'When you're a star you can do anything', said Donald Trump…
What would our world be without a few islands of credible journalism and its commitment to informing the nation? The New York Times is one such organization and a media outlet which has received much scorn from Donald Trump.
With consideration of the video and the typically Trump message from the video, I ask: "Which media outlet did Trump seek yesterday when he offered up comment about a fake news story regarding former NSC head Susan Rice?" He sure didn't seek Breitbart (AKA "Trumpbart"). He didn't even seek out Fox News. What does that say about his personal credibility or lack thereof? He summons the "failing" New York Times.
Over the past few days, the New York Times reported Fox News and O’Reilly have paid about $13 million since 2002 to five women to settle complaints about O'Reilly alleged sexually abusive behavior. The Times also reported more women have come forth with similar complaints.
What would you think the nation's 45th President would have to say about the settlements from his personal find and his favorite cable news network?
What follows pretty well nails the Trump support for O'Reilly."I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person,” said Trump of the O'Reilly Factor host while speaking from his desk in the Oval Office. “I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”
