A Trump supporter from Texas decided to show his displeasure with the liberal media—in particular, with ABC News’ coverage of Russian interference with the election and allegations of collusion between Russia and Trump—by taking out a billboard blasting the network and reaffirming his support for the President.
“I grew up with you. We are through. The Russians didn’t elect Donald Trump. I did,” the billboard reads.
The billboard was paid for by Kyle Courtney from Boerne, TX, according to his company Wellstar Groundwater Technologies.
Courtney released the following statement to News4 in San Antonio:
“ABC News was the only channel I watched as a child growing up in Texas but I think they have lost touch with America and forgotten the working man. They don’t represent our voice anymore. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was funded by the Clinton Foundation in close coordination with the media, and now we’re seeing them try to fix what they couldn’t fix during the election. They are doing everything they can, night after night, to create narratives and sway people’s direction to impeach Donald Trump. Our democracy is at stake when a major political party and the media are in bed together. I’m not asking anyone to boycott the Democratic party. I’m not in the brainwashing business, but the liberal media is.”
The billboard is expected to remain up for two months, according to a company spokesman, and Courtney is considering setting up a GoFundMe page to assist others in placing a similar billboard ad in their area.
