Trump Announces the ‘Winners’ of the 2017 Fake News Awards

Ever since the President announced a few weeks ago that he would be releasing an “awards list” of most fake news from 2017, we’ve all been waiting on pins and needles to see what egregious media reports would be chosen.

There were many to choose from but it seemed that the President and his team decided to stick with the ones that most blatantly displayed the media’s bias against the administration and the GOP.

The list kicked off with an early flub from the most foolish Nobel Prize Winner of our generation, Paul Krugman, and it only grew more shameful as it went along.

And the Winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards are

1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.

4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.

5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

 

 

6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.

9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.


10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.

11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

Despite having his fun with the media, the President also wanted to make it clear that there were still many reporters that he had nothing but respect for.

What do you think about the President’s list?
