Hold Him to the Truth

CJ-Moki here. Here's a tweet that that President Trump made this morning:
The tweet in question (archive here) features Trump calling for "The Fake Media (not Real Media)" to be "[held] to the truth!"

Reading Trump's Twitter page shows that he regularly retweets the Drudge Report and Fox Twitter accounts, so we can assume that he considers them to be "Real Media".

As for what Trump considers to be "Fake Media", he lists five notable news sources as being "The FAKE NEWS media" in a tweet (archive here) from 17 February 2017:
In addition, Trump notoriously told a CNN journalist "You are fake news" at a press conference on 11 January 2017 (embedded below).

When Trump said that "We have to hold them to the truth!", he probably means that the New York Times, NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN, among other news sources, should all be forced to tell his idea of reality.

CJ-Moki, signing off. Let's hold Trump to the truth.

  1. Holding Trump to the truth reminds me of Don Quixote's efforts. Feels good but useless.

    1. So you're saying that Trump's ability to understand the truth is beyond saving?

    2. That is, an ability that he may have never had in the first place, if this interview from the Washington Post says anything:
