GOP candidate Donald Trump has made no secret of his disdain for the media, which has been a large part of his appeal to voters who are tired of the pervasive liberal bias. He had security escort Univision anchor/amnesty activist Jorge Ramos from a press conference for being disruptive, and, according to some, he turned his audience against a young, female reporter in a rage by calling her out in the crowd.
According to some speeches, Trump estimates that 75 percent of the media is “absolute scum.” At a rally tonight in Grand Rapids, Mich., though, he made it clear that he’d never have them killed. Putin, maybe, but not Trump.

Ok so for the record, Donald Trump would never kill a journalist. So there's that.

Comforting: @realDonaldTrump says he would “never kill journalists." “But I do hate them. some of them are such lying, disgusting people."

Leaving aside Trump's alleged hate for the media (whatever, good for him!), do think it's weird we're in a "I would never kill them" space.
