White House press secretary Sarah Sanders continues to slice ’em and dice ’em — fake news stories, that is.
Sanders fired back at a Wall Street Journal report that misquoted President Trump as saying: “I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un.”
Keep in mind that Trump has repeatedly slammed the North Korean dictator as “rocket man” and “short and fat,” so it defies logic for the media to suggest Trump is bragging that he has “a very good relationship” with Kim right now.
Sanders produced audio recordings of Trump’s remarks, where he is heard saying “I’d” — not “I” — as the WSJ claims (listen below).
In the audio, President Trump says the following: “As you know, I have a great relationship with Prime Minister Abe of Japan. And, you know, I’d probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un of North Korea.”

Sanders blasted the Wall Street Journal with a Twitter meme that trumpeted: “The Wall Street Journal. Fake News Is At It Again! Falsely Quoting President Trump.”
The Wall Street Journal said it stands by its reporting despite the fact that the audio clearly shows President Trump saying “I’d,” not “I.”

While quibbling over a single word might seem ridiculous, this is what we’ve been reduced to in light of the avalanche of fake news emanating from the anti-Trump media, which has been caught lying about his koi fish-feeding manners, among other things.
Sarah Sanders blasted the WSJ over the misquote amid the Journal’s report claiming Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, had paid $130,000 in hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels (real name: Stephanie Clifford) to keep quiet about an alleged affair Trump had with her in 2006.
Skeptics point out that Trump is a notorious germaphobe, so the idea that he had an affair with a porn star is surprising. Cohen clapped back by producing a letter he claims was from Stormy Daniels/Stephanie Clifford, where she denies all the media reports:
Detractors immediately trashed Cohen’s letter, claiming it was forged.
Keep in mind that the last time the media defamed Michael Cohen, he slapped them with a whopping $100 million defamation lawsuit. As they say, money talks and BS walks. Stay tuned.
