#45 says "FAKE news" is not fake, its just "negative news" about him! His recent tweet part of it said: ”Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake)." Yes, more have discussed #45's threat to pulling media credentials, effectively censoring the media, but this is currently more a threat. It is his conjoining of of 2 previously disparate ("negative" and "Fake") words as synonyms that expose his real thoughts: #45 simply hates bad press, not that it is actually wrong. Not my words, it is #45's. (VOX and CNN articles) Oh, sure, all Presidents get bad press and they also hate it, and sometimes do verbally retaliate, but I do not recall any President vilifying and demanding the media be censored and/or calming its "fake" when it could simply be imprecise (well, Nixon maybe). It is one thing to accuse the media to not reporting issue correctly, not getting facts right, or evening being unfair or excessively negative (and all perfectly acceptable to me), but IMHO calling something fake simply because you do not like what they say is a very childish temper tantrum response.
