Wait, does Dan Rather agree with Jack Nicholson's character in the movie?

Also, it's interesting that the context of Trump's quote keeps being changed. Trump calls "Fake News" the enemy of the people, not all news.

Californians Puzzled by Trump’s Failure to Blame Wildfires on Hillary

SACRAMENTO, California (The Borowitz Report)—Californians were baffled on Monday by a series of tweets by Donald J. Trump in which he utterly failed to blame the state’s current wildfires on Hillary Clinton.

In interviews with residents up and down the Golden State, Californians agreed with the assessment of Harland Dorrinson, a Modesto native, that Trump’s failure to pin the fires on Clinton was “nothing short of bizarre.”

“When he said that there wasn’t enough water to put out the fires, I naturally assumed he was going to accuse Hillary Clinton of sneaking into California and somehow stealing all of our water,” Dorrinson said. “It was so confusing when he didn’t.”

“I thought that the wildfires would be a perfect opportunity for Trump to accuse Hillary of being anti-water and pro-fire, but he didn’t even mention her,” Tracy Klugian, who lives in San Jose, said. “Maybe he’s really distracted by all this Russia stuff and he’s off his game.”

Carol Foyler, who lives in Monterey, said that Trump’s failure to accuse Hillary Clinton of single-handedly causing the wildfires left her shaken and appalled.

“At a time when many of us in California are suffering from historic wildfires, we look to the President of the United States to blame them on Hillary Clinton,” she said. “And he let us down.”

Which he defines and anyone who isn't a Trump sycophant. Anyone who dares to criticize him on anything whatsoever.

"Fake News" as he uses the term simply means anyone in the news who he doesn't like.

He has as much as admitted it:



"Negative" news about me = "fake". That's how he sees it.

That is your opinion but I have no intention of challenging it here.

You are not a mind reader and neither is Dan Rather. As a consummate journalist, and not at all purveyor of fake and manufactured news, Dan Rather should know better than misquote a President like that. Particularly when context changes the meaning so much.

Once again you moved the goalposts.

That tweet does not support your original claim that Trump defines fake news as "anyone who isn't a Trump sycophant" or "anyone in the news who he doesn't like".

It was that claim that I called bullshit. And I still stand by that call.

Secondly, most of that negative news is indeed fake, as in painting a false or misleading picture, or is prejudiced opinion masquerading as news.

So again I call bullshit on your interpretation.
