BizPac Review -- It seems like CNN reporter Dana Bash holds Donald Trump to a different standard than she does Hillary Clinton.
With less than two weeks to go before Election Day, the Republican presidential nominee was in Washington D.C. Wednesday for a ribbon cutting at the new Trump International Hotel.
Interviewing Trump in the lobby of his Pennsylvania Avenue hotel, Bash had the nerve to ask the real estate mogul why he took time off from campaigning to attend the ribbon-cutting.
“For people who say you’re taking time out of swing states to go do this, you say?” Bash asked.
Trump, not surprisingly, shut her down.
“I say the following. You have been covering me for the last, long time. I did yesterday 8 stops and 3 major speeches. And I’ve been doing this for weeks straight,” he began.
“I left there for an hour-and-a-half. I’m going to North Carolina right now, then I’m going to Florida, then I’m going up to New Hampshire,” he continued. “For you to ask me that question is actually very insulting because Hillary Clinton does one stop and then goes home and sleeps. And yet you’ll ask me that question. I think it’s a very rude question.”
Many viewers agreed with the GOP nominee and applauded the “classic Trump” take-down on Twitter.
Blog Author's Comments -- Good job Donald Trump, the Clinton News Network reporter needed to be put in her place. In fact you were very polite to the woman, much more so than I would have been. She is simply a troublemaker for Clinton. This was quite mediocre of her. She had an opportunity to ask a question of the presidential candidate and she chose to cover the ribbon cutting ceremony? With all the issues facing this country the critical question to make was about the ribbon cutting?
It shows why she is working for CNN. The media is beyond ignorant. The bias has brought about enough doubt that anyone that believes anything that comes out of their mouths has to be a Hillary supporter. Aren’t there any semi-intelligent, non-biased journalists that do their job, not like we are seeing now, and have been since Trump entered the race for the nomination? He has been on the campaign trail everyday, Hillary took 5 days off saying she was prepping for the debate, before that she had to take time of because she was "sick." Talk about a double standard. It is getting insulting how far the press is going with the bias towards Donald J. Trump.
The bottom line is everything that you're seeing in the Clinton campaign is fake. It's strategized. It's marketed, test marketed, focus grouped. It's scripted, and the script is prepared every day in coordination with members of the media who attend dinners with the Clinton campaign team, where they coordinate strategy. When you read the news, when you watch the news, when you hear the news, except for conservative talk radio, you are actually watching, reading, listening to the Hillary Clinton campaign. And you have to tell yourself that.
