Trump’s campaign website published a so-called “Media Accountability Study” after midnight on Tuesday in an effort to understand what those favourable to the president think about the press.
The bizarre quiz asks questions such as: “Do you trust the mainstream media to tell the truth about the Republican Party’s positions?”
Another question asks: “Do you believe that political correctness has created biased news coverage on both illegal immigration and radical Islamic terrorism?”
The questions were sent to supporters after Trump’s bizarre press conference on Thursday in which the newly-elected leader of the free world harangued and berated the media.
Perhaps most worryingly, the quiz asks: “Do you believe that the media wrongly attributes gun violence to Second Amendment rights?”
But the ‘study’ was quickly seized upon by his opponents, who are encouraging anyone and everyone to take part in the survey to skew the results.
But then someone pointed out a terrifying prospect.
Any findings favourable to the president’s position will no doubt be used by his administration.
During Thursday’s press conference, Trump said he hoped to “get along a little bit better” with the press going forward - “if that’s possible.”
“Maybe it’s not, and that’s OK, too,” he added.
