Trump Accuses ‘Fake News Media’ of ‘Purposely Incorrect Stories’ and ‘Agenda of Hate’

POTUS says they’ve “never been so wrong or so dirty” in early morning tweet

President Donald Trump accused the “fake news media” of publishing “purposely incorrect stories” and having an “agenda of hate” in an early morning Tweet on Tuesday.

It’s not clear what particular story upset the president, but he is known to watch Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” and has publicly praised the morning show in the past.

On Monday, Trump tweeted a presidential-sounding message regarding the anniversary of Pulse night club shooting in Orlando. However, the panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” ripped Trump earlier in the day for his continuous rants on Twitter, with co-host Mika Brzezinski saying, “He can’t help himself.”

Co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “It’s really causing a problem for the presidency.”

The 9th Circuit Court even struck down Trump’s travel ban and used his own Twitter account against him in the process, as a three-judge panel cited Trump’s latest tweets in the decision. Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to comment on the ruling.

The president also retweeted a message that said, “Liberals have an agenda and it’s not in America’s best interest. Keep fighting the good fight! We stand with you President Trump!”

Actor and vocal conservative James Woods hit up Twitter last week to offer some counsel to the chief executive about using the social media platform. Or, rather, not using Twitter.

“Word to the wise, Mr. President,” Woods wrote. “The #Left is doing a bang-up job of hanging itself. They really don’t need more rope. #Silence #TweetNoMore.”

Last week, White House staffers were reportedly surprised that the president managed to stay off Twitter while former FBI Director James Comey was grilled by the Senate Intelligence Committee. Of course, soon after, the president couldn’t help himself, tweeting that Comey’s testimony “totally vindicated” him in the Russia investigation.
