Donald Trump's Media Assault: Reporters Are 'Scum'

Donald Trump continued Republican attacks on the media at large.

After the CNBC debate, Donald Trump was happy with his performance and said it was a tough debate, but he did good. However, most of the other candidates were making waves by attacking the debate moderators and actually made the case that CNBC has a liberal agenda.

Well today on the stump, Trump joined in the chorus of the anti-media opera and called some reporters "scum." I wish I had more of the clip to see if he called out Megyn Kelly and Fox News also.

Trump:...scum back there. That's what hey are. You have no idea how bad they are. You have no idea. You have no idea how dishonest some of the reporters are. That work for...no, no. That work for CNN. That work for frankly - NBC.
We're going to have a border. We'll build a wall. Mexico is going to pay for the wall. We're not paying. Just like CNBC gave up that hour, a lot of money. Mexico is going to pay

I doubt Mexico will cower in awe of Trump's magnificence like CNBC did, but these media attacks are getting very silly and way out of hand. And Trump took it to the gutter by calling them scum.

I'm worried that some reporters may be attacked soon.
