Amal Clooney Criticizes Donald Trump's Treatment of the Media

Amal Clooney is speaking out about freedom of the press.

The 41-year-old international human rights lawyer took the stage at the Global Conference for Media Freedom on Wednesday (July 10) and Thursday (July 12) in London, England.

During the event, Amal, who serves as the UK’s Special Envoy on Media Freedom, had critical words for president Donald Trump‘s treatment of the press.

While Amal did not reference Donald by name, she alluded to the current leader of the United States.

“Today, the country of James Madison has a leader who vilifies the media, making honest journalists all over the world more vulnerable to abuse,” Amal said.

She continued, “With authoritarianism, isolationism and nationalism gaining ground, the relevance of international institutions and respect for intentional norms are seriously in question.”

She also spoke of world leader’s response to the death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed after walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

    She needs to shut up. NYT, WP and similar tabloid scum are not honest journalists. They are criminals. They are complicit in war crimes their government committed in Iraq that they enabled by perpetrating WMDs hoax story.

    And of course, by telling her to shut up is a classy move.

    The way the media treats our president is a disgrace whether you like him or not!!! No other president has been raked over the coals like this. Yes, sometimes he deserves it because he can stoop pretty low but still, if anyone in the media ever spoke about Obama like that, they’d be branded a racist and lose their jobs for life!!!
