Trump: ‘Fake media’ is ‘badly slanted’


President Trump spent the Monday after Easter slamming a favorite target: the media.

Every story written by “the fake media” is “badly slanted,” Trump tweeted. 

{mosads}“The Fake Media (not Real Media) has gotten even worse since the election. Every story is badly slanted. We have to hold them to the truth!” the president wrote on Twitter.

Trump earlier in the morning hit the media over how it had covered a recent House special election in Kansas, where Republican Rob Estes defeated Democrat James Thompson by 7 percentage points. The previous incumbent, now-CIA Director Mike Pompeo, had won his most recent race in the conservative-leaning district by more than 30 points. 

But Trump said the media had given the race too much attention when it appeared it was close and not enough after Estes pulled out the win.

“The recent Kansas election (Congress) was a really big media event, until the Republicans won. Now they play the same game with Georgia-BAD!” Trump tweeted.

Trump didn’t just go after the media. He also criticized the Obama administration’s foreign policy, tweeting a quote from “Fox & Friends” critical of the Obama years.

“‘The first 90 days of my presidency has exposed the total failure of the last eight years of foreign policy!’ So true. @foxandfriends,” Trump said.

The president also provided Twitter users with a reading suggestion.

“A great book for your reading enjoyment: ‘REASONS TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS’ by Michael J. Knowles,” he wrote.

The book, which is by a writer for the conservative website The Daily Wire, includes 266 blank pages, according to The Washington Post.
