Desperate Media Accuses Trump of "Treason" For Joke About Hillary's Deleted Emails

With Trump now leading in the polls, the leftist media has become more desperate than ever to find something, anything, to attack him on.

In their latest hysterical freak out, the media is accusing Trump of committing "treason" for making a joke saying he hopes Russia can "find" Hillary's 30,000 missing emails.

"Russia if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," Trump said jokingly during a press conference yesterday. "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press."

Watch the clip yourself:

Despite this being an obvious joke -- and it being technically impossible for Russia to actually hack her server in response to his joke as it's no doubt been taken offline -- this is how the media responded...

The Independent:


The Washington Post:

Here's more of the hysterical responses from Politico:
"It’s just one more example of the reckless and dangerous comments that Donald Trump makes that compromises American foreign policy objectives," said Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Leon Panetta, a former CIA director, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Trump's comments were "beyond the pale" because he was "in fact asking the Russians to engage in American politics." Later during a panel at the University of Pennsylvania, Panetta ramped up his rebuke, calling Trump’s remarks a “threat to our national security.”

An aide to House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Republican who has endorsed Trump, added, meanwhile, that "Russia is a global menace led by a devious thug" and that it should stay out of the U.S. election.

“The United States should not tolerate Russian meddling in November’s election,” said House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.). “Period.”

Philip Reiner, a former National Security Council official in the Obama administration, called Trump a "scumbag animal."

"Hacking email is a criminal activity. And he's asked a foreign government — a murderous, repressive regime — to attack not just one of our citizens but the Democratic presidential candidate? Of course it's a national security threat," he added.

And William Inboden, who served on the NSC during the George W. Bush administration, said Trump's comments were "tantamount to treason."

"Trump's appeal for a foreign government hostile to the United States to manipulate our electoral process is not an assault on Hillary Clinton, it is an assault on the Constitution," said Inboden, who now teaches at the University of Texas at Austin.

This is how desperate these people are!

Here's how the Clinton camp responded:

Note how they admit Russia accessing her emails would be a "national security issue," despite as Sean Davis highlighted, Clinton saying in the past her emails "were about nothing more than her 'yoga routines' and wedding planning for her daughter."

The media doesn't care in the slightest Hillary Clinton actually jeopardized national security by sharing classified information on her insecure private email server, but they want to try Trump for treason for joking about it!

How can anyone take these morons seriously? This is why only 6 percent of people say "they have a lot of confidence in the media." No one trusts them anymore because they're finally realizing they're a bunch of liars, that's why Trump consistently gets his biggest applause when he attacks them.

During a media conference held in May to lament the growth of the "far-right" in Europe and America, Washington Post reporter Charles Lane said the "establishment media" has "never been weaker and never been more hated."
"One of the things that has happened in the United States and Europe is the total dethroning of the 'establishment media.' The authority of established media across the United States, and I believe Europe as well, has been destroyed. To some extent by our own sins, to some extent by the fact that people have alternatives now, they communicate unmediated, through the Internet. And one of the common elements I have noticed is the hostility directed at the media, at physical representatives of the media."

"...I think it’s the leveling of access to mass communication. Twenty years ago you had to own a $250 million printing press to have access to the whole world; today, you need a $400 phone and you can communicate directly to the entire world. This has been a tremendous source of energy to populist movements. We, the mainstream media, are weaker than we’ve ever been before, yet we are vilified for controlling the discourse. We’ve never been weaker and never been more hated."
Despite an all out assault on Donald Trump, he's now winning in the media's democrat skewed polls.

No one has ever seen anything like this. We're witnessing a total revolution and the media's only response is to double down on their made up lies.
