President Trump is set to honor the best fake news reporting of 2017.

In a tweet Tuesday, the president said he’s announcing the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year on Monday.

He added, the subjects being covered are “dishonesty and bad reporting” in various categories from the fake news media.

This comes after the president previously asked his supporters to help him award a “fake news trophy.”

Many polls indicate a majority of Americans believe the president is treated unfairly by the press.

  • DCBlueBlood

    Looks like the FAKE NEWS AWARDS will be CANCELLED !!!

  • Rosalyn Portello

    I thought he was going to announce it on The View!!!

  • Bragar

    This is SO awesome…

    • DCBlueBlood

      Looks Like They’ll be CANCELLED … LMAO!

      “WARNING to White House staff: the president may be exempt from the rules at 5 CFR § 2635.701 et seq. on misuse of position BUT YOU ARE NOT,” tweeted Norm Eisen, who served as White House Special Counsel for Ethics in the Obama administration.

      In his message Eisen told White House staff that if they help the president deliver the awards they could risk violating provisions of the law that forbid the use of government time and money to harm some members of the media and help others.

      LMAO! Jail Time For Staffers LMAO!

    The Fakies…

  • Porkeating Crusader

    That sounds like a monumental task, judging which gutter-scum media organization is the scummiest.

  • facevalue

    The View should be up there with CNN as ”top donkey”… He should give a statue of a donkey as the prize…

  • YES

    The First Annual Goebbels Award
    presents to the winner the golden toilet plunger: The Goebby!

  • BillVA

    While some may call this “unpresidential,” there is no greater enemy of free societies worldwide than the corrupt media we have.

    Other than appointing competent judges, taking on the global propaganda machine is the best thing he could do for us all.

    • DCBlueBlood

      Looks Like They’ll be CANCELLED — JAIL TIME FOR STAFFERS LMAO!

        Wow.

        The hypocrisy is infuriating to the point of making me want to do something I shall not type on a public forum.

        • DCBlueBlood

          Make sure you wear your Pointy Hoods LOL!

  • A K

    I place my bet that CNN (Clinton News Network) comes in a very tight race for first place.

  • Goonie

    Trump is the guy pulling off all the masks at a masquerade party!

    • DCBlueBlood

      FAKE NEWS AWARDS … CANCELLED – POSSIBLE JAIL TIME FOR WH STAFFERS !!!

  • Scott Henke

    Please sell tickets! I’ve got a Trump Collection tie I want you to sign.

  • RuthAnn40

    I wonder if they’ll have a Red Carpet with interviews beforehand and all the participants showing off their new gowns and tuxedos; just like at the Oscars?

  • Big Al from Big D

    Go Trump Go!

  • tophat1984

    This man knows how to sell ‘the Presidency’..and that is a good thing 🙂

  • Rufus Firefly

    The most prolific purveyor of lies in Washington DC is one Donald J Trump.

  • john smith

    This is absolutely the greatest thing President Trump has done up to this point. Can you even begin to imagine how the lib news people are shaking in their boots. I can’t stand the wait. It’s not going to be easy to pick one of the many fake news channels or papers. My guess would be CNN but the post is there with them. Come to think of it there are so many how can one choose.

  • Al Lejdly

    I nominate Concocted News Network with Never Yielding Truth as the runner up for second and finally, The Washedup Post for third place.

  • Derek Dominico

    Could be CNN getting the top spot.
    When CNN have a panel guests about Trump, it’s all gossip the way their discussions goes.

  • TexanForever

    This is going to be tough. There’s so many thoroughly bogus BS to sift through. Hard to pick the best ones. Meadow muffins and trail truffles at every step.
    .

  • Buster

    Poor Sarah Sanders.

  • CD Ard

    Cannibas News Network will get the top fake news award. Although it could tie with the New York Times.

  • Arcanumone

    Trump is the Real Deal. Finally a President with the sack to kick the media in the ass as has been so long overdue.

  • Rick

    Gotta love this guy – I can’t wait to see who wins! This made my day!

  • ShemSilber2

    This will have to be one of the most hilarious events since the Milton Berle show! Of course, the lamestream media won’t think so, because they will be the brunt of the joke. It will be quite interesting to see who the “WINNERS” are! Whoever were the best liars, no doubt. HA!

    • RuthAnn40

      Boy……I’m old! I actually remember Milton Berle!

  • Scotty

    No doubt the left will have a field day with this. Good. It will show everyone how partisan childish stupid they all are.

  • Dan

    President Trump knows how to squeeze there shanokies and squall like a pig.
    Got to love this man.
    Another 4 years 2020
    Oh I for got Deliverance is on.

