A reporter at the White House got more than she asked for this week when she asked President Trump if he felt he was responsible for causing any political violence. He turned it right around on her told her that it is the media which is doing that.
The Daily Caller reports:
REPORTER ACCUSES TRUMP OF ENCOURAGING POLITICAL VIOLENCE — TRUMP FLIPS THE SCRIPT
President Trump had a blunt response for a reporter accusing him of motivating political violence with his speech.
There has been a rash of politically motivated terror in the past two weeks. A right-wing zealot has been arrested in coordination with mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats and media targets, and a Synagogue was attacked by an anti-Semite, killing 11 members of the congregation.
As Trump was leaving the White House Friday, a reporter yelled, “You’re encouraging politically motivated violence with the way you speak.”
Trump pointed at the reporter and shot back, “You’re creating violence by your question.”
The reporter gasped, “Me?” and Trump replied, “You are creating — you.”

You can hear the shock in her voice. The media has no idea of the role they are playing in political strife.
