Numerous journalists are worried sick that President Donald Trump incited violence against them during his raucous rally in Phoenix last week.
The New York Times published an article reporting that Trump’s claim reporters are “sick people” shook the media.
The article noted several journalists who claimed the president was going to get them murdered due to his comments. The very apparent concern among journalists led Times columnist Nicholas Kristof to author a sanctimonious piece declaring, “We’re Journalists, Mr. Trump, Not the Enemy.”
With all the worry over Trump supporters coming to kill them, it may come as a surprise to the press that some of their colleagues were beaten and harassed over the weekend by the president’s most violent opponents.
