Donald Trump Jr. came out swinging against the mainstream media… over their clear bias when reporting on his dad, President Trump.
The irony of the media attacking actual troops for supporting @realDonaldTrump, their Commander in Chief, but having no problem with 95% of their colleagues donating to Hillary while pretending to be unbiased is why no one trusts the media.

The First Son seemed to be referring to an article from CNN about President Trump’s secret Christmas Day visit to troops in Iraq.
CNN claimed that troops who sought autographs from the President could be violating a law that prohibits federal employees from supporting political candidates while on the job. President Trump has already declared his 2020 presidential run.
However, CNN received swift criticism from conservatives, who pointed out that CNN never cited those concerns in articles about troops seeking an autograph from then-Sen. Barack Obama in the weeks before the 2008 presidential election.
Trump Jr. has emerged as one of his dad’s most powerful surrogates—largely because, like the President, he’s adept at pointing out how clearly hypocritical their critics are in the mainstream media.
