Two Breitbart editors agree that President Donald Trump is “emasculating himself” by giving access to national publications like The New York Times instead of conservative alternative media sites like Breitbart, which would offer him more positive coverage.
Breitbart News Editor-at-Large John Nolte joined host and Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow on this morning’s episode of “Breitbart News Daily” on SiriusXM Patriot. In the first part of the discussion, Nolte and Marlow expressed their contempt for the limited access that Trump has given alternative conservative sites like their own.
“Trump has the opportunity to give the presidential imprimatur to alternative media, to credible alternative media,” Nolte said. “He has the ability to do that and he won’t do it. And he should have in the front row of the press corps during those briefings, which thankfully aren’t going on anymore, he should alternative media in the front row.”
Nolte added, “What he does, and I hate to say it, he’s emasculating himself. He looks ridiculous.”
“Yeah, it is a huge flaw,” Marlow said. “I know a lot of people in the audience don’t like when I say anything negative about the president, but I do think that what I say, when I spend 85 percent of the time saying great stuff about him, I think it makes it more credible. But this is his Achilles heel here.”
“I think that he had an opportunity to really also insulate himself by empowering folks who are fair to him. I would like to think at Breitbart we’re fair— and being fair to him means that most of the stuff he’s doing is great, and we do point that out. But he does have this establishment media obsession.”
Marlow said he was surprised to learn in Cliff Sims’ new book, “Team of Vipers,” that Trump has autographed copies of The New York Times when he receives favorable press coverage from the paper the right loves to hate, and give those signed copies away to people.
“The New York Times, which is trying to destroy his presidency, it means that much to him,” Marlow said.
“It’s just sad,” Nolte said. “It’s very sad to watch. Otherwise, he’s always a very strong, masculine guy who doesn’t take any crap—and then you just see him embarrass himself to earn the praise of people who despise him.”
