Trump’s “Fake News” Ultimatum

President Trump lashed out at the “fake media” in a Friday morning tweetstorm – defending his spokespeople for inaccuracies in their accounts of his dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

“The Fake Media is working overtime today!” he declared. “As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!” he wrote.

“Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future ‘press briefings’ and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???” he wrote.

Trump also doubled down on his denials of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
