A reporter for the Washington Post tried to make Trump look stupid this morning but in the end ended up with egg on his face.

I guarantee you if this had been 2010, Rogin would have checked his facts before tweeting something like this about Obama. Because Obama almost always got the benefit of the doubt from the leftist press. But not Trump…
