Trump launches blistering attack on media, accusers after sexual assault claims

Donald Trump launched a blistering counterattack Thursday in response to multiple allegations of sexual assault, calling them “entirely fabricated,” accusing the media outlets that reported them of backing Hillary Clinton and slamming the four accusers as “horrible, horrible liars.”

In a nearly hour-long speech, with language fiery even by Trump standards, the Republican spent over half of it blasting the media, in particular the New York Times, for allegedly pushing an agenda to elect Clinton.

“Let’s be clear on one thing, the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism – they are a political special interest no different from a lobbyist,” Trump said in the speech in West Palm Beach, Fla. “Their agenda is to elect crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy.”
