For Donald Trump, there’s nothing tastier than mainstream media tears.
During this “Thank You” tour of Cincinnati on Thursday, the president-elect hit back at mainstream media who had repeatedly written him off and smeared him with biased reports.
Trump blasted the “dishonest media” for bleating for months that he “had no path to victory” while citing skewed polls like the one below:
Specifically, Trump mocked a “major anchor” for “crying” on election night when she realized that Trump was going to win.
“How about when a major anchor who hosted a debate started crying when she realized that we won? Tears!” Trump recalled.
“And you know what she doesn’t understand? Things are going to be much better now.”
Trump was referring to ABC News reporter Martha Raddatz, a Hillary shill who looked depressed as she tried to come to terms with Trump’s improbable victory on election night.
Raddatz appeared more than a little concerned as she questioned Trump’s understanding of the geopolitical conflicts roiling the Middle East:
“Donald Trump, I questioned what he would do about Syria and his understanding of military policy and civilian/military divide,” Raddatz bloviated (see video starting at 0:30). “I don’t know that he really has a plan for what he’s going to do there.”
Raddatz was widely ridiculed on social media for her over-the-top, emotional, and heavily biased coverage of the election.
Raddatz had previously skewered Trump while acting the role of a debate “moderator.”
Because Raddatz and other mainstream media didn’t even try to hide their bias against Trump and for Hillary Clinton, much of the public lost confidence in the media.
A recent poll shows 94% of the public do NOT trust the media.

With Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton now actively pushing for futile, expensive voter recounts, it begs the question: Should we send Martha Raddatz a box of tissues for her next live broadcast?
