Trump unleashes on the media in morning tweetstorm

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump railed against the news media in a Tuesday morning burst on Twitter, complaining that he is subjected to an unprecedented level of press scrutiny and lashing out directly at The New York Times, CNN and others.

“Paul Krugman, of the Fake News New York Times, has lost all credibility, as has the Times itself, with his false and highly inaccurate writings on me,” Trump wrote in his first post of the day, attacking the economic columnist who is often critical of the White House. “He is obsessed with hatred, just as others are obsessed with how stupid he is. He said Market would crash, Only Record Highs!”

In a second tweet, the president added: “I wonder if the New York Times will apologize to me a second time, as they did after the 2016 Election. But this one will have to be a far bigger & better apology. On this one they will have to get down on their knees & beg for forgiveness-they are truly the Enemy of the People!”

In a letter to readers following the 2016 election, publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. and executive editor Dean Baquet wondered whether Trump’s “sheer unconventionality lead us and other news outlets to underestimate his support among American voters,” and pledged to rededicate itself to probing the driving forces of the election. But Trump has frequently claimed that the Times apologized to him for its coverage in the wake of his election, something the paper has repeatedly denied took place.

1. MJ's been fucking with his head all morning, repeating negative polls...



....Dumb and Sick. A really bad show with low ratings - and will only get worse. CNN has been a proven and long term ratings and beyond disaster. In fact, it rewarded Chris Cuomo with a now unsuccessful prime time slot, despite his massive failure in the morning. Only on CNN!

2. Trump on Krugman, " ... just as others are obsessed with how stupid he is."

American Paul Krugman wins Nobel prize for economics


Krugman was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (informally the Nobel Prize in Economics), the sole recipient for 2008. This prize includes an award of about $1.4 million and was given to Krugman for his work associated with New Trade Theory and the New Economic Geography. In the words of the prize committee, "By having integrated economies of scale into explicit general equilibrium models, Paul Krugman has deepened our understanding of the determinants of trade and the location of economic activity."

7. What a loser

Princeton, Yale, MIT, City University of NY, & London School of Economics. I would have gone to
or taught @ all those schools if i wanted to but I wanted to be true to myself and so I got a 2.3 from
Ohio U. (Harvard on the Hocking) in biology.

And too bad Krugman hasn't written anything, gotten some awards, or done some public speaking.

11. He brings all this on himself.

He obviously has nothing better to do than tweet constantly. He needs a JOB. He is correct that Morning Joe helped get him elected, with their free advertising and call-ins daily. Well, with help from Russian bloggers, the gop voter frauds, and the Electoral College being awarded. He certainly did not "win" without major dirty tricks.

18. When you promote propaganda like he does

And the free press prints the truth, he has to attack them and the truth to make his propaganda effective, just like Putin does in Russia. That's another clue he's working on behalf of Putin.

19. Trump who? Our nation is not run on social media.

We are a sick nation that gives attention to any public official that gives pretend press conferences on social media.

In addition, any public media organization that reports information from social media as official government pronouncements should be publicly shamed as irresponsible and not worthy of reading or subscription.

Let's drag our government out of the children's playhouse.........

There's just those nagging investigations and reporters digging into the Trump crimes and crime family. But he's "never felt better in his life".

He looks like shit. I've never seen him look so old and disheveled. It makes my heart soar like an eagle!

in this war of words and truth. It's up to the Democrats to do what we can to save the country.

He'll never let up. If there's not something to rail against, he'll make it up.

His total absence of a sense of humor might just be the thing that finally wakes up the country and saves us from total destruction.
