He’s a bit upset these days.

…Trump on Wednesday would not let a reporter from CNN ask him a question during a press conference, saying that he worked for a “fake news” company.

The contentious exchange happened after Trump trashed a report CNN published Tuesday that said the U.S. intelligence community had presented him with allegations that the Russian government had compromising, but unverified, information about him.

      Somehow appearing on Alex Jones’ show and calling CNN fake news doesn’t seem crazy to half the country … that’s scary.

      • William

        True. The guy that started the birther movement is all about responsibility in media.

    • StoneyCurtisll

      Exactly.

      If they just print what was truthful, it would take fewer lines, and little time.

  • eyelashviper

    tRump fails to see the long term results of attacking the press, intelligence agencies, the military, etc…
    They all can determine his fate, one way or another.

  • misterme

    Well, he’s a fake candidate.

    • Larry Schmitt

      It’s beyond that, he’s a fake president-elect.

  • Larry Schmitt

    Fake news, as opposed to Breitbart and Infowars. Every time he opens his big fat orange mouth, he shows his complete ignorance. He’s going to end up embarrassing the entire country in front of the entire world. It will take generations to recover whatever credibility we had.

  • labman57

    This is Donald’s interpretation of acting “presidential”.

    Trump could have responded “You suck!” and it would have had just as much substance, validity, and impact.

    • Suzanne McFly

      Well he could shoot someone on 5th Ave too and not one of his voters would of changed their mind about him either. He is the new Teflon Don, hopefully he will join the original TD and be lifetime bunk mates.

  • Foundryman

    Isn’t it amazing how the “Lame Stream” media is morphing into the Fake News right before our eyes? Once Trump gets everyone to believe only HE can tell the truth and only HE has all the answers, liberty will be dead.

    • whatthe46

      like the idiot up above “powder…” has proven your point.

  • Powder Hound boss

    CNN is suppose to be credible. They deserve this treatment. They are no different than Info Wars or Breitbart at this point.

    • StoneyCurtisll

      What is fake about a report CNN published Tuesday that said the U.S. intelligence community had presented him with allegations that the Russian government had
      compromising, but unverified, information about him.
      There is nothing fake about the story CNN presented…

      • Powder Hound boss

        CNN gives fake news daily. Here are a few quotes from a CCN article.
        Believe what you will…in all fairness though, CNN can not help being biased against Trump. Trump won and the hard left just can not accept it.

        “CNN has confirmed that the synopsis was included in the documents that were presented to Mr. Trump but cannot confirm if it was discussed in his meeting with the intelligence chiefs.
        The Trump transition team declined repeated requests for comment.”

        “Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Kellyanne Conway, a senior Trump adviser, dismissed the memos, as unverified and untrue.
        CNN has reviewed a 35-page compilation of the memos, from which the two-page synopsis was drawn. The memos have since been published by Buzzfeed.”

        “At this point, CNN is not reporting on details of the memos, as it has not independently corroborated the specific allegations.”

        Here a link to the entire article.

        • whatthe46

          “The claims of Russian kompromat on Mr Trump were “credible”, the CIA
          believed. That is why – according to the New York Times and Washington
          Post – these claims ended up on President Obama’s desk last week, a
          briefing document also given to Congressional leaders and to Mr Trump
          himself.”
          http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38589427
          here’s the info from the sources. that’s why CNN reported. again, it doesn’t stop you from believing anything the media says about anyone else when it can be proven a lie. this isn’t a lie. it’s creditable!!!

              no. the majority of America does agree with me. and that’s why tRump is having a damn fit because the more that comes out, the worse it gets. we knew he was in bed with russia and that he’s in deep debt to putin. i don’t care if you choose to look stupid that’s on you.

                where in my last comment did I mention Breitbart? I said CNN has become like Breitbart many comments ago. I’m used to Liberals moving the goals posts and deflecting to other subjects so no worries. Now you quote Media Matters…LOL…I was wondering when you would resort to MM…LOL…this is like watching children play.
                BTW, most of America disagrees with you…as a result Trump was elected.

