President #Trump continues to crush incompetent #CNN and the rest of the #elitemedia

Screenshot 2017-12-10 at 07.49.39His tweets have the power to shape international relations, send stock prices up — or down — and galvanize the American public.

On the occasions when the media makes a mistake, he’s quick to pile it on.

The source of his anger on Saturday morning was a fake news report by CNN on Friday, when the network wrongly reported that the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. may have been notified about hacked emails obtained by WikiLeaks before they were publicly released. The notification didn’t come until after they were made public, and a humiliated CNN was forced to admit the report was fake news.

CNN’s actions come on the heels of  another recent fake news report from ABC, which led that network to suspend one of its star investigative reporters, Brian Ross.

Trump continued to criticize the network Saturday morning, saying it may be committing “a fraud on the American Public” by calling itself “the most trusted name in news.”

On Saturday afternoon, Trump also went after a Washington Post reporter for tweeting a photograph of a half-empty arena in Pensacola, Fla., and suggesting that it was taken while the president spoke at a rally there Friday night.
