**MSNBC’s Katie Phang continues her campaign against media coverage of Republican presidential candidates, now enlisting Mary Trump, the former president’s niece, to fight her war. Is it time for Phang to receive a promotion to Supreme Commander of the War Against Media Coverage of Republicans?**
Last week, we witnessed MSNBC’s Katie Phang criticizing media outlets who provide platforms for GOP primary candidates to share their ideas with the American public. Recently, Phang invited Mary Trump, Donald Trump’s niece, as a guest on her show to discuss the 2024 election cycle and how the mainstream media should handle it.
As Phang questioned whether the country could handle the upcoming election, Mary Trump suggested that Democrats need to “fight dirty” like the Republicans. Additionally, both women expressed shock that mainstream media is still giving airtime to Republican candidates they consider liars. Mary Trump even went as far as saying that Donald Trump should not be allowed to run for president again, calling our system “deeply broken.”
Ironically, later in the show, Phang teased a segment about a parent fighting against book bans in a Florida county, seemingly missing the hypocrisy in her own call for limiting media coverage of Republicans and banning Donald Trump from running for office.
**It’s clear that Phang and her like-minded associates have no qualms about using their platforms to limit the voice of the opposition while claiming to champion free speech. With Mary Trump by her side, Phang’s battle against media coverage of Republicans rages on, with no sign of slowing down.**