  • maurinemwheatley

    I’m glad he has the ability to ‘tweet’….that’s the only way we really know what he is saying and doing! Too much half-truth and non-reporting going on; or, lop-sided reporting!!!! I’m sick of MSNBC, CNN, ABC etc when I listen to them to see what they have to say I am appalled at their innuendo and half-truth!

    • Scotty

      It should be illegal to broadcast lies by ommission. That’s what the left does.

  • Weary Warrior

    Love this! May be only Fox will cover, but it’s going to be a hoot!

    • john smith

      I will be watching!

  • Transpare

    Everyone at CNN is looking forward to the occasion, and have sought only the most progressive fashion designers to dress them up for this moment of high honor.

    • CD Ard

      Yes, the ladies will be wearing Cannibas leaf silver earrings.

  • Doyoureally Wanttoknow

    Could be better than Oscars

  • Lenny Woodson

    Hilarious!

    The MSM has carefully planned its attendance at the “Fake News Awards’, being held in the White House press room.
    They have sworn all their reporters to absolute silence, under penalty of ‘Extreme Sexual Harassment’, by none other than Weinstein, hisownself.
    And arranged that the only live mike in the area will be in Trumps hands.
    ‘Let the Fake News begin, we are ready’, the MSM chorused.

  • Bert Alvarado

    Include USA Today!

  • Stonecrusher

    Sarah Sanders should have said that the entire MSM is invited since it’s all about them..

  • internettoughguy

    Donald Trump’s cult followers look at him and see a “tough guy” and a “fighter” who “hits back 10 times as hard,” I see a whiny, pathologically insecure little girl who spends all her time crying about how “unfair” everyone is to her. Because of her fragile self-esteem she sees any criticism as a personal attack and responds by lashing out in a blind rage.

    • Wanda

      Where did you go toughguy? Did your fragile self-esteem get the best of you when someone holds you accountable. Don’t hide…I want to play some more.

    • CD Ard

      You just described Hillary Clinton.

    • Deny

      Obviously you DON’T GET our President. Sucks to be you!

  • intimeforthedime

    BwaaaHahahahaaaaa, I LOVE YOU TRUMP!
    Dang I would love to drink a beer with him and his family.

  • ray stagger

    Ya know .. some say Trump has lost his mind .. BUT .. he is the ONLY one willing to say the truth! All the others live in an imaginary world.

    Not only is he wonderful as a President, but he is entertaining and makes my laugh because they just can’t intimidate him. From the first time he leaned into the mic (when Hillary was talking) and whispered, “You’ll be in jail.” … I broke up laughing because he said what we all were hoping would happen, and it may, yet!

    • internettoughguy

      Watching Donald Trump debase the office of President of the United States doesn’t amuse me in any way. But for some reason his cult followers LOVE it. The more he behaves like a bully a boor and a thug the louder they hoot and holler.

      • anne stromberg

        I support our President and I am not a cult follower, by any stretch of the imagination. I want to see the corruption in our media ended. He is doing exactly what we the people elected him to do. Get over your bias and give the office of the President the respect it has not had under Obama.

        • Scotty

          That clown is incapable of that. I blocked him long ago, as have many others. You might want to consider doing the same.

          • ShemSilber2

            Thanks for the good cousel, Scotty. (If you’re a Scot, we are similarly afflicted, HA!) I got tired of his cockamamie nonsense also.

          • SWSapphire

            Ole ITTguy stated he was new on the Tax bill becoming law forum; yet it showed him as having over 24,000 comments at the time. If he really was new, that means he should have well over a 100,00 by now… LOL

          • Scotty

            If I block someone, it’s based on my conversation with them, or their statements to others. I rarely look at past posts.

          • SWSapphire

            Me, either, as he was spouting out crap, after telling a few truths. But he blatantly lied when he said he was new, and some treated him w/kid gloves b/c they took him at his word that he was new to this whole thing of posting. He had quite a few people falling for it. (Though it was my 1st time seeing him post here, he didn’t sound new, so I looked at how many posts he had.)
            However, I didn’t point it out right away. I didn’t point anything out actually. I eventually blocked him, noting it publicly, but that was it. Then a few days ago I mentioned about the ‘new’ guy’s many posts. He was posting outrageous stuff, which I could tell by the response(as I still don’t see his posts.)
            My post above is only the 2nd time I pointed out that discrepancy, which I think is enough.(Though I’ll edit it out since I’m much newer & no one appears interested in it.)

            I posted it in hopes of others seeing he was deceptive all along. It’s another possible tool in finding the ‘insincere’ early on- when they can catch someone in such a simple falsehood- esp. when that someone posts lots of partially true & partially conservative posts, then goes the opposite direction, sometimes catching truly new posters offguard.
            I wasn’t trying to influence you – I was agreeing w/your blocking of the person.

