Just a sample of the sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa. I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt. We should not treat our fellow Americans this way. The press is not the enemy. pic.twitter.com/IhSRw5Ui3R

And then another libmedia drooltard chimed in to support his fellow propagandist:
In a now-deleted tweet, Caputo commented on the video, saying, “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.”
In another deleted tweet, he responded to a tweet castigating his mockery of Trump supporters. “Oh no! I made fun of garbage people jeering at another person as they falsely accused him of lying and flipped him off. Someone fetch a fainting couch,” Caputo wrote.
“Oh no! Some real Americans called Acosta out to his face for his open contempt of them, his and his network’s dishonest fake-news “journalistic” malpractice, and his general asswipery—verbally, without resorting to actual violence like liberals do. Someone fetch him a fresh clean diaper!”
Right back atcha, asshole.
Caputo then apologized for his insulting outburst, which, who cares. Insty offers thoughts:
Two points: (1) Yes, this is what the press thinks about Trump supporters, and this now-deleted tweet was an honest reflection of that. It’s totally hypocritical for people like Acosta to clutch their pearls about Trump’s “rhetoric” given how they treat, and talk about, his supporters. And as for their fear that Trump’s “rhetoric” might lead to violence, note how they skip right over the fact that Democrat James Hodgkinson shot GOP Congressman Steve Scalise as he tried to massacre the Republican House leadership.
(2) What’s worse is, Caputo’s actually one of the better political reporters, willing to report stuff that hurts Democrats and helps Republicans without sweeping it under the rug. That’s good, but if he thinks this way, what are the rest like?
And yes, he offered a solid apology. But that doesn’t change the attitude that his original statement revealed, or the fact that it seems to be widely shared among his press colleagues.
Fuck Caputo, fuck Acosta, fuck the whole filthy lot of them. The loathing and contempt for normal Americans their ilk can’t seem to help themselves expressing is reciprocated in full measure out here. Whining and bleating about “hate” and “violence” coming from these oozing chancres is pretty rich considering their own ongoing incitement to violence—incitement which has resulted in actual, y’know, hate and violence.
538, motherfuckers. That ain’t some prissy journo-dink’s fear or fantasy; that’s an actual, hard number of verifiable media applause for acts of shitlib violence against their opposition. In one corner, we have that; in the other, we have people making Wee Jimmy Winky wet himself by yelling “CNN sucks” in his pinched little face.
One of these things is NOT like the other.
“The press is not the enemy”? Like bleeding hell it ain’t. These guys are just upset that now we know it, and they’re shit-scared of the possibility of getting some of their own splashed back on them at last.
Well, cry me a river, you lying pissant pricks. This is just the opening bell; you sniveling curs have got a lot more like it and worse coming, and you’ve earned everything you might get, plus some.
