One Minute After Using An Anonymous Source, Trump Says Don’t Read Reports Using Anonymous Sources

Just one minute after Donald Trump, while attacking the press, said to ignore reports that use ‘anonymous sources,’ the former reality show star used an anonymous source while quoting Tucker Carlson. And of course, again, Trump called the press the ‘enemy of the people’ during his morning meltdown. Also, in 2012, Trump claimed “an extremely credible source” had called his office to tell him former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate was “a fraud.”

“Anonymous Sources are really starting to BURN the media.” @FoxNews The fact is that many anonymous sources don’t even exist,” Trump tweeted this morning. “They are fiction made up by the Fake News reporters. Look at the lie that Fake CNN is now in. They got caught red handed! Enemy of the People!”

Then, just one minute after that, Trump said that reports that use anonymous sources should be ignored.

“When you see “anonymous source,” stop reading the story, it is fiction!” President Exclamation Mark tweeted.

Twitter users took notice.

FYI: An anonymous source called Deep Throat exposed the Watergate scandal.
