Fox Reporter Openly Mocks Trump for His Global Media Conspiracy Theories

Donald Trump continues to perpetuate the debunked conspiracy theory that the media has rigged the election against him. 

“Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors,” Trump said at a campaign rally in West Palm Beach last Thursday.

“The most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media, the press,” Trump continued. 

The irony could not be greater for the reality star as presidential nominee despite having no prior experience in government. In fact, Trump received "nearly $3 billion in ‘free’ advertising" throughout the primaries according to MarketWatch, an advantage no candidate before has ever enjoyed. 

"I want the truth to come out," Trump said on Monday, regarding the allegations of sexual assault by women who have come forward since the release of the 2005 Hollywood Access tape. 

"But you you keep saying that the media is collectively working against you, do you really think we're part of a global conspiracy? Really? Honestly, a global conspiracy?" the Fox News reporter asked Trump, moments after the GOP nominee called him "gullible." 

Trump immediately sidestepped the issue. 

"Fox hasn't been great," Trump shot back. "But the others have been really bad, yeah I would say that Fox certainly hasn't been great, but you've been better than some of the others, I would say that's true."
