Is this Nazi Germany? No. That's why I'm not taking questions from the Lugenpresse.
Is this Nazi Germany? No. That’s why I’m not taking questions from the Lugenpresse.

In a surprising turn of events, Donald Trump has decided he loves the media now, all except for CNN and Buzzfeed, which are failing and going out of business because nobody believes they are fake news, obviously. In his presser Wednesday, Trump first dismissed the documents alleging ties between his campaign and the Russian government as “fake news,” which of course now means “news I don’t like,” claimed that “Nazi Germany” would have done something like publishing unverified intelligence reports that were unflattering toward its leader (he may want to brush up on Nazi press policies), and decried Buzzfeed as a “failing pile of garbage.” He then took the opportunity to tell CNN reporter Jim Acosta he was not a real reporter because he is from the fake news network, so sickening he can’t even believe it:

Acosta attempted several times to ask a question, asking, “Since you are attacking us, can you give us a question?” Trump told him, “Not you, your organization is terrible!” and repeatedly told him to stop being rude by trying to ask questions at a press conference. Finally, Trump dismissed him altogether: “No, I’m not going to give you a question. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!”

Later, Acosta told his colleagues at CNN’s The Situation Room that Trump’s future White House press secretary Sean Spicer had threatened to eject Acosta from the press conference altogether.

Beverly Hills surgeon explains at home fix for crepey skin around the arms, legs, and stomach.

At one point during this news conference, in the interest of full disclosure…after I asked and I guess demanded that we had a question, Sean Spicer, the incoming press secretary did say to me if I were to do that again, I was going to be thrown out of this press conference.

So there you have it: The first official banning of a news organization from the Trump administration, before there is a Trump administration. It’s an excellent warning to the press to stop acting like it’s Nazi Germany. No word yet on whether the Trump Flying Monkey Brigade has yet come after Mr. Acosta’s family, but give them time. They’re just expressing their free speech to protect the Leader from all the lies out there.

    he may want to brush up on Nazi press policies

    DON’T GIVE HIM IDEAS.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    decried Buzzfeed as a “failing pile of garbage.”

    OK, I hope Buzzfeed’s IT people are ready for the influx of new readers they will get. Maybe they can consult with the people at Vanity Fair about how to handle that problem!

  • natoslug

    Stupid reporter. He should know that his job is to transcribe our dear leader’s screechings, not question him.

    • And make sure to transcribe all the cheering and applause going on at the “press conference”.

      • natoslug

        He paid* Jeb! good money for that applause. Not including it in the transcription would be a slap in the face of democracy.

        *Promised to pay at some indeterminate point in the future, maybe.

    Dear CNN. You helped create this asshole. Please help to bring him down.

    • onedollarjuana

      “No, I’m not going to give you a question. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!”

      Trump has a point.

    • Hellhathnofury Demme

      It’s their only shot at (partial) redemption.

  • Bitter Scribe

    It is quite impossible to imagine Obama describing, say, Fox News or Breitbart as a “pile of garbage” in public, even though they’ve been a thousand times more slanderous and malicious than any news outlet has ever been toward Trump.

    Civility, class and intelligence in a president. It was nice while it lasted, wasn’t it?

    • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

      Even if he didn’t like FOX News, Obama would call on them and let them ask questions.

      • Bitter Scribe

        Hell, he sat for interviews with Bill Fucking O’Reilly. THREE TIMES.

    • Creepoman

      I’d toss “democracy” into that pile of nice things we no longer get to have.

    • Celtic_Gnome

      I’m reminded of an interview with George W. Bush soon after the start of his second term, where he said that he was only obligated to be the President of the people of who voted for him.

      • Bitter Scribe

        Yes, it’s the old “50 percent plus one is all I need” paradigm, except he didn’t even get 50 percent.

  • dslindc

    All the other reporters in the room should have refused to continue in solidarity. He can’t be given these little victories.

