The president took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to lash out at the liberal media by referring to it as the “fake news media.”
He didn’t offer anything specific in terms of which news outlets he was referring to, nor did he give any clues as to what sparked his tweet, but he did follow up by congratulating Fox News’ morning show for a ratings hike.
The president tweeted: “The Fake News media is officially out of control. They will do or say anything in order to get attention – never been a time like this!” He followed with another tweet: “Congratulations to @foxandfriends on its unbelievable ratings hike.”
The Fake News media is officially out of control. They will do or say anything in order to get attention – never been a time like this!
