President Trump took to Twitter early on Monday morning to rip the “not real media,” calling it “fake” and writing, “Every story is badly slanted. We have to hold them to the truth!”
Trump has slammed the media on a regular basis, often referring to the industry as the “opposition party.” It’s unclear which stories prompted the president’s ire.
However, Trump did take the time to praise Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends” shortly before he accused the media of getting “worse” since Election Day.
The president also promoted a book on Monday morning, writing, “A great book for your reading enjoyment: “REASONS TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS” by Michael J. Knowles.”
The Amazon description calls the book, “The most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date” and “a political treatise sure to stand the test of time.”
On Sunday, Trump’s early morning Twitter messages mocked protesters demanding the release of his tax returns.
“Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies,” Trump tweeted a day after tens of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and dozens of other cities to demand he release his taxes. “The election is over!”
