If The New York Times cast aside all of its objectivity, commitment to accuracy, and fawned all over Donald Trump with sickly sweet gushing he just might like one of the pillars of the fourth estate. However, since the newspaper does not support dictator-like actions, it continues to roll along with its first-rate general reporting and investigative reporting. Without the media, America could be Russia.
Trump called the paper “fake news” and “a dead paper:”
‘The New York Times is an embarrassment to journalism. They were a dead paper before I went into politics, and they will be a dead paper after I leave, which will be in 5 years. Fake News is the Enemy of the people!’
One of the people who responded to Trump’s tweet, Timothy Ferris, nailed it by slyly inserting the word cockwomble into his post. Does its definition remind us of anyone? Check it out:
‘Cockwomble: A person, usually male, prone to making outrageously stupid statements and/or inappropriate behavior while generally having a very high opinion of their own wisdom and importance.’
Twitter world exploded after Trump attacked the news. Take a look at some of our favorite responses below:
