White House to cancel Times, Post subscriptions after Trump's 'Hannity' comments

https://www.politico.com/news/2019/10/22/white-house-cancel-times-post-subscriptions-054314

The White House said Tuesday it will not be renewing subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post, two papers the president frequently attacks as “fake” and which he suggested canceling the previous night in a TV appearance.

Monday on Fox News’ “Hannity,” President Donald Trump called the Times “a fake newspaper” and said “we don’t even want it in the White House anymore.”

“We’re going to probably terminate that and The Washington Post,” Trump said. “They’re fake.”

Trump’s “terminate” remarks were interpreted by journalists on Twitter as meaning canceling paper subscriptions, rather than kicking reporters out of the White House. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham confirmed to POLITICO that he was talking about subscriptions, “which we won’t be renewing.”’

Representatives from the Post and Times declined to comment.

While Trump routinely blasts the news media, he seems to care deeply about how major news outlets — especially the Times, his hometown newspaper — cover him.

3. Did his reader finally quit?

Even if he can read the words it takes a great deal of time to make someone that stupid understand what was read to him and he cannot be bothered.

5. Thin skinned, fake tanned POS

He is so self centered, entitled and delusional he actually thinks he gets to set the bar. He can't wrap his pea brain on the idea that others do not see things as he instructs.
He does not live in the real world and never has.
