President Donald Trump on Thursday lashed out at the so-called “Fake News,” accusing them of colluding with “Do Nothing Democrats” and the “Radical Left” in trying to steal the 2020 election.
“We can’t let the Fake News, and their partner, the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, get away with stealing the Election. They tried that in 2016. How did that work out?” Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon as the U.S. COVID-19 death toll topped 62,000.

In a late-night Wednesday tweet, Trump attacked CNN over the network’s coverage of former national security advisor Michael Flynn, one of the first Trump officials to be ensnared in the special counsel’s investigation into Russian election interference who is now trying to withdraw his guilty plea.
“[email protected] doesn’t want to speak about their persecution of General Michael Flynn & why they got the story so wrong. They, along with others, should pay a big price for what they have purposely done to this man & his family. They won’t even cover the big breaking news about this scam!” Trump tweeted.
Trump also attacked MSNBC’s Brian Williams on Thursday, blasting the host as a “true dummy” and calling him “dumber than hell.”
Trump’s tweets come hours after a report detailed a heated exchange between Donald Trump and his election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, over a recent drop in the president’s poll numbers resulted in Trump threatening Parscale with a lawsuit.
“As he huddled with advisers on Friday evening, President Donald Trump was still fuming over his sliding poll numbers and the onslaught of criticism he was facing for suggesting a day earlier that ingesting disinfectant might prove effective against coronavirus,” reports CNN.
“Within moments, the President was shouting — not at the aides in the room, but into the phone — at his campaign manager Brad Parscale, three people familiar with the matter told CNN. Shifting the blame away from himself, Trump berated Parscale for a recent spate of damaging poll numbers, even at one point threatening to sue Parscale. It’s not clear how serious the President’s threat of a lawsuit was,” according to the news outlet.
