How do you fight a media that won’t tell the truth?
President Trump has a few methods up his sleeve.
Last night in Erie, Pennsylvania, the Trump campaign set up a giant video screen. OANN’s Jack Posobiec tweeted, “Trump has a giant video screen set up at his PA rally and is playing Biden and Kamala’s comments about banning fracking to the audience Now he’s talking about ‘the laptop from hell’.”
How better to convey to fracking jobs dependent Pennsylvanians than to show them the truth about what Biden and Harris have stated – but deny when in Pennsylvania – in the past.
What if he starts using that jumbotron to play the video of Biden admitting he got the Ukranian prosecutor fired after threatening them with withholding American money? This screen has many possibilities!
Taking it directly to the voters is his best tactic. Look for more of this in the coming rallies.
Trump has a plan to undermine the liberal TV people, too. Having taped an interview with Lesley Stahl for 60 Minutes, Trump revealed to the audience that he expects editing to twist his words. It’s surprising he would even do an interview with that atrocious CBS propaganda outlet. Perhaps it falls in the category of all publicity is good.
Anyway, Trump is wise to their ways. He repeated an earlier tweet: “I am pleased to inform you that, for the sake of accuracy in reporting, I am considering posting my interview with Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes, PRIOR TO AIRTIME! This will be done so that everybody can get a glimpse of what a FAKE and BIASED interview is all about..”
It has been reported that Trump walked out of the interview. He tweeted a video of Stahl not wearing a mask after the interview, saying, “Much more to come.”
The New York Times clutched its pearls: “The spectacle of a president, two weeks out from Election Day, picking a fight with the nation’s most popular television news program began on Tuesday after Mr. Trump grew irritated with Ms. Stahl’s questions, according to two people familiar with the circumstances of the taping.
“One person briefed on what took place said that Mr. Trump had spent more than 45 minutes filming with Ms. Stahl and her CBS News crew, and that the taping had not wrapped up when the president’s aides had expected it to.
“So Mr. Trump cut the interview short, and then declined to participate in a ‘walk and talk’ segment with Ms. Stahl and Vice President Mike Pence, the people said.
“It appeared that Ms. Stahl’s approach did not sit well with the president.”
In Erie, Trump added, “You have to watch what we do to ’60 Minutes.’ You’ll get such a kick out of it. You’re going to get a kick out of it. Leslie Stahl’s not going to be happy.”
But we will. Everyone knows the media is corrupt and no one likes them. Taking it to the people is the right thing to do. We can make up our own minds.
Trump set a trap and it appears they walked right into it.
