Trump Scorches the Media in First Press Conference Since Election

In his first press conference since winning the election, President-elect Donald Trump scorched the liberal media as he answered a wide variety of questions.

During the press conference, Trump called Buzzfeed—which published unverified information that Russia had compromising information on Trump—“a failing pile of garbage,” and got into a shouting match with CNN’s Jim Acosta. Trump called the network “fake news,” showing that he wasn’t about to let the liberal media control his message, and signaling a new era in presidential press relations that will certainly give the media fits for years to come.
