Trump Wants Weigel Fired Over Inaccurate Tweet

Washington Post reporter apologizes for 'bad tweet' after Trump calls him out

Attendance at the Pensacola rally became an issue after Trump called out Weigel, the Washington Post reporter, for his tweet, and the dispute surfaced again at the White House press briefing on Monday afternoon. Weigel was responding to Trump's claim that the arena had been "packed to the rafters".

Trump claimed in his tweet that the stories have been incorrect on goal. He also claimed Weigel "put out a phony photo of an empty arena hours before I arrived". "FAKE NEWS, he should be fired", Trump tweeted on Saturday night, despite the fact that Weigel had already corrected the tweet before the president's follow-up post.

But Trump's tweet prompted Weigel to delete his "bad tweet on my personal account" and apologize, saying the president was "very fair to call me out".

Trump immediately hit back, quickly getting an apology out of Weigel - and demanded that the Washington Post fire him to boot.

How did the media react?

Limbaugh had called for then-President Barack Obama to fail, and when the radio host was hospitalized with chest pains, Weigel reportedly wrote, "I hope he fails".

"It was a bad tweet on my personal account, not a story for Washington Post", the reporter, Dave Weigel, tweeted Saturday.

But that photo was not taken while Trump was speaking. "FAKE NEWS, he should be fired".

"Dave Weigel relied on an inaccurate image in tweeting about President Trump's rally in Pensacola", Kelly insisted, according to the Washington Post.

Even if the photo had been a legitimate representation of the crowd-size, directly jeering the president in this way is still outrageous behavior from anyone who describes himself as a legitimate journalist.

Another leftist anti-Trump publication to the north, the New York Times, tried to turn the tables on Trump over the Pensacola incident, insisting that it was another swipe by the president to "discredit" the mainstream media. Instead, they all make excuses for the inexcusable and attack the president as though he does not have his own free speech rights, as though the elite media is exempt from criticism.

CNN corrected a report this week that Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr. and others in the Trump organization received an email offering a decryption key and website addressed for hacked WikiLeaks documents - after the outlet reported the date of the email as September 14th rather than the 4th. "You should have been apologizing for the last two years", Trump said to laughter and cheers at a rally in Florida. The "error" was exposed and ABC suspended Ross for four weeks without pay.

"Fake News CNN made a vicious and purposeful mistake yesterday", Trump tweeted on Saturday morning before tweeting about Weigel's photo.

"CNN'S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS", Trump added in another tweet.

The reporter's latest misadventure drew the full wrath of the president, who has been notably touchy about crowd sizes at his events ever since the inauguration.
