Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump held his first news conference since winning the election. The timing coincided with a fake news report from Buzzfeed accusing Russia of blackmailing Trump with personal information involving Russian prostitutes and financial information. That report has already been discredited.
New organizations were hungry to pick up the story and cited Buzzfeed as breaking the story in an attempt to provide cover from the fact that it was completely false. One organization paid dearly for this mistake when they were humiliated by the President-elect during his press conference.
Trump refused to answer a question from CNN because they were promoting the phony story.
In the video below, you can hear him telling the reporter that CNN is “fake news” and they wouldn’t be getting to ask a question today! Trump is not about to give them a free pass for lying about him!
BOOM! In the past, Republicans have carefully tiptoed around the press when lies are being peddled about them. But, Donald Trump isn’t your average Republican politician!
In another video below, Trump directly addresses the false news report during the press conference. He called it a “disgrace” and “nonsense.”
Trump isn’t going to be polite when false information about him is being peddled by the media that wants to take him down. We are going from the Error of Obama to the Era of Trump. It’s a completely new ballgame.
