Major Right-Wing Newspaper Makes An Absolute Idiot Of Trump For Calling Them ‘Fake News’ (VIDEO)

Earlier today, Donald Trump decided to accuse the not-at-all liberal Wall Street Journal of fabricating a quote, even going so far as to call them “fake news,” because that’s the epithet he uses whenever the media makes him look bad:

WSJ, however, decided to defend themselves and delivered a quick, harsh blow to Donald “Fake News” Trumphole over it. While Trump is busy gloating that they recorded the meeting so that the media couldn’t lie, the WSJ was releasing said audio, which proves to be a very stark reminder of just how much the man lies:

You would think that, by now, Trump would figure out that the press is going to defend itself whenever he lies about their reporting. WSJ just made a complete idiot out of him for his lies. The best thing for him to do would be to apologize to them publicly for smearing their name. He won’t, though, because that’s just not how Donald “I Lie About Everything But Everyone Really Lies About Me” Trump operates.

Some of his supporters agree that the recording demonstrates that he said, “I’d probably have,” rather than “I probably have.” Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted the recording last night, saying it proved WSJ had misquoted him, and claimed the White House demanded a correction very quickly. However, The Wall Street Journal is not an outlet that would publicly tweet the recording in self-defense without a thoroughly reviewing it first. Plus, Sanders is known for being very comfortable with lying to the entire press about things Trump has said and done.

Furthermore, WSJ has a transcript taken by an outside service confirming their reporting. Trump made these comments in response to a question about whether he thought Kim Jong Un was trying to drive a wedge between him and President Moon Jai-in of South Korea. But Trump doesn’t want to look like he feels anything other than hatred for North Korea, since his followers want him to bomb them back to the time of the dinosaurs. Too bad for him.
