Trump wants to blame everyone but himself for his failings. The press is more truthful than the president. While the press isn't perfect, they do not blatantly lie and then stand behind those lies as fact assuming that the public is too stupid to check behind them. Within this speech the president misquoted himself as though we didn't have recorded evidence of what he actually said about Charlottesville! We need to be careful of this kind of rhetoric against the press. Trump's attacks on the free press are sounding a little bit too much like Hitler for me to be comfortable.
