so on top of saying "When the media lies to the people I will never let them get away with it", Trump spoke about a terrorist attack the day before in Sweden...that didn't happen. And blamed it on immigrants, naturally.

The latest salvo in Donald Trump’s war on discernible reality has arrived in the form of a “Mainstream Media Accountability Survey” released by his campaign committee yesterday.
[...]
Other questions, such as “Do you believe that if Republicans were obstructing Obama like Democrats are doing to President Trump, the mainstream media would attack Republicans?” serve as the polling equivalent of encountering a Lovecraftian cosmic monster whose otherworldly construction and implications cannot be fully understood by the human intellect without resulting in total madness.

1. Do you believe that the mainstream media has reported unfairly on our movement?
Answer: No
2. Do you trust MSNBC to report fairly on Trump's presidency?
Answer: Yes
3. Do you trust CNN to report fairly on Trump's presidency?
Answer: Yes
4. Do you trust Fox News to report fairly on Trump's presidency?
Answer: No
5. On which issues does the mainstream media do the worst job of representing Republicans? (Select as many that apply.)
Answer: None
6. Which television source do you primarily get your news from?
Answer: Out of the four presented, Local News
7. Do you use a source not listed above? T
Answer: he printed press
8. Which online source do you use the most?
Answer: A variety
9. Do you trust the mainstream media to tell the truth about the Republican Party’s positions and actions?
Answer: Yes
10. Do you believe that the mainstream media does not do their due diligence fact-checking before publishing stories on the Trump administration?
Answer: It is specifically because they do that you look in such a sorry state.
11. Do you believe that the media unfairly reported on President Trump’s executive order temporarily restricting people entering our country from nations compromised by radical Islamic terrorism?
Answer: That's a suggestive question unbecoming of any survey. But no, I do not think so.
12. Were you aware that a poll was released revealing that a majority of Americans actually supported President Trump's temporary restriction executive order?
Answer: Yes, it even appeared in the MSM. However, it doesn't make it any more legal nor morraly justified.
13. Do you believe that political correctness has created biased news coverage on both illegal immigration and radical Islamic terrorism?
Answer: I believe that "political correctness" is a term applied when you don't like the criticism.
14. Do you believe that contrary to what the media says, raising taxes does not create jobs?
Answer: Twisted question. Scrap the "contrary to what the media says" if you want this to be a survey. And it's a matter of economics, not belief. In terms of economics, your question proves a blatant lack of understanding.
15. Do you believe that people of faith have been unfairly characterized by the media?
Answer: You mean like the characterisation of non-believers and Muslims by Fox News? Yes, certainly I do.
16. Do you believe that the media wrongly attributes gun violence to Second Amendment rights?
Answer: No
17. Do you believe that the media has been far too quick to spread false stories about our movement?
Answer: The GOP is merely a movement? Trump brought you down quickly.
18. Do you believe that the media uses slurs rather than facts to attack conservative stances on issues like border control, religious liberties, and ObamaCare?
Answer: Affordable Care Act. Talk about slurs...
19. Do you believe that the media purposely tries to divide Republicans against each other in order to help elect Democrats?
Answer: No
20. Do you believe that the media creates false feuds within our Party in order to make us seem divided?
Answer: No
21. Do you believe that the mainstream media has been too eager to jump to conclusions about rumored stories?
Answer: No
22. Do you believe that if Republicans were obstructing Obama like Democrats are doing to President Trump, the mainstream media would attack Republicans?
Answer: Appoint people qualified for their respective positions, and their acceptance will be much easier. Further, you did obstruct Obama.
23. Do you agree with the President’s decision to break with tradition by giving lesser known reporters and bloggers the chance to ask the White House Press Secretary questions?
Answer: If at least these people had a track record of ethical reporting...
24. Do you agree with President Trump’s media strategy to cut through the media’s noise and deliver our message straight to the people?
Answer: When can we expect a Castro-like ten hour live address by the President?
25. Do you believe that our Party should spend more time and resources holding the mainstream media accountable?
Answer: No

God help me if I ever support the Left's version of Trump.

Hopefully one day they do something like that in Seattle. I think it's a worthy program.

I don't know what's more sad or scary. Trump in this silly rally or the commenters to this video. It's like they are all robots that have been programmed to follow their dear leader.

Leif (Vincent Vega) lives in Berlin and he just used a proxy, and entered a Dallas zip code to do the survey, it doesn't matter if you live in the US or not, you can still do it

Hi guys. Why hasn't anyone changed their avatars in support of Sweden? Have we no more compassion and empathy left? #PrayForSweden

Donald Trump is mentally unstable and obviously unfit for office.

He must be removed.

Trump General Discussion VII

Why the fuck is a sitting president holding a rally one month into his term?

Are my taxes paying for this bullshit?

Most likely you are paying for his security while he does these rallies.

I hadn't seen Hue And Cry in a while, I'd forgotten the name of the comic the kids read in it and now the film's ruined!

I suspect most of you have already seen this, but I found it comforting.

President Trump Has Done Almost Nothing - POLITICO Magazine

Also, when are media giants going to chase Trump for defamation???
