Trump at Mt RushmoreAfter four years of distorting, obscuring and burying the truth, the national media seems to have done away with it all together.

No sooner had Donald Trump finished his patriotic speech at the foot of Mount Rushmore on July 4, then the mainstream media started twisting and bashing the address as “divisive” and “dark,” and an appeal to racism.

Responding to the media, Gary Bauer of American Values told American Family Radio the latest criticism of President Trump wasn't the typical spin because the media ignored reality and made up its own story.

“The media,” Bauer said, “lied through their teeth about it.”

Bauer pointed out that a U.S. senator, Tammy Duckworth, claimed President Trump defended Confederate generals in his Independence Day speech.

“He didn't even mention Confederates or Confederate generals,” Bauer pointed out. “Not once in the speech did he even refer to them.”

Wall Street Journal columnist Holman Jenkins wrote that the press "crossed the Rubicon" in its reaction to the patriotic speech.

“The media and the social media big giants put that lie out there,” Bauer observed. “And I'm worried that a majority of Americans think he went to Mount Rushmore and gave a speech defending the Confederacy. It's just insane.”