    • Mr. Blobfish

      I wonder if their egos would allow that. I also wonder if they even listen to the questions other reporters ask.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      A walkout would have been fantastic. You’d still have Breitbart, WingNut Daily, and the National Enquirer, reporting to their brain-dead fans, but still…

      • Celtic_Gnome

        …and all those reporters would have been canned because the only thing their corporate masters care about is ratings.

    Acosta pressed on, “You are attacking our news organization, can you give us a chance to ask a question, sir?” Trump countered by telling him “don’t be rude.”

    “I’m not going to give you a question,” Trump responded. “I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!”

    “Be polite, you liar!”

  • HazooToo

    Petty, thin-skinned son of a bitch. Still, I wonder if CNN now regrets not shining a brighter spotlight on his antics during the campaign? Maybe they shouldn’t have spent so much time hovering over e-mails and Benghazi?

    • Historicat

      But they had such great insights from people like Corey Lewandoski …

    Is Sean Spicer related to Filbert Fluffer?

    Huh. I remember way back months ago when I would turn on CNN and Trump would be giving a half hour long phone interview to Chris Cuomo. See what thou has wrought, motherfuckers.

      Every fucking penny they paid to Corey Lewandowski was obviously money well spent.

    • The Wanderer

      Pity that Robin Leach is dead. He’d make a great press secretary / fluffer.

    • Rags

      Penny Saver libelz!

  • Can you blame Trump? How dare CNN put news reporting in front of his ego? And relying on facts? Trump has been informed that by Steve Bannon that a real news organization never does that.

  • Spotts1701, Resistance Pilot

    Okay, so CNN and the Washington Post are banned. Acosta will get to do his stand-ups from Lafayette Park.

    • BadKitty904

      National Enquirer and Stormfront still have full access, though, (alt-) right??

      • Unpresidented Ron

        They don’t need it. They get their instructions on what to say directly from the Politburo.

      After they have been pre-approved by the Press Secretary and the Chief of Staff, assuming they just don’t hand out scripts.

    Wait, so Jeff Zucker’s relentless cock-sucking didn’t earn him a whit of gratitude?!? Who could have guessed?

    • Celtic_Gnome

      You know how these guys feel about you as soon as you’re done sucking their cocks.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    Just watched the clip again. Donald is even worse than I thought he would be FFS.

    As much as I hated W, I never said this about him, but it sure as hell applies to Cheeto Jeebus…

    Good. Once these reporters lose “access” for soundbites, maybe they’ll try filling their time with some journalism instead.

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      They’d have to hire journalists. That hasn’t been on their menu for a long time.

    So I started the week wondering whether it will be the CIA or the KGB that assassinates Trump, but I think we have to consider death by a thousand newspaper cuts.

          prairie dogs amongst other rodents.

          most famous for being looked at.

  • I think perhaps one of the best things that could happen to the media were if Trump were to ban them from press conferences and deny them the access they trade favors for. Give all those political reporters a lot of free time and a grudge against the administration and force them to work for stories outside of the official channels.

    We might even see the rise of the adversarial press again.

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      Sounds like work and less time to meet after pressers for drinks.

    • Hellhathnofury Demme

      Yes, if the “political reporters” were to fuck off, some actual journalists might have a chance.

  • Bill D. Burger

        I know. On Maddow last night, Dan Rather said that his current unpopularity doesn’t matter if he is able to get the economy to improve and increase job opportunities. Funny things is that Obama did exactly that but he is still hated by the same racists who hated him when he was elected.

    • MynameisBlarney

      Have you told them how they’re going to the most hated buncha anti-American fucktards in history yet?

      • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

        Nah. They still believe that they’re right for voting for him. They’re annoying AF. Self righteous but stupid.

    • Vincent Ricola

      Nice times! I went into the office for awhile last week and my loudmouth Trump coworkers were still talking bad about something Hillary did in 1994. I don’t think they’ve gotten the “everyone hates his guts” memo yet.

      • Hellhathnofury Demme

        …or the “let go of the Hillary-Hate” memo.

    Apparently nobody informed Cheeto Satan that becoming POTUS means living in a white hot media spotlight 24/7/365. No wonder he’s so, um, pissed.

