 “They suck, but I still need someone to go to brunch with,” Trump said of CNN and other Fake News outlets.

“They suck, but I still need someone to go to brunch with,” Trump said of CNN and other Fake News outlets.

(Washington, D.C.) Striking a conciliatory tone to appease triggered libs, President Trump toned down his rhetoric aimed at the lying Fake News media, calling them the “Frenemy of the People" today.

“They still do me dirty all the time,” Trump said from the Rose Garden of the White House today. “It’s, like, I'm always there for them, but then, when I need something, they're all, like, 'not now…or I'm sorry, what?’ It's annoying and so random.”

The President had been accused of stoking anger and hatred of the media among his followers in the wake of the Sayoc bomb mailings and the synagogue mass murder in Pittsburgh over the weekend.

Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders explained the President's new position with regards to the press. “It’s like we have their back, but they don't have ours; but we still need someone to go to brunch or the movies with, you know?” she said. “ Like, we know we're going to get burned, but that's just the way it is sometimes. I'm not going to brunch by myself and look like a weirdo.”

“They need us as much as we need them,” the President went on to say. “They know that. Without me, they'll be back to reporting on things like, who's hosting the awards show and why they're wrong for it, and stuff like that. I think we can all agree, no one wants that.”
