Trump Booed at Davos After Tirade About 'Mean, Vicious, Fake' Media

Trump Booed at Davos After Tirade About 'Mean, Vicious, Fake' Media

Jake Johnson, staff writer

Shortly following a relatively tempered speech (by his standards) at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Friday, President Donald Trump veered from the script during a brief question-and-answer session, launching into a tirade against the "vicious" and "fake" press—a rant for which he was promptly booed by some attendees.

US$5 to the first one to throw a shoe. Double for a direct hit.

Yeah, right, trump’s attempted firing early-on of Special Council Mueller, just reported/exposed by WAPO and the NYT is called “fake news” by the fake prez…trump’s constant blathering about “fake news” that isn’t, and is repeatedly proven not, displays his ignorance and stupidity - similar to the boy who cried “wolf!” who was never believed again…until the shite hit the fan - what a tool…

In the meantime, back in the States, the heroic press mostly continue to kiss his ass. All the while he abuses and calls them names. Some kind of sick masochist shit.

As long as the majority of the tv and print media is owned by corporate interests, that will not change.

“Fake news” is simply licence to his imbecile followers to ignore anything bad about him. If it’s good, the media got it right, if it’s bad, they’re ‘fake media’. Hitler and his henchmen as well as Stalin called it the Luegenpresse. (lying press). Great role models…

Trump as always was talking to his base. Millions of Americans believe the press is a liberal conspiracy and agree with Trump. The people at the Davos meeting must be dumbfounded on how Trump ever go elected. One clue is fake news posts on Facebook and fake news tweets on Twitter by Russians and Americans. If you want to see fake news look in social media, not the press.

Well-said. I would just like to add that he is a douche-nozzle of titanic proportions. But we know this.

Trump is following Hitler’s playbook, this is obvious, and terrifying. He’s not just to be regarded as some stupid oaf, as he is dangerous to the nth degree.

And to those calling him a mere puppet? That is a dangerous dismissal of the power that Trump himself holds.

Yea, this isn’t Sesame Street. He’s not the Cookie Monster or Oscar the Grouch. Anyone who goes to the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center should be able to see that there is a strong white nationalist movement in this country and that among the 17 candidates in the Republican primary Trump was the only one who reflected their views. It took awhile for them to really trust him but eventually they did. For a long time for some weird reason Trump has imagined himself running for president. Rather than acting like a politician in the primary he just acted like himself which just happened to be the type of person the white nationalist wanted. A strong male authoritarian figure who did not hide his racism.

But, unfortunately, his base believes everything that he says. Consequently, they neither accept or believe truth any more. He is magnifying the suspicion and paranoia that already controls their thinking, and directs their actions. The World watches in fear and disbelief, as an already dangerous and powerful nation rapidly becomes unhinged.

They troll us. They bait us. They are experts. They are “master baiters”.

Don’t think Stain ever used the phrase.

Perhaps Mr Trump found out he’s a small fish in the big fish tank of the ultra-wealthy at the Switzerland meetings. So he launched an attack on the same media that put him in office. Trouble is what he calls ‘fake news’ misses the point completely of what’s really ‘fake’.
