Trump Campaign Criticizes Media Over Trump Jr. ‘Holocaust Joke’
Donald Trump’s campaign lashed out at the media on Thursday after some construed a comment from Donald Trump Jr. as a Holocaust joke.
Trump Jr. said during an interview on Wednesday that the media protected the Democratic National Committee as it sought to force Sen. Bernie Sanders from the primary race earlier and added that “if Republicans were doing that, they’d be warming up the gas chamber right now.”
Trump Jr.’s comments came during an appearance on a Philadelphia talk radio station, where he said the media has also gone out of its way to protect Hillary Clinton throughout the length of her presidential run.
“The media has been her number one surrogate in this. Without the media, this wouldn’t even be a contest, but the media has built her up,” Trump Jr. said on WPHT radio. “They’ve let her slide on every indiscrepancy, on every lie, on every DNC game trying to get Bernie Sanders out of this thing. If Republicans were doing that, they’d be warming up the gas chamber right now.”
