Gonna tweet some of the takes prominent journalists had after Peter Thiel spoke at the 2016 GOP convention, Trump said he would "do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens," and the party approved a virulently anti-LGBTQ platform.
John Roberts: Trump “has become a champion for the cause” of LGBTQ rights.
STUDY: Trump’s phony caravan “crisis” consumed Wash. Post, NY Times
The papers have produced 115 news stories referencing the caravan, putting 25 on A1
President Trump has taken Fox News’ advice and successfully turned the network’s fearmongering about an “invasion” by a caravan of migrants. The caravan is shrinking and weeks away, but Trump has been able to use his bully pulpit to move it to the top of the media agenda.
The individual articles are in many cases laudable -- compelling stories of the migrants themselves, debunk the president’s lies and conspiracy theories, and point to the facts that undermine his demagoguery.
