McConnell undercuts Trump's claim: 'Most news is not fake'



Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday undercut one of President Donald Trump's most-repeated claims, telling a group at the Louisville Chamber of Commerce that "most news is not fake."

Trump has consistently hammered media organizations for their critical coverage of both his candidacy and his presidency, accusing them of putting out "fake news" an accusation that has become a rallying cry for his supporters. His latest salvo came Monday morning when he retweeted a message about "fake news" attacks against him, writing, "Thank you, the very dishonest Fake News Media is out of control!"


But when asked on Monday about where he gets his news, McConnell who has been the target of Trump's ire in recent weeks said he has no trouble finding reliable sources.

"What I do every morning there a couple of services I look at that gives me a synopsis of articles," McConnell said. "It is my view that most news is not fake. But I do try to look at a variety of sources."

McConnell also said he reads a variety of sources that Trump has blasted, including the New York Times.

"I try not to fall in love with any particular source," McConnell said.

Trump has attacked McConnell throughout the August recess for Republicans' stalled agenda, most notably the failure to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

McConnell spoke with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin at the event in an effort to boost hopes for the GOP's next big legislative item tax reform.

The Senate majority leader also sought to reassure markets and other stakeholders that Congress will avoid a government default in the fall. "There is zero chance no chance we won't raise the debt ceiling," he said.

Well, Trump's been attacking him, so he's retaliating. Not too surprising. The Republicans who are truly able to think far enough ahead to 2018 are separating themselves from Trump. (Then there's Louie Gohmert, who can't see as far as today, but he's a moron.)

McConnell is a fake politician so he probably does know fake news when he sees it.

Aaaaand.....

This will now be the fourth time we've agreed.

When he's got his serious face on, I want to punch nail holes through his neck skin and lace it all up.

When he's smiling, I want to do the same except add a couple of nail holes for his lips.

He has got to go.
