For weeks, the Fake News Media has been going all-out to smear President Trump.
With the election just weeks away, their smears are only going to get worse.
And Trump just dropped a bomb on the Fake News Media following their latest smear.
No President in modern history has faced as much hate from the press as President Trump has.
While trying to do his job, he has been forced to deal with constant contrived scandals, including the fake Russia hoax, impeachment, and now lies about his response to coronavirus.
Those are far from the only attacks he has faced, but each of those assaults on his presidency alone have been more damaging than perhaps any attack on a President in modern history.
They really throw out the kid gloves to deal with anybody who puts America first.
Trump’s latest attack has come from Bob Woodward, the journalist most known for his reporting on the Watergate scandal.
He is releasing a new book, titled Rage, about the Trump presidency.
Though it has not yet been released, the Fake News Media has selectively revealed some of the Trump attacks he includes in the pages.
The most talked about part relates to what Trump told Woodward about coronavirus.
In the early days of the pandemic, Trump spoke candidly to Woodward, stating that he needed to “play it down” a bit in order to avoid widespread panic.
“I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic,” Trump said.
It is clear that Trump was simply being open about his intentions, instead of talking like a politician.
Any President in his position would certainly do the same, as a mass panic would be the worst thing that could come at the time.
Trump explained this in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“I’m the leader of the country, I can’t be jumping up and down and scaring people,” Trump explained. “I don’t want to scare people. I want people not to panic, and that’s exactly what I did.”
The President also went directly after Woodward, blasting him for writing “hit jobs.”
“He does hit jobs with everybody, he even did it on Obama . . . constant hit jobs. On [George W.] Bush, I guess, they did three books, they were all terrible,” Trump said. “So I figured, you know, ‘Let’s give it a little shot, I’ll speak to him.’ It wasn’t a big deal, I speak to him and let’s see. I don’t know if the book is good or bad, I have no idea. I probably, almost definitely won’t read it because I don’t have time to read it. But I gave it a little bit of a shot, sounds like it’s not going to be good.”
The reality of course was that the press was always going to frame whatever Woodward wrote about Trump in a negative light.
But the extent of the outright distortion and lies surpasses even what the most cynical political observers have come to expect.
