Trump Slams BuzzFeed As "Failing Pile Of Garbage", Tells CNN "You Are Fake News"

Tyler Durden's picture

In an epic (mutual) trolling between president-elect Trump on one hand and BuzzFeed and CNN, on the other, the two media organizations which issued yesterday's unsubstantiated report about Russia having compromising information on the president-elect, Trump first addressed the question of why he referred to Nazi Germany, saying it is "disgraceful" that intelligence communities would allow the release of any information. "That's something Nazi Germany would have done and did do," he says.

He then unleashed on Buzzfeed which alone published the 35-page memo behind the Russian allegations, saying "Buzzfeed which is a failing pile of garbage... will suffer the consequences

And then, in an even more stunning episode, Trump slammed CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who he also called out during the presser over their report on a two-page synopsis they claim was presented to Trump.

With Trump looking to call on other reporters, Jim Acosta yelled out, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?”

“Not you,” Trump said. “Your organization is terrible!”

Acosta pressed on, “You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?” Trump countered by telling him “don’t be rude.” 

“I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump responded. “Don't be rude. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!” Trump responded, before calling on a reporter from Breitbart.


A snubbed Jim Acosta then tweeted the following: "Fortunately ABC's Cecilia Vega asked my question about whether any Trump associates contacted Russians. Trump said no."


Trump also had some "kind words" for the BBC:

These exchanges followed an initial statement by Trump spokesman Sean Spicer who said that "for all the talk lately about 'fake news,' this political witch hunt by some in the frankly shameful & disgraceful.... Highly irresponsible for a left-wing blog... to drop highly salacious and flat out false information on the Internet."

Following this, we expect the war between Trump and the media in general, or at least CNN in particular, to reach biblical proportions.

The Media really screwed the pooch on this one.  They really should just pack up and leave town.  It's over, the fat lady sang, the seats are empty, concessions closed.

Tarred and feathered, and walked out of town. One way, non-stop flight to Tel Aviv.

Malicious falsehood or injurious falsehood is a tort. It is a lie that was uttered with malice, that is, the utterer knew it was false or would cause damage or harm. Malicious falsehood is a false statement made maliciously that causes damage to the claimant. This is so disgusting of these people to do to our President.

This was a beautiful moment...CNN and Buzzfeed have been two of the loudest critics of fake news and just got busted cmmitting an atrocious act of faux journalism.  Trump not only called them out, he dressed them down in front of the world and told them there would be consequences.

Sell your CNN shares!!

Trump acted adroitly to stick them with the Nazi label.  Need lots of internet memes about CNN logo/swastika mashups, etc.

BuzzFeed (inadvertently) did Trump a favor by publishing the details. They were quickly demolished. If that had not happened, the the allegations could have dragged on and on.

An annex to the intel report on alleged Russian hacking which claims Moscow has incriminating info on Donald Trump is full of holes - but that doesn't mean congress can't use it to impeach him

...the can but only if they want to awaken the sleeping giants.

Why would a Republican Congress impeach Donald Trump while he is exposing the lies of the left wing MSM? Are you adroit or only stupid?

because of the neocon/israel lobby/aipac/adl/mossad/likud transnational transgenerational criminal conspiracy to control the u.s. government by allowing only assets of israel to attain national political office.  once more:

Reminded of a line in a film from way back by an emperor's namesake:

"I have moments."

(First to name that film gets a gold star).

Total fucking ownage.

America has to thank to the Anonymous community for helping figth the takeover by left fascism aka communism

it isn't left fascisim, it is zionism.  this is about israel which has generally controlled u.s. foreign policy since jfk's murder and absolutely dictated events since 9-11.

do john mccain and lindsay graham look like lefties to you?  did dick cheney?  donald rumsfeld?

do catch a clue.

Wow, that is obscure.  Napoleon Wilson, from Assault on Precinct 13 - a little-known movie by the illustrious director John Carpenter! (his second movie, released in 1976, two years before his uber-classic show-stopper, "HALLOWEEN")

You win the gold star, mate :)

The "I wanted vanilla twist" scene still haunts me...was probably a bit young when I watched it, back in the day.

It was "I have my moments". The "my" wasn't part of the deal. ;-)

Great movie though, as all of the Die Hard flicks were.

Glenn Greenwald, no friend of Trump, did an excellent longer piece in The Intercept: The Deep State Goes to War with President-Elect, Using Unverified Claims, as Democrats Cheer.

Even those who don't like Trump can see that Democrats and their media mouthpieces are embarrassing themselves pathetically.


Never One Roach's picture

I saw that piece and also thought it is excellent.

SO, what we all need to know is...

during this fake/ alleged golden shower, is Trump pitching or catching?

Enquiring minds and all that.


In previous, NON fake & unreported at the time by CNN news...  Bill clinton stuck a cigar in monica's taint then puffed it and said "tastes good".

SO much projection by the leftard media.

What I want to know is whether or not he slept in the piss saturated bed after he got his jollies.

I've slept with a 3 year old grandchild, and I know that sleeping on a pissed on mattress is not a good night's sleep.

jeff montanye's picture

only cnn (or, possibly, you) would try that fake news since it is internally inconsistent.  can't stick a cigar (or a dick) in a taint.

(as was explained to me in seventh grade: because 't ain't her pussy, 't ain't her ass.)

Trump Slams BuzzFeed As "Failing Pile Of Garbage", Tells CNN "You Are Fake News"

I believe this confirms unequivocally, The president elect reads Zero Hedge ...

Withdrawn Sanction's picture

CNN:  "Mr. President-elect may we ask a question?"

DJT:  "You just did...and the answer's no.  Helen, your question?"

...after repeated hectoring by CNN

DJT:  "If you continue behaving like an 8 year old, Im going to have your press credentials confiscated."

All things considered, he was quite restrained in the face of these sanctimonious petulant prevaricators compared to what he could have said.

Unfortunately it was a fake account.  But I expect it will still be done.

Good one CNN, Buzzfeed! Make America grate again.

This is the media's own fault, and I LOVE IT!  He has absolutely no reason to be friendly or cordial with them.   They rail against him every day, declared themselves enemy combatants, but they have never EVER been in a battle themselves.   They are used to gov't officials timidly seeking their approval, but when you know that no matter what you do, you will never get it, you learn you have nothing to lose by using their own cameras against them, and Trump is doing that masterfully.  It has been said the media should keep politicians in check, but the reality has become the media has given the state and liberals more power, and has never been held accountable themselves.   They now know that if they screw up, they will be blasted for it on the international floor.  FINALLY!
