Speaking on ‘America Now’ last week, host Buck Sexton called-out the mainstream media for politicizing President Trump’s “sacred” phone call with a Gold Star Widow; adding the press was either “stupid” or “completely dishonest” when it comes to covering the President.
“It didn’t take very long for this whole story to change very dramatically, with regard to President Trump’s phone call to a Gold Star widow,” said Buck. “I have to wonder, are the people at CNN and MSNBC covering this story, are they idiots? Are they actually that stupid? Or are they just so completely dishonest? So lacking in principles and integrity that they saw an opportunity to smear the President and they went with it.”
“I’m able to figure out that it really doesn’t seem like –in fact I would go so far as to say it doesn’t seem possible to me- that the President of the United States would call a Gold Star Widow of his own volition; is it even possible that the President was ‘disrespectful’?” he asked.
“All of these different news organizations that ran with that story, the next day you had General Kelly come out, and that really through them for a loop,” Sexton said. “He says that he instructed President Trump on how to make the call and was present for the call.”
“The media was left wondering, ‘Uh oh, what do we do now?’” said Buck. “They realize that Trump is an existential threat not just to their power and their careers, but to their sense of their own importance.”
