Donald Trump started his Monday morning the only way he knows how: attacking the media.
Trump took to Twitter Monday morning slamming the media, stating that every story written by “the fake media” is “badly slanted.”
“The Fake Media (not Real Media) has gotten even worse since the election. Every story is badly slanted. We have to hold them to the truth!” Trump tweeted.

Trump stated earlier Monday morning that the media didn’t cover a recent House special election in Kansas, where Republican Rob Estes defeated Democrat James Thompson by 7 percentage points.
But Trump’s statement on Monday was a complete 180 degrees from his original statement about that same election. He said the media had given the race too much attention when it appeared it was close and not enough after Estes pulled out the win.
“The recent Kansas election (Congress) was a really big media event, until the Republicans won. Now they play the same game with Georgia-BAD!” Trump tweeted.
Also, leave it to Trump to praise Fox News for praising him.
“‘The first 90 days of my presidency has exposed the total failure of the last eight years of foreign policy!’ So true. @foxandfriends,” Trump said.
