Trump has long despised mainstream media, referring to networks other than Fox News as “fake news” and “the enemy of the people,” and suggesting that he would like to make it easier to file libel suits against reporters.

During the presidential debates in 2016, Trump fought with the moderators on air, at one point demanding that CNN anchor Anderson Cooper stop taking questions from the audience to talk more about Hillary Clinton’s email server.

Joni Ernst rushing to the cameras to gush about attacks on Joe Biden, saying she may have ended up helping the former vice president in her own state.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota after watching the clip of the Iowa Republican blurting, "The Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening, and I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic goers.

‘Sit this one out’: Ivanka Trump’s complaint about ‘elites’ hilariously backfires

Published

on

Ivanka Trump complained about coastal elites to defend her father -- and was swiftly met with furious mockery.

The White House adviser and eldest daughter of President Donald Trump shared a video clip of former Republican strategist Rick Wilson ridiculing the president's "credulous boomer rube" supporters, and complained the attack was derogatory and unfair.

"You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided," Ivanka Trump tweeted. "The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting."