            • whatthe46

              this isn’t speculation. and that is, tRump will NEVER get the respect of love from the people in this country or the entire world like President Obama:

                I don’t think Trump cares if Marxist or Fascist little snowflakes or Liberal/Progressives in America respect him.

                • whatthe46

                  even pUtin doesn’t respect him and you’re too stupid and blinded by ignorance that it’s remarkable that he don’t give a damn that he doesn’t care about America. and happy to burst your bubble, but, no on on his planet other than warped minds like tRump actually likes him. and guess what they are dictators to. and no one likes them. tRump is in fact hated around the globe.

                  • boss

                    • whatthe46

                      snowflakes turn into blizzards ass. at this time when Obama won, his approval ratings was 63.3% tRumps is 37%. no one gives a damn about him. and 37% is killing him. i tweet that too him all day just to rub it in. he’s a loser and so are you. no ONE likes the racist idiot.

          • Powder Hound boss

            It probably is fake…so what. Just like most of what he promised. It all good now after Trump reverses Obama’s executive orders…LOL. And Harry Reid set up a 51% majority that is coming back to bite all the little Libs.

            • The dumbest deplorables think USA is still led by a reelected non-American since January 20, 2009 via 53% (D) 365 – (R) 173Mc”Palin-47% and (D) 332 – (R) 206-Mittn’Ryan-47%,

        • whatthe46

          you didn’t find it “uncreditable” when wikiLEAKS published emails that were doctored and reported by the press did you? but, you have a problem with this. look up the term “hypocrite.” get familiar with it because that’s all you, tRump, the media that gave him millions in free press, and the rest of his voters are.

          • boss

            Where is there proof any emails were doctored? If the emails were false, don’t you think the people who wrote and sent the emails would be correcting the story. Not a word was said…crickets…so I assume they are all true.
            If you can show proof any emails were altered, lets see it.
            Real Proof, not some Left wing article from websites like MM.

        • It’s obvious to anyone paying attention to Donnies glowing Putin tributes, that Trump is being blackmailed by Russia’s Kremlin.

          32 Russian Trump spies deported from USA with sanctions on Donnies four Kremlin Generals were accepted punishment by Putin.

          • boss

            Why do you Progressives constantly deflect when you know you are losing an argument.

            • William
              • boss

                So you reply with more deflection…pathetic…

                • William

                  No deflection. It’s spot on. Cheeto-clown actually said. (OK Skippy, this is the part where you start yelling e-mails or Benghazi).

                  • boss

                    How many different deflections are you allowed on the thread…now you are talking about Benghazi?…again, pathetic.

                    • William

                      Um no dummy. Trump actually said that. I guess you learned a new word, “deflection”. Here, you don’t seem to be much for reading comprehension. You’re welcome. https://youtu.be/u1ND2VS8q08

                    • boss

                    • William

                      Trump said Cruz’s father was in on the assassination of JFK, because he read it in the National Enquirer. Get it? National Enquirer? Fake news? Holy sh*t you’re dense. I bet your shoes have L and R written on the top. After 4 times of telling you, a screen capture and a video, you still don’t understand. I draw the line at sock puppets.

                      Probably. It’s either a troll who craves the attention or someone who is so dense they cannot read an article or click on a link.

                    • boss

                      You are talking about things Trump says. I am talking about thing news agencies and journalists report to pulic as REAL news…big diference there…I do not care what type of nonsense you spew out of your mouth, nor do I care what kind of crap Trump says but when a MEDIA network releases FAKE news, WE have a problem.
                      You need to look in a mirror when talking about dense people…

                    • William

                      Right…when the National Enquire releases a story about the father of a U.S Senator accusing him of killing a U S president AND your orange molester reads it to the whole world, it’s fine. But when 17 intelligence agencies verify that Trump is cozy with the country that interfered with a U S election, it’s fake. Your Golden shower boy has a very limited time in the White House. Impeachment proceedings are likely. Enjoy your rapist while you can.

