President Trump on Buzzfeed Debacle: It’s Going to Take a Long Time for Mainstream Media to Restore Its Credibility – Hurts Me to See That (VIDEO)

BuzzFeed got nuked by Mueller’s office on Friday night after the liberal media platform floated a fake news Trump-Cohen-Moscow report late Thursday night.

BuzzFeed dropped some late night ‘Trump-Russia’ fake news on Thursday after the media and Democrats’ rough day dealing with ‘Air Pelosi.’

The latest fake news story from BuzzFeed had the Democrats and their stenographers in the mainstream media riled up and calling for Trump’s head.

BuzzFeed reported late Thursday night that according to law enforcement sources, Trump directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the proposed Trump Tower in Moscow.

BuzzFeed originally reported that Michael Cohen told Mueller’s team that President Trump personally instructed him to lie to Congress:

On Friday evening, a spokesperson for the special counsel disputed BuzzFeed’s junk report, calling it “inaccurate.”

On Friday morning President Trump responded to the latest fake news sensation by the liberal media and DC hacks.

President Trump said it “hurts him” to see the mainstream media at such a low point of trustworthiness.

President Trump: I thought the Buzzfeed piece and equally as bad the coverage of the Buzzfeed story, it was a totally phony story, and I appreciate the Special Counsel coming out with a statement last night. I think it was very appropriate that they did so. I very much appreciate that. I think that the Buzzfeed piece as a disgrace to our country. It was a disgrace to journalism. And I think also that the coverage by the mainstream media was disgraceful. And I think it’s going to take a long time for the mainstream media to recover its credibility. It’s lost tremendous credibility. And believe me, that hurts me when I see that… It hurts me to say it but mainstream media has truly lost its credibility.
