President Trump told a CNN reporter today that he’s changing his nickname for the network today from “fake news” to “very fake news.”
During a press conference in which he named names and put the media on notice, Trump told CNN reporter Jim Acosta, “I’m changing it from fake news.”
As Acosta asked a question, Trump continued, “Very fake news,” as the room — including Acosta — burst out into laughter.
Trump went on to tell the media that “the public doesn’t believe you people anymore.”
He urged the media to be honest because the American people deserve it.

“Maybe I had something to do with that, I don’t know,” Trump said.
“If you were straight, I would be your biggest booster. I would be your biggest fan in the world, including bad stories about me.”
