President Trump has continually called out the “fake news.” He pointed out for the record that the fake news media are the “enemy of the people” and tweeted Monday, “The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News. They get it, and fully understand!”
Check out tweets from last two days. I refer to Fake News Media when mentioning Enemy of the People – but dishonest reporters use only the word “Media.” The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News. They get it, and fully understand!
