    Wait, are you trying to argue that Donald Trump is a victim of media bias?

    The media reports exactly what he says and analyzes it! If people are disturbed by hearing it, it is not the media’s fault, it is Donald’s!

    Further, Trump from the very beginning was nasty and antagonistic to the media. He was disrespectful to reporters (mocking a disabled journalist on live TV), telling them to shut up, putting them in pens and telling his supporters to boo them. This was before he even won the Republican nomination. His own campaign manager was accused of assaulting a female journalist because she dared to ask Donald a question.

    Donald and his remaining supporters are just salty because they are having to deal with the consequences of their candidates actions. Trump is a narcissist and he thought he could use the media for free publicity and it worked until the Republican convention because the GOP nomination process is a sh*tshow. How can you have 12 candidates on a debate stage. But then when Trump won the nomination and the media began to vet and analyze his policies and statement ts like they do for ALL candidates he started whining like a little boy bully whose victim has been taken away. Just this past week it was revealed that Melania Trump worked illegally in the US. An illegal immigrant, just like the Mexicans he wants to deport. The media’s role is not one of amplifier – just repeating whatever comments a candidate says. It is to vet, analyze, investigate and reveal. Well, Trump has been vetted and found WANTING. That is his fault, not the media’s.
