President Trump went after NBC reporter Peter Alexander today calling him biased and not credible.
Trump, speaking to reporters before he headed to an event in Kentucky, started off taking aim at the New York Times.
“I think the New York Times now has totally lost credibility,” the president said.
“They’ve given up on the Russian collusion delusion. And now what they’re doing, they’re trying the racist deal.
And that’s not gonna work because I am the least racist person ever to serve in office. OK?
I am the least racist person. But the New York Times, they’re trying everything they can. It is a totally dishonest newspaper. It’s a paper that really has lost tremendous credibility.”
Peter tried to chime in with a question about Trump Obama and Russia and the G-7 but Trump waved him off:
“If you’d stop being an organ of the Democrats. This guy is the most biased reporter, NBC,” Trump said.
“I used to like them, but they are the most biased. Peter, you should be able to ask a question, same question, in a better way.
You are so obviously biased, and that’s why the public has no confidence in the media.”
Trump then moved over to take a question from a CNN reporter: “You know who else goes out? NBC News. NBC News has less credibility, in my opinion, with guys like you than CNN.
I think CNN has more credibility than NBC News. Did you hear what I said? I said you have more credibility than this guy.
And that’s not saying much. You know why? ‘Cause I don’t think you have very much credibility.
But I will tell you this, NBC, I think, has less credibility than CNN. That’s not saying much, but that’s the way I feel.”
