The internet is exploding today after President Donald Trump took to Twitter, as he does too often, to one again criticize the media. However, this time, he stepped back to attack the way that the media treats his hard working representatives. Take a look:
It is amazing how rude much of the media is to my very hard working representatives. Be nice, you will do much better!— President Trump (@POTUS) March 13, 2017
Let's take a look at some of our favorites, shall we?
