Carl Icahn: Bad Media Coverage May Have Helped Trump, People Saw It and Called ‘Bullsh*t’

icahnBillionaire businessman Carl Icahn, who is considering taking a role in Donald Trump‘s administration, told Fox’s Neil Cavuto today that he thinks the negative media coverage of Trump may have helped him.

Neil Cavuto today asked Icahn about Trump’s meeting with The New York Times and general relationship with the press.

Icahn said the media has been “very unfair” to Trump in some cases, because of how editorializing was no longer contained to the editorial pages.

“I never saw it as bad as it was here,” Icahn said. “In fact, it might have helped Donald. It might have been a backlash.”

He said that people read what was being reported and called “bullshit.”
