CNN: Trump Held ‘Fake News Conference’

Thursday on CNN’s “New Day,”  when asked about President Donald  Trump’s press conference from Poland, network White House correspondent Jim Acosta accused Trump of holding a “fake news conference” for going off on CNN as fake news during the event.

Acosta said, “It was not a surprise that the first question he would take from an American reporter and from the friendly news media, friendly reporter who teed up CNN. For the president to go off on CNN about fake news, made this spectacle feel like a fake news conference. This was not an attempt by the president to seek out a question from somebody who was going to challenge him on the issues.”

He continued, “A couple of things we want to point out. The president once again said that Barack Obama did nothing from August to November about Russian meddling. That is simply fake news. President Obama talked to Vladimir Putin at a G20 Summit in September about all of this, to say otherwise is fake news. Barack Obama went farther, by the way, in that meeting with Vladimir Putin, then President Trump is promising to do himself. He’s not even promising to bring up election meddling in his bilateral with Vladimir Putin. So, for the president to say that Barack Obama did nothing, he is, at this point, promising to do less than nothing on that front.”

He added, “The other thing that was fake news coming from President Trump was when he said, ‘I keep hearing it’s 17 intelligence agencies that say Russia meddled in the election. I think it’s only three or four.’ Where does that number come from? My suspicion is if we go to the administration and ask for this question, I’m not sure we’re going to get an answer. If we get an answer, it will probably be off-camera.”

        It would take me six months to tell you what the New York Justice system system has done to My Grandfathers eatate How they avoid the rule of law on everything. How NY attorney are the only ones that can report crimes and they refuse , fraud larceny and child abuse are all ignored New York is in Anarchy while the city Burns the Mayor was at the G20 supporting Radicals 311 failed, Ca takes years to resolve, DOB never goes after violations, No Zoning laws . My family neighbors is on the verge of burning the cross wearing white hoods and Taking Richard Stanton and New York Under Construction out to be Burned . You can call councilmen You can hire attorneys have an expensive trust but nothing matters . Best advise is to get out. If a criminal is in you mothers house for 30 days you can’t get him out average time of eviction 7 years. The criminal trespasser gets free electric, free gas, the property owner pays for the water. He can Demolish the property at will. I believe I could sue Trump for falling on his elevator yet never been on the property and win half of the building!!!

      CNN = Clown News Network. If we get money from it , we air it, whether it’s true or not, we are fake news and those that watch us are idiots. The only time we invoke the name of Trump is if it’s fake news, Our supporters, of which there are fewer and fewer,
      love the fake news on Trump. It feeds their hatred and they are oh so easy to fool. As
      Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool some of the people all of the time” and those people are our audience, God bless the stupid, uninformed and easy to fool. If it weren’t for them we’d have no audience at all.

    • William Konrad

      Like I said ” “You can fool some of the people all of the time”” Abe Lincoln. The word truth has been removed from CNNs list of words, they have replaced it with fake news.

    • mustangsallyann

      Where have you been?? CNN’s admitted to lying and have fired at least 8 (scapegoat’s) in the last month. They deserved it for lying even if superior’s condoned and encouraged it. One of their producers is on tape admitting it as well. And I have no agenda, as an independent, I didn’t vote for Trump or Hillary. That said, after watching all of the liberal lies, bullying, violence and rhetoric, I’m willing to give Trump my support now. Lib’s must be hiding some really big stuff to act like they have since the election and I don’t support liar’s and little game player’s.

  • William Konrad

    “He’s not even promising to bring up election meddling in his bilateral with Vladimir Putin.” He doesn’t have to promise, he brought the issue up without promising to do so.

  • donl

    CNN is in the “Cover-Up” business, they cover-up their LIES with new LIES.

  • Robert Brumley

    CNN hates the truth. That’s why they despise Trumps comment, or anybody else that calls them out on their lies.

  • randolph.poole

    Acosta is one of the prominent turds in the toilet bowl, otherwise known as CNN! They all should be flushed!

  • don76550

    Acosta is a lying embarrassment that does damage to CNN’s credibility

  • Arnold Kezsbom

    POTUS should exclude CNN from White House press pool and not allow Acosta or any CNN staff on Air Force 1. Fake News CNN has no place with real news reporters!

  • Arnold Kezsbom

    CNN has sour grapes when they’ve been caught colluding with HRC. Liars and cheats doubling down on false Trump stories just keep digging a bigger hole for themselves. They established they position of fake news and ratings prove it. Only a handful of Americans even bother to listen to horrible commentators, false reports from reporters and blatant attacks on POTUS ordered by Zucker. Fake News is too kind. Corrupt News is more fitting!
