If there are two things that are certain, it’s Donald Trump’s hatred of Jeff Bezos, as well as any fact-checking service that does their job accurately. Bezos is the subject of many of Trump’s Twitter rants, and Bezos just so happens to be the owner of Washington Post. So what would get under Trump’s skin more than anything? A Fact-check from WaPo.
Trump tweeted this attack on Bezos’ company earlier this week:
The Washington Post is a Fact Checker only for the Democrats. For the Republicans, and for your all time favorite President, it is a Fake Fact Checker!

Now, an actual fact-checker who works at The Washington Post has responded to the president’s hateful jab at the media giant:
Glenn Kessler had this to say on Twitter about the president’s attack:
“Reminder: Trump cites the @washingtonpost Fact Checker when we give Pinocchios to Democrats.”
Trump to Laura Ingraham on Nov. 2, 2017: "Even a certain newspaper that I don't like very much came out today and they gave Schumer four… four Pinocchios, and they said because he was not telling the truth, when it came to the middle class, because he said it's for the rich."

The responses to Kessler’s tweets were about what you’d expect. Check out the best ones below via screenshot:
