“You can’t make this BS up anymore. This is a real headline, you think there’s any bias in the main stream media and from big tech???🙄 You’ve got to be freaking kidding me! The hatred that they have for @realdonaldtrump and our family is absolutely disgusting,” he wrote.
“That they could try to diminish all he’s accomplished in life and as president, and that they will try to pretend he’s not POTUS shows their derangement knows no bounds… Hey, they’ve been doing it for four years why stop now? Journalism as a profession is dead. It has been replaced with activism and therefore doesn’t offer anything to anyone looking to actually inform themselves.”
