How Not to Respond to Being Called a 'Horseface'...
President Trump hilariously attacked the "fake news media" who "make up sources" and joked about CNN being the "Clinton News Network" on Friday at CPAC 2017.
"The media didn't think we would win. The pundits didn't think we'd win. The consultants that sucked up all that money... didn't think we would win. But they all underestimated the power of the people. And the people proved them all wrong."
"I'm not against the media," Trump said. "I am against only the fake news media or the press. Fake."Trump may have been referencing a tweet from Joe Scarborough last week which really emphasized how the media simply makes stuff up off the top of their heads.
Trump tweeted out on Feburary 17th: "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"
Scarborough responded saying: "Only a FAKE PRESIDENT would declare the First Amendment to be the enemy of the American people."
The top response on twitter pointed out how Schmo Scarborough made up a fake quote so he could knockdown a straw-man:
Pro-tip: if you don't want to be called fake news, stop making up fake news.
