During this today’s broadcast of CNN’s The Lead, host Jake Tapper took aim at President Donald Trump’s continuing war with the mainstream media, who the president now blames for the ouster of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Pointing out that the president today attacked reports surrounding Trump advisers being in contact with Russian intelligence officials, Tapper highlighted the fact that White House press secretary Sean Spicer said yesterday that Trump specifically pushed Flynn out over an erosion of trust.

However, during a news conference today, Trump called Flynn “a wonderful man” who had been treated “unfairly” by the “fake media.” “The media, of course, did not fire General Flynn,” Tapper noted. “President Trump did.”
