Forget the meme wars. Feigned obtuseness & hyper-literal fact checks are the most obnoxious trends in journalism https://t.co/BeVuXGiPLM

We’re at the point where we don’t know if this is real criticism of President Trump or if it’s a parody account. Could the NYT really be on Trump for rounding up from 37.4%?
Trump: "China's trade with NK increased by almost 40%."
NYT: "ACTUALLY it was 37.4%." https://t.co/5exeOpqGyw

Answer: YES IT CAN!
Maybe he’s just rounding up the number you cite in the next paragraph? https://t.co/2D3hOPhfwV pic.twitter.com/MdUp9MyrsW

the condescension in the "it is not clear where Trump got his 40% figure" is just hilarious https://t.co/trRYCtIcPj

And it’s not really rounding as Trump did say “almost”:
It's not even really rounding; he said "almost."

Maybe it really is the “failing” New York Times?
when the failing @nytimes fails, it fails gloriously.https://t.co/kcKZ7SrgXn

There are a billion things to criticize Trump about but they waste their time pretending that 37.4 can't be "almost 40".

And you wonder why everybody hates the media.

@nytimes has a problem calling 37.4% "almost 40%." HAHAHA
And they wonder why America hates the media. https://t.co/r8VgBZdsY2
