During an interview with Klaus Schwab in Davos, Switzerland today, President Trump called out the unfair treatment he’s gotten since he stopped being a businessman and became a “politician”. Trump then told the crowd that the media has been “nasty, and mean, and vicious” with him.
The other thing is, I’ve always seemed to get, for whatever reason, a disproportionate amount of press or media. Throughout my whole life…somebody will explain someday why, but I’ve always gotten a lot. And as a businessman, I’ve always been treated really well by the press. You know, the numbers speak and things happen. But I’ve always had, you know, a very good press. And it wasn’t until I became a politician, that I realized how nasty, how mean and how vicious, and how fake, the press can be. Trump paused and looked back at the press and joked, “As the cameras start going off in the background.” You can hear the audience laugh and then you can hear boos coming from the back of the room. Although the media never pans to the back of the room, the boos seem to be directed at the media. President Trump then recognized his “team of tremendous people” as a reason for the success he’s had in his first term as President.
CNN took the opportunity to use a shortened clip of President Trump’s speech, in a disgusting attempt to make it appear as though the love-fest for Trump we’ve all been watching in Davos was just a figment of our imagination, and that the business leaders who were just praising him, were suddenly booing him in defense of the fake news media.
Here’s what CNN posted with their Youtube video. (For the record, it’s “Davos” and not “Davis” Switzerland):

Twitter user Shawn Spain called out the lying fake news media outlets who tried to spin the audience’s reaction to Trump’s remarks about the fake news media:
