Fake News Icon Blasts Trump

The king of fake news, best known for making up a report in an attempt to take down George W. Bush has gone on the attack against President Trump.

According to The Daily Wire:

Dan Rather was once the anchor of the evening CBS News broadcast. He got the job in 1981, filling the very large shoes left by the avuncular Walter Cronkite.

He did everything to embiggen himself, but in the end, he crashed and burned for a heavy partisanship that blinded him.

In a nutshell, here's what happened: Trying to derail George W. Bush's presidency and his re-election bid -- and searching for a Watergate-sized blockbuster -- Rather aired a completely false story about Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard. He was fired and left journalism in disgrace.


So it is hilarious that The King of Fake News is now calling out President Trump for complaining about fake news.

  Rather was hilariously called out for his hypocrisy:
  This is just another example of the mainstream media acting like they are the moral compass for America. Dan Rather may not be the best one to send this message.
