President Donald Trump has had it up to his eyeballs with “fake news.” He, like the rest of the informed American public, simply can’t take it anymore. Now, 45 goes for the jugular…
From Western Journal:
President Donald Trump responded early Monday to piece published by The New York Times, which claimed that the president spends hours watching television each day.
“He flips to CNN for news, moves to ‘Fox & Friends’ for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day,” the story reads.
The Times piece, “Inside Trump’s Hour-By-Hour Battle for Self-Preservation” alleged that Trump “‘hate-watches’ CNN to get worked up, especially Don Lemon.”
Trump responded to the claims by tweeting that the reporting was false, and Don Lemon is the “dumbest man on television.”
Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting.

Very little discussion of all the purposely false and defamatory stories put out this week by the Fake News Media. They are out of control – correct reporting means nothing to them. Major lies written, then forced to be withdrawn after they are exposed…a stain on America!

More from AJC:
Lemon, whose show airs at 10 p.m. on CNN, has not responded himself. He joined CNN in 2006 and was a long-time anchor in Atlanta before moving to New York in 2013 at the behest of president Jeff Zucker. Lemon’s prominence has only risen since he came to New York.
Good on Trump for standing up for himself.
Nobody else will – or, at least, certainly not as well.
Lemon and others in the mainstream media need to learn their place and report the news factually!
