The media has made everything racial. It’s John Lewis that went out in the arena. It’s John Lewis that went out in a public place and shot his mouth off. It’s John Lewis that defamed somebody with no proof and some made-up “pee pee gate” dossier. And then in this upside down social justice warrior snowflake world, Trump’s bad because he responds, and that’s an attack. No, John Lewis attacked Donald Trump. The congressman attacked the president, the president nicely responded, and then they made a big deal out of it. I mean it just shows it’s the craziest crap. They must think the viewers and listeners are dumb, but they’re not. It’s why CNN and others don’t have any audience, why The New York Times is collapsing, because people have common sense. They’re like, “John Lewis attacked Donald Trump, Donald Trump said ‘Hey work with me, this isn’t constructive,’ that’s not even an attack and then they say that he attacked him first.” I mean it’s lies on top of lies on top of lies on top of lies. So I put out an article, a report entitled John Lewis is a lying pile of garbage using Trump’s term for BuzzFeed. And it’s true. These are all just lying piles of garbage. I don’t care what color they are. But the media covering for John Lewis is a lying pile of garbage. They’re all going bankrupt, nobody reads them, nobody likes them so that’s what you call a pile of garbage. I’m just calling it like it is.
