Republican National Committee (RNC) co-chair Lara Trump on Tuesday attacked corporate media outlets for their coverage of former President Donald Trump’s trial that started on Monday.

Trump faces 34 felony counts regarding a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels as part of an agreement to keep her silent about an alleged affair during the former president’s successful 2016 run for the White House. Fox News played a montage of CNN and MSNBC anchors ridiculing Trump’s appearance at the trial for the former president’s daughter-in-law on “Fox and Friends,” who then criticized the outlets for being out of touch.

“These people are so deranged and they’re completely disconnected, obviously, from the people of this country. They only stand to exist in their own echo chambers,” the RNC co-chair told host Lawrence Jones. “That’s the only reason they are talking and their obsession with Donald Trump is actually preventing them from understanding that it’s not Donald Trump that’s truly on trial here.”

“It is our very democracy,” she said. “Because, yes, it is Donald Trump today that you will see sitting in the courtroom for this completely meritless clown show of a show trial but the implications of this are far deeper for this country because if in America we are able to just manipulate the law when convenient, if we allow violent criminals to go free and prosecute the innocent, if they are willing to thwart the will of the American people, and try to remove our choice for president of the United States, then the fabric of this country is irreparably damaged.”

MSNBC ran coverage of the trial titled “Trump on Trial” for six hours straight, while Fox News covered the trial featuring legal commentary, but also reported on Monday’s protests that blocked bridges in New York and California.

“I want to tell everybody something out there,” Trump added. “It is not working. The people of America spoke up yesterday in support of Donald Trump to the tune of $1.5 million raised for his campaign. Lawrence, the average donation was $28. So even here in the abysmal Biden economy, people are coming out and they are financially supporting this president … The people of this country are with him and those folks you just heard from there do not represent even a single person out there across this country.”
