    In Case You Didn't Know POTUS Doesn't Like the Press

    I think The Salesman might prefer a press akin to that in North Korea. He might even like the title Dear Leader. My favorite part of the attached story is Maggie Habbermans tweet. Oh The Donald.

    LOL

    Trump relishes the fight.
    Time and time again, he seizes us-versus-them opportunities, casting the media as an opponent that must be defeated.


    He says he likes some reporters, but labels others as "dishonest" examples of "fake news."


    Wednesday's tweet was apparently provoked by news coverage of Trump's summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.




    "So funny to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN," he wrote.


    "They are fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea.


    500 days ago they would have 'begged' for this deal -- looked like war would break out.

    Our Country's biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!"



    New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman translated the tweet this way: "Someone is unhappy with headlines reflecting what happened instead of what he wants to say happened."


    MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked: "What deal? There is no deal with North Korea."

    Thank God for Twitter and Trumps adroit use of it to bypass the MSM and to troll his detractors. "Salesman" indeed.

    Actually, when he ran for election. He got unprecedented "free" campaign exposure due to coverage from the press at large because he was such a novelty.

    But the Press' negative spin on everything Trump is doing him a great favor in upping his positive numbers.

    then how do explain all the rave reviews Trump got for stealing money from the general public? Why are they keeping Obama in the news as much as Hillary?
    They want something. Trump is giving them nothing, so they hate him.

    Actually, I don't watch that Network. I get most of my news from print and PBS and NPR.
