President Trump unleashed a defensive attack on the “Fake News Media” earlier today on Twitter.
I use Social Media not because I like to, but because it is the only way to fight a VERY dishonest and unfair “press,” now often referred to as Fake News Media. Phony and non-existent “sources” are being used more often than ever. Many stories & reports a pure fiction!

Naturally, the denizens of Twitter would not let such an obviously self-serving tweet go unanswered.

Mr. Trump, I predict that you'll resign in less than a year due to financial crimes and obstruction justice uncovered by the mueller team. Happy New Year.

But most of your tweets are lies

"now often referred to as Fake News Media"
Denture Donald, YOU are the ONLY one saying that.

Absurd! Social media is not NEWS. And #FakeNews is lead by @FoxNews, which is the state controlled media arm and @BreitbartNews which is total bull crap. You have lied almost 2000 Times in a year. How do you sleep at night #WorstPresidentEver

Many of the facts and figures you post on your twitter are pure fiction as well. I would say that’s pretty “FAKE” Mr. President.

You express things just as poorly with Twitter from the Golden Shitter as you do with any format of mass media.
But keep doing you.

You lied 24 times in a 30 minute interview yesterday. Spare us the propaganda, comrade.

We think he incriminates himself so often that it can only serve to his detriment! Keep going, Trump!

Ok… so we're supposed 2 believe long standing, well respected media outlets, AND our intelligence agencies, AND the Dems, AND many Reps, AND experts in their fields, AND our allies, AND most ppl are ALL lying but YOU & ur lil group of cronies are telling the truth??
Tell it to the rest of the country – everyone in NYC has been on to your scam for decades.

Please keep using social media. All of them will one day be marked as exhibits for your trial.

It kind of makes you wonder why he even bothers, until you read the tweet replies from the people who swallow his BS hook, line, and sinker. Those are the some people you can fool all of the time.
The post Trump just tried to defend his social media use on Twitter. The reactions are hilarious appeared first on Washington Press.
