Trump Goes After Post Reporter in Photo Flap

Trump Goes After Post Reporter in Photo Flap

The president added another account of the mainstream media's "fake news" campaign created to tear down his presidency and did not hesitate to put the Washington Post reporter on the spot for disseminating false information about his "Make America Great Again" event.

Trump posted a screengrab of Weigel's Tweet on Saturday, along with photos of him standing in front of a packed arena.

According to a report on nymag.com, Weigel posted an image showing Trump's Pensacola rally venue mostly empty, with a message quoting Trump's later assertion that the arena was "packed to the rafters".

Meanwhile, Twitter comedians are fabricating their own feuds with Trump, which are at least as credible as the actual president's obsession with the crowd sizes.

"Take a moment and follow @daveweigel, a great reporter and a fantastic guide to this political age", David Fahrenthold said on Twitter.

Sam Allardyce: 'Everton penalty decision in Merseyside derby was correct'
Football is a very emotional game and we as managers are not always in dressing room after the game. He asked Sky Sports' Patrick Davison what he thought of the challenge.

From the Annals of Irony: Donald Trump threw a tantrum after my former AINN colleague Dave Weigel mistakenly posted a picture from his recent rally in Pensacola showing a lot of empty seats. "There is a difference between honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people".

'@DaveWeigel @WashingtonPost put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived @ the venue, w/ thousands of people outside, on their way in, ' he wrote. Packed house, many people unable to get in.

U.S. President Donald Trump has rarely been shy to voice his disapproval of the Washington Post, a newspaper he has repeatedly denounced as being a "fake news" organization.

But that didn't satisfy the president, who called Weigel's original tweet "FAKE NEWS" and said, "he should be fired".

"Sure thing: I apologise".

Saakashvili then led protesters towards parliament in Kiev , calling for President Petro Poroshenko to be removed from office. His overall support in Ukraine appears low - a weekend rally that called attracted only about 3,000 people.

The Washington Post later released a statement admitting that Weigel used "an inaccurate image" in his tweet about the Trump rally. I deleted the photo after @dmartosko told me I'd gotten it wrong. "Very fair to call me out", he wrote.

'FAKE NEWS, he should be fired'.

Limbaugh had called for then-President Barack Obama to fail, and when the radio host was hospitalized with chest pains, Weigel reportedly wrote, "I hope he fails". The emphasis is that of the president and not of the Round Table.

The day of the Florida rally, CNN issued a correction of a report that had claimed that Donald Trump Jr. received advance notice about documents stolen from the Democratic National Committee in July 2016. "You should have been apologizing for the last two years", Trump said at Friday's rally.

"Fake News CNN made a vicious and purposeful mistake yesterday", Trump tweeted on Saturday morning before tweeting about Weigel's photo.

Alita: Battle Angel Trailer Arrives
For one thing, Salazar looks incredible as the wide-eyed heroine, and her quiet moments look as compelling as her action beats. Cameron originally outlined Alita as a trilogy of films, so there's a chance the movie could be the start of a franchise.

He continued: "CNN'S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS".
