At First Press Conference, Trump Calls CNN Fake News!
Donald Trump just finished his first press conference as the President-elect, and he roasted the media (video below). Trump used the opportunity to blast CNN and BuzzFeed over an outrageously fake story they published last night.
The website behind hard hitting pieces such as “How trash are your Dunkin Donuts opinions,” “You can only eat chocolate if you pass this quiz,” and “China finally nailed making ballpoint pens and everyone is excited AF,” released what they claimed was a letter from a retired British intelligence agent detailing Trump’s relationship with Russia, and asserted that the Kremlin has been aiding Trump for the past five years, among many other juicy, and fake, details.
Surprisingly, some in the mainstream media actually did their jobs. CNN picked it up, but few other outlets dared to touch it, as the claims were completely unverifiable and unsourced.
Here’s how President-elect Trump described BuzzFeed:
But it gets even better. For a press conference, what happened was unprecedented for a president-elect. Trump went on the offensive, roasting CNN directly. Take a watch:
Trump got into an argument with a CNN reporter, who he also called out during the presser over their report on a two-page synopsis they claim was presented to Trump.
With Trump looking to call on other reporters, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?”
“Not you,” Trump said. “Your organization is terrible!”
Acosta pressed on, “You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?” Trump countered by telling him “don’t be rude.”
“I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump responded. “I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!”
As those on stage by Trump clapped, Acosta retorted, “Now, Mr. President-elect, that’s not appropriate!”
You know, I could really enjoy eight more years of this.
