A majority of Republicans said they believed the news media is "the enemy of the people" rather than "an important part of democracy", in a poll released Tuesday.

 
The poll from Quinnipiac University showed 51% of GOP respondents identified with President Donald Trump's "enemy of the people" line 
 
Tuesday's poll showed 36% of GOP respondents called the news media "an important part of democracy," a much smaller share than any other group listed by Quinnipiac

Quinnipiac consistantly overstates the significance of Republican opinion, but in this case they could be right on the money.

 

37% of Americans identify as Republican or that they lean toward Republican. 51% of 37% is 19%

 

So 19% of Americans buy Trump's lie about "enemy of the People", a term first used by Joe Stalin to justify his purge of the opposition.

 

Which means 81% of Americans do NOT buy Trump's ourtrageous slander of the 4th Estate.

 

Rudi has stated Trump will be "tried in the court of public opinion" regarding his Russian Conspiracies. If true, lil' Lemontop is in DEEP Kimshi as this part of his plan to discredit witnesses seems to have fallen far short of effective.

Trump Cult members remain in steadfast denial of the fact that their leader is repeatedly attacking the free and indpendent press by calling them "an enemy of the people".

Trump Cult Double Standards:

 

Can you imagine what the reaction would have been if President Obama repeatedly called the free press "an enemy of the people"? Trump Cult members would have uploaded thousands of posts to this site, going bonkers over that statement. 

 

However, when their idol and hero in the White House constantly threatens the press, they repeatedly make excuses for their Supreme Leader.


Why would any President (or any American for that matter) object to  a free press? It is essential to our democracy.

 

I assume you have something in mind to whine about besides "Trump Cult". "idol and hero", and "Supreme Leader" but you are not making your point.

The GOPerLords have been drivingtoward this goal since Nixon was forced from office.

If worked. When Reagan deregulated the Savings and Loan industry and his buddies defrauded millions of Seniors out of their life savings with worthless paper, over 250 went to jail, including Ronny's bestest buddies - the Keating 5. thirty years later, jrbush deregulated the banking and Mortgage industry, and his buddies crash the World Economy, drive 8 million American families from their homes and put the country into the worst economic disaster since the last Republican engineered disaster in 1929. But unlike the S&L scandal, this time only ONE person served time, AND HE CONFESSED. Nobody was indicted, nobody was fined and most definately nobody in charge went to jail.

 

Now we've got a gutless draftdodging preppytwit who has conspired against the United States with a hostile foreign government to rig his election, and his lawyer Rudi speaks the truth when he says "there is no TRUTH" - It's all about who is the most credible witness", and the lofo base of the GOP has already decided Trump is INNOCENT, no matter what the FBI says. Rudy was also correct when he told us "this will be tried in the Court of Public Opinion."

 

The GOPers can keep doing this as long as they control Congress, so the solution is:

VOTE OUT THE NRAGOP IN NOVEMBER - IT MAY BE YOUR LAST CHANCE FOR FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY.

Conservatives would be better off if they swore to never ever use the term "biased press". It makes people want to point and laugh.


And why is that? Might it be the famous "giggly defense" so popular among the left here?
