Trump Calls BuzzFeed Reporter ‘True Garbage with No Credibility’

In case you missed it last week, BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins published an long-form piece titled “36 Hours On The Fake Campaign Trail With Donald Trump.” Not surprisingly, Donald Trump was not too pleased with how it came out. He denounced the profile as “dishonest and unfair” through a spokesperson and even fired an aide who had suggested he give Coppins access. Tuesday afternoon, Trump took to Twitter to express his personal feelings about the whole thing.

Trump first linked to one of the few pieces to criticize BuzzFeed’s treatment of him:

He then thanked The American Spectator writer who wrote that rebuttal, slandering BuzzFeed and Coppins in the process.

Though Trump didn’t do Coppins the favor of using his Twitter handle in his attack, the BuzzFeed reporter still responded in quick fashion, subtly mocking Trump’s “subtweets”:

Trump did, however, try to get Piers Morgan involved for some reason. So far, the CNN host has resisted the urge to take the bait, but if he does respond to The Donald, we will make sure to update this post accordingly.
