Trump called a media summit today only to roast the sh*t out of all of them. As I write this I can only imagine the looks on their faces. What they thought would be a meeting about the access the media would receive during the Trump presidency, turned out to be a surprise media “roast.”
“It was like a f–ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.
A second source confirmed that it was just a meeting called to ridicule the media about how they have acted leading up to the election.
“The meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks.”
Oh man, I wish I was there to see “Wolfy” Blitzer’s face.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,”
“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.
The meeting was “off the record” which means the people who attended were not supposed to talk about the substance of the conversations that took place. But I guess this at least was just too much to keep secret, and I would have paid good money to see this unfold. Definitely worth more than “Hamilton” tickets.
