The Times leads with a blatantly false assertion that Trump defended white supremacists
People have been reacting to the false narrative pushed by the NY Times and Washington Post that Trump was defending the very people he called bad. This is a grossly misleading characterization of what he said and they should retract it. This distortion is the reason for all the criticism. The media needs to look at its on visceral hatred that is demonstrated in stories like this.
- In the wake of his defense of white supremacists, President Trump was abandoned by executives, contradicted by military leaders and shunned by Republicans.
- According to close aides, the president said he felt liberated by his news conference and viewed it as his latest retort to a political establishment trying to tame his impulses.
