The other day the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal published a scathing critique Trump’s daily “press briefings.” The essence of it was that he is eroding his own credibility with all the nonsense and that he should step back and let someone like Pence or Fauci run the briefings.
How did Bozo the President respond? Here is his tweet . . .
“The Wall Street Journal always “forgets” to mention that the ratings for the White House Press Briefings are “through the roof” (Monday Night Football, Bachelor Finale, according to @nytimes) & is only way for me to escape the Fake News & get my views across. WSJ is Fake News!”
Two salient points. This idiot measures success by TV ratings. OMG, better ratings than the Bachelor Finale. The Republic is saved!
And, secondly, it is clear that “fake news” simply means critical of Trump. It would be hard to find a major publication that has been more friendly to him than the Wall Street Journal, but there is that charge . . . “WSJ is Fake News!”
