President Donald Trump launched another attack against the New York Times on Wednesday morning in response to a devasting report outlining the president’s attempts to thwart investigations into himself.
“The New York Times reporting is false,” Trump tweeted, offering nothing to counter the Times’ reporting. “They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”
George Conway, who is married to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, asked the Twitterverse to vote on who is more believable: Trump or the New York Times.
“Please vote. And then please retweet (often),” Conway requested. “Who has more Credibility?”
They eagerly complied, with over 210,000 people casting a vote, 93% for The Times, and just 7% for Trump.
It was a no-brainer.
Trump’s increasingly aggressive rhetoric has people concerned about violence against journalists, such as the shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland last summer.
Resisters believe they know who the “enemy of the people” is, and it is not the New York Times.
