President-Elect Donald Trump addressed the fake news dropped by Buzzfeed and re-reported as fact by CNN in his first press conference today.
President-Elect Trump slammed the now debunked fake news report alleging Russia has placed him in a financially compromising position over alleged erotic antics in Moscow. “Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE.’ Very unfair!” Trump tweeted.
The completely unverified claims were NOT detailed to Trump in an intelligence report as CNN claimed, as per The Hill.
The president-elect posted a stream of tweets to share his thoughts on the shocking lack of journalism ethics and lack of professionalism by the CIA leak of the fake news.
He did this just a few hours before the press conference where he announced that all the profits from his foreign hotels, golf courses, etc. would be donated to the United States Treasury for the duration of his presidency, which is what real integrity looks like.
“Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA – NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!” Donald Trump also tweeted.
Russian officials also quickly addressed the fake news story being circulated by Buzzfeed and CNN. Moscow leaders deemed the report an “absolute fabrication.”
“The Kremlin has no compromising dossier on Mr. Trump, such information is not consistent with reality and is nothing but an absolute fantasy,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov. “There are people who foment this hysteria, who move heaven and earth to keep up this ‘witch hunt.'”
The cable news network proved once again that liberal bias is far more of a priority than accurately informing the American people about news which impacts our lives. During Trump’s press conference, a reporter from the network kept interrupting and demanding to be able to ask a question.
“No, I’m not going to give you a question,” President-Elect Trump added. “You’re fake news.” To this, the crowd in the room erupted in loud cheers and clapping.
CNN may have finally burnt its bridge with Donald Trump. It’s going to be a long four years for the cable news network – that’s what you get when your brand of “gotcha” reporting turns around to bite you instead.
