President Trump Set The Internet On Fire: He Announced The Winners Of The ‘Fake News Awards’ 


The president has kept his promise of the “Fake News Awards” – it came in the form of a tweet that led to the GOP’s website – take a look:

The link spread so quickly that the GOP site even went down.

No. 1 was The New York Times’s Paul Krugman, who was given the top spot for claiming the economy would never recover after the election. He might be regretting this as the stock market is at an all-time high.

No. 2 was ABC News’s Brian Ross, who CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report, as the explanation for his spot on the list read.

No. 3 was CNN – picked for claiming the president and Donald Jr. were able to access sensitive material from WikiLeaks during last year’s election.

No. 4 was Time Magazine. At the beginning of last year, Time reporter Zeke Miller reported that the president removed of a bust of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from the White House, which was not true. He did apologize for his mistake, but it still created such a big controversy during the first month of Trump being in office.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders debunked the story by tweeting a photo of the bust:

No. 5 was The Washington Post’s David Weigel – he misrepresented the attendance of a Trump rally in Florida:

CNN was listed once, at No. 6, because of their report about Trump’s trip to Japan, about dumping a box of fish food in a pond and overfeeding the fish. At the end, it turned out that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe dumped the food first.

No. 7 was also CNN, because of a report regarding former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci meeting with a Russian. The story became a huge controversy and even led to employees at CNN leaving. Plus, CNN added new guidelines for Russia-related content.

No. 8 was Newsweek, about their report regarding the first lady of Poland, Agata Kornhauser-Duda (not) shake the president’s hand:

CNN was No. 9 as well – “They reported that James Comey would dispute Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation,” is what the description for the award read.

No. 10 on the list is The New York Times, about their report about the president hidding a climate report.

The last one to receive a “fake news” award was anyone that promotes the idea of the collusion with Russia being existant.
