Just ask the Toddler-in-Chief if he would like some cheese with his whine ! The scrutiny of the press comes with the territory buddy !

So if trump is getting his information from the media and the media is full of fake news..............?

Might explain some of his decision making.

Only a fool would trust the corporate MSM.

Why is this a paradox? Is Trump supposed to ignore the media because he sees them as an enemy?

No military commander ignores the enemy military. No business ignores its competitors. No coach or manager of a sports team ignores what the rival team is doing.

If an army, business, or team is your enemy or your competitor, you don't ignore it. You watch it like a hawk!

Please. This implied idea here that Trump is somehow acting hypocritically or in a contradictory fashion is absurd.

I agree with yankinhokkaido (from another yank in hokkaido). This AP piece was just another MSM hit piece. So much for 'news' reporting.

Was sort of interesting that the old guard/jurassic media covered the WikiLeaks "Vault 7" CIA hacks, but sort of glossed over the Podesta/Weiner child sex trafficking emails and tried to turn it into "PizzaGate"

It's not interesting at all that a made-up conspiracy theory with no evidence didn't get covered as anything other than a made-up conspiracy theory with no evidence.

Because Trump, as POTUS, is supposed to have access to the most powerful intelligence gathering apparatus on the planet, but he repeatedly throws Twitter tantrums based on the reports of far-right fringe conspiracy sites while criticizing everything that reports negatively on him as fake news. The toddler-in-chief isn't just a partisan hack, isn't just a gullible partisan hack, he's a hypocritical gullible partisan hack.

So Trump is basically being influenced by the pedos and other sex offenders hiding in the dark in 4chan and r/the_donald? This is fairly common knowledge, but comical none the less
