED
They always have been, they've just stopped hiding it.
I do that constantly here and I’m sick of it.
The press hates anyone who voted Republican. They are in the way of progress for the country. The press wants Socialism.
