Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law and 2020 adviser, attacked the media for correctly quoting her callous remarks about unpaid federal workers media going through only “a little bit of pain” for the sake of the country’s future.
She played the victim card during an interview with Fox News’ Harris Faulkner:
I’m incredibly empathetic toward anyone right now who is struggling without a paycheck, without several paychecks, who have bills to pay,
For the mainstream media to take one little blurb out of what I said, misconstrue it and misrepresent what I had to say, it’s completely unacceptable. It’s why the president calls the media “fake news” these days. It’s the same thing.
