President Trump spent early Tuesday morning tweeting his grievances against the media.
He targeted The New York Times, referring to the outlet as the enemy of the people and saying the publication will “have to get down on their knees [and] beg for forgiveness” from him, inaccurately claiming the paper apologized to him in 2016 for its coverage during the election.
He attacked New York Times opinion columnist Paul Krugman as “stupid,” accusing the economist of writing “false and highly inaccurate” things about him — without specifying what he objected to.
The president also accused the mainstream media of ignoring how well the economy is doing during his presidency.
Trump did offer praise to one corner of the media — to Fox News, the cable news network he promotes almost daily on his own Twitter feed — before resuming the attacks.
Teeing off on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” he called co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski “angry,” “dumb,” “sick,” and “psycho.”
The president ended by mocking CNN anchor Chris Cuomo as being a “massive failure.”
When Trump finished the diatribe, he returned to live-tweeting Fox News.
