Donny got Twitter access back. Oh dear. Keep it up, Donny!

It is not "freedom of the press" when newspapers and others are allowed to say and write whatever they want even if it is completely false!

I am not only fighting Crooked Hillary, I am fighting the dishonest and corrupt media and her government protection process. People get it!
57m

Crooked Hillary Clinton is being protected by the media. She is not a talented person or politician. The dishonest media refuses to expose!

My rallies are not covered properly by the media. They never discuss the real message and never show crowd size or enthusiasm.
5h

If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn't put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%
5h


The failing @nytimes, which never spoke to me, keeps saying that I am saying to advisers that I will change. False, I am who I am-never said
5h

The failing @nytimes talks about anonymous sources and meetings that never happened. Their reporting is fiction. The media protects Hillary!

Manafort must be so pleased with these fruits of Friday's labor! I'm sure the first thing on the party's checklist for Donnie after the come-to-Jesus confab was to keep raking the media over the coals! Works every time!

That the media was not properly reporting on his rallies he only referred to how the crowds were much larger to see him and that the crowds were much more enthusiastic about him rather than defend his supporters by saying they are not racist, violent etc. Rather, he just made arguments that inflated his ego.

He is the living embodiment of Charles Foster Kane...little Donnie wishes he was a REAL boy...a REAL Billionaire and he lashes out wildly at everyone and everything that does not immediately acquiesce to his desires.

His picking fights with the Washington Post and New York Times may play to the 30% of the population that make up his zealous followers, but it will do nothing to broaden his appeal. He seems utterly incapable of doing anything that does not stroke the ego of him and his idiot followers.

The Talking Yam is on his way to history alright....the dust bin of...

to a padded room. I don't think he understands "freedom of the press", and that they are only printing what he is saying. If it's "completely false", then he might want to stop lying!

... so that when they call the election for Hillary, his supporters won't believe it and (presumably) may act out.
