President Trump came out swinging Saturday morning slamming The New York Times and “third rate” reporter Maggie Haberman who published a false news story.

The President is fed up with the fake news, but he’s not afraid to call them out.

President Trump says the stories being peddled are an attempt to “destroy” personal lawyer Michael Cohen by suggesting he will betray the president to avoid prison.

The article published by Maggie Haberman, is titled “Michael Cohen Has Said He Would Take a Bullet for Trump. Maybe Not Anymore.”

Trump slammed the story in a tweet storm.

The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Haberman, known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will “flip.”

They use non-existent “sources” and a drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael, a fine person with a wonderful family. Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected. Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble, even if it means lying or making up stories. Sorry, I don’t see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!”

Maggie Haberman writes:

For years, a joke among Trump Tower employees was that the boss was like Manhattan’s First Avenue, where the traffic goes only one way.

That one-sidedness has always been at the heart of President Trump’s relationship with his longtime lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, who has said he would “take a bullet” for Mr. Trump. For years Mr. Trump treated Mr. Cohen poorly, with gratuitous insults, dismissive statements and, at least twice, threats of being fired, according to interviews with a half-dozen people familiar with their relationship. 

“Donald goes out of his way to treat him like garbage,” said Roger J. Stone Jr., Mr. Trump’s informal and longest-serving political adviser, who, along with Mr. Cohen, was one of five people originally surrounding the president when he was considering a presidential campaign before 2016.

Now, for the first time, the traffic may be going Mr. Cohen’s way. Mr. Trump’s lawyers and advisers have become resigned to the strong possibility that Mr. Cohen, who has a wife and two children and faces the prospect of devastating legal fees, if not criminal charges, could end up cooperating with federal officials who are investigating him for activity that could relate, at least in part, to work he did for Mr. Trump.

Soon after the president’s tweets, Haberman and the New York Times responded with posts of their own – with both highlighting that Trump misspelled the reporter’s last name in a now-deleted tweet on the same subject.

“One B, sir (or Dan?). Here’s the story that seems to have touched a nerve,” she wrote in one tweet, which she followed with: “When I was reporting this story, I said one person who’s observed the Cohen-Trump relationship that Trump has been abusive to him. The person replied, ‘He’s abusive to everybody.’”

The newspaper’s communications Twitter account said: “We are extremely proud of @maggieNYT, who is a part of a team that just won a Pulitzer Prize. We stand by our story and our reporting.”

    Threatening people to make them tell lies to build up a dishonest case against the President is a disgusting tactic. It’s not like we haven’t seen it before though from Hillary the Dems and their cronies. The fake Russian dossier is a prime example of how low they are prepared to go. Mueller given a brief which, when he finds nothing, he just extends further. At this rate, he’ll be questioning the President’s kindergarten teacher. Their latest lawsuit is just a symptom of their absolute desperation to unseat The President before he curtails their corruption. It’s a sad end to a Party that used to have morals.

  2. I guess the lamestream media continues to assume all Americans are stupid,crazy, or both.
    The nyt (aka the new york slime), is obviously in bed with many others including the washington post (aka the washington compost) and the local propaganda mill, the san jose mercury news,(aka the sj feminazi fishwrap). Far too many publications seem to have no acquaintance with the truth, dutifully repeating all the propaganda from any and all sources including poison coming from known enemies of America. Sadly, there’s no hope that the swamp and the other ‘enemies within’ will suddenly decide to switch sides and help us repair the terrible damage they’ve done to our country for the last 30 t0 40 years. It would be nice because making America great again would be so much faster and easier. Here’s a suggestion: Those folks such as: all the entrenched bureaucracies especially the epa, obama, the clintons, jerry brown & all his “friends” , maxine waters, nancy pelosi, the revs jesse jackson, al sharpton, jeremiah wright, Tom Steyer, George Soros, etc. who like places that practice communism, socialism, fascism, sharia law, and similar should be allowed and even encouraged–to go live there. And of course we can’t exclude those fine folks from BAMN, ANTIFA, and all the other groups that hate America. If they find they don’t like it–oh well. No backsies, folks. You shoulda done your homework. No worries though; you won’t last long. Kim Jung Un needs more slaves anyway, since too many are escaping.
    With that little problem solved, making America great again would happen very soon–and we might even be able to keep it that way! Actually, there’s no reason not to, since the Constitution and the Bill of Rights was created after careful study of many other societies that became great, but ultimately failed and fell, so we could avoid the mistakes they made. Our Founders worked long and hard to ensure our freedoms, our prosperity and continued existence. While it’s true – we’re hated by tyrannies around the world but envied for our unprecedented success. America is NOT as fools have declared–the great experiment–we are the result of the genius and very hard work that created us. We fought tyranny at great cost for our existence-are we perfect? Of course not. However; of all societies that have come before, America has provided the highest standard of living in the world. That has forged a powerful Legacy that should not and absolutely can not perish from this earth; to paraphrase the Great Abraham Lincoln. God Bless you Mr. President, and God Bless America.
