“The fact is, the press has destroyed themselves because they went too far”
President Trump absolutely UNLOADED on the liberal media last night during a Veterans rally…and the crowd absolutely loved it!
According to a New York Daily News report:
“President Trump fired up his vendetta against the news media Saturday night during a speech intended to honor veterans ahead of his first Independence Day in office.
Trump jetted back to Washington during a brief break from his rainy New Jersey golf trip and wedged his journalism beef between prepared tributes to members of the armed services and Christians.
“I’m President and they’re not,” the 45th President boasted, attacking the press during a packed “Celebrate Freedom Rally” at the Kennedy Center.
“We won and they lost. The fact is, the press has destroyed themselves because they went too far, instead of being subtle and smart,” Trump said, just one day after publically bashing “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
“They used a hatchet and the people saw it right from the beginning,” he added.
Trump spent much of his weekend thumbing rage-filled tweets against the “FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA” and the MSNBC co-hosts, blasting the broadcast duo as “crazy” and “dumb as a rock.”
Trump first mocked Brzezinski’s appearance and intellect Friday, prompting a whirlwind of bipartisan criticism.
During the half hour speech, Trump spoke of veterans and said, “There is no place I would rather be than with you.”
The White House is expected to host a picnic Tuesday for service members and their families on the South Lawn.
Trump touted a new bill signed into law last week, the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, which is designed to make it easier for the federal agency to discipline or fire employees for misconduct.
The President devoted a majority of his speech to faith leaders and religious liberties. He was introduced by the Rev. Robert Jeffress, Dallas’ First Baptist Church, and a choir that debuted a new choral piece named for Trump’s campaign motto, “Make America Great Again.”
“We don’t want to see God forced out of the public square, driven out of our schools or pushed out of our civic life,” Trump said. “We want to see prayers before our football games, if they want to give prayers.”
Trump ended his remarks with his signature call to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.”
