Recently, our President tweeted that Bernie Sanders called the media fake news while on CNN and was immediately cut off.
Like so many things President Trump says, this was a boldfaced lie. Senator Sanders was on CNN and he did in fact say fake news, but this is how things actually unfolded:
Senator Sanders was asked if it was a problem that President Trump said he was unaware that there was a report that his National Security Adviser Michael Flynn kept the fact he had discussed Russian sanctions with The Russian Ambassador prior to Trump taking office.
Senator Sanders responded, “Well I don’t know, maybe he was watching CNN fake news, what do you think?”
To which Erin Burnett responded, “You don’t buy it?”
Sanders the responded, “That was a joke!”
Bernett said, “I know it was a joke. I’m saying you don’t buy what he said, obviously?”
At that point the audio did cut out so they went to a commercial break.
They returned from the break and the interview continued for nine more minutes.
Our Republican President is a compulsive and shameless liar.
