CNN has picked the wrong fight with the wrong man on Wednesday, as President-Elect Trump absolutely lambasted the liberal media outlet during a press conference.
The event itself, held in response to CNN and Buzzfeed’s reporting on an unsubstantiated and unverifiable report of blackmail by the Russians in regard to Donald Trump, was highlighted by a raucous exchange between the President-Elect and a reporter from the leftist echo-chamber. Trump, echoing what many Americans feel about the shoddy and degrading “journalism” of the left, took the bold approach of finally admitting that CNN was “fake news”.
“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!’”
This latest spat between the President-Elect and Donald Trump comes at an all-important time in the transition of The Donald into The White House, as liberal media outlets have been working overtime to smear and delegitimize the forthcoming presidency.
