President Trump blasted BuzzFeed News late Friday night on Twitter — saying it was a “very sad day for journalism” — after the special counsel disputed the media outlet’s report on his alleged real estate deal with the Russians.
“Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredited ‘Dossier,’ paid for by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats (as opposition research), on which the entire Russian probe is based!” Trump tweeted. “A very sad day for journalism, but a great day for our Country!”
The president went on to say that “fake news is truly the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!” — and he also re-tweeted a pair of posts made by Geraldo Rivera, which ridiculed BuzzFeed as well.
“This is just the most egregious example of the rampant unfairness that has tainted this partisan witch-hunt from the beginning,” said the Fox correspondent. “The utter hatred for @realDonaldTrump has empowered a legion of back stabbers wielding flamboyant falsehoods to undermine @POTUS.”
Rivera added, “At what point in fairness-after 2 years do Americans of good will say enough already? If the #SpecialCounsel had collusion don’t you think we would have heard it by now? This is history’s longest running smear job. Free @realDonaldTrump Reflect. Negotiate. Open the government.”
