President retweets Geraldo in response to BuzzFeed blow up, but it’s Don Jr who goes on a hilarious roll

Following the release of a rare statement by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office disputing BuzzFeed’s dubious claims that President Donald Trump had once ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, something odd happened.

The president immediately chose Fox News host Geraldo Rivera’s reaction to retweet – the same Geraldo Rivera who has a habit of constantly bashing him like he’s a piñata:

Funny choice of messenger, but the message was dead on.

“At what point in fairness-after 2 years do Americans of good will say enough already? If the #SpecialCounsel had collusion don’t you think we would have heard it by now? This is history’s longest running smear job. Free @realDonaldTrump Reflect. Negotiate. Open the government,”  Rivera’s tweets read.

“This is just the most egregious example of the rampant unfairness that has tainted this partisan witch-hunt from the beginning. The utter hatred for @realDonaldTrump has empowered a legion of back stabbers wielding flamboyant falsehoods to undermine @POTUS.”

The anger was so palpable because the entire mainstream media spent all of Friday touting BuzzFeed’s since-discredited allegations as concrete facts.

But not everybody reacted to Mueller’s announcement with rage. Trump Jr. reacted by first laughing in glee and then calling out the media for their constantly false narratives.


Over the course of his father’s presidency, the media have run a near-endless stream of since-retracted reports, all of them negative. As noted by Trump Jr. last year, the new standard for “journalism” isn’t to report the facts, it would seem, but rather to push fake news and hope it’s true.


It’s why the president and his allies have been so critical of the media — because it seems as if they act like arms of the Democrat Party versus paragons of unbiased truth.

Speaking of Democrats, they too earned jeers and mockery Friday for having bought BuzzFeed’s dubious narrative hook, line and sinker — and then used it to claim it was time to  impeach the president.


Actually, it turns out the whole media is often “Full of Schiff.” Who knew!?
