President Trump said one day after explosive devices were sent to prominent Democrats and CNN that "a big part" of the anger in society today is caused by "purposely false and inaccurate reporting" from mainstream media.
He said in an early morning tweet on Thursday that "fake news" has gotten "so bad and hateful that it is beyond description."
"Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!" he wrote.
Trump's also said at a campaign rally late Wednesday that the news media should set a "civil" tone.
CNN anchor John Berman responded to Trump after reading his tweet on "New Day."
"Let me tell you what the mainstream media has been doing this morning: We've been reporting on a bomb ... sent to either kill, threaten, or scare," he said.
The network, a frequent target of Trump's rhetoric, reported early Thursday that another device was sent to the office of Robert De Niro, a frequent Trump critic, in New York.
The package sent to CNN on Wednesday included the name of CIA Director John Brennan, who is an MSNBC contributor.
Packages were intercepted before reaching the residences of former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and former Attorney General Eric Holder were also targeted, although Holder's was sent back to the listed return address, the office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.).
During an event to sign an anti-opioid bill into law on Wednesday, Trump condemned "political violence" and urged unity.
But Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) called out Trump in a statement later Wednesday.
"Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions," the wrote.
"President Trump's words ring hollow until he reverses his statements that condone acts of violence."
Hopefully, before his second term is up (SOONER would be alright with ME), President Trump will address public schools and the government indoctrination of young minds that belong to lazy or too busy, parents.
I found it interesting that our local ABC channel either did not mention the “bombs” on the 6 p.m. news last night, or their coverage was so brief, that I completely missed it.
I think they are trying to turn away from the MSM complicity on fake news and hysterical reactions taking up all the time for news coverage.
I hope that is the case.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and former Attorney General Eric Holder were also targeted,
No, they also participated.
Can’t imagine these people holding the Houase. They must be defeated
Thats funny coming from Democrats who have openly told their supporters to harass Republicans in their private lives, who had a deranged Sanders supporter open fire on the Republican charity baseball practice seriously wounding one congressman, and of course there is the matter of several Republican campaign offices having been vandalized or burned down this election cycle and let us not forget the white powder that was mailed to President Trump and his family members last month.
Strangely the Democrats and their propaganda arm the MSM havent wanted to talk about that. Guess all of those are on the Democrat leadership and the MSM - right?
We’ve been reporting on a bomb, meant to either kill, threaten, scare, or interfere with the election.
(Added the last option.)
Trump says: They lie a lot
They respond: With "outrage" ... and more lies.
As usual, The President is SPOT ON
The media has promoted the division and hatred, with its incredibly biased, politicized “reporting” and its absolute pandering of the PC losers.
Not once do you ever see the media criticize blacks, homosexuals, et al nor report white rights, like opposition to quotas, religious freedoms, free speech, etc.
And then it claims innocence when the incivility crops up?
I’m noticing the change, too. Our three local channels used to yell long and loud about whatever ‘perceived’ slight PDJT caused on any given day...pretty much to the exclusion of anything else that happened locally that day.
Now? They’re sticking with local coverage and no longer bashing him for 30 minutes each, each evening.
President Trump is right. And unless the leftists stop, cease and desist their fake news and violence; things will not get better.
I wrote shortly after the incident that the President will turn this back around on them. There is limitless material pertaining our side being attacked. In typical Trumpian fashion he will then do a tongue and cheek cant we all get along....which will drive them absolutely nuts. Never play their game. Amazing,
“”Time and time again, the President has condoned physical violence and divided Americans with his words and his actions,” the wrote.”
Behold:Shupelosi - the lying wonder of the world! Get your tickets!
Maybe the Kavanaugh stuff helped them to turn the corner and realize how they (MSM locals) were contributing to the problems.
We can only hope!
Fake news media pretends to be the victim.
Yet if the tables were turned and conservative politicians and media had been the targets, CNN would be celebrating it.
What a bunch of whoremonger, attention-seeking hypocrites. Its all about them.
Im sick and tired of their constant faux outrage. Its gotten old.
It’s good to hope; however, local news services operate as conduits to convey the MSM propaganda to the great unwashed masses. It’s a system of delivery that is not likely to change.
God help us if they do (or when they do, because eventually the pendulum swings back)!
