President Donald Trump on Saturday afternoon called out David Weigel of the Washington Post for posting a “phony photo of an empty arena” in Pensacola, Fla., Friday night.

As Twitchy reported earlier, CNN’s Brian Stelter made a special note that the network did not apologize for botching its “bombshell” story about an email from Wikileaks to Donald Trump, Jr. Weigel, however, apologized promptly and called his original post a “bad tweet.”

Weigel said he deleted the photo after The Daily Mail’s David Martosko told him he’d gotten it wrong. Here are Martosko’s tweets from the event giving a better idea of the crowd size.

Good on Weigel for deleting his tweet and apologizing, or just more #FakeNews from someone who should know better?
