Trump Lies About “Fake News” CNN Yet Again

CNN, of course, did report on Trump’s latest attack:

Even when he’s thousands of miles from home, President Trump defaults back to his “fake news” insult whenever it’s convenient or politically expedient. He called on NBC’s Kristen Welker, who asked, “Are you giving Russian president Vladimir Putin the upper hand heading into your talks, given that you are challenging these alliances that he seeks to break up and destroy?”

Trump: “See, that’s such dishonest reporting,” he said, lambasting both NBC and CNN, which he frequently lumps together. Later, CNN’s Jim Acosta tried to ask a question: “Mr. President, since you attacked CNN, can I ask you a question?” “No, no,” Trump responded, calling the network “fake news.”

“I don’t take questions from CNN,” Trump said, even though he did take a question from CNN’s Jeremy Diamond on Thursday. Trump then called on Fox News correspondent John Roberts and called Fox “real news.”
