[Ed. – Juan Williams, who was once a fair-minded liberal commentator, has devolved into a hyper-partisan hack in the Trump era.]
Now I know firsthand how fast political coverage of President Trump leads to bullying and threats.
When Trump tweeted out last week that my political analysis of him was “nasty,” “pathetic” and “wrong,” it led to an instant stream of vile comments via email and on my social media feeds.
And, yes, you’re right. I’m a big boy. I can ignore his bullying, even his followers’ death threats.
But this goes beyond Trump skewering me.
He is engaged in a coordinated attack on every journalist’s ability to hold him accountable, call out his lies and critique his failed policies.
Trump targeted me last week after watching a “Fox News Sunday” discussion of the damage being done by what I called his “brutish” strategy for forcing China to agree to a new trade deal.
