WaPo: Yes, Trump Was 'Unfairly Maligned' For Baby Remark

Ebert said, "Honestly, the first thing that I want to point out is that it doesn't matter how blunt he is, he's genuine".

"I love babies. I hear that baby cry, I like it", he said.

Readers will know that the other day, in what you might call an "exercise in writing towards an audience", I encouraged Donald Trump to recognize that the media, the Establishment, and various other Powers That Be are aligned against him, and will do everything in their power to ensure he loses, so that he should strategically quit and name his replacement instead. "I love babies", the Republican presidential nominee proclaimed here, days after he complained about a baby crying during a campaign rally. I love babies. I love my children, I love babies. I don't throw babies out.

"Trump's tone is eternally hard to read", Dale admitted.


"Then after about two minutes, I said, 'You know what, I'm going to counteract my order".

Everyone's having fun, but they say Trump throws baby [out].

But reports like these further undermine trust in the media - and move us farther along the path of voters on both sides getting their news from one-sided sources. "That's OK", he told the crowd in Des Moines, Iowa. Believe me. I love babies. He said he did not seek to interview the mother himself, as he did not realize until later how much attention had been paid to this incident.

The Post confirmed Dale's retelling with an account from the infant's mother, Devan Ebert.


"The media did in fact blow this entire situation out of proportion", she wrote in an email. It was only because I had to grab my child's belongings and then make my way out of the aisle I was seated in that I wasn't out of there sooner. She said "I excused myself because it was the considerate thing to do". "His comic relief was a breath of fresh air".

Trump has been unfairly maligned here.