    • BadKitty904

      Just wait.

    • formerChild

      Actually, I’m pretty sure that’s the main reason he ran. He’s just too self-absorbed to realize what it would actually mean. His “good brain” isn’t so hot at multi-tasking.

    • BackDoorMan

      … actually, I think the reason he’s so pissed is because he can’t really control the media spotlight they way he wants, and has been used to doing his entire life. Remember, this is a guy so desperate for (positive) attention, he impersonated a press agent to talk to the media about how great he was – and how even Diana, Princess of Wales wanted to sleep with the “superstar” Donald J. Trump. This still cracks me up – especially since the reporter at the time not only knew about the “ruse” but went ahead and printed the ludicrous claims anyway. Look how we’ve progressed since those heady days!

  • Crystalclear12

    Something. . . something. . . Frankenstein’s monster.

  • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

    Also too! I wish the stupid media would figure out that the best way to fix this douche and his white supremacist supporters is to just not show up to his stupid press events. He only gets to act this way because he knows they’re hungry for coverage.

    • Bitter Scribe

      Um, he is going to be president in eight days. I don’t really think ignoring him is an option at this point.

      • BackDoorMan

        … I agree. Although it would be nice if “stop trying to normalize him” was an option. Also, too “stop making excuses for every abnormal thing he does”… and that goes for his propaganda mouthpieces as well, who should be banned from appearing on the media platforms Trump hates so much. I’d call that fair and balanced.

      Reminded me of Nixon going on TV to say he was giving over transcripts of the tapes that his secretary had transcribed, while pointing at a pile of empty notebooks on the desk next to him.

      • willi0000000

        to be fair (HA!) those notebooks did completely cover 18 minutes of those tapes.

  • UncleTravelingMatt

    Not to worry. CNN will come back with something akin to, “our story wasn’t meant as a criticism of Glorious Leader; we were simply trying to warn Americans of the perfidy of the Russians.” They’ll learn.

  • Unpresidented Ron

    So will the rest of the MSM see this as marching orders and kowtow to His Orangeness, or will they actually develop spines and go after him harder?

    • Picabo

      They will follow orders. Teen Vogue, however, has a spine.

    • Bitter Scribe

      The election’s over and they don’t have to show “balance” any more. Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I think they’re going to be rougher on him.

      • Sister Artemis

        I ask myself two things:

        Will they react by going harder because he insulted and pissed them off? Maybe.

        And, where are the ratings? In praising him while he’s in office doing whatever he’s going to do? Or by stirring up a shitstorm about EVERYTHING he does, and every shitty thing his administration does? I think that (fortunately) is where the money is.

      • BackDoorMan

        … okay, “you’re a cockeyed optimist”. But that’s fine… because I’d like to be one too. I mean, it’s not like they have anything to lose by saying “enough of this pretending that Trumplethinskin doesn’t present a clear and present danger to America and the world at large”. He never going to love you, Media, even when you french kiss his flabby orange ass at every opportunity.

    So, when I run for Congress, or the Presidency, in the next election (I haven’t decided which yet), I’m going to ban Faux News from my press conferences, because:
    1. They’re fascist propaganda, not a news organization.
    2. They’re run by a billionaire fascist who created an
    environment that felt the right thing was to bribe
    UK officials, and presumably US officials.
    3. Their big names – Joe Scarborough, who may have
    bribed an unqualified coroner to say his Congressional
    staffer’s death was not due to being pushed, and Bill,
    who committed violence against his family, is a bully,
    and, oh, yes, IMO should have been prosecuted for
    incitement to commit murder of Dr. Tiller of Kansas.

    Do I need more reasons? Oh, yes, how about unattributed, unpaid political advertising, aka “the Dean Scream”?

    • ResistanceFighterCaptainHowdy

      Does it have pissing?

      • ViveLaPeésistance

        No. It doesn’t even have potato peel pie.

        • Amalga

          But is a wonderful read!

