Tomi Lahren joined Jesse Watters on “Watters’ World” to react to a Media Research Center study that found the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts overwhelmingly described President Trump with negative language.
The study “looked at every broadcast evening news story about the president from January 1 through September 10,” according to the MRC.
During the sample period, Trump was called “angry” 23 times, “furious” 17 times, “outraged” eight times, “venting” five times, “infuriated” five times and “livid” three times. The president was said to be “lashing out” a whopping 53 times, on a “tirade” eight times and was “erupting” three times during the nearly nine-month sample, according to the study.
“They’re projecting themselves upon the president,” Lahren said. “If you look at the descriptors they use for Donald Trump — ‘fuming,’ ‘outrage,’ ‘venting’ — that’s basically the Democratic Party and mainstream media all together in one package.”
She said many in the mainstream media still haven’t accepted that Donald Trump is president, and the language they use to describe the president actually reveals more about themselves.
She added that Trump’s outspoken, in-your-face style has actually been effective, and he’s been able to check off numerous campaign promises.
“Maybe his tweets work, maybe his name-calling works, maybe we didn’t elect him to be nice, maybe we elected him to get things done,” Lahren said. “And guess what? He’s doing it, which is why the mainstream media is ‘outraged,’ ‘venting’ and ‘fuming.'”
