Well, Donald Trump Jr put his finger on the media’s Brownshirt influence.
“The media has been her number one surrogate in this. Without the media, this wouldn’t even be a contest. But the media has built her up. They’ve let her slide on every indiscrepancy, on every lie, on every DNC game trying to get Bernie Sanders out of the thing,” Trump Jr. told Philadelphia-based conservative talk radio host Chris Stigall on Wednesday.
“I mean, if Republicans were doing that, they’d be warming up the gas chamber right now. It’s a very different system — there’s nothing fair about it,” Trump Jr. added.
Ouch. Media dogs of politics are not going to like that. Hillary has already labeled all the deplorables to target. They’d be all over the Right if media aligned itself like this. There is nothing fair about it, and it is warfare to the media. Free press is not.
I’ve never seen this extent before, though it just validates what Trump has said about the media lapdogs. The good part may be that they are pushing it so far, to such obvious extremes, that it could backfire and turn more people toward Trump. But they are too zealous for Hillary to see that.
