Texas rally crowd goes wild when Trump points out the obvious hypocrisy of the mainstream media
At his rally in Houston on Monday night, President Donald Trump joked about how to jump-start a thorough investigation of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Dogged by multiple scandals, such as the use of a private email server for government business, Clinton still has dodged consequential investigation by either the government or the mainstream media.

“But if you want the fake news to finally investigate Hillary Clinton, we’ll just have”— and he was cut off by the wild crowd.
“Man!” Trump exclaimed.
