Loudoun County Chair: “The Media is Selling Us a Narrative” on Trump

Will Estrada, the chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee, responded to the media reports claiming Donald Trump “lashed out” at a mother with a baby at a rally Monday night.

“My conclusion is that the media is selling us a narrative,” he said in a statement on social media. “Be very skeptical of what the media is telling you, because I saw it with my own eyes and it was something very different.”

The statement comes after the media, including but not limited to leftwing outlets like Mother Jones, said he lashed out at the mother for the baby in the audience interrupting him. “Donald Trump doesn’t humor any interruptions during his speeches—even if those outbursts are coming from an infant,” Patrick Caldwell wrote. The mainstream media took the story and ran with it, though witnesses in the audience backed up Mr. Estrada’s version of events that night, which included a veteran attempting to give Mr. Trump his purple heart.

Contrary to news stories, it was a very funny thing, Trump was very supportive of the mom calling her and her baby “beautiful” and “wonderful”, and then when the baby kept crying he turned it into a joke. Everyone was laughing and it was actually very endearing and funny. Not at all anti mom or anti baby like the media has portrayed it to be.

Which brings me to the final point: I was there and saw and heard the entire event with the mom and baby. There was nothing to it. But then after I’m reading all the news coverage saying “Trump hates moms and babies!!!” I started to doubt myself. Did I really miss a huge story right in front of me? I started asking others who were there, including a husband and wife with young kids. And everyone in the room said the same thing: there was no story here. Trump was being funny and personable and going out of his way to make sure the mom wasn’t embarrased by making it a funny situation [sic].

Chairman Estrada also told an account of strategizing on how the Republican nominee can win Loudoun County, which was once a Republican stronghold that is trending Democratic. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump told the veteran he could not take the purple heart. The whole statement is below.

  • I am embarrassed and infuriated at the so called main stream media, or as you call them the press. The coverage has been so one sided as to alleviate any talk of objectivity. The press has literally lost all credibility. They, as are the politicians with a 12 percent approval rating, so corrupted as to endorse the most corrupt presidential participant in modern history. They have a common agenda and thus will probably win. It does not change facts, that millions of Americans have been repeatedly lied to and scammed by these Globalists and Free Traders. They have happily destroyed the backbone of this country, the Middle Class. A great man once said that a FREE and HONEST press is essential to our Democracy.
