The Mainstream Press has decided to push a video of Trump mocking a protestor by saying the protestor had a serious weight problem.

Security carts out a protester, who Trump says “has a serious weight problem.” “Go home, start exercising.”
Trump then says he has created a movement “built on love.”

Trump just made fun of a protestor for being overweight, so that’s how tonight is going.

Of course, this clip leaves out context. (Even a CNN reporter realized this)
Trump added a few seconds later, “Got a bigger problem than I do. Got a bigger problem than all of us.” (Not sure if he was saying he also has a weight problem, but just noting for fairness.) https://t.co/n7t0FX8Rfn

It is things like this that make Conservatives hate the press. Is this a huge story? No. It is just the fact that the Press goes out of its way to make a mountain out of a molehill and then lies about it that is a major problem.
The reason for this narrative is simply to attack the President and make him seem like such a mean person.
The bottom line from this story is that the President was making a simple joke but I’m sure what should’ve been a nonstory will get wall to wall coverage.
