During President-elect Donald Trump’s press conference today, Trump took aim at “fake news” regarding the release of an unverified dossier by Buzzfeed, calling them a “failing piece of garbage.”
Following that, he ended up getting into an argument with a CNN reporter, who he also called out during the presser over their report on a two-page synopsis they claim was presented to Trump.
With Trump looking to call on other reporters, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?”
“Not you,” Trump said. “Your organization is terrible!”
Acosta pressed on, “You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?” Trump countered by telling him “don’t be rude.”
“I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump responded. “I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!”
READER COMMENTS ON THIS ARTICLE POSTED ON THE INTERNET:
America is a country without an honest media. A country without an honest judiciary. Without an honest government. Without an honest legislature. Without honest schools and universities.
A country whose morals are confused by propaganda. A country whose elites believe that they are entitled to all the income and wealth and that normal American people are the “deplorables,” to use Hillary’s term for ordinary Americans.
So, it’s the light of day and with a little more info, it’s fairly obvious how this all went down.
There are some negative "reports and rumors" about Trump that have been floating around since at least last summer. In-spite of the best efforts of folks like David Korn at Mother Jones and others, the rumors couldn't be corroborated or confirmed. So, the rumors are largely ignored due to the sheer shady nature of the information and its provenance.
During this time Dems like Harry Reid and others reference "rumors" about Trump and pressure FBI and other agencies to release docs. They don't.
Flash forward to yesterday. Dem Ron Wyden specifically asks FBI Director James Comey about possible reports/investigations into relationships between Trump and Russia. The Director says "no comment".
Then, a few hours later, finally DNC PR outlet, CNN, reports via a "special report" on a FBI investigation into explosive allegations between Russia/Trump and efforts by Russia to influence Trump via negative information. That is, the suspect and totally unsubstantiated "report" that’s been floating around for months and yet not one news organization would touch it.
Then, following CNN's lead, fellow DNC friendly outlet, Buzzfeed, publishes, in full, the highly suspect and fully unsubstantiated "report".
Then, like lemmings off a cliff, almost all other news outlets have to cover the story as reported by CNN and Buzzfeed, causing the huge stir we see today.
BTW...most ignore that this may in fact be the greatest troll job ever perpetrated, and the info is indeed false.
All this happens right in time for Trump’s first press conference scheduled for 11am today.
Yep, nothing fishy to this latest bit of curious news.
As I have said before, Dems will do anything to undermine Trump regardless of the impact it will have on the country. Party first if you're a Dem.
