At his Monday night rally in Tampa, Fla., Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump continued his verbal assault on the “dishonest” media, firing up a deafening crowd of over 20,000 people.
Trump pointed at the media members assembled in the back of the audience, identifying them as the enemy.
“These people are among the most dishonest people in the world, the media,” Trump said before a frenzied crowd. “They are the worst.”
Trump’s audience responded in force, roaring in a singular, defiant voice. The boos and jeers heard from the crowd took over the rally, filling the arena with chants of “Donald Trump!”
Trump asserted that the media members wouldn’t turn their cameras to capture the crowd “because they don’t want to.” He said they don’t want those watching to know the size of the crowd, the real amount of his supporters.
Trump’s allegation echoes others who suspect media bias in its treatment of Trump’s rallies versus those of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Once the crowd quieted, Trump landed several blows against the media and Clinton, pointing to the revelations courtesy of the leaked Podesta emails. He alleged that the media is on Clinton’s side, alluding to examples of apparent media collusion with Clinton.
Trump emphasized Clinton’s foreign policy plans, which he called “the plans of a child, the plans of someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.”
Trump also pointed to discussions within the Podesta emails regarding oversampling of polls, as part of his onslaught on what he’s called a “rigged” election.
With the crowd at fever pitch, Trump pivoted to the recent revelation that a close ally of Clinton gave a significant donation to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.
“Listen to this: the FBI is investigating Clinton – or as I would call her, Crooked Hillary – and virtually her best friend and closest ally gives $675,000 in campaign contributions to the person who’s married to person who’s doing the FBI investigations,” Trump said. “No wonder they found nothing wrong! How does that look?”
The Republican nominee criticized the decision of John Bentel, former director of information resource management of the State Department’s executive secretariat, to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights over 90 times when asked about his involvement with Clinton’s emails.
Throughout the rally, Trump’s one-two punch emphasized the perceived corruption of the media, and the allegations and intimations surfacing from the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s private email server.
“The system is rigged,” Trump declared. “The best evidence that the system is rigged is the fact that Hillary Clinton, despite her many crimes, was even allowed to run for president in the first place.”
