So, we can count on one hand — maybe even on one finger — the number of times Nancy Pelosi has been right about anything. But we’ll be damned if she didn’t nail it here:
Pelosi, on Trump & the press: “May I say something you’re not going to like? I think the press loves him. All day on TV —and I don’t even watch TV, except sports. But he says somebody had a horse face —all day we hear about that. You just give him all day” https://t.co/NzPxcrkPJ8

The truth hurts. But that doesn’t make it any less true.

She couldn't be more correct. Trump has been a boom for media and he used them very overtly for free ads during his election campaign… continues to this day… very sad

Yep. The media decrying Trump’s “attacks on our democracy” on a daily basis are the same media who gave him millions of dollars in free advertising in the 2016 primaries and pushed to make him the GOP nominee. Sorry, media, but you did this to yourselves. With plenty of help from Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, of course.
