President Trump’s labeling the media as “fake news” is having an impact.
A poll by YouGov found a majority of President Trump supporters believe the media is the enemy.
The Hill.com reports:
A majority of President Trump’s supporters in a new poll agree with the president’s claim that the media is “the enemy of the American people,” according to new research from YouGov.
According to the data, more than 60 percent of “Trump approvers” said they agreed with the statement, while just about 15 percent of “Trump disapprovers” said they agreed with it, according to BuzzFeed.
The poll reflects the frustration of President Trump backers who are observing the unfair treatment of the president and First Lady Melania Trump by the media.
Unlike other Republican leaders, President Trump does not shy away from taking the media head on through comments and statements on Twitter.
Recently, the media criticized Melania Trump’s White House Christmas decorations.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
The media is attacking First Lady Melania Trump for her White House Christmas decorations, comparing Mrs. Trump to an evil “ice queen” and criticizing her for wearing a coat while she helped decorate a tree.
In contrast, the story noted the positive reaction former President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama received with the way the White House was decorated during their last Christmas at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The fashion world had a different reaction to the Obamas final Christmas decoration display at the White House, which included giant stuffed animals of the Obama dogs and puerile snowmen.
