‘More Indictments Coming!’: Internet Trashes Trump For Crazy Attack On News Media, ‘Excluding Fox’
President Trump just can’t stop attacking journalists. On Monday, the erratic president fired off a new tweet attacking what he calls “the fake news media —not including Fox—” for no particular reason other than reporting the news.
“We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me),” Trump tweeted. “They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!”
Trump also attacked NBC’s “Morning Joe” for airing a pre-taped segment the day after Thanksgiving.
“The good news is that their ratings are terrible, nobody cares!” he wrote.
The president’s messages come one day after he returned from South Florida, where he spent Thanksgiving with his family.
Trump made five trips to his golf courses and took repeated jabs at the media on Twitter over the holiday weekend.
His latest shots come just hours before he is set to meet with members of the Senate Finance Committee to discuss their push to pass a major tax bill.
Senators are hoping to approve the legislation in the coming days in an effort to send a finished product to Trump’s desk before Christmas. But GOP leaders do not yet have the 50 votes they need to pass the measure.

Fox, Fox, Fox. The most dishonest with the exception of Shepard Smith who blew the lid off the Clinton uranium deal and told the truth. Nothing to see there.

More heart attacks occur on Monday than on any other day of the week.
More heart attacks occur between the hours of 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. than at any other time of day.
