Donald Trump’s open feud with the media took an “in your face” turn on Sunday’s “Face the Nation,” where he mocked the show directly to its host, Josh Dickerson.
During the wide-ranging interview which included questions on healthcare and increasing tensions with North Korea, Dickerson asked Trump about his statements from previous interviews where he said he thought being president “would be easier.” After a meandering response, Trump took his opportunity to take another shot at the press.
“You know it’s very funny when the fake media goes out – which we call the mainstream media – which sometimes, I must say, is you,” Trump said. Dickerson grinned and asked, “You mean me personally?”
“I love your show,” Trump responded. “I call it ‘Deface the Nation.’ But, you know, your show is sometimes not exactly correct.”
