President Trump has been making the rounds through Asia in recent weeks, visiting friends and allies in the region and building up a rapport. While he was gone, the Trump Hate Train didn’t slow down a bit, as the left-wing media used his absence as an opportunity to go after him.
Since he was conducting important State business, he wasn’t quite as free to respond to the media’s attacks, as it wouldn’t have been very prudent to fight with your own nation’s press while meeting heads of state in their countries. But the good news is that Trump’s back in the White House, and he didn’t waste a second before tearing into the news media’s coverage of him while he was away.
As reported at the New York Post, after 12-days overseas, Trump went on the offensive against CNN, tweeting out that while he was away, he was forced to watch their network, and that it reminded him how “bad, and FAKE, it is. Loser!”
“While in the Philippines I was forced to watch @CNN, which I have not done in months, and again realized how bad, and FAKE, it is. Loser!,” the president wrote on Wednesday.
While bashing CNN he praised “Fox and Friends” and promoted the morning show by saying its hosts would be talking about his “successful” trip abroad.
“@foxandfriends will be showing much of our successful trip to Asia, and the friendships & benefits that will endure for years to come!,” Trump posted on Twitter.
While on the trip, the president visited Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. He talked about trade and pressing security issues in the region, specifically the North Korean menace that continues to launch ballistic missiles over our allies.
He also told the reporters accompanying him on Air Force One that despite many of their reports claiming he spends most of his time watching television in the White House, he doesn’t, because he’s busy with work.
“Believe it or not, even when I’m in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television,” Trump said last Saturday. “People that don’t know me, they like to say I watch television — people with fake sources. You know, fake reporters, fake sources.”
It never gets old seeing Trump go after the left-wing press. For too long, conservatives have had to put up with limp-wristed, cowardly Republican representatives, who’ll do anything, including stabbing their base in the back, to keep on the media’s “good side.” That’s why it’s so refreshing to watch Trump dish it back at the propagandists. Hopefully, we’ll be treated to some more Trump rants in the coming days, because when he’s active on Twitter, it usually means he’s in his best form.