          • Scotty

            I never thought you were trying to influence me. I was agreeing with you! 🙂

          • HML

            Probable paid poster, 70 posts a day for almost 2 years. Or, he doesn’t have anything else to do (-;

      • ShemSilber2

        Are you so far out in left field that you don’t even know where the ball park is? He’s the farthest thing from a bully and a boor, unless you want to call telling the truth boorish and bullying. Wake up and smell the coffee already, and get over your TDS, please, for your own sake.

      • CD Ard

        You just described Obama.

      That would make me very happy, along with more than half of America.

    • SWSapphire

      Along w/Hill’s ‘He’d have me locked up for everything if he was Pres.’ & candidate Trump’s classic response, “Why not?”

    • iwontell

      Hell I don’t care if he has lost it……..it’s the Greatest Show on Earth – can hardly wait for his “next act” shoving it down their throats day after day………

    Ha ha ha. You gotta love Trump. He knows how to bait the media and send them in a tizzy whenever he wants to amuse us. I love watching the media freak out over his tweets

    Trump is the man!

    • internettoughguy

      The man-baby.

      • mark abby

        ? Better than that girly man obama. I often thought obama was either a closet gay or just a little mamas boy

        You can call Trump a “man baby” but he knows exactly what he’s doing and why

        • meeester

          you said “girly man Obama”.
          I think the term they prefer is “girly person Obama”.
          Not sure what Mr Michelle prefers.

    • iwontell

      YEP the first thing on the “morning news” is “what did Trump” say today………

    Here is the strange thing about the media
    Rather
    Brzezinski
    Scarbrough
    Couric
    Brokaw
    Stephanopoulos
    And many more, are all members of the Council on Foreign Relations.
    Donald also has made numerous appointments from the CFR which seems to be a bit of dichotomy

  • Rufus Firefly

    Trumpie is pretty close to going off the rails. Indictments must be near.

  • Old Enough To Know

    Whether you like him or not he does tell some falsehoods. However, if he names specific networks I hope he has examples.

    • Daniel Shays

      millions of examples – literally!

    • All American

      You have got to LOVE HIM🇺🇸He is All about US🇺🇸

    • anne stromberg

      are you sleeping? The examples are out there for all to see. Get Real!

      • Old Enough To Know

        Why are you being nasty and ugly? I have been following and like our POTUS. As a retired military member and a Conservative, I am very proud of our country and our leader. My comment is to affirm the nay sayers who ask for proof, much like submitting references with college reports.

        • Scotty

          Understood. Thank you for your service sir.

    • Scotty

      His falsehoods are minor compared to the continuous blatently outrageous lies from the msm.

  • davej

    If the networks don’t cover this can they be considered “Fake”. After all they cover the Emmys, Grammys, Academy Awards and other Hollywood garbage as news. It’s a great idea, a real Catch 22. If the nets won’t cover it they’re fake, if they do cover it and try to spin it, they’re fake. If they try countering it when there is proof to the opposite, they’re fake. The only thing left is accept it, and learn how to tell the truth, without bias

    • All American

      All of those award themselves 😂
      This will be a hoot!! Our President doing the People’s work🇺🇸MAGA

    • Scotty

      Tell the truth without bias?! Never going to happen in life, not now, not ever.

      • ShemSilber2

        As my dad used to say, “Dream on…dream on…”

    • ShemSilber2

      Yes, indeed. They need to learn to report the news honestly, the way my high-school journalism teachers taught us. They would give the lot of these fake news reporters straight “F” on their report card and tell them to take the class again until they can get it RIGHT. If and when they learn to “Straighten up and Fly RIGHT!” then they will gain a respectable and respectful audience!

    • fed up with all this b.s

      A man who thinks!

    • Tango Uniform

      That would require them to contact their respective (not respectable) J-schools to request a refund or a do-over.

    • iwontell

      Well it proves one thing…….it’s not FAKE NEWS….it’s FAIRY TALES by MORONS that get PAID.

    Rasmussen Polls Americans Voted already and named FOX NEWS NO. 1 FAKE NEWS!

    You’re a little late to the FOX Fake News Awards Trump.

    Here’s a PERFECT EXAMPLE …

    Fox News Radio reported on a proposal by two Republican South Carolina lawmakers to erect a monument in honor of black Confederate soldiers, but according to a local newspaper, “records show the state never accepted nor recognized armed African-American soldiers during the Civil War,” a fact the Fox report did not mention.

    During the segment, headlines anchor Kevin Battle reported that “Lawmakers in South Carolina want to erect a new monument at the State House to honor some state residents who were never recognized for their service to the Confederacy, but this monument is unlike the others and would honor African-American Confederate soldiers.” But The State, a South Carolina newspaper, reported that according to historians and other experts, there are no documented accounts of black soldiers fighting for the Confederacy in South Carolina. There are, however, records of the state refusing to accept black soldiers. Additionally, South Carolina enforced laws “which prohibited African-Americans from carrying guns in the state’s service throughout the war.”