                    • boss

                      National Enquirer is not mainstream news…you know Im talking about CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS. Those are the main stations everyone pulls from.

                      BBC, CSPAN are not bad. Reuters and a few other sources are okay but National Enquirer is a sensational shock news outlet and Media Matters is a far-left news organisation. Breitbart is a far-right news organisation. I’m not talking about those types.
                      So please stop with the juvenile insults.

                    • William

                      so every mainstream media in the us that reports on Trumps crimes, perversions and treason is wrong. I see, but you missed the point again. I’m still pretty sure you are much to stupid to understand it, so I’ll try to explain it like you have the mentality of a 7 year old which is a bit of a stretch.
                      1. Trump and right wing idiots all mad because media report bad story on orange rapist.
                      2. right wing idiots completely forget and ignore that orange rapist suggested father of U S Senator killed Kennedy because check-out counter rag said so, and orange idiot believes it.
                      Thank you for playing is a Trumpanzee smarter than a can of creamed corn

    • whatthe46

      Obama not being an American is fake news, you bought into it. if tRump says it, it must be fact, when it’s against him, it’s fake news. you people need to get a life. tRump is a proven pathological liar. fox is the brain trust of tRump and has amounted to nothing more than a 24/7 sitcom. MI6 gathered information, McCain gave it to comey last year, tRump knew about it, and now it’s fake. please.

    • whatthe46

      i guess you believe he has no ties to Russia as well. I guess you believe that Russia didn’t hack the RNC/GOP as well. happy to burst your bubble, they did and tRump knew about that as well. Comey is tRumps savior and he announced that YES Russia hacked them. so, is everyone lying?

    • whatthe46

      oh and by the way, tRump thinks the Nat’l Enq. is a bonafied “new” organization. your one stop shop at your local supermarket for tabloid b.s. LOLOLOL. he even went as far as saying T. Cruz’ father aided in JFK’s death because it came from the Nat’l Enq. you people are so easy.

      • Powder Hound boss

        From CNN, hot off the press. CNN does not wait for confirmation. But you don’t need the truth to make dumb assumptions.

        “The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Mr. Trump.”

        • whatthe46

          “From CNN, hot off the press” source. and it didn’t stop tRump from his lies and calling them true and you and your ilk from believing them. how’s that pizzagate going for you? every time tRump opens his trap, it’s a lie. every time fox airs, they lie or refuse to report facts. we know this to be true. CNN is not reporting fake news just because you don’t like the message. it didn’t bother you that fox or other outlets reported on an email that had nothing to do with Hillary, but, this is about tRump and his russian ties and the fact that he, which he’s proven, can’t be trusted with our safeguards as he’s putin’s little bitch. now again, do you believe in the overwhelming evidence that tRump has ties to russia and pUtin that poses a danger to our country? if you won’t be honest about that, then your discussion with me is over.

              republicans investigated HRC for years, including 9 congressional committees all run by republicans, and they found nothing. No indictments, no evidence, nothing.

      My opinion is that anyone who equates CNN with Infowars or Breitbart is terminally clueless.

      • Powder Hound boss

        You are biased, off course you will defend CNN.
        What is most amazing is how you folks on the Left whine about Trump winning and America rejecting your Progressive ideologies that surrounded Obama. You know that if CA was not included, Trump won the popular vote by 3M…This tells us that CA is out of touch with America.
        Just like when Obama was elected, you have 4 years to figure out how to make money with the opposition in power. The free ride is over!

                    • Excellent! That clown is so needy. I think ‘boss has a crush on me, after you pummeled him with your famous right hook!

                    • Suzanne McFly

                      Lucky you lol.

                      You guys both sound like school children.
                      Agreed no more interaction.
                      Wishing you a good and success life

                      Not to worry. In a couple more years Texas will start voting Democrat and then the GOP can go off into the desert somewhere and try to rediscover its “soul.”

