On Tuesday, the White House Office of the Press Secretary showed their appreciation for Washington Post fact-checkers despite Donald Trump’s constant attack against the newspaper.
Dave Levinthal, a senior reporter with the Center for Public Integrity, pointed out the irony in a Twitter post on Tuesday. He shared multiple screenshots of Trump’s attack on the newspaper.
He tweeted saying:
“The [White House] Office of the Press Secretary sends out an official statement touting the ace fact-checking efforts of the [Washington Post], which [Trump] routinely calls “FAKE NEWS” and accuses of fabrications.”
“Because, of course,” he added.
