Gary Click, a pastor and member of the Ohio GOP’s State Central Committee, led an invocation prayer ahead of Trump’s Ohio rally, calling on the attendees to pray to protect Trump from “jungle journalism”.
Click announced to the crowd:
“Protect our President and his family with a shield of faith, Lord.”
“That shield of faith against the fiery darts of the wicked one, Lord, against that jungle journalism that extorts the truth and distorts honesty and integrity every single day, gets in his face with lies and mistruths and innuendos.”
This simple event shows how Trump’s incessant war with the press is now spreading. Trump and his team continue to attack the free press on a near-daily basis. The administration claims fake news and Trump’s public is more than happy to go with it.
