Pence blasts media’s hyper-criticism of Trump
While campaigning for votes at an event in New Hampshire, Pence slammed what he called biased media coverage, which he said is incessantly preoccupied with focusing its attention on Trump’s “semantics” and “word choices” — while doing its best to cover-up the recurring problems Clinton is dealing with as the November election rapidly approaches.
“I’ve got to be honest with you, lately I’ve had to turn on the television with a stick,” Pence mused in front of a crowd of approximately 200 at a town hall meeting in the Granite State Thursday, according to TheBlaze. “It’s like two-on-one most days, with the media doing most of Hillary’s work for her.”
The Indiana governor promised New Englanders that if elected, his running mate would act as “negotiator in chief,” contrary to the message America’s press is disseminating.
Getting the word out
Pence impressed to attendees that the solution to the outpouring of negative media coverage about Trump is the American people.
“[Trump] is winning the hearts and minds [of Americans],” he insisted to the Northeast crowd, emphasizing that the answer to all of the media bias is the average Trump supporter.
“The most powerful media in America is you — alright?” Pence pleaded with those in attendance. “So, I mean, word of mouth has always been and will always be the most powerful form of communication, because when you sit down with a neighbor and friend who has known you for years, you sit down over a cup of coffee, you stop somebody at your place of worship, or you run into somebody at the grocery store, you stop somebody at work and you just say, ‘Hey, you know, I just was with Mike the other day and he told us to tell somebody, so I’m just going to tell you, I’m voting for Donald Trump and here’s why.’”
The governor from the Midwest insisted that the media’s smear campaign on Trump and continual promotion of Clinton can and will be defeated when Americans stand up to voice the true character and merit of the presidential candidates and their campaigns.
“All the front pages in the world [don’t compare to the credibility of the average voter],” Pence contended.
A candid or concealatory candidate?
The conservative from the Hoosier State also praised Trump for his candid and sincere nature — one he said is much needed, but sadly lacking, with most politicians today … including Clinton.
“[He is] a doer in a game usually reserved for talkers, and when Donald Trump does his talking, he doesn’t go tiptoeing around those thousands of rules of political correctness that the media and the elites impose,” Pence continued. “He tells it like it is, and the American people hear him loud and clear.”
In an attempt to prove his case about the lack of honesty plaguing progressives on the ballot in the state of New Hampshire, Pence brought up how Gov. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) repetitively danced around answering a question about Clinton’s honesty in the midst of the scandals surfacing during her latest White House bid. Trying to defeat Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte for her Senate seat, Hassan recently appeared on CNN to express her political views to voters, but was caught between a rock and a hard place when asked about Clinton’s character.
Pence stressed that Hassan avoided the question posed by her interviewer — as to whether or not she believes the former secretary of state is honest — three times.
Using Hassan’s failure to address an issue with the American public, Pence went on to urge those attending the New Hampshire town hall to vote for Ayotte. Despite the fact that Trump was a previous critic of Ayotte, the billionaire announced earlier this month that he is endorsing her reelection campaign.
Even though Ayotte has not yet declared her formal endorsement of Trump for president, she announced that she will be voting for him against Clinton in November.
