MEDIA COMES UNGLUED AFTER TRUMP PRESSER: Hotel Backdrop Comes Crashing Down (VIDEO)
The news media went to war with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump following his epic press event at the new Trump hotel in Washington, D.C. Friday morning where he presented endorsements by Medal of Honor recipients and other veterans.
Trump had said beforehand the event would also feature a statement on the so-called birther controversy about President Barack Obama. Trump waited until the end of the event to announce his belief that Obama was born in the United States.
Trump then ended the event without taking questions from the press even though the event had been billed as a press conference. Enraged reporters stood on chairs screaming questions at Trump for five minutes but were ignored.
Then this happened…
The Trump Hotel backdrop came crashing down.
