Trump’s Loyal Voters Aren’t Buying ‘Shameful’ Media Spin: Report

As President Trump reaches his 100-day mark in office, an unfriendly news media has done much to undermine his efforts. Trump voters appear to be ignoring it all, says Ford O'Connell, a political strategist and an adjunct professor at the George Washington University Graduate School of Political Management.

“Employing a blitzkrieg-style deluge of misleading headlines, both online and in print, coupled with a heavy diet of 89 percent negative broadcast network news coverage of Trump, the groupthink of the liberal media bubble has tried mightily to portray President Trump’s first 100 days in office as the worst political disaster of the last half century,” Mr. O'Connell tells The Washington Times.

“How else are we to explain the fact that President Trump has the lowest approval rating since 1945, yet his supporters express little-to-no buyer’s remorse and that if the 2016 presidential election were held today, Trumpwould win the popular vote over Hillary Clinton, according to the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll?” he continued.

“Some things you just can’t make up, but that hasn’t stopped the mainstream media from trying to push their hostile views about Trump on to the American voter. Luckily for Trump, his supporters are not buying the shameful spin,” Mr. O'Connell said.

Despite the constant pushback from journalists and news organizations, the president still has clear and positive options, however.
