Lefty Perspective: Donald Trump Attacks ‘Disgusting’ Media In Pennsylvania As Crowd Chants ‘CNN Sucks’

By Doha Madani

President Donald Trump attacked the news media in another bizarre rant while a crowd cheered and chanted along in Pennsylvania on Thursday night.

Trump’s diatribe against the “fake disgusting news” took place during a Wilkes-Barre Township rally to endorse Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Pa.) in the state’s upcoming U.S. Senate race. The Pennsylvania crowd cheered Trump on, screaming “CNN Sucks!” only minutes into the rally.

Trump took particular interest in the coverage of his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He insisted that Russia was “very unhappy” about his win and that it was a “good thing” he had gotten along with Putin.

“[The press] wanted me to walk up and have a boxing match,” Trump told the crowd. “What ever happened to diplomacy? Let me tell you, if I did go up and start screaming ― they would have said, ‘He was terrible. He was so rude. His performance was horrible.’”
