Trump Mocks White Privilege – Journos Predictably Twist His Words

On Thursday, excerpts from journalist Bob Woodward’s new book “Rage” were released, where he asked President Trump if he felt that white privilege has isolated him.

Woodward asked, “[D]o you have any sense that that privilege has isolated and put you in a cave, to a certain extent, as it put me and I think lots of white, privileged people in a cave? And that we have to work our way out of it to understand the anger and the pain particularly Black people feel in this country?” and Trump responded that, “[N]o. You really drank the Kool-Aid, didn’t you? Just listen to you. Wow. No, I don’t feel that at all,” according to the Federalist.

The Federalist reports:

Despite the layered, two-pronged question, many media outlets took Trump’s response to Woodward out of context, asserting that Trump ignores white privilege. Headlines from The Hill, NBC News, and Business Insider all falsely claimed that Trump “feels no responsibility” to “understand the pain of Black Americans.”

Some stories merely published Trump’s response without even including the original question, while others capitalized on Trump’s response as a demonstration of what they label as an “apparent disconnect to the racial reckoning in the country and the Black Lives Matter protests.”

But, as usual, the media lies in order to make the President look bad.

 

 

This is one of the thousands of examples of why the media truly is the enemy of the people.
