Trump unloads on ‘Fake News Media’ as a ‘stain on America’ after shocking press blunders

President Trump took aim at his favorite target after a week of major screw-ups by the “fake news media,” which he called “a stain on America.”

Trump tweeted: “Very little discussion of all the purposely false and defamatory stories put out this week by the Fake News Media. They are out of control – correct reporting means nothing to them. Major lies written, then forced to be withdrawn after they are exposed…a stain on America.”

Trump made the statement a day after slamming Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel for tweeting a photo of an empty arena in Pensacola, Florida, where the president held a rally on December 8.

Weigel apologized after Trump pointed out that the photo Weigel had gleefully promoted on Twitter to mock the president was taken before the audience had arrived.

If Trump sounds upset, it’s not surprising, since the mainstream media scrutinize and attribute negative motives to his every tweet, gesture, word, and action.

Last week, the media got caught in several disastrous “fake news” lies, including monumental errors by ABC News’ Brian Ross, who was suspended and banned from Trump coverage over a false report about Michael Flynn that sent the stock market tumbling.

Bloomberg then picked up the “fake news” baton by falsely claiming Deutsche Bank had subpoenaed President Trump’s bank records. CNN then rode in with its false reports about WikiLeaks and Don Jr. and the forged yearbook notes by Roy Moore’s accuser.

CNN stepped on another rake by using the wrong photo in a story about White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted: “[email protected], this is definitely not @RajShah45 but it is #FakeNews.”

Sanders then reminded Americans how the anti-Trump media had predicted the stock market would crash and the United States would fall into a recession once Trump became president.

In fact, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has notched more than 80 record highs since Trump took office. The consumer confidence index is soaring, and the nationwide unemployment rate is at a 17-year low.

Moreover, the third-quarter gross domestic product under President Trump just topped 3.3%. In contrast, the GDP under Barack Obama’s eight-year presidency averaged an anemic 1.2%.
