Donald Trump on Tuesday continued his attacks on the U.S. media and praised the removal of journalists “like a little bag of popcorn” at a rally yesterday in Moon Township, Pennsylvania.
Trump said that seen journalists being taken away from live broadcasts is a “beautiful sight”.
“They were grabbing them left and right. Sometimes they grabbed, they grabbed one guy – ‘I’m a reporter, I’m a reporter!’ – get out of here. They threw him aside like he was a little bag of popcorn,” the president said, as attendants to the rally laughed.
“But honestly, when you watch the crap that we’ve all had to take so long, when you see that, it’s actually, you don’t want to do that. But when you see it, it’s actually a beautiful sight. It’s a beautiful sight.”
