Trump wants Washington Post reporter fired

Trump called for a Washington Post reporter to be fired for a (almost) misleading tweet which the reporter deleted just 20 minutes later.

David Weigel, the reporter in question, tweeted a photo of the crowd at Pensacola Bay during Trump's speech. The photo showed numerous empty seats. After being told by others that the photo had been taken before the venue actually filled up, he immediately deleted the photo and apologized to Trump, saying "Sure thing: I apologize. I deleted the photo after @dmartosko told me I'd gotten it wrong." Weigel later also tweeted that "It was a bad tweet on my personal account, not a story for Washington Post. Very fair to call me out."

Trump's "mature" answer? He said that, "@daveweigel of the Washington Post just admitted that his picture was a FAKE (fraud?) showing an almost empty arena last night for my speech in Pensacola when, in fact, he knew the arena was packed (as shown also on T.V.). FAKE NEWS, he should be fired."

Now, obviously this time the photo was, while not being fake, but an early photo taken before the event actually started. Whether it was tweeted knowing or not, we don't know. However, the action taken afterwards, and the quick removal of the tweet/photo should show you that Weigel took responsibility for it...

Now, let's get to Trump's tweets where he has been lying. You can start with the crowd size pictures during his inauguration speech. He was lying about that. You can see all of is knowingly false statements on Politifact website.

If Trump calls a reporter to be fired for one misleading tweet that he quickly deleted, and also apologized for, shouldn't Trump call for the president to be fired, the president who has lied so many times nobody can even count the lies anymore?

Bad puppy!
