President Trump slammed the ‘failing’ New York Times on Thursday over its recent phony article covering the New England Patriot’s White House reception, saying the liberal paper “just got caught in a big lie.”
The NY Times' false report that featured a phony side-by-side comparison of ‘crowd size’ at the White House celebrations in 2015 and 2017 was widely panned on social media, especially by the New England Patriots themselves.
“These photos lack context. Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs. In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn,” said the official Patriots twitter account.
It didn’t take long for the President himself to weigh-in on the issue, blasting the NY Times on twitter for yet another phony report.
