Trump angrily tweets ‘FAKE NEWS!!’ in response to CNN’s intel bombshell

Whoever had one month in the all caps Trump tweet pool, you won. The president-elect showed all the presidential class he could muster when he popped off this all-caps response to the CNN bombshell about Russians having intel on the Donald.

He also retweeted this tweet from his lawyer Michael Cohen:

One of the claims made in the report was that he went to Prague and met with Russians in order to orchestrate their attack on Hillary.

But, as some pointed out:

LOL! I’ve been to Prague, but I forgot if they stamp your passport or not.

Then he retweeted this post bashing Buzzfeed for their lack of journalistic integrity on “Lifezette” the Trump propaganda website run by Laura Ingraham:

Gosh, it’s almost reminds me of a orange-faced vulgarian making his own unsubstantiated smears against his political opponents during the primary. Who was that again?

Michael Cohen also spoke to Mic News and denied every accusation:

“Somebody is having a lot of fun at your expense,” Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, laughingly told Mic in a phone interview Tuesday night.

“It’s so ridiculous on so many levels. Clearly the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they might have.”

Cohen issued the emphatic blanket denial after CNN reported the Russian government is claiming to have gathered “compromising personal and financial information” about the incoming president.

“It’s absolutely silly,” Cohen said of the dossier.

“At some point in time, this fake news nonsense needs to stop. We are talking about the president-elect of the United States of America, and if we want to portray an image of strength and intelligence throughout the world, we need to start acting intelligent,” he said.

NOW they have high standards for insults and unsubstantiated accusations. See how that works?
