Trump Attacks The ‘Failing’ New York Times, But The Internet Sets Him Straight About Who’s ‘Failing’ (TWEETS)

Donald Trump kicked off his Sunday morning by once again attacking the New York Times, one of the many “fake news” organizations he has apparently banned from his press briefings along with CNN, Politico, the LA Times, and Buzzfeed — all organizations he called “the enemy of the American people” in a hastily deleted (yet widely noticed) tweet — while allowing Breitbart and others to attend.

Commenting on an ad the New York Times is running — one with a message that the truth is important — The Donald said that the “bad” ad is an effort to “save its failing reputation,” apparently missing the point that the Times (winner of 119 Pulitzer Prizes) is neither failing nor does it need advertising to “save” itself no matter what he throws at the news organization.

Naturally, Twitter was right there to set him straight on the validity of his attack::

In December, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that banning media access is what a “dictatorship” does.

“Conservative, liberal or otherwise,” he said during an interview while explaining away Trump banning media from events, “that’s what makes a democracy a democracy versus a dictatorship. I think there is a vastly different model when it comes to government and what should be expected, and that’s on both sides.”

“I think we have a respect for the press when it comes to the government. That is something you can’t ban an entity from,” Spicer said. But now the Trump administration is banning media from government functions. . Senior White House policy adviser Stephen Miller made it clear that Trump’s actions are absolute and “will not be questioned” after judges killed The Donald’s Muslim ban. That paints a pretty clear picture of how the Trump administration views themselves — as dictators.

It is up to the American people to stop them.
