President Tweety McTreason lashed out at Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts after he brought up his decision to get “rid of the pandemic office in the National Security Council.”
Roberts asked the president whether he would speak with former Vice President Joe Biden after noting that the Trump administration often talked about being left unprepared and without any plans in place to deal with a potential pandemic and then added the complaint from former Obama administration officials.
“They have said you got rid of the pandemic office in the National Security Council,” Roberts said.
“We didn’t do that,” Trump fired back. “That turned out to be a false story. Now you’re starting to go … what, are you working for CNN?”
“I’m pointing out what they have said and what you have said,” Roberts, who used to work for CNN before joining Fox News, said.
The president also swiped at Fox, remarking that “Fox isn’t so easy either, don’t kid yourself.”
“You know that’s a false story, what you just said is a false story… You shouldn’t be repeating a story you know is false,” he continued.
Roberts attempted to protest one more time, but Trump continued, “You shouldn’t be repeating a story that you know is false.”
