Palin Applauds Trump’s ‘Courage’ In Slamming The Media

Sarah Palin, a strong supporter of Donald Trump during the race for the White House, celebrated the president-elect’s criticism of news reporters on Wednesday.

According to Newsmax, the former Alaska governor declared on Facebook: “APPRECIATION fills our heart when our new president exudes our collective red, white and blue courage in the face of purveyors of yellow journalism. Press members have worked as a herd of lost little lazy sheep. The herd is now decimated.”

Palin’s post continued: “When Trump takes on corrupt lying lapdog media it is vindication and validation for those without a microphone who’ve been shot by reporters engaged in politics of personal destruction. These ‘journalists’ — bad characters that they are — hurt our nation tremendously; they disrespect those who fought and died to protect America's freedom of the press; they spit upon the graves of our veterans. We deem those reporters and their publications irrelevant now. HOPE in this arena soars upon seeing a fearless leader take on injustice … America’s challenges can now be tackled with seriousness. The impossible burden of dealing with unethical mediums is off our shoulder.”

At a press conference Wednesday morning, Trump called CNN and BuzzFeed “fake news” because the outlets published stories alleging that the Russian government has compiled damaging information about him. BuzzFeed reported that the president-elect has been accused of “sexual deviance,” which prompted Trump to call the website “a failing pile of garbage.”
