Trump wants reporter fired for posting phoney photo

Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel became Trump's most recent target on Saturday after the president demanded that he apologize for tweeting a photo of an empty arena before a Trump rally in Florida that had been taken hours before the event started.

Politics reporter David Weigel deleted the tweet after it was pointed out to him that the photo was actually taken long before the venue filled up - but not before Trump shared a screenshot of the tweet to his 44.4 million Twitter followers. According to U.S. media reports, these pictures instantly went viral on the web thus attracting the President's attention. "Demand apology & retraction from FAKE NEWS WaPo!" "Was confused by the image of you walking in the bottom right corner", he tweeted.

"Very little discussion of all the purposely false and defamatory stories put out this week by the Fake News Media", the POTUS wrote in an early morning tweet.

The topic of "fake news", a favorite of the president's coined for that which paints him unfavorably or that he disagrees with, has been covered at length all week.

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", he added.

The weapons and character roster is apparently "stellar" and even more so when "combined with a simple control layout". The developers say that the game is a return to the roots of the original and takes place in the 16th century.

Trump has also taken aim at ABC News' Brian Ross, who erroneously reported that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that he, as a candidate, had directed Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 election.

Mr Spicer said at the time the actual number who attended was unknown - before insisting nonetheless that the new President had attracted "the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration" anywhere in the world.

CNN's Friday afternoon correction came hours after the Washington Post published a report based on a copy of the email obtained by the newspaper's reporters.

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. "Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public".

So when is Trump going to acknowledge his crowd size lie?
