President Donald Trump has finally done what no other politician in history has had the fortitude to do — expose the mainstream, lying media for what they really are (most of the time). It’s all narrative-driven, hit pieces and completely garbage stories that serve nobody other than the liberals who run the media companies.
Trump captured his supporters on a whole new level when he began to paint networks like CNN as “fake news,” a moniker that will likely follow that company for the rest of its existence. But he didn’t come up with that name for no good reason… CNN (and others) have on multiple occasions ran with stories quoting “anonymous sources” that always lead to hit-pieces on Trump and his administration.
The problem is that they’re all false. Which is why they’re fake.
Trump just predicted what will happen to the fake news media when he’s out of office in 7 years, and you know they’re hating this reality…
President Donald Trump taunted media outlets on Tuesday, predicting their ratings would crash after he left office.
“I enjoy watching,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “In 7 years, when I am no longer in office, their ratings will dry up and they will be gone!”
Trump commented on the news after reacting to several reports on Twitter throughout the morning.
“The Fake News Media is going CRAZY!” he marveled. “They are totally unhinged and in many ways, after witnessing first hand the damage they do to so many innocent and decent people.”

Trump commented on “fake news” despite New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger urging him in a weekend meeting to stop using the term to describe the press.
“I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous,” said Sulzberger in a statement.
