Trump on the media:

“The Des Moines Register is a terrible paper. No, it really is. A very liberal paper by the way. I believe I am winning in Iowa. By the way, there are other polls that say I am winning in Iowa by the way. This was two small polls. And all over the country I am winning by massive numbers. But, I will say I think I am winning in Iowa> I’m doing really well with Evangelicals, the Tea Party, everyone else… The media has a lower approval rating than Congress. And you’re right, they’re scum. They’re horrible people.”

Trump went on to say Hillary traveled a lot and must have wanted to get away.
The Boston Herald reported:

Donald Trump came out swinging with the media, Jeb Bush, and John Kerry among the real estate mogul’s targets during an early morning rally inside a packed ballroom in Atkinson, NH.

“One thing you will learn about the media, they’re the worst,” Trump told the crowd, as he blasted a recent Des Moines Register poll which has him trailing Ben Carson in Iowa. “I’m winning every single state, I’m winning big nationally … this one crummy poll, that’s all you hear about.”

The 35-minute speech also featured attacks on Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton and fellow GOP candidates like Bush and Carson.

“Under Hillary Clinton, the entire world blew up,” Trump said. “I give her credit for one thing, she traveled a lot…I guess she wanted to get away. … If she didn’t travel at all and got good results, I’d love her.”
