Texas businessman Kyle Courtney made a post about ABC News that is getting some attention… because it’s on a billboard.
Courtney’s message reads: “ABC News: I grew up with you. We are through. The Russians didn’t elect Donald Trump. I did.”
Courtney is fed up with the allegations that President Trump worked with with Russia to change the outcome of the election that is being told by ABC and other news outlets. While the Russian investigation is still underway, Courtney says the result won’t change his mind, as this isn’t their only offense.
“They used to be news. They used to be journalists,” Courtney said on an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. “Unfortunately, about 8 to 10 years ago, that started to change… It started to look like propaganda.”
He explained that he singled out ABC because “they were my friends, they were the people I believed in,” and that “it started when they started telling us to hate George Bush, and I didn’t hate George Bush.”
The Russia-Trump coverage, he added, “was too much for me.”
Courtney wanted his message to be seen, so he bought a city about 40 miles northwest of San Antonio, Texas.
“I think they have lost touch with America and forgotten the working man,” Courtney said. “I’m not in the brainwashing business, but the liberal media is. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was funded by the Clinton Foundation in close coordination with the media, and now we’re seeing them try to fix what they couldn’t fix during the election. They are doing everything they can, night after night, to create narratives and sway people’s direction to impeach Donald Trump. Our democracy is at stake when a major political party and the media are in bed together.”
He has received a lot of positive feedback from the billboard, receiving multiple requests for interviews and such an overwhelming response on Facebook that he has turned it over to his daughter, he said in the Fox interview.
“I’m considering starting a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to buy up vacant billboards for various Trump supporters who otherwise couldn’t afford it to make their voices known,” he said in an email to The Huffington Post.
