Something is getting under the skin of the new snowflake president. Yesterday, speaking at CPAC, he denounced fake news:
President Trump Continues His Attack on ‘Fake News’ During CPAC Speech
President Donald Trump heaped criticism on what he called purveyors of “fake news” on Friday at a gathering of conservative activists that took him back to his roots as an anti-establishment candidate.
Speaking to a large group of conservatives who packed into a hotel ballroom outside Washington, Trump sought to clarify a recent tweet in which he said some in the U.S. news media should be considered an “enemy of the people.”
“I’m against the people that make up stories and make up sources. They shouldn’t be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody’s name. Let their name be out there,” Trump said. “Let there be no more sources.”
Readers, this is hot stuff. Major news outlets, having nothing for the morning’s headlines, are inventing news. Not only are they inventing news, they are inventing sources for their invented news. Invented news, indeed! And who can doubt President Donald Trump. He is, after all, the master of invented news:

@realDonaldTrump Don’t believe the main stream (fake news) media.The White House is running VERY WELL. I inherited a MESS and am in the process of fixing it.
Obviously an expert.
The purveyors of this fake news are certainly not going to take this from a snowflake president without pushing back. When the White House excluded some of them, including Politico, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and even CNN, CNN‘s chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper took to the waves to complain:
What spin meister Tapper wants us to think is that facts the snowflake president finds offensive get dismissed out of hand with the label “fake news.” Which apparently is what is happening, but that’s beside the point.
Other news outlets are piling on, denouncing the snowflake president for calling fake news fake news. Who else is complaining? (You may ask). Fox News, perhaps:
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith defended CNN on Friday after the news organization was barred from spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session at the White House.
“For the record, ‘fake news’ refers to stories that are created, often by entities pretending to be news organizations, solely to draw clicks and views and are based on nothing of substance,” Smith said during his program.
“In short, fake news is made up nonsense delivered for financial gain. CNN’s reporting was not fake news. Its journalists followed the same standards to which other news organizations, including Fox News, adhere,” he added.
Denouncing the news and trumping up charges? No way! Remember, this is something White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said would never happen.
Hey! Who’s the Master of Deception now? Eat your heart out, Little Joseph.
Readers, it’s just getting started. Keep reading.
And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
