Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been criticized in the past for his ties to the Russian government, and in particular for his friendship with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Trump denies even knowing Putin, which is bizarre considering Trump’s daughter Ivanka and Putin’s girlfriend were spotted vacationing together in Croatia less than a month ago. Therefore, Trump did himself no favors with the American electorate by appearing on the Russian state-owned TV network “RT” to attack the American press.
During Trump’s appearance on RT he was asked what was the biggest surprise of his campaign. Trump unleashed a fury against the mainstream media:
I think the dishonesty of the media. The media has been unbelievably dishonest. I mean they’ll take a statement that you make which is perfect and they’ll cut it up and chop it up and shorten it or lengthen it or do something with it. And all of a sudden it doesn’t look as good as it did when you actually said it.
Oh poor Donald Trump. He lives in a fantasy world where the media attacks him with falsities, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Did the media concoct Trump attacking the family of a dead U.S. soldier who happened to be Muslim? Was it the media who had a crying baby thrown out of a rally, or was it Trump? Has it been the media who has spent years deriding women, making comments about their appearances as if they were mere objects, or was it Trump himself?
The crying by Trump highlights his inability to take responsibility for his own actions, which is not the behavior befitting an individual running for the highest office in the world.
