OPINION: Many in the media are now trying to blame President Trump and his supporters for the Democrat violence that’s been raging for nearly 100 days now.
That’s the new “spin” from not just the media, but also Team Biden, which has made a massive mess of things by promoting and then ignoring the riots happening in Democrat-run cities all over the nation.
The Democrats and their cohorts in the media are now pushing this half-crocked notion that it’s actually Trump supporters who are causing all the violence. How do you think that narrative will play out with the American people who have been watching all of this unfold in real-time for 90-plus days?
During a presser today, CNN tried to push this talking point by claiming it’s Trump supporters who are inciting violence. President Trump wasn’t having it, and he silenced CNN’s Kaitlin Collins by reminding her that one of her supporters killed a man.
President Trump fired back at CNN’s Kaitlan Collins after the homophobic blogger blamed Trump supporters for the left-wing violence that erupted following George Floyd’s May 25 death.
At a White House press conference, Trump condemned the riots by Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs that have been ravaging Portland for the past 94 days.
Last weekend, self-confessed Antifa/BLM supporter Michael Reinoehl shot and killed Trump supporter Aaron Danielson (a.k.a. – Jay Bishop).
Danielson was a Blue Lives Matter advocate and a member of the conservative activist group Patriot Prayer.
The President also blasted Joe Biden for refusing to denounce the murder and the nonstop left-wing violence.
That’s when Kaitlan asked: “Do you also want to take this chance to condemn what your supporters did in Portland?”
Collins was parroting the latest Democratic talking point, which is to shift the blame for the leftist riots on Trump supporters.
The President fired back: “YOUR supporters — and they are your supporters indeed — shot a young gentleman and killed him. Not with paint, but with a bullet. It’s disgraceful.”
Objective reporting for the educated American.

President Trump has hit his stride. He looks strong, he’s fighting back (with facts), and he’s relating to the American people.
Meanwhile, Biden’s camp is a total wreck. They have no message except “Orange Man Bad,” and the only people they appeal to are the radical kooks on the fringe.
The “Trump supporters are causing violence” narrative isn’t going to work. The media and Democrats have been silent on the rioting for over three months now, and the moment they pipe up, they blame Trump-supporting patriots?
It’s shameful and desperate, and the American people can see right through this nonsense.
