Donald Trump claims that the New York Times is losing a fortune. NYT is more than happy to fact check that for him.

Unfortunately for Trump the New York Times immedaitely had access to information that refutes his statement. 

Courtesy of HuffPo:

President Donald Trump was hit with a fact-check on Sunday after declaring that The New York Times was “losing a fortune” and would soon be “out of business.”

Trump tweeted that the Times ― his hometown’s paper of record and one of his favorite media targets ― had “zero credibility” and would fold “soon after I leave office.”

Minutes later, Peter Baker, the chief White House correspondent for the Times, tweeted this fact-check:

Actually, the New York Times and Washington Post have both been knocking it out of the park business wise and journalistically. 

I have a subscription to both, and will continue to support them for years to come. 

See, not everything that Trump touches turns to shit.

    “The negatives of Trump’s demagoguery now clearly outweigh the positives of his leadership, and it is imperative that Americans unite to prevent him from serving another four years in office.” – “My public praise of the man was over the top at times, but my private estimation of him was more measured. I thought Trump, despite his warts, could bring a pragmatic, entrepreneurial approach to the Oval Office,” Scaramucci wrote. “I thought he could be the reset button Washington needed to break through the partisan sclerosis. I thought he would govern in a more inclusive way than his campaign rhetoric might have indicated, and I naively thought that, by joining the administration, I could counteract the far-right voices in the room. I thought wrong. And, yes, many of you told me so.”

    Key Trump Policies Show a Person Mentally Disordered: Megalomaniacal, Paranoid, and Psychopathic

    The U.S. president is widely mischaracterized as a cynical politician maneuvering for personal power and financial gain. Yet the situation is far more dangerous.

    The Longer Trump Stays in Office, the More Americans Oppose His Views

    The president is reshaping Americans’ political views, just not the way he intended.

    “It is important to call these actions what they are: the personal decisions of an incontinent individual, not the result of legislative action or the outcome of any semblance of public deliberation. Remarkably, 230 years after its constitution was adopted, the United States suffers from one-man rule.”

    “Trump is widely mischaracterized as a cynical politician maneuvering for personal power and financial gain. Yet the situation is far more dangerous. Trump is mentally disordered: megalomaniacal, paranoid, and psychopathic. This is not name-calling. Trump’s mental condition leaves him unable to keep his word, control his animosities, and restrain his actions. He must be opposed, not appeased.”

    Hannity Blasts White Supremacy Following Portland Rallies: ‘You Have No Place in This Society’

    “Police need to stop this and end it and drop it right when it starts,” Hannity continued. “This kind of behavior is unacceptable. It’s insane, it’s despicable, it’s violent, its extremism and it’s hurting our country.”

    Donald Trump knows little to nothing about money. Unless it is has to do with a con. He says he reads a lot but that is hard to believe. He does not like the NYT because he can’t fire them.

    OT- Barron Trump is allowed to be seen in public again. Barron can’t do public speaking, however, it appears he can talk.
    His dad looks like a short dumpy old guy next to Melania’s super size spike heels and Barron, the teen.

    Boys around 13 years old on average measure around 5-foot-2 and continue to grow until around 17.

    “Trump’s postponement of the official state visit indefinitely is in itself a completely unheard of step, a diplomatic insult and deeply ominous to the state throughout transatlantic cooperation,”

    Columnist Jarl Cordua, meanwhile, describes Trump as a “questionable real estate agent with frayed morals” and said that Denmark must not allowed itself to be bullied by him.

    “The US president apparently feels called to take Denmark’s hospitality and respect for granted,” “It is simply disrespectful to the extent that it must have consequences.”
