Bill Simmons Says Trump Is ‘Intentionally Putting American Media Members in Actual Danger’

The Ringer chief Bill Simmons has accused President Trump of deliberately putting journalists and members of the media in danger in order to “deflect attention” from his own scandals.

“Our @Potus is intentionally putting American media members in actual Danger to deflect attention from his own wrongdoings,” Simmons tweeted on Thursday, with a tag at the official presidential Twitter handle.

“He has power and sway, he knows it, and he’s using that influence recklessly to threaten the free press. This is a real thing that’s happening in 2018.”
