(NationalSentinel) President-elect Donald J. Trump, targeted once again by some in the mainstream media with phony allegationsÂ of ties to Russia and raunchy sexual proclivities, lashed out at a reporter of one of the culprit news organizations during his first official press conference this morning.
Reacting to broadcast and published reports by CNNÂ andÂ BuzzfeedÂ regardingÂ an unsourced, unsubstantiated 35-page “dossier” that was turned over to U.S. intelligence agencies by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Ron Wilson, a longtime GOP operative, Trump lashed out atÂ CNN‘s news conference correspondent, after labelingÂ BuzzfeedÂ a “failing piece of garbage.”
AsÂ The Daily Wire noted:
With a breathless breaking news report, left-wing CNN went first. To no oneâ€™s surprise, the once-respected Jake Tapper took the lead. Undoubtedly CNNâ€™s overall goal was to offer up the imprimatur of â€œjournalismâ€ so that a batch of leaked andÂ completely unsubstantiated anti-Trump documentsÂ could be dumped on the American public the night before the President-electâ€™s very first press conference.
Included were references to Trump being assisted by the Russians in defeating Hillary Clinton, via contacts that allegedly go back years, and an allegationÂ Trump once paid Russian hookers to stage a â€œgolden showerâ€ on a Moscow hotel room bed where President Obama and the first lady stayed once.
CNN‘s Jim Acosta called out to Trump during media questioning, but Trump wouldn’t give him the time of day.
â€œSince you are attacking us, can you give us a question?â€
â€œNot you,â€ Trump said. â€œYour organization is terrible!â€
Acosta pressed on, â€œYou are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?â€ Trump countered by telling him, â€œDonâ€™t be rude.â€
â€œIâ€™m not going to give you a question,â€ Trump responded. â€œIâ€™m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!â€
The mainstream media is not accustomed to being called out or shut out, but in the Age of Trump, whose tweets serve as his media platform, is not about to kowtow to a Fifth Estate that has mocked, ridiculed, and lied about him every step of the way thus far in his campaign and transition–and which is not about to let up on him once he takes office.
It could be that eventually, once the Trump administration takes office officially, some news organizations that have been particularly egregious in their treatment of him will find themselves completely cut off from covering the White HouseÂ from the White House, as in, having their White House press credentials revoked.
In any event, none of this fabrication was happenstance. Trump is set to be inaugurated in less than nine days, and this “story” was timed as one parting shot to take Trump out.
