President Trump’s comments at his rally in Wisconsin last night weren’t nearly enough to make the likes of CNN journo Jim Acosta happy, but his tweet this morning will probably only worsen their criticism:
A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News. It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!

Among those angered by Trump’s latest comment was former CIA Director John Brennan, who was one of the people a suspicious package was addressed to (though it was delivered to the Time-Warner building in Manhattan). Brennan seems to already know who’s responsible for the packages:
Stop blaming others. Look in the mirror. Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful. Clean up your act….try to act Presidential. The American people deserve much better. BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence. https://t.co/cS5qNiuU7o

You may recall that recently the Trump administration rescinded Brennan’s security clearance.
Does anyone even believe this clown was ever a non-partisan bureaucrat acting in the best interest of America? https://t.co/rMCZrX1wwP

No, there’s no such thing as a “Deep State,” why do you ask? *Eye roll*
The irony – and hypocrisy – of @johnBreannan accusing anyone of lying is off the charts.

Mirrors are in short supply for many these days.
