President Trump jokingly suggested during a Texas rally on Monday that the only way to convince the media to dig into Hillary Clinton would be for him to nominate her to the Supreme Court.
Trump’s joke was in response to the intense scrutiny Justice Brett Kavanaugh faced from the media during his confirmation process, during which the media published multiple unconfirmed allegations of sexual misconduct against him. . .
“If you want the fake news media to finally investigate, by the way, by the way …,” the president said, pausing for a “CNN sucks” chant. “Don’t worry, I don’t like them either. But look at this. Look. Just look. Here we are. We are doing a rally for Ted. It’s great. We have a lot of people. Look how many media — this is like the Academy Awards which actually has gone down the tubes. I think we do much better. Look how many. Look at them.”
“Do you recognize many of those happy faces back there? I know every one of them. I know every one of them, and 15 percent of them are great,” he said. “Every one of them. I know every one,” he continued.
“But if you want the fake news to finally investigate Hillary Clinton, we will just have …” Trump added. “I didn’t do it. I didn’t do it! I didn’t do it! So if you want them to investigate, we will just have to nominate Hillary Clinton to the United States Supreme Court. How do you like that idea?” (Read more from “President Trump: Only Way the Media Will Investigate Hillary, Nominate Her to Supreme Court” HERE)
