Sean Spicer once again annihilated the New York Times.
The NY Times apologized in the past to readers after printing numerous innacurate stories and getting every prediction wrong. But that didn’t stop them from printing another unsubstantiated and ridiculous story this week. This is what passes as journalism today:
Aides confer in the dark because they cannot figure out how to operate the light switches in the cabinet room. Visitors conclude their meetings and then wander around, testing doorknobs until finding one that leads to an exit. In a darkened, mostly empty West Wing, Mr. Trump’s provocative chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, finishes another 16-hour day planning new lines of attack.
Usually around 6:30 p.m., or sometimes later, Mr. Trump retires upstairs to the residence to recharge, vent and intermittently use Twitter. With his wife, Melania, and young son, Barron, staying in New York, he is almost always by himself, sometimes in the protective presence of his imposing longtime aide and former security chief, Keith Schiller. When Mr. Trump is not watching television in his bathrobe or on his phone reaching out to old campaign hands and advisers, he will sometimes set off to explore the unfamiliar surroundings of his new home.
The Times proves yet again they’ll print anything to make President Trump seem incompetent or immoral, or better yet, both.
From The Washington Times:
White House press secretary Sean Spicer criticized The Times for publishing an article that, he said, “was so riddled with inaccuracies and lies that they owe the president an apology.”
The story, bearing the online headline “Trump and Staff Rethink Tactics After Stumbles,” portrayed a lonely president and a West Wing in disarray. It said the president “spends his evenings alone sending tweets out into the social media universe, watching television in his bathrobe or walking around the White House, trying to learn the interiors of his new home.”
Mr. Spicer called the article “literally the epitome of fake news.”
“Start at the top,” he told reporters. “I don’t think the president owns a bathrobe. He definitely doesn’t wear one.”
Mr. Trump took to Twitter about the article, saying, “The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me. They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!”
The article also said Mr. Trump’s aides “confer in the dark because they cannot figure out how to operate the light switches in the Cabinet room.”
Mr. Spicer said it’s “not an accurate portrayal of what’s really happening.”
