In a performance worthy of The Apprentice (apparently), Trump pointed out their many, many, many mistakes in covering his campaign.
From the New York Post:
“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.
A second source confirmed the fireworks.
“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.
“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.”The meeting was off-the-record.
In the campaign, the media nearly universally campaigned against him. Taking orders from Hilary Rodham Clinton -- WikiLeaks proved that -- the press called him Hitler, and his supporters Klansmen.
I support a free press.
When do we get one?
Right now we have a bunch of social justice warriors trying to turn America into a communist state. They hate capitalism -- except of course when it comes to their wallets.
Now we get to hear these jokers talk for the next week about how unfair getting dressed down was.
Boo hoo hoo.
They can dish it out, but they sure cannot take it.
I feel so much better for writing my book on their comeuppance in the primaries -- and I relish writing the sequel.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
