    I take it this would fall in this category of fake news.. But to see who got duped was priceless..

    Pelosi, Cummings, New York Times fall victim to fake Twitter account | Fox News


    That blue checkmark on verified Twitter accounts is there for a reason.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and The New York Times learned that lesson the hard way Tuesday when all three were fooled into quoting a fake Twitter account.

    The mixup arose after the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who left the White House on Monday night after revelations that he misled Vice President Pence about a December phone call Flynn had with a Russian official. Early Tuesday morning, the account @GenMikeFlynn seemingly shared the retired lieutenant general’s thoughts on his ouster.

    “While I accept full responsibility for my actions, I feel it is unfair that I have been made the sole scapegoat for what happened. But if a scapegoat is what’s needed for this administration to continue to take this great nation forward, I am proud to do my duty,” the account tweeted in a pair of messages.

    All the while he presented some "very fake facts".
    He will never learn. But good attempt at spin, blame it on somebody else for the wrong facts.

    Trump had a press conference had had some fun at it.. Even said he would give the MSM some headlines they would most likely use and everyone of them did.. You don't like Trump and I understand that as I do like him.. You knock him no matter what he does just the same as the MSM .. So now tell me who thinks for themselves???

    Your spinning again.
    No, I don't like him, but if you remember, it was a very long time ago I expressed my feelings about him. This isn't something new.
    As for thinking for himself ... would you blindly follow Trump's every statement as the truth ? Or do you need to now check each time he opens his mouth ?
    I understand, he doesn't write these notes, or do his own research ... but maybe he needs to fire some people that are making him look bad.
    Bottom line, he provided the wrong "facts", and then attempted to backpedal those statements, and finally blamed somebody else.

    He is obsessed with certain things,that I will give to you.
    He won the election and time to move on. True but the MSM keeps bring up the fact that Clinton won the Popular vote,so as long as they do that he will keep reminding them he won the electoral vote and that was the vote that counted.. But spinning?? I watched along with my wife the entire press conference yesterday,I thought it was more like Trump on the campaign trail.. I went to CNN afterwords and they were trashing Trump like they normally do.. MSNBC was the same.. So let me ask you this,besides the vote,what did he spin??

    How many times must he remind us he won ?
    He lost me somewhere after he said he inherited a big mess and the stock market was doing well ...
    Both true, however same as the last President. In other words, nothing new.

    As long as the MSM brings up the election results,he will continue to remind them he won the electoral vote.. Ball is in their court. Stop bringing it up and I would bet so will he.. He has his personality and he isn't gonna change.

    Go back and listen. He brought it up, not any of the reporters. Here is the link, all one hour and 18 minutes.
    You'll find Trump brought up the whole electoral vote issue, and his claim to largest electoral vote win since Reagan, at the 11:45 into his speech. Well before asking any reporters questions.
    Stop blaming others, it's how Trump will always be, insecure about everything.
