The Washington Post’s fact checker hit back at Donald Trump on Tuesday after the president criticized the newspaper’s truth-squad column as being “only for the Democrats.”
“The Washington Post is a Fact Checker only for the Democrats,” Trump tweeted. “For the Republicans, and for your all time favorite President, it is a Fake Fact Checker!”
Glenn Kessler, the Post’s fact-checker columnist, responded in a tweet that Trump has in the past cited his team’s work when it plays to his advantage. “Reminder: Trump cites the @washingtonpost Fact Checker when we give Pinocchios to Democrats,” Kessler tweeted.
