On Tuesday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ordered the White House press corps to watch a video from conservative provocateur James O’Keefe, “whether it’s accurate or not.” The video was reported to show a CNN health team producer, John Bonifield, criticizing CNN’s treatment of the Trump-Russia story. Bonifield was taped without his knowledge. She took the opportunity to promote O’Keefe’s work.

“I think we have gone to a place where if the media can’t be trusted to report the news, then that’s a dangerous place for America. And I think if that’s the place where certain outlets are going, particularly for the purpose of spiking ratings, and if that’s coming directly from the top, then I think that’s even more scary, and certainly more disgraceful,” Sanders stated, which struck more than one reporter as ironic, given that James O’Keefe has repeatedly circulated actual fake news. In addition, Sanders was apparently promoting his work without knowing whether or not it was accurate.

That was too much for reporter Brian J. Karem, a correspondent for Playboy Magazine, who interrupted her and said, “Come on, you’re inflaming everybody right here, right now, with those words. This administration has done that as well. Why in the name of heaven — any one of us are replaceable, and any one of us, if we don’t get it right, the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read us.

You have been elected to serve for four years at least. There is no option other than that. We’re here to ask you questions. You’re here to provide the answers. And what you just did is inflammatory to people all over the country who look at it and say, “See, once again, the president is right and everybody else out here is fake media.” And everybody out here is only trying to do their job.”

Sanders then said, “I think if anything has been inflamed, it’s the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media.”

It’s unclear at this time if Sanders was referring to James O’Keefe, who repeatedly doctors his videos and is literally dishonest.

Popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп went on Twitter tirade this morning, because it’s Wednesday, and attacked media sources over a New York Times story that noted Трамп doesn’t understand much about Health care.

“The failing @nytimes writes false story after false story about me. They don’t even call to verify the facts of a story. A Fake News Joke!,” he tweeted. “Some of the Fake News Media likes to say that I am not totally engaged in healthcare. Wrong, I know the subject well & want victory for U.S.”

The New York Times reported that when reporters asked Senate Majority Leader and human turtle Mitch McConnell, whether Трамп understood the details around the health care negotiations, McConnell’s head retreated into his suit and he smiled blandly in response.

So, this morning, CNN is running an op-ed from a correspondent that essentially restates what the New York Times already reported. And the story is just another remind that Трамп doesn’t understand what he’s doing, and Трамп attacks the press over it.

In other news, CNN will report on a story first reported by the New York Times, from a source from the Associated Press, that water is wet.

Трамп will later go on Twitter and call the breaking, “Water is Wet,” story fake news. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will then later demand reporters watch a video about, “Dry Water,” from James O’Keefe.

Popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп has hired an army of lawyers to help deal with the investigation into his lies about and ties with the regime of Vladimir Putin.

Reports say that the lawyers feel a little out of their depth, since they aren’t sure who they can simply settle with. Attorneys for Трамп say that the President is willing to write a check for $10 million or more dollars with SOMEONE to just settle this lawsuit, like he does with every lawsuit.

The attorneys for Трамп are currently looking to hire a ‘Трамп Translator’ to help him understand why lying about Russia is different than lying about Трамп University or those women he sexually assaulted over the years.
