READ: Reaction from the media to Trump's presser
President Trump went off today and it was pure entertainment!
The media wasn't exactly eating it up. Here's some reaction from TV and the Twittersphere.
“It’s sort of our job to let you know when things are said that aren’t true. This president keeps telling untrue things and he does it every single time he’s in front of a microphone … some of them aren’t really big, but they’re coming from the president, said Shep Smith of Fox News.
FWIW, Republicans on the Hill were panicked behind the scenes by Trump's performance today.

“It was complaints about the media. At one point he said the leaks were real but the news is fake, which doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. He said things that were not true," said CNN's Jake Tapper.
Listening to that Trump presser was like eating bad chicken. I want to stay informed, but it's not worth the cramps and night sweats.

So Trump axed Flynn b/c the media falsely accused him of something the president would have told him to do if Flynn wasn't doing it anyway.
