Trump lackeys are not having a great time on television these days. With tolerance for blatant bullshit at an all time low, those still willing to go on legitimate media outlets to defend the president are being pounded into mincemeat by reporters and pundits who simply will not put up with the incessant lying and spreading of blatantly false information.
Today, the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin slaughtered top Trump donor Ken Abramowitz on MSNBC for his pathetic defense of Trump’s response to white supremacists marching in Charlottesville VA and attacks on the media for misinterpreting what he said.
“Mr. Abramowitz, what you just said is a shande, a shame, a disgrace,” Rubin told Abramowitz, using a yiddish term to emphasize her point.
“Mr. Trump is not being misinterpreted by the media. The reaction was from his own lips from his own words this week. Frankly, you’re the one who needs a brush up on the Constitution. Our Constitution does not deny the right to protest and the right to assemble to people who don’t like other people’s rights. They have the right to speak too. What the problem is is that they were number 1, violent, number 2, killed a person, number 3, they were shouting racial epithets. You cannot absolutely believe all those CEOs, all those people on the arts, members of congress, the senate are simply mesmerized by the media, that they don’t know the real Donald Trump? Come on.”
