The God-Emperor Ascendant informs the media of their proper place in the new hierarchy, which is considerably closer to the kennels than the Cherry Blossom Throne:
Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.
“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added.
A second source confirmed the fireworks.
“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.
Well, they can hardly deny it, can they? It’s about time someone in a position of power started calling them out on their deceitful propaganda. I understand his contempt for them; I learn new things about myself nearly every time I am mentioned in the media, particularly in articles written by people who have never spoken to me, never met me, and obviously, have never read any of my books.
They’re lucky it was Donald Trump and not Donald Trump Jr. or it would have been a literal firing squad.
