LevinTV host Mark Levin blasted the media's behavior at a press conference with President Donald Trump Wednesday, saying "kamikaze journalists" allied with the Democratic Party were attacking Trump.
The press conference, held to discuss the results of the midterm elections, was often contentious, with reporters confronting Trump and Trump fighting back in turn. At one point, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta repeatedly asked questions despite being told he was done and pushed the arm of a female White House aide who attempted to take his microphone away. Acosta's press credentials were later revoked by the White House.
"What we saw today in that press conference was a disgrace to this country," Levin said. "These kamikaze journalists obviously in a coordinated attack on this president — they are trying to cripple this presidency, they are trying to sabotage this presidency. It's not going to work, but that's what they're doing."
"They are furious that this blue wave was a blue tinkle last night, because that's all it was."
“You can’t tell the difference between Democrat talking points and the media in this country, because in many respects they're one and the same thing," Levin said.
“I am sick and tired of these media types trying to hijack these press conferences. These press conferences are for the American people,” he added. “CNN, you don’t even have an audience! It's not for you, it's not for MSNBC, and it's not for every harebrained, malcontent, miscreant Democrat liberal dressed up as a journalist. You know we have standards in this country for doctors, for lawyers, for truck drivers, for plumbers, for electricians; what are the standards for journalists?”
