Donald Trump’s war with the press has backfired so bad that even the right-wing nutjobs at Fox News can’t justify his delusions any longer.
On Monday, Trump visited MacDill Air Force Base in Florida. But inInstead of addressing the needs of the military, he descended into another conspiracy theory, accusing the media of not providing enough coverage of terror attacks. Of course, that’s a lie.
Trump said, “And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report terror attacks. They have their reasons, and you understand that,”
The administration then released a list of “78 major terror attacks” that the press supposedly hadn’t covered. Trump’s cronies hastily put this press release together to prove the President was right.
But the laughable typo-filled document just showed how out of touch with reality Trump really is. Most of the attacks listed had been thoroughly covered by the media, and some the attacks weren’t even related to terror or hadn’t even happened.
This petty and stupid assault on the press by the Trump administration was more than even Shepard Smith could bear. He went off on Trump for his bold-faced lies.
Smith commented on air, “In short, the president’s assertion is false. The White House knows that it was false or could have learned that it was false with a quick Google check, but either did not do so or decided not to tell the truth.”
Trump is a pathological liar and mentally unstable and some at Fox News have finally realized that fact. It’s about time.
