On Sunday’s edition of “Meet the Press,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., took a swipe at President Trump for calling many outlets of the Democrat-media complex enemies of the American people.
According to Reuters:
The international order established after World War Two was built in part on a free press, McCain said in an excerpt of an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” that was released in advance of the full Sunday morning broadcast.
“I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he told interviewer Chuck Todd from an international security conference in Munich. “But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It’s vital.”
“If you want to preserve – I’m very serious now – if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press. And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That’s how dictators get started,” he continued.
“They get started by suppressing free press. In other words, a consolidation of power. When you look at history, the first thing that dictators do is shut down the press. And I’m not saying that President Trump is trying to be a dictator. I’m just saying we need to learn the lessons of history,” McCain said.
Here’s video of his comments:
It’s not the first time McCain has bashed Trump. Last week, he attacked the President while speaking in Germany.
Now, he seems to be okay with a lying media that constantly puts out false and misleading information in order to fuel anti-Trump hate.
