During an exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta Trump said he was changing his description of their network from “fake news” to “very fake news.”
See a transcript of the exchange from Newsbusters below:
ACOSTA: Just because the attack of fake news and attacking our network, I just want to ask you, sir —
TRUMP: I’m changing it from fake news though.
ACOSTA: Doesn’t that undermine —
TRUMP: Very fake news.
ACOSTA: — but aren’t you —
TRUMP: Go ahead.
ACOSTA: Real news, Mr. President. Real news.
Trump spent a significant portion of the news conference slamming the media, at one point declaring, “The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about it, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people.”
The media reaction to this press conference was unbelievable from CNN’s Jake Tapper to NBC’s Chuck Todd the media could not handle being called out.
Those of us who didn’t worship at the feet of Obama aren’t in the press. The press spent 8 years fawning all over him. Obama hated Fox news because they were the only ones who called him out. So he froze them out.
Get over it, Trump is President, we support him and he supports the American people.
