Martha Raddatz had a bad day filling in for George Stephanopoulos. She just couldn’t get anyone to take the bait, except other mainstream liberal media shills, to bash Trump over his early morning tweet against CNN.
Martha tried to bring Trump’s tweet into every interview she did on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” but Thomas Bossert handled Martha and the tweet like a pro. Martha, not so much.
Here’s the video:

Martha tried to create a false threat by the President, suggesting that he is encouraging violence against the media. And she tried to get Thomas Bossert to buy into the narrative.
Business Insider has details:
“There’s a lot of cable news shows that reach directly into hundreds of thousands of viewers and they’re really not always very fair to the president,” Bossert said after he finished watching the video. “So I’m pretty proud of the president for developing a Twitter and a social media platform where he can talk directly to the American people.”
Bossert then praised Trump as “the most genuine president and most non-politician president that we’ve seen in my lifetime” and lauded his ability to communicate with voters.
“He certainly can communicate to the people, but I want to ask you: Is that the kind of communication you want, that he’s beating up on somebody? That he’s beating up on the media?” Raddatz asked. “You’re in charge of homeland security there. That seems like a threat.”
Bossert replied that it was “certainly not” a threat. “I think that no one would perceive that as a threat; I hope they don’t,” he added. Reiterating his previous statement, he said Trump “has a right” to respond to cable news platforms that he views are unfair to him.
“You don’t think that’s a threat to anyone?” Raddatz asked. “You don’t think that’s sending a message: ‘Do that to the media. Do that to CNN’?”
“No, I certainly don’t,” Bossert replied. He said the president was expressing himself “genuinely” and that he had been elected by people because they found him to be someone they could “understand and relate to.”
Once again, the liberal mainstream media tries, and fails, to create “Fake News” to create a false narrative.
