Media to Trump Supporters: Stop Hurting Our Feelings!

The Mainstream Media is crying foul!  Donald Trump and his supporters are mean, and they are hurting our feelings according to reports.  Aaawwww! Poor babies.

CNN (Clinton News Network) lead political anchor Wolf Blitzer popped a cork recently unloading on Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway demanding that Trump supporters “stop heckling journalists.” – ToddStarnes.com 

“He shouldn’t be doing that,” Blitzer said on CNN. “I mean, can you talk to him? And say to him, ‘Mr. Trump, we only have a few days left, and these are hardworking young journalists, they deserve to have some security,’ if you will, because of some of those Trump supporters out there, they get pretty nasty with what they’re screaming at these young people.” – ibid.

Blitzer went so far as to say some reporters are scared of Trump supporters fearing physical harm.

Starnes writes, “I’ll be sure to muster a bit of sympathy for the terrified and tearful reporters, quivering in their safe spaces in some darkened corner of a Trump venue.” — ibid.

Now I ask you, have you ever heard such cowardly talk?  What happened to the good ole’ days of the hard nose reporter who would pursue a story at all cost even to their own peril?

I wish, during the interview, Ms. Conway would have asked Wolf Blitzer for the names of the journalist who have been attacked and beaten up at Trump rallies by his supporters.

Would you like to know how many there have been?  None.  Nada. Ziltch!

Todd Starnes makes a valid point when he comments that Mr. Trump’s supporters are not heckling journalist, on the contrary, they are heckling the Clinton Media like the aforementioned Clinton News Network.

These are the same people who are in the tank for Hillary.  These are the same people who have donated their time and money to slander Mr. Trump and his supporters calling them violent when it is now known that Clinton operatives sent rabble rousers into peaceful venues to cause trouble.

And it is these same so-called media outlets who, once the truth came out, made excuses for Hillary Clinton and her campaign and then barely gave the news of this outing by WikiLeaks coverage opting instead to highlight Vladimir Putin as the whistleblower.

The Lamestream Media is simply getting a taste of their own medicine.

Until the major news outlets return to the days of reporting the news instead of making the news, I say, keep the pressure up!
