Poll Context: Following unrest at Trump’s rallies in St. Louis and Chicago, the media played the ‘sucker punch’ video over and over while repeating time and time again Trump’s comments to ‘get them out’, ‘punch them in the face’ etc. Trump said of the media:
“And these people in the media, the most dishonest human beings on Earth. They are the worst. They are the worst. So what they’ll do is they’ll take 10 minutes worth of clips of that and if one policeman accidentally moves a finger and touches this wiseguy, it’s like, ‘Oh, it’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen.’ And yet the police are being abused for 10 minutes, OK? ” he said. “Give me a break. Give me a break. We better toughen up, we better smarten up, and we better stop with this political correctness because it’s driving us down the tubes.”
Trump said of his supporters hitting back at aggressive protesters, that’s “what we need a little bit more of.”
So does Trump get a raw deal from the press? Do they do it to try and put blame on him personally?
