A FOX News host just attacked the media to shield Trump from blame for New Zealand mosque massacre

The right-wing media machine has kicked into overdrive to try to conceal and distract from the fact that President Donald Trump’s name and racist rhetoric are featured prominently in the manifest of the white supremacist who slaughtered nearly fifty Muslims last night in Christchurch, New Zealand.

FOX’s Jesse Watters showed the extreme lengths they were willing to go to protect Trump when he accused the media of “lying” about Trump’s role in the massacre and instead tried to blame China and “climate change” for inspiring the killings, rather than the racist anti-immigration rhetoric which the President of the United States was again promoting just this very afternoon.

“The manifesto, if you read it, does not attribute this guy’s philosophy to Donald Trump” sneered the insufferable Watters… “this guy was an eco-nationalist, meaning he was a racist…he said he’s not a conservative, he’s not a Nazi and like Greg said, he was celebrating these whacko European mass shooters more than anything, so for the media to link Donald Trump and frame Donald Trump is so irresponsible and is in fact what the guy wanted!”

What is actually irresponsible is the right-wing’s insistence on whitewashing and obfuscating the bloody consequences of their propaganda when the blame largely lies with them for inciting this kind of hate and driving people to commit these kinds of heinous acts.

Join millions calling for AG Barr to resign after he defied his constitutional obligations to protect Trump!
