Cavuto: Media Fears 'Silly' Tweet, But Ignores Real Violence From Left
Some argue that President Trump's viral WWE tweet could incite attacks on members of the media.
On ABC News yesterday, commentator Ana Navarro said that the president "is going to get somebody killed in the media." CNN called it a "sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters."
In his Common Sense segment, Neil Cavuto responded by calling attention to the many extreme actions by anti-Trump activists, reporters and celebrities on the left.
He listed many examples, including the Kathy Griffin bloody head photo, Johnny Depp's assassination comment and college campus riots over conservative speakers.
"Not one of them is remotely OK. There is a big difference between speaking your mind and quite another proving you don't have one," said Cavuto.
At the same time, he said top Democrats are calling for resistance and impeachment, while opposing anything Trump proposes.
Amid the overheated rhetoric, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot last month by a man upset at Republicans' policies.
"So forget who's tweeting silly stuff. Focus on who's doing far more serious stuff," said Cavuto, adding that he's still "not a fan" of Trump tweeting things that are not central to his agenda.
