Campos-Duffy: Media's Strategy With Trump Is Attack, Ridicule, Destroy
It doesn't seem like President Trump's feud with the media is going to end anytime soon.
On Sunday, the president tweeted a video of himself wrestling and punching a man with the CNN logo superimposed over his head.

The video, which is an edited clip from Trump’s 2007 appearance at WWE's WrestleMania 23, has been criticized by some for allegedly inciting violence against the media.
On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Rachel Campos-Duffy said the media is intent on attacking Trump, and he's simply fighting fire with fire.
"What the media has done is taken a page out of Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals,'" Campos-Duffy said. "Their tactic with Donald Trump is to attack, to ridicule him and to destroy him."
She said that Trump, however, is a fighter, and he's standing up for all conservatives who are tired of being bullied for expressing their beliefs.
She added that the massive backlash over Trump's comment about MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski's "face-lift" shows just how hypocritical the media is.
"When they say, 'Be presidential, Donald Trump,' what they mean is, 'Take our abuse, the way nice Republicans have in the past,'" Campos-Duffy said. "And I think Republicans are tired of it."
"Donald Trump is teaching people that these guys aren't as powerful as they think," she added. "He's punching back, he's using the same tactics they use against him and other Republicans. And the media can't stand it."