        We are all Russian hookers now

    Not an administration? But they have a podium with a logo and everything! I know what this is. Wonket is doing Nazi Germany to rhe real victim, Mr. Trump.

  • Nasty Candy Apple

    All of the mainstream news organizations should do what they should have done six months ago: shut Trump out until he plays ball. A near-total media blackout until the only place he can trawl for news of himself is Breitbart.

    • Bongstar420

      trumpski got a free ride. He should get treated like the 3rd party candidates and be forced to pay top dollar for coverage.

      • Jukesgrrl

        He got an estimate $2 BILLION worth of free advertising from the MSM when he was running. They’re not going to dump him now. They are far more responsible for Trump in the White House than Russia is.

        • CatCafe de la Resistance

          Absolutely, no question about it. They are fully responsible. Them and the pieces of shit with the “they’re just the same” and “Oh, I just can’t stand her for some reason,” who SHOULD have known better, who had the mental capacity to know better, and still went with the misogyny and stayed home.

    • MeerkatsRMammals

      It would be nice, but I think they’re making WAY too much money with the shit show to stop now

    “The Micturian Candidate”—–Applause for Dok.

      Read a comment somewhere today that called him the Mandarin Candidate. I’m not sure if it was a misspelling or intentional, but it was an appropriate title for the orange shitgibbon himself.

    “Yes, it was real good.”

  • MeerkatsRMammals

    Look, I’m no fan of CNN, but they’re not “fake” news. Nut jobs like Info Wars & Bretibart are actual fake news. Pizzagate is believable, but it’s not believable that a known womanizer would hire hookers? This is sickening. More & more each day, I fear for our country. If this is how he’s gonna treat CNN (before the election), how’s he gonna treat the rest of the press after he’s sworn in?

    • BreakingDeadMen

      If the people in the room had a single ball or ovary between them, they would have refused to ask any further questions until he recognized their colleague from CNN.

      • MeerkatsRMammals

        Exactly! I feel the entire press should band together to stop this menace to society.

        • BreakingDeadMen

          It’s not like he is dispensing nuggets of truth or even giving any coherent information. Let the Daily Stormer and Fox and all the rest of the Nazi organs cover it. The less they focus on what he and Kellyanne say, the more they can write about reality.

        If they’d had the stones, they would have all gotten up and walked out right then. And not come back.

        • CatCafe de la Resistance

          Right? It isn’t going to get any better. He lives and dies by being in the public eye. He’d beg for them to come back. Any teacher or parent knows how to deal with bullying, bluster, and general bad behavior/tantrums. You NEVER give in to it. You ignore it and of course they come hurrying back. Jesus.

    • MAZS

      If I really thought that Trump had a strategy (or a thought), it might actually be genius to go after bland, beltway, conservative-lite CNN first because if his supporters can dismiss CNN as a purveyor of “fake news” one can only imagine how real news organizations will be treated. I can hardly wait to hear Chuck Todd’s and Wolf Blitzer’s hard takes on this. [BTW– Is Ed Henry still whining that Obama didn’t call on him often enough?]

      • mailman27

        Todd and Blitzer are presenting their bellies, make no mistake.

    • haroldpp

      It helps to give CNN some positive feed back. If they know it will HELP ratings to piss off Putin’s Puppet, maybe they will keep doing the journalism thing.

      I just called and told them to keep making DT mad by doing their jobs.

      CNN Washington 202-898-7900.

    • BackDoorMan

      … yeah, I call CNN a lot of things, but not “fake” news. “Piss poor” news perhaps, even “lackadaisical” news from a journalistic standpoint, but no – they do not make shit up like, say, Fux Noise.

  • I Am Helpy

    Trump’s right – it IS just like Nazi Germany, when whatever parts of the cowed press that still try to do their jobs become the Enemy. Who would have thought he’d possess that much insight?

  • JD Mulvey
    • BreakingDeadMen

      He steps up every now and again.

      • Tiny kaiju

        And his rare freak-outs are kind of fun.

