Donald Trump: Most of The Media Are ‘Absolute Scum’
At a campaign speech in Mt. Pleasant, S.C., Trump first went after the media, again.
“The mainstream media wants to surrender the constitution. These people back here,” said Trump motioning to the camera crews in the back of the room, “are the worst. They are so dishonest … 70 to 75 percent are absolutely dishonest. Absolute scum. Remember that. Scum. Scum. Totally dishonest people.”
Trump singled out NBC’s Katy Tur, referring to her as “little Katy” and calling her a “third-rate reporter” all because of how she reported on a recent Trump rally.
“What a lie it was. What a lie. What a lie it was from NBC to have written that … A third-rate reporter. Remember that. Third rate.”
Katy Tur responded gracefully on Twitter.
Awww. Women in the crowd are giving me sympathetic looks.
