Since being elected, President Trump has been at war with both the deep state and the media.
CNN has been the worst media offender, oftentimes conniving with deep state officials.
And Trump just destroyed CNN and their pals in the deep state with one sentence.
President Donald Trump is known for refusing to hold back what’s on his mind.
It’s a big reason so many people love him, and why so many people hate him.
For anyone who unfairly represents him in the media, it is very bad.
Just days ago, President Trump went after James Clapper, calling him a “lying machine,” while attacking CNN, who is currently keeping Clapper on as a contributor.
James Clapper was taken on as a contributor just months after he used his position as Director of National Intelligence to give CNN and other left-wing media outlets cause to release the now highly discredited anti-Trump dossier.
Clapper also spoke to CNN’s Jake Tapper about the dossier prior to it being released to the public by BuzzFeed.
Despite it being well known that Clapper spoke to CNN about the dossier, he initially denied that happened.
Trump’s tirade against James Clapper comes in response to a Fox & Friends segment where former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino claimed that Clapper had been dishonest about the dossier.
Bongino called Clapper a “conniving snake” carefully choosing his every move with the ultimate goal of getting the dossier released to the media.
That appears to be exactly what he did.
While in communication with CNN he convinced Robert Mueller to brief the President on the dossier to use as pretext to release it to the public.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“President Donald Trump attacked James Clapper on Saturday morning calling him a “lying machine” and criticizing “fake news” CNN for keeping Clapper as a contributor.
Trump was responding to a “Fox & Friends” segment during which former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino claimed that Clapper had been dishonest about the Russian dossier.

Clapper, who had initially denied talking to the press about the dossier, admitted later that he had discussed it with CNN’s Jake Tapper. Bongino, referring to Clapper as a “conniving snake,” walked through the chain of events, suggesting that every move was intentional and designed to get the contents of the dossier released in the media.
Bongino also pointed out the efforts made by former FBI Director James Comey to further that goal, making it clear that he was not buying Comey’s answer to Fox News anchor Bret Baier regarding the dossier’s source of funding.”
James Clapper’s role in getting the Russia dossier released to the media shows just how dedicated he was to bringing down the President.
Despite the fact that the claims in the dossier were lies, and it was funded by his political opposition, he took advantage of his position of power to get it released in the media.
