President Trump is not a fan of the mainstream media. He doesn’t like CNN, The New York Times, or NBC — especially NBC.
So when he was taking questions from the media on Wednesday before a trip to Kentucky to attend an event for America’s veterans, he teed off an obnoxious grandstanding reporter from the network that still employs serial honor thief Brian Williams.
“Journalist” Peter Alexander asked the president about his mocking of Joe Biden for getting the sites of two mass shootings wrong when he, too, made a mistake. “You said that the mass shooting happened in Toledo, when it happened in Dayton,” Alexander said — weeks after the slip of the tongue.
“This guy is the most biased reporter,” Trump blared. “I made a lot of money for NBC with the The Apprentice and I used to like them, but they are the most biased. Peter, you should be able to ask a question, same question, in a better way. You are so obviously biased and that’s why the public has no confidence in the media.”
And while he was on the subject, Trump ripped The Times, too.
“I think the New York Times now has totally lost credibility,” the president said. “They’ve given up on the Russian collusion delusion. And now what they’re doing, they’re trying the racist deal. And that’s not gonna work because I am the least racist person ever to serve in office. OK? I am the least racist person. But the New York Times is trying everything they can. It is a totally dishonest newspaper. It’s a paper that really has lost tremendous credibility.”
Trump last week took to Twitter to slap the once-great newspaper.
“The New York Times will be out of business soon after I leave office, hopefully in 6 years. They have Zero credibility and are losing a fortune, even now, especially after their massive unfunded liability. I’m fairly certain they’ll endorse me just to keep it all going!” he wrote.
