WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made this statement on the conduct of the White House press corps after today’s presidential news conference at the White House.
“It’s apparent to me the White House press corps lives in a bubble and the way they are conducting themselves today will do nothing to improve their standing with the American people.
“Certain members of the press cannot stand the fact that President Trump and Republicans defied expectations in the midterm elections – actually growing our Senate majority.
“The mainstream press are not – in my opinion – ‘Enemies of the People’ but rather ‘Allies of the Democratic Party’ playing an activist role in support of their agenda.”
