GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who won another five primaries last night, increasing his commanding lead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, thanked the media during his long-winded victory speech.
“I want to thank the media. The media’s covered me fair for the last two hours,” Trump said to laughter from the crowd. He then got a little more serious and added that “They’ve been really very fair over the last few weeks.”
Trump’s poke at the media was similar to last week when in the same speech he called them “the most dishonest people in the world,” only to turn around and call them “wonderful,” thanking them for making his candidacy possible.
As long as the media focus on Trump’s positives and downplay or ignore his negatives, he will love and praise them. But as soon as they cross the line, all bets are off on what he may say or do.
