Trump: 'Fake' Media Is 'Distorting Democracy'

Last edited Sun Jul 16, 2017, 08:29 AM - Edit history (1)

Source: The Daily Beast




President Donald Trump lashed out at the news media on Twitter Sunday morning, saying reporters are “distorting democracy” by using anonymous sources. “With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!” Trump tweeted. Officials in Trump’s administration often request anonymity when speaking with reporters. In an earlier tweet, he said his son, Donald Trump Jr., is being “scorned” for his meeting with Russians while Hillary Clinton “illegally (got) the questions to the Debate & (deleted) 33,000 emails.”

Trump launches early morning Twitter attack on Hillary Clinton while blaming media for ‘distorting democracy’

President Donald Trump kicked off his weekly Sunday morning Twitter frenzy by raging about Hillary Clinton and the “fake news” and defending his son, Donald Trump Jr.

While Trump was mostly silent on Saturday following attending a women’s golf tournament at his New Jersey golf course, Sunday morning he was back to his usual antics, complaining about how the media covers him and talking about Clinton again.

“Hillary Clinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?” he wrote to begin the morning.

And then he was off.

27. He and his family do not care if they start a civil war that kills one hundred million Americans.

AT all..

Not at all, in fact if that would translate to profits somehow, they would be all for it.

13. Why don't the media call him out on his BS? There is no evidence HC received debate questions.

Each time Trump lies like this the headline should include the words Trump and lie. The media outlets should state that they have requested that the White House provide evidence, and they should keep following up by repeating the request. People believe his BS. His BS fatally wounded HS because the media let is go out without the media doing enough to challenge it.

25. He wouldn't know what democracy was if it bit him on his fat, fucking ass.

I am so sick of his inane, ridiculous tweets. All he does is project and his base just laps it up. Somebody needs to cut him off. The only one distorting democracy is HIM!