    • Zyxomma

      I don’t know him. I don’t know any of the talking heads from FNC.

    • major_asshole

      Of the talking heads on Fox Nooz, Shep Smith is the one I can stand the most. Although I can only seriously watch him for maybe ten minutes at a time before I need to watch puppies.

      Everyone else on that disaster of a network, I hate-watch to pump up my blood pressure.

  • pgjack

    If Trump thinks this is bad he should be reminded that Hillary Clinton has had to listen to three plus decades of false accusations. And Trump himself spent several years tossing false accusations at President Obama, a man who far exceeds Trump in honesty, integrity, intelligence and class. The media would do better to just report the news and ignore Trump’s responses, tweets and rants. Let him blather in a vacuum for a while. He hates nothing worse than not hearing the sound of his own voice.

    • CatCafe de la Resistance

      He’s a thin skinned human manifestation of butthurt.

  • Phoenixdoglover

    I did not watch the “press conference”. Could someone direct me to the video excerpt where Trump smashes a folding chair over the head of a reporter, and the crowd cheers?

    • haroldpp

      Creepy fact, Putin’s Puppet brought people who cheered at things he said.

  • Serai 1

    If the press wanted to get back at Trump, all they’d have to do at the next press conference is ask questions about nothing but the pee incident. One after another, all of them wanting to know about the hookers. And not let up, ever. Give him a taste of his own fucking medicine.

    • Jukesgrrl

      I agree, but it will never happen. The majority of them will fall in line in the name of wanting “access.” Why they want access to a bunch of people who lie, I don’t understand. I think it’s my job to turn off TV news and get my information from the internet.

      • Serai 1

        Yeah, I’d be careful about that. You’re not any more likely to find purely unbiased news reportage out here than on TV or in the papers.

      • Incoming (AKA Large) Ham

        What if he gave a press conference and no one showed up?

  • whitroth

    Doc! Wonkette and the Wonketteers! It just hit me: we just won!

    Trump invalidly invoked Nazi Germany!

    I hereby invoke Godwin’s Rule, and since Trump brought it up, HE LOST!

    • CatCafe de la Resistance

      My sister works for the Anti-Defamation League (yeah, THEY’VE been busy lately), and one of their bugaboos is people who invoke the Nazis for minor bad behavior, i.e., Grammar Nazi, etc. (it dimishes their monstrousness). They privately will sometimes refer to themselves as “the Nazi Nazis.”

  • Incoming (AKA Large) Ham

    I just read the transcript. Trump refers to himself in the third person at least twice. Jeebus.

    How did I forget this one last night? Maybe cause I’m not really a fan. But:

  • ken_kukec

    “… claimed that “Nazi Germany” would have done something like publishing unverified intelligence reports that were unflattering toward its leader …”

    Wherein Donald Trump demonstrates that Nazi Germany is among the myriad topics he knows fuck-all about. (Or did he “hear” that Der Stürmer published fake news about Hitler paying hookers to pee on each other in Hindenburg’s suite at the Moscow Ritz?)

    Trump has yet to make a single coherent historical or literary allusion since he rode down that gilded escalator into our presidential politics. Hell, he’s yet to say anything that demonstrates he’s ever read a book, including the ones he’s credited with “writing.”

  • haroldpp

    If CNN figures it will HELP ratings to piss off Putin’s Puppet, maybe they will keep doing the journalism thing.

    But they need to hear that people support that sort of thing. Because I’m betting right now, lots of DT supporters are calling and giving plenty of hate.

    I just called and told them to keep making DT mad by doing their jobs.

    CNN Washington 202-898-7900.

  • WIDTAP

    Damn. So close on winning my bet. If only CNN had a little more balls.

    • Old Man Yells at Cloud

      I can’t believe that I am not being sarcastic by saying for that you want the hard hitting journalists at Teen Vogue.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    But, it was CNN. The premier cable purveyor of both sides do it. You’d think Republicans would eat that shit up with a spoon.

    But not a winespoon at a Trump hotel restaurant, because you don’t want to know what that looks like.
