Some folks just never get over their former employer. President Donald Trump threw some evening shade on NBC and its cable news outlet tonight, tweeting that both “are going crazy” and “are truly the Opposition Party.”
The former host of NBC’s The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice even threw in a slam at an MSNBC rival — or was it a backhanded compliment? — exclaiming, “May even be worse than Fake News CNN, if that is possible!” Here’s what the leader of the free world wrote on Twitter:
His latest assault on the American media he has dubbed “the Enemy of the People” came less than an hour after Fox News Channel announced that Trump will sit for an interview Thursday with Sean Hannity on that outlet’s Hanniy program.
The tweet also comes the same day Trump stormed out of a meeting with Democratic leaders on the government shutdown, after they informed him in no uncertain terms that the newly installed majority will not fund his long-dreamed-about wall along the southern border. This went down during Day 19 of the impasse that has created the second-longest government shutdown in U.S. history. It would break the record if it holds through Saturday — which at this point appears about as likely as Saturday occurring.
