Trump Slams Hillary and “Fake News” Over Double Standard Treatment of Donald Jr.

Trump Slams Hillary and “Fake News” Over Double Standard Treatment of Donald Jr.

I think President Trump has had more than enough of the slanted news coverage of Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney. The meeting was ostensibly to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. That is not a crime and just about any politician I know would have done the same thing. However, I think it was ill-advised as Russia is a hostile country and not an ally of ours. Having said that, as far as I can tell, Trump Jr. did not receive any info. The attorney tried to give him a folder with info in it, but Trump Jr. found out it was not sourced and did not take it.

I am more concerned that this attorney was connected to Putin and to the Democrats. She was in close with Senator Dellums, who in my book is a communist. She also got a visa exception from Loretta Lynch and had overstayed her visa by six months. Yep, I know there were eight people in the meeting, but none of them are major players. And Russians don’t do their meddling this way. They are far more covert about it.

President Trump on Sunday defended his son and attacked fake news media on Twitter, claiming their reports are “distorting democracy” in the nation.

“Hillary Clinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?” Trump tweeted at 6:35 a.m.

“With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!” he later tweeted.

Donald Trump Jr. was criticized after news broke that he met with a Russian lawyer to obtain damaging information about Clinton in June 2016. Trump came to his son’s defense while the president was in Paris, saying, “most people would have taken that meeting.”

The president also thanked Michael Caputo, a former top Trump campaign adviser, for saying there was no “Russian collusion in our winning campaign.”

The media has been relentless on hammering on about this meeting… some of them are even calling it treason. It is no such thing. They need to read the Constitution and look up the definition of treason. What Donald Trump Jr. did was not even illegal… ill-advised, but not in the least bit against the law. He has been smeared, maligned and lied about non-stop over this for the last week and I’m sick of it. Now, a special counsel will look into this as they should. I am confident that Donald Trump Jr. will be cleared of all these accusations and in the end this may actually boomerang on the left as little things like Podesta’s dealings with Russia will come under scrutiny.

Trump is right when he slams Hillary Clinton and the media over this. She got away with ACTUAL crimes… a whole laundry list of them and she walked on every one of them. There was never any reporting on them to speak of by the leftist media. But one meeting that was probably a naive mistake and they pounce. Especially since it has to do with Russia. And they still have nothing. But it doesn’t stop them from reporting solely on this stupidity 24/7 and not reporting on anything else that is actual news. Just shameful.
