During an interview with Sean Hannity, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway was asked if the media's treatment of Trump has been "disrespectful."

Conway agreed, and in fact said she believes that not only is the media showing a lack of respect for the president and the office he holds, but it's inspiring violence against innocent people.

“It never took on the aura of respect that it deserved, and if you are not showing the President and his main spokespeople respect, then you’re not showing the office respect, and you are inciting mob mentality if not mob violence. You are encouraging people to go out there and unpeacefully protest and block airport entrances for people who are going to visit a sick parent and can’t make their flight, or are going for a bereavement call and can’t make their flight.”

"There's nothing peaceful, and nothing democratic about those who are out there just really trying to relitigate the election and protesting things they know nothing about," added Conway.

Indeed, what the media are often calling "protests" have been riots where people who support Trump have been attacked, and property belonging to innocent businesses has been destroyed.
