This Lame Media Outlet MANGLED Trump's 'I Don't Care About You' Joke -- As He Predicted!

June 10th, 2024 11:15 AM

Donald Trump loves to make jokes during his rallies, especially about the press. At Sunday morning’s hot and sunny rally in Las Vegas, Trump joked about losing voters to heatstroke, and the press reaction:

"By the way, isn't the breeze nice. Do you feel the breeze? I don't want anybody going on me. We need every voter. I don't care about you. I just want your vote. I don't care." His supporters laughed as he then said, "See now, the press will take that, and they'll say, 'He said a horrible thing.'"

Like clockwork, the clickbait hacks at Newsweek (and then the aggregators at posted the headline:

Donald Trump Jokes to Las Vegas Rally Attendees: 'I Don't Care About You'

This website is a desiccated shell of its former weekly-magazine self. This headline was actually an improvement from the first one! As the article now admits, they left "jokes" out in the original: 

Reporter Natalie Venegas began: “Amid high temperatures at Donald Trump's campaign rally in Las Vegas on Sunday, the former president made a quip about the heat affecting his attendees by stating that he needed their votes, adding, "I don't care about you."

They ran a video tweet from Acyn Torabi from the Trump-trashing Meidas Touch squad:

Then they ran more Trump-trashing Twitter commentary:

In response to Trump's comments, some took to X, formerly Twitter, to criticize him on Sunday.

Democrat and X user Harry Sisson wrote ,"WOW! Trump just went MASK OFF and said 'We need every voter. I don't care about you. I just want your vote. I don't care.' You hear that, America? Trump doesn't care about you at all. He just wants you to vote for him. Disgraceful."

Democratic Pennsylvania state Representative Malcolm Kenyatta simply wrote: "He's finally telling the truth."

Reiterating Kenyatta's remarks, progressive political commentator Luke Beasley posted to X, "He finally said the truth."

At least Newsweek mentioned at the end that the Trump campaign took precautions for attendees, with bottled water and misting fans and tents, including at least one with air conditioning. But MSN and Newsweek got the trashy headline they wanted!
