Trump: the press is the enemy of the people and i wish i could put them in jail
Ocasio-Cortez: one (1) event will be closed to the press so I can speak to constituents from vulnerable communities about sensitive issues that impact them
Mainstream reporters: these are the same

The other day, AOC held a public event for her future constituents, focusing on issues of domestic violence, immigrants, etc. The forum was closed to the press, and our intrepid media HAD A FUCKING SHIT FIT:
Our community is 50% immigrant. Folks are victims of DV, trafficking, + have personal medical issues.
This town hall was designed for residents to feel safe discussing sensitive issues in a threatening political time.
We indicated previously that it would be closed to press.

They are attacking her because she is a woman, because she is young, because she is of the left, and they want to bitch slap her and let her know who is boss.

There is a reason she might want to meet with these people without the media there:
Not to mention ICE is now carjacking people as they drive their pregnant wives to the fucking hospital to give birth:
That was on Wednesday. I’m surprised these idiots in the media are not asking her about Hillary’s emails. I fucking hate these people.
