President Donald Trump told an overflowing crowd in Pennsylvania that the media “deserves a very, very big, fat failing grade” for their “dishonest” coverage of his administration today, and especially for their work during the past election.
As the nation’s top political reporters and their Hollywood friends meet in Washington D.C. at their annual self-congratulatory dinner, Trump went to a rally for regular Americans in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, instead of hobnobbing with the rich and famous as so many past presidents have done.
“As you may know, there’s another big gathering taking place tonight in Washington D.C. Did you hear about it?” Trump said as his audience booed those elites. “A large group of Hollywood actors (crowd boos again) and Washington media (more boos) are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now. They are gathered together for the White House Correspondent’s Dinner — without the president!”
“Media outlets like CNN and MSNBC are fake news, fake news,” Trump told his enthralled audience.
