Incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer doesn’t think the media treat President-elect Donald Trump with the respect he deserves, while they cheer on Democrats who oppose the next Commander-in-Chief.
Spicer made his comments during a recent interview with The Hill’s Joe Concha.
The liberal media went all-out to defeat Trump last year, failing miserably in the end, and now find themselves unsure of how much access they will have to the White House starting January 20.
While Spicer said there has been some improvement in the media’s coverage of Trump, he feels the President-elect hasn’t been treated properly:
“There’s some positive aspects here and there, but largely it still continues to not treat him with the respect that he deserves.”
“I think for a lot of folks inside the beltway, and inside pundit-world, they don’t fully appreciate the understanding that he has of where the American people are. They continue to mock him in ways, when it frankly just shows the lack of understanding that they have of where the American people are and what they think.”
Spicer also commented on the media’s liberal bias.
“There are countless examples of the media engaging—overtly or covertly—cheering on Democrats and there’s no accountability. But it’s also not even frowned upon,” he said.
That’s because liberal media bias is an accepted practice that is deeply entrenched—especially among the majority of the White House Press Corps—and is a major reason that the Trump administration could very well continue to choose to bypass them by using Twitter and other forms of social media, to give the public an unfiltered view of their policies.
