Conservative author and columnist Ann Coulter went after the media in her latest column, and referred to Donald Trump’s treatment by the press as “media rape.”
In her column headlined, “GOP Blames Victim Of Media Rape,” Coulter also took on Republican naysayers for blaming the victim.
“Every single news outlet is dedicated to hysterically denouncing Trump, every minute of every day, while cooing at Hillary,” Coulter said. “Now we find out that another honored guest at Hillary events is the father of Omar Mateen, the Muslim jihadist who murdered 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando a few months ago.”
She compared the media’s silence on the Mateen endorsement to its hysteria over David Duke’s endorsement of the Republican presidential nominee.
“Is David Duke’s father given VIP seating at Trump events? (As long as you mention it, did David Duke gun down 49 people in June? Or ever? Or anyone?)” she continued. “A Google search of Trump and David Duke produces more than 11 million hits. A Google search of Hillary and Omar Mateen gets a few hundred thousand hits.”
As a result of the media’s obsession with lambasting Trump, “the only news you’ll be getting from now until the election is the media’s own insane interpretation of every little thing Trump says or does.”
After addressing the press, she went after the “sissy conservatives who have never faced one minute of press hostility [and who] blame the victim, saying it’s Trump’s fault for giving the media openings to twist his words.”
“There’s no strategy for overcoming this level of media hostility,” Coulter said. “Trump has made some mistakes during this campaign, but he hasn’t done anything wrong for months now. He could say ‘yes,’ and the media would change the question to, ‘Are you a child molester?'”
She then likened conservatives who go after Trump to those who blame the rape victim for their attire.
“Craven Republicans who blame Trump for the media’s lies may as well blame a rape victim for wearing a short skirt.” she said. “Except with Trump, it’s the Muslim standard: They’re blaming a woman’s rape on being a woman.”
