It was a total disaster, as Trump excoriated the media in general, and CNN in particular.

Two sources described the hour-long meeting at New York City’s Trump Tower in catastrophic terms to The New York Post.

“It was like a f—ing firing squad,” one source said of the meeting. “Trump started with [CNN President] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed.’”“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down.”

The Post’s second source said the meeting included 30 to 40 people, and said Trump also took aim at ABC and NBC.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room full of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong,'” the source said. “He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about a female correspondent who got it wrong…

Top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway disputed the New York Post story.

“No, that’s not true at all,” she said on Bloomberg Politics’ ‘With All Due Respect.” “I sat right to his left. He did not explode in anger. By the way, it’s an off-the-record meeting so whoever said that and mischaracterized it should think twice.”

    Why would anyone not believe he said these things in a private meeting when he has said all that and worse in public a hundred effing times?
    Here’s what I want to know, is the media going to have the guts to stand up to this miserable punk ? I’m very worried they will not. Same with elected Democrats.

  • Suzanne McFly

    Did Kellyanne just threaten the entire press industry?

    • whatthe46

      yes. why yes she did. and you know what, the press deserves what they get. (not saying they should be shut out). they gave him multi+ millions of dollars of free press, never called him out and now they are being told fk you. well, i don’t care!

    • anothertoothpick

      They think the won the battle, and in fact they did.

      But with their inexperience and hubris they are going to lose the war.

      If this story is true, this is major mistake number one.

      Remember Nixon’s war on the press??

      • whatthe46

        it won’t matter if they don’t grow set. i have 2 mosquito bite bumps bigger than their balls.

        • anothertoothpick

          Yeah! I too wonder were the line will be drawn on this narcissist.

      • Suzanne McFly

        I am hoping they are destroyed, we need to remove any hope of ever making a come back.

      Yes. I took it to mean that a lawsuit could be filed against anyone who broke ranks.

  • labman57

    So how long before Donnie loses it completely and tries to federalize the entire news media industry?

    • Red Mann

      The Trump News Network, you hear what we want you to.

  • anothertoothpick

    He is making a lot of enemies of some powerful people.

    People with deep pockets and long memories.

    Not a good way to fly

  • amersham1046

    The media are going to have a field day digging up Trumps rather ugly past

    • anothertoothpick

      Maybe they will press a little harder on those income tax documents.

      There must be some pretty damaging info there..

    • whatthe46

      fk the media. they helped build this bastard. they had 18 months of crap and they were sitting on a lot of it.

      • anothertoothpick

        You make a good point.

        The media makes a lot more money with pumpkin head around.

        That is the reason the banks did not sink his ship during his last bankruptcy.

      • anothertoothpick

        It was the CBS news chief that admitted “trump may be bad for the country but he sure is good for our bottom line”.

        • whatthe46

          well, if we get fucking nuked there won’t be a damn country!

          • anothertoothpick

            Yeah! But the shareholders are very happy.

            And the bonuses are rolling in.

  • Foundryman

    One of the problems as I see it is the fact the media would agree to an “off the record” meeting with the President -Elect of the fucking United States!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF???
    How about holding the PRESIDENT to a little bit of TRANSPARENCY???
    Jesus H Christ this is so messed up in so many ways…no wonder they left every one of his lies go and concentrated on freaking emails!!

  • Foundryman

    The media letting Trump have an off the record meeting where he grinds them to bits and calls them all liars and use his presidential power to intimidate them down to their thongs just so they lose the last bit of credibility they have left, so none of America will believe a word they say about the new Fuhrer the next 4 years….nice going idiots!!

  • Willys41

    That this story comes from right-wing rag NY Post, owned by Rupert Murdoch, leads me to believe that I do not give a crap.

  • fahvel

    and if the press does not use this as permission to wreak havoc on the punkin head, they deserve all that they have been laughed at for already and much much more.

  • Böcker

    Trump being a whiny little bitch, what else is new?

  • oldfart

    This is sure to make the next White House Correspondents Dinner
    very lively or extremely dull.

  • Warman1138

    They helped make him, now they got to listen to him bitch, irony…… sucks too, even when you’re the press.
