The Washington Free Beacon‘s Elizabeth Harrington appeared on Fox News Tuesday and said it was a smart call for Donald Trump to attack the media for questioning him about donations to veterans groups because most Americans say they do not like the media.

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.”
