MRC’s Gainor on FBN: Don’t Expect Truce Between Trump and Media

March 2nd, 2017 9:20 AM

MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor said President Trump’s speech to a joint session of Congress was like Tom Brady’s Super Bowl comeback, but predicted the media will keep “going after him.”  

“When you get Glenn Thrush, Richard Engel, and Van Jones all complimenting you on your speech, you’ve pretty much done well” Gainor said on March 1, during an appearance on Fox Business Network’s Intelligence Report with Trish Regan.

“I wouldn’t say a grand slam, it reminded me of Brady coming back in the Super Bowl where you’ve got the veteran just proving everybody wrong,” Gainor said of Trump’s Feb. 28 speech.

Anchor Trish Regan asked if this speech may spark a truce between the media and Trump.

“No. I don’t think so. The media is already going after him. They are trying to do what they’ve done before. Chip away at him,” Gainor replied.

Though “it was interesting last night how many were supportive,” Gainor said that this is “the same media that complained about his eating steak, Kellyanne Conway sitting on a couch, and the fact that Donald Trump doesn’t have a dog.”
