No need to continue putting up a fight, folks, this one’s in the bag — just ask NBC News.
Donald Trump charged over the weekend that his real opponent in the 2016 presidential election is the media not Hillary Clinton and he took to social media to step up his attacks on the industry.
“If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn’t put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%,” Trump posted Sunday on Twitter.
The GOP nominee insists the media is “protecting” Hillary and spokesperson Katrina Pierson told CNN “the media has been writing the Trump campaign’s obituary for 424 days.”
Right on cue, NBC News all but declared Hillary Clinton the winner on Monday:

Not only has NBC News handed the election to the Democratic nominee, they give it to her going away.
Based on recent polling, the network’s map projections have Clinton receiving 288 electoral votes, which is 18 more than she needs to become the first female president in U.S. history, while Trump receives just 174 votes. Another 76 votes are listed as a “Toss Up.”
Of course, the reaction on social media shows that Trump is in good company in his views of the media … here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
