President Donald Trump went on a late-night tweet spree in the early hours of Thursday morning, attacking CNN and MSNBC as well as their various anchors, including Brian Williams, Joe Scarborough and Don Lemon.
“I must admit that Lyin’ Brian Williams is, while dumber than hell, quite a bit smarter than Fake News @CNN ‘anchorman’ Don Lemon, the ‘dumbest man on television’. Then you have Psycho Joe ‘What Ever Happened To Your Girlfriend?’ Scarborough, another of the low I.Q. individuals!” he wrote a little past midnight Easter time.
He attacked CNN for not covering newly-released documents pertaining to the FBI’s 2017 investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, which Trump allies are heralding as proof that the Russia probe was politically motivated.
“.@CNN doesn’t want to speak about their persecution of General Michael Flynn & why they got the story so wrong. They, along with others, should pay a big price for what they have purposely done to this man & his family. They won’t even cover the big breaking news about this scam!” he wrote.
Another tweet specifically attacked CNN for reporting that Trump recently yelled at re-election campaign manager Brad Parscale. Trump dismissed the report as as “made up nonsense,” then pivoted to calling MSNBC’s Williams a “true dummy” in yet another tweet.
Then, Thursday morning, Trump then retweeted his own tweets about CNN and MSNBC for anyone who might have been sleeping when they first went out.
