Trump at First 100 Days Rally: CNN, MSNBC ‘Are Fake News’


Saturday, President Donald Trump held a rally in Harrisburg, PA. Trump hammered the media, saying he is “thrilled” to be more than 100 miles away from the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which he referred to as “Washington’s swamp.” “I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington’s swamp, spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people,” Trump told the crowd before it broke out into a “USA!” chant. Trump then called media outlets like CNN and MSNBC “fake news.” “Media outlets like CNN and MSNBC are fake news,” he added. “They’re sitting and wishing in Washington. They are watching right now, and they would love to be with us right here tonight. But they are trapped at the dinner, which will be very, very boring. But next year, maybe we’ll make it more exciting for them in Washington and we’ll show up, but we have a good chance of showing up here again next year, too.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

During his Saturday Harrisburg, PA rally, President Donald Trump addressed Obamacare, proclaiming it dead. Trump said the replacement will be passed quickly and will have lower deductibles and premiums than “failure” Obamacare. Partial transcript as follows: Obamacare’s dead, it’s gone. The increases were massive last year. They’re going to be bigger this year and the insurance companies are fleeing. One of the top people in the insurance industry said, “Obamacare is in a death spiral.” There’s nothing they can do. So they can’t compare something to it because it won’t be there very long. Believe me, can’t be there very long. It’s not working. It’s been a failure. Under Obamacare, we have seen double and triple digit hikes in premiums and many Americans left with only a single insurer to choose from and now many of those insurers are fleeing also. You have places like the great state of Tennessee where I left two weeks ago where half of the state already has no insurance carrier … and many others. so, Obamacare is a catastrophe created exclusively by the Democrats in Congress. They know it’s no good, they know it’s not working. And by the way, we’re going to get something

Joy Reid: We Give White Men Credit for Intelligence That Is ‘Divorced’ From Reality
