Trump campaign: We don't care what you think.
*At a recent Trump rally, a Huffington Post reporter noted, "that a Secret Service agent stepped up to help when a Trump campaign staffer tried to interfere with his reporting."
*Asked about allegations from a 1993 book that Trump had sexually assaulted his then-wife Ivana Trump (she later recanted the claim), Donald Trump's attorney threatened a Daily Beast reporter: "So I'm warning you, tread very f*cking lightly, because what I'm going to do to you is going to be f*cking disgusting. You understand me?"
*At a South Carolina rally, Trump mocked and mimicked a New York Times reporter who suffers from a chronic condition called arthrogryposis, which limits the movement of his arms.
*His campaign barred a BuzzFeed reporter from attending an event in Newton, Iowa, denied Des Moines Register and Huffington Post reporters press credentials to campaign events, and barred reporters from Fusion from covering a Trump event in Doral, Florida.
*Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was physically removed from a Trump press conference.
*A security guard at an Iowa rally threatened to eject any reporter who interviewed Trump supporters: "You talk to people and you leave."
*At a South Carolina event, Trump derided NBC's Katy Tur as "Little Katy, third-rate journalist." Trump fans then rained boos down on Tur, according to the Daily Beast.
One more, from the Washington Post:
"After CNN reporter Noah Gray left 'the pen' to document a group of protesters who unveiled a sign reading 'Migrant lives matter,' Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski turned to campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks and said: 'Hey: Tell Noah, get back in the pen or he's f***** blacklisted,' according to a recording of the incident."
This type of behavior is completely unprecedented. If a leading Democrat were guilty of any of the above transgressions, there would be a roiling Beltway media revolt that would denounce the Democratic campaign continuously. Uninterrupted.
But the Trump campaign has committed all of the above offenses. So why is it mostly crickets from the same press corps?
