White House Press Secretary put the mainstream press in its place Thursday morning after numerous outlets have accused President Donald J. Trump of responsibility for the suspicious packages that have were sent to CNN and high-profile Democrats.
“The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone, no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice last year,” Sanders told the media.
The press has continuously ignored or downplayed acts of violence against Republicans, but has been running 24/7 coverage of the suspicious package ordeal.
Some alleged journalists in the mainstream press clutched their pearls after Trump used to the term “fake news” on Twitter Thursday morning, directing them to “clean up their act” after they have sowed division among Americans during his presidency.
“A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News. It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!” Trump said on Twitter.
