Host Gretchen Carlson asked Harrington if it was smart for Trump to go after the media during a press conference on Tuesday.
“Yeah, I think so. I think it’s a smart move to attack the media, because when Donald Trump says he has a low opinion of the mainstream media, he’s with the majority of Americans who feel that way. The media’s favorability rating is at historic lows,” Harrington said.
“So, it’s really a win-win for him because he gets to go out there, attack journalists, attack the media, which many Americans feel the same way, that they don’t have a lot of trust in them. And then at the same time, he says, ‘Look, I raised $5.6 million for vets. I didn’t have to do it’ and that makes him look good as well.”