    FOX NEWS DESERVES THE FAKE NEWS TROPHY IT GOT 11/30/17!

    • Brandon

      That example is cute. But how about that time CNN and it’s producers got caught on video admitting they don’t have any Russian collusion evidence and they are just reporting the story for ratings. Highly doubt the example you’ve provided has cost taxpayers millions of dollars and had an investigation for over a year for which they’ve found more damning evidence against Hillary than Trump.

      • Burrito Smith

        I believe the Clinton News Network (CNN) got the Nothing Burger award for the collusion story if I remember right… what was that DBAG’s name? Ah yes! crybaby @$$ Van Jones.

    • Kyle Smith

      I agree. But what you, and many like you, do not understand is that Fox is not the news of the “conservative” anymore and has not been for some time. It always cracks me up when I see a post like yours ranting against Fox like it is 2002 or something. Fox has been part of the MSM propaganda machine for some time now. Their role is to play the “opposing view”. But the trick is to still put out the same narratives as the rest of the MSM but just act like you disagree. The only thing that matters is getting the “narrative” out there. It gives it “credibility”. No one I know has trusted Fox for at least 5 years if not more. Hope that helps.

      • All American

        We like Fox in the morning, the 5 if Juan is replaced by Geraldo, Laura Ingraham, Jesse Waters, Greg Gutfeld, Judge Jeanine and Hannity.
        The rest no.
        OANN Graham Ledger and Liz Wheeler are awesome!

        • Gnome Sane?

          It’s OAN all the time for me. Personally, I stopped watching Fox News after the first debates. I do drop in on Hannity every once in a while though, especially when one of his “tick tock” sessions is about to happen. But yeah…my TV stays parked on OAN if I’m not watching some motorsports. 😉

          • All American

            OAN is the BEST🇺🇸👍🏻

    • CD Ard

      Top ten, plus honorable mentions for others. Newspapers, reporters, magazines, tv….all of them.

  • lagun

    This stuff is beneath the Office of the POTUS.
    someone take his cell phone away.
    Yeah I voted for him, but this childishness is getting old.

    • Kyle Smith

      I may agree I wish for a different style in handling this. But, I also am very concerned about what I have seen from the media over the past year as for as bias goes. In the words of Edmunde Burke “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” If you take away his cell phone than good men will do nothing to stop the media from lying to all of us. Just think, if Hillary had won, we would most likely not know how bad the bias in the media was/is.

      • HML

        MSM bias has been apparent for a couple decades…………..

        • Kyle Smith

          Not like this though. They do not even pretend anymore.

            No, not like now. It’s blatant now, but it has been apparent for a long while……

      • All American

      Yes!! And there’s gonna be a whole new batch of entertaining ‘Compilation’ vids. watching the crybabies caught reporting lies from the past yr., along w/screaming & meltdowns when the winners of the newest ‘news’ awards are announced.

      • iwontell

        YEAH………wait for the NITE TIME Comedians with their MAJOR BS……..
        It really “piss*s” me off just to see them when I’m “flipping channels”
        A “tree and rope” comes to mind…………all of them

        • SWSapphire

          Oh, I NEVER watch those hypocrite/idiots on late night TV or clips from ytube. But the compilations of those saying Trump would never win the nomination, then again saying he would never be Pres., then W.Blitzer & others having to announce each time a state was won, and finally announce Trump won… and all those talentless dingbats claiming they would leave the country. Not a single one has left permanently. A few left to do overseas concerts, but came home to… their home, the U.S.

          So now it’s time for a new set of compilations featuring MSM caught in lies, being wrong over & over, and throwing a major tantrum if they win an award.
          (Oh, yeah, J. Kimmel having young women put their hands down his pants on his ‘Man Show’ to find money… disgusting. Then puts Trump down for comments re what he had personally found women liked. Hypocrite to the max! I would think even Kimmel fans would be sick of the same old same old. Kimmel, Colbert and company need to go back to comedian school.)

    • iwontell

      Oh I’m SURE the “F” Media will have their “VERSION” of what he said – it will be amusing the dozen different stories of the same STORY.

      • landwell

    Can’t wait to see this. Hope its televised. MSNBC and CNN should be top contenders.

      It would smash NFL ratings that’s for sure.

      • kaiju

        What happened to all those NFL kneeling stories? Those thugs are just as disrespectful as ever why aren’t they in the news anymore?

        • Daniel Shays

          The lack of attendance has been news, but not on the DNC state run media.

        • ray stagger

          Cause .. the news would have to report the lack of attendance too .. so they skip it.

        • TexanForever

          Because the stories were beginning to backfire on ’em.

          By the way, when will Casperdick be signed on by someone?
