Trump Defends Social Media Use in New Slams Against ‘Fake & Fraudulent News Media’

Evidently, the “FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA” really got under President Trump‘s skin today.

As the president heads back to Washington to deliver a speech in honor of veterans tonight, he decided to send out a couple of tweets where he defended his social media habits while swiping at the press.

Trump ripped the media in quite the tweetstorm earlier today, and he insinuated that Greta Van Susteren was fired from MSNBC because she wasn’t part of the network’s “Trump hate” programming.

Trump’s Twitter habits are facing increased scrutiny due to his recent comments about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Beyond his personal insults against the Morning Joe co-hosts, Trump has also sparked a debate about whether he or the White House tried to blackmail the two with a negative article in the National Enquirer.

Trump’s tweets are integral to the ongoing feud, which has prompted new discussion about his unfiltered social media presences
