Every story written by “the fake media” is “badly slanted,” Trump tweeted.
“The Fake Media (not Real Media) has gotten even worse since the election. Every story is badly slanted. We have to hold them to the truth!” the president posted.
It appears that the president was spurred to hit the media by coverage of a recent House special election in Kansas, where Republican Rob Estes defeated Democrat James Thompson by 7 percentage points.
Trump hit out at media hypocrisy, declaring that too much attention was given to it when it appeared it was close, but after Estes won, reports disappeared.
“The recent Kansas election (Congress) was a really big media event, until the Republicans won. Now they play the same game with Georgia-BAD!” Trump tweeted.
Reporters were surprised last week when Trump referred to some of them as “very honorable people” during a press event.
Trump also retweeted a Drudge Report notification regarding a poll showing a rise in his approval ratings.
The President also recommended “reading” the book “Reasons To Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide,” which is mostly made up of blank pages.
