Trump Says He Will ‘Probably Terminate’ The Washington Post And The NY Times
During a bizarre interview with Fox News’ Shean Hannity on Monday night, President Donald Trump lashed out at The Washington Post and The New York Times, saying that he will “probably going to terminate” the news outlets from the White house.
“The media is corrupt. Not all the media. I know some great people, including you, but I know some great journalists,” Trump said. “Look, they give Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong. In all these people from The New York Times which is the fake newspaper, we don’t even want it in the White House anymore, and we’re probably going to terminate that and The Washington Post from the White House they are fake.”
Trump didn’t clarify if he meant he was “terminating” the reporters from the White House or the White House’s subscriptions to the papers.
Trump continued, attacking The Times, saying that they apologized to him for their coverage after the election. PolitiFact calls the claim “false.”
“.@realdonaldtrump False, we did not apologize,” they tweeted. “We stand by our coverage & thank our millions of subscribers for supporting our journalism.”

These Trump-Hannity interviews are abysmal, a televised version of Trump’s Twitter rants. It takes a unique lack of journalistic talent to get only lies and nonsense from the president when you talk to him for 30 or so minutes. And yet Hannity does it each and every time.
