On Tuesday, Meghan McCain slammed the mainstream media by highlighting the fact that the majority of Americans believe that they report fake news and hate normal Americans.

“I will say, this is a big gift to Trump supporters, 77% of Americans — 77 — believe that the national television and newspaper media outlets report fake news, 89% of Republicans believe that,” McCain said.
“There’s already this implication when you hear people like Jim Acosta saying that Trump supporters, their brains don’t, whatever the quote is, their ‘elevators don’t go to the top floor,'” McCain continued. “There’s an idea that the media, especially people in D.C., hate the Trump administration, hate Republicans, hate the people in the middle of the country.-”
