El Presidente Donaldo Trumpo called for equal time for Republicans and himself to combat the propaganda out of late night talk show hosts.
Late Night host are dealing with the Democrats for their very "unfunny" & repetitive material, always anti-Trump! Should we get Equal Time?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2017
More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2017
I doubt this is actually true. I haven’t heard one person ask for this lately.
But it’s ironic because Democrats have been calling for equal time for a while because they actually think the media is biased AGAINST them!! This is a terrible idea – ANY government control of political speech is, but Trump doesn’t care about these principles, he just cares about being treated according to his own version of fairness.
He’s demanded this once before, with Saturday Night Live:
I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2016
I find this pretty hilarious – he only demands equal time when it’s an entertainer being biased against him, not really the news…
