    No one will ever accuse Donald of being civil or statesmanlike. That said, Buzzfeed was wrong to publish the dossier as "news".

    Judge for yourself.

    Buzzfeed writes:
    A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.​

    Linkie to Dossier

    The good stuff is highlighted in yellow.

    But how is this "fake"? Did the Russians not peddle this dossier even if the stuff in the dossier is propaganda? Buzzfeed says "unverified" and "alleged" which is more than Donald ever did in his birther diatribes.

    That's fine.

    Trump's response was similarly appropriate.

    Similarly to what? An emotionally impaired child? Shouting at people and calling them names isn't really appropriate for a grown-up.

    I'll be blunt about this, Trumps right.... BuzzFeed is fake news and garbage. They are so far left that you lose track of them in the distance.

    On YouTube Buzz Feed has a few channels. All of which are based on non-chrsitian views. Sex is a common topic in the videos. Including LGBT sex like "Gay man sees womans privates for first time and touches them!". Really?!? Thats crazy. Is it any surprise a super leftist news channel hates Trump. And I never really consider them news. Alot of it is loosely based "news". More so news that is biased towards what they are into. Like evolution, LGBT...etc.

    I mean obviously Trump has a issue with his mouth and its not right. But so do alot of his haters. Like Meryl Streep. Calling him a bully. Despite the fact she is one and also thinks highly of herself. To many leftists are hypocrites.

    Props to President Elect Trump for keeping his cool and for keeping the situation under control despite the uncalled-for rudeness of the CNN reporter. I hope that we will see similar responses from Trump should other reporters ever attempt to hijack his press conferences.

    What I don't understand is why people are overwhelmingly allowed to attack Trump for EVERY LITTLE THING he does or says, but if he says ANYTHING back to them, he's a horrible person.

    For example, the gold star family during the Democratic Convention. Trump didn't NOTHING to that family. He wasn't responsible for their son dying. They get up on stage and trash Trump, but he can't respond. If he does, he's 'attacking a gold star family'.

    The left is always so eager to attach terms. He speaks to a woman who trashes him, oh he's sexist. He talks about illegal immigration, he's a racist. He's not allowed to speak on ANY subject without backlash from the left. And even when he does something good, like saving the Carrier jobs, they do their best to rub as much dirt on that as possible.

    I caught this live and I loved it.
    There is talk of revoking his press credentials.

    With all the phony outrage on the Left about 'fake news', the outright propaganda published as fact or even 'news' is hypocrisy in the textbook sense.

    One recalls this happened during the Bush (43) Administration when CBS news under the byline of Dan Rather published the fraudulent letters denouncing President Bush's Air Guard career.

    Now that President Elect Trump is past the certainly immoral and reasonably illegal attempts to bribe the Electoral College to elect Secretary Clinton, we find all manner of fraudulent 'news' stories released in an attempt to smear and demean the next President of the United States.

    Standard Operating Procedure.

    Poor snowflake. I am sure he finds comfort in his safe place on Twitter.

    Wrong movie. That phrase is from The Pacifier, not Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi. And ewoks do not have horns.

    This sort of conduct isn't right. Trump shouldn't be getting in feuds with random news outlets, no matter how poorly sourced. The media should just give up on bashing Trump for a moment and give him a chance to do some things before they criticize him more.

    That said, I'm glad he's responding the way he is. I am so sick and tired of the left bashing every right-leaning person and finding dirt from nowhere, meanwhile being as kind to left-leaning people as possible. I'm tried of the liberal media bias which was so nakedly obvious during the election. I don't care how much of Trump's shenanigans are true--I just want someone to make the media fair and objective.

    Yes, he is very effective at making a fool of himself on Twitter.

    Sorry, I missed the correlation between a meme with an ewok, with a quote from the Pacifier, and you referring to Trump.

    Welcome back from wherever you were the last eight years. Sadly politics have only gotten worse since Bush and the sides just attack each other for everything

    Sometimes, even the top hunters in the jungle find it necessary to relearn the lesson about not messing with the bull.

    Because he won. Since he won they need to attack him every second of the day so they feel better about Hillary not winning. I'm sure they will continue to do so every day until the next election. Its what sore losers do.

    If I recall a few days after he won they attacked him for eating a burger. Then they attacked his daughter for wearing her own line of jewelry somewhere. Its crazy.

    I know people have freedom of speech of course but there should be a line between freedom of speech and just attacking relentlessly because your mad. If I ran the country I'd call those who need to attack him 24/7 traitors to the country since they are indeed attacking the president. What I would do about it I don't know. Maybe send them to Canada since many said thats what they would do to begin with.

    Ok.
    If I have this correctly, CNN is fake.
    Is John McCain fake?
    Is Lindsey Graham fake?
    Is the Washington Post fake?
    Is MI6 fake?
    Is Orbis Business Intelligence fake?
    Is The Guardian fake?
    Is the NY Times fake?
    Is the CIA fake?
    Is the FBI fake?
    Is Trump's continual support for Putin fake?
    Is Trump's Secretary of State appointment having a $5 billion oil deal with the Russians a fake?
    Ever put together a jig-saw puzzle? If you do it right, you find that all the pieces end up fitting together.
