Anytime Donald Trump feel cornered, his go-to strategy is to insist that the person telling the truth about him is a liar with some kind of political agenda, and any news about his corruption is just “fake news.” His favorite place to make wild claims about those who dare expose him is Fox & Friends, which he took to very quickly upon news of the criminal act he committed by removing White House documents, tearing them up, and even flushing down the toilet during his time in office.

Appearing on the show by telephone interview, Trump told Fox & Friends host Will Cain that The New York Times‘ Haberman knows nothing about him (she’s been covering him and has been since several years before he ran for president), that she made up the “Russia Russia Russia hoax” (new information says Robert Mueller absolutely considered filing charges against the president’s son and his long-time advisor and associate, Roger Stone. None of that deterred Trump or made him question whether anyone was going to buy his lies and excuses.
‘Yeah it’s fake news and she’s a fake writer. She got a Pulitzer Prize for Russia, Russia, Russia, and then they found out it was a hoax. And so did others. Frankly the ones that get Pulitzer Prizes they happen to work around you and around Pete. And I will tell you, it’s a disgrace. But, no, it’s a totally false story. She made it up. I don’t believe they have sources. Who is going to be a source for that anyway? Who would know that?’
Instead of simply saying “I would never do that,” Trump’s explanation is that Haberman is just a natural-born liar paid by Democratic operatives to write stories about Trump that he doesn’t like and “who would know?” if he had done what she accused him of.