                    • boss

                      Again you lost…hahahaha…your hope and change brought you no hope and a change in government to a conservative ideology. Conservatives now control all three branches of government , 75% of all governors, 1000’s local political seats all because Americans have rejected communism brought to you by Barack Obama.
                      Remember when you people used to anyone who did not like Obama was racist?
                      We can assume that you don’t like Trump because he’s a successful businessman and there might be a touch of racism because he’s white.

                    • Willys41

                      Yeah, the “successful businessman” who bankrupts casinos. It doesn’t get any more pathetic than that.

                      But, to quote myself, since your reading skills appear to be lacking, “Not to worry. In a couple more years Texas will start voting Democrat
                      and then the GOP can go off into the desert somewhere and try to
                      rediscover its “soul.””

                    • boss

                      You love that hope and change…hope you can make it for the next 8 years under Republican control and a roll back of free money to the children…

                    • Lyndia

                      Do you actually think it will be 8 years? In four more years, WE ARE GOING TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK.

                    • boss

                      Who is we? You Socialist/Marxist kids had a nice 8 year run on us working Americans.
                      Its over…America stil has people who remember how great this country use to be. No that WE control the Federal Government (all three branches), 75% of Governors, most local seats (thanks to Obama), you could very well see a generation pass before you Takers once again have a puddle to play in.

                    • “Powder Hound Boss” switches it’s ID back to “Boss” of nobody. D’oh!

                    • boss

                      Actually I had Powder Hound for one day on a request. This what you Liberal Progressive snowflakes do when you have lost an argument…start whinning about things unrelated to the subject.
                      Now you know why Democrats lost so bad. Intelligence Factor of Democrats is at an all time low. Republican voters on average earn $10,000 more per year.
                      Clinton could not muster enough young voters, minorities, or women to win.
                      Enjoy the new unMarxist America we are taking back.

                    • StoneyCurtisll

                      I notice that also..

            • Lyndia

              What research?

              • boss

                What do you think? Do you research information?…or do you wait to here it on TV?

        • Lyndia

          Did you know that California, is part of the United States? How can you talk about not including them in the vote count? Are you really that stupid?

          • boss

            CA is a state in America, I grew up in the Bay Area. The majority of citizens of CA are more aligned with the craziness of Sweden in their ideology and out of touch with mainstream Americans…that is my point Lydia. I left CA in 94 because the business environment was oppressive and invasive along with an exodus of other companies. Afterwards, the State lowered taxes and regulations to keep people from leaving. But all the Progressives have once again taking control and elected Jerry Brown again.
            I search for ENR companies that want people to fill key positions. For years, The only people who will relocate to CA are those who once lived there or get paid enough to make it worth dealing with the craziness there.
            So CA does not get to control the way the rest of America lives anymore.

    “Urolagnia is sometimes associated with, or confused with, arousal from
    having a full bladder or a sexual attraction to someone else
    experiencing the discomfort or pain of a full bladder, possibly a
    sadomasochistic inclination.”
    “For some individuals the phenomenon may include a diaper fetish and/or
    arousal from infantilism.”

      thanks for that info now I know why my dog tries to hump my leg………

  • dewired4u

    For some reason this tune keeps running through my brain…..especially the last verse.

    “White Rabbit”

    One pill makes you larger

    And one pill makes you small

    And the ones that mother gives you

    Don’t do anything at all

    Go ask Alice

    When she’s ten feet tall

    And if you go chasing rabbits

    And you know you’re going to fall

    Tell ’em a hookah-smoking caterpillar

    Has given you the call

    Call Alice

    When she was just small

    When the men on the chessboard

    Get up and tell you where to go

    And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom

    And your mind is moving low

    Go ask Alice

    I think she’ll know

    When logic and proportion

    Have fallen sloppy dead

    And the White Knight is talking backwards

    And the Red Queen’s off with her head

    Remember what the dormouse said

    Feed your head

    Feed your head

    It seems to me that somebody, namely CNN should be filing a lawsuit against Trump for denying them their 1st amendment rights to a free press. The government can’t obstruct, deny or restrict the news media. It’s obvious Trump is covering something up.
